Mr Berry June 2019
Trelowen is a first-class, tastefully furnished, fully-equipped property in a quiet location and with stunning unobstructed sea and coastal views, enhanced by the reversed living layout. Highly recommended without reservation!
Miss Hickey May 2019

Miss Callen May 2019
Fantastic holiday property with simply stunning sea views, a hot tub, bbq hut and everything you could ever need inside. The house is beautifully decorated, and the quality of the fit out is clear to see. Lots of lovely touches throughout- if you’re a fan of Jo Downs glassware (as I am), you’ll love this house!. Alona & Martin were thoughtful hosts and certainly went the extra mile for us.
Mrs Farrington April 2019
The perfect setting and cottage for a perfect holiday. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Mrs Parkinson December 2018
We had a lovely stay at Trelowen. Such a gorgeous view- and the cottage is wonderful. Well equipped and plenty of room for my family of six, plus my parents! We had such a nice Christmas holiday. The owners decorated the cottage with lights and a tree and we prepared and enjoyed a Christmas turkey dinner and a fantastic roast lamb dinner (compliments to Cornish Food Box company for their dinner boxes!) Watching the sunset from the hot tub was a special moment for me as well.
Thank you to Alona and her family and to Classic Cottages for a wonderful holiday! We would love to return sometime soon.
Mr Mogg September 2018
If you want quality accommodation with great facilities and spectacular views, this property is up there with the best.
Mrs Sortwell August 2018
Exceptionally well presented and beautifully situated holiday home from home. We will long remember watching the sunset over the Fowey Estuary from the hot tub. Just perfect.
Mrs Graney August 2018
This is a beautiful, well planned and thought out home, with amazing views. It is extremely comfortable and the level of cleanliness was excellent. We had a very warm welcome from the owners who left us a selection of Cornish treats to enjoy. A wonderful experience.
Mrs Smith August 2018
The owners of Trelowen really have everything covered for an amazing stay in Cornwall. Stunning views, immaculately presented house and a personal greeting from them to show us around and advice for local days out. What more can we say? A truly amazing place.
Mr Younghusband June 2018
Bbq hot tub and stunning views did not disappoint. A beautiful house with owners who seem to have thought of everything for your holiday needs
Miss Attard March 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for my 30th Birthday at this very special house - both us adults and children had an outstanding time - the house is spacious, clean, airy, cosy, beautifully decorated, well stocked, the views are breathtaking, you catch different glimpses of the sea out of each window as you walk around, just gorgeous!! The BBQ hut and hot tub was fab!! the walks to and around Lantic Bay are beautiful, although steep! the kids loved the marina aswell. Alona went above and beyond, so friendly and welcoming, the house was decorated with balloons, banners, fresh flowers, cornish treats and a lovely gift. Cannot thank you enough, will definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Cornwall somewhere different, I'm so pleased we chose to stay here.
Mr Ottaway October 2017
Wonderful place in every respect. Go there!
Mrs Chapman October 2017
From the minute we arrived Alona and Martin were so kind and walked us round this beautiful house.We were a family group of 8 having a break before my husband has some treatment and this was the perfect haven.The view of the sea and the daily visit from a group of cows was mesmerising!The standard of cleanliness and provision of equipment was second to none,every single thing had been so well thought out.And the icing on the cake was the hot tub!!Thank you so much Alona and Martin,we loved every minute!
Mrs Huntley September 2017
This holiday home exceeded our expectations. Attention to detail, cleanliness, high quality decoration and furnishings. Lovely welcome pack of Cornish goodies and fresh flowers awaited us. Alona and Martin very welcoming and friendly. Didn't want to leave.
Mrs Wyatt September 2017
As a family of 7 adults we visited Trelowen at the beginning of September. We visit Cornwall every year, but this was out first visit to Polruan. We were met by the owners and received a lovely welcome. Both Polruan and Fowey have retained their Cornish charm and the harbour/surrounding area is breathtaking! The location is excellent as it enables you to easily visit other places of interest in the local area, i.e. Looe, Mevagissy (can be reached by a daily boat), Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligen, Polperro, Charlestown. The accommodation (with sea views) was superb, offering every comfort. We have already strongly recommended this as a holiday option to both friends and relatives.
Ms Parker August 2017
Stylish modern simply beautiful. The owners really had catered for everything you could want.
Mrs Hughes August 2017
Quite possibly the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Perfect for all the family. The hot tub and fire pit were fantastic. Plenty to do locally especially beautiful walks.
Mr Brown July 2017
For anyone wishing to have a very special holiday with family or friends you could not make a better choice...............Trelowen is simply superb.
