About Annabel Lewis

This is a family run holiday let, between a mother and two daughters.

Annabel Lewis purchased this house in 1940

Why Annabel Lewis chose North Cornwall

Our Great Grandmother bought it in 1940's (one of the first houses in Trevone) when she returned home from India on the P&O Cruiser Nellore. She settled here for a number of years before passing it on to her daughter who in turn passed it on to her daughter, our mother who continues to run it with us.

What makes this house unique

Having been the destination for the vast majority of our summer holidays we love introducing our children to the excitement and pleasures that Nellore, Trevone and Cornwall have to offer. Come rain or shine, there is never a shortage of things to do. We have had visitors returning to us for up to 40 years who like us continue to return year after year many now with their grandchildren.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a great time, the boys made beach friends and enjoyed rock climbing, crabbing and stream damming, mum and dad exhausted by early morning - granny and grandpa rested and enjoyed 'Nellore'. Was a wonderful base - spacious and comfortable and within sight and sound of the sea. What more could we ask?

4 generations stay perfection

  • 5 of 5

Nellore fitted the bill perfectly for our family holiday, and our ages ranged from 2-84!

A wonderful home from home, and we hope to stay again soon, when we're next over from New Zealand :)

Wonderful Xmas stay at "Nellore" with sea views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five loved everything about the property. Nellore was characterful, clean, well-maintained, with a lovely homely and individual feel - no bland makeover! Comfortable and spacious, we could have taken three extra people as it slept and catered for eight.

Layout, facilities and location (complete with sea view) was just as the listing described. Even in winter it was wonderful to be a few steps from beautiful Trevone beach, especially as the weather was mild - or when it wasn't, to sit in the window seat of the warm sitting room watching surfers in the distance! We were spoilt for choice with all the stunning walks from our doorstep. And with a farm shop in walking distance and Padstow with its restaurants overlooking a Christmas lit harbour just a few minutes drive, what more could we want?

The owner provided excellent customer service from start to finish and I would certainly recommend the property to friends and relatives.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely modernised cottage right opposite Trevone Bay beach. Perfect for a family holiday. We last stayed at Nellore about 20 years ago, and have now just had a delightful week with the newest generation. Thank you so much! We look forward to our return in 2018.

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space and well located, steps from the beach and a great cafe/bar and local shop. The furnishings have seen younger days and might be the only slight negative. Padstow was fun and full of people, shops and restaurants. We had dinner at Stein's famous fish restaurant and thought our meal at the local cafe on the Thursday evening was more memorable and certainly better value! The coastal walks were breathtaking and can't wait to come back. In fact we have booked to come again in September.

The cottage is located in the picturesque village of Trevone Bay. Trevone is a small village, full of character and with so much in the village to explore, most holiday makers spend much of their time here. Trevone’s sandy bay is full of character with rock pools and streams for the children to play in, while the adults find one of the many cosy sunny corners to relax in. The lifeguarded bay provides the perfect place to take a dip in the sea or to try your hand at surfing (hire available locally). Whereas Trevone’s rocky beach is a vast expanse of rocks, gullies, caves and rock pools to explore, perfect for crabbing, fishing with nets, beachcombing and hunting for shells. The rocky beach has its own natural swimming pool, which is revealed as the tide goes out. In addition to the beaches Trevone has many varied walks. The coastal path to the South West is a flat easy footpath which gently winds along the coast to Harlyn Bay. The coastal path to the North East takes you past Trevone’s famous blowhole, along the stunning rugged coastline to Padstow. Trevone has a farm shop, a church, a pub, a beach café/hire, and a surf shop.


Just outside the village (2 miles away) there is the famous harbour town of Padstow, with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops.

Padstow is the home of Rick Stein’s famous sea food restaurant, bistro, fish and chip shop, delicatessen and cookware shop.

Padstow is the perfect place to enjoy an icecream or a Cornish pasty and watch the boats come in and out.

Or why not hire a bike and cycle along the Camel trail – a scenic flat cycle trail along the estuary, or enjoy a visit to the National Trust Property of Pencarrow, or take the ferry over to Rock and try your hand at windsurfing or sailing.

Padstow also offers boat rides to see puffins, fishing trips or for the more adventurous speed boat trips around the estuary.

For Golfers Cornwall has some of the most picturesque courses in the UK, with Trevose Golf Club just a few miles away.


Trevone is also a great base for visiting the cathedral town of Truro (14 miles away), which has excellent shopping, museums and restaurants.

Other local attractions include the world famous Eden Project (A living theatre of plants and people - 22 miles away) and The Lost Gardens of Helligan. Similarly children will have plenty to do as there are many local activity centres and theme parks in Cornwall, with Cornwall’s Crealy Adventure Park just 5 miles away. For more activities, Newquay (14 miles away) has an aquarium, zoo, Dairyland, boating lake, an adventure centre offering activities such as zip wire, abseiling, coasteering, and jet ski tours. Cornwall has a wide variety of National Trust properties, gardens, museums, and other places of interest.
