Gillan cottage is a snug and cosy cottage located in the hamlet of Tregowris on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. It comfortably sleeps four, with two bedrooms, one double and one twin. Gillan is one of a small complex of cottages known as Tregowris Court, originally converted from old farm buildings.

The cottage is set back from the road and has its own small garden and parking space.
The cottage has a fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, electric cooker, microwave, TV/video with freeview box and midi hi-fi system.

Gillan's secluded location is perfect for those seeking rural tranquility, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Gillan's location on the Lizard is ideal for anyone interested in exploring Cornwall's coastal scenery.

There are many places to visit on the Lizard peninsula. There are sandy beaches at Coverack, Kennack Sands and Poldhu Cove and dramatic cliffs at Kynance Cove and the UK mainland's most southerly point : Lizard Point.

Goonhilly Downs is an extensive area of moor and gorseland, home to Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station. The Lizard Peninsula is defined by the beautiful Helford River, only three miles from Tregowris, and home to Frenchman's Creek. The rugged coastline with its footpath provides wonderful walking opportunities, with the Lizard peninsula criss-crossed with public footpaths.

Looking further afield, the historic market town of Helston has a good range of shops, banks and supermarkets, as well as a fascinating museum and the Coronation Boating Lake. It is also the location of the famous Furry Dance in early May.
The Flambards Experience, on the outskirts of Helston, is ideal for families.

Poldark Mine, a few miles from Helston, is a world heritage site which provides the opportunity to venture underground and experience Cornwall's mining history.

There are a number of National Trust properties to be discovered in the west of Cornwall, with St Michael's Mount, accessed from the pretty village of Marazion, only some 20 miles away. The area around the Lizard is also noted for it's gardens, including Trebah and Glendurgan gardens near Falmouth, which overlook the Helford Estuary.
