Trenouth is a breathtaking contemporary beach house uniquely positioned on the cliff top minutes from the beach at Treyarnon. It’s been totally remodelled throughout with a large open plan kitchen/living space that features spectacular high ceilings and huge windows that perfectly frame the views down the coast to Trevose Head. It can sleep up to 16 in 6 bedrooms including a unique Shepherds hut bedroom in the garden with double bed and cosy wood burning stove. The living space incorporates a spacious seating area with a feature double glass sided wood burning stove, 2 dining tables seating 16 and a fully equipped contemporary kitchen. A state of the art Sonos speaker system is fully integrated throughout all rooms, meaning any music collection can be played in any room from the touch of a smart phone.
A door from the living space leads directly out to a huge decked terrace which wraps right around the house. This is a superb place to relax and enjoy the coastal views from every angle. The house itself also sits in a large plot with ample grassed garden space to play or relax in. Just over the garden hedge the coastal path leads down the cliff side first to Treyarnon Bay and then a short flat walk further along the coast path to Constantine Bay, Booby’s Bay and Trevose Head. In the other direction the path bends around several secluded small coves before arriving at the beautiful Porthcothan Bay.
Trenouth features 6 bedrooms in all. There are four bedrooms on the ground floor, the three bedrooms along the front of the house all feature great views out to sea. The front 3 bedrooms consist of a king size with ensuite, one super king bedroom with ensuite and one double bedroom. The last bedroom on the ground floor is on the other side of the corridor at the back of the house. It is a twin room with attractive built in wooden single beds at both ends and views out over the back garden. The remaining bedroom in the house is on the top floor, a large spacious dormitory style room which can sleep up to 6 in 6 single beds (2 of these beds will only be made up on specific request). The room would work well for a large group of kids to spend the whole holiday together. It also benefits from multiple skylights each with sea view. The sixth and final bedroom is in a completely separate outdoor shepherds hut in the garden which has a king sized bed, running water, electric socket and wood burning stove. It creates a fun and uniquely cosy space to drop off to sleep while listening to the relaxing sound of the waves rolling in below you.
All bedrooms are simply and cleverly furnished with a mixture of vintage and modern pieces with comfy armchairs and eclectic chests of drawers. All bedrooms feature beautiful and extremely comfortable beds, heavy oak doors, brass door handles and wall hooks to hang clothes.
There are three bathrooms, all fitted out in tactile natural stone with sleek bathroom fixtures and fittings. The main bathroom can be found on the ground floor with contemporary bath with shower over; modern loo and basin. Both en-suites are also on the ground floor and include large shower cubicles with thick glass screens, modern loos, basins and heated towel rails.
Living, Kitchen and Dining spaces
The main living space allows masses of brilliant coastal light to flood in through large expanses of glazing; the views are captivating and the feeling of space is superb. It is a fully open plan space that integrates both living , dining and kitchen areas.
There are two quality sofas in the lounge area to relax on and watch either the TV or the crackling glow of the huge double sided wood burner. The kitchen area is very well equipped and presented throughout, perfectly set up for cooking large meals or preparing picnics for the beach. There is a large stainless steel range cooker, butler sink and breakfast bar with 6 stylish industrial bar stools, perfect for breakfast and the heated discussion over the days plans. The vintage reclaimed wooden kitchen island in the centre of the kitchen space makes a great design statement, as does the long sturdy wooden dining table surrounded by Philip Starck ghost chairs. There is also an additional smaller dining table; the two tables together can easily seat 16.
Upstairs there is an additional snug with a large wall mounted TV and speakers, a comfy corner sofa and a classic Eames lounge chair.
This is the perfect space for adults or kids to retreat to after a long day at the beach or on a hopefully rare rainy day. Multiple skylights also provide great views and pleasant natural light.
Trenouth enjoys full oil central heating along with a large feature double sided wood burner in the open plan living/dining and kitchen space. There is wireless broadband, a large flat screen TV and speakers in the upstairs snug as well as the main living space. There is also a state of the art Sonos in-wall/in-ceiling speaker system fully integrated throughout all the rooms in the house. This system allows a smartphone/laptop/tablets music collection to be played in individual or all of the rooms in the house. There are also 2 double Kayaks that can used to explore the nearby coastline.
There is a separate utility room, with extra stainless steel fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.
Accessible directly from the main living space is the superb wrap around front and back terrace which has sublime views over the headland and out to sea. The terrace is the perfect place to sunbathe, sit and read a book. A great place to watch the sunset and the outdoor lighting slowly light up around you.There are two tables on the terrace front and back which alongside the evening lighting and the integrated outdoor heaters make the terrace very well suited to communal alfresco meals.
Trenouth’s garden areas are criss crossed by attractive paths and have been fully landscaped with finely crafted stone sculptures, creatively planted borders and a useful herb garden to pick from.
Also within the garden sits the specially designed shepherds hut a clever small space adding something extra to the bedroom array.
There is also ample parking for 8 cars on the private drive.
One of Cornwall’s best beaches is minutes down the coast path. You can enjoy its large sweep of sand, wonderful rocks for climbing and pooling, or unbeatable headland walking both north and south. There is also Treyarnon natural swimming pool carved into the rocks – it can be found on the other side of the bay below the headland. Surfing is also good at Treyarnon – receiving plenty of waves, but a little more manageable than some of the most exposed beaches. Mid to high tide is best. Lifeguards are in place at Treyarnon, May through September.
For a change, you can walk to Constantine Bay in less than 10 minutes across the flat and easy headland. Its fine even for children in pushchairs – and even if carrying your beach gear and picnic!
For local shopping, Gary’s shop in the beach car park can be very useful. For all manner of provisions and essentials, as well as your daily milk, bread and newspaper, it’s perfect. For a larger choice, you can walk up through the campsite to Constantine Bay Stores in less than 10 minutes. Here you will find a range of quality food that may allow you to really avoid driving all week. Next door is Des’ surf shop for all manner of surf gear, to buy or rent.
Locally, the Youth Hostel past the beach on the right is open to non residents at different times of the day – for drinks, coffee and snacks. It has improved its range, and really is pretty good now for a light lunch or evening drinks in a fantastic setting and with wonderful views.
Beach barbecues are a regular feature of warm evenings at Treyarnon. Enjoy!
