Little Trefusis is a single-storey cottage close to Flushing, a delightful waterside village with two popular pubs and a harbourside cafe. This charming cottage has an open plan living-room with a warming Aga in the kitchen-area, comfortable sofas, well-stocked bookshelves and doors onto a small enclosed south-facing garden. With young children of their own, the Owners are extremely welcoming to families and happy for children to use their outdoor play equipment and toys, while enthusiastic gardeners have the treat of exploring the beautifully landscaped grounds and a pathway through the private wood which leads to a little beach. A solar panel installation in the orchard and biomass heating system provides much of the Estate's needs, an example of the Owners' commitment towards future sustainability.

Little Trefusis adjoins Trefusis House, an impressive example of Victorian Gothic architecture and home to the Trefusis family since the 12th Century. The house has twice been used to film a German adaptation of one of Rosamund Pilcher's renowned Cornwall-based novels, most recently in 2016. Beautifully updated by the current young Owners, the cottage provides wonderfully comfortable accommodation for both families and those without children. The spacious main bedroom can accommodate a cot, and all necessary baby and toddler equipment is provided on request. The bunk-room is small and cosy, ideal for slightly older children. The enclosed garden is a peaceful spot for lunch or evening drinks, looking out over the grounds and bordered on one side by the Owners' conservatory (they scrupulously respect your privacy and keep facing blinds down). Everyone will relish the tranquility of this tucked away location and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the opportunities for walking in the area, as well as tuition for many forms of water sports. A picturesque walk around the headland links Flushing to Mylor Yacht Harbour, where dinghies, kayaks and canoes can be hired. Lovely Cornish gardens at Glendurgan, Trebah and Trelissick are a delight to explore locally and the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens are a little further afield. Perfect for families, Little Trefusis is also available to couples only at a discounted rate out of the main season.
