A great break with great weather

The Lizard is where you find the real Cornwall, which isn't surprising as it takes a good hour to get there from most other places in Cornwall. The cottages were excellent and even though the owners, Simon and Alexandra, live next door, you never felt anything other than welcome. Our small dog made herself at home and loved the beaches at Dollar Cove and Kennack Sands. We made good use of the outdoor table tennis table and because it never rained (a first for Cornwall) didn't need to resort to the well equipped play room in the barn. John Braggins

An beautiful hidden gem at Lizard

What a wonderful week we spent in Simon and AlexandraA?s cottages in the beginning of April! We went with our three kids (2, 6 and 8) and our friends with same size family. The location on the isolated Lizzard peninsula was exactly what we needed: off the beaten track, quite isolated so safe from the cars and traffic, so the kids could be be quite independent, beautiful surroundings and views, very peaceful. You (and the kids) can easily spend few days without even leaving the grounds as there is so much to explore and enjoy: each of the cottages has its own garden, there is a small hill if you want even better views, there is an orchard where you can have a picnic, there are donkeys you can befriend, there is a wild patch of woodland with a small stream where kids can build a den, play around the stream, no to mention fully equipped playroom in a separate building. Despite having 6 kids with us we could still enjoy a quiet glass of bubbly in those peaceful surroundings. The whole place feels really idyllic without being manicured. All the attractions of the Lizzard are within a short drive. The cottages are really charming, fully equipped, perfectly clean plus we had lovely local products waiting for us upon arrival. Simon and Alexandra are wonderful hosts and very helpful with their knowledge of the area. We enjoyed our stay very much, kids keep talking about walking in wellies up the stream and the donkeys - thank you so much Simon and Alexandra, we would love to be back.

Amazing family holiday

The cottage and location was absolutely amazing. We were a large family with lots of kids who loved every day. The cottage and the gardens/fields provided so much for the kids to do. Simon (owner) was great. He spent time to show us around and tell us about the area. The kids also helped Simon look after the donkeys and chickens. Great stay and looking forward to booking it again for next year.

A little piece of heaven

It is rare to find a location, property and host who can offer such a tranquil holiday. Higher Triggeden cottages are very attractively presented in a beautiful location. The decor is tasteful and furnishings are very comfortable. Our children had a true sense of freedom within a safe setting. The animals; three golden retrievers, horses and chickens made our stay magical. Simon our host was utterly charming and affable. I would highly recommend staying at the cottages.
