Why Kate Buckingham chose North Cornwall

Trehanoo House is our family holiday home and as such we keep it set up for ease of use for 8 people on holiday. We keep it up to date. We spend a month in the winter there ourselves, decorating, updating and adding to the comfort and ease of having a holiday in the house. I ask for feedback from tenants and, where possible, include them in next year’s update. Any problems are dealt with immediately by either myself or Jackie the housekeeper.

What makes this house unique

A hot shower when you arrive back from a surf is a joy; you can rinse your wetsuit off whilst still in it and peel it off whilst under the hot water and then hang it up on the purpose made wetsuit rack. Then quickly into the house for a proper shower in the wet room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just to say thank you for the use of your house and annexe last week, we had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the house and garden (and views) to their full extent. We were short of nothing and it was beautifully cleaned when we arrived.

In fact we were so delighted we would love to re-book for next year if possible?' 'Third year running and I know we'll be back ... yet again it met all our wildest Cornish dreams.'

'We love this house, you've kitted it out so well'

'Trehanoo's been luxury, loved the sundeck, outside shower and comfy sofas'

'Very good house for an extended family holiday.'

'Had a great time riding around on the bikes'

A wonderful all-weather retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Trehanoo; after last year's fantastically wet and cold week, the girls all voted to return this year, and at the end of this year's stay, warmer than last year but rainy and with Hale Bay devoid of teenage nightlife, the girls (who had managed to conjure a crowd of friends from thin air each night) agreed it was the best week ever and we all look forward to next year. I like the idea of being able to use the garden to dine in and to recline on those wonderful hammocks but it is a testament to the house that it creates such an amazingly good atmosphere in a wet July!

Owner's Response: Thanks for a lovely review. I sit at my desk feeling awful for the poor tenants, in yet another awful wet summer, so it really is great that you still manage to have such a good holiday.

Brilliant holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over a rather rainy Easter holiday, but had an absolutely brilliant time. House is clean, warm, and welcoming. Garden is great for kids as wraps around the house and is completely enclosed when gate is shut. Nice terrace for evening drinks in the sun (when it shines!)

We shared with another family and the arrangement of the house was perfect for two families with bedrooms both downstairs and upstairs, so we felt we had separate areas and weren't tripping over each other. Plenty of space, decent bathrooms, nice linen, soft towels, etc.

You can walk (downhill) very easily to the beach in about 5 mins, it's a steep uphill return, but good for working off the fish+chips, and ice-cream. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodation, and hope to return another time. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Trehanoo House is the perfect place to stay for a holiday. Situated close to Polzeath (5 minute walk) . Ideal for family holidays, (we have returned every year for the last three years). The house is always exceptionally clean on arrival and is very well maintained. Plenty of room to relax on the veranda or patio if the weather is kind, Big garden to allow children to play safely. The walks around the coast are beautiful, short walk to Daymer Bay and if you are feeling very adventurous carry on to Rock and have a well deserved cup of coffee and piece of delicious cake in the Blue Tomato Cafe.

Fantastic Holiday Home great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was great the photo's don't do it justice.

The bedrooms were lovely clean white linen on all the beds

The communal areas really comfy and furnished to a good standard everything you could need was there. it was great to have the outside shower for the returning surfers no soggy sandy persons trailing through the house to the shower.

The deck at the side of the house was great for the early morning sun and the terrace at the side made the most of the afternoon sun pretty garden.

We were a group of 8 adults and there was plenty or room for all, looking forward to a return visit.
