Dogs

We welcome dogs at Hill House, the area is dog lover's paradise, and well behaved pets are more than welcome here by prior arrangement, provided that they are not allowed in the bedroom, bathroom or on any of the furniture. Please bring bedding, bowls and towels etc. for your pet. We ask that you never, under any circumstances, leave them alone in the cottage or garden whilst you are out or allow them to be noisy or annoy other guests. There are many superb walks from the cottage for both dogs and their owners. PLEASE REMEMBER: This is a farming area and there is livestock in the neighbouring fields, do not allow your dog out on its own, and do not allow it to harass the animals. We also request that owners clear up thoroughly after their pets, icluding poop-scooping the garden and disposing of waste appropriately; securely tied in a plastic bag. There is a charge of £15 per dog. Please let us know when booking if you are bringing a canine friend! Thank you.

Multi-Fuel Stove

If you would like we can organise logs, coal, kindling and firelighters for your arrival. The cost is £17, which includes 1 bag of house coal, 1 bag of logs, 1 bag of kindling and firelighters. If you need further supplies you can buy them from both local shops in Pelynt village and most local petrol stations, prices are generally higher at the petrol stations. Be sure the logs and coal you buy are suitable for a multi-fuel stove!

Please let us know when booking if you would like us to organise your stove.

If using the multi-fuel stove please BE SURE to read the section 'Multi-Fuel Stove...' in the Welcome Manual in your cottage. The stove should only be stocked with seasoned logs and certain coals: please check! No other materials should be used/burnt in the stove!

The Kitchen 

We love cooking! Time together on holiday in the kitchen with friends, music and a bottle of wine, cooking with the family, or preparing a romantic dinner for two is great fun, and we try to support that with a well equipped and stocked kitchen. We keep a small larder of cooking basics, such as herbs, spices, salt, peppercorns, olive oil, vinegar, stock cubes, flour, sugar etc, as well as supplies such as tea, coffee, freezer bags, foil, grease proof paper, cling film and cleaning items. All the things you need on a self-catering holiday but don't necessarily want to bring with you or buy and carry home. 

We do not charge for this, and cannot guarantee these items will definitely be available, everything is simply what we and our guests buy and leave for others to enjoy, please feel free to use the store and add to it. If we all in someway replenish what we use, donate a replacement, or simply add something else to the larder, we can all enjoy the benefit now and next time!

Barbecue

There is a portable barbecue in the garden. You'll find utensils specifically for the barbecue in the kitchen. Be sure to empty the barbecue completely and clean it throughly after use, including the grate. Please, leave it as you would expect to find it. Thanks!

Location

There are a wealth of local attractions easily accessible from Hill House including; Talland Bay, the picturesque fishing ports of Looe (see below) and Polperro, The Wolly Monkey Sanctuary, the internationally renowned Eden Project, Tate Gallery St Ives, several National Trust properties, including Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Antony House as well as beautifully rugged Bodmin Moor and a variety of beautiful , sandy beaches, bays and hidden coves skirting our stunning Cornish coastline.

Looe

Looe remains a fishing town, and several fish dealers operate from the docks of East Looe. With its fleet of small fishing boats returning their catches to port daily, Looe has a reputation for producing excellent fresh fish. The town is also a centre for shark fishing, and is the home of the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain.

Looe's main business today is, however, tourism, with much of the town given over to hotels, guest houses and holiday homes, along with a large number of pubs, restaurants, and shops selling beach equipment, ice cream and Cornish pasties. Inland from Looe lie many camping and caravan sites, as well as a famous Woolly monkey sanctuary. Other local attractions include the beaches, sailing, fishing and diving, and spectacular coastal walks (especially that via Talland to Polperro. Several stately homes, including Antony House, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe, and Lanhydrock House, as well as the Eden Project near St Austell may be visited by tourists who can travel by car.

Outside the busy summer months, the town remains a centre for shopping and entertainment for local villagers. There is a tradition of the townsfolk wearing fancy dress on New Year's Eve, when the streets are thronged with revellers in inventive outfits. Looe has been on the list of the top 10 places in the UK to celebrate New Year.

