About John and Leslie Farah Church

From the moment we first saw Tresowes Green Cottage we knew we had found a gem and it was a place we wanted to both live and to share with others. The peacefulness of this setting by the Wheal Grey Lake and its closeness to the spectacular coastline with its glorious beaches, hidden coves and wonderful amenities make it a wonderful place to live and visit.

Since opening our accommodation to guests in 2012, by offering two holiday lets in Cornwall, The Barn and The Cottage, which makes self catering holidays unique, we have been fortunate to welcome wonderful guests from all over the world, many of whom have returned and regard Tresowes Green as their second home.

Tresowes is located within a World Heritage Site due to its history of mining for tin, copper and china clay as well as its outstanding beauty. The hamlet itself is very quiet with only 48 dwellings, each set apart, providing privacy. There are numerous award winning restaurants within easy distance so we would recommend guests have a car to maximise their enjoyment.

We are very conveniently located to visit such attractions as Porthleven, St Michael's Mount, Marazion, St Ives, Penzance, The Lizard, Lands End, Minack Theatre, Poldark Mine, numerous Gardens, Beaches and the Coastal Path.

Fantastic cottage in a lovely setting to relax.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second long weekend visit to the cottage with our daughter and dog. Always a very cheery welcome on arrival with an essentials welcome pack waiting in the kitchen. The cottage is homely, warm, comfortable, clean, well furnished and Wi-Fi. The log burner is great for making evenings in even more special. The beds are very comfortable with good quality linen and duvets. We love the cottage grounds, which are very well maintained, picturesque with plenty of room. Lots of great walks along the cliffs and beaches are all nearby as are some great pubs and cafes. A return visit is planned.

Lovely cottage in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a fantastic week staying at the cottage.....was welcomed by Leslie and Johnny and made to feel very much at home .Cottage is beautiful both inside and out with a lovely outside seating / BBQ area which we made full use of as the weather was fabulous all week....included within the cottage is a dishwasher and washing machine which was great and saved a lot of time washing up !!....Gardens are beautiful and very relaxing and you also have the bonus of a well stocked lake for those fishermen out there......Very close by car to lots of lovely beaches and I would definitely recommend Kynance cove ( but go at low tide)

Will definitely return and thourougly recommend
