Self Catering at Cornwall
Welcome to Trevadlock Manor & Cottages,Self Catering at Cornwall.Trevadlock Manor & Cottages is situated in 24 acres of meadowland leading to a private bank of the River Lynher in a truly unspoilt part of Cornwall on the edge of Bodmin Moor. The peace and tranquillity of this setting belie its convenience as a holiday base. With one wing of the manor house and five cottages available for let, Trevadlock represents versatile accommodation either for individual couples and families, or for larger groups who may wish to rent several properties and take advantage of the communal entertaining space within the house. For the coming season the owners will be actively publicising events and activities which may appeal to such groups – go to activities/events. They are also able to arrange catering using delicious local produce for such groups, ranging from breakfast and packed lunches, to a full evening meal. The properties are furnished to a high standard, and the cottages classified four stars by Visit Britain. The West Wing combines interesting historical features with imaginative decoration and comfortable furnishings. It sleeps up to six in three rooms: one double (en-suite), one twin with double and single bed, and one twin with two single beds. The vine, clematis and wisteria-clad row of 19th Century stone barns has been converted into five light, airy cottages, with an emphasis on simple, stylish ecoration and furnishing.. Four of the cottages: The Dairy, The Forge, The Granary and Swallows’ Barn have 2 bedooms: 1 double and 1 twin. Lambs’ Barn has 3 bedrooms: 1 double and 2 twins.
Outside, each property has its own garden area with furniture and barbecue- the cottages having individual decks adjoining a large communal lawn. Shared features include a trampoline, an over ground circular plunge pool and a sandbox filled with Cornish sea sand. Sociable pygmy goats and horses reside in the neighbouring paddock and there’s access to 24 acres of rolling fields with ancient trees, leading to the riverbank.
We love dogs, and judging by the comments we have had, dogs love Trevadlock. There is wonderful walking right here, leading to thousands of acres of open space on the moor, or the wonderful North and South Coastal Paths.
We find that there’s a huge range of things people want to do on holiday-from those who just chill out here, to those who want to strike out every day in search of new discoveries and excitement. There’s also a huge range of activities on offer. All the pictures on these pages are of our family and our guests and friends indulging in some of those – from sipping wine on the lawn or barbecuing by the river, to riding and sailing.
Whenever we go on holiday, we like to get local knowledge and do the things the guide books generally don’t tell you about, and we try to give people the benefit of our local knowledge when they’re here. Mostly, you can make your mind up on the day which beach you want to go to, or what other entertainment might be good if the beach doesn’t appeal. However, there are some activities you might want to consider booking in advance – or even structuring your holiday around.
