About Fortescue

A stone and slate cottage with the kitchen and living room on the first floor, maximising the farmland views.

Once part of Triggabrowne, a traditional Cornish farming settlement, Fortescue is now one of several holiday cottages on the site. Built from local stone and slate, Fortescue is a sturdy dwelling, well-equipped to deal with the brisk winds that rear up from the wild Atlantic. 

After arriving, you’ll be struck by the layout of the cottage. The first floor hosts the sitting room and kitchen, a clever twist allowing you to spend more time enjoying the breath-taking countryside views that surround Fortescue. 

Discover the coast between Polruan and Polperro. We own and conserve most of the land nearby, so while you’re enjoying bracing coastal walks, it’s good to know you’re also contributing to the upkeep of the footpaths you’re walking along.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
