This is a lovely cottage in a great location, very peaceful and quiet, had everything you need for a great holiday. Lovely walks to Carbis Bay and handy for the train to St Ives Would would recommend this place to family and friends.

July 2020

Trenance was the perfect location to explore the west of Cornwall, set in a peaceful valley and still only a 5 mins drive to Carbis Bay beach which is a fantastic sandy beach with stunning views across the Hayle estuary and 10 mins from bustling St Ives. The accommodation was extremely clean and very well presented and the hosts were brilliant making sure we had arrived safely. We felt very at home at Trenance. We would highly recommend this property.

July 2020

We had the most amazing stay at Trenance, the cottage was everything we could’ve wished for and more. The location was amazing and the surroundings absolutely stunning! Would definitely return to stay here.

July 2020

A gorgeous cottage in a fabulous location, so nice to be able to feel safe during COVID. We booked another holiday at the cottage while we were there, we loved it so much!

July 2019

On arrival we were met by the owners of the property who were very welcoming and even made us some cake with a cup of tea. The property was well decorated and looked just beautiful. I have nothing bad to report. From the moment we viewed your website, to booking, to receiving build up emails, to arrival and throughout our holiday we had a great experience. Thank you.

June 2019

Absolutely beautiful cottage in stunning location. By far the best property i’ve stayed @ in Cornwall. Couldn’t ask for more, thank you

May 2019

We love the location of this dog friendly cottage.Able to walk and explore the many footpaths without using the car so dogs were in their element.It suits us and we hope to return again soon.

April 2019

The cottage was well located; peaceful, great views out over the fields, lovely walks to Carbis Bay and St Ives. Barn itself was cosy, bright, and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We walked to St Ives (and got the train back to Carbis Bay), and Mousehole, Marazion and Sennen Cove were all within easy reach by car. The beds were comfy, the place was warm and welcoming and we had everything we needed. It was lovely to have fresh flowers, milk, eggs and lovely homemade cake on arrival too. We would definitely consider staying here again.

November 2018

Quiet, well equipped detached cottage with efficient heating. The cake, eggs and milk left for us were well appreciated.

September 2018

A perfect, cosy hideaway in the countryside just outside St Ives and, therefore, well positioned for exploring the beautiful Cornish coastline. A delightful barn conversion, well equipped and with a lovely garden and outdoor dining area (I wish we'd had the weather to make the most of them!). Well fenced and dog friendly too. The nearby Halsetown Inn has to be recommended - dog friendly and listed as one of the top 10 places to eat in Cornwall. We enjoyed our short break here, despite the dreadful weather!

June 2018

Fantastic cottage perfect for exploring Cornwall’s many sandy beaches. Trenance is a delightful, well equipped, cottage in a quiet location. We stayed for a week in June 2018, with our dog, and had a wonderful time.

July 2017

Great property in a great location close to St Ives and beaches.

July 2017

A really comfortable cottage with great hospitality from the owner. This wasn't just a space to eat and sleep, it had a lot of extras for home comfort, including books, games and beach equipment.

June 2017

Cottage is well equipped, in a quiet location, nicely surrounded by cows, rabbits and neighbour dogs. A lovely owner has welcomed us with flowers, cake, eggs and milk for a good start. We would love to come back.

April 2017

Trenance is quite simply a superb cottage situated in a lovely peaceful spot with just the mooing cows and the crowing cockerel as neighbours, but with the best parts of Cornwall within easy reach. Penzance, Hayle, Carbis bay and the wonderful St Ives are but a handful of minutes away. We loved the cottages warm and comfortable reversed layout, with a feature stain glass window that will amaze you when the sun starts to set.

October 2016

Very nice secluded position of this small converted cottages. Very clean and well equipped. In welcome there are flowers, eggs, milk and Scones. Nice gesture. To the supermarket is 20 min down the hill. Idyllic location. Mobile and mobile internet not in every corner of the house. Kitchen equipped with oven, dishwasher and equipment. Excellent base for nature lovers, travellers with eye to quality. Thanks. Will come again with pleasure.

September 2016

Trenance is beautifully situated on farmland and you have a lovely feeling of secluded tranquility. The closest neighbours are birds and a few cows. If you're lucky, you may encounter a visiting farmer with one of the friendliest dogs in the country. However you are still only five minutes from the newsagent, grocer and post office of Carbis Bay and, best of all, Carbis Bay and Porthkidney beaches, the latter being dog-friendly all year round. Another bonus is that you can dine very well at a different restaurant or pub every night per week, which are all very close AND dog-friendly. Trenance is owned by a lovely couple, who simply want to make your stay as great as possible.

September 2016

Lovely cottage in a great location.

August 2016

One of the best family holidays I've ever had loved every minute.

January 2016

The cottage was a delight, warm, comfortable and very well equipped with an abundance of towels which was greatly appreciated. The owner was kind and friendly, providing milk, eggs and cake to greet us. Lovely location in the quiet countryside but near enough to St Ives to walk in. We had a lovely winter break in this beautiful place.

December 2015

We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this one is without doubt the best in all respects. Thank you to the owners and Classic Cottages. Our holiday was during Christmas and when we arrived the owners had not only decorated the cottage, including a Christmas tree with lights, but had also provided mince pies, clotted cream, heavy cake, milk and eggs.

October 2015

Lovely cottage in superb location. Very well equipped. Welcome pack is the best we have had. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Excellent cottage if you have a dog. The garden is fully enclosed with a good sized lawn. There are good walks in the immediate vicinity.

I am loathe to criticise anything, however, the mattress on the double bed was a little springy for our liking. If this could be changed the cottage would score 12/10 instead of 10/10!

Very quiet even though located on a working farm.

Thanks so much for your comments about Trenance, we're delighted that you enjoyed your time there. It's always difficult to compare your own mattress with one in a holiday property, as we all have our own specific preferences, but it's great that you were comfortable overall - we hope to see you again soon.

Great location, well equipped, living area is smaller than shown on the pics which in good weather won't matter but 4 people sharing the space in winter could be cramped

Trenance was a lovely cottage. It was furnished to a very high standard and the owners made us feel so welcome. We loved our stay and would very highly recommend staying there. It was fantastic.

Superb quiet and private converted barn, ideal for couple plus dog. Easy drive to a different place each day for sightseeing. Almost everywhere is dog friendly and after Oct 1st the beaches are wonderful.

July 2014

The location of this property was excellent. It was very quiet and tucked away but in easy reach of all that we wanted to do.

It was a well developed property with thought having gone into the design. The decor was very tastefully done.

A comfortable, recently renovated property, well equipped. It is in a lovely quiet location, with great walks all around. Nice touches in the welcome pack - home baked cakes, fresh eggs and flowers. No WiFi or some mobile network coverage.

A little Cornish gem! I wish I could keep it a secret...
