Trevadlock Manor is in an extremely convenient location, very easily reached by car, only a few minutes south of the A30, just west of Launceston, just 45 minutes from the M5 at Exeter. The scenery is quite breathtaking and you will be absorbed as soon as you have left the main road into the beauty of this edge of moorland location. A really central location in Cornwall, you have so much to see within easy reach. The brilliant beaches at Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay are just over 30 minutes drive to the north and the quintessential Cornish harbour town of Looe is 40 minutes to the south. The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on your doorstep and Dartmoor is around 45 minutes away should you wish to cross the border.
The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it’s a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall’s highest point, the heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall’s stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein’s empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.

Everything about our stay in The West Wing was lovely. Beautiful accomodation, very comfortable and in a lovely location. Returning next year
Guest from London stayed for 3 nights.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the West Wing- the hosts could not have been more hospitable! Dolly baked us a massive cake, which we polished off quickly! The house was very comfortable for 5 adults- we didn't mind the triple sharing room, and the bathrooms were great! Excellent collection of books, a nice large lounge area, and a modern kitchen. Great value for money- and I highly recommend it!
Thank you for your kind words and I am pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to meet you. I would be grateful if you would let me know which areas needed extra cleaning so that I can rectify this.
Guest from Cambridge stayed for 7 nights.
Very spacious and clean. however one of the single beds mattress is very uncomfortable. the heating system was not working for 2 days which resulted in loss of hot water once the hot water tank emptied.
Thank you for your feedback. I was very sorry to read of your concerns. All the beds in the cottages were replaced in 2016 for which previously we have had nothing but praise. The problem with the heating and water was easily resolved once we fully understood that it was not just the water. I am sorry that you did not mention these to us immediately as we were only next door. We pride ourselves on being here to help.
Guest from Ashford stayed for 7 nights.
The west wing was a delight. We loved our stay would not hesitate to return. The owners were really friendly and helpful too.
Guest from Tonbridge stayed for 14 nights.
We spent two weeks at Trevladock Manor staying in The West Wing at the end of August. Quite simply it was wonderful from start to finish. The West Wing is huge with plenty of room for my husband and I and are two teenagers to spread out and make ourselves at home. The lounge/drawing/dining room is a very big size with plenty of comfortable seating options and a large dining table. The kitchen is small but provides all that you need (I understand this is to be refitted very soon). The downstairs toilet the had room for our walking boots and macs and also housed the washing machine in a discreet cupboard. Upstairs the bedrooms were again large and extremely comfortable. We all slept very well. The bed in the double room must be at least super Kingsize as all four of us fitted on it comfortably (yes we had to try it!). The two bathrooms upstairs I believe had been recently updated and were high quality. The shower in the main bathroom was excellent and very powerful. Both baths were large and comfortable. The outside balcony area leading off the main bedroom was lovely and gets the evening sun. The outside seating area is close to the kitchen which was useful for BBQ mealtimes. The newly created games room in a barn opposite the cottages was an excellent unexpected discovery and we spent many a happy half hour in the evening trying to play pool or table tennis. There are pleasant walks through the fields down to the river (steep up hill afterwards!) with a picnic table. David and Dolly are excellent hosts. There was a home made cake waiting for us on our arrival and they were easily on hand if we needed them but allowed us space to ourselves. Trevadlock is a very quiet location yet only 5 minutes from the main A30 between Launceston and Bodmin. The north coast was about half an hour away and south coast around 40 minutes both with lots of different beaches to explore. There are many things to explore within an hour of the property - not least beautiful walks on Bodmin Moor. There are too many places to list everything but a couple of local highlights - Golitha Falls (excellent ice cream/coffee stop called Inkies in the car park); the village called Minions where there is easy parking for walking on the Moors around the Cheesering and Stowes Hil (where we came across an adder!). There are a couple of tearooms for cake/ice cream afterwards in Minions; The Tamar Otter Sanctuary - small but plenty to see with otters, owls, peacocks, deer and wallabies roaming around (get there for one of the talks/feeding times) - there is a lovely onsite tearoom where they make excellent cakes on the premises. If we return to Cornwall, we will certainly book The West Wing again. I highly recommend it.
Guest from Kettering stayed for 5 nights.