Mrs Narramore July 2017
Immaculate, luxurious, comfortable and spacious. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The garden is pretty with lots of seating areas. The hot tub is great fun both day and night. The views of the sea are spectacular and Trelowan has been cleverly designed to maximise every opportunity to watch the sea. We were 6 adults (grown up children) and there was lots of space. We so enjoyed the views and facilities at Trelowan that we were happy to have short days out and lazy days in. A wonderful place to stay
Miss Frankson July 2017
What a beautiful cottage in the most stunning surroundings! Whatever the weather you won't be disappointed by your stay in this holiday cottage. Lots of care and attention to detail by the owners makes this a wonderfully cheerful, modern and fantastically well-equipped cottage. Everything about the house is immaculate and the views are breathtaking. A fabulous soak in the hot tub after a day tackling the steep coastal hills was such a pleasure! The loveliest place we've stayed. You must use the BBQ at least once during your visit! It's a real bonus.... Would 100% recommend and would love to return!
Mrs Smith June 2017
A beautifully presented house in a great position with stunning views from every window upstairs and from the lovely garden. One of the best choices we've made regarding holiday houses over many years.
Mrs Moss May 2017
We had an amazing week at Trelowen. Alona gave us a very warm welcome, and showed us how everything worked in the cottage. A lovely assortment of goodies on our arrival, from Cornish cider to cookies and chocolate! The view was outstanding, and it was so lovely to have the views of the sea from the living room and bedrooms. The hot tub was a relaxing experience at the end of each day, and cooking a BBQ in the hut was also a success! Trelowen was ideally situated to visit many places including pretty Fowey, Eden Project and the coastal path on the doorstep! Thank you Alona and family for sharing your beautiful cottage and creating happy memories!
Mrs Cartwright December 2016
Beautiful location with amazing views. The house is stunning, comfortable, cosy & well maintained.
Mrs Lockett December 2016

Mr Desai December 2016
We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Trelowen and couldn’t recommend it enough. The house itself was beautiful – light, modern and very well equipped. The views of the sea (especially at sunrise & sunset) were amazing and we also enjoyed some great winter walks along the coast. Alona was a very attentive host, leaving some goodies for us when we arrived and giving us plenty of recommendations of things to do during our five days at Trelowen. The hot tub and BBQ area were a massive bonus and great to use even in December. We had a perfect stay – thank you so much Alona!
Mrs Wiltshire November 2016
What can we say except for this was the most amazing place to stay! The views are fabulous, the attention to detail is second to none, it was spotless and Alona, our Host was first class! We absolutely loved this house and especially enjoyed cooking some superb steaks on the BBQ in the BBQ Summer house on a very wet and windy evening!
Miss Christy November 2016
Our 4 night stay at Trelowen was absolutely fabulous Alona gave sent us an amazing amount of information as she wasn't able to meet us at the house. You will want for nothing whilst staying here. Every type of kitchen utensil & equipment has been thought of, as well as things you wouldn't have thought of. There is so much space and storage, and plenty of lovely seating areas to take in the incredible 180 views of the sea.
The house is so tastefully & comfortably decorated - 2 master bedrooms, both with very high-end en suites with under floor heating & heated towel rails, plus 2 other bedrooms which were gorgeous with 2 single beds.
Plenty of storage and hanging space, with proper wooden coat hangers!! (not a random assortment of those left by others)
Little touches like this, really set this property apart from others. Huge fluffy towels, as well as robes & slippers for the fab hot tub. We couldn't wait to get back to the house to sit in the hot tub and watch the stunning sunset over the unspoilt Cornish Hills...
Usually when we are away we eat out every night, but here we wanted to enjoy the superb comfort of the house, so only ate out 1 night, at the Luggers Inn at the bottom of the hill. Other nights we made use of the amazing BBQ hut - what a delightful way to enjoy dinner, regardless of the weather.
The local area is lovely & quiet. If you fancy some more life you can get the foot ferry over to Fowey for £2, or take the car and visit the endless list of beautiful little towns.
There are cupboards full of games to entertain little (and big) ones, as well as an incredible assortment of information leaflets and lifestyle magazines
We could have quite happily stayed forever!
Mrs Walsh November 2016
This house is absolutely beautiful. There are too many things to list, but it really was the added extras in this property and of course the location and layout of the house which really stands out from others. It is a perfect base, whatever the weather or time of year with a short walk to the sleepy village of Polruan and with easy access by ferry to Fowey. It is cosy, has beautifully finished decor and you could easily find yourself sitting for hours looking out at the stunning views around. Just fabulous!
Mr Sturgess October 2016
What a wonderful place! We really could not fault it in anyway. The location speaks for itself but the standard and attention to detail is of the highest standards. We would recommend to anyone, we had such a perfect stay.