Looe is being regenerated, like many other ports, to serve as a small cargo port. On the high ground north of East and West Looe there are many modern houses and a recreational area called 'The Downs'.

East Looe

East Looe centres on its broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier, creation of Joseph Thomas, a new lifeboat station and St Mary's Church. Stretching back from here is a grid of narrow streets forming the main business area of the town, packed with many small shops, restaurants and pubs, and the Old Guildhall, now a museum. Along the estuary lies the quay, with several fish dealers. Towards the bridge lies the Victorian Guildhall, and just north of the bridge the railway station. This is the terminus of the Looe Valley branch line to Liskeard (at Liskeard, the line connects with the main Plymouth to Penzance Great Western Main Line).

On the hilltop above East Looe lies Shutta, and beyond that the Sunrising housing estate and Looe Community School. Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, and further on the bay and village of Millendreath with another beach.

West Looe

West Looe spreads west from the bridge on the Polperro Road towards Sclerder, and along the river south of the bridge, with hotels, restaurants and boarding houses along the waterfront and houses climbing the perilous cliff above, towards a cluster of shops and businesses and the Church of St Nicholas.

Further south along the coast road is Hannafore Point, marking the edge of Looe Harbour, with to the west the wide, stony Hannafore beach, facing across a narrow channel to Looe Island (officially called St. George's Island). Slightly inland is the hamlet of Portlooe. Beyond lies a coastal path leading to the hamlets of Porthallow and Talland, and from there on to Polperro. Two towers mark one end of a nautical measured mile, the other end is marked by two towers near Talland Bay.

New Year's celebration

On New Year's Eve, Looe has a surprisingly large celebration. The small fishing town, usually quiet in winter, due to the largely seasonal economy, is host to an influx of visitors. People flock the streets in their hundreds, wearing fancy dress, a tradition upheld by all ages. The crowds begin the evening in the town and slowly move towards the seafront for a fireworks display, and the announcement of the new year.

Shopping

In Pelynt village (1½ miles) you'll find two very good grocery shops, both with convenient parking in front of the door.

Boxall's Spar Shop and Post Office is in the centre of the village, it sells a wide range of chilled and organic produce, including local cheeses, hams, lots of other delicatessen products, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, toiletries, newspapers, magazines, wines, spirits, hot snacks and stationary. It also has a cash machine.

Opening times are Monday to Saturday 7.30 am until 9pm and Sunday 9am until 6pm.

Pelynt Stores & O'Keeffe's Traditional Family Butchers, is just opposite the church, behind the Old School. It has an excellent family run butchers (great sausages!) and stocks a wide range of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, hot snacks, beers and wines etc.

Opening times are Monday to Saturday 5am until 7pm and Sunday 8am until 6pm.

Opening times for both stores can vary over Public Holidays.

There is a Morrison's supermarket in Liskeard (7½ miles) , ASDA and Sainsbury's in Bodmin (14 miles) and a Waitrose in Saltash (18 miles).

Here are some of our most recent reviews:

Colette V - Trevenna - May 2014

Our stay at Trevenna House was quaint and so relaxing. Although Ian wasn't there, he had a lovely welcome letter and emailed on our arrival to make sure we found the cottage okay and we had everything that we needed. Ian also provided great local shopping, restaurant and hiking advice which was very helpful. Listening to birds singing and sheep baaing in the distance was exactly what as needed. Highly recommended.

Jenna W - Trevenna - May 2014

Trevenna cottage was everything it promised to be. We spent a week here on our honeymoon. The cottage is beautiful and perfect for a romantic break for 2. The kitchen facilities were fantastic and we ended up staying in and cooking more nights than we usually would when away for a week. The location is perfect if you are looking for a secluded venue. We also used a local taxi firm one evening to try the food and ales at the local pub highly recommended! The cottage is extremely clean and tidy and there were lots of DVDs and games on offer plus the log burning fire all great extras that made our stay even more perfect. Ian was a great host extremely quick to respond to any questions and also kept up updated on various changes etc to the cottage before our stay.