The West Wing at Trevadlock is charming. A lovely cottage with plenty of space. Very clean and looks exactly as the photographs suggest. We used it as a base as we traveled around Cornwall during the day. It was lovely to 'come home' every evening knowing we were going to have a very comfortable night's sleep. The facilities in and around the Cottage were lovely but sadly we did not have the time to explore the nearby river and grounds in which the cottage stands. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay, both for a holiday or somewhere to go with a larger group of friends or family as there are adjacent cottages on the same complex. There is a lovely large room in The West Wing for large sociable dinners and entertaining.
Guest from Alcester stayed for 4 nights.
I stayed in the west wing of Trevadlock Manor for four nights with my wife, 5 year old son, mother in law and brother in law in July. The rooms were fantastic and the facilities superb. The bed in the master suite was probably the best I've slept in for my entire life. I meant to ask the make and model of the mattress to buy for myself at home but forgot. Both my wife and I have never slept so comfortably when away from home. The local area is lovely and emergency supplies only a mile away on the A30 at the petrol station and shop. All in all although it's only just inside the border of Cornwall it's a great base for exploring the county or for sitting and relaxing in peace and quiet. Definitely a 5/5 score from me.
Guest from Edinburgh stayed for 7 nights.
We had an excellent holiday. The accommodation was beautiful and David and Dolly were brilliant hosts. Very dog friendly and we would recommend staying here as a family or as a getaway. Brilliant!
Guest from Hummelo stayed for 7 nights.
Luxuriously rural in a fine and comfortably decorated old farmhouse/manor. A tranquil hideaway with many beautiful natural and cultural things to see at close hand. Hosts David and Dolly are very warmly, open and hospitable people. A lovely place to spend more time and unwind.
Guest from Kendal stayed for 7 nights.
We booked The West Wing at Trevadlock Manor for a family get together because of its easy access to the A30 and the North Cornwall coast, but more importantly the great dog friendly reviews we found on-line. We were not disappointed!!! David and Dolly the owners were more than helpful, really friendly and Trevadlock Manor is something quite special. A real gem! The builders were in next door whilst we were there, upgrading some of the other cottages, but this was not an inconvenience. They look to be doing a really good job on what is a great property. We loved the thought that had been put into providing a really safe dog exercise area and also the opportunity to explore down through the fields to the river. If you want to be right by the beach this clearly is not the property for you, but if you have a car and are prepared to drive to discover Cornwall's gems like Trebarwith Strand (check the tides first) and Daymer Bay it is ideal. There are some good pubs nearby too. We loved the Rising Sun at Alturnun which is a 10 minute drive away. We like staying in new places when we go away, but I have no doubt we will be back at Trevadlock. I'd like to say "Don't book it ~ leave it free for us" but I can't !!!! Thanks for a great stay. 5 stars all round.
Guest from Woking stayed for 7 nights.
This was a late booking just three weeks before departure and we couldn't be more pleased with our choice. We had a warm and friendly welcome on arrival by the owners, who waited for us to arrive before leaving for a break of their own. The building was fascinating, with a history going back hundreds of years. There was an enormous main living/dining room and a stunning large bedroom upstairs with a very comfortable double bed. Two other bedrooms were big and looked comfortable as well, but we didn't use them as there were only two of us. (The low occupancy discount was a very helpful and welcome idea). There were acres of fenced fields that belong to the property leading down to a pretty valley and stream for us to excecise our dogs. At the time of our visit there were no livestock so our dogs could run free, but It's possible they may be introduced in the future. Just 5 minutes from the A30, a village store and a couple of pubs within 3 miles. There were also 5 converted stables/barns adjacent to the main house which are available to rent We have rented cottages two or three times a year for many years and The West Wing comes at the top of our favourite places to stay.
Guest from Horsham stayed for 7 nights.
Excellent facilities, everything you could want and beautifully presented. Comfortable beds, sofas and very well equipped kitchen. Only downside was the shower. Country walk through the gate at the rear of the property down to a stream was breathtaking and very enjoyable. Perfectly situated for exploring.
Guest from Haverfordwest stayed for 7 nights.
One of the best holiday properties we've stayed in. The beds were so comfortable that we had trouble getting our teenage sons out of them! There's lots to see and do in the area and it's perfectly placed for visiting both north and south coasts. Many thanks to Dolly and David for a lovely stay!
