Learn how the Cornish do it from the comfort of a holiday rental home or holiday cottage in Trethurgy, Cornwall

Trethurgy is a rural area situated close to the Eden Project near St Austell in Mid Cornwall. Excavations of Trethurgy Round in the 1970's marked a vital milestone in Cornish archaeology with the discovery of a small-enclosed settlement dating from the latter part of the Iron Age to early Post Roman times. These excavations revealed that the Cornish chose to rebuff the Roman way of life and develop their own style.

Places to stay in Trethurgy, Cornwall

Trethurgy is now a popular tourist destination for holidaymakers looking for a quiet spot in typical Cornwall, yet somewhere within easy reach of the major tourist attractions especially the Eden Project and its biomes. This location has a number of cottages that are ideal for those who prefer self-catering accommodation for their holidays.

This type of accommodation allows you more freedom to explore Cornwall without the usual mealtime restrictions imposed by hotels and bed and breakfast (b&b) establishments and is far more comfortable than camping out in a tent. Holiday cottages in Trethurgy come in many shapes and forms, such as chapel conversions, barn conversions, old miners cottages and country cottages but whatever you choose will be furnished and equipped to very high standards.

A cottage in Trethurgy is only a couple of miles from the lovely sandy beaches of Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Par, Porthpean, Duporth, Polgaver and the harbour of Charlestown, which has a Shipwreck and Heritage Centre. Polkerris harbour is situated between Par and Fowey. It also has a sandy beach and Mevagissey is a traditional unspoilt working fishing village.

                                                                                                      We stayed here in April as a family of four (two adults and two kids, 5 and 7) and had a lovely time. The apartment has spectacular views over the town and sea and the kids loved the splash pool in the basement. My wife and I enjoyed the mini gym and sauna here too. The apartment is a 10min walk from the superb Towan beach and a slightly longer 20min walk from the world renowned surfers beach of Fistral (dissapointed by Rick steins restaurant here though - food distinctively average and served in cardboard boxes!! Not the kind of environmental policy I would expect in 2017). Both places have lovely, clean sandy beaches and excellent rock pools to explore when the tide is out. The town also benefits from an excellent independent cinema, the Lighthouse, which is a 5min walk from the apartment (very convenient). Sainsbury's is about 7mins walk. Equally convenient. There are some cool little restaurants worth checking out. We enjoyed pizza at the wet dog pizza cafe and a posher meal at Bush Pepper (great for vegetarians), all within short walks. There is also Ben and Jerrys ice cream cafe and a brilliant little smoothie / ice cream bar named Kooks all within a few minutes. The owner of this place is lovely and friendly and the homemade chai latte is to die for. I don't need to say much more about the apartment - it's lovely, modern very well appointed, fresh and light. The high powered telescope in the lounge was great fun too. The kids enjoyed waving at their daddy who was waving from Sainsbury's! For people with kids around 5 - 7 there are some nice paved walks along the coast which are good for micro scooters. We managed to coax ours out for a 3 - 4hr walk which took in some breathtaking scenery around the headland, with very little wingeing (ice-cream obviously helped) All in all a smashing apartment, excellent location and highly recommended PS cream tea on arrival highly appreciated too! Thanks Caroline!

The setting is very quiet and peaceful. While we were there the weather turned very cold but the wood burner kept the cottage very warm and cosy. The owners are very pleasant and on hand if you need them.
