  • "We cannot fault Treverva Farm."

    Our accommodation was amazing. Everything you could possibly need, beautifully clean and a wonderful location. Great facilities on site, tennis court, hot tub, table tennis, darts, pool table, trampoline, bbq area, dog friendly plus the resident farm animals. Only 3 holiday lets on site so very peaceful and quiet. We had many fun days out but our children couldn't wait to get back to the farm again. Perfect holiday for us all. The children already asking when we can go back again !! Cannot rate this place highly enough. We all had a lovely holiday. Thank you to all at Treverva Farm.

  • "Spacious accommodation and well equipped."

    Friendly owners who live on-site. Sitting room kitchen area has good views across hills to Argal reservoir. Goats, horses, cows, hens and grass tennis court, trampoline places to wander or sit and barbecue outside. Table tennis, pool and darts inside make for a good holiday! (Hot-tub also available, check website)

  • "Found the property very tranquil and great for a family, however the maintenance of the property could do with a little updating ie extractor fans in bathrooms not working , also very annoying when opening the fridge door the freezer door would open with it not lined up correctly."

    we also had a problem with cracked toilet seat which when mentioned was tackled right away . the problems were small and didn’t effect our holiday lovely spot with great views.

  • "Lovely break."

    Friendly owners very accommodating, and kids loves the fact there were animals. Only down side was the additional cost for use of the hot tub. It’s charged on a weekly basis, as we were only there for a weekend it proved quite costly for our party of 8. Also lovely little bar area , great idea and we loved using it but it was cold as radiator didn’t seem to work… tricky as we stayed in November..!!! We would def stay again.

  • "Listed as 2 beds upstairs and 2 down when in fact it is 3 down and 1 up."

    cooker is a convection hob so your don't take your own pans unless you are sure they will work I usually take my pressure cooker. take 50p's if you want to use the pool table. We had a superb stay here with friends, everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. everyone is more than happy to recommend and intends to return in the near future. We enjoyed the cream tea left out for our arrival.

  • "Very spacious."

    Good beds. Modern bathrooms and kitchen. Beautiful views. Short drive to wonderful seaside villages and Falmouth. Facilities were the biggest plus- hot tub overlooking the valley, tennis, table tennis, bbq kits, darts, games, trampoline and animals for kids. Although the house had been cleaned and fittings are modern, there were quite a few areas that need some minor repair/ scrub to keep 5 star standard.

  • "Excellent holiday cottage and very comfortable."

    Lots of extra amenities which was great too. The only things to watch out for is that the living spaces are upstairs and the steps aren’t particularly great for young toddlers but the accommodation as a whole was great for toddlers - high chair, travel cot, animals on site, trampoline etc. We would definitely return! The owners were extremely friendly and helpful with local knowledge.

  • "I would definitely recommend staying at the Helford Cottage at Treverva Farm."

    The owners are so welcoming, they left some bread, butter and eggs for us and also they were very helpful as I needed to do two lots of washings (lots of towels and swimwear) and because the shared dryer was not working they kindly took in the washing and put it in their own dryer for us. The cottage is great - the beds are so comfortable and the addition of being able to play table tennis and pool was great for the boys in the evening. This is a great location for exploring Cornwall and also very close to Falmouth for restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to Cornwall.

  • "A large family gathering and room for all."

    All of our expectations met and all we needed for a comfortable stay. A beautiful outlook over the lake which also provided a lovely walk through the woods. The area has something for everyone, The beaches are not overcrowded and are interesting, with fish and crabs for the little one's to catch, the countryside is just as nice. I am disabled but managed to get about there and the clean air made breathing much easier. I managed a slow walk for almost a mile, when in London I cant manage more than 50yds. All in all a great holiday but would have liked a second week as there is so much to explore. Will do that next year.

  • "A beautiful property with everything we needed for a perfect family holiday."

    Ian, Michaela & Lewis made us very welcome on Treverva Farm which is set in an idyllic location on the edge of Argal Lake. It was also perfectly situated for us to be able to visit many of our favourite places; Padstow, Perranporth, St Ives, St Michael's Mount, The Lizard Peninsula and less than five minutes drive to the lovely beaches of Swanpool and Gillynvase in Falmouth. We would certainly recommend Halford and the other two smaller apartments at Treverva Farm and hope we will return again soon.

  • "Myself and 7 others stayed in the Helford cottage for 3 nights."

    Lovely location, with a short walk down to the river where there is a small cafe called Wild Vibes where we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. The cottage was close to both Truro and Falmouth, and was big enough for all 8 of us comfortably. Upon arrival, we had a hamper of bread, eggs and butter, plus there was ice in the freezer which was excellent. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen was lovely and modern and there was an excellent view from the first floor. The only negative comment I would make is that the kitchen sides had crumbs on them from the previous tennants when we arrived, and the bathrooms could have had a slightly deeper clean, but other than that the cottage was lovely and clean and homely. The hosts left us to it for the stay, and kindly heated up some hot water for drinks on the last morning as there was a power cut in the area. We were incredibly happy with the stay and would definitely come back! Thank you

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.
