Our journey to Cornwall

Love At First Sight

Since opening our accommodation to guests in 2012 we have been updating, refurbishing and changing the offering of our two holiday let in West Cornwall for The Barn and The Cottage.

The peacefulness of this setting by the Wheal Grey Lake and its closeness to the spectacular coastline with its glorious beaches, hidden coves and wonderful amenities make it a wonderful place to live and visit.

Wheal Grey Lake

The lake offers beautiful views and an ideal place to relax by after a day out.

A few changes since we arrived

We have been fortunate to welcome wonderful guests from all over the world, many of whom have returned again and again.

A few changes since we arrived

Perfect Location

Tresowes is located within a World Heritage Site due to its history of mining for tin, copper and china clay as well as its outstanding beauty. The hamlet itself is very quiet with only 48 dwellings, each set apart, providing privacy.

We are very conveniently located to visit such attractions as Porthleven, St Michael's Mount, Marazion, St Ives, Penzance, The Lizard, Lands End, Minack Theatre, Poldark Mine, numerous Gardens, Beaches and the Coastal Path.

We are happy to make recommendations for places to eat and visit. Equally, if its a barbecue you want, we can recommend local markets to purchase fresh produce.

We love our guests

Most of our guests comment on how they enjoy relaxing in the garden for breakfast and again in the evening with a drink after a day of surfing, swimming, fishing, gallery viewing and sightseeing.

The Barn

Tranquility & Comfort

We had a wonderful week in the Barn. The hosts were super friendly and on hand if we had any questions or looking for recommendations. Superbly located so you could walk to Praa Sands or relax in the garden...

A very nice cottage, a complete kitchen, a beautifully modern shower, a very good bed and a fantastic garden with many seating possibilities. What more could you possibly want on your holiday?

The Cottage

Fabulous Cottage

We chose Tresowes because it is ideally located to enjoy the best that Cornwall has to offer, all within very easy reach. We weren't disappointed! Everything about it was fantastic and of all the places we've stayed in Cornwall, Tresowes was by far the best. We'll definitely be back.
