Overview

About the property

Split level 3 double bedroom house

Trevalsea has three double bedrooms and comfortably sleeps six people. It is ideal for families but also suits a couple or friends wishing to spend a peaceful holiday but be within easy reach of Cornwall's many attractions. With the exception of a downstairs double bedroom (bunk beds and a convertible sofa) and WC, all the accommodation is on one level and consists of a kitchen, bathroom with separate WC, a separate shower unit, living room and two further double bedrooms (one double, one twin). All bedrooms have hand basins. There is a balcony accessed from the living room, which offers spectacular views of the valley and out to sea. Outside, there is a paved patio and access to the sloping garden. The house has sufficient night storage heaters to ensure a cozy visit at any time of year. Linen is provided and all beds will be made up for arrival. There is off road parking at the front of the property and further parking across the road. Electricity is included in the rental charge

Trevalsea has been a family holiday home for many years, and we very much welcome visitors both new and old. The house has numerous books, maps and leaflets about things to do, places to visit and places to eat. Two large scale walking maps of the area are pinned up in the hallway.

Five favourite local things to do -

Walk along the beach at Trebarwith Strand, if you are lucky with a good low spring tide there is over half a mile of beach to stroll and life guarded swimming areas in the season. Children and adults can be kept amused for hours.

High tide and a rough sea? Then watch the waves crashing on to the rocks or retreat inside the Port William, probably the best situated pub in Cornwall, for a cold or warm beverage and watch.

Trebarwith too busy? Walk to Backways Cove just over the hill and normally have this tranquil valley and rocky cove all to yourselves.

Walk part of the North Cornwall coast path, just pick a section. Trebarwith to Tintagel is great, or for a real work out, Trebarwith to Portgaverne, only 5 miles but 6 valleys to descend into and climb back out of on the way. Allow 4 hours for this one, but it really is spectacular and there is no other road down to the coast until you get to Portgaverne.

After a busy day or just because you deserve it, relax on the balcony with a drink or a meal enjoying the beautiful view, the peace and a sunset.

Car: recommended

Trevalsea is a superbly positioned, deceptively spacious, split level house in the small village of Trewarmett. Situated at 350 feet it has stunning views over Trebarwith valley to the sea. Trewarmett is less than 2 miles from Tintagel (for nearest provision shops) and within 5 miles of Boscastle and Camelford. With easy access to the beautiful and rugged North Cornwall coast, there is something for all the family - sandy beaches, such as Trebarwith Strand (a 1 mile drive or walk way), Bossiney and Polzeath, the fishing villages of Port Isaac (Port Wenn in TV series Doc Martin) and Padstow, Boscastle with its Elizabethan harbour and Tintagel, the legendary home of King Arthur. Also locally, visit Camel Valley vineyard or, the real star of the area, walks along the unspoilt coast and valleys or get away from it all on Bodmin Moor. Further afield are attractions such as The Eden Project, reachable within an hour by car. We would recommend a car but there is a bus stop in the village, though services are not frequent, and there are also several local taxi services.

Notes:
Though the house does not have specific disabled facilities, having two of the bedrooms, the lounge, kitchen, bathroom and balcony on the entrance floor makes it convenient for anyone who is elderly or infirm. The off road parking at the front is sloping but this leads onto a flat area to reach the front door. PLEASE NOTE The balcony at the back of the property is enclosed with railings but we would recommend that younger children are supervised at all times when using it.

Gorgeous view from roomy bungalow in tiny village

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Trevalsea, though there were a few issues. First Trewarmett is tiny and had no pub or stores of any kind. There is also no footpath to the beach or any town. So you have to drive. The house itself was ok but had a run down, seen-better-days feel. It is sorley in need of an upgrade. The shower is quirky with no privacy. The power cut out on the last day. I would give the place 3 stars except that we had a wonderful time and worked around the problems. We loved Tintagel, the coast walks, Boscastle, Port Isaac, Bodmin Moor, and so much more about the area. If Mike does a little renovation we would definitely return.

Beautiful view, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The view out the back was beautiful--highlight of our stay--but we couldn't enjoy the patio since it was a little rainy and patio is slippery when wet. Arrangements worked out well--good directions and information on the area. The cottage interior was old and worn--old carpets, furniture, etc. with lots of "stuff" everywhere. kitchen was ok and having washer/dryer was convenient. House layout very unusual--only shower is located in the middle of the hallway connecting to all the upstairs rooms--no privacy. Also we had to bring our own towels and bath soap.

Homely with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and homely. Cottage is much bigger in size than you may first think.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside with amazing sea views from the balcony.

Great place to come if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of City life .

Definitely need a car as the nearest shops are about 2 miles away .

Lovely walks using public footpaths and its worth while taking the country lane to walk to Port William using the road as the views are stunning when you arrive.

Lovely comfy cottage with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week in the cottage. It is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you will need for your holiday. The best thing about it is undoubtedly the fantastic view from the lounge looking out to sea! You can walk to the local beach Trebarwith Strand where you will find the Port William Pub. It has to have the best location of any pub in Cornwall! The cottage is also ideal for visiting Tintagel, Port Issac etc. It is a fabulous place to stay and would love to return one day.
