Tresowes Green Cottage was built in the early 1800's and has been modernised to provide high quality accommodation within tranquil grounds of 1.25 acres bordering onto Wheal Grey Lake. There are outdoor barbecue and dining areas and a heated garden room overlooking the lake; it is indeed a quiet haven. There are supermarkets in nearby Helston and good restaurants at Praa Sands and in Porthleven both within 5 to 7 mins by car. Facilities include cooker, fridge, TV, WiFi, Ipod station with CD player and radio and central heating.
From the moment we first saw Tresowes Green Cottage we knew we had found a gem and it was a place we wanted to both live and to share with others. The peacefulness of this setting by the Wheal Grey Lake and its closeness to the spectacular coastline with its glorious beaches, hidden coves and wonderful amenities make it a wonderful place to live and visit.
Since opening our accommodation to guests in 2012, by offering two holiday lets in Cornwall, The Barn and The Cottage, which makes self catering holidays unique, we have been fortunate to welcome wonderful guests from all over the world, many of whom have returned and regard Tresowes Green as their second home.
Tresowes is located within a World Heritage Site due to its history of mining for tin, copper and china clay as well as its outstanding beauty. The hamlet itself is very quiet with only 48 dwellings, each set apart, providing privacy. There are numerous award winning restaurants within easy distance so we would recommend guests have a car to maximise their enjoyment.
We are very conveniently located to visit such attractions as Porthleven, St Michael's Mount, Marazion, St Ives, Penzance, The Lizard, Lands End, Minack Theatre, Poldark Mine, numerous Gardens, Beaches and the Coastal Path.
John and Leslie Farah Church purchased this barn in 2012

We stayed a week at the barn, two adults, a child and our dog. The property is very well equipped with everything you would need. There are well maintained gardens, with sun loungers, swing ball and badminton. The property also backs onto the river Whey.
The nearest beach is Praa Sands with endless sand and a lovely restaurant but doesn't allow dogs, however we found a dog friendly beach at Prussia Cove and Kennack, both a short drive.
The owners Leslie and Johnny are polite and very helpful. They gave us advice on where to visit and even took delivery of our online shopping for us.
We would definitely recommend this property and are looking forward to returning next year.
The cottage was very well equipped, had use of the grounds including the summer house and over looked a lake. It was very clean and easy to use. The owners were helpful and friendly giving good advice about the best places to visit. It was easy to get to St Michael's Mount, Penzance, St Ives, Porthleven the Lizard and Land's End areas of Cornwall, so an ideal base.
Don't want to write this review as I fear it will soon be impossible to find any vacancies ;-). This was an incredible place with everything you could wish for. The grounds are beautiful and the cottage is really well appointed. Great hosts, there when you need and very friendly but made it feel like the place was ours. Will definitely be back as long there are some available slots!
The cottage and surrounding area were stunning! Very cozy! The owners could not have been more lovely or helpful! We would definitely recommend Tresowes Green Cottages. Hope to visit again. Thanks for a lovely break!
A lovely cottage, ideal for two. Friendly and helpful owners on-site. Quiet location. Tastefully furnished to a high standard. Highly recommended, we would enjoy a return visit any time of year.
A very warm welcome from the owners. Accommodation was to a high quality and if you needed any info on places to go to visit, to eat or help Leslie and Jonny were very helpful and accommodating - they were on hand for all our holiday needs. The grounds and gardens were fantastic and you are made to feel very welcome to use all areas including the lovely summer house. The location is ideal for the beach at Praa Sands - only a 5 min drive away and also within 10 min drive of some really great places to eat.
