It had all the modern conveniences whilst retaining the traditional Cornish cottage ambience and features. The local residents were really friendly, and we were welcomed by the owner bringing us fresh flowers and delicious brownies. We really enjoyed our stay. Reviewed by Sharon5.0★Nov 2023 "We had a lovely break at Trerise Cottage and Susie was really helpful making sure we had everything we needed for our grandson." The cottage is well equipped and parking for two cars was brilliant. Trerise is a short drive to Helston, and close to all main routes. There’s even a mobile fish & chips van that comes on a Tuesday eve. If there could be one thing to add to the super comfort of this delightful and well maintained cottage, it would be to add a proper shower to the downstairs bathroom, or install a shower curtain around the existing roll top bath, as 4 adults using our en-suite slowed us up in the mornings. Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable stay! Reviewed by Kim5.0★Oct 2023 "We all had a fantastic holiday in Manaccan." We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Trerise Cottage was perfect; so clean and comfortable. All the amenities and facilities you could hope for plus it was bright and airy and we all had the space we craved. The area is beautiful; quiet and peaceful. We can heartily recommend The New Inn in the village (again, they were really welcoming and the Sunday carvery was awesome) and Sids Fish and Chips on a Tuesday evening. There are lovely walks to Helford (plus the ferry over to Helford Passage) and St Anthony/Gillans Creek. All in all, we had the exact holiday we wanted. As our family is growing up (this was possibly our last holiday all together) we were looking to just relax and spend quality time together. Mission accomplished. We'll definitely rebook for Trerise Cottage, I just hope this review doesn't make it impossible! Reviewed by Mark5.0★Jul 2023 "We had a lovely relaxing week in this beautifully appointed cottage." It was very comfortable and the owner had thought of all sorts of little extra details. The village is pretty and quiet, and the local pub is friendly and welcoming Reviewed by Stephanie4.1★Jun 2023 "This tranquil gorgeous Cottage had everything we needed, attention to detail was definitely applied by the owner." Right down to fresh flowers and homemade flapjacks as a welcoming surprise!! Reviewed by Clare5.0★Jun 2023 "Ian and Susie are outstanding hosts, their property is spotless, well equipped, with a very personal touch in the décor." The Garden was a big hit with our German Shepheard who really enjoyed laying around and chilling in the odd bit of spring sunshine. The New inn is highly recommended with an excellent landlady, good food and some interesting and friendly locals. Tuesday Night Chip Van should not be missed with everything appearing to be cooked to order (It parks about 10 yards from the cottage its almost home delivery) A great base to explore the local area or just kick back and chill. We will certainly be looking at returning. Reviewed by Rob5.0★Mar 2023 "Fantastic. Will recommend 2 Trerise to all our friends" Reviewed by Ros5.0★Feb 2023 "Beautiful and spotlessly clean cottage."

Reviewed by Louise5.0★Oct 2022 "We enjoyed a very happy time at 2 Trerise Cottage- this is a very comfortable and well thought out cottage with great attention to detail." The owners are very friendly and very responsive to any questions. The village of Manaccan is beautiful and in a perfect location for walking and exploring the Lizard.

Reviewed by Mim5.0★Jul 2022 "Beautiful property which honestly isn’t done justice by the photos." Very well equipped and Susie (owner) on hand and helpful. Lovely peaceful location which was also great for walks and exploring the lizard peninsula. The local pub was also very welcoming and served excellent value food and breakfasts. Reviewed by Fiona5.0★Jul 2022 "This was the without doubt the best cottage we've ever stayed at." The rooms were beautifully furnished and so well equipped it had everything possible you'd need, like a home from home. The beds were super comfortable, lovely soft and bouncy which made a welcome change from the usual firm mattresses you get in most holiday homes. We were fortunate enough to stay during the Queen's platinum jubilee and were made most welcome not only by the lovely hosts, but also by the friendly local community. An absolute gem of a cottage in good location for visiting surrounding areas of the lizard. We certainly hope to return.

The village is a lovely place, a great local pub, which offered good value food and drink. Tuesday fish and chip night a welcome relief from cooking. The property is well presented and the great little touches of fresh flowers, and home baked chocolate fudge cakes were a lovely thought.

Lovely safe garden for children and dogs. Located in a very picturesque area with plenty of walks from the door and even more just a short drive away. This part of Cornwall is less commercialised than other areas of Cornwall which is quite refreshing particularly in relation to car parking and public loos which operate on honesty boxes in the main. We had a fabulous holiday and are likely to return another time. Reviewed by Philippa5.0★Oct 2021 "This was our 4th stay at 2 Trerise Cottages."

Reviewed by Kate3.8★Aug 2021 "Lovely property that was very clean and had everything needed for a self-catering holiday including bi bags and dishwasher tablets." We had a great holiday despite the wet weather. Some of the instructions in the property folder could do with updating e.g. instructions for the underfloor heating in the kitchen/diner which are not correct and clearer recycling information.

