Trebartha is a well-loved family home that oozes waterside comfort and relaxation. It boasts sweeping views, a stunning large garden and a decadent hot tub. It’s in a truly special location, overlooking Restronguet Creek on the River Fal, neatly tucked between the maritime town of Falmouth and the city of Truro. This is the perfect retreat for your tranquil Cornish escape.

Not planning on using the Hot Tub? Please let us know at least two weeks prior to your arrival, and we can arrange for this to be switched off and emptied. We will then refund you up to £160.

Trebartha is a home where you will find easy laid-back living by the River Fal. The idyllic garden and hot tub means you’ll be spending as much time outside as you do inside the home. The house is a great base for adventuring, and you’re never too far away from the independent shops and restaurants in Falmouth and Truro, and stunning walks around the verdant River Fal. 

Inside Trebartha

Approaching via quiet country roads, you arrive at Trebartha’s private driveway. Walking into the home, you are instantly drawn to the open plan kitchen/living/dining area, which all benefit from the showstopping views across the manicured garden and over Restronguet Creek. The kitchen is modern and well equipped, and a large window offers lots of light and pleasant views. The kitchen has a full height 50/50 split fridge freezer, induction hob, convection oven, a Nespresso coffee maker and a microwave.

Linked to your kitchen space is the stylish living room with three comfy sofas (seating seven people), all centred around a large smart TV and a wood burner to keep you cosy during the colder months. Behind the seating area is a dining area, with space for six people, and gorgeous panoramic views of the creek. All these ingredients creates a light, friendly and cosy space to make memories together with loved ones.

This home has three bedrooms on the ground floor, all connected by the main hallway. The principal bedroom is a super king, where you can wake up each morning to views of the creek. Bedroom two is a double, which has an ensuite with a walk-in shower and a skylight to provide the room with plenty of light. Bedroom three has a zip and link bed, which is defaulted as a twin room but can be made into a king on request. All rooms have wardrobes and/or other storage space. You will also have a family bathroom complete with a bath and a shower. Trebartha is equipped with a separate utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

The garden and surrounding area

Where do we start?! The garden at Trebartha is simply magnificent. There is a large lawn surrounded by beautiful floral borders, so you will struggle to tear yourself away to explore the surrounding area (but we recommend that you do!). You will find a hot tub, where you can live out indulgent evenings with a glass of bubbly. The top of hot tub is also level with the patio, ensuring you can easily enter/exit the inviting water. Tucked away at the end of the garden is your fire pit and comfy outdoor sofa. Here you can spend cosy evenings stargazing and toasting marshmallows. Completing your garden is a patio, along with a teak dining table, teak chairs for eight guests and a Weber barbecue for alfresco feasts.

You will be enchanted by Restonguet Creek and the surrounding River Fal area. The estuary is grand in its size, and has lots of tributaries and pretty villages to explore like Flushing, Mylor and St Just in Roseland. The area is also a haven for all things sailing — which is obvious when you see just how many moored boats are bobbing in the creek alone. Just a ten-minute walk from Trebartha is the village of Feock and the nearby Loe Beach, where you can hire paddleboards and kayaks. If you’re not feeling confident enough to hit the water by yourself, there are lessons available in sailing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding.

Looking across the creek from Trebartha, you won’t miss the historic The Pandora Inn, an award-winning thatched pub that prides itself on using fresh, local produce, and only a short drive away. The inn was re-named in memory of the HMS Pandora, the naval ship sent to Tahiti to capture the mutineers of Captain Bligh’s Bounty.

A little further up the river you’ll find Trelissick, a National Trust garden and house which boasts 300 acres of woodland and countryside for you to explore. You can catch the King Harry Ferry (via car) from Trelissick, which will take you across the River Fal to The Roseland peninsula — where you can explore more of the south coast of Cornwall, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Be sure to stop at the picturesque St Mawes and the fishing village of Portscatho!

Things we love

There is certainly a lot you will love about Trebartha, it’s impossible to pick just one standout feature. You will love its fantastic location, a quiet corner of the world that’s easy to unwind but still very well connected. If you do feel like returning to civilisation, you will be a ten-minute drive to the “big city” of Truro, where you can explore the shops and magnificent cathedral. The maritime centre of the River Fal, Falmouth, is also just a 25 minute drive or a scenic passenger ferry from Trelissick. Whatever you’re looking for from a holiday, you have it all on your doorstep.

And when you return from your Cornish adventures, you can unwind in Trebartha — tailored-made for relaxed creek-side living. The kitchen and living area is perfect for hosting everyone in your clan together, whether that’s cooking (and eating) a stellar holiday meal, flopping on the comfy sofas or basking in the heat from the woodburner. You will also adore Trebartha’s extensive garden, a space to soak up the Cornish sunshine and views during the day, and star-gaze from the hot tub at night. Whether you’re hosting friends or family in Trebartha, we’re sure you’ll make memories of a lifetime, and find serenity among the boats and banks of the River Fal.
