Lilliput is a deceptively small but really lovely holiday cottage.

This is one property where pictures really do not tell the whole story. Lilliput is deceptively large with 2 good sized bedrooms (both with en-suite shower rooms). A full kitchen with dishwasher & washing machine. Gas central heating and a lovely lounge with solid Oak floors. The lounge has a great 32" LCD TV with FULL Sky package (inc sports & movies). There is a DVD player with its own DVD library, wi-fi & sound system

This is also a private, detached cottage, with its own hot, tub perfect for couples or famillies

It gets even better, it also has a separate, wonderfully sunny, conservatory. Unique for a property sleeping 4, you get effectively 2 lounges.

Lilliput is part of the Trehill estate, where just 7 cottages share 4 acres of well-maintained, sunny, grounds with free on site FISHING, donkeys, games room, trampoline & out door pool

As a bonus, all guests receive free membership of the nearby China Fleet health club. There you can enjoy top quality private facilities including tropical indoor pool complex, gym, spa room, exercise classes, squash tennis and golf (extra charge).

Getting round Cornwall is a breeze as you are close to an A road, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of genuine Cornish countryside.

There are loads of things to do nearby including Cotehele NT mansion, more golf at the acclaimed St Mellion club, karting, zip wires and of course the lovely beaches (nearest is about 20 minutes away).

Golf memberships at China Fleet are also available for a small supplement

Newly installed hot tub available from May 1 2015. Hot tub usage charge £50 per week & £35 per short break.

Further details outdoors

Trehill cottages have 4 acres of peaceful well-maintained grounds for you to enjoy. There is lots to do here, but you also receive memberships at the superb China Fleet club, just 7 miles away on the banks of the River Tamar (see below for more details). Lilliput is one of 4 cottages at Trehill cottages, with a further 3 making the adjoining Long Barn cottages.

Outside, Lilliput is entirely detached and enclosed in its own grounds (extra safety if you have toddlers). There are benches, table & chairs & BBQ. At least somewhere will be getting the sun, pretty much any time of day. The conservatory is also very sunny)

Lilliput is right by the heated outdoor pool and has its own private hot tub (extra charge of £50 per week & £35 per short break of 4 nights or less))

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.


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.

China Fleet Health Club – just a short drive from Trehill cottages takes you to this superb facility on the banks of the river Tamar. You receive 2 adult & 2 child memberships. This gives free use of the great facilities for 2 adults & 2 children

For extra adults or children these charges will apply...

About this location

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).

"A home away from home"

Nicely tucked away from town but still very accessible to places of interest. The cottage had a 'homey' feel as is well laid out, all essentials provided and the owners very friendly and wel… More

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Wifi has always been a bit of an issue in Cornwall, but we have recently upgraded to fibre optic broadband which should ensure a more consistent & faster signal. We make the journey time to China Fleet to be between 15 & 20 minutes depending on traffic, but with its stunning new spa facility, we think that the trip is now even more

"Comfortable and excellent base for exploring this area"

Stayed in Llilliput with my mother, we both had an en suite shower room. Very clean and comfortable. Close to quite a few National Trust properties. Leisure club membership was included which is a … More

Dear guest, thank you for your kind comments. Lilliput is one of our very favourite cottages, our favourite feature being its lovely conservatory! Following your comments we have ensured that all our cottages get extra toilet rolls & J cloths. We have in the past considered adding milk etc, but getting adequate supply on the day & the variety of guest preferences (skimmed, semi skimmed & whole fat) did mean that when we trialled it, there was a high level of wastage. The Spar in Callington is open day & night & is only a 2 minute drive away.
