About the property

Cottage in Pendeen, Cornwall, Poldark Country! Close to Penzance and St Ives, in The Centre Of A Peaceful Cornish Village, Close To Many Great Beaches

Trevow was lovingly renovated and refurbished in 2014 providing a holiday home from home to an exceptional standard. Set in a terrace of cottages and less than one minute walk to a winner of the CAMRA pub of the year, The North Inn Pub.

We bought Trevow in June 2014. We spent six months carefully overseeing its transformation from a beautiful, but tired, damp, cold miner’s cottage into the comfortable home you find today. The entire house was gutted down to the original granite stone and then bit by bit, rebuilt and refurbished.

We wanted some luxuries and a lot of comfort. We hope you find everything you need, but are always looking out for ideas. The cottage includes super broadband wifi, HD Smart TV, central heating, sumptuous honeymoon shower, a log burning stove, king sized sleigh bed in the master room, recently landscaped rear garden space, along with many, many more touches.

Downstairs finds the living room, kitchen, and bathroom to the rear of the property, whilst upstairs brings you two singles and a master bedroom. We provide a cot, high chair and additional bed to sleep 5.

There is ample parking to the front and to the rear of the cottage. The cottage is the perfect base for you to explore this beautiful part of Western Cornwall. Trevow is steeped in history, but many modern comforts and extra special features are provided to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. Visit Geevor or Levant Tin & Copper mine, Cornwall's No1 Mining Centre, both within walking distance, where many scenes from the recent BBC Series 'Poldark' were shot. At Geevor you can take an underground tour, at Levant, experience the Beam steam engine. Pendeen has its very own lighthouse and you can walk to it from the cottage, on misty days you can even hear it boom. Ancient Monuments are easily found. Just 10 mins drive from the cottage, will bring you two of the most well known – Men-an-Tol and Lanyon Quoit, up on the moors where you can get the most wonderful views too. National Trust properties abound, particularly Trengwainton Gardens at Madron and magical St Michael’s Mount in Mount’s Bay, Penzance, are nearby and wonderful places to explore. Galleries everywhere, painting, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery and more. Penlee House Museum in Penzance, features work from the famous ‘Newlyn School’ and Lamorna group of artists (1800-1930). Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum house exciting Contemporary Art collections, and are just another reason to visit the fascinating harbour-town of St Ives, a jewel in the rugged north coast. A must is a visit to the atmospheric cliff-top Minack Theatre at Porthcurno (a beautiful beach here too). Experience Shakespeare, a musical or even a Roald Dahl story, in the open air, under the stars. And of course coves, beaches and harbours, what Cornwall is famous for. Portheras Cove is the nearest, a secluded sandy cove only accessible by foot. Sennen beach in Whitesand Bay, a world renowned perfect place for surfing the waves. Mousehole, just over to the south is a picture-perfect harbour, not to be missed. Pendeen, has an excellent Village Stores, Cafe, Fish and Chip Shop, Post Office, Pottery and a Farmer's Market held the first and third Saturday every month, all within three minutes walking distance of the cottage. further information at

About Helen Tumbridge

Helen Tumbridge is a Television Producer, working in Light Entertainment for many years for both BBC and ITV. Gary Moyes is a freelance photographer working mainly in TV, Film and Location Photography. Many of his photographs are on display in the property.

Both Helen and Gary enjoyed many childhood holidays in Cornwall, and have taken their own children to this beautiful part of the world every year for the past fourteen years.

They wanted to buy a property in which to stay when they could, and to offer to other couples and families to enjoy everything they love about Cornwall. The people, the coastline, the beaches and the pubs.

Helen Tumbridge purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Helen Tumbridge chose Pendeen

We looked for months, looking at many properties in Cornwall, but Trevow was the only one that felt like home. It needed a lot of work to bring it to how you'll find it now. The entire house was gutted back to the original granite stone and then bit by bit rebuilt.

We love Pendeen, the people are friendly and we've never yet seen a traffic jam. We love nearby Portheras Cross Beach; through our work we have both been to many beaches around the world, we both think this is the best by far.

St Michael's Mount is just stunning at any time of day and we never tire of the thrill of walking across the causeway to reach the island.

St Ives is beautiful year round, New Year's Eve is especially fantastic with everyone wandering the streets in fancy dress before fireworks at midnight.

What makes this cottage unique

Trevow has all the character of a traditional Cornish Cottage, but now with many home comforts we feel you just can't live without.

We've tried to make it as homely as possible, books, games, jigsaws and DVDs are all there to enjoy. And, even though you're about as far South West as you can possibly go, if you feel the need to stay in touch with the outside world, our wifi will allow you to.

The walk in shower is fantastic, pure luxury and the wood burner creates the cosiest of living rooms to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or two.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely little place made all the better by the easy to follow guide to the area and home. Beautiful minimal but homely design. Very helpful owner (Helen) who checked all was well throughout the holiday. Though not a specifically disabled enabled property we managed just fine as there is room to manoeuvre (though use of a wheelchair in the home is not possible- Helen did make this known before booking). Quiet and lovely views of the sea from the back bedrooms. I feel in love with the wooden shutters on each bedroom window!!!! Thank you Will likely be back.

Clean, modern and lovely location with everything you need for self catering

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Cornwall. This was the ideal location to enjoy the peace and quiet and still be close enough to many attractions and day trips to keep us and our two young children amused.

Comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean cottage with interesting pub next door and dog walks from the back courtyard, across open fields.

Suggestion is to put reading light(s) in the lounge to enable reading in the winter.

Lounge was over furnished, even for four, with the addition of two sizeable armchairs (we put one under the stair during our stay, and there was only two of us...)

Gorgeous cottage in great village location

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully decorated and very well-equipped. The shower was magnificent and I particularly appreciated the range of children's books available to borrow. It was very handy for local facilities and also a good base for exploring that area of Cornwall. Would love to come back and spend longer.

A lovely home, beautifully decorated with all the home comforts.

  • 5 of 5

3 ladies on a walking weekend found this a really lovely little cottage. It has everything you need to make a stay feel like being at home, the kitchen is especially nice and a place we spent a lot of time in around the table. Good shower (plenty of hot water) and it was very clean and tidy. I was in the master bedroom which was really comfortable and spacious, with good solid shutters on the windows which meant the room is dark and quiet. My friends in the singles rooms did say they found the beds not very comfortable, as the mattresses had lumpy springs in them, but that would be the only issue with this property (middle aged ladies need their comfy beds after walking the coast path to Sennen!). If you want a lovely quiet base to explore the tip of Cornwall then this place is perfect - pub next door and a small shop up the road, plus easy access to the coast path and plenty of parking on the road outside.
