  • "We loved this property, a great location and the views couldn’t be much better."

    We slept really well as the cottage was in a quiet location. Although we were there out the of busiest season so that could have played a part. But the cottage is tucked away at the top of the village so doubt the noise would ever be a problem. We especially liked the ground floor, keeping the door open for us & the dogs to enjoy the sunny secure front terrace. Only thing we’d wished more was a comfortable chair or sofa in the ground floor for a more enjoyable lounging there. We’d definitely recommend this cottage and have actually already booked another week later in the year.

  • "We have stayed at this property a number of times now and we love it."

    It is a real home from home and offers comfortable accommodation. The kitchen is small but perfectly laid out with all the cooking equipment you need. During the colder nights the central heating is excellent and both the open fire and log burner kick out extra comforting heat if required (with logs and coal available in the local shop or the next village of Millbrook). It fells like I am coming home to my favourite Cornish village, of which I will never tire.

    Well equipped and clean it offers lovely sea glimpses across the village rooftops to Plymouth Sound and the Minnadhu from the patio. We had a fantastic stay.

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage but the following feedback essential and needs urgently addressing: No mattress covers on beds."

    2 pillows covers present, out of 8 pillows. Both mattresses stained and grossly unhygienic, pillows stained and malodorous. Master bedroom bedding, duvet cover fasteners melted/ not present so inadequately covered, further compromising hygiene. No recycling facilities ie bags) available and no bottle/ cardboard bank in village, despite advice. No option but to put a large bag of mixed rubbish out as we could not take recycling home with us. No logs in log basket/ outside as advised. Information on where to source local logs would have been welcome. Minor point as would not have fed back if above points had not been so pertinent

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are very sorry to hear of the issues you raise, which are in stark contrast to many other positive reviews we’ve received for the property. As you’ll see to date, comments on the property have been complimentary so far and yours is the first which isn’t so. We’ve spoken to the owner in depth who disputes your statement and feel these comments are unfair and unjustified. During several direct forms of communication between yourself and the owner it was explained that there is no recycling procedure at the property as the owner uses a commercial waste company to remove ALL rubbish. A sensor bin was purchased specifically so that guests did not need to touch the interior bin, black bin bags are provided for this, as well as an exterior dustbin to store the full bin bags until such times when they are collected and removed on changeover day. It is the owners understanding that the local car park provided recycling facilities for cardboard and glass, however it may be that the council have removed these facilities, we will check this. It is understood that the regular housekeeper of Trebyan did not carry out the changeover in preparation for your visit and it may be that items such as pillow protectors/mattress protectors were not provided on this occasion, the owner is currently looking into this, however had we been notified of this during your stay we would have been able to replicate this for you. The owner has advised that it was his intention to replace all pillows, protectors and mattress at the end of this season, this is not due to your feedback but the fact that ongoing maintenance and the upkeep of the property is always at the forefront of his mind. A very strict cleaning regime is carried out following each guest's departure, even more so with Covid, therefore the washing of linen at very high temperatures may have resulted in plastic buttons/fasteners to have misshaped slightly on the duvet covers, this will be looked into now that it has been bought to our attention. We do not advertise that logs are provided, whilst information on where they can be purchased locally is found in the welcome folder, this has been removed from the property following our advice under the current situation, again had you contacted us or the owner we would have happily advised. The owner takes their letting of Trebyan very seriously and prides himself on giving good holiday experiences – this is reflected in the feedback we have received and we have every confidence this will continue to be the case moving forward.

    Trebyan is up there with the best if not the best we have stayed in. Very clean and comfortable. Facilities very good. A tumble dryer would be a welcome addition. All in all though excellent. We will return.

    It’s such a homely place with everything you need for a relaxing break. The cottage ian great for cooking with lots of kitchen utensils and a large eating area. There is also a huge bath so you can have a relaxing soak. The fire in the lounge is the best bit as you can relax on the sofa and feel the heat with ease.

  • "Had a terrific week weather wise but if it had been much colder we couldn’t have wished for a warmer, more comfortable cottage."

