  • "Very friendly and helpful owners."

    A week was not long enough!

    Reviewed by CaroleSep 2020

  • "Trelawney is a very spacious bungalow which is well located near the great beaches and walks of far West Cornwall."

    The enclosed rear lawn is large and good for children and pets. The Logan Inn nearby is excellent for food and service and the little shop in Sennen opens early and sells most things including fresh croissants and local vegetables. A wayside veg stall 500 metres away in Polgigga sells fresh eggs and other local.

  • "The bungalow was very big and in a lovely, quiet location."

    It was fully equipped too. The owners live next door and we're very friendly and accommodating, a beautiful homemade Victoria sandwich cake was a lovely touch, thank you! The back garden was perfect for the dogs as it's fully enclosed. One slight issue, although not for us, is the broadband isn't very strong and we had to use our 4G, it's to be expected for the location but I thought I'd mention it for those that need to work whilst on holiday.

  • "The owners of our accommodation were extremely welcoming and any questions we had through the week were answered immediately."

    The couple left us lots of information on the area covering a variety of things to do and places of interest, including bus information. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and we realised on arrival all our expectations were met and definitely exceeded by a mile. Wonderful holiday thankyou.

  • "Absolutely lovely bungalow."

    .. everything there that you need . The bungalow itself is surprisingly spacious and plenty of room for everyone. Lovely sized garden for children to play in. Fanatic situation near to Porthcurno, Lands End and Sennen. Perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. Lovely owners - we’d definitely recommend to everyone.

  • "We have been to Trelawney before, and it is ideal for us and our two little dogs."

    The garden is actually genuinely dog-proof, which makes a huge difference to our enjoyment of our holiday. So many other properties claim their gardens are dog-proof and they prove not to be. Trelawney is ideally located for "end of England" and is comfortable and well appointed. The owners are friendly without being intrusive, and to be greeted by a wonderful Victoria sponge was a much appreciated bonus. The booking procedure was straightforward which was really good news. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and had a lovely holiday. It is really good that so many of the Great Gardens of Cornwall now admit dogs and we all very much enjoyed going round Trengwainton, Tremenheere, Trewidden and Bonothyon. Great pubs in the area too, and we particularly liked the St Buryan Inn (and the village shop there is fantastic) and The First and Last.

  • "Had a lovely stay Trelawney."

    Really well placed for everywhere to visit , almost everything you may wish to see is within a 30 minute drive or even less. The bungalow is very clean and spacious and comfortalbe. Everything inside the bungalow you need for a peaceful rest and a large garden in which to relax in the evening . Recommend anyone going there to do a decent shop before you get there. There are a couple of good shops but a bit more pricey and not the selection you may want which is understandable on this out of the way headland. So many great beaches and little coves to discover , wonderful walks along miles of cliffs , big open skies and wild countryside. Great place for the lovers of fresh air and outdoors.

  • "We were delighted to find that 'Trelawney' was every bit as light & spacious as it appeared on the internet."

    The kitchen was well equipped & the beds were very comfortable. The owners, who live next door, were very friendly & helpful. They had left a delicious cake to greet us, & very generously supplied us with home grown tomatoes & beetroot. We had a lovely week, & would be very happy to return to Trelawney' should we need a 3 bed holiday home again..

  • "Holiday cottage location great, but cottage furniture extremely worn, near broken, all beds extremely uncomfortable, settee & lounge chairs extremely dated & uncomfortable, one settee broken, both toilet seats loose/near broken, building rubbish outside bayhroom window in garden (fenced off but visible) kitchen nice best room of bungalow!"

    Though in need of 'deep clean' as grease on oven and rear of surface counters. Hosts live next door over familiar on arrival (lady polite left homemade cake but her husband let himself him & upset our dogs barking then walked himself around cottage even turning off bedroom lamp?! Bizzare. Worst nights sleep we all had all week never experienced that before in a holiday rental. Felt more like we were visiting very elderly relatives not a holiday rental in 2018. Overall we were all disappointed with standard and cleanliness of living accomadtion. Thank goodness beautiful part of country to enjoy days out. Feel Sykes rep needs to visit & stay not up to usual standards.

The property

Just one mile inland from Porthcurno in the little hamlet of Trethewey is Trelawney, a large detached bungalow with a real home from home feeling.

All on the ground floor, the spacious living accommodation features a sitting room with electric fire, glazed doors overlooking the garden and a roomy kitchen and dining area.

There are three bedrooms – a double with TV/DVD and en suite shower room and two twin rooms, both with TV.

Outside, the sheltered front garden is filled with mature trees, and to the rear, an enclosed lawn is the ideal spot for children to play safely.

The small village of Porthcurno, once the centre of world telecommunication, is now better known for its gorgeous, soft, white sand beach.

Washed by a turquoise green sea and sheltered by high cliffs on either side, atop which sits the internationally renowned Minack Theatre.

Here the actors compete with incredible scenery and passing dolphins for your attention in this oasis of stunning natural beauty, the backdrop to TV's Poldark.

Further afield, why not spend the day exploring the historic port of Penzance or nearby St Michaels Mount?
