  • "This accommodation is in a delightful barn within a working farm."

    We found the barn very comfortable and homely. It is spacious and well equipped. It was lovely to be woken by the cows in the morning and greeted by two labradors for their treat! An added bonus was seeing two barn owls that were roosting in the roof of the barn. The barn is located close to Helston and within easy reach of St Ives, Porthleven, Falmouth, Mullion, Lizard and surrounding areas. We had a fantastic stay here and would not hesitate to book again. A big thank you to the hosts for leaving a cream tea and basic provisions for our arrival.

  • "Superb accommodation."

    We have already said we will go back there. Clean, bright, super quiet and comfortable. It was lovely to hear the owls moving about in the roof at night and the 2 dogs were adorable. Thoroughly recommend Little Tregarrick.

  • "A smart, comfortable and very well equipped cottage, in a great location for exploring the Lizard peninsula by car."

    Introductory scones and cream very welcome. Bus stops within 20 minutes brisk walk. Some minor points: A small sharp knife for peeling apples etc would be useful; a few light bulbs aren't working in the bathroom and kitchen; it would be useful to have a scourer and dishcloth, and even a couple of washing machine tablets, as this would avoid having to buy a whole pack when you only need one item.

  • "Little Tregarrick was a perfect property for our stay."

    The cottage is spacious and comfortable with everything you could need. Located on a working farm, you would think you were in the middle of nowhere yet in 5 minutes you can be in Helston and a 15 minute walk brings you to Sainsburys. We loved waking up to the sound of the calves and the 2 farm dogs and numerous cats were very friendly. We had been looking for somewhere to stay in Cornwall since our previous host gave up letting his property where we had been coming for about 12 years. I think we have found a great replacement in Little Tregarrick, so much so we have already booked for next year. Thanks to Chris and family and hope Margaret recovers quickly from her broken hip. Look forward to meeting her next year.

  • "I really enjoyed my two weeks in Little Tregarrick."

    The property is attached to Tregarrick farm which is a working fam but this in no way affected my stay in Little Tregarrick. The property is very spacious and comfortable and has all mod cons. Being in the countryside, it was wonderfully dark and quiet at night. The property is ideally situated for exploring the Lizard and all of Southwest Cornwall. I have no hesitation in recommending Little Tregarrick to couples looking for a quiet retreat in Southwest Cornwall, and I will definitely consider going back in the future.

  • "Although we enjoy staying at Little Tregarrick there are one or two things which would improve our holiday."

    A teapot is necessary, dishcloths should be provided and hooks behind the bedroom and bathroom doors for dressing gowns. The towels are extremely hard and scratchy and there are no hand towels. We certainly did not like the huge television which has been put on the wall at the foot of the bed. It is very in-your-face and makes it very difficult to use the mirror on the chest of drawers. A simple picture to look at on the bedroom walls would be much better.

  • "The holiday cottage was excellent, everything we expected and more."

    There was a lovely Cornish Tea waiting for us when we arrived and the owners were helpful and friendly. The only disappointment was that Sykes charged us twice for booking 2 weeks. It was a single booking and we were disappointed to be charged 2 booking fees. We've used other companies before who charged a single fee for 2 weeks as a single booking. Less likely to book with Sykes again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and the cottage as much as you did. With regards the booking fee, in the price breakdown it shows that you have only been charged one. We apologise for any confusion. - The Cornish Cottage Holidays Team Property Owner

    The cottage is very close to animals and the flies were very bad in the hot weather. There wasn't a barbecue as listed but luckily we spoke to the owners beforehand and took our own. The manuals for the washer and the microwave were missing which made using the facilities a little challenging. The easy walk to the pub and shops in Helston was a definite attraction.

  • "The general standard of cleanliness in the cottage was not up to a 4 star rated holiday accommodation."

    I have emailed Alice in Customer Relations and attached photos of what we found on our arrival at Little Tregarrick and the following morning. The owner, as it says in your Customer Reviews, is indeed a very warm, friendly, helpful lady, and we agree with the feedback Little Tregarrick is indeed spacious accommodation, and the appliances were all in good working order. But the standard of cleanliness generally has not been maintained. We found clumps of hair on bedroom carpet, many cobwebs above bed and bedside lamps needed a good dust. Crumbs and food on floor in kitchen/dining area. The bathroom sink was not clean, there was scum and hair around one of the taps as well as in basin. There was thick dust on extractor hob in kitchen, on tv stand, glass table and dvd player, etc.etc. We were disappointed to say the least! We were grateful for the butterfly cakes and milk supplied, but would rather have had a clean cottage to welcome us!! Such a shame, because the area is beautiful, so from that point of view would recommend. **Owner Response** We are very sorry for any disappointment,. We have immediately undertaken a deep clean of Little Tregarrick. and will redecorate throughout, starting on Monday 28th January

The property

Little Tregarrick is spacious and comfortable for two, tucked away at the end of a private lane just outside the ancient market town of Helston.

This lovely barn conversion is set over one floor and provides roomy accommodation for couples who wish to be in the countryside but not too far from a town with lots of amenities.

The interior is well thought out and space isn't an issue, there is a lovely large central kitchen dining area which is flanked by the sitting room on one side and the bedroom on the other.

A spacious shower room completes the accommodation.

Outside is a garden area mostly laid to lawn, a barbecue is also available.

The barn is attached to the owners farmhouse and is situated on a working farm, guests may experience the sounds and smells of the countryside and may be greeted by the 2 friendly working farm Labradors which roam at Little Tregarrick.

Guests also have access to the owners gardens which surround the grounds.

The immediate surroundings are rural and green and yet the there is a pub/restaurant less than a mile away that can be reached by footpath across the fields on a summers evening.

The wide sandy beach at Loe Bar, just over two miles away can also be reached by foot through the beautiful National Trust land of the Penrose Estate.

Helston is great for morning coffee and has a few pubs and shops but for waterside eateries we suggest that you head to nearby Porthleven, a pretty fishing port on the south coast.

There are several good options here including the superb fusion restaurant Kota.

Porthleven is also home to several galleries and a weekly harbour market.

Why not take a fishing trip from Porthleven and keep the fish you catch for an evening barbecue.

The property sits at the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula; a beautiful and unspoilt area of Cornwall that escapes the crowds.

Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
