The Cornwall 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.

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 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).

Thank you for your kind comments & we are so glad you had a good time! As owner managers we feel we are in a good position to combine high quality accommodation and still keep our costs down - this means that we can keep our prices at reasonable levels in these difficult economic times. Thanks for staying.

"Nice cottage/ area but let down by a few little things."

We booked the gulliver cottage for 11 of us. On arrival looked a nice place was let in by the owner and he ran through a few things. Once we had settled in started to notice things like cupboards and … More

We are delighted that overall you enjoyed your stay at our Gulliver cottage. We appreciate your feedback and have initiated the following works/changes with immediate effect.
We have now however extended the hot tub hours until 10:30pm. We feel this is late enough for most people while preserving the peace and quiet of other guests.
The doors you refer to are antiques in keeping with the cottage decor and as such will have some hairline cracks. While it would take a very determined person to see through them, we have had all of these sealed up.
Trehill cottages is a quiet and peaceful location which we think is perfect for a relaxing holiday. This is reflected in the extremely hard work that has been put in to the grounds and the facilities that are provided. We are determined to keep it that way so that all our guests may enjoy themselves without being disturbed by their neighbours. This means that a very small number of rules have to be in place to ensure this.
Finally, the owners live on site some 50m away. There is a 20' hedge separating them from Gulliver, so we are not sure how you could feel watched over. Our guest's privacy is paramount to us but we feel that this element of your review was perhaps a little bit inaccurate.

Overall though, we appreciate your comments and as ever, we use them to ensure that future guests have the very best possible stay. Thank you.