Mrs Willis October 2016
Trelowen is a stunning property in a beautiful location. Alona the owner is hugely helpful, everything we could have wanted was provided including a very nice welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits, milk, fudge and chocolate. In addition, wood for the wood burner and charcoal for the BBQ was also provided along with firefighters, tools, matches etc. Very thoughtful and demonstrated real attention to detail to give guests a hassle-free holiday. Other thoughtful touches included proper recycling facilities, and provision of recycling bags, a good sized kitchen bin for non-recyclable waste, lots of towels, slippers and robes for the hot tub. As well as being an extremely well designed house, Trelowen has a stunning garden with 180 degree views over the ocean - a perfect place to relax. Beautiful furnishings, lots of space, extremely well equipped, very warm even on chilly evenings. Stunning, well kept garden with great facilities. Amazing hot tub and fabulous BBQ hut.
Mr Smith October 2016
Trelowen is a modern beautiful house set in a great location with fantastic views.( the best views I've ever witnessed while on holiday in England) The decor is very tastefully done and the furnishings are very comfortable. Perfect !!!
Mrs Nolan September 2016
This property is gorgeous. It has everything we could want and more and the attention to detail is amazing. Add to that the beautiful setting and stunning views and it really was the perfect holiday.
Mrs Meaker August 2016
Trelowen is a fabulous cottage and firmly a family favourite.
Mr Atkinson July 2016
I think the property and welcome from the owner actually exceeded our expectations. We were given a lovely detailed introduction to the house and an explanation of how various items worked, including the hot tub. The quality of equipment and furnishings was to a very high standard and this included bedding, towels, hot tub towels and dressing gowns, slippers. Basically everything you could possibly want was thought of and provided. In addition there was a welcome pack of locally produced food, milk and champagne - all unexpected but again of very good quality. I don't know if we will ever go back to Polruan (as we tend to go to different places) but we would definitely recommend this house to friends.
Mr Bate July 2016
Superb 5 star accommodation! Luxurious and spacious, light and airy with spectacular sea views from the house and garden. Our party was 4 adults and 2 teenagers but there was plenty of space. Absolutely loved the hot tub, had to drag the kids out of it sometimes so we could go out! Very enjoyable holiday, Polruan is a bit of a hidden gem, never been before, found it a nice peaceful area and not too far from the main highlights of Cornwall. Thoroughly recommended
Mr Hale June 2016
superb cottage , superb location and superb views
Mrs Lynall May 2016
This is probably the most well equipped, beautifully decorated holiday houses we have stayed in. It has everything you need for a luxurious holiday. The owners made sure that we were happy and comfortable, they even provided lovely touches, like the local produce for our arrival. The view is simply stunning, especially from the hot tub, definitely the best in Polruan.
Mr Marshall May 2016
Superb first holiday for us and our twins. What a treasure of a property, comfortable in rain or shine, and the owner really made us feel looked after.
The location is cracking for beautiful coastal walks, big pub lunches in Polruan, ferry trips across to Fowey, or just watching the sailing competitions from the hot tub or barbecue shed!
Mrs Paterson April 2016

Mrs Whyte March 2016
A wonderful cottage, spectacular views, comfortable, clean and beautiful. The owners are very helpful. We didn't want to leave
Mr Willis March 2016
It was a delight to be welcomed by Alona who took the time to make us feel at home immediately. The interior is so well thought out to maximise the views which are absolutely second to none and to provide such a homely feel in a "holiday home" is really something special.
Massive thank you to Alona for providing such a spectacular property - a real escape from the madness of the usual routine. Only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Have already recommended this cottage to friends and family and am hoping they will invite us to join them.
Mrs Ankers March 2016
Trelowen is a beautifully decorated and furnished cottage with everything so well thought out, we had an amazing stay, so peaceful and relaxing. The provisions in the cottage are excellent and the owner is so helpful. It's in a stunning location with outstanding views. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet village with the pedestrian ferry and coastal walks. Our stay in the cottage was so enjoyable, and the hot tub was the icing on the cake! We can't wait to return.
Mrs Heinzelmann February 2016
Trelowen was the most wonderful house we have ever stayed in. We cannot fault it. We had the most perfect holiday (in grey, blustery February even!) from the moment that we arrived and met our host, who was completely delightful, and nothing was too much trouble.
Mr Cooke February 2016
This house was fantastic in every way, really couldn't fault it. Looking forward to going back again in the future. The owner was extremely communicative and helpful, which was extremely re-assuring, always at the end of the phone by voice or text to help with any query. Just superb !
