About Jo Hudson
Tregrehan Estate is part of the Carlyon family heritage which Tom Hudson, a descendant from New Zealand, came to manage over 20 years ago. Tom has a tremendous knowledge of woody plants and has continued the creation of Tregrehan Garden recognised internationally for its collection of trees beginning from Veitch's seed in the mid 19th Century. Jo manages the holiday cottages on the estate. 'We aim to blend the comforts of modern living within the bounds of heritage buildings in the style they deserve'. Tregrehan Estate is an extraordinary place, surprisingly uncommercialised, allowing people who love this environment to enjoy its tranquility.
Jo Hudson purchased this Cottage in 1565
Why Jo Hudson chose Par
Why this property? Because there is so much to do nearby. Because you return after the day on the beach, in a garden, walking the cliffs, site-seeing, and turn off the A390 to Tregrehan Garden, drive up the dappled Lime Tree Alley of Tregrehan Parkland, and you are really pleased to be home because it is truly a lovely place to be. From east to west on the south coast within 20 minutes lie... the ancient village of Fowey and the Fowey estuary branching to the villages of Lerryn and Lostwithiel with it's antique market. Kayak or canoe on this magic stretch of river with her wooded river banks. Polkerris beach with 'Sam's on the Beach' a popular stone-fired pizza and seafood restaurant, the Rashleigh pub (even more wonderful in winter with the fire burning) and the Polkerris Beach Company who have taught our children to sail and me to windsurf. Par beach, a great dog walking beach all year round. Carlyon Bay - keeping us interested while we wait for its development with 'Sam's in the Bay' bar and restaurant; good swimming. Swashbuckling and fishing at Charlestown Historic Harbour with her historic ships, film ventures and extraordinary harbour. Mevagissey fishing village, famed for her quintessential Cornishness with fishing boats, restaurants and cottage charm. Further inland is The lost garden of Heligan, 25 minutes drive, Lanhydrock House, National Trust, 20 minutes drive, the Eden Project, 20 minutes walk, Tregrehan Garden, on site! To the north within 45 minutes is Newquay (take the direct train line from Par) and Fistral Bay, surfing mecca, and the continuous stretch of beautiful beaches west and east. Walk your socks off on Bodmin Boor or the coastal trail. And a stunning way to visit St Ives is by train.

Ideal location for peace and quiet
This was our second stay at Tregrehan, and we loved it as much as the first time. The Mews cottage is lovely and the grounds of the Tregrehan estate are tranquil and beautiful.
The Mews was absolutely perfect for us.
Our stay was superb. Everyone at Tregrehan was so welcoming and helpful it bowled us over. The environment is just so relaxed and easy and the surroundings very impressive. The actual cottage suited us down to the ground - have to say the weather helped - but the lovely secluded garden was great.
When we had a "minor" technical transport problem the sympathetic help was fantastic. Yes, a truly memorable couple of weeks!
Relaxing and tranquil.
A great way to get away from other tourists and relax in an authentic and historic garden setting.
Accommodation fine - lovely environs. Everyone friendly and helpful. Pleasant and relaxing stay.
My 11th visit. The property is comfortable, clean and beautifully equipped. A lovely private garden.
We keep returning as the Estate is very beautiful and private and all 4 properties we have been in are of a high standard. Jo and her team do everything to make your holiday a delight.
I cannot recommend this wonderful place highly enough.
Shall go back next year again.
Delightful mews cottage nr St Austell
Very enjoyable four nights in charming well equipped mews cottage set in the grounds of Tregrehan House. The property is one of four rented out by the family who live in the house and as guests we were able to visit the extensive woodland as well as the park. The cottage is well placed for visits and not far from the South West Coast path and great walking plus, if the weather is kind, there are plenty of beaches close by too.
Special interest holidays:
Tregrehan Garden cottages are open all year round. They are the ideal base for plantsmen and women from February onwards when the Cornish Gardens come into their peak. Tregrehan Garden is a dramatic woodland garden created over the last 200 years by the Carlyon family, forming an exotic green gene bank of known source plants in a temperate rain forest. Within tower some two dozen trees recorded as the biggest of their type in the country. Veteran trees in the 100ha parkland date from the first half of the 17th century. An extensive 128ft glasshouse built in 1844 shelters a fine plant range in the more formal walled garden area. Tregrehan Garden is a garden of recognised merit within a grade II star listed landscape. The garden is free to guests during hours of opening to the public and at other times as arranged when guests have particular interest.
