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 (6 adults + 2 children) + 2 babes 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 Trevone

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We are just at the end of another lovely week in Trevone. Please could we book next year" Mrs YT.

"The weather has been lovely to date and as ever, Kohinoor is proving to be a great base for a family holiday." Mr IC.

"Just to let you know we had a lovely time at the house,and it was lovely and clean" Mrs NJ.

house by the Cornish beach

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay - spacious and Good facilities especially the kitchen/diner and the ground floor shower facilities when back from the beach.

Garden is a useful facility

Parking for 3 cars so it allows family to stay for a few days and go.

Beach cafe has good evening food so you don't have to cook every night but you have to book.

Padstow close but expensive

Trevone beach one of the best unless you are a top surfer

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Kohinoor. Yes, being so close to the beach means a ground floor wet room is a great asset for all the family.

Roomy, comfortable well equipped house. 2 minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6. The property is very well proportioned the huge kitchen /diner was excellent, with a huge fridge and all mod cons. We were grateful for the wet room and utility room after getting caught in the rain and going for a swim on boxing day!

A fantastic holiday thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. We will definitely consider "Khoinoor" for future holidays and will certainly recommend this property and Trevone Bay to family and friends.

Look forward to coming again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely few days in this house. The beaches and walks round the headland really are within such a short walk from the house and the bay is gorgeous. We also walked to Padstow one day which was a lovely walk on the coastal path. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed for our weekend break. I would definitely book again.

Perfect Family Holiday Property

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful family holiday here.

The location is perfect for children with great surfing, bathing and rock-pooling beaches two minutes walk away. So easy for carting the mountain of equipment that we appear to need and also for nipping back to collect the forgotten items. Plus no parking charges!

The property itself is perfectly set up for families. Loads of space, comfortable and easy to keep clean.

Particularly useful is the twin shower wet room in the utility room.Great for showering after after the beach without bringing sand into the house.

Definitely recommend

Saturday Changeover Day for weekly bookings. £100 non-returnable Booking Deposit is required. Balance invoiced 10 weeks before arrival. It's impossible to get cleaning staff on a Saturday in season, hence the house is offered "self-serviced" where an additional £100 Cleaning Bond is charged, returned in full after departure providing the house has been left "clean & tidy" for the next guest. This system has worked well for 15 years. A full cleaning service at £80 may be possible out of season, please enquire.
