The property is set in the most wonderful setting. Very safe and peaceful, (apart from the owls!)
The only thing that lets it down is the comfort of the two sofas and the chair. They are very low and not at all comfortable. Also the toilet seat in the bathroom kept going of to one side! It's a real shame because everything else is lovely. I would still recomened the property as it is such a lovely house.
One more thing is that there are feather cushions and duvets and it did effect my Asthma a little.
I would have most definately given 5 stars if it wasn't for the things I have written.

Anyone looking for an extremely quiet and away from it all location, as we were, this is the place to book! Positioned in a small valley, approached down a track off of the lane, the first thing you come across is the beautiful old mill pond. Having the freedom to wander outside of the cottage was very nice. Philippa, the owner, made us extremely welcome and living in the large Manor House next door was available should we have any issues. Charlie, the housekeeper was also very helpful and left the cottage very clean and tidy. Our 2 dogs loved the area and the garden was dog proof, another point that from visits to other cottages has not always been the case. The cottage is very homely and comfortable, including the bed! An important point to ensure a good nights sleep after a day out in the Cornish fresh air. Upon arrival, to find a fully equipped kitchen including dish washer tablets, washing up liquid, soap, kitchen towel etc which from our experience from staying at many other properties is not usually the case. Also to have an adequate supply of toilet rolls we have not come across this before. These little extras were appreciated, however the nicest surprise was the cream tea including clotted cream and yes tea bags and milk were supplied! It’s touches like these that do not cost a fortune that simply make you feel welcome and after a long journey, that are appreciated so much more, thank you Philippa and Charlie.

The cottage was fantastic and in a beautiful peaceful location , perfect for exploring the North Coast and surrounding areas .
The cottage itself was clean well equipped and the cream tea on arrival was a nice treat. Phillips the owner came over to say hello and let us know she was around if needed.
I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would stay here again.
Mrs de Pulford July 2021
We had the most wonderful stay here- would highly recommend. Just as in the description, lovely garden, v comfortable beds, beautifully furnished. A home from home in a beautiful location.
Mrs Kemp July 2021
Beautiful cottage, in a beautiful location.
Miss Jackson June 2021
Lovely surroundings and beautiful from the outside with a lovely garden and BBQ area. Unfortunately the interior didn’t live up to expectations. There was paint peeling off the walls and lots of scuff marks. The living/dining area had mismatching furniture and quite smelly and unclean sofa, rug and cushions which meant we didn’t feel comfortable spending time in there. I understand the property is dog friendly but it shouldn’t be an excuse for not keeping the furniture clean. The bed we stayed in also had a stained headboard which was off putting. Overall, we felt it was a lot of money for somewhere which could be a lovely property but unfortunately was lacking care and attention on its interior that is needed in order to make it a nice and comfortable place to stay.

Spent more time in the garden and grounds this time as the dogs really loved the walks and we liked the seclusion.
Mrs Clark April 2021
Idyllic location. Peaceful and beautiful yet just 10-15 mins away from Port Isaac, Rock etc. Very well equipped and comfortable cottage. Beautiful kitchen with granite work surfaces & Everhot cooker. Most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in a holiday cottage. Waking up to birdsong only a total delight! Lovely linens. Welcoming owner. Just perfect. Hope to visit again very soon!
Mr Morrison July 2020
Such a lovely place!
Mrs Greenwood July 2020
A stunning cottage in a magical setting.
Mrs Foster July 2020
We had a very enjoyable stay at Trewane Cottage. A very well equipped cottage in an extremely peaceful area. The garden is fully enclosed and a great place to spot wildlife. The cottage is close to local attractions and close to our favourite beach at |Trebarwith Strand. We would love return.
Mr Baker October 2019
Beautiful setting and location to explore North Cornwall
Mr Hutchison July 2019
A comfortable cottage with good decor and well maintained.
If you have younger kids be aware the garden is not massive so the opportuity to run/play is not there.
Also the cottage is quite secluded and found down a bumpy lane about 300 yards long, with no real view of surrounding countryside. So if you want expansive views this may not be for you

Thanks for reviewing Trewane Cottage and it's great to hear you had a lovely holiday overall. The cottage is accessed down a country lane and looks out over a lovely stream-fed millpool and a beautiful south-facing garden as pictured on our website - such a tranquil scene. We do have many properties that offer large expansive gardens, many with countryside or seas views so please don't hesitate to get in touch if we can assist with any future bookings.

Miss Greenwood June 2019
Trewane Cottage is absolutely beautiful. It’s in a stunning quiet location and had everything we could need. It was perfect for our dog due to the enclosed garden. Would definitely return!
Mrs Reinhartz May 2019
Awesome property. We loved the Everhot in the kitchen and the fireplace in the living room.
Mr Fitzgerald May 2019
Beautiful place, very clean and spacious, quite and secluded, warm welcome on arrival and quick response to slight issue we had with bath tap. Well recommended
Mrs Gell October 2018
We would heartily recommend a stay at Trewane Cottage. It is set in the grounds of an ancient manor and farm, secluded and peaceful, and has everything needed for a restful stay. For people who enjoy cooking, the 'Everhot' stove is a joy - once you get used to slightly longer & hotter timings required - the recipe book is very helpful. There are beaches, farm shops and the best pasty shop for miles (Aunt Avices at St. Kew Highway) all within a short drive. We wouldn't hesitate to book Trewane again - it was a really good find. Thank you.
Mr Hull-Brown September 2018

Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. Peaceful and relaxing. Garden is properly enclosed and a great size for kids and dogs. Great all round property and close to so many beautiful beaches and exciting activities for the kids.
Dr Baxter June 2017
We have been staying in the Rock area two to three times a year for over twenty years. Trewane Cottage is far and away the finest we have ever booked. Our thanks to all involved.

Mrs Samuel May 2017
Home from home. Lovely relaxing location and really comfortable accommodation.
Mrs Fry December 2016
Well furnished and spotlessly clean cottage. We especially liked the welcoming cake and bottle of fizz to celebrate new year, which was a lovely thought. The setting was beautiful and it was so peaceful.
Ms Dulay April 2016
Beautiful cottage and location. Everything you would want really : lovely equipped kitchen, open fire , downstairs shower room and utility, good bedding and towels , great garden, the list goes on! Would like to return in the summer so we can make use of the garden. Wonderful night skies too!
Mrs Hornbuckle October 2015
Lovely,spacious detached cottage. Well maintained. Nice, well-equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds and good quality bedding and towels. Pretty garden. Accessed through gates down a narrow track onto a private estate with the beautiful old manor house next door. Several other buildings dotted about but most hidden behind lots of trees. There is a mill pond and an orchard across the track from the house. Very peaceful. Feels quite isolated but still in good position from which to visit all of N. Cornwall.
We enjoyed our cliff-top walks between Polzeath and Tintagel. North Cornwall is lovely with its spectacular craggy coast, pretty villages and beautiful beaches. A few heart-stopping moments along the narrow roads with the high hedges - but a small price to pay to reach your destination.
A long drive down from the N. West, but well worth it.
Mrs Ullrich August 2015
We liked everything. We loved the beautiful house, the quietness, the view from any of its windows, and the surroundings. Well-tended garden with mature trees and pond. A lovely place to both relax and discover the numerous places you should not miss to see in Cornwall. Although it took a while to get there from Germany we would do it again and again..
Mrs Britten August 2015
You could make more of it's beautiful setting in your advert.
