About the property

Converted Mill in Treviades, Nr. Constantine, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, Very Close To The Helford River

Treviades Melyn is a 4 bedroom newly converted granite mill that occupies a stunning position high above the riverside hamlet of Port Navas, with magnificent, far reaching views over the Lizard that can be appreciated from every room in the house. Across the cobbled drive, where there's ample parking space, is an additional, optional twin bedroom above the games room, making overall capacity 10 guests. The large south facing garden is a gently sloping lawn, so bags of space for everyone to relax or enjoy more energetic activities. The property is a stunning example of traditional quality workmanship combined with a luxuriously simple interior full of light and character. Fabulous kitchen, exposed beams, oak staircase and floor, and a comfortable, spacious living area. Upstairs each bedroom has been individually styled with doors opening onto Juliet balconies. Situated in a peaceful rural area, but within easy reach of the village of Constantine, our house makes for a memorable holiday. Quality In Tourism has awarded Treviades Melyn 4 Star Gold for exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service.

About Carol Cross

David and Carol Cross are the lucky owners of Treviades Melyn. We currently live in Dorset, with 2 miniature dachshunds who love visiting Cornwall as much as we do.

Carol Cross purchased this barn in 2007

Why Carol Cross chose Truro & Falmouth area

David went to school in Cornwall and his family live there, so when the opportunity arose of having our own place, we jumped at it. Even in its derelict state this building was magnificent. The renovation project was 2 years in the planning and building, but we recently finished in the summer of 2009. We've taken a huge amount of care in transforming this wonderful building into a comfortable home and are looking forward to making it our permanent home as soon as we can give up our day jobs. Until that time arrives, we'll share it with you.

What makes this barn unique

We find the house and area very calming and relaxing. Looking out at the 180 degree view of fields and the Helford River you feel a million miles away from the bustle of every day life. But it's a very convenient location to reach civilization quickly. In the summer it's just wonderful to laze in the sun on the very private terrace, or go out on a boat on the river and explore the tiny coves. Equally in the winter, there's nothing better than lighting the log burner and settling down to a good DVD.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An absolutely lovely place, it's big, luxurious and well appointed. Our group had 6 adults 3 kids and a dog and it felt like there was still plenty of room. The kids loved the play room and we all enjoyed the big garden. It's in a beautiful, secluded location but close enough to shops and what-not. Great service from the owners too. All-in-all highly recommended.-Ian

Treviades Melyn is a beautiful house in a stunning location. Restored to the highest standard, we had everything we could wish for and only minutes from the beautiful Helford River, we felt we never needed to travel any further afield! We cannot rate it highly enough and will be back for sure! The Leney's

Seldom in my experience has a holiday let truly met expectations - Treviades Melyn is the exception. It's combination of modern luxury and convenien, location, fabulous views, and thoughtful living space make it an outstanding base from which to relax or explore. Andy M

Stunning property, great owners, Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a week for a family holiday and had an amazing time. We had two children under 2, 4 dogs and 6 adults and the accommodation suited our every need. We were delighted with how well equipped the house was with kitchenware, games, books and basically everything we needed for our stay (definitely won't need to pack as much next time!). It was great to stay somewhere that tended to every detail especially with having young children. The grounds are stunning and very well maintained - our dogs and children thoroughly enjoyed playing in the garden and we enjoyed dining al fresco even in September!

The house is superb in terms of layout as there was more than enough room for all of us without getting on top of each other. The property is clearly well maintained by the owners which in turn gave us a sense of pride during our stay.

The communication from Carol was brilliant in the lead up to our stay. She was more than helpful with providing dog and child friendly places to visit which was so useful for us to save us being disappointed on days out. We ate at several of the recommended restaurants and we were not disappointed. (The Ferryboat Inn was particularly good!) We can also highly recommend visiting Perranporth for the day as it is only 40 mins away in the car and the beach is dog friendly (outside of July & August) and is simply stunning!

Thank you Carol for providing such fantastic accommodation - we will definitely be looking to book again if you'll have us!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay. We were a party of eight adults and two toddlers. We had plenty of room to gather together as a group (e.g. round the large kitchen table) but also have our own space when desired.

The decor and cleanliness were excellent. The kitchen was well equipped and a great place to make and eat lunch/dinner.

One couple stayed in the room in the separate building across the courtyard which has its own ensuite shower room. The games room beneath was a great place to play ping pong and darts.

The garden is very large and very well kept, with great views. The toddlers loved running up and down the garden.

We were easily able to park four cars in the courtyard.

Seal sanctuary was a good local attraction.

All who stayed agreed it was a great place, and we expect to return in the future. Felt like a home from home.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning property, with beautiful gardens. It is so peaceful all you can hear are the bees buzzing around the flowers and the birds in the trees. We had such a relaxing week here we really didn't want to go home, helped by fabulous weather.

There was nothing that we disliked or were disappointed with at this house. Carol rang us on our arrival night to check everything was okay. There were fresh flowers, local apple juice, eggs and biscuits left as a welcome gift.

The house is very comfortable, and everything is high end including the bedding.

We cannot recommend this place enough. We are fortunate to have travelled extensively throughout the world and we can honestly say this is one of the best holidays we have ever had. Thank you Carol and David. We are looking for dates for next year to return.
