The Old Dairy is a traditional and charming Cornish cottage with three bedrooms set in the small hamlet of Tregiffian above Gwenver beach.

The cottage is well equipped with all of the modern amenities and is a lovely home from home with original wood panelled walls upstairs and a great wood burner in the living room. Enjoy cosy evenings in front of the fire after a day spent walking the beautiful coast paths right on your doorstep.

The local area also has a lot to offer with Lands End, the Minack Theatre and Gwenver beach, which is dog friendly year-round, all being within walking distance. Your four-legged friend will be in their element if you choose to bring them along.

You can park right outside the property and enjoy barbeques on the small patio that’s perfect for afternoon and evening al fresco dining or sundowners.

Pull back the bedroom curtains and gaze out over the fields towards the sea while you plan the day’s activities from this characterful Cornish cottage. The Old Dairy is honest and loving, perfect for a family holiday full of coastal adventures. 


Tregiffian Veor is a small hamlet of converted farm buildings and cottages set high above Gwenver. 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 a good local pub. Further afield it's an easy drive to Penzance, Mousehole and St Ives which are all worth a visit.


Downstairs there's a generous living room with the all-important wood burner to take the chill from a cooler evening and make a winter stay a joy.


The kitchen dining room is in the newer part of the cottage and offers all you need to cook great dinners the family will enjoy. Mark, the owner, often cooks a casserole on the wood burning stove.


The three bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom with a super king size bed and sea views out towards the Scilly Isles while the double and twin bedrooms look over the countryside.


The family bathroom has a shower over the bath.


The Old Dairy has a small patio with a barbecue that's perfect for afternoon and evening al fresco dining and sundowners.

“The Old Dairy met and exceeded all our expectations; the beds were so comfy and the place immaculate. Outstanding views and everything we might have needed to hand, including those rather lovely Fairings biscuits. We can’t wait to come back!”

"We absolutely loved our stay in this cute cozy cottage, our days were spent walking our 2 dogs along the many breathtaking beautiful coastal paths and our evenings in front of the fire. The cottage boasts all the modern amenities and well equipped for all our needs.This place really felt like a home from home we will definitely be staying again"

Stewart R. - December 2018

"Fabulous spacious cottage set in beautiful scenery. The cottage was clean, homely and well equipped. Gwynver beach is a short, but steep walk from the cottage. you’re rewarded with a stunning view, fewer people and great waves. The local area has lots to offer too, a walk to Lands End, Minnack Theatre, St Michaels Mount, Sculpture Garden and the pretty village of Mousehole to name but a few. We shall definitely return."
