Treat yourself and your loved ones to a well deserved break amidst the peace and tranquility that surround the gorgeous Trinity. Tucked away on the beautiful Restormel Estate, in the heart of the Fowey Valley, yet with easy access to the coastal walks and fishing villages along Cornwall's south coast, this charming retreat forms the east wing of the impressive Restormel Manor.
Named after the ancient Holy Trinity Chapel, which used to stand on the site, behind the imposing facade are exquisite yet comfortable interiors that have been thoughtfully created with an eclectic mix of fine linens, soft furnishings, locally-sourced objects and artefacts and unique finds from the local antiques shops in the nearby town of Lostwithiel.
With stunning views of the surrounding parkland and River Fowey, Trinity has its own separate entrance waiting to open up to the delights within. While away many an hour in the relaxing sitting-room, adorned with Georgian wall panelling, dual aspect shuttered windows and a large open fireplace. Here you can sink into the plush sofas and enjoy a movie, games night or lose yourself in a good book selected from the fabulous offering on the bookshelves.
The country-style kitchen/dining-room, complete with traditional blue and white Cornishware, will delight any budding chef as they plan holiday feasts using the finest local produce and for those who prefer dining in the great outdoors, you can fire up the barbecue on the terrace, and then kick back and listen to the River Fowey as it makes it way along the valley - perhaps spotting the odd heron, kingfisher and other wildlife who also choose to visit!
The sounds of the countryside will send you off to sleep at night, snuggled up under the covers in the comfy beds in the two bedrooms. Both rooms are individually designed, creating their own private sanctuary inviting you to enjoy cosy early nights and lazy holiday lie-ins, listening to the birds perform their morning melodies.
As if this couldn't get any better, you also have full access to the extensive leisure facilities at Restormel Manor, shared with other guests staying on the Estate. These include an indoor heated swimming pool, a steam room and sauna, children's play area and tennis court - it's a very special place and for those who like to 'cast a line' there is complimentary fishing on the River Fowey at certain times of the year.
Perfectly-placed, there are extensive woodland and countryside walks to discover right from your front door. You can conquer the magical remains of the 13th Century Restormel Castle, that stands on a mound overlooking the Estate or head up to the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery which offers up a great selection of plants, gifts and not to mention food and drink. It's such a treat, it's sure to become a daily visit!
After a little more adventure? You can walk along the lane to the pretty little town of Lostwithiel, badged the 'antiques capital of Cornwall' with its collection of antiques and interior shops, along with cafes, restaurants and pubs.
The sailing town of Fowey is just a short drive away. Known for its beautiful old streets full of independent shops, galleries and great eateries, it's a fabulous place to spend the day.
Nearby you also have the old harbour town of Charlestown with its famous tall ships as well as the National Trust house and gardens at Lanhydrock. For garden lovers, the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a must and if you fancy getting active you can always go kayaking on the River Fowey or enjoy the scenic cycling trails at Cardinham woods.
