Excellent location and wonderful views. Very peaceful. Place a bit small but fine for one! Narrow roads can be a challenge!
Before we arrived we were contacted by Oli to make sure that we could find the place. On arrival he greeted us and gave us a tour, showing us where things were, how to work the shower and heating etc. The cottage was exceptionally well equipped with everything we could possibly need to make our stay perfect, including: a small supply of tea, coffee, milk and sugar (with those lovely coffee biscuits), hairdryer, iron and all the crockery, cutlery and pans you could possibly need (including the necessary corkscrew). In fact we couldn't have asked for anything else.
The cottages are well sited for exploring West Cornwall and we wouldn't hesitate to use them next time we visit the area.
Short and sweet
A little gem of a place! A small bungalow perfect for a couple wanting to get away for a quiet and peaceful holiday. We had a lovely view of the ocean (provided it was a clear day) and the bungalow was well kept and clean ready for use. Although self catering, we were left with a few cleaning supplies, towels, a hair dryer and teas and coffees, which we felt was a lovely touch! If we were ever in the area again, we would definitely stay in one of the cottages again.
Very nice secluded quiet location with beautiful views to the sea.
Friendly welcome. Nice hosts. Clean accommodation.
Weeks Stay at Trenance
Had a lovely walking week based at Trenance. The cottage is small and compact however ideal for the 2 of us and our dog. There are a few points that could be improved upon ie: In the bathroom the cabinet mirror was going black from age/damp, the toilet roll stand rusting and the towel rail could easily have been larger to accommodate 2 towels, I also think that the UHT milk and pre packed 3 biscuits are not exactly the Cornish welcome I would have expected. The day we arrived it had been raining heavy all day and I think that maybe the Cottage had been empty so when we arrived it was feeling very cold & damp. We had the electric fire on for the evening and it soon warmed up, I think it would have made it more inviting to be welcomed to a cosy warm cottage. In saying all this though the overall cleanliness of the cottage was good with adequate equipment to cook with and a very comfortable bed. The owners are on site should you need them but they are not intrusive and after the initial welcome and shown the basics of where everything was and operation of tv etc we were left to our own devices. Great spot offering the peace & quiet of the countryside with a spectacular view of the coast as well as centrally located for exploring this area of Cornwall.
Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.
Chycarne is only 1.5 miles from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with it's Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where trips to the Isles of Scilly can be taken by helicopter or ferry. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.
Chycarne is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.
