Tresowes Green Cottage was built in the early 1800's and has been modernised to provide high quality accommodation within tranquil grounds of 1.25 acres bordering onto Wheal Grey Lake. There are outdoor barbecue and dining areas and a heated garden room overlooking the lake; it is indeed a quiet haven. There are supermarkets in nearby Helston and good restaurants at Praa Sands and in Porthleven both within 5 to 7 mins by car. Facilities include cooker, fridge, TV, WiFi, Ipod station with CD player and radio and central heating.
From the moment we first saw Tresowes Green Cottage we knew we had found a gem and it was a place we wanted to both live and to share with others. The peacefulness of this setting by the Wheal Grey Lake and its closeness to the spectacular coastline with its glorious beaches, hidden coves and wonderful amenities make it a wonderful place to live and visit.
Since opening our accommodation to guests in 2012, by offering two holiday lets in Cornwall, The Barn and The Cottage, which makes self catering holidays unique, we have been fortunate to welcome wonderful guests from all over the world, many of whom have returned and regard Tresowes Green as their second home.
Tresowes is located within a World Heritage Site due to its history of mining for tin, copper and china clay as well as its outstanding beauty. The hamlet itself is very quiet with only 48 dwellings, each set apart, providing privacy. There are numerous award winning restaurants within easy distance so we would recommend guests have a car to maximise their enjoyment.
We are very conveniently located to visit such attractions as Porthleven, St Michael's Mount, Marazion, St Ives, Penzance, The Lizard, Lands End, Minack Theatre, Poldark Mine, numerous Gardens, Beaches and the Coastal Path.

Our family of five really enjoyed our stay at Tresowes Green cottage. We were warmly welcomed and showed around. The cottage was immaculately clean and clearly well maintained by the owners. Very spacious in and outside. Its impressive how beautiful and serene the place is, surrounded by a green garden and a lake. Convenient location ( but not suitable for outdoor runners like me). Helpful information was available what nearby activities and restaurants there are. Highly recommending the cottage to anyone wanting to either explore Cornwall or simply enjoy some quiet time.
The property was absolutely brilliant !!! Johnny & Leslie were fantastic, after a slight mishap with our dog, they could not have been more understanding !! Their kindness & thoughtfulness were second to none , would highly recommend this property !!!!!! A VERY BIG THANK-YOU !!
Wir verbrachten mit unserer 12 jährigen Tochter 2 Wochen im Sommer im Tresowes Green Cottage in der grösseren Wohnung.
Das 200 Jahre alte Cottage ist urgemütlich und trotzdem perfekt ausgestattet mit allen Errungenschaften der modernen Medien. Es gibt einen DVD Spieler mit DVDs, eine Wii mit Spielen etc, WLan etc. Die Gastgeber wissen, dass auch mal ein Regentag überbrückt werden muss 😉.
Eigentlich ist aber auch das Aussengelände umwerfend und wir haben jeden regenfreien Moment genutzt um draussen zu frühstücken, zu grillen oder auf der grossen Spielwiese Badminton oder Fussball zu spielen.
Der Garten ist wunderschön im englischen Stil angelegt und liegt an einem See (baden nicht möglich).
Die 2 Ferienwohnungen liegen voneinander entfernt mit intimen eigenen Terrassen.
Die Gastgeber Leslie und Johnnie wohnen auf dem Gelände und stehen einem stets mit Rat und Tat zur Seite bei Bedarf.
Das Cottage liegt einsam im Grünen. Bis nach Praa Sands zum Strand sind es ca 2km. Also, ohne Auto ist nichts zu machen. Trotzdem sind viele tolle Ecken Cornwalls wie die Lizard Halbinsel oder die Penwith Halbinsel in relativ kurzer Zeit erreichbar. Wir sind überwiegend den Coastal Footpath gewandert im Urlaub.
Wir würden das Tresowes Green Cottage jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Es eignet sich sowohl für Erwachsene, als auch für Familien. Auch Hunde sind übrigens willkommen.
Ein wunderschönes altes Haus, was sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet ist ;gelegen in einem zauberhaften Garten - die Gastgeber herzlich und hilfsbereit.
