Why stay here ...

Anne and Rob Langley welcome you to Little Trenarrett.

Little Trenarrett is a 5 acre small holding with a variety of animals and poultry. There is a newly planted orchard, mostly ancient Cornish varieties of apple and pear. There is also a range of soft fruit, some vegetables and cut flowers grown. Eggs and other produce may be available depending on season. Lambing is usually in April.

Trenarrett is a small hamlet founded on an ancient settlement which at least predates Domesday. There are now just 4 houses and a brewery which produces a variety of excellent real ales which are available at the local pub. Visits may be possible on request.

The CL which opens at Easter is ideally located to access all of Cornwall and West Devon and both North and South coasts. It is only a couple of miles from the A30 so is very easily reached without too much Cornish lane negotiation.

The CL site is gently sloping, south facing and well drained. The panoramic views stretch right across the top of Bodmin Moor to the upper Tamar Valley and onward to Dartmoor. It is secluded and quiet. The pitches are grass with a hard driveway into the field. There is a toilet and chemical disposal point. There is a gated entrance to the site to ensure safety for children or animals. The driveway from the road is long enough to for a car and caravan to pull off the road safely to open the gate.

We are unable to provide electric hook-ups just yet but a generator and solar panels are available to top up batteries if required.

There is a local pub a mile down the lane which offers good quality reasonably priced food and always stocks a range of locally brewed ales.

Altarnun village is just 2 miles away with a shop and post office. The church was recently used as the venue for the wedding of  "Doc Martin". The Rector of Altarnun features in Daphne Du Maurier's novel "Jamaica Inn" which was recently televised. The Jamaica Inn which was the inspiration for the book is only 5 miles further along the A30.

There are plenty of opportunities in the area for walkers with the Inney Valley Trail passing through Trenarrett. For garden lovers there are numerous beautiful gardens open to the public in the vicinity including the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Endsleigh. There are also many NT properties including:- Cotehele, Lanhydrock,Finch Foundry, Boscastle, Tintagel andlarge sections of  the SW coastpath. East Cornwall has many intriguing places to explore which are a legacy of the local mining industry such as the Cheesewring, Carnglaze Caverns and the many unspoilt, picturesque villages of former mining communities.

Dogs and Children are welcome. Dog walking nearby.

We are three miles from the nearest Golf course.

Field With A View

Little Trenarrett
Field With A View’ Beautiful grass site facing south towards breathtaking Bodmin Moor. It is a quiet site with a light traffic on the road behind Owner watercolour paints and you can purchase her card prints together with homemade jams, marmalade’s and jellies. At the gate is a few potted plants for sale also. The owners were very welcoming and full of local knowledge and happy to share. There is also an information pack of ‘what to do locally etc’ in the impressive little loo ‘shed’ which is rather quaint, exceptionally clean and large enough to have a wash up too if needed. Dogs are accepted and in front of the site is a large dog walking field, which is great if you have a dog that enjoys just that, however the only downfall was the lack of public walking with dogs as most lovely local walks were over stiles. That’s okay if you have a little dog you can lift up and over safely, but not for our big Labrador, but apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay and can highly recommend. It was also priced very reasonable. No hook up, we paid £10 a night in June. For the twitchers out there we were lucky enough to see a Red Kite stalking it’s prey high in the sky with the backdrop of the Bodmin Moor in front of us. We will definitely go back if in that area again.

Everything is here for a relaxing stay. Owners are helpful and friendly, and the site is well-organised. Walks straight from the van. Dog-friendly, and extremely peaceful. Thoroughly recommended.

Little Trenarrett
Wow, this is a hidden gem. Not to be missed!! Beautiful views across the valley. Access to an almost new toilet facility. The most peaceful and clean caravan site I have ever visited, Anne and Rob (the owners) could not have been more welcoming and organised. Conveniently located for doing day visits to the beach and other attractions. We have stayed here three times and will visit again in the future.

Wow, wow, wow!

Little Trenarrett
I originally booked this site as it wasn’t too far into Cornwall and husband had always said that we would not be taking our 8m Motorhome into Cornwall, ever! Not far off the A30, you only have to drive a few miles down country lanes to reach this immaculate CL with amazing views. The site itself is level and well drained, there is a bathroom that was very clean although we didn’t need to use it and an added benefit of having a drive over grey waste disposal point for Motorhomes. Rob and Anne are so welcoming and friendly, they have made this CL very special, it is definitely on our list of top 10 favourite sites. There’s so much to see & do, within easy reach of both the North & South Coastlines of Cornwall. We explored all over on our scooter, across Bodmin Moor, stopping off at Jamaica Inn and then over to the coast at Tintagel, a beautiful place with amazing cliffs. So lovely to return to the Motorhome after a busy day just to sit with a glass of wine and admire the wonderful view in such peaceful surroundings. Sunday lunch at the nearby Rising Sun Inn was delicious as was Anne’s homemade strawberry jam. We will definitely return to this CL, I can highly recommend Little Trenarrett.

True CL

Little Trenarrett
Booked at this CL at last minute. All other local sites full, but they had mains power... Found we were only people in CL, or indeed in sight. Enjoyed watching the sheep. And occasional rabbits. Grand daughter loved it. The owner was very kind to us all and showed us around the small farm. Our grand daughter knows the names of the dog and the sheep. She liked the geese and chickens too. The owner could not have been kinder or more generous. Toilet well maintained and clean. Recycling neat and tidy. This is a basic CL for those of us who love peace and beauty. Owner has a bench there to come and sit and enjoy the view. Being midway between Cornwall coasts meant we could easily get to both for days out. Local pub has good food and is friendly. The local church hall lunch on Thursdays is not to be missed. They even get coaches... Local church was used for Doc Martin wedding. Lovely old place of worship. And the CL price! Enjoy!
