The Gamekeeper's Cottage was renovated this spring 2021 opening the cottage to natural light throughout and giving direct access to it's private walled garden. Two bedrooms, a spacious master with basin, a twin bedroom, and bathroom with overhead shower. It is a light, spacious cottage with open-plan kitchen/living room with local slate and wood flooring, high ceilings and a wood-burner (wood supplied free from the estate). Renovation included new wiring for modern connections and very good WiFi. Ideal for two with a 10% reduction, a small family, and pets with secure high walled private garden.

Superbly located on the South coast between the historic fishing villages of Fowey and Charlestown, and 35 minutes by car to the North Coast, Tregrehan is a fabulous all season destination. Tregrehan House remains home to the Carlyon family since 1565. Tregrehan Garden, next to Kew and Hillier Gardens, protects the greatest diversity of recorded trees in the country. Across a cobbled courtyard, ancient trees tower above the walled garden.

Five fully equipped cottages surround the courtyard, each with it's own private garden. The property is surrounded by fields and ancient parkland, yet urban amenities are nearby (a mile west and east). Entry to Tregrehan Garden is free to guests during opening hours. All season tennis court. Nearby Fowey, historic fishing village and dining mecca. The popular film venue of historic Charlestown with its' tall ships & good restaurants lies to the west. Endless coastal walks. 15 minutes walk to the Eden Project. Pets are welcome in Coach House and Gamekeeper's cottages. Arrive to a warm house with lit fires, made beds and milk in the fridge.

Other detail - quality linen & duvets. Digital TV and DVD, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, wood burner, night store heater and Rointe electric heaters. Garden furniture. Barbecue. Recycling. Parking. Communal washing machine (£2/wash). Asphalt tennis court for use. Pets welcome at £4 per day.

We love it!

By C and G, Bath on 11-Jan-2022

’15 visits to Gamekeepers in as many years – you can tell that we really enjoy it. A big, light, warm and welcoming open-plan space, with a great log burner and a well equipped kitchen zone. Then up the first few stairs and you are straight into the lovely private garden, with plenty of space for kids or canine friends or just chilling out on a warm evening. Jo and Tom the owners make sure to welcome you personally, and just driving up through the surrounding parkland is a great way of losing all your stress and strains and relaxing into the perfect holiday. The location is ideal for Fowey, Heligan, The Eden Project, and both the north and south coasts of central Cornwall. Close to good local shops but great to return to for peace and quiet and the magic of an old Cornish garden. If you have read “Rebecca” you can’t fail to fall for the romance of the setting.’ We love it!

“Wow, perfect, and I'll tell you why!

By H Sleigh on 19-Oct-2021

“Wow, perfect, and I'll tell you why! The cottage, when we arrived, the log burner was lit. Warm, cosy and impressively clean. Essentials in the fridge. Scented candles in the draw. We have stayed before but the renovations have lifted it to another level. So comfortable and easy to live in. When our daughter and fiancé arrived we still had more than enough room to live with enough space! Eating in was easy with all the utensils and crockery, eating out was a joy with the wonderful restaurants nearby. We've had a tough year like so many others, Gamekeepers is an antidote, I can't really find the words to recommend it highly enough. Thank you Jo. And the cleaning option at the end is inspired! “ If you would like to verify this is a genuine review, please give Jo your details and I will get in touch. Best, Helen

Thank you for the perfect break

By Rose & Bill on 27-Jul-2021

‘It’s a perfect cottage, well equipped and comfortable. The bonus was being able to share the grounds to walk our dog. On top of that was a visit to the gardens which are really impressive for gardeners and non- gardeners alike. The whole team on site were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Thank you for the perfect break’