    We were fortunate in late October to be able to make use of the sunny front garden which had great views and was lovely to be able to chat to people going past. Definitely hope to return to Trebyan next year. Fabulous walks to Edgcumbe right from the front door. My puppy loved it running free for hours and I never tired of the amazing views.

    It is our favourite Cornish cottage and we were not disappointed in any way. The cottage was clean, comfortable and the same high standard. I would like to suggest that a few more mugs are provided and some of the plates and mugs were chipped. We had a wonderful holiday and would like to return again in the future.

  • "This was our second time at Trebyan in two years."

    I was glad to see that further to my comments last year, the outside area had been pruned back showing a hosepipe which proved very useful for washing the sandy dogs. I also noted this year that there was bedding available for the sofa bed, a sensible reduction in ornaments and trinkets and the floors and surfaces were clean and had obviously been well maintained. There was a plentiful supply of cooking utensils and equipment along with more than a good supply of washing up liquid and cleaning materials. The dishwasher salt had run out and providing only 4 dishwashing tablets for a week's worth of dirty crockery for a small family etc seems a little short-sighted. An endless supply of drinking glasses and plates was evident but only 5 mugs in total for coffee/tea and 5 cereal/desert bowls yet again seems very short-sighted and impractical. However, the quilts were incredibly noisy as they seem to comprise a plastic/crinkly content and so rustled at every tiny movement - that did not allow for restful sleep. The mattress covers had seen better days as had the mattresses, which were not the comfiest in the world. Finally the blinds were irritating and need proper re-threading. It was almost impossible to drop them down without the thread tangling and the pulling up was very much a see-saw approach. I think the most disappointing thing about the cosmetic aspect of Trebyan is the paintwork on the windows. Paint had peeled off in most places, it just looked unkempt and almost un-cared for compared to the other houses around. The back of the house by the bins had an enormous amount of clutter and rubbish (broken timber/pipes etc) which could be seen and the drain just outside smelled if you had the back window in the smaller bedroom open. This is a pity as the house itself has so much to offer is brilliant for dogs and children and we really enjoyed using the spacious kitchen/ dining area and cosy character driven lounge. Essentially at the back of my and my sister's minds were : How would we like people to rate our houses and meet guests' expectations if we rented them out and, to us, the above were important and perhaps need addressing to some degree.

  • "The cottage was lovely and ideally situated within the village."

    Easy access to the coastal paths and the beach plus all the amenities the village offered. It was very spacious and had everything we needed although the stair gates were a bit cumbersome, would have been better if they could open outwards as well as inwards. You could tell that it had been a lovely home before a rental. On the downside, it was lacking a bit of TLC - the carpets on the stairs are really dirty and the garden at the front is terribly overgrown with large weeds (not like the picture on the website). It was difficult to have space for more than two chairs! Nothing that could not be rectified. Overall, we had a lovely stay and a fantastic week of sunshine. We would definitely consider staying again.

  • "We all really liked our first time at Trebyan."

    The cottage was really comfortable and homely. It is also well located to walk the dogs on the paths towards Mount Edgcumbe and to pick up the sun in the front garden for most of the day. We weren't as lucky with the weather as in previous years so we made good use of the open fire and wood burners. The owner (Tony) was helpful and responsive when we needed to contact him. I am sure we will stay again.

The property

Trebyan is one of a row of south facing ancient cottages with 17th cent origins, set over three levels, just a hop and a skip from one of Kingsand’s excellent pubs.

It has pretty views over rooftops to the sea.

Its character starts as you enter its front door with a 5’8” lintel leading you into sunlight-filled dining room with limestone floor, beams, and multi-fuel stove, through to the galley kitchen with handcrafted oak worktops.

Head up the half-turn stairs to the living room which has an open fire, comfy sofas (one a sofa bed) and back door to ancient back lane.

At this level, there is a dear little single bedroom with another low lintel.

More stairs up to a double bedroom with long views over the village and coast, and a smart beamed family bathroom.

In front, there is a tiny sunny garden with garden furniture for two where more pedestrians and horse riders pass by than vehicles.

Less than a minutes’ stroll away is the entrance to Mount Edgcumbe’s 800 acre estate and the Coast Path.

A gem of a cottage and just right for a couple or small family.
