Trenowan
Ranked #2 of 24 Tintagel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2011

This is an absolutely amazing B&B and the hosts, Vivienne and Iain, were very welcoming. I will be recommending it to everyone and looking forward to my next trip back. We stayed in the yellow room (or should I say, suite) which was absolutely huge - amazing views across fields to the sea, the biggest, comfiest bed I've ever slept in (and being 6ft3, it means a lot), huge dressing room through to a lovely en suite. Attention to detail was evident everywhere, from the wedgewood china to the locally sourced soaps. I didn't think it could get any better but breakfast surpassed my expectations. Cereals, fruit salad and a full cooked breakfast with high quality, delicious ingredients. Only a 10 minute walk down to the beach, or a 15 minute walk to Tintagel, this is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, quiet holiday.

Viv and Iain are so friendly and helpful. Our room *(Gold Room ) was so large and the bed so comfy with a lovely view across the fields to the sea. Fresh milk in the room with the tea and coffee was one of the little extras that make this place so nice. We don't normally have cooked breakfasts, but theirs was too good to miss. We recommend this B&B and would even drive off our route to stay here again when in Cornwall.

We decided to get away from all the fuss and watch the Royal Wedding in peace, and it was peace indeed that we found. We stayed in the Gold room which has a glorious sea view and a giant private bathroom just down the hall. We just went padding down the hallway in the softest of bathrobes and never ran into anyone. You have no idea how glad we were we chose Trenowan. Thank you for the peace, for Cornwall and especially for the jam and clotted cream scones on arrival.

We stayed here for two nights for a short break in Cornwall. We stayed in the blue room which has lovely sea views and is very spacious with a separate dressing room which leads through to the bathroom. The room had a huge king size bed, very comfortable. The room was very clean and had tea/coffee making facilities and bottled water. There was a large choice at breakfast of fruit, cereals, yoghurt, toast and full English which filled us up enough to skip lunch. The owner Vivienne has very good knowledge of the local area and gave us lots of ideas on places to go. The location is ideal, only around 15 mins walk to Tintagel and 10 mins walk from the restaurant and pub at Trebarwith Strand so it is walking distance to places to eat in the evening whilst being tranquil and quiet.
I imagine a similar standard of room in a hotel would be much much more expensive so it is very good value for money. We wished we stayed for longer because there is so much to do in the area so we may well be back soon.

hello, i am a field service engineer world wide, which takes me across all corners of the
world,encountering different cultures & cuisines, staying in various hotels with 2-5 star
ratings, but never have i been made to feel more welcome in my 35 years of travel than i did
staying with vivienne & iain , this couple seem to have their own genuine brand of welcome
which is quite unique, vivienne & iain are the most genuine,kind hearted human beings i
have had the pleasure of meeting, i as a rule do not like B&B'S, but after staying at trenowan
it has redefined my understanding of the word B&B, vivenne & iain are extremely professional individuals with very unique set of values,the other outstanding quality is that they are
highly customer focused, they just can't do enough for the staying guest, i feel very
privileged to share their lovely home for a brief time, i have vowed to my self that when
ever i am working in this area, i will make sure that i am booked in this B&B, by the way
i stayed in the blue room , which for £40/ night you get most comfortable bed,free wi fi,
well equipped bathroom,comfortable chairs, massive wardrobe, plenty of power points,
stunning sea views, curtains that screen out light well, bedroom decor & level of equip-
ment is of very high standard, puts expensive hotels to shame if you make comparison,
this B&B i highly recommend, the detials of this B&B will be going on to our company
data base for future ref & use for other company colleagues,i would like to wish vivienne
& iain a prosperous future,

Room Tip: i stayed in blue room, found it to be very quiet .

On arrival we were greeted by a big smile and cream teas. We were shown to our room (blue room) in the beautiful, well kept b&b . The room is very large and the bed extremely comfortable. The room boasts amazing views. There is a heated towell rail and luxurious dressing gowns so you can fully relax and pamper yourself. We stayed for 3 nights and felt relaxed and at ease for the entire time. This was also down to Vivienne and Iain who run a great operation. They went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our break and are genuinely nice people who offered lots of useful info about the local area. We tucked into a fantastic continental/full english breakfast every morning which set us up for the day. We particularily liked the fact that they use local produce....eg..jams and spreads at breakfast, home grown tomatoes, fresh flowers from the garden and the toiletries were from the local herbery. The b&b is in a great location with both trebarwith strand and tintagel accessible by cliff walk. I can't recomend the trenowan enough and this is the only place we will consider staying at on our next visit to tintagel. Mike and Kate

My other half and I stayed with hosts Viv and Ian at Tenowan for a long weekend and were made to feel at home upon arrival. We arived late on Friday night having travelled nearly 5 hours and upon arrival we were met with smiles and a very warm reception.
We stayed in the Blue room which is absolutely lovely, it is spacious with a lovely bright ensuite modern bathroom and a walk in dressing room with a HUGE wardrobe and dresser much to the approval of my other half - she thought it was fantastic!!
For breakfast there was a nice selection of cereals, yoghurts, fruit and a full english - of course I chose the full english - every morning no less!
Waking up on Saturday morning we were spoiled with the most fantastic view. The view from our large window stretched out to sea which is what Cornwall is all about. And that evening we were spoiled for a second time as the sun set below the skyline of the sea - amazing!!!
The location of Trenowan is ideal, there are some great walks a stones throw from the B&B and a couple of really good local pubs within walking distance. The B&B is literally just a quick walk from the coastal path and beach which was perfect first thing in the morning on a lazy Sunday!
For close places to visit, we managed to cram in quite a lot but went at our own pace. We visited the Lost Gardens Of Helegan which I would recommend to anyone. Viv recommended lots of places to go, she had maps and guides and leaflets galore and told us about plenty of the local sites which was great as we went quite unprepared!
All in all, we had a fantastic weekend and I would recommend to anyone who wants a warm, well looked after weekend. We're even going back in December near Christmas time!
Enjoy.
