About the Owner

I (Carey Bruton) live at Trevadlock Manor with my husband Mickey and two children, Rory (18) and Lucy (16) and our menagerie of animals, Willy the dog (pointer/Vizsla cross - our 3rd child), two cats, two horses, two pygmy goats and two geckos! I grew up in Cornwall and Mickey who's originally from Essex came to know it and love Cornwall he's as much a local as I am. We all love this area of Cornwall on the edge of the moor in a completely unspoilt part yet within easy reach of both north and south coasts. It is our aim that guests who stay in our 4 star dog friendly accommodation set in 25 acres, get the most out of their holiday and see and enjoy the best that the county has to offer. We therefore are happy to recommend places to visit, eat, drink, walk, run, ride, sail, surf etc.

Peaceful central location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very early but the owners did their very best to accommodate us, storing our luggage and giving us information on where to buy groceries. The location is very quiet and you do really need a car to get to most places, we didn't find a pub or restaurant within easy walking distance, however don't let that put you off as there are plenty of places to visit, eat and drink a short drive away. We stayed at The Dairy, which was clean and well equipped. There is a decked area with table, chairs and BBQ which we used frequently, there are also lovely walks and plenty for children to explore. The central location makes this place ideal for visiting both sides of north Cornwall and south Devon. I can recommend horseriding (lowertokenbury), Karting (karting world nr the airport), The Eliot Arms (good pub food), Looe (for plenty of cream teas!). Padstow was absolutely packed, I feel it's over done and loosing it's charm.

All in all, we had a great time at this lovely little place, made special by really nice, friendly, professional owners.

From the Owner

Mickey and I fell in love with the land as much as we did with the house. I grew up on the South Coast of Cornwall approx. 45 minutes away, which is beautiful too but very busy. Neither of us knew this area at all and we continue to be particularly struck by how unspoilt it really is. Visitors tend to hammer on past on their way to the coast and this part is overlooked. As a result it retains a magical forgotten quality - as Cornwall used to be I imagine. The land is particularly beautiful, meadows roll steeply down to the River Lynher which trickles along sleepily in the valley. Magnificent oaks dot the valley, wild hedges, green lanes & woods eventually open up onto the moor. Despite being so remote it's only 1.1/2 miles from the A30 and easy to reach every part of Cornwall.

From the Owner

All our properties are characterful and comfortable. The wing of the house has ample space for relaxing and entertaining, and its unique atmosphere owes much to its Swedish interior designers. The cottages are converted from a row of C19th barns, and the upstairs living areas, mostly open to the rafters, are particularly light and airy. To those who know the moor, this side is considered to be the most interesting, with dramatic Tors and a plethora of interesting historic sites to take in as you walk ancient green lanes and footpaths. We sail on the South Coast, surf on the North- within half an hour either way. We are struck by the number of guests who comment how easy it is to get anywhere from here- and how nice it is to get back. Some people never seem to leave the place.
