The village of Tregony in Cornwall is often referrred to as the 'gateway to the Roseland'. The exceptionally wide Fore Street is a relic from the days when this was a busy port and market town with considerable traffic. The port has long since silted up due in part to china clay workings up stream, but Tregony has retained its charm. Tregony has an unusual clock tower on Fore Street and the seventeenth century almshouses which boast an unusual wooden gallery. The site of a twelfth century Norman castle known as ‘Treg-ney’ from which the village got its name is situated on Tregony Hill.
The woods and riverside in the area between here and Ruan Lanihorne are fantastic to explore. The river is a firm favourite with ornithologists the magical Lamorran Woods are alive with bluebells in the spring. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and the city of Truro are only a short drive away from Tregony.

Well equipped and maintained, comfortable and quaint. Great garden and conservatory. Good base for all areas of Cornwall.
Guest from Shrewsbury stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely 2 bed cottage with living room, kitchen and downstairs bathroom. Washing machine/tumble drier, dishwasher in kitchen along with fridge/freezer. Gas, log burner effect fire in lounge and tv. Comfortable dining area with a good choice of dvds, cds and books. Small conservatory at the rear overlooking an enclosed garden. A very comfortable place to stay with plenty of notes dotted around to help when using various utilities. Excellent location for us to get to Falmouth, fowey, Eden project etc. All within a short drive. Kings Arms is a 2 minute walk away. They serve local beer and nice pub menu. Staff and customers alike very friendly offering tips for what to see and how best to get around. Was a little concerned about parking before our stay but even if you can't park right outside the cottage there is plenty of free on street parking on the surrounding Main Street. My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable week in Cornwall and would highly recommend this lovely little cottage.
Guest from Sheffield stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage was well located to explore all areas of Cornwall, it was well equipped and done very tastefully. The only negative point was the bathroom downstairs but this was not really a problem, the weather was good and we were able to sit in the garden and enjoy the conservatory. We didn't need the fire or heating but there were plenty of radiators should it turn chilly. We enjoyed the local pub and nearby walks and the gush and chip van that parked outside on Friday evening - would certainly recommend to family and friends

Lovely cottage to stay at. Great home comforts to come back to after busy days out. Great location to visit the terrific places in this lovely part of the country.
Guest from Wymondham stayed for 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay. Superb location for visiting range of beaches, Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Tressilick. Cottage is well resourced for couple or small family. Would definitely recommend!
Guest from Sandy stayed for 7 nights.
To visit gardens you need a base that is central,convenient and relaxing. Little thatch is all of these plus a garden, a walk to shop and a walk to pub restaurant. A high bath shower and downstairs bathroom are nit for the too infirm however.
Guest from Beckenham stayed for 7 nights.
We absolutely loved our stay in Little Thatch cottage. The cottage was lovely in every way, had everything we needed with our one-year-old, and a beautiful garden that we enjoyed immensely. We used it as a base for day trips out, and managed to see loads of Cornwall. The pizza and fish and chip vans that come to the village were a treat too! A few people had written in the visitors' book that there was a 'cat smell' in the cottage. Unfortunately we did notice a faint smell in the living room, but it didn't bother us. It just might be worth washing the heavy curtain by the door and/or the rug...? It certainly did not detract from our wonderful stay, and I would definitely recommend the cottage to friends.

My husband and I were so extremely pleased with our holiday at Little Thatch. It is such a beautifully quaint, historic, classically Cornish little cottage, but so nicely updated with all modern convenience (dishwasher, fridge, and washing machine are all cleverly concealed behind faux-cupboard doors, so don't be deceived by the photos into thinking they're not there!). When we arrived, the table was set for tea (complete with cake!), and from that moment on, the thoughtful touches continued. One of our favourite things about the cottage was the beautiful conservatory overlooking the back garden: it was such a relaxing place to enjoy a meal, or to read, or just to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The location is also perfect: rural enough to feel that you're right in the heart of the beautiful Cornish countryside, but close enough to the bigger centres to not be too difficult to get to, even without a car (as we were). In fact, the bus stops literally right outside the door! It only runs once every hour or so (less frequently on Sundays), and the last bus back from Truro leaves around 7pm, so a bit of advance planning is required if you're going out for a day trip; but it is very convenient both for trips into Truro and further down the Roseland peninsula. (On that note, if you plan on getting about by bus, a 7-day pass with First Kernow is well worth it, and allows you travel all over the county.) There are so many opportunities nearby for beautiful country rambles, and the ever-thoughtful owners have even left some very good (topographic) walking maps of the area for visitors' use. The only negative thing I can think to say is, that very exceptionally tall persons might think twice before booking: as with most very old homes, ceiling beams are low (in places lower than 6'), and doorway lintels even lower (but once again, the forethought of the owners comes to play: the most problematically low doorway, into the kitchen, is cleverly fitted with a cushion that spared us both many times from serious injury!). Our expectations on arrival, based on photos and reviews, were high; but I can confidently say that every one of them was met or surpassed.
