We have stayed at this location on several occasions and enjoyed each time.

A beautifully situated and well equipped spacious apartment. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit the area. Peaceful and perfect. Thank you

Fabulous cottage in an iconic location.

The history of the estate is very interesting. The family can trace their lineage back to the 12th century. Our host popped in to give us all the essential information and we felt very welcome. A lovely welcome tray provided delicious locally ground coffee and a box of Cornish Shortbread biscuits. A further special touch was two vases of fresh flowers - one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom. I really appreciated this. Thank you Little Trefusis!

A fabulous place to stay and explore.

A charming and cosy cottage steeped in Trefusis family history, displaying some fantastic original Tudor features. Tastefully decorated with all the home comforts you could wish for, a short (10 mins tops) walk from Flushing and the beach through a beautiful ancient wooded valley. Imagine the secret garden meets the famous 5! Lovely and interesting owners are nearby and happy to help, and you are only a few minutes drive (or ferry/boat trip) from one of my favourite pirate-esque spots the Pandora Inn, and the boutique shopping experience of Falmouth. I was awoken in the mornings by the jenny wren sitting in the rose bushes outside the bedroom windows. A truly magical spot.

A delightful cottage set in gorgeous grounds. The cottage had everything you could ask for plus quite a large garden well equipped with all summer accessories plus a BBQ. When staying in this area of Cornwall again I would definitely look forward to staying in this lovely cottage again. Marina and John...West Sussex.

A unique and delightful cottage, just off the beaten track but near to Flushing, Mylor and Falmouth.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Trefusis. Spacious, well equipped and tranquil with large gardens to roam, although not remote - Falmouth, Flushing and Mylor all easily accessible, even on foot. A welcome place to come back to after days out exploring.

Lovely accommodation in a fantastic location. We loved the woodland walk down to the little cove, the pretty village, nearby hilltop playground, excellent pub and easy access to loads of great spots .

The owners were very helpful and the house had everything we needed for a great holiday.

Strongly recommend, with only slight caveat that the walk down to the beach is rough terrain and a hill on the way back so not suitable for everyone.

Fabulous location and grounds. Welcoming and relaxed environment. Easy access to ferries. Wonderful walks.

A wonderful place on an historic estate.

Owner helpful. Location ideal for walks, cycling and catching ferries to other coastal areas in this part of Cornwall. Very quiet position with nice grounds to enjoy.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location with some very enjoyable walks in the surrounding area, which made it a very relaxing and stress free holiday.

A very well equipped cottage in a beautiful spot. I hope to come again.

We loved this pretty cottage and the freedom to roam the beautiful green estate down to the little beach. Such space and away from the crowds even during August. We loved having an aga and the comfortable beds. It was great that there were games and books for rainy days. The literature in the cottage was appropriate for the area and the nature books were lots of fun to look at with the children naming plants, sea shells and so on. Our host was thoughtful and quick to reply when we had a question. We enjoyed this stay tremendously and will be back one day.

Such a beautiful and well proportioned cottage with everything you could hope for supplied inside. Peaceful, quiet and well located.

Little Trefusis was a wonderful retreat for our family holiday. The lovely, peaceful setting and the warm and cozy cottage meant or stay was relaxing and very comfortable. We especially appreciated the things provided for our toddler - cot, highchair, even a bath towel! And all the games and toys were brilliant to keep the little one entertained on rainy days. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return one day!

Thanks for reviewing Little Trefusis. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed such a wonderfully relaxing stay overall and it sounds as though your little one was also extremely well catered for - a blessing during this interesting weather we've been having! We really hope to see you again soon. Bryony, Customer Support

A wonderful cottage with plenty of character. Warm, comfortable and cosy, we couldn’t have asked for more. Loved the view, the Aga, and the hosts. Would love to stay again.

a very comfortable , cosy cottage in a stunning hideaway location . the owners very friendly but not intrusive

The electrically powered AGA was a delightful feature particularly as we stayed in the Autumn. Possibly the TV could be renewed at some point or certainly the remote control where the on /off button was rather temperamental despite the owners replacing the batteries. However, that was a very minor issue and the overriding impression was of a delightful cottage, beautifully equipped a decorated in great style. The location and grounds were also superb, we would certainly return.

