  • "A nice house with plenty of space."

    Nice garden and quiet. The beach isn't far away and shops and pub only 15 minute walk. WiFi wasn't great especially with teenagers, stopped working and slow. There is a slight smell of damp which wasn't a problem for us. After saying that I enjoyed it.

  • "Damp accommodation that does not match the description or pictures on the site."

    Lights not working on the landing, kitchen equipment was dirty and on stripping the beds as advised, the horror of badly stained mattresses. I will be following this up with an official complaint as this is not anywhere near a 4 star property which it is advertised as. Also a health hazard due to the bat colony that roost in the neighbouring building and the bat droppings they deposit in abundance . Would be problem but it is at the entrance to the property which means you are walking it directly into the kitchen.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we take this very seriously. Please accept our apologies for the presence of bat droppings. We do indeed have bats roosting under the eaves of the adjacent property and we clean the droppings away regularly, but will do this more frequently following your comments. As you know, bats are a protected species, and we are unable to move them. With regard to your other comments, we were unaware there was an issue with the mattress, and surprised as it has recently been replaced. We will of course rectify this asap and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do check the lights on changeover so I can only apologise if this bulb was missed. Finally, heating is available and we hope that guests will feel free to use this to feel comfortable during their stay. Property Owner

  • "Apart from all the issues leading up to the holiday (communication with Sykes) the cottage seemed great on arrival."

    Unfortunately it soon became clear that the floors downstairs although had been washed (they were still wet) and smelt clean, were in fact filthy. After wiping up a spilt drink, the cloth turned black! It was then the same when we wiped the kitchen table- dirty again! If the place had taken nine hours to clean, this shouldn't have happened, not should we have found playing cards and Lego under one if the sofas in the playroom. There was a feeling of damp in most of the rooms and as the week went on, the damp smell got worse and the books we'd left in the play room were actually damp right through by the time we left. It was such a shame as the cottage was a great size and great location and we would have booked again, but I can't expect my parents and children to stay in such a damp house. It really needs sorting out!

  • "Despite not being permitted into the property till 6pm due to the understandable extra cleaning required during these Covid 19 times, there were a number of issues with overall cleanliness especially with kitchen utensils needing to be washed before use."

    The owners were very helpful and provided very useful information on arrival. The enclosed garden was a massive hit for all the children and indeed the whole family. The local beach is stunning and the reserved parking at the top of the hill was a blessing. Edgcumbe Park is a must to visit and provided hours of entertainment for the whole family.

  • "The farm house was ideal for the family ( 12 in total with 6 children, five of whom were 7 and under)."

    The garden was large and safe for the children to play in and for all of us to sit and relax. The children loved playing in it . The dedicated car parking for Tregonhawke Farmhouse, at the top of Donkey Lane, was a bonus- a number of cars parked incorrectly on the road at the top of Treganhawke bay, were given parking tickets!!! A small suggestion would be the provision of a second TV somewhere in the house. The TV with DVD in the playroom was great for the children but no free view available on it and WiFi could be improved. However the weather was lovely and little tv watching was carried out. Free fishing, as advertised when we booked, was not available.

  • "We were a group of six friends on a walking holiday."

    We all wanted our own beds, if not our own bedrooms. Tregonhawke gave us plenty of space, good bathrooms facilities and an excellent kitchen for our communal cooking. There was good parking, plenty of hot water and a TV which worked without resorting to multiple controls! The only downside was the lack of a drying room for our ( very) wet walking gear at the end of the day and no central heating controls, other than a thermostat which did not seem to activate the heating.

    The heating is set on auto at 21 degrees. The property has a tumble drier and there is a line outside. The owners live on site and are happy assist guests to make any adjustments which may be required. Property Owner

    The farmhouse is spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there. The children enjoyed playing in the lovely garden and we all enjoyed the walk to the nearby lake. The beach is a short drive away and it was good to be able to use parking spaces reserved for Tregonhawke guests. The owners were very friendly and available to help with any problems.

  • "The farmhouse was absolutely perfect for our group of 13!"

    It was spacious, warm and contained everything you could possibly need. The kids (age 2-7) especially loved having their own 'kids tv/play room'. It's also in a very pretty setting with a secure garden. Amazing beach close by, (steep walk down but worth it) free parking in owners field. Mount Edgcumbe House is 10 minutes away and a great place to walk, bike ride and take in amazing views. The owners are wonderfully friendly and helpful. I would 100% recommend this accommodation to large groups, especially with kids. Excellent!!!

  • "In most respects Tregonhawke was ideal for our family group of 10 including 3 children aged 6 to 8."

    The house is amply equipped with cutlery, crockery and utensils although we wished there was a larger saucepan for cooking purposes. The house was spacious and meant that everyone could find a quiet area if needed and the children enjoyed the playroom. My main suggestion, which will be easy to do, is to improve the wi-fi connectivity around the house by using extenders. We found that having internet availability only in the kitchen was inconvenient. The location is extremely quiet with excellent garden space for the children to play. On the few occasions we needed advice from the owners we found them friendly and helpful. Overall, we were very satisfied.

The property

A ten minute lane walk from Millbrook and from the big sandy beach at Whitsand Bay via a cliff path is Tregonhawke Farmhouse, the origins of which go back to the 16th cent.

It is set over two levels and has been a family home for generations surviving much turbulent history.

Enter from the garden through the porch, kicking off your coats and boots as you go into the big fitted farmhouse kitchen with table, chairs and benches in the middle; walk through to the equally big living room with wood burner and then across a slate-floored hall to a second sitting room with TV.

This room leads through to a double bedroom with door to garden.

At ground level is a shower-room and separate toilet.

Head up the stairs to five more bedrooms – a double with a single, a double, a twin with low door lintel, another twin, and a single – all very individual and prettily done.

Two family bathrooms.

To one side is a very pretty, enclosed garden with large lawn, garden furniture and BBQ.

Mature trees and farmland surround it and about a three minutes walk away there is a coarse fishing lake (carp, tench, roach, rudd, bream and perch – some as large as 25lbs!).

Absolutely great for large family group or groups of friends.

About the location


Whitsand Bay 1 mile; Plymouth 8 miles.

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.