It is more of a home rather than a holiday let. Exceptionally clean and comfortable - the owners have provided everything that you could possibly need! As the weather was particularly awful during our stay we spent more time in the cottage than we would have done normally so the standard of the accommodation was extremely appreciated. The location is great for reaching lots of the beauty spots and we liked being able to walk from the cottage to Helford, where there is a great place to eat, and the wonderful Frenchman's Creek. We can't praise Trerise Cottage enough and highly recommend it for a brilliant stay in Cornwall. Reviewed by Sylvia5.0★Sep 2019 "The cottage was lovely." Well appointed, we couldn't have wished for a nicer place in such a lovely location with easy access to so many wonderful places. Great cottage in a stunning location. Reviewed by Fran5.0★Sep 2019 "The cottage was lovely." It probably had everything we needed, from a washing machine to salt and vinegar for our fish and chips. It was extremely clean, probably the cleanest place we have ever rented. One of the down sides was the layout of the living room, which meant everyone trying to watch the tv was difficult because of its position. Having the tv on a bracket that swings out would probably be better. The smallest bedroom also got very hot. Even though there was a fan in there, it really needs to be a bigger fan to make a difference. Having a washing machine and washing line to hang stuff out is a necessity with a family, however we discovered the washing line could have done with being over the opposite side of the garden. It only seemed to get the sun in a morning, so after lunch time it was in the shade, which meant washing didnt dry very well. Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at 2 Trerise Cottage . We love to hear from guests about their stays at our properties. The TV bracket is a bit stiff and will be treated with WD40. The Owners have asked the neighbours to trim the Buddleia Tree to open up the garden to even more light. We are pleased that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at 2 Trerise Cottage. Property Owner Reviewed by Julie4.7★Aug 2019 "The cottage was fantastic, so beautifully presented and equipped for everything we needed." It's in a stunning location with so many lovely local walks. We will definitely be back! Reviewed by Laura5.0★Jul 2019 "The cottage was superb." A real home from home. Internally you couldn’t find fault. The bed in the master bedroom was too firm for us but that’s personal taste. The kitchen had everything in it you could possibly think of. The owner was lovely and happy to answer any questions. Cottage superbly located. Lots of walks so ideal for the dog. Fantastic local pub. Very friendly and excellent food, ate there twice during the week. My only suggestion to the owner, given the beautiful weather we were blessed with, is some nice external furniture would finish the place off nicely. There’s nothing to sit on to read a book in the sun, a couple of loungers/deck chairs would have been most welcomed. Other than that it was perfect.

The workmanship and quality is also very good and of high standard.It is in a nice peaceful and quiet location,with lots of lovely walks from the doorstep,a great base to visit the beautiful Cornwall from. On arrival we had a nice little tray of brownies ,but unlike other quality cottages like this there was no welcome tray set up with milk.However that was only the minor fault as everything else was good.

The attention to detail is outstanding. The cottage was very clean and tastefully decorated. The large garden was an added bonus as we had a dog with us. Unfortunately the local pub didn't provide evening pub metals during the week only Friday's and Saturday's due to the fact that the Community has taken it over. This mattered very little there is very good food to be had in the pubs in the surrounding villages.

The property On the edge of the pretty village of Manaccan, near Frenchman’s Creek and with outstanding walks and beaches nearby, is 2 Trerise Cottage. Dating back to the 19th century, this smart, semi-detached cottage has been lovingly refurbished to create charming, stylish home with a distinct holiday atmosphere. From the large, bright kitchen with dining area an internal window looks through to cosy sitting room with exposed, beamed ceiling, pretty window seats and a wood burning stove sits in a traditional Cornish inglenook. Stairs lead to three bedrooms – a king size double with en-suite shower-room and lovely countryside views, a second double with a vaulted ceiling and beams, and a single. Behind the cottage is an enclosed lawned garden and sitting area with barbecue, from here, far-reaching views look over fields and the rugged Lizard peninsula landscape. The village of Manaccan is in beautiful walking country, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideally placed for exploring great beaches. ¼ mile away are the magical creeks of the Helford Passage, and 1 mile away is St Anthony-in-Meneage where you can hire boats, or indulge in a little wild river swimming. Take the foot ferry across the Helford River to the village of Helford, or the larger town of Helston with plenty of amenities, is within a short drive. Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100. View on map About the location MANACCAN Helston 10 miles ; Helford 1.5 miles ; Porthallow 3 miles The village of Manaccan on the South Helford is small and friendly, with an excellent restaurant, friendly village inn and a beautiful 12th century church. The South Helford is arguably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Cornwall. With meandering country roads, picturesque creeks, tidal inlets and pretty waterside villages, the area can be summed up in three words: tranquil, charming and timeless. The perfect spot for enjoying outdoor living, the South Helford’s sheltered coves were made for messing around on the water and strolling leisurely along the banks. Leave your ‘phone behind and embrace the simple pleasures - while away time paddling in the shallows, explore hidden coves with a hire boat from St Anthony, and stroll through woodland to enjoy a picnic on the beach.
