Only a 5 minute drive to the A30 and within a 1 1/2 mile radius there is access to shops, post office, pubs, train and bus stops - easily accessible by foot or by car. Only 3 miles from St Ives town with its cobbled streets, award-winning restaurants, wonderful shops, art galleries and beaches.

About the Owner

I was born in St Ives, and have lived in the area for all of my life...and couldn't imagine living anywhere else! We live on the family farm where the cottages are situated - my husband, Jason, is one of many generations of Rogers' who have farmed the land here. We love living here, and enjoy our gardening and grow as much as of our own veg as we can and we take pride in our holiday cottages and clean and maintain them ourselves, giving that personal touch which I think our visitors really appreciate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Horseshoe Cottage for over 10 years - that speaks for itself! We always have a list of things we want to see and do whilst here - we manage some and some have to wait for next year! Thank you Tanya for the flowers and the cream tea on arrival - we look forward to that at journey's end! See you next year.

Beautiful and peaceful cottage in perfect location with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 3 week stay in Horseshoe cottage. We received a lovely warm welcome on our arrival from Tanya who was always very helpful and happy to answer any questions we had. The cottage was spotlessly clean and was fully equipped with everything you could need. The cream tea and fresh flowers were such a kind, personal touch after our long journey. The cottages are beautifully maintained and have lots of lovely finishing touches. The cottage is very spacious and homely with beautiful views perfectly located in a very peaceful location but very close to local beaches & St Ives. We loved our stay here and were very sad to leave and cannot wait for our return next year. Many thanks again to Tanya and Jason for our lovely stay.

Our cottages are situated on our farm, and are in a quiet location but at the same time you are only 5 minutes by car to the main A30, and 3 miles from the bustling town of St Ives. Personally supervised, you can trust that when you arrive, the properties will be clean and comfortable. A cream tea and fresh flowers will also be waiting for you. Short breaks can be available during off-peak periods - please enquire direct for more information/quotes.

From the Owner

We have a high number of return visitors - some of whom have been coming for years - and Trevethoe really does seem to be somewhere where you can feel 'at home'. A quiet place to retreat to after a busy day sightseeing - and with on-site parking and generous gardens it really does tick a lot of boxes. Also, if you should experience any problems, or need help with anything, we only live a stone's throw away so are easily accessible should you need us!
