Take advantage of this unique opportunity to stay in one of Cornwalls finest country homes and enjoy a relaxed holiday by the sea.  Trewidden House has opened it's doors to welcome smaller families and friends groups offering indulgent comfort and Cornish countryside charm amidst the breathtaking grounds and interior style of this very special home.  4 beautiful bedrooms each offer a boutique style with the finest linens and luxury fabrics to complement.  The grounds, including full sized tennis court, are simply stunning and the perfect backdrop to your tranquil holiday.

The Property

A warm welcome awaits, wonderful artwork and unique treasures combine with a relaxed style of living thoughout.  Guests will enjoy the heritage and charm of this majestic home yet feel right at home amidst the generous living spaces and country style kitchen all kitted out for holiday life from formal celebrations in the grand dining room to lazy breakfasts around the kitchen table.   Five beautifully styled bedrooms offer a blissful haven after a day on the coast choose from two double rooms, a super-king bedded room (this can be split into a twin if needed) and two twin bedded rooms located on the first floor and accessed via the grand staircase.  The bathrooms are no less sizeable and ensure the perfect pamper.

The property was excellently maintained and the housekeeper made us feel very welcome. This all made a big event very special. We will definitely be returning.

The grounds of Trewidden House are a gardeners dream! a diverse range of shrubberies disperse the majestic trees that stand tall, gracefully encircling the grounds in a protective manner.  A private and secure tennis court is hidden away just offset from the long driveway with plenty of grassy areas surrounding the court, making it an ideal little spot for a picnic.  Following the gravelled pathway under an archway of mature trees leads to the enormous main lawn.  The focal point is a beautiful granite and brass sculpture which stands delicately at the front of the garden while a marvellous red brick wall defines the right hand side boundary, complete with Secret Garden style gate.  Children will adore a game or two of hide and seek in this safe environment whilst parents relax on the lawn.

Guests staying at Trewidden House receive FREE entry to Trewidden Gardens, highly acclaimed as one of "The Great Gardens of Cornwall".  Originally planted by the current owners' ancestor, Thomas Bolitho in the 19th Century, the 15 acre garden incorporates a magnificent collection of over 300 Camellias and Magnolias alongside one of the largest tree fern dells in Europe.  Other attractions include organised tours of the gardens and a tea room.  A must visit during your stay!

The pics on the site were so good that we were afraid the reality would be less impressive, this was not the case the house was in great shape! Very impressive in fact! Well done! I will book it again one day !

We have rented a few properties with Cornish Gems and its always been easy and a pleasure. The staff in the office are very good at communicating. I have recommended you to lots of friends and we have booked the house for NY 2018-2019.

Cornish Gems provided an outstanding service by simplifying the transaction process and providing us with a handy information pack that helped a lot. Trewidden House is an outstanding property that exceeded our expectations. My wife, kids and the grandparents all had a very enjoyable stay.

This is the first property I have booked through Cornish Gems but if they are all up to this standard then I will certainly be using the company again.
