The owner Dolly who unfortunately we didn't meet as she was attending a wedding in Wales, did ring us en route and explained everything we needed to know, The welcome pack left by Dolly was a lovely touch and just what we needed after a long journey, Thanks. The area is quiet and relaxing and it is a great place to come back to after a long day visiting other areas of Cornwall, The location of the dairy at Trevadlock is just off the A30 and from there you can get to most places quite easily, and nearby is a petrol station including a 'Spar' shop and just behind that is a 'Subway' if you are feeling 'peckish'. You can walk around the property which is surrounded by trees and fields, and you can even walk to the nearby river which is a couple of fields away. There is plenty of hot water and towels and we were very comfortable and felt very much 'at home' in the dairy, and the beds were very comfortable too! We would definitely return to the dairy at Trevadlock when next in Cornwall.

Garden is huge and perfect for family games, with a lovely BBQ area too. Large communal areas and comfy bedrooms. Highly recommend.
