Neutral shades of grey, blue and off white make Little Tolver a calming retreat away from the bright lights of the big city. Enjoy the best of both worlds hidden deep in the countryside but only a short drive from the coast. With magnificent views across open countryside to St Michael's Mount and the ever popular Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens sat right on your doorstep, all you need to decide is where to venture first?

A spacious and bright sitting room with roaring wood burner and oak floors intermingled with original granite from the farmhouse it once was. Snuggle up on the sofa and unwind with a book, partake in a board game or kick back with a DVD - there's plenty to do in the evening in this luxury homestay.


The large kitchen/diner is perfect for a family gathering or meal with friends and is well equipped. Or, if you'd rather leave the cooking to someone else on holiday why not book Benedict Quinn, our private chef who can prepare a meal in advance, cater for a dinner party or take you on a foraging trip for the very best beach BBQ. Email us for more details. There is a separate utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and a Belfast sink in case you need to wash out the wetsuit!


A gorgeous king size French bed resides in the master bedroom overlooking the garden and yellow fields of daffodils in the spring. For maximum flexibility the clever zip and link beds can be made into a double or twins in the second bedroom.


A family bathroom sits between the two bedrooms upstairs and is home to a freestanding roll top bath beckoning your arrival for a long luxurious soak. You've also got the added benefit of a large modern wet room with slate floor downstairs; the perfect spot to shower off any leftover sand lingering after a day on the beach.


A stable door leads out from the sitting room to the enclosed walled garden with raised back terrace, front lawn and beautiful views across to St Michael's Mount. Surrounded by idyllic country views and fresh Cornish air you'll while away hours in this rural hideaway.


There is plenty of parking at Little Tolver, all private and next to the farmhouse.


Little Tolver is fully WiFi ready, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


A dog is very welcome. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.


"Little Tolver is an absolutely beautiful cottage in an idyllic location...amazing views...fantastic holiday!" - April 2017

"Lots of thoughtful personal touches which made it even more delightful. Wonderful welcome hamper full of Cornish goodies, milk in the fridge - and a bottle of prosecco. So cosy and comfortable. Plenty of space for our dog to enjoy locally, his own paddock and walled garden too. Central heating easy to control and limitless hot water. Thank you for a fantastic few days." - February 2017

"Beautiful cottage in lovely Cornwall." July 2016

"An amazing cottage, a great space with a perfect view of St Michaels Mount." June 2016

"Wonderful place. We loved everything. Welcome pack, the amount of provisions like bin bags, dishwasher tablets, all we had to buy was our food. It didn't feel like a holiday let stripped bare where we had to spend time buying household goods. Coffee machine a lovely touch. Great DVDs and books, nothing too worn. Beautiful book and magazines, games, immaculately clean, that was so impressive. Also not over-cluttered but everything we needed and we were so happy to come back every day to our great cottage." May 2016
