Guestbook comments from the owner

'We have stayed at Tregray for the past 2 summers. Its simply a great place to be. Wonderful house, with everything you could need (fab bed linen, fully equipped kitchen etc) and also fabulous garden for both adults and kids......A real home away from home - and yet so much more stylish than my own home! Overall we couldn't recommend staying here highly enough.' Debi



'Very close to the coast, pubs and shops. Perfect! A little gem.'

Great house, terrifying caretaker

  • 3 of 5

We had one very nice day at this lovely house in Cornwall before things went very very wrong. Most unfortunately, we were careless and somehow lost the keys. It was late in the evening and we needed to get our children (aged five and under) into bed. We searched and searched but simply could not find the keys. Feeling very embarrassed and apologetic, we called the caretakers of the house and asked if they could come and let us in.

One of the two caretakers came in due course but she brought with her a barrage of angry abuse. She drove up to our car in a manner that made us think she must crash into it - we both winced as she braked. She burst out her car and began shouting at us, asking how we had lost the keys, where were they, how could we be so stupid and inconsiderate etc etc. She did let us into the house but continued with a tirade of anger and abuse. We finally had to ask her to leave. She hurled obscenities at us as she departed.

We were extremely shaken and actually felt as though we would not be able to remain at the property as we felt unsafe. In addition, this unpleasant scene was witnessed by our three small children. We had very pleasant dealings with the owner, who is lovely and the house is great, but we can't recommend staying here as you may have to deal with the caretaker. We never received an apology from her for her appalling and unprofessional behaviour.

Owner's Response: This was a most upsetting and unprecedented event for all concerned and was discussed at length. We were very sorry that it caused such distress. We now have a completely new team of caretakers at Tregray. Having rented the house for many years without any cause for complaint or concern, all our previous reviews have been entirely favourable and many families return to us year after year telling us they love the house as much as we do. It remains a much loved home in a beautiful place.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry this happened. We have never had any incidents like this before or after. I spoke at length to all involved and it was very upsetting. The caretakers have now left us and a completely new team is helping to look after Tregray. It continues to be a house that we love and a most beautiful place.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We could not recommended this place highly enough. Gorgeous house and gorgeous grounds. Our children absolutely loved the garden with the mini football pitch, trampoline and tree house. It also felt very, very safe.

The house itself is lovely, very homely, the kitchen area is great for large families and the bedrooms are very spacious. It is well equipped....dishwasher and tumble dryer are fantastic (especially if the weather isnt great!)

I almost dont want to write this review as i want to keep this fantastic holiday home just for ourselves :-)

Our children have been all over the world on holiday......this is their favourite place. We wiill hopefully return year after year.
