  • "Great little cottage!"

    Thank you Chad. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a quiet village well placed for many of Cornwall's best bits."

    Nice pub with good food in village with a fun quiz on a Thursday night. Nice welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits and milk but a few logs would have been appreciated. Also need an outside light in the porch to get the keys and to light steps to the garage, where there is an additional fridge freezer. The folder is out of date referring to a laundry bag we couldn't find. These are all minor things that would not put us off booking this cosy comfortable cottage again. Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you liked our cottage. Unfortunately we find it difficult to provide logs for every guest as we do not have the storage space. We provide logs at the start of the winter season and ask that guests replenish them but this doesn't always happen. There is a light in the porch so I guess you either didn't find the switch next to the door or the light bulb had gone. We are checking whether the bulb had gone and will replace. Thank you for pointing out the welcome booklet needed updating, we are in the process of doing this. We hope to see you back at Trelan. Thank You. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Lovely location but quite remote and you need to drive to find a shop for groceries etc. Roads are narrow around the area and ignore sat nav - it will send you on very narrow roads where locals drive very fast! Loved our stay in the Cottage!

    Thank you Amanda, I’m really pleased you enjoyed your stay. For future guests, we are 2 miles from the beautiful fishing port of Mevagissey, 5 miles from St Austell, 2 miles from Pentewan and 1 mile from Heligan Gardens. At Heligan (besides the wonderful Lost Gardens) there is a local farm shop called Lobbs with butchery, bakery, deli, wine, staples. In Mevagissey, you find a bakery, coffee shops, convenience store, pubs, fish & chips, Restaurants. In Pentewan, you will find a Co-op, pizza, cycle hire, water sports, pub and coffee. St Austell is a reasonable sized town so has all the usual suspects in terms of supermarkets, petrol, shops. In the village itself there is a lovely country pub. Sat nav has a bad habit of sending you the back way from St Austell so would advise sticking to the main road towards Mevagissey and we are an easy mile off that road, avoiding all narrow routes.

  • "This was one of the best properties we have ever stayed in."

    It was spotless and just as described. We have been on cottage holidays for the last 10 years and usually during our stay I find that something is missing, poorly maintained or broken but everything here was spot on. The large garage was an added bonus as it meant we could put the car away each night and we don’t have a small car. Would highly recommend this property.

    So happy to hear, thank you for your feedback. Dani, Gary & Evie Grace. Property Owner

  • "Trelan is an extremely well appointed cottage and beautifully decorated."

    It was spotlessly clean and welcoming. The beds are the most comfortable we have experienced. The only problem we encountered was the steps in the garden would benefit from a handrail . St Ewe is well situated for exploring the area and we enjoyed eating at the pub around the corner. Lobb’s farm shop at Heligan is very well stocked and worth a visit.

  • "A second enjoyable holiday with family, ideal accommodation for us, as grandparents we use the master bedroom with en-suite."

    Well equipped and comfortable, some dusty items in master bedroom, candle lamps on window sill. No hand soap in en-suite and only one toilet roll in both bathrooms, in view of the high costs of holiday accommodation, I think these should have been provided, also an anti bacterial cleaner in the kitchen. On the plus side the cottage is spacious, stylish, very well equipped and in a lovely location, good parking, garden for relaxing and playing in and handy for the village pub where we ate four times. We spent many happy hours at Gorran Haven which is only ten minutes away which was perfect. Near to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mevagissey where we enjoyed a rib ride. I totally recommend Trelan!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and I’m really pleased to hear you had an enjoyable stay. I have noted the comment regarding some dusty items and have asked house-keeping to do a thorough clean on their next visit. As a self-catered cottage we provide a wide range of items to allow guests to cater for themselves and enough household goods to ensure guests have what they need on the first night. Guests can expect a toilet roll in each bathroom and, generally, there is also handwash so I have noted this point to address too. In the kitchen there are a variety of different cleaning products in the drawer under the sink and a hand sanitiser on the worktop. I will ask for some anti-bacterial cleaner to be added. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage, although in a small isolated village, is centrally located so travelling around Cornwall is easy."

