About Trevor Plumbley

Trevor & Gill Plumbley. Married with 3 children, one grandson and several horses !

In a previous life we were a mechanical engineer and a teacher respectively but we are now retired!

Having lived and worked overseas for many years we are now happy to be back home with the family and thoroughly enjoying the British countryside.

Trevor Plumbley purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Trevor Plumbley chose Linkinhorne

We purchased Jupiter Lodge on the fringes of Bodmin Moor to have riding holidays there with our horses. It has a paddock and stabling which is ideal for us.

Jupiter Lodge not only has good accommodation, which instantly appealed to us when we first saw it, but is also a great place from which to explore Cornwall on or off horseback ! It is enjoyed by all of our three daughters !

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the stunning views from the Lodge and walking and riding in the surrounding countryside and on the moor.

We also enjoy walking to the local pub, The Manor Inn at Rilla Mill, and going to Stert's open air theatre in Upton Cross, just up the road !

Jupiter Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Lovely lodge & location. Peaceful, unspoilt views & within easy reach of beaches or attractions such as Eden project etc. The attention to detail was great...Everything from tea bags to toiletries! The layout with 3 bathrooms made it very easy for 2 families holidaying together. The accessibility was especially handy for us ( downstairs bedroom & wet room). Wifi was a little hit & miss due to the rural area, but it mostly worked for our needs.

Wonderful welcome from Ken & Muriel. We would happily stay again!
