“The house is really well set up to give space to individuals when needed but to all get together communally at breakfast, brunch, dinner and for playing games.”
It made our celebration of our sons 30th really easy. Hopefully will return at some point.

“A wonderful time was had by all we have returned refreshed and ready to face life's challenges.”
We would like to thank everyone involved in contributing to this success from the staff at Helpful Holidays to the wonderful Lara who's response to a little mishap was prompt and efficient. This is our second visit to Tratawn and can't wait for our third, the house is comfortable and well equipped, the facilities provided kept us all entertained for hours so much we only left the house to replenish the food larder and drinks cupboard. Thank you x- Mrs Buck, October 2018
“The house is roomy and suitable for a wide range of age groups.”
There is plenty of sitting space both in the lounge and for more formal dining and the kitchen is superbly equipped. If the weather is doubtful, hours of entertainment are to be found in the games room and swimming pool. Our grandchildren loved this bit of the house.- Mr Beer, October 2018
“This was a perfect house for a mixed age group.”
A really imposing house but so comfortable with amazing gardens which lead down into woods on three sides. The games room and swimming pool was the icing on the cake. Meaning the kids were entertained in the evenings while the adults could relax after a day exploring Cornwall’s beautiful beaches and towns.- Ms Smith, September 2018
“Everything was fine and all went like clockwork.”
Well equipped, both indoors and in games room. Pool a great success as were the woodland walks for dogs and owners. Great holiday enjoyed by all - it was to celebrate a couple of special birthdays. Ideal.- Mrs Tibbott, May 2018
“Lovely house, well equipped and comfortable.”
Swimming pool a huge success.- Mr Johnson, April 2018
“Good quality cotton bedding would have been a nice extra.”
Other than that the accommodation and setting were excellent. Very well equipped for a large family gathering and ideal for children. Thank you for all your help!- Mrs Henderson, March 2018

About 2 miles from the little village of St Kew, and 3½ from the sea at Port Isaac is Tretawn Farmhouse, a handsome, detached, Grade II* listed, 16th/17th century manor house, part of the Lamellen Estate, still managed to this day by its Cornish owners.
Set well back from the road and approached via a wide sweeping gravel forecourt, the house is surrounded by 5 acres of garden and woodland, and there’s a heated indoor pool with changing room, WC and shower, plus large games room with full size snooker table and table tennis, for your amusement.
This splendid house provides excellent accommodation for families in this delightful part of north Cornwall.
Inside it’s big and roomy with ample space for everyone to relax and unwind.
Enter via stylish open porch to hallway, off which a big sitting room, separated from the hall by Elizabethan oak panelling, with a wood burning stove and huge mullioned windows with window seats for enjoying the view.
Also off the hallway, a snug/reading room with flame-effect fire.
Double doors from the living room lead to a substantial dining room for family feasts and then to the big, well equipped kitchen and a boot room. Along the back of the house, a large play area-cum-hall with wood burning stove and a door to the garden terrace. Access to the first floor is via two separate staircases, the original steep spiral stairs with a rope rail and a conventional staircase up to seven comfortable bedrooms, two with super king size doubles.
Set well back from the road, Tretawn Farmhouse is set amidst 5 acres of garden and woodland.
Youngsters can let off steam on the huge, lawn at the back with fields beyond, and have fun in the Wendy house and indoor heated swimming pool and games area housed in adjacent barns.
Relax on the huge garden terrace, perfect for taking in the lovely rural views.
Your four-legged friends will be delighted with the covered dog run.
If you fancy a pint and pub grub, head for the local village inn, or a short drive away in Port Isaac, you've a good selection of fine restaurants, pubs and eateries to choose from.
Make a jolly night of it there on a summer evening when the world-famous Fisherman’s Friends sing their captivating shanties down on the waterfront (they occasionally appear in the autumn, so do check dates on their website to avoid any disappointment).
water sports junkies will love the water sports centre and sailing school in nearby Rock on the Camel estuary.

Not far from Port Isaac, St Kew is a small village – the first recorded in Cornwall! - on the north Cornish coast. The village church dates from the fifteenth century and is home to some remarkable stained glass windows. Also in St Kew is a traditional village pub and a golf course, and there is a donkey sanctuary at St Kew Highway. The St Kew Inn also dates from the fifteenth century, and boasts a lovely open fire in winter and a pretty beer garden for sunshine drinks in the summer. There are some lovely walks in the countryside surrounding St Kew, including a circular route through the river valleys.