Claire S - Trevenna - May 2014

Ian is a fantastic host - he anticipates everything you could possibly need. My boyfriend and I found Trevenna to be well equipped and the perfect getaway cottage. We felt perfectly at home and all the info on the property and surrounding area was provided in a trusty manual. Couldn't have asked for a better setting to escape city life and recharge our batteries.

Isabel H - Trevenna - April 2014

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time at Trevenna Cottage. The house is lovely and has everything you need for a relaxing weekend on the countryside. We especially enjoyed the fireplace and the beautiful garden as well as the well-equipped kitchen. The house is located in a very nice area of Cornwall, which is not too touristy but has many pretty villages, beaches, and hiking paths. It was also a pleasure to communicate with Ian, who always responded quickly and very friendly. Thanks for this wonderful stay - we would love to come back soon!

Ajay P - Trevenna - April 2014

'Fantastic, lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Ian's communication and help before and throughout our stay was incredible, one of our best ever renting experiences.'

Jackie L - Trevenna - March 2014

'We had a very good stay at Trevenna Cottage it was as we remembered it. Ian replied to our requests in good time especially as our visit was a last minute thing. I would certainly recommend this cottage to my friends and family.'

Roos L - Trevenna - February 2014

'We had a great time at Trevenna, it's a beautiful place and Ian was most helpful as a host. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and remote place to stay in Cornwall.'

Liam M - Trevenna - February 2014

'My girlfriend and I had a wonderful romantic stay at Trevenna on Valentines weekend. Ian was extremely helpful in allowing me to arrange flowers and chocolates and had them placed in the bedroom for me prior to arrival. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean, warm and cosy. Bed was comfortable and linen of a good quality. Looe not too far away where we had a good Sunday Carvery at Smugglers Cott restaurant. Would certainly stay here again and would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet weekend away in a beautiful, if rural, setting!'

Lorna B - Trevenna - February 2014

'We've just come back from 3 restful days at Trevenna and are happy to recommend it. Communication with Ian was friendly and clear and the organisation was efficient and thorough. It all felt very straight forward for us. Trevenna is in a beautiful and peaceful setting and had everything we needed to make our stay easy and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the lovely open fire and cosy sitting room area. Some might like a bigger bed but the four poster double felt luxurious and a bit special. It was a great place for a winter break but it would be wonderful in Spring and summer to enjoy the private garden and the fantastic countryside around it. Everything was clean, well organised and welcoming, even down to the fresh flowers in the kitchen and bedroom. LOVELY!!

Caleb K - Trevenna - February 2014

'I booked Trevenna cottage for my parents for a short break for their anniversary. Unfortunately the weather was awful so happily the location and the cottage itself were great for a little escape including the eden project on the doorstep. Ian was a wonderful host who did everything to make the stay perfect and helped out with recommendations and making the cottage just right. Ian was very communicative and helpful with all my questions and while I've not been myself I will happily recommend Trevenna for a great Cornish getaway.'

Peter S - Trevenna - January 2014

'Trevenna Cottage was all that we hoped it would be. Cosy, clean, lovely decor, very well equipped, peaceful and in a wonderful setting. Booking and communication arrangements were first class. Well done Ian, it is a delight.'

Hans B - Trevenna - January 2014

'A wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting. Very clean with all the luxury and charm of an old English cottage. Very good and friendly communication with Ian. Would recommend it. 5 stars well deserved!'

Tobias R - Trevenna- December 2013

'We spent a relaxing week off in Trevenna Cottage. On our arrival it was already night and raining, but everything was carefully arranged (front door enlighted, well heated, personal welcome letter, fresh little flowers!). What a pleasant surprise after six hours driving. Our contact with Ian was always excellent, the informations he gave us were detailed and his answers prompt. We felt in best hands. The Cottage is really well equipped and tastefully furnished (not over-decorated). Hopefully we're getting the chance to come back one day... Thank you so much Ian, we wish you a nice Christmas Eve. Greetings from Cologne, Katharina, Tobias and little Sonja.'

