The bedrooms were spacious, the bathrooms sparkly clean and newly fitted. The kitchen was modern with everything you needed. The house was warm and cosy, and we all enjoyed a very very comfortable stay, a real home from home. We hope that we will be able to revisit in the future.

We were not disappointed!!! David and Dolly the owners were more than helpful, really friendly and Trevadlock Manor is something quite special. A real gem! The builders were in next door whilst we were there, upgrading some of the other cottages, but this was not an inconvenience. They look to be doing a really good job on what is a great property. We loved the thought that had been put into providing a really safe dog exercise area and also the opportunity to explore down through the fields to the river. If you want to be right by the beach this clearly is not the property for you, but if you have a car and are prepared to drive to discover Cornwall's gems like Trebarwith Strand (check the tides first) and Daymer Bay it is ideal. There are some good pubs nearby too. We loved the Rising Sun at Alturnun which is a 10 minute drive away. We like staying in new places when we go away, but I have no doubt we will be back at Trevadlock. I'd like to say "Don't book it ~ leave it free for us" but I can't !!!! Thanks for a great stay. 5 stars all round.

This was a break to get away from hospital appointments and chemotherapy for hubby and it really helped. Would thoroughly recommend
