  • "Nice accomodation just a shame building work going on behind, three large town houses so out of place in the environment, otherwise a comfortable stay ."

    So sorry about the building work - I didn’t know that was still ongoing during your stay. I’m glad you liked the accommodation. It’s a lovely spot isn’t it! Property Owner

  • "Charming cottage with pleasant views at a walkable distance to Carbis Bay."

    Everything was in good working order and it was great to have an enclosed garden for our dog and two good sized parking spaces. Main issue was that the bedrooms had feather cushions which really set our children off. We had several days of sniffles and sneezes before we clocked what the issue was and stored the cushions in the porch out of the way. It would be a good idea to replace these or ask potential guests if they are ok with feathers. Better instructions about the rubbish i.e. where to leave waste for compost and bin men would be helpful as well as that the dishwasher has a cutlery shelf right at the top (for those of us who have only used cutlery baskets before). Other suggestions would be changing the bedroom door handles as they make rather a noise opening them if you need to visit the bathroom in the night and leaving some logs for the stove if guests wants to use it on their first night. Thanks

    Thanks for your feedback and I’m glad you had such a lovely time Property Owner

    The bed was quite hard to sleep on could do with some comfortable pillows. Other wise very nice stay.

  • "Gorgeous country cottage with a very high standard of cleanliness."

    Everything we needed was there except a washing line. Not that important though. Beautiful well kept garden and parking for 2 cars. Would definitely stay there again if down in Cornwall

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay. I’d always choose our tumble dryer over a washing line, but that’s just me! You’ve given me food for thought…. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "This little cottage oozes country charm."

    Comfortable, warm and cozy. The beds were comfortable and the linen was fresh and clean. It was really sad to pack up after several days exploring the beautiful beaches, coastline and countryside of Cornwall. So much more to do and explore but we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Relaxing by the fire at night and enjoying quality family time. The owners have considered every little detail to make you feel welcome and at home and to make your stay a happy and memorable one. A delightful little cottage with everything you need. Thank you very much.

    So glad you enjoyed the cottage! I love it myself but only manage to visit rarely as it books up so quick! Property Owner

    So clean and had almost everything you could need, the only possible negative I can think of is some games or cards might be a good addition.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay - and Iove your suggestion to get a pack of cards for the cottage. Great idea! we're ordering a pack straight away! Thanks Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely break away and this was a lovely holiday cottage."

    The cottage was well equipped and in a good location. Our only complaints were the twin beds were extremely uncomfortable and gave me a bad back. I ended up sleeping on the spare duvet on top of the mattress. We were surprised the garden was a bit untidy and grass overgrown, shed needs painting too and weeding needs doing. The kitchen was well equipped but missing a pair of scissors.

    “Thanks for this feedback - we’ve now bought lovely new beds for this cottage :) Trehan is a very popular holiday cottage and is often booked out throughout the season. Guest feedback is hugely helpful in letting us know what needs doing, to keep this cottage to its high standard of cosiness, cuteness and comfyness - which is what we all love most about it!” Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a fabulous location."

    Garden was nice and spacious for us, our baby and dogs. Only downside we found was that there was no baby gate available for the stairs, we have a 17month old that loves climbing so couldn't really relax, highchair straps were mouldy and the travel cot was very musty and full of cobwebs not ideal for our baby to sleep in.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and for bringing this to our attention. The Cot and Highchair have now been replaced. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Trehan otherwise. Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage."

    I stayed with my 2 friends and our little dogs (3 dogs in total). The cottage was really clean, warm and really nicely decorated with plenty of storage space. I was a bit concerned about the beds given the previous reviews but as promised by sykes cottages the beds had new mattresses and were really comfortable, The kitchen had all the facilities and pots and pans you would need and there was an additional fridge in the porch if you needed extra fridge space. The garden is really nicely done with plenty of space for the dogs to potter around and it was totally secure so they couldn't get out of the garden. As the cottage is in a lane with a just a few other properties it was lovely and quiet. The location is about 5 mins driving time from Carbis beach. With the cottage comes membership of the Carbis bay hotel C-spa and you get two passes to use each day. We loved the spa with the roof top pool and jacuzzi and sauna. The cottage also comes with washing machine and tumble dryer in an outside shed which was so handy when we came back from the beach. We also had a welcome gift of scones, cream and jam when we arrived which was a really nice touch. The cottage has a small bathroom but great shower really hot and spacious. The cottage also had two dedicated parking spaces which was great. I will definately be booking again. Thank you for a lovely stay :-) I would sincerely recommend this cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage with quirky layout and nicely done out."

    I only scored it low for comfort because the main bed is a small double and as other reviewers have noted, the mattress is knackered! Could do with replacing, preferably with a king size bed. The hot water was also a bit hit and miss - we had a few cold showers towards the end of the week. Otherwise the cottage was well equipped and very warm and cosy, we never needed to light the wood burner even in late december/early january! But then we are northerners and the climate in cornwall is sub-tropical by our standards.... I found the instructions for dealing with the waste and recycling a bit confusing... not sure what to do with the bagged waste and which day to put bags out as instructions said thursday night but then there was another notice saying bins out saturday?

    Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts. I am pleased to let you know that the owner has taken your comments on board and replaced the mattress in the master bedroom. The information regarding refuse has also been updated. We are glad that you found the property to be well equipped, warm and cosy. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The beds are desperately uncomfortable and we left a few days early in search of a better sleep."

    That said, the cottage is beautiful and extremely warm and well kept - one of the best we’ve had. It’s peacefully situated and Carbis Bay Spa was a welcoming experience one evening. The safe garden was great for our dog, cooking facilities and WiFi were better than anticipated- just need some larger mugs and a corkscrew for my personal taste. We had read the other reviews about the mattresses and having travelled extensively thought they couldn’t be that bad - they were. I cannot believe this has yet to be addressed by the owners for a relatively small sum of money, I suppose I was hoping they would read and action customer feedback. Perhaps they should stay a couple of nights themselves!

  • "Very pretty, comfortable cottage."

    Decked out beautifully, and not twee. Love the Mousehole Cat touches in the children's room. Old stone cottage which does mean things can feel a bit damp after a while, but this wasn't helped by a really wet week weather wise. We had everything we needed. Brilliant secure garden for our dog, which well maintained. A washing line in the garden would have been useful for wet towels. The double bed in the 'master' bedroom was very creaky and not that comfortable. I mention this as I can see other comments have been made about this. I think it is quite old and due for replacement. The single beds in the other bedroom were fine. Locally, the fish and chips at Becks was fab. La Casita restaurant also great. All of us (dog included) enjoyed Porthkidney beach. We had to take our recyclable rubbish out and find communal bins, neighbours were putting out their recycling, so being able to do the same would have been appreciated. Overall a great stay and I would recommend.

  • "Trehan is a beautiful cottage set in a ideal area to get around Cornwall and is nearby to The lovely Carbis bay beach, the only issues we had were the facilities in the cottage which could easily be addressed by the owner, which was no washing line to air clothes after using the washing machine, also the shower screen was hanging off the runner when we got there that could be fixed easily with new fixings and lastly the main oven didn’t work and as we were on a budget we had to eat at the cottage most nights and resorted to using the small oven to feed a family of four, but the actual cottage it self was very nice and if the facilities were updated I would highly recommend staying in this cottage."

  • "Lovely welcome with scones, cream, jam and teas, a really nice touch."

    The decor of the property is lovely and we absolutely loved it. The cottage was gorgeous, everything was excellent and just perfect for a week away, the Smart TV was a great addition for when we come home after a long day at the beach, the Bluetooth speaker was an excellent idea too. Iron, ironing board too. The kitchen was so well equipped you could cook a roast dinner or even bake cakes they’ve thought of everything. The garden was perfect, enclosed and safe for your dog and the kids. BBQ in the shed and also beach buckets, and some chairs to take the beach. My only criticism is the double bed mattress it is really uncomfortable, you can feel all the springs. The location is good too, a few mins drive to St Ives and walkable to carbis bay. Check out the beautiful dog friendly beach of Porthkidney off the main road by West Cornwall golf club. Absolutely stunning, not much parking near the church but we parked on the grass verge near the golf course. We’d definitely return to the cottage

    Perfectly situated in a quiet lane. Peaceful setting. Delightful neighbours and very easy access to St Ives and the surrounding countryside. My only comment is that the double bed mattress was a little too hard for my liking and I am aware that that is a personal preference. The other issue is that there was not facility for recycling. We recycle everything at home including food waste. We have stayed places where this facility is available. We took out bottles, cardboard and newspapers into Hayle to recycle. In this day and age we should all try to achieve this whether at home or on holiday - disappointed!

    Perfectly positioned for how we like to holiday. Quiet and peaceful along a back lane , but very near everywhere we were interested in visiting. The bed was comfortable and the linen was clean and fresh smelling. (I hate sweaty pillows with a whiff of unwashed hair from previous occupant,) Our little dog who accompanied us was relaxed straight away also. He loved watching horses clip clop past the sitting room window from time to time. The garden was nicely laid out and secure which is a must when having a dog with you. Neighbours pleasant but not intrusive. All in all a very happy week we had. Thankyou

Just a short walk from the heart of the town is the train station, where one of the most spectacular coastal journeys with breathtaking views from Carbis Bay to St Ives can be enjoyed.

The coastal walk from St Ives to Porthminster Beach is worth a visit any time of year for the azure waters and brilliant sands in the summer to the contrasting vibrant wind-whipped surf during the winter months.

There are so many things to do and places to visit - Land's End, St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre and the Tate Gallery should also feature on the itinerary for those who want to experience the very best the area has to offer.

Golf enthusiasts can try the links course at Lelant which has a magnificent setting, with panoramic views of St. Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse forming the backdrop.
