What a gorgeous cottage, beautifully equipped and maintained and just perfect for our 3-generation family holiday. Be aware that some reversing on a single track road may be necessary, as although traffic is rare, we did meet a tractor and trailer one day!
Downstairs is very comfortable and although the heating is very efficient, we appreciated the logs in the wood burner on a couple of misty and damp evenings. The kitchen was great to work in and it was a pleasure to be able to cook proper meals, before eating them sat round the large dining table. We soon felt completely 'at home' and relaxed in style; even the garden got some use, although it wasn't the best week for sunshine. Everyone slept really well in the comfortable beds and the en-suite and family bathroom always had piping hot water.
Communication with Ian was excellent, right from the initial booking; he is a most courteous host. The personal welcome note - with tea and shortbread - was a lovely addition, and all the info you need - whether on equipment or places to visit, is at hand.
We all agreed we would have loved to have stayed longer than our 4 nights - it's definitely calling us back - and there are so many other places for us to visit nearby.
Spent a lovely 5 nights at Trengrove Cottage. The cottage is well located, on the side of a valley at the end of a very quiet road/track with only a couple of other houses in sight. Only 20 min drive to Looe, Polperro or Fowey.
The cottage itself is tastefully decorated, all the cooking utensils you could wish for, comfortable sofas and a wood burner. Very snug! If needed, there's a decent wifi, Netflix and in each bedroom a TV (with inbuilt DVD). Despite all this one of our children stated that being in the top bunk was their holiday highlight.
We hadn't quite appreciated that Trevenna is attached to the back of the cottage. With thick stone walls there was no noticeable noise and it would work well if you wanted to holiday with the in-laws.
Ian was an excellent remote host. Providing all the information we needed, quickly answering any queries and genuinely wanting to ensure we were happy. We'd thoroughly recommend a stay in Trengrove
Trengrove Cottage is a wonderful location for a relaxed getaway. Ian is a great host and really made us feel welcome. The cottage was spotless, and it was the perfect setting for our family's Christmas. The cottage is not far from the coast (20 minute drive) and we were able to enjoy Looe. We had a great hike along the coast. We were also able to have a nice walk into Looe with a bus back to Pelynt and walked back to the cottage from there. If you are looking for a quite place to have a wonderful vacation, this is it.
Many thanks Ian for the great vacation we spent in your house. Trengrove is a lovely place and the location is fantastic. The house is very clean and decorated so nice in all details. The equipment is great (e.g. there is also a smoothie blender so that we enjoyed our daily smoothies which we know from home) and the tips from Ian (there was also a detailed personal guide book) were so helpful to explore all the fantastic spots in the near surrounding. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and love to come back again one day.
Beautiful setting, lovely cottage set in a wonderful rural location.
With so much information to hand (provided by the owner) it makes your holiday very easy.
We have just returned from a lovely long weekend at Trengrove Cottage near Duloe. The cottage is very pretty and tastefully appointed to a very high standard throughout. Everything worked properly. Spotless bathrooms, constant hot water and a kitchen that delivered everything we needed. The log burner created a wonderfully cosy atmosphere in which to relax after spectacular coastal walks, (notably the walk from Lantic Bay to Fowey.) Attention to detail and a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude from the owner Ian and brother Derek, sets the standard for a truly memorable holiday experience.
