About Tippett's

A converted former farmhouse with slate floors near the unspoilt coast of Polruan.

Tippett’s is located in a traditional slate-hung farm building that was once the main farmhouse, but now houses two holiday cottages. Tippet’s retains many original features including slate floors and exposed beams. 

Head out for a walk along the unspoilt coast between Polruan and Polperro. You could discover the sandy beaches of Lantic Bay and Lansallos Cove or the stunning seascapes upon Pencarrow Head on your hikes. You’ll find lots of information about walking trails in the cottage, all prepared with the specialist knowledge of our rangers. 

Take a short drive to Lanhydrock, a stunning Victorian country house, garden and wooded estate, which is also in out care. The estate even boasts 10km of family-friendly off-road cycle tracks.

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.
