“5 Star B&B in a tranquil setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

We were visiting the area to prepare the house of a recently deceased relative for sale and needed somewhere to stay. We found Trecarne House via an internet search and were delighted with our choice.

Trecarne House is in a pretty, rural setting on the edge of a small cluster of houses. Our room was light and airy and well equipped, with a sofa on which to relax after dinner at a local pub. The view from the french doors was across open countryside with the village of St Cleer to one side. We enjoyed two excellent night's sleep in the really comfortable bed, waking to the delightful sounds of the countryside.

Trish's home cooked breakfasts were exceptionally good with a wide range of options and certainly worth getting up for!

Throughout our short stay, Trish made us very welcome and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Thank you very much for your kind words.

It's often so peacful at Trecarne House, you can hear a pin drop, but it makes for a very good night's sleep in our snuggly beds.

Our Aga makes cooking breakfast such a pleasure, because I know the food will arrive at the
table on time & tasting freshly cooked & delicious. We are so lucky to have a good source of top quality local produce.

Come back soon,, we still have so much to talk about

We stayed 3 nights at Trecarne House last month. We were in Cornwall on business and it was a very stressful time for my partner and myself. Trish and Tom gave us such a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. It is a beautiful house with a lovely atmosphere and was just what we needed after a busy day house searching. Trish and Tom have good local knowledge and gave us lots of helpful advice. The breakfasts were excellent and it was no bother that we were both vegetarian. Our room was beautifully decorated and furnished and had a lovely comfortable bed. The gardens and grounds are really tranquil with superb views. I would recommend this B&B to friends and family. We returned home feeling like we were part of the family and we hope to visit again.

It's a privilege to serve our guests, because they make our business fun & so enjoyable & when we receive such glowing praise, it's makes us realise that our informal & friendly style makes our guests feel relaxed & completely at home. In fact 'part of the family'.

Our local knowledge is pretty comprehensive, so whatever our guests needs or problems we can almost always come up with a solution - we invariably know ' a man who can', or woman for that matter - in short nothing is too much trouble, so always be sure to ask, no matter how bizarre you may think your request is. We want to do our very best to ensure our guests leave Trecarne House, feeling they had outstanding service.

I had a wonderful weekend staying with Trish and Tom for a wedding nearby and they could not have been more welcoming. I felt like their adoptive daughter! The house and gardens are beautiful and when I decided to stay an extra night they were very accommodating. I will definitely be going back if I return to the area and would recommend this to my friends.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend staying in the self-contained apartment upstairs which had lovely skylights...

Thank you for reminding us that the gardens are a great feature at Trecarne House, with plenty of places to sit & soak up the sun.& enjoy the far reaching views over open countryside

The patio with the covered gazebo is great for those who like to eat alfresco or play a game of outdoor table tennis or get even more energetic and bounce on the trampoline.

We also have a great paddock where children can run and play amongst the wild flowers in complete safety -it's heaven on earth because it's so peaceful.

We spent four nights with Trish and Tom at Trecarne House. They did everything they could to make our stay pleasant and memorable. We immediately felt welcomed and special. The breakfast was superb and our rooms was beautifully decorated and had a lovely view of Cornwall´s countryside. We will most definitely come back to stay with Trish and Tom, since there is so much to see in this area and four days was not enough.

At Trecarne House our guests comfort, enjoyment & needs come first, so it's music to our ears when we receive such complimentary reviews that confirm we're on the right track.

Our desire is to offer a genuinely friendly, informal & welcoming environment where our guests can feel completely at home and relaxed.

We'd just like to say a big thank you to all our guests for making our business so enjoyable

Four in a bed reminded me of the time last May when we stayed in this establishment, I don't usually leave a review if I've nothing nice to say, but seeing all the positive reviews after the treatment we received sickens me slightly. Trish had a terrible attitude, maybe it's because we're scruffier than her usual clientèle, but as paying customers, paying the same price as everybody else, we expected to be treated the same as the other guests despite not appearing for breakfast in designer label gear.

The snootiness of the woman knew no bounds, which was particularly misplaced as the state of the bathroom was pure filth, with tiles coming away from the wall and the plughole of the shower was blocked with what looked like suspiciously curly hairs. When my partner lifted the toilet seat to pee, it looked like it hadn't seen a sniff of bleach for a good few months.

The room itself was comfortable enough, but the attitude of the host really let the place down.

I'd certainly not recommend it to friends.

From the moment we arrived Trish could not have been more welcoming or attentive to our needs, it was more like being greeted as old friends than paying guests. The location was perfect for us and we were able to explore the local area and visit friends in St Cleer. Our room was comfortable and spacious with great views across the valley and to the edge of Bodmin Moor. Breakfasts were brilliant, leisurely affairs which set us up for the day. The only downside to our stay was having to leave to re-join the rat race!

Thank you for reminding us what a perfect location Bodmin Moor is for exploring Cornwall, anywhere in Cornwall can be accessed so easily from this central base at Trecarne House.

Also right on our doorstep there are many interesting things to see and do, like the historic Cheesewring & Hurlers, Golitho Falls & the stunning Siblyback reservoir where there are many different water sports like sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding & tasty locally produced food at the cafe.

Mind you after a leisurely & generous home cooked breakfast from the Aga, fitting more food in before dinner might be a challenge !!

On arriving at Trecarne House we received a wonderfully warm welcome from Trish that set the tone for our stay. We immediately felt we had joined a house party where the atmosphere was friendly and convivial. The light and airy rooms with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside were a delight. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and comfortable and children were able to enjoy the house and gardens alongside the adults. Trish's natural charm and cheerful demeanour ensured we immediately relaxed and felt at home. It is rare to find a place to stay that nurtures both the body and soul but our short stay at Trecarne House succeeded in both counts with its beautiful location and the attentive kindness of an exceptional host.
