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.

Totally idealic. Delightful little cottage set in THE most stunning gardens. The owners are just as delightful and very welcoming. They have thought of everything for you to enjoy your stay. Lovely little touches everywhere. We would return at the drop of a hat despite plenty of room at our friend's house. It's such a special place.

A lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well looked after and beautifully located in well kept gardens and overlooking a lake. We received a friendly welcome from the owners who were very helpful throughout our stay. In Praa Sands we were ideally placed to explore all around Cornwall.

Beautiful property, in a lovely setting. Our hosts were helpful and friendly, especially when a midnight medical emergency arose, Leslie couldn't have been more helpful. Attention to detail within the property was incredible with a very generous welcome basket awaiting our arrival. Tresowes was the perfect location from which to explore Cornwall and we will definitely be returning to stay here again. While there are plenty of high quality eateries in close proximity, we found ourselves returning in the evening after a busy day exploring to light the BBQ and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of this most special home. Thank you for letting us share your special home and gardens guys x
