Trevail House is right on the water with the most incredible views. Breathe in the sea air and soak in the calm - set over three floors, expect gorgeous interiors, incredible facilities, plenty of space and a fabulous waterside terrace, plus it's dog friendly too. Fowey is fabulous with a sandy beach, a mix of independent shops, top-notch restaurants and activities such as kayaking, sailing, boat hire or exploring the South West Coastal path.


Trevail House offers plenty of space to relax. The sitting room lies next to the kitchen on the first floor and has a host of original features such as the lovely original fireplace.

Next door you'll find the snug or TV room with Loaf sofa, electric wood burning stove, fluffy bean bags and huge television with Apple TV and full Sky TV film and sports package - perfect for catching up on that Netflix series you've heard about or for the kids to hide away in.

On the ground floor there's a handy study space for those who might need to catch up on some work, whilst the lovely garden room is an informal room with fabulous kitchen facilities and a sofa for those who wish to sit inside and watch the world go by on the river.


You'll find the kitchen on the first floor; complete with five-ring gas range cooker, Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer, wine cooler, Nespresso machine, Dualit and KitchenAid equipment and top-quality kitchen and tableware, you'll be able to rustle up feasts like an expert. There's also a host of cookery books to inspire you, and with a plethora of fabulous shops on your doorstep to pick up local produce, it's just perfect.

The Neptune dining table, set in the main kitchen, perfectly seats twelve and looks out over the water and hills beyond, through floor-to-ceiling glass doors which open out on to the decked garden - perfect for letting the sea breeze drift through on hot summery days.

On the ground floor you'll find a garden kitchen - a great little space for whipping up light lunches, barbecues, cocktails and nibbles - complete with Fisher & Paykel fridge, coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave and cooker. There's even a dumb waiter from the kitchen upstairs for handily transporting things between the two.

Sleeping & Bathing

There are four en suite bedrooms to choose from; on the second floor you'll find the master bedroom in shades of green with hints of teal, complete with a sumptuous king size bed with velvet throws, cushions, Apple TV and stunning river views to gaze at as you wake up in the mornings - bliss! It's en suite, complete with walk in shower and bath - which happens to be the original Bank Manager's bath!

Bedroom 2 has dusky pink hues and a lovely Loaf super-king bed, complete with velvet throws and cushions, views over the town, fabulously large wardrobe and en suite walk-in shower room.

Bedroom 3 has a zip and link bed which can be made up as a super-king double or as twin beds, in shades of navy blue it has an en suite walk-in shower room and on the first floor Bedroom 4 is a bunk room with en suite walk-in shower room and doors leading out onto the terrace.

Each bedroom has super-luxurious bedding to ensure a fabulous nights' sleep, whilst all the en suite rooms have heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy. In addition, there's a washroom with walk in shower and WC on the ground floor, next to the garden room.


A travel cot and highchair are available, simply request them at time of booking.

Outdoor space

Trevail House has a spectacular waterside area overlooking the River Fowey and out to sea. You have private access to the water via steps which lead from the deck. Relax on one of the sun loungers, cluster around the lovely fire pit (which doubles as an ice bucket on hot days) or enjoy long lunches alfresco whilst gazing at the boats and yachts as they sail by, over to the rolling countryside beyond.

On the water

Trevail House boasts its own private access to the shoreline, so perfect if you have kayaks or you might like to try your hand at paddle boarding. If you prefer to be a land lubber, nothing beats dipping toes into the cool waters and maybe play pirates and dig for treasure when the tide is out.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Trevail House:

It’s a great combination of relaxation and being in the thick of it Just perfect

Exquisite waterside haven from London, ideal for 3 couples and a couple of children/ dogs. You really don't need to leave the house...maybe fall into Sams for a delicious sea food dinner and maybe wander over the road to bakery baking fresh bread and croissants every day. We loved it! We will be back!

Just enjoyed a fabulous week in Fowey. This house is fantastic in a wonderful location. Very handy for all the wonderful restaurants. A great place to relax and enjoy the sights. The outlook from the house is wonderful. A real party place for any occasion

Stunning retreat with a location to die for!

Fantastic week with our 3 adult children their partners and our grandson. Many happy memories created. Can’t recommend highly enough!

We had a fantastic 5 week stay. The location is stunning and the property is very well equipped and really comfortable. The housekeeping team were all lovely and did a great weekly clean. Cant wait for our next stay in September.

As above, my family had a wonderful time. I’ll look forward to booking with you again.

'All amazing and we’re already planning a return to Trevail House. The fact you didn’t really need to use the car was a luxury. We ate out almost every night and then when we stayed in, the kitchen was a pleasure to create a meal in. All in all a beautiful house. Loved the GHD hairdryer and hair straightener in each room and all the books dotted about were fabulous.' - October 2018
