Tregiffian Veor is a small, peaceful hamlet of converted farm buildings and cottages next to a small working farm. You are set high above one of West Cornwall's finest beaches, Gwenver and it’s a dramatic area in terms of beauty with some of the most spectacular coastal walks in West Cornwall on your doorstep. Sennen Cove is a short drive away with two great surf schools, beach bar and good local pub. Further afield it's an easy drive to Penzance, Mousehole and St Ives which are all worth a visit.
The living room upstairs exudes stylish comfort and it’s an ideal space for relaxing, watching a movie or gathering together to enjoy a board game. It’s converted from the attic space so watch your head with the characterful low ceiling! There is a three and two seater sofa plus a smart TV (there is no aerial so you can use the smart apps to watch iPlayer or Netflix). Open the Velux windows and relax back on the sumptuous sofas with fresh sea air, or gaze out over the fields and reminisce on the day’s adventures.