Guest from Chudleigh stayed for 3 nights.
Little Thatch is a comfortable, well appointed property in the middle of the Roseland Peninsula. From Tregony you can visit all the local tourist attractions, without the hassle of finding parking spaces or being overwhelmed by the crowds. The property has a pleasant garden and conservatory, ideal for those that just want a few days of peace and quiet. An additional benefit for older visitors is that the bus to Truro and St Mawes stops at the Square, outside the house.
Guest from Nottingham stayed for 7 nights.
Absolutely wonderful little cottage ! Very clean, lovely little village with a great local pub with excellent food ! My only gripe is the shower needs replacing as it has a very poor flow ! The garden is lovely and the cottage is well equipped and quaint ! Highly recommended!!!
Guest from Bolton stayed for 7 nights.
Had a lovely time we have been in a few cottages this has gone into our top 10 list, location was excellent for our holiday was able to do all we had planned
Guest from Liverpool stayed for 7 nights.
On arriving at Little Thatch it was clear to see how welcoming the place was. Each room was spotlessly clean and was maintained to a high standard. A lemon drizzle cake had been left for us, which was a lovely touch. The only downside was the washing line hung across a bush and there wasn't a pair of scissors in the property. Overall though, we had a fabulous week and would definitely stay there again.
Guest from Hilton stayed for 6 nights.
Excellent cottage and ideal for exploring Rosalind Peninsula. The cottage is attractive externally and at a great location within the village with the local pub a few minutes walk away; good beer, good company and good food. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and is ideal for two or three people with a good sized lounge, kitchen, bathroom and conservatory. The garden is private and has some good garden furniture to sit and enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. We were greeted with a strange smell in the lounge area which resembled tom cat spray. The visitors book records the same smell in August 2014 and whilst efforts to keep the ginger tom away have been made the smell persists and could really do with being sorted. That said we would come back but would hope the owner has sorted out the source of the smell.
Guest from Reichenburg stayed for 7 nights.
Little Thatch is a lovely, cosy cottage where we felt very much at home. Surprisingly spacious downstairs and very nice kitchen. On street parking, downstairs bathroom and steepish stairs not a problem. On arrival, table prettily laid with a delicious welcoming cake. Very good choice of DVDs and books had we had the time! Unfortunately weather not warm enough to enjoy the pretty garden. Tregony is ideal for the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trebah Gardens and Lanhydrock (amazing late Victorian country house, a 'must' for Downton Abbey fans!). All places well worth spending a lot of time at to fully appreciate! Coastal walks from St Mawes a real treat and not far from the north coast either. We hope to return one day!
Guest from Haslau An Der Donau stayed for 7 nights.
Nice cottage with cosy conservatory and garden. Only the steep stairs to the bedrooms can make problems for elder people. The distance to the store and the Pub is very short.
Guest from Loanhead stayed for 7 nights.
lovely character cottage giving excellent access to the Roseland Peninsula, Eden Project and gardens at Heligan with excellent road links for further afield
Guest from Portsmouth stayed for 4 nights.
A lovely little cottage with a delightful garden . Lovely to sit in the conservatory and watch the birds. Well equipped , comfortable and ideally located to explore Cornwall.
Guest from Derbyshire stayed for 7 nights.
