Property Location

Tretawn Farmhouse is situated just east of St Kew Highway and equidistant between two of Cornwalls oldest villages, St Tudy and St Kew. St Kew has history dating back to the 6th century when it was mentioned in the "Life of St Samson," a saint who travelled over the seas from Wales. There is a stunning stone pub, the St Kew Inn, nestled at the bottom of the valley, a perfect location for a nice meal or a quiet drink. St Tudy is a quaint Cornish village, the church around which the village was built, was first constructed in the 6th century and then rebuilt in the 11th, 15th and latterly 19th centuries, the village has been built around the original Celtic circular raised graveyard - known locally as "God's Acre!" St Tudy is believed to be the birthplace of Captain Bligh of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame! The St Tudy Inn (formerly the Cornish Arms) will welcome you in for a refreshing drink, a hearty meal or both!

Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.

Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is the perfect base, being the half way point, from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.

The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps. Or if you fancy something different try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world and their sparkling wines are truly stunning, having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed!

Bodmin Moor is a couple of miles away to the East and is dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. Bodmin Moor has engendered fear and awe throughout history and hence provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. Standing stones, burial chambers, clapper bridges cottages and farms across the moor give a hint of the 4000 years of human development ever since Bronze Age farmers first arrived.

Port Isaac is about 4 miles to the North West and this has recently been the base of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, there are a good selection of cafes shops and pubs. Further up the coast there are all of the golden beaches and coves between Polzeath and Tintagel with some of the best surf in Europe.

Bodmin lies a few miles to South West and has a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

Everything was especially good.

Treetawn Farmhouse was beyond my expectation. The house was quirky but very homely, warm and special. The beds were especially comfortable. Lots of hot water for the several bathrooms and beautiful curtains in the bedrooms. Everywhere was very clean and a second fridge helpful. Equipment excellent . In fact nothing to complain about. The swimming pool and games room were a very welcome addition. We walked in the garden and woods when the weather permitted. The house is a perfect place for a family get together. We all had a wonderful holiday and want to return!

Tretawn provided absolutely everything we wanted for our birthday/anniversary celebrations. The house was spotless, fully equipped and homely. Loads of space (inside and out) for all of us and everyone had fun in the pool and games room.

From the Owner:
