Interaction with guests
We can be as hands on or off as you like! We live in the adjacent property and there is almost always someone on hand to help if needed - if you prefer to keep to yourselves then the cottage is quite separate.

Our (extremely!) friendly dogs sometimes potter about in the yard but can be kept out of your hair if you wish.

Periwinkle Cottage will be ready for you to 'move in' on arrival with a cream tea waiting in the kitchen.

We have lived in the area for a long time, so if there's something you're looking for in particular ask and we'll do our best to point you in the right direction!

We were really looking forward to our break away based on previous reviews of the property. When we arrived there was indeed a cream tea awaiting us and the property was clean. On the Tuesday we mentioned to the owner that the lights kept going dim and bright, she asked us if we had the heating on (no instructions available...

I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed

Periwinkle Cottage was as good if not better than the reviews. The location was perfect with many beautiful beaches and coves with 15 minutes drive, plenty of gastropubs (see my other reviews) nearby. Lauren and her wonderful dogs made us feel very welcome and was there for local advice and to help in case of any issues (which there weren't)....

About the neighbourhood
The neighbourhood is our smallholding! Besides the farmhouse, there is another small cottage, stables, an arena, gardens, paddocks and more greenery beyond.

Trevenen Bal is another small hamlet that can be found up along a quiet road that runs alongside our property.
Getting around
Much of Cornwall's beauty stems from its remoteness - the best way to get around and see the best bits usually means having access to a car.

There is however a bus stop just up the road from us, please check the timetables for 'Trevenen Bal' for timings and a full list of stops. This will give you access to the major local villages, towns and city as well as some beauty spots along the coast including the Lizard Peninsula.

Most of the year boat trips are run from Falmouth, allowing you to visit more of the area and enjoy see the coast from a different perspective.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Newquay International Airport: 55.0 km
Railway: Penryn Rail Station: 12.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth Ferryport: 112.0 km
Trevenen is a rural hamlet but we're well positioned near to major access roads. This makes us relatively straightforward to get to, but to enjoy the best of our situation we really recommend coming by car (the cottage has a dedicated parking space). We're just off the A394 road between Falmouth and Helston, satnavs usually do a good job of finding us!

The nearest train stations are Camborne and Penryn and there is a bus stop for local services (Helston, Falmouth, Truro, Penzance and Lizard Peninsula) just up the road from us. Newquay airport is about 35 miles northeast.
