We take care of all new holidaymakers and all the existing ones who have become friends over the years.

I live on the premises so available to help and to give advice regarding the locality etc. but not so good with the weather forecasts!

Julie Strachey purchased this barn in 2003

Why Julie Strachey chose Gwinear-Gwithian

Just fell in love with the location and surrounding area.

Trevaskis Barn where TREVASKIS DAIRY is situated on a small farm in quiet

countryside yet close to all convenient shops & beaches which we


What makes this barn unique

Gwithian Beach is a favourite but having the choice of both coastlines is a

fun advantage all within a few miles drive.

There is a great choice of entertainment, galleries, theatre, coastal

walks, local fish/food festivals and excellent places to eat and relax which

makes this part of Cornwall special.

The barn conversion was beautiful with so many lovely touches made by the owner Julie. We even had a bottle of wine and some other goodies left for our arrival. There was nothing that was too much trouble and Julie made us both so very welcome. My first painting class at St Ives School of Painting and what a lovely place to come back to after each day of the course. We will definitely be back again to stay either in the barn or studio, thanks again for making this trip so memorable Julie. Debbie & Martin xxx

Excellent accommodation suitable for a couple. very comfortable. Everything you would require for your holiday included. Host was a lovely lady and very helpful. Area deep in a quiet village down a farm track, but accessible to all that Cornwall has to offer.

very relaxing holiday

Amazing Cornwall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived to the time we left Julie made us feel very welcome. The Dairy is fully stocked with everything you may need and is set in a beautiful location. The location is only about 30 / 40 minutes from all the main attractions Lands End, The Lizard & Jamaica Inn. Definitely one for the holiday lists - We cant wait until our next visit.

Special interest holidays:

At the top of the lane within walking distance is "Trevaskis Restaurant", a well known licensed farmhouse restaurant, open daily for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner throughout the year.

There is a farm shop selling local produce. Strawberries, raspberries and loganberries are available to pick in season.

The market town of Hayle is close by for all your shopping requirements. The quaint town of St Ives with its cobbled streets, award winning restaurants and the Tate Gallery is only a short drive away as well as Penzance and the fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole. Attractions such as Land's End, St Michael's Mount, the Minack Open Air Theatre, the Eden Project and the cathedral city of Truro are also an easy drive away.


The famous "Gwithian Beach" with 3 miles of sandy beach nearby, popular for all beach sports.


Follow the A30 west and turn off at ‘Camborne West’.

At the mini roundabout turn right through ‘Roseworthy’ towards Connor Downs, on entering the village take your first left towards Carnhell Green and Praze, follow the road round and look out on the right for Trevaskis Restaurant & Fruit Farm, turn in here but instead of going into the restaurant’s car park take the lane immediately in front of you and we are the first property on right.


Gwithian Beach approx. 2 miles and St Ives approx. 5 miles

Making Trevaskis Dairy a really good location for North & South coasts.

See details on website for places of interest.

Further Details:

Although on a quiet farm, several top class restaurants and a village pub are within walking distance.

Boots chemist, M & S, Next, and all major supermarkets a short car ride.
