About Byron

Byron is a lovely holiday cottage with lots of space for up to four people to sleep in two bedrooms. It is one of a handful of carefully renovated properties on Higher Menadew Farm where guests can enjoy a 4 & 5 Star Gold quality of accommodation and amenities that include a heated indoor swimming pool, games room, and lots of outdoor space to relax and play. Byron is perfect for families, but also comfortable for couples and friends.

Higher Menadew Farm is in a fantastic location for people who want to experience the full beauty of Cornwall. It is in a quiet rural hamlet near Luxulyan, close to Charlestown just 15 minutes away on the south coast, and less than half an hour from beaches on the north coast. Some of Cornwall's best sights and attractions are all within easy reach including the ever-popular and inspirational Eden Project which is only a 10-minute drive from the cottage and the award winning Lost Gardens of Heligan just 25 minutes away.

Day trips can include sunshine and sightseeing in Mevagissey, Fowey, Charlestown with Tall Ships and Poldark connections, the fabulous vistas and history of Tintagel Castle, and relaxing sheltered south coast beaches including Gorran Haven, Porthpean, Porthluney cove, and Polkerris. You can go surfing in Newquay, dine on fresh seafood in Padstow or browse the independent galleries and shops in St Ives. The South West Coast Path always delivers a spectacular view and being centrally located means you can watch the sunrise over the southern beaches and drive to the north coast to watch it set. The Camel Trail is mainly traffic-free and like Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock, is a favourite choice with cyclists. Bodmin Moor is close by with a dramatic landscape of wild heathland, granite tors, rich woodland and river valleys; super for walking and all best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Visitors have so much choice. Stroll around stately homes and glorious gardens like those at Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Tebah and Glendurgan, explore Cornwall’s mining heritage or castles, and enjoy the many activities including golf, river canoeing or coasteering.

Although it is well-regarded as a popular summer holiday destination, Cornwall has plenty to offer in every season to make it a beautiful place to visit all year round. Byron is entirely private and self-contained and can be booked on its own or with one of the other properties at Higher Menadew Farm to accommodate groups of friends and extended families on holiday together. Please see the owner's website for information about availability and booking.