My 80y-old mum and I had a great week based in Little Thatch. The standard of accommodation far exceeded our expections and we were very comfortable, finding everything that we needed. Although there is no allocated parking, we did not find this to be a problem, each day returning from our ventures to find a space nearby. We enjoyed relaxing in the conservatory, but found it a little cool first thing in the morning and so usually had breakfast in the dining area! We did find that we needed to empty the de-humidifier daily, probably because we like our showers!! One evening, we borrowed a video - Ladies in Lavender. It's cornish setting providing the perfect subject for our cornish holiday! Thank you for everything.
Guest from Schoenbrunn stayed for 7 nights.
Relax and feel free in this beautiful house. The comfort of this house is on a higher level, nothing is missing. WLAN helps international people to be reachable.
Guest from Swindon stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage was provided with everything one would need and was very comfortable. The only issue we had was with the smell which I'm pretty sure was from a visiting tom cat. This had also been noted in the visitors' book by someone else. Parking was an issue a couple of times but we eventually found somewhere further up the main street to park overnight. Little Thatch is in a place which is very convenient for exploring the area and I think my daughter would like to use it again in the future.
Guest from Edinburgh stayed for 14 nights.
Guest from Settle stayed for 7 nights.
We enjoyed our week in Little Thatch very much. The cottage has a lot of character and atmosphere but also it is very comfortable and we had everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed being able to spend a lot of time outside in the garden and on the decking. The conservatory was a very good addition, too, on days when it was too wet or cool to sit outside. Some people might find the stairs somewhat steep and you have to remember it is a long way back to bathroom once you are upstairs! Before we arrived we were slightly anxious about the parking but in fact we had no problem finding a space on the road outside 6 out of 7 nights. Tregony is well placed as a base to explore the surrounding countryside in all directions and also it is not far from the coast. Overall, we would recommend Little Thatch as one of the best cottages we have rented (and we have been in a lot over the years!)
Guest from Eckington stayed for 7 nights.
Little Thatch is a really nice little cottage. All we could wish for. Good centre for the Roseland Peninsula. Nice conservatory and nice garden but not much sun in the evening. For a couple it was fine - probably ok also for a couple and a child. Not sure how it would be for three adults. The bathroom is on the ground floor. A problem if you need the toilet during the night! Technology good - lots of CDs, DVD etc and old fashioned games. Wifi worked fine - this is increasingly important. We have got to the stage were we will not book a cottage without it. Well equipped kitchen but lacked some basic things such as a frying pan to cook salmon etc. Nicely fitted kitchen though. We did not like leaving our car on the road. Some nights ended up parking quite a way distant. There was always parking but near Little Thatch seemed liked the locals grabbed all the spots. On the last night our car was damaged and had a scrape on the rear offside wing. Will probably cost around £200 to repair. We normally never book a cottage without off road parking. This is an issue that needs dealing with. It appears that the cottage had parking off-road in the past judging by the white line at the road adjacent to the front garden. Would not book again without off-road parking..
Guest from Storrington stayed for 7 nights.
Beautifully equipped and presented with every facility and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay . However we cannot recommend it for the elderly or people with physical disabilities because of the layout I.e the bedroom a long way via steep stairs to the bathroom. There is also a deep step in the bathroom which I had the misfortune to fall down in the night.
Guest from Langton Green stayed for 7 nights.
Very cosy neat little cottage. provided everything we needed for a weeks stay in Cornwall. Clean tidy and well appointed with good quality fixtures and fittings. Would re book again
Guest from Cannock stayed for 7 nights.
A lovely weeks holiday in a gorgeous little cottage. Cottage exactly as pictured and described on website, no disappointments whatsoever. The table label laid for afternoon tea complete with a delicious lemon drizzle cake was a lovely surprise upon our arrival at the property. One minor comment, the on road parking could be a bit of a nuisance at times.
Guest from Worcester Park stayed for 7 nights.
Little Thatch is a very nice cottage set in the local square off the main road. The property was very clean and had all that you needed for a cottage holiday. The garden was very nice and very quite.
Guest from Harrogate stayed for 7 nights.
As stated above the cottage has been decorated to a very high standard. We found the notes left by the owners most descriptive and helpful. The cottage is situated in a lovely location and handy for many parts of Cornwall. We hope to be able to re-visit this area again next year staying in this property if possible Many Thanks Bill Hardy
