Fabulous cottage, really charming features and lovely, welcoming hosts. The cream tea on arrival was a particular lovely treat!

August 2019

A genuinely lovely cottage with plenty of room and very warm - a warmth matched with the lovely welcome by the owners. Little Trebarvah was a perfect base for us to explore the various coastlines and go on long adventures with our dog.

July 2019

We had a lovely stay, the cottage was a great base for exploring North Cornwall with very helpful owners next door It was very well equipped , clean and peaceful .

July 2019

Everything about Little Trebarvah was perfect. The location, the setting, the facilities and especially the warm welcome we received from our friendly hosts. On arrival we even had scones and jam waiting for us which was a lovely touch. The farm has its own sheep and Dexter Cows and views to the distant sea which makes it idyllic in everyway. Another added bonus with this farm is that Martin and Dominique (the cottage owners) sell their own beef which was, without doubt, the best we'd had anywhere in the world. All in all I highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning. If you've got a dog too, as we have, it is ideal. The cottage opens up into 40+ acres of surrounding countryside attached to the farm, so your 4-legged friend is spoilt for choice when he wants to run around. And for us two legged animals, the location couldn't have been better. We explored everywhere from locations in North Cornwall such as Boscastle and Tintagel ... down to the Lizard Peninsula and Lands End ... through to Helford River and up to Falmouth and beyond on the south ... finding some amazing beaches, coves and villages en route. Whilst nearby Heston has absolutely everything you could wish for from supermarkets to pharmacies to pubs (check out the Blue Anchor). But wherever we went, I must say it was always lovely coming back at the end of the day to this little piece of heaven called Little Trebarvah. Just sitting back with a G&T or glass of wine and watching the sun set. ENJOY!

Little Trebarvah is an absolute beautiful gem! It has such a welcoming, calming peacefulness about it that we instantly felt our stress levels evaporate! Beautiful views, perfect location in glorious countryside. We would love to live here and call this home! We have stayed in quite a few holiday cottages over the years and this one is the absolute best ever. Has everything you need for a magical wonderful stay. The owner is very kind and lovely too, which explains the loveliness of Little Trebarvah. Would very highly recommend.

April 2019

Delightful location. Completely peaceful but only a few minutes drive from main road. Best equipped holiday house kitchen I have ever seen. Scones, jam, cream and milk awaiting us. Also beautiful flowers.

September 2018

Little Trebarvah is the perfect cottage. This was our 4th year staying here and we look forward to our 5th. Its the perfect location - quite and secluded, but close enough that we are able to get to all the local places.

September 2018

Little Trebarvah is a gem if what you want is peace and tranquility. Well equipped and comfortable.

August 2018

We had a wonderful holiday at Little Trebarvah. Dominique and Richard were very gracious and welcoming hosts - even their dog played nicely with ours.

We purchased and cooked some of the farms speciality beef and it was delicious.

It is in the middle of nowhere and there are acres of farmland to explore, although the cottage is well placed to visit all of West Cornwall and there are many beautiful dog-friendly beaches and coves relatively nearby.

August 2018

Lovely owners, very helpful and accommodating. Nice rural location with good views, dog friendly. Enjoyed our week staying at Trebarvah, good base in which to explore Cornwall.

August 2018

We had a wonderful family time at Little Trebarvah. The cottage is excellent, in an absolute quiet area, and perfect as a basecamp for a family. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They helped us immediately, when our son had a little accident. Great time! Would always book this again!

October 2017

This was our second time at Little Trebarvah, and we enjoyed it as much as the first. We love the woodburner (although it almost made the room too warm!) The location is brilliant - the weather was a bit foggy and cloudy, so we looked a the weather forecast in the morning and headed for the sunniest part of the penisula - nothing more than 40 mins drive away. It's a great place to relax.

September 2017

Very comfortable cottage in a lovely setting with great views. Very friendly and helpful owners, would definitely go again.

September 2017

We have stayed at Little Trebarvah 3 times now and are already booked for our next holiday here. There is plenty to do locally from walks, horse riding, boat trips and nice eateries. You will not find a warmer welcome anywhere else. Dominique really makes you feel at home on arrival and is very knowledgeable of the area. This truly is a stunning property in a beautiful location.

August 2017

We have stayed in many gites / villas / apartments and holiday cottages over teh years - and I think Little Trebarvah was one of the best fitted out - if not the best

July 2016

We had great three weeks of summer holidays. It is a good place to explore Cornwall. Little Trebarvah is a lovely cottage which had everything you need. It is a peaceful and quiet location. If you sit in the garden you have a nice view in the area. On colder evenings we enjoyed to light the fire place. The owners are very friendly. We had a warm welcome with cream tea.

We had a lovely stay at Little Trebarvah - it exceeded our expectations and is a beautiful place.

August 2015

We spent a wonderful relaxed 2 week break at Little Trebarvah. Its great location allowed us to easily explore the beautiful Lizard peninsula. We'd highly recommend this place and will definitely come back and stay here again

June 2015

My wife and I had a fantastic time here and would definitely recommend the cottage. The countryside is stunning and it's the perfect place to get some peace and quiet if that's what you're after. Feeding the sheep was an added bonus.

The cottage is located a short drive away from Falmouth, which was very convenient for supermarkets etc. The owners are very friendly and were always happy to help. We really enjoyed ourselves and hope to go back soon!

June 2015

A very nice place located at the countryside. Totally calm. Big and sunny garden with a nice view in the area. Warm welcome by houseowners (flowers and cream tea were placed on the table). Better you like driving narrow roads but there is less traffic until you reach the main road.

May 2015

September 2014

Your dog will love it

August 2014

A gem!

June 2014

The cottage is scrupulously clean, well equipped and comfortable and with plenty of room for a couple. The outside area is perfect for enjoying alfresco eating and spending time relaxing away from the busier places around the coast. It has lovely country views. We enjoyed watching the dexter cows and calves and the sheep being sheared. We liked coming back to the comfortable cottage in the evening to spend time here after a busy day. We have had a great holiday at this cottage, it is perfect for exploring the surrounding area and a relaxing and peaceful location to come back to. We will recommend this cottage to our friends and family , a great little find.

September 2013
