  • "A really lovely place to stay in a great setting, close to some great beaches and Falmouth."

    The property has lots of great facilities, lovely comfy beds, and very hospitable owners.

  • "We absolutely loved the location and the apartment, the owners are also lovely however the extra touches and finishing just weren’t there."

    Cobwebs, no hand soap or spare toilet rolls, not as clean and facilities were shut even though no additional covid measures were in place anywhere! It felt like they didn’t really want to look after the communal areas which were the main reason we booked this. Also I do think the hot tub fee should be included in the price. To pay £40 for us all on top of the booking price for just the hot tub, no robes as advertised and no changing facilities we thought was a bit too much. This place was great to stay at but it felt a bit rushed between Christmas and new year. Attention to detail and use of the facilities (or at least notice that they were closed) would make this 5 star!

  • "We had fabulous time here, Argal is in a beautiful area with access & views directly onto the Reservoir."

    Fabulous location for this area of Cornwall with easy access to other areas, the accommodation is clean, comfortable and welcoming. We took our dog and found the 'dog friendly' small paddock an extra benefit. The Games room too was an unexpected but great addition. All in all a great short break and if we are in the area again would definitely use again. Loved the resident Goats and Horse too.

  • "Argal was a perfect base for our holiday and we had a fabulous week there."

    We loved the furnishings and decor in Argal which we found to be comfortable, well-equipped, spacious and very homely too. It was great to be greeted by friendly goats and vocal Dexter cattle after a day walking the Cornish coastal paths, and what a bonus to have Argal Lake on the doorstep, providing a lovely Sunday morning stroll down through the fields. Treverva Farm is a great place to stay to explore the Helford area and the Lizard Peninsula, and we look forward to returning some day.

  • "Treverva Farm is a beautiful location, with superb accommodation."

    The walk around Argal reservoir each morning with the dog was one of the high points of the holiday. The location is not far from any of the beaches, which makes Treverva an ideal launching point without too much driving. The farm was exceptionally dog friendly and has a safe exercise field in which to take your dog. All in all we had a fantastic week's stay and would recommend it to anyone. A big thanks to Ian and Michaela for making us so welcome.

  • "From the minute we arrived, we knew we had picked the right cottage for our holiday."

    Ian, Michaela, Lewis and of course all the animals made us feel so welcome. The cottage is stunning and finished to the highest standard. You have everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The farm is amazing and I dare anyone not to fall in love with Willie and Billie the goats! Iggy our cocker spaniel, loved going to see them and the beautiful Dexter calves and running around with Marlowe, the resident springer. The bar on the farm complete with pool table is a really great touch and all the drinks are priced really well. The location is excellent and so easy to reach some amazing places in Cornwall. There are great dog walking areas and beaches within a few miles and all the local pubs offer amazing food. We will definitely be back!

  • "The flat was well equipped and in a wonderful location."

    A car is needed but the centre of Falmouth is only a 10-minute drive. There is a great view of Argal lake which is accessed directly from the property. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. For our 7-year old there was a trampoline she could use and a great dog, Marlow, who she adored. It’s a quiet escape but close enough to many places of interest, so the best of both worlds. We would definitely recommend and are planning when we can go back again.

  • "The holiday home was lovely and decorated to a high standard."

    We were met by Ian who was so welcoming and showed us around. We couldn't have asked for nicer accommodation. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was immaculate. There was a welcoming hamper when we arrived with bread, eggs, tea, coffee, sugar and some milk in the fridge. The cottage is on a farm so from the bedroom window you can see the horses which my 2 year old thought was amazing. There are really friendly goats, cows and two dogs, one of which (Marlow) was so fond of my daughter he would follow her around and they would play together in the grounds. The communal washing machine and dryer were a godsend. There is a really nice on site bar as well which we made use of. We would stay again, it was such a lovely place to stay and in an ideal location for travelling around Cornwall. Sarah, Mike & Rosie

    The owners are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help if they can. It’s like home from home. The accommodation was just perfect for us (family of four) and the owners pets and farm animals added very much to our entertainment. We loved every minute of it and would highly recommend it.

    Clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished apartment. Friendly, accommodating and hospitable owners. Private pub is a bonus - especially if staying as a group or if other friendly guests are in the other apartments. Conveniently located for fantastic local towns, beaches and scenery. Be prepared to drive for pubs/restaurants/shops - but worth it.

About the location


Falmouth 9 miles; Truro 14 miles.

A charmingly picturesque country village with a few shops, a pub and a lovely church, set among green rolling meadows and wooded valleys leading down to the beautiful Helford river, just 3 miles away. Famous for its mild climate, this quieter part of Cornwall has the outstanding gardens of Trebah, Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Carwinion all within 4 miles. For nature lovers and those who enjoy boats, the misty reaches of the Helford river meander upstream to Gweek, where the world renowned Seal Sanctuary looks after the region’s many abandoned and injured seals. Falmouth, with its narrow streets, natural harbour and National Maritime Museum is just 20 minutes by car, while Flambards theme park (8 miles) and Argal Lake with its water sports attractions make great days out. The nearby beautiful Lizard Peninsula, with its outstanding beaches and quaint fishing villages dotting the rocky coastline, has the benefit of outstanding scenery, tranquillity and some great walks.
