What to do at Trehill...

Within the four acres of grounds there is so much to do. Take advantage of the...

Outdoor Pool...

This small pool is perfect for children to swim in, but even the largest adult can take a refreshing dip. There are also plenty of sun loungers to enjoy the sun shining from early in the morning to early evening during the summer months. The pool is (depending on the weather) heated and open from mid May to early September.

The Trehill cottages receive free membership to the nearby private China Fleet Leisure club with its three pools, squash, tennis, and spa.


Three fishing ponds provide a contemplative sporting challenge amid beautiful scenery. They are well-stocked with Carp, Mirror Carp, Rudd and Tench. We often see 6lb fish swimming near the surface, especially at feeding times in the evening or morning. The lakes have captivated experienced and "fair weather" anglers alike. So bring along your gear! For more information on fishing click here.

Games Room...

A large barn with free table football and table tennis. There is also Air Hockey and some inexpensive arcade games.

Play areas...

We have two play areas. One for toddlers and something more adventurous for the older children. There is also a large 14' trampoline and swings.


Our donkeys, namely Abraham & Sam have gained fans aged from 8 months to 80 years. They adore the attention and love children.

Bird watching in Cornwall at Trehill...

Finally for those with an interest in birds we have a huge variety from Herons to Kingfishers with hawks, robins, swallows and long-tailed tits much in evidence. Most of these can be seen from your own patio or balcony!

The Grounds...

The four acres feature, three ponds, the paddock for the donkeys and some lovely secluded spots where you can just sit and enjoy the lovely cornish countryside. The elevated nature of these grounds means that there are plenty of sunny spots and the views are magnificent.

Golf and Leisure Facilities - Just a few miles down the road lies the beautiful China Fleet Club. Set beside the banks of the river Tamar it boasts superb leisure facilities as well as a championship golf course. Trehill cottages guests receive free memberships. Guests at Long Barn Cottages have their own on-site indoor leisure facilities.

For really keen golfers we can also arrange fabulous golf breaks at the nearby St Mellion Club - home of the English Open from 2011

Further details

Trehill Cottages can be rented by one large party as it will sleep up to 42 people if its neighbour (long Barn cottages - see our main web site at for more details.

The West Country region

This lovely corner of SE Cornwall enjoys a sheltered micro climate protected by the moors to the north and the Tamar estuary to the south. Trehill itself lies on a mini plateau surrounded by countryside on all sides. This means that it is sunny, light and dry.

The nearest supermarket is the Waitrose just north of Saltash (8 minutes) or a bit further away (10 mins) is Callington

Callington has a Tesco, Co Op and other local shops. There is a farmers market run by the WI every Wednesday and a larger one twice a month. There are some really good country pubs within a short drive as well. Locally there is great walking and cycling.

The nearest beach is just a short drive away and for the active minded there is everything from bike trails to Zip Wires to karting within a very short drive.


The great thing about this area is that although Trehill is exceptionally quiet and peaceful, the main roads are close by. So you can get everywhere very quickly.

Cotehele (5 minutes away) is a beautiful tudor manor house. A little bit further afield there are a number of other wonderful NT house (Lanhydrock, Castle Drogo, Saltram (famous for Alice & Wondreland) and Buckfast, the home of Sir Francis Drake.

The nearest beach is at Seaton (20 minutes) and for adrenalin junkies there is karting, europe's longest zip wire and boating all within 10 minutes.

For golfers, St Mellion (2 miles) is truly outstanding and China Fleet offers very good golf at a reasonable price.

Eden and the gardens of Heligan are about 40 minutes away and even Lands End is onlt 80 minutes.

Closer to home though are the SW coastal paths and if you miss the "urban " too much, Plymouth with its historic barbican centre is only 12 miles away.

There is fishing on site but if you want to try the deep sea version then Looe with it's charter boats is about 25 minutes away.

For those looking for a bit more adventure, there is off road driving, clay pidgeon shooting, karting, Europe's longest zip wire and horse riding all within a short drive (about 10 minutes or so).

"Excellent accommodation in an amazing setting, rude landlady"

Have just spent the weekend at this amazing location. As a group we stayed in Gulliver which sleeps 12 people and has a hot tub attached to it. I was there with female members of my family and close … More

Dear guest, many thanks for your kind comments & we are delighted that you enjoyed yourselves. We apologise if you though your welcome was not up to scratch. Poor Frances had really bad back pains that month & with the best will in the world, we sometimes fail to live up to our standards when we are in pain. It was my (Neville's) fault for not insisting that she remained inside that day. We usually pride ourselves on the quality of our welcome.
Wifi & phone reception in Cornwall can be a bit iffy, but we have now installed fibre optic broadband at Trehill, so we are confident that speeds and reliability should be significantly improved in future. Thanks again for coming to stay.