Toby M - Trevenna - November 2013

'I can't praise Ian enough. So helpful, so accommodating, rapid responses, didn't bat an eyelid when I realised I'd initially booked the wrong dates...perfect, as was the cottage. Cosy, clean and charming. Definitely recommended for those who want a peaceful, cosy break away in Cornwall.'

Beth M - Trevenna - October 2013

'We only had time for a short break at Trevenna, but it was just perfect. Even though we arrived late, we found the cottage with no problem thanks to the clear directions. The cottage is cosy, perfect for a couple in need of a quiet, relaxing get away. The local village had wood for the fire, we went further afield for groceries, but once stocked up we felt right at home. The location was great for a coastal walk from Polperro to Polruan, Looe and Talland Bay were super close and we enjoyed a day out at Eden Project. The hamlet itself was lovely, rolling hills, lake, friendly neighbours, including the horses and sheep and very private. our only issue was that we had to leave so soon! Ian was a great host, clear and prompt communication, the cottage was very clean and felt like a country hotel. We are already thinking about out next visit. Amazing value too :)'

Nicola S - Trevenna - October 2013

'This cottage is gorgeous. It's cosy but plenty big enough for two people to stay very comfortably. The facilities available are great, lots of space for all your clothes and other bits. Spacious bath and shower facilities. The fire place is great, we used it every night and wood is amazing value from local shops. It's tucked away and private but within easy access of local amenities in Pelynt. We cooked most might rather than eating out. The cooker is sufficient and storage space for food is good. Aesthetically it's very pretty and well decorated. Ian welcomed us and was very friendly and helpful during our stay. We highly recommend couples visit here for a little getaway. There's lots to do. Looe has a beach and lots of shops and restaurant. If you wanted to travel to Plymouth it's not far. We spent the day there. We also went to the Eden project which isn't too long a drive. We left feeling like there's so much more we could have done. Ideal for people who want to go on walks and enjoy the countryside.'

Ivan F - Trevenna - September 2013

'Staying at Trevenna Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip!! The experience of staying in this gorgeous cottage in the middle of the English countryside was fantastic. The cottage is very comfortable and very well equipped. If you want to stay in a quiet and unique location this cottage is for you. We used the cottage as a base to explore the Cornish coast.....loved it!!'

Cynthia T - Trengrove - September 2013?'We have such a wonderful time staying at Trengrove Cottage in Cornwall. The place is very neat and cute, with a professional kitchen to make great dishes if you decided to bring home some fresh seafood from local markets. Also available is a BBQ in the garden - we had a lovely time enjoying BBQ food one starry night!'

Andy G - Trevenna - September 2013

'Trevenna is a pretty quaint cottage in a great location, it is far enough away from the town to be quiet and peaceful but also close enough to the shops for supplies etc. The facilities of the cottage were all we needed and more, the kitchen was well kitted out and the cottage was furnished beautifully throughout. The surrounding area has an endless possibility of walks with woodlands nearby and the South West coastal path just a ten minute drive away. We would happily return to Trevenna and will be recommending to our friends and family.'

William F - Trevenna - August 2013

'We had a lovely stay at Trevenna, the hamlet is a world away from the hustle and bustle of every day life... Just what we needed! The surrounding area is so nice too. We would highly recommend these cottages to any one visiting the area.'

Brad F - Trevenna - August 2013

'We had a lovely time at Trevenna Cottage and already looking forward to returning. Ian was an amazing host and helped us so much with local recommendations and contacts for our stay. It was set in the most beautiful of landscapes and the perfect escape from our busy city life. The cottage was beautifully kept and had everything you'll need. Its the perfect spot if you want an escape but not too far from Looe if you want a nice walk around the fishing village. There's lots to do from cliff jumping in Whitsand bay, to fishing in Looe, or simply relax and do absolutely nothing and enjoy the cottage. I would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be back.'
