About Higher Tregidden

Once part of Lord Falmouth’s estate, the cottages at Higher Tregidden are traditionally built Cornish farm buildings which have been converted to provide really comfortable accommodation while retaining their original charm and character. They are surrounded by our seven acres of meadow, orchard and woodland which visitors are welcome to explore and enjoy – all tucked away down a private lane.

Higher Tregidden lies in a secluded valley to the South of the Helford River on the Lizard Peninsula. The most southerly point of mainland Britain, the Lizard enjoys a milder climate thanks to the Gulf Stream, which makes Spring come early and Summer stay late. Beaches are among the finest - crystal clear water and pale sand are the very essence of this part of Cornwall.

The Lizard Peninsula is a place of contrasts. Dramatic cliffs around Kynance Cove and Lizard Point present a rugged face to the elements while, to the east, the softer, greener landscape of the Helford River reveals an entirely different side.

Fishing harbours and picture book villages give the visitor a taste of the unchanging ’off the beaten track’ Cornwall. The Helford River, Gillan Creek and the Bay offer superb sailing, boating and water sports for beginners and enthusiasts.

The Helford River is magical, a lush wooded world of inlets and creeks, of sub-tropical gardens and riverside villages to be explored by boat or on foot.

The South West Coastal Path winds around the entire Peninsula offering spectacular walking for ramblers of all ages and abilities.

we look forward to welcoming you to the very best of cornwall
