Excellent property and amendities. Full of character.

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for mid-October to have a family reunion for 10 of us. We had an excellent long weekend! The property is well maintained and full of character. There are sufficient number of rooms so you do not have to be on top of each other all the time.

The kitchen was well-stocked with equipment and we easily catered at meal times. There is plenty to do with a number of TV's, DVD's, books and board games all available at the property, but in truth we rarely left the large table in the kitchen which was a great place to congregate, eat, drink and talk.

Outside the hot tub was good fun and worked effectively. The fishing lake kept some of our party entertained at times with the added bonus of catching some decent fish!

The owners were nice people who kept a respectful distance but on hand if help was needed.

All in all a lovely property which we would happily rent again or recommend to others.

Excellent facilities and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was superb! It had everything you could possibly need for 12 people! The hot tub was the perfect temperature upon arrival. Callington was literally a 2 minute drive away so the location was great. Dartmoor national park is 30 minute drive away and definitely worth a visit. There are some great pubs nearby with amazing food. The free gym and spa passes were such a bonus! The gym is amazing and the spa was just what we all needed! The owner Neville made us feel very welcome upon arrival.

One of the best weekends away we've experienced. Thank you to the owners! We'd definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

we came here for a weekend break to celebrate my parents silver wedding anniversary & we couldn't have asked for more! Wonderful spacious cottage with a great kitchen dining room. We really enjoyed the fishing.

The China Fleet club was sooo good. Owners said that they had a new spa & we should visit. we are glad we did. What a place.

This area of SE Cornwall is the perfect spot for a relaxing brake. Peaceful, with beautiful surroundings and views, it is still very easy to get around. With good A roads close by, you can get to the beach in 20 minutes, pubs in 5 and the top sites such as Heligan, Eden project and even Lands End are all within reach.

Locally there is a good fun farm for children, the Donkey Sanctuary in Gunnislake, Cotehele House and the delights of the River Tamar, where you can go for canoe trips or just hire a boat for the afternoon.

Plymouth with its cinemas, wonderful aquarium and shops is also less then 30 minutes away.

The addition of China Fleet club memberships (pools, gym, squash, tennis, exercise classes & golf - extra charge for golf) gives further wet weather options.

Golf: For just £40 per person, guests at Trehill cottages can enjoy free golf at the beautiful championship course at the China Fleet club, just a short drive away. The lovely 18 hole, par 72 golf course offers breathtaking views over the River Tamar and great practice facilities which include a 22 bay floodlit driving range, 3 holes practice facility and a putting green you will be spoilt for choice.

Trehill cottages is also just 2 miles from the renowned Nicklaus & Kernow courses at St Mellion.

The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at St Mellion - Designed by the man himself. Brought back to all its former glory in 2007/08 with an extensive refurbishment programme, the Nicklaus course is now firmly in any one's list of top UK courses. The Nicklaus Course provides has 7000 yards of outstanding golf.

The Kernow Course at St Mellion - Formerly known as the Old Course, it was completely redeveloped in 2008. 9 of the old holes were extended and improved with 9 brand new holes also being added. The Kernow was always the most popular with members because and with the new holes and lay outs is going to provide the sort of course that anyone would be happy to play again and again.
