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.

True CL

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!

Perfection

The site and welcome were so good we will return. Fantastic views and so quite. Would suggest approach from the west as instructed. We came from the east, but got away with it driving a 7m motorhome. Many thanks Mike.
