Halliggye cottage (sleeps eight), Trelowarren, Cornwall
From £775-£2,450, incl VAT, self-catering.
The Vyvyan family has been in residence on this historic 1,000-acre estate on The Lizard for nearly 600 years.
The woodlands and grounds of the cottage lead down to the River Helford. In summer, village regattas, fly-fishing for bass, diving for scallops or surfing is the order of the day.
The Cury hounds hunt through the estate during the winter. Farther afield, the Western, with its picturesque Penwith country, and the Four Burrow (“Forbra” for the uninitiated) show good sport. Horses or stabling can be found according to need.
For a team of guns shooting is available locally at Bocconoc and Caerhays.
