Scrumpy Cottage (510) Sleeps 4-6
A contemporary lodge set within the grounds of a Manor House with excellent on-site facilities.
Our beautiful cottages are located in a small group of 10 cottages with the grounds of Trenython Estate close to Fowey and with views over St Austell Bay. The cottage is beautifully appointed and furnished, with 2 bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms, and a social open plan living area and kitchen. Outside is a furnished decked area, where there is plenty of space to sit and admire the views over the estate and out towards the bay.
Trenython Manor is perfectly situated for exploring the dramatic South Cornwall coast. The pretty fishing village of Fowey is a short drive away and Many of Cornwall’s most popular beaches and attractions are within easy reach including the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Guests at Trenython Cottages can also enjoy the communal lawn with views of St Austell Bay; facilities including bar, restaurant, beauty spa and indoor pool.
Trenython Cottages are two luxury, architect designed self-catering cottages, quietly located around Trenython’s 24 acres of woodlands and gardens. Each is superbly furnished and equipped to the very highest standards. The cottages are ideal for groups of friends or family wishing to holiday together whilst still enjoying their own accommodation. Each has a social open plan lounge, dining and fully fitted kitchen area, as well as a large private patio on which to sit and listen to resident birdsong or watch the ever changing skies over St Austell Bay. Each cottage is quietly located away from close neighbours to ensure a peaceful and private holiday away from it all. Our cottages sleep either 4 or 6 with a Double room, a Twin room and a Double Sofa Bed within the lounge area. Both Superior Cottages have a hairdryer, iron & ironing board and telephone. The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, hob and oven, microwave and a washing machine/dryer. They are contemporary in style, featuring two en suite bathrooms and are designed to provide the comforts of home, including Flat Screen Television with Satellite TV, DVD/CD players and comfortable settees to curl up on. The Spa Hotel at Trenython Country Estate is a Victorian mansion house dating back to 1872 offering you a tranquil haven in which to relax and be pampered. Colonial touches, Italianate detail, Egyptian pillars and ornate oak panelling in the house are preserved reminders of the original grand design. Our guests can enjoy all the facilities of he hotel, including the restaurant, bar and terrace, as well as the 12m indoor pool, sauna, spa, (Elemis Spa treatment at extra cost), and outdoor activities.

Property was very comfortable with lots of space. We were impressed with the maintenance and cleanliness of the resort, the grounds and properties are well looked after. In a very good position with lots to do in the area.
Wonderful short break in scrumpy cottage
We've had a wonderful break in lovely surroundings. The cottage is extremely well appointed and was a perfect place to base ourselves whilst in Cornwall. Having access to the hotel facilities was a real plus; my wife and 2 daughters loved the spa and my granddaughter loved the pool and made good use of the children's holiday club. We also had two lovely meals in the hotel restaurant and I would commend the chef in dealing with my granddaughters allergies. Thank you so much. Top notch.
Amazing stay in fantastic location
We stayed at the cottage for 7 nights as a family of 4 adults and 2 children. The cottage was fantastic and had everything we needed and is of high quality. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained and the kids loved the park. Hotel leisure facilities were used and loved by all, the bar and restaurant were also excellent as was the bbq night that the hotel organise. All the hotel staff were very polite and helpful. The location we also found excellent for visiting cornwall and most places we visited were no more than an hours drive. We had a fantastic holiday and are planning on returning to the same location next year. The owner is very helpful and great communication, if you are visiting Cornwall would highly recommend this cottage.
I booked scrumpy cottage and did not know what to expect. It is a perfect place to stay. The cottage is very well decorated and extremely clean. There are two bathrooms which was enough between 5 of us. The kids loved the woods behind the cottage and It is also a great place if you like to take a little stroll or even a run. The house itself is very well equipped and we had no problem for self catering although we had a meal at the hotel and it was delicious too. We were allowed to use the hotel facilities, pool/jacuzzi and the steam room which was great for rainy days as a back up. The owner is very flexible and easy to communicate, I highly recommend this place, we would like to go back.
Wonderful relaxing week
Booked a couple of days before going and took a risk and we are so happy that we did. Very efficient owner that could not have been more helpful. On arrival at the cottage, everything a family could need and more. Beautiful cottage and felt at home immediately. Facilities were fantastic, clean and children given warm welcome. Will definitely be coming back again. A very big thanks.
A great base for exploring Cornwall. The accommodation is stunning, modern, high quality and great for family or friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our two very young children. We will be back!
Activity and Interests
Fowey is only 2 miles away by car and there is a bus that runs 3 times an hour from directly outside the estate, which is wonderful as parking in Fowey is a nightmare. We are also only 3 miles from Par Sands, a magnificent sandy beach.
Fowey is only 2 miles away, Par Sands about 3 miles and The Eden Project about 12 miles away.
