Little Trebarvah is a delightful gem with charming ambience. Very comfortable cottage with far-reaching views across tranquil Cornish countryside. Secluded and safe garden for peaceful evenings, or the afternoon cream tea provided. The cottage is light and bright with much character and contemporary twists. Dominique and Richard are delightful, discreet and helpful hosts. Their Dexter beef is second to none. So glad to have brought some home. (Remember to take ice blocks and a cold bag!) I very much look forward to returning.

Little Trebarvah is a lovely cottage. It is very well equipped and spacious. Having the use of a laundry room was welcome. You do need a car but that really isn’t an issue. There are load of walks on your doorstep and lots very locally to do with those with young families, including the Cornish Seal Sanctuary which we visited twice in the week, it’s bigger than you think. The owners are very welcoming and provided a delicious cream tea on our arrival.

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

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.

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 .

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!

A very peaceful place. Good access for Helford, Helston and Falmouth. Very friendly hosts.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

A beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting perfect for exploring this stunning part of Cornwall.

Very dog friendly. Great location and cottage. For nature lovers.

Loved it, would have loved to stay longer and would certainly like to return.

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

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.

We had a delightful time in a lovely cottage, which had everything we might have needed. The host family were extremely hospitable whilst at the same time allowing us to get on with our own thing.

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

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!

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.

We had a great week at little trebarvah: the cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable, and perfectly located for trips and walking.

Your dog will love it

A gem!

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.

The cottage was perfect, the owner was very helpful and the location great for exploring the Lizard peninsula. We would love to go back and would highly recommend.
