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.

Half term at Tynedale Cottage

5 of 5
We were welcomed with tea and chocolate cake by Liz which was lovely after such a long journey. The house is lovely and perfect for a family like ours. (Myself , partner daughter, husband and 2 children and of course 2 dogs). My partner and I are regular visitors to the village so it was great to be able to stay somewhere we could share "St Teath" with my family. The house was very well equipped, and the beds comfortable - the rooms were all more than adequately furnished and, although the décor was a little tired this is to be expected when letting out to families with dogs. A perfect base for North Cornwall and its attractions. Would definitely stay again - loved it!.

Outstanding !

5 of 5
Had the most perfect romantic getaway for valentines with my partner. The cottage was secluded and in the middle of no where which seemed to make it all the more cosier. Decor was lovely, very clean and fully equipped. The closest town is padstow there wasn't much there other than the historic port which was very popular. We drove into Newquay which took around 30minutes but was a lovely day out as the weather was lovely for the time of year. Closest supermarket is Tesco which has everything you will need. We didn't go out to eat as we enjoyed cooking in the fully fitted kitchen. Defiantly will be back, may even bring the children as the cottage would also be perfect for a small family.

We stayed for three days with our dog during our half term break and had a thoroughly lovely time-this really is a special place, made to feel very welcome, nothing too much trouble. Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.
