The property

Trelan is a luxurious and elegant period cottage, stuffed with character and just a short drive to sandy beaches, charming fishing villages, exotic gardens and foodie-fit restaurants. Tucked away in the pretty rural village of St Ewe, two miles from stunning St Austell Bay on the Cornish Riviera, it offers a varied holiday experience combined with the chance to relax and unwind.


This beautifully finished family-sized home sits in a peaceful setting with far reaching countryside views to the rear and a 15th century church and 16th century inn and restaurant within paces. The historic fishing village of Mevagissey with its sandy beach, the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and Pentewen Beach and valley trail with cycle hire are all less than a 10 minute drive. A little farther afield is the world famous Eden Project with its rain forest biomes, the maritime town of Fowey with independent shops and harbour front restaurants and pubs and the iconic port of Charlestown, renowned for its tall ships and for the filming of the BBC's Poldark series.


Scenic walks can commence from the front door, along footpaths leading from the village through mellow countryside or along the nearby coast path. Return from rambling escapades to a delicious supper of local fare at the inn before basking on plump settees beside the comforting wood burner in the sitting room amid velvety cushions and a Reindeer fur throw. Designed for families and with practicality in mind, there are two sitting rooms, two bathrooms and four TV's. The combination of cool white walls, local art, wooden shutters, gorgeous beams, rug topped wood floors, vintage treasures, latch doors and deep set windows is the signature look throughout. The kitchen has everything you need to get creative with local produce from the village farm shop and vineyards on your doorstep. The bedrooms have a strong romantic presence with sumptuous textiles, decorative wall coverings, deep mattresses and candles. Outside is an enclosed garden with a lawn and sheltered patio for barbecues and alfresco meals as well as off-road and garage parking.
