Escape to the peace and tranquility of the Helford River in Cornwall. 

Relax in our recently restored Cornish cottage situated close to the head of Polwheveral Creek. Trenant offers classic country-cottage self catering holiday accommodation in a glorious setting.


Stroll down to the creek and take a canoe for a paddle (bring your own) or simply watch the swans, spot the fish jumping and take time to absorb the magical atmosphere.  Sit in the garden and soak up the views from the terrace, wander through the beautiful Cornish countryside or explore the creeks, coves, villages and beaches. In winter, curl up by the woodburning stove with a book or DVD from our library or cook a warming stew on the Aga.

The woodlands surrounding the creek provide fabulous walks, whilst just half a mile away the renowned Trengilly Wartha Inn offers award winning food and welcomes children and dogs.

The village of Constantine a short distance away offers shops, pub and post office, whilst Falmouth and the delightful Cornish coast are a few minute's drive.  Trenant is perfectly placed for visiting the great gardens of Cornwall, including Trebah, Glendurgan, Trengwainton, Trelissick, Trevano, Penjerrick, Bonython and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.  In addition, Penzance, St Ives, Truro, Land's End and the Lizard all are within easy reach.

And of course the gorgeous Polwheveral Creek (shown above and below) is right on your doorstep!