    It’s very clean and well kept, with everything you could want to make your stay extremely comfortable. Plenty of things to keep both adults and children entertained as described in the write up. The garden is lovely and sunny, furniture and some outdoor games available. There is a pub serving delicious food at reasonable prices, with a very friendly atmosphere just a few steps away. The only negative I can think of is that the garage is only big enough for a small car, I have a mini and it just fit, and the parking area is only big enough for 1 car so if you take more than 1 car you might struggle, but saying that all the benefits out way the negative. I would recommend this cottage to both couples and families. Thanks for a fantastic stay, we hope to return next year.

  • "The holiday cottage slept 6 people yet the fridge wasn't big enough for 2 people."

    The kitchen has no storage / empty cupboards for you to put food in. The second bedroom had no chest of drawers despite their being room for them so my clothes were left on the floor :( The twin bedroom had the tiniest chest of drawers that you could hardly fit any clothes in. The property smelt of damp especially in the bedrooms where you could hang clothes. The property opposite & to the side of the cottage was doing building work the whole time we were there so it felt like we were on a building site. Not worth the money at all very disappointing.

    Unfortunately we can’t please everybody and we would encourage you to read the many lovely reviews from our guests. The fridge is a standard 61 litre fridge with a separate freezer in the outhouse so more than adequate for 6 people. That said, we have removed this freezer and added a new tall free-standing fridge/freezer in the garage which provides ample storage for fresh/frozen goods. There are 2 clear cupboards in the kitchen and a small integral/pull-out shelving unit for storage of larder goods. The 2 bedrooms referenced have hanging wardrobes with integral shelving for smaller items. There is room for a chest of drawers so we have now added one in to the double bedroom and supplemented the existing chest of drawers in the twin with a second set. Whilst the property had been thoroughly cleaned in readiness for our first guests post lockdown the property could’ve benefited from more airing that can be achieved by leaving the windows on night lock and which we’ve asked house-keeping to double-check when they are at the property. Regarding value for money, these guests paid £230 pp to stay in a beautiful Cornish cottage for 7 nights and we would surmise that this type of holiday proposition is simply not for them.

  • "The cottage had more than we expected."

    It was very cosy and warm. There were no limitation s or rules for us to follow. The key safe worked very well. We had a great time. It was a great place to come home to during a rainy week.

  • "This cottage is advertised for 6 people we were a party of 4 adults(2 couples) and 2 teenagers ."

    The second double bedroom is too small we had to turn round a bedside cabinet so the door to the room would shut without hitting the cabinet. The other side of the bed the drawer of the bedside cabinet could not be opened due to the radiator . The windowsill was the only place to stand toiletries etc . There was only one chair. So with a small drawer cabinet in the wardrobe there was a lack of storage space. The fridge in the kitchen was not sufficient to store supplies for 6 people, important as there is no local shop. The worktops are cluttered and thus difficult to prepare food. As we had nice sunny weather we were disappointed as we were unable to hang out washing to dry . I am aware there was a washer/ dryer but not everything is suitable for that.

    Really useful feedback, thank you. We have recently replaced the bedside cabinets in the second bedroom to address the problems you experienced in closing the door and have added baskets, for extra storage space, in the wardrobe. The fridge in the kitchen is a standard size with lots of local options for buying produce during your stay - Lobbs Farm Shop at Heligan offers a butchery, bakery and deli (1 mile), there is a small convenience store in Mevagissey (3 miles) and a variety of supermarkets, some offering home delivery, in St Austell (6 miles). We have chosen not to leave a washing line, instead a new washer/dryer, however have noted your cormment and added a clothes horse which will hopefully help future customers. Thank you again.

  • "The cottage was comfortable and well equipped and true to photographs as advertised, I do feel that sink drains need to be cleaned and sterilised after each occupancy the kitchen sink was clogged and causing a nasty smell."

    , but after a bottle of bleach and a boiling water it was cleared . The expel-air in the en-suite needed to be cleaned was very dirty, and dust behind the chest of drawers in master bedroom just needs a feather duster down it again after every occupancy. I feel because of these few details I have mentioned it was overpriced.

    Thank you for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. I am pleased to share that we have changed our cleaning supplier as, like you, we were not happy with their standards. Thank you for sharing. Dani, Gary & Evie Grace. Property Owner
