If you are looking for family or dog friendly self catering holiday cottages and apartments to rent in Cornwall, Higher Trewithen is the perfect location.

Originally an old Cornish Farmstead dating back 300 years, Higher Trewithen’s farmhouse and outbuildings have been converted into comfortable and fully equipped self-catering cottages and apartments, to sleep between 2 and 8 people and many of our properties are dog friendly.

All cottages and apartments benefit from free WiFi. Bed linens, heating and electric are included in the price of your stay and your beds will be made up ready for your arrival. For stays of 7 nights or more, you will also find a Welcome Pack of local milk, bread and butter and a supply of tea, coffee and sugar. Towels are available for hire and we have a separate laundry room on site. Books, board games and sun loungers are also available free of charge.

Higher Trewithen is positioned very close to the centre of the Cornish peninsular, consequently many of Cornwall’s tourist attractions are within easy driving distance, with both the North and South coast less than 10 miles away. Falmouth on the South coast is 6 miles and the County town of Truro, with its stunning Cathedral and fantastic shops, is about 10 miles away. There are also many surfing beaches a short drive away, including Hayle and Portreath.

For many of our visitors, however, the principal attraction of the Higher Trewithen is the peace and quiet and ‘away from it all’ atmosphere of the beautiful countryside that surrounds us.
