About the area
Situated in a tranquil rural setting with stunning views over the Camel Valley and surrounding countryside, you can really get away from it all here at Trenarlett and truly relax. We really have the best of both worlds, set in such a beautiful and quiet spot, and with that 'off the beaten track' feel, yet we are very easy to get to, being less than 4 miles from both the A30 and A39, and are well placed for visiting all that Cornwall has to offer. Daisy's Cottage is just a short distance away up the valley in a similar peaceful farm hamlet setting.
The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on the doorstep for lovely walks, as are miles of quiet lanes and countryside, and we have three pretty villages (St Tudy, Blisland and St Breward) all within 2 miles, each with great local pubs and village shops for your day to day needs. Walking and salmon & trout fishing may be available on our banks by arrangement in season (you will need a rod license) and there is an excellent riding stables nearby with hacking straight out onto the Moor for both beginners and experienced rides.
For flat but scenic walking and cycling you could try the Camel Trail, accessed just at the bottom of our land, from where you can reach Padstow if you’re feeling energetic and even try Rick Stein’s fish and chips as you’ll have worked them off! In fact, why not drop in at the award winning Camel Valley Vineyard on the way back for some liquid refreshment!!
Nearby, Pencarrow House and National Trust estate Llanhydrock are two of many properties and gardens in the region open to the public. You can visit the museum or take in the Courthouse experience in Bodmin - maybe get sent down to do some time in the old Jail, or stick to the right side of the tracks and take a ride on the old steam railway!
If you fancy a knock at Doc Martin’s door then Port Isaac is just 20 minutes’ drive away, as are Tintagel and Boscastle, great surfing at Trebarwith and Polzeath or just a walk along the huge beach at Daymer Bay. Lively Wadebridge, just 15 minutes away, is the local town, with Padstow and Newquay just a little further and Bude, Eden, Helligan, Mevagissey, Looe, Lands End, St Ives, The Lizard or anywhere you think of really, all an easy day trip from here.
There are many more active attractions available for families and adults alike, such as adventure parks with rides and animals, 10-pin bowling, Go-Karting, Cinema, surfing, body-boarding or adrenalin junkies can try coasteering or even death drops into an old quarry!
There is something for everyone, all year round and whatever the weather, so no matter if you have been hooked long ago and are already a regular visitor to Cornwall, or if you're a first timer, you are sure to return time and again to this wonderful county and we really do make the perfect base from which to explore.
