You will also find an illustrated guide book we have written for our guests entitled ‘Our Cornwall’.

Please keep the protective cover on when you are not using it, thank you.

We are also on hand via email or telephone should you need us. Otherwise we will leave you in peace, undisturbed to enjoy a cosy cottage and explore its charming surroundings.

Other things to note:

LOCATION

Trevenna Cottage is in a secluded location, at least 1½ miles (30-40 minute walk) from Pelynt, the nearest village. There is a local bus service from Pelynt. We recommend that our guests use a car when staying with us.

SHOPPING

In Pelynt village (1½ miles) you’ll find two very good grocery shops, both with convenient parking in front of the door. Boxall’s Spar Shop and Post Office is in the centre of the village, it sells a wide range of chilled and organic produce, including local cheeses, hams, lots of other delicatessen products, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh herbs, toiletries, newspapers, magazines, wines, spirits, hot snacks and stationery. It also has a cash machine. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 7.30 am until 9pm and Sunday 9am until 6pm.

Pelynt Stores & O’Keeffe’s Traditional Family Butchers, is just opposite the church, behind the Old School. It has an excellent family run butchers (delicious, self made, award winning sausages!) and stocks a wide range of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, hot snacks, beers and wines etc. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 5am until 7pm and Sunday 8am until 6pm.

Opening times for both stores can vary over Public Holidays.

You'll also find various excellent shopping opportunities in Looe (6 miles). For great fresh fish and seafood direct from the quay go to Pengellys Fish Market on Buller Quay (which leads from the short stay car park). Also on Buller Quay is the farm shop Quayside Fresh, selling a great range of local farm fresh vegetables, salad and fruits as well as dairy produce, bread, biscuits, tinned goods, drinks, a wide range of groceries and they also have a Warrens Butchers selling quality local meats, sausages, etc.

Also in Looe you’ll find two Co-Op stores, bakers, Boots Chemist, Post Office and banks.

Supermarkets: There is a Morrisons supermarket in Liskeard (7½ miles) , ASDA and Sainsbury’s in Bodmin (14 miles) and an excellent Waitrose in Saltash (18 miles).

For a wide range of quality international wines we recommend Waitrose and Morrisons.

DOGS

Well behaved pets are welcome STRICTLY BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT ONLY!! There is a surcharge of £20 per dog, per stay. Maximum 2 dogs. Please ask us when booking if you would like to bring a canine friend. Dogs are not permitted in the bedroom, bathroom or on any of the furniture. Please bring bedding, bowls and towels etc for your pet. We ask that you NEVER, under any circumstances, leave dogs alone in the cottage or garden whilst you are out or allow them to be noisy or annoy other guests. REMEMBER: This is a farming area and there is livestock in the neighbouring fields; DO NOT allow your dog out on its own, and do not allow it to harass the animals.

CLEAR UP thoroughly after your dogs, including poop-scooping the garden and disposing of waste appropriately; securely tied in a plastic bag.

WOOD-BURNER

If you would like we can organise logs, kindling and firelighters for your arrival. The cost is £20, which includes logs, kindling and firelighters, which should last 3-4 evenings depending on usage. If you need further supplies you can buy them from both local shops in Pelynt village. Please let us know when booking if you would like us to organise your logs.

If using the wood-burner please BE SURE to read the section ‘Wood-Burner’ in the Welcome Manual in your cottage. The wood-burner should only be stocked with seasoned logs. No other materials should be burnt in the stove!

THE KITCHEN

We love cooking! Time together on holiday in the kitchen with friends, music and a bottle of wine, cooking with the family, or preparing a romantic dinner for two is great fun, and we try to support that with a well equipped and stocked kitchen and a selection of recipe books. We keep a small larder of cooking basics, such as herbs, spices, salt, peppercorns, olive oil, vinegar, stock cubes, flour, sugar etc, as well as supplies such as tea, coffee, freezer bags, foil, grease proof paper, cling film and cleaning items. All the things you need on a self-catering holiday but don't necessarily want to bring with you or buy and carry home. 

We do not charge for this, and cannot guarantee these items will definitely be available, everything is simply what we and our guests buy and leave for others to enjoy, please feel free to use the store and add to it. If we all in someway replenish what we use, donate a replacement, or simply add something else to the larder, we can all enjoy the benefit now and next time!

About Ian Dickinson

Hello Everyone!

I am originally from south east Cornwall where Trevenna Cottage is situated. Now based in Berlin, Germany since 1995, but miss Cornwall's beautiful rolling green hills, cliffs, beaches, warm climate, humour, friendliness, great seafood, friends and my family. Can't be there all the time due to work commitments so, with the help of my brother Derek and our great local team in Cornwall, we have been letting Trevenna Cottage and our other two cottages successfully for some years now, and we have just decided to also list here at HomeAway (July 2017).

When we can't be there we're delighted to know our guests are enjoying the cottages. It's a lot of fun being a host, I really enjoy the contact with all our guests, answering their questions, passing on local tips and chatting. We hope you, your friends, partners and families also come to love Trevenna as much as we do. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Kindest regards,

Ian

Everything you need from a holiday/short break, whatever time of year - charming, elegant cottage set in beautiful countryside with the most fabulous recommendations of beaches, walks and interesting places to visit, all on your doorstep. Thoughtful, caring hosts.

Talin C - Jan 18

This place has back to back 5 star reviews which is the main reason I ended up booking it. And sure enough, it lived up to expectations. Ian is really a stellar host, responds to emails instantly and guidance on the local area is excellent and well thought out. The cottage is gorgeous, everything you'd want - cosy, well-equipped for cooking and totally silent. Heaven. I'm sure we'll be back.

Katy R- December 17

Five stars all round for Trevenna. The cottage is lovely and quaint, yet has the modern touches that made it feel like such a privilege to be there. The location is idyllic. Ian's communication was absolutely spot on. He gave crystal clear instructions and the self check-in was seamless. We would definitely visit Trevenna again!

Leanda B - Oct 18

Trevenna is a gorgeous, stylish cottage. Beautifully decorated, with all the comforts of home and a 5 star hotel.

Ed K - Oct 17

Highly recommend charming Trevenna Cottage! Beautifully decorated, very well appointed, white-glove clean, and is located in a magical area. It was even better than we had hoped for. Perfect! We would return to Trevenna in a heart beat and hope that we have the opportunity to do so soon.

Helen RG - Aug 17

A haven of loveliness and it's tucked away location makes it even more special. All you could need for a relaxing break with creature comforts aplenty.
