  • "Our stay at the Trenant Cottage was good."

    The dog-friendly cottage has everything you need for a lovely time away in Cornwall. The location was perfect for us. Menabilly beach is super close, which is beautiful and dog friendly. We enjoyed our stay there very much, and we highly recommend it.

  • "The kitchen in the cottage was not equipped for self catering."

    It had a minimal 4 plates, bowls, beakers, glasses & cutlery. There wasn't any bowls to use to cook in the oven or microwave or any additional plates or dishes to make self catering more manageable. We had to empty a cupboard under the sink to make space to put our dry food items we had packed. Sadly it also lacked anywhere to hang damp towels following a shower. It also lacked a clothes airer to hang any washing you did to dry. The welcoming porch would have benefitted from a place to hang your outside coats & a boot rack for dirty shoes. The internal door to the bathroom did not close fully & there was no lock on the door if needed. Also, the internal door into the cottage from the porch had no handle on it so you could not shut it, it remained half open unless you put something up against the door from the inside but when leaving you had to leave it like that & just lock the porch door! Also, the tin roof on the property made it extremely noisy when it rained! And in the small bedroom there was no mirror or bedside lighting so you could read in bed. Both bedrooms had hanging space, but no drawers or storage baskets to store the rest of your belongings. Finally the directions for the property were not correct. The only way we found it was by ringing the owner. However, the cottage is set in the most beautiful place with fabulous walks from the doorstep, if all the above could be rectified we would not hesitate on booking again.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback about your recent stay at Trenant Cottage. We put great emphasis on using all of our guest feedback to improve on our offering and ultimately make the guest experience the best it can be. I'm sorry that there was a lack of cutlery and other essential items in the cottage, along with some maintenance issues to address, thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will be sure to rectify the aspects raised immediately. We will also endeavour to give clear and accurate directions to the property, which understandably can be difficult when travelling down Cornish country roads. I'm glad that you enjoyed our picturesque location and the great walks to the coast, we hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