Thanks so much for reviewing Little Trefusis - it's great to hear you had a lovely holiday overall. We're sorry that the TV was a little temperamental and we'll certainly forward this on for the owners' attention. Bryony, Customer Support

Excellent cottage, beautifully done. Very clean, well kitted out. Welcoming hosts, we would happily return.

Super cottage in a peaceful location, welcoming hosts and a lovely garden to walk through. A beautiful place to retreat to after sightseeing and activities in the Falmouth area. Well equipped and lots of books to while away a relaxing afternoon!

lovely cottage, so well equipped, great being able to walk through the grounds.

A gem of a place. Welcome pack and flowers were a much appreciated touch. Great location with clear directions. Fully equipped, we wanted for nothing. Little Trefussis exceeded our expectations. A wonderful place to stay. We chose well.

A beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. Warm and comfortable.

Lovely setting. Comfortable and warm accommodation. Kitchen exceptionally well equipped. Fresh flowers really appreciated. Really enjoyed our stay.

A cosy, comfortable cottage set away in beautiful gardens and woods. With a path from the property of just a few hundred yards walk direct to the sea and coastal path, it provided the perfect holiday home. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Trefusis.

A lovely, peaceful, secure estate setting for a holiday let in a converted annexe of a large family house. Aga provides warmth day and night and is easy to use and really helpful in drying children's clothes quickly! Private garden and use of the grounds really add to the experience of the property as does the walk down through private woodland into Flushing. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent location on a large private estate. The owners have a hands-on approach which makes a real difference an all of our requirements had bene anticipated before we arrived.

Lovely stay at little trefusis, garden was lovely, bed and sofas very comfortable, a great trip with our baby for one of his first holidays. We had nice meals out in Flushing and Falmouth and enjoyed trips to nearby gardens. Thank you.

A lovely child-friendly cottage in a great setting. Perfect location for easy day trips around Falmouth with little ones.

We had a wonderful time & plan on booking again if available.

I will suggest this cottage to friends and family

Very well equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished. AGA brilliant.

A wonderful holiday in a delightful property that had everything we needed for our week's stay. Our 3 year old loved the grounds (cows in adjoining fields and the woodland walk to the beach being his highlights) and keeps asking when we can go back. The owners were lovely and introduced themselves on our first day while we were playing in the garden, they were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. It was an ideal base to relax as a family but also to explore Cornwall by foot or car. Would not hesitate in recommending or booking again for ourselves.

Little Trefusis is a cosy cottage in beautiful grounds and in a great location to visit the local area. The owners are very welcoming and we enjoyed the walk through the wood to the beach immensely. We had a really lovely holiday in Flushing. Thank you.

A characterful and warm cottage with plenty of space in a gorgeous location. The Aga makes it perfect for winter, whilst the door into your own garden makes it perfect for summer. Lovely owners who respect your privacy.

A very special place indeed! Flushing ws charming and the waterside pubs were great for dinner. Very child friendly place to stay.

Really peaceful and cosy property

Have been quite a number of times now and LT is always a delight. Even though there is a housekeeper to check that all is well, the owners also make sure everything is OK for us but they are not over-bearing in any way, leaving us to enjoy our cottage and garden and the wider estate without us feeling in any way overlooked or constrained. The setting of this cottage provides a very relaxing environment, quiet and tranquil; it's a beautiful setting.

The facilities in the cottage are excellent and the Aga is a real asset as it ensures that it is always cosy when we return home and also great to cook on. It's worth noting as well that the owners take on board comments and ensure that improvements are made.

It is a perfect bolthole for those of us who have to work in a city!

A cosy and welcoming home from home. Little Trefusis is well equipped and comfortable. The walk through the woods to the beach was delightful.

We would very much recommend a stay at Little Trefusis. The cottage is charming and the surrounding estate is beautiful and peaceful. The owners are very friendly without being intrusive and the cottage is kept to a very high standard. There are many scenic walks around the coastal path and Flushing and its little beach is just a 10 minute walk away through the estate. The port town of Falmouth is lively and interesting and the whole area is populated by good pubs and restaurants.

Very comfortable. Great location with a lot of flair. Loved cooking with the AGA:-)
