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.

Lovely Cornwall in comfortable cottage

5 of 5
The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and perfectly suited for a family holiday with dogs. Liz is very welcoming but leaves you alone to do your own thing. St Teath is perfectly located for reaching places such as Padstow, Rock, the Eden Project, Camel Trail and Tintagel. Would definitely book again - thank you Liz!

A well equipped family house in a perfect location

5 of 5
This was our second extended family holiday at Atlantic House. The location next to the beach is ideal for our small grandchildren. Having 2 lounges is ideal for younger and older family members. The house is comfortable and furnished beautifully. The warm outside shower is perfect for the young ones returning from the beach. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the cleaners did an excellent job in the middle of our stay. We had a couple of maintenance issues on both of our stays. Last year the loft bathroom toilet flush was not working properly, the washing machine broke down and had to be replaced, and the septic tank had to be emptied during our stay...not a pleasant experience! This year there were continuing problems with the downstairs toilet flush, which despite a visit from the plumber remained an issue throughout our stay. However, these issues would not deter us from returning to Atlantic House. Overall a lovely holiday was had by all.
