Further details indoors

Owls Roost has its own large sunny patio, with BBQ & picnic table. Inside is a good sized lounge with a cosy fireplace. Just right for a couple or a small family, the main bedroom has its own modern en-suite shower room with walk in shower. There is a king-sized bed and built in wardrobes.

Upstairs is the Roost. This is a small vertically challenged (there is not much head room!) bedroom which is hugely popular with young children. They should however be at least 6 as it is reached by a fairly steep set of stairs.

On-site there is an outdoor pool (seasonal), games room with table tennis, table football and air hockey. There is also a trampoline and children's play area. But most of all there is peace and quiet. The facilities are close by the design of the estate is such that you can genuinely relax in the quiet surroundings.

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 China Fleet Leisure club with its three pools, squash, tennis, and spa.

Fishing...

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.

Animals...

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 2013

Further details

Rentals normally start on a Saturday, we take short breaks from September to May (not school holidays).

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.

Callington

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).
