About the property

Comfortable self-catering family holiday home by the sea in Trevone, Nr Padstow, Cornwall

Welcome to Kohinoor our family holiday home on Cornwall's North Coast. Trevone is a village beside the sea. It has two beautiful beaches, one sandy and one rocky, so there is plenty of scope for surfing, body-boarding, swimming, rock-pooling, climbing and building sand-castles! There are also walks with magnificent views along the North Cornwall Coastal Path, leading to other beaches and coves. The grasslands support many lovely wild flowers and butterflies, and there are large numbers of interesting birds. You may even be lucky enough to spot a seal or dolphin. There are some little shops in the village. The fishing town of Padstow lies 2-3 miles to the East with its shops, harbour and good eateries including Rick Stein’s famous Seafood Restaurant, Café, Bistro, and Deli. In Padstow you can arrange boat trips and learn to windsurf.

Our house is in a quiet lane, a minute’s walk from the two beaches. It is a Edwardian seaside villa, with an extension to the side for a large kitchen / dining area fully fitted with electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher, double fridge, freezer, microwave, one baby & one toddler's high-chair. There is a separate utility room with washing machine & tumble drier, and a large wet-room with twin showers where you can change from your wetsuits after surfing. Also downstairs is a big sitting room with a bay window, widescreen TV, DVD, video, & games cupboard. There is also another separate downstairs loo. Going upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms: the first room has a king size (5’ 6’) double bed with ensuite; the second room has 2 single beds, the third bedroom also has 2 single beds; and the fourth room has a bunk bed suitable for 2 children under 45kg / 7st /100lb (typical 12yr old), plus a fixed cot. A portable folding cot is also available. There is a separate bathroom with a bath / power shower, washbasin and loo.

There is a south-facing garden, wide enough on the side for games, sitting and eating out, (there is some garden furniture), and car parking space at the front for three cars.

Full central heating is available free from September – Easter. Hot water and electricity are provided at no extra charge all year. Duvets, pillows and some extra blankets are provided, but you will need to bring your own bed-linen - duvet covers, pillow cases, baby's cot sheets etc - and towels.

Please consider whether you can accept our booking conditions:

- No pets

- No smoking indoors

- Sleeps max 8 + 2 babies (2 yrs or under in cots).

- Self-servicing: you need leave the house clean & tidy ready for the next guest. A cleaning service might be available at extra cost outside high season - please ask.

- No overnight camping.

You have everything you need for a really great holiday !

About Peter Roberts

Kohinoor's owners, Alison & Peter Roberts, have been married for 40 years and have three children. Although the children left home a good while ago, we all see Trevone as a real "home from home" and return as often as we can.

Peter Roberts purchased this house in 1995

Why Peter Roberts chose North Cornwall

When our children were little we would always go to Trevone, so when the opportunity arose in 1995 we bought Kohinoor, then part of a failed hotel, and fully refurbished it throughout. It continues to provide us with great family holidays, and even now for the grandchildren!

What makes this house unique

So nice to wander down to the beach with a cup of coffee in hand. No more car journeys, no hassle with car parking, no long treks laden down with children's beach gear. Just so easy!

Brilliant holiday property near brilliant beaches!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kohinoor in Trevone for one week. We chose it for the close proximity to the two beaches but did not really realise just how close it actually was! Just a short walk down the lane and you are at Rocky Beach, which is a lovely beach to walk and explore rock pools and just sit and watch the sea. Along the road for about 1 minute and there you find Sandy Beach, again a brilliant sandy beach a stones throw away. The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could want for a family holiday. It was warm, comfortable and was very generous in size. We particularly liked the utility room as it had a giant wet room which was great for showering after a dip in the sea, and washing machine and tumble dryer, which were a godsend. The large, light airy kitchen was brilliant and again, had everything we needed along with access through pation doors to a lovely, big garden. We were lucky enough to have great weather, even in October to be able to sit out in and enjoy the autumn sunshine. The property is also not far from the local farm shop, which is always stocked up with local produce and they are alway very friendly and helpful. All in all, if you are looking for a relaxing, family holiday with all the comforts of home, then Kohinoor is the place to stay!

Great location, great house for families

  • 5 of 5

The house is just around the corner from the beach which is ideal for families lugging lots of things down for a day at the beach! House is well presented and well kitted out for families (but not too pristine so you don't feel too bad about little feet walking in the odd bit of sand!) We love going to Trevone as it has a perfect little beach for all ages, local amenities in the village and right on the coastal path for a walk to Harlyn or Padstow. Would happily recommend Kohinoor House to others.

Fantastic location and spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Kohinoor, the house had heaps of space and was very well equipped. The wet room downstairs was fantastic for rinsing off the sand after a long day at the beach. The two beaches are literally 2 minutes from the front door and there is a well stocked surf shop and cafe next to the beach, I cannot recommend the house enough.

Warm and welcoming within easy reach of the beach

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a lovely base for a Cornish beach holiday and was also well placed for venturing further afield. You could surf or go sea fishing into the evening and have a quick walk 'home'. Padstow, the Camel Trail and the Coast Path are within easy reach. We also visited Polperro; the mining district around Redruth; and St Ives, Zennor and Cape Cornwall.

The accommodation was warm, spacious and very comfortable, all the amenities you could need. Unlike some cottages you can rent, this house really does accommodate 8 - proper seating in the sitting room and around the dining table. The secluded garden is an added bonus.

lovely family property

  • 4 of 5

this property is well set out with a large open plan kitchen/diner that opens out onto the garden. The garden is a good size with plenty of space to dry out your wetsuits.

The main advantage is the large utlitiy room with a downstairs shower - reallly useful when first coming off the beach - especially for the children.

Good sized living room though we spent most days and evenings on the beach.

A really lovely property, quiet but close to the beach.

Owner's Response: Having a family with three children ourselves we have focused on the things that have made our own holidays successful. That means making outdoor days run smoothly, by having a safe secluded garden, and the ground floor wetroom with double showers. Luckily the 2 beaches are only a couple of minutes away so no packing up of mountains of gear is needed! For rainy days spent indoors we have paid attention to our guests' comfort by providing a good-sized sitting room and a large and airy kitchen/dining room. These features, together with pleasant and comfortable bedrooms, we believe help to make a self-catering holiday really great.

This system has worked well for 15 years. A full cleaning service at £80 may be possible out of season, please enquire.
