Hidden amongst the wildflowers, a quaint cobbled-stone cottage awaits. Trepigge is our romantic hideout set on the Tremayne Farm Estate in the heart of Cornish countryside, an idyll of rural bliss. A heavenly haven nestled between the wilds of Frenchman’s Creek and Helford River; this rural beauty is a darling bolthole for an escape with your beau. A vision of country chic style and lovely vintage touches, our swoon-worthy sojourn is the ideal spot for your next romantic getaway. Relish afternoons of rambling the surrounding country trails or adventure along the Helford River’s edge, for dreamy days spent in a Cornish reverie. Finding yourself lost in nature has never been so spellbinding, just perfect for couples looking to escape into the depths of magical Cornwall. From tractors bumbling by, to paddock roaming horses for company – this truly is country life at its most charming. When the countryside wanderlust is calling, there is nowhere you’d rather be.

Living and dining

From the moment you walk through its quaint barn door, the aura of calm at Trepigge is undeniable. Exploring each room as they peel off from the main corridor entrance, the divine luxury of interiors and sumptuous touches know no limits. Simple rustic charm compliments the subtle inclusion of contemporary comfort, crafting the very best of both worlds. Trepigge boasts a hearty slice of Cornish allure; we’re talking traditional slate underfoot, exposed beams and delicious glimpses of original stone. A recipe for perfection and a feast for the eyes, from the artful scattering of vintage books awaiting your discovery, to a bounty of botanical artefacts – immerse yourself in this rural refuge from reality.

The snug study lies off the main walkway, with a Loaf desk perfectly placed beneath the mystical window view over lush rolling fields. Lose yourself in a quiet moment, hunker down on the cushion-clad daybed and devour your current read with a coffee in hand – pure bliss.

Trepigge’s central corridor then flows through to the heart of the living area, where you’ll find an open plan kitchen and living room. Simply sleek kitchen interiors sit perfectly with the barn’s more rustic styles, whilst you’ll uncover all the amenities you could possibly wish for to cook up a romantic delicacy. The kitchen boasts an electric AEG oven and hob, complete with a microwave, fridge and separate freezer to store that all important ice for your favourite tipple. For all your everyday needs, you’ll find a washing machine with dryer and dishwasher on hand. When feasting at the sweet dining table for two, you may find yourself lost in the view rather than your lover’s eyes – those far reaching countryside vistas are just impossible to overlook!

On chilly afternoons, strike a match to ignite the mesmerising flames of your roaring wood burner and relish a slow moment in this heavenly hideout. For cosy evenings in, cuddle up on the gorgeous grey Loaf sofa with a book in hand, or there’s a Smart TV for the perfect film night with your beau.

Sleeping and bathing

You’ll find the sumptuous bedroom, with a super comfy king size bed in romantic shades of charcoal grey, lovingly adorned in the cosiest cushions and throws. With gorgeous beams overhead for that traditionally rustic feel, you’ll have nothing but a serene slumber in this divan of dreams. Awaken to the soft notes of birdsong and golden light leaking through the glass door. Step out onto the adjacent patio where you’ll find a table and chairs, an idyllic spot for taking your morning coffee into nature. On drearier dawns, cosy up with breakfast in bed and indulge in a slow morning moment to ease you into the day. There’s also a delightful day bed in the study, just perfect if you’re bringing along a little one.

Begin your days with an invigorating shower for those refreshing moments in Trepigge’s oh-so-sweet shower room. There's also a heated rail to keep your towels perfectly warm and fluffy.

Outside Space

Our charming little cottage overlooks a rolling meadow, with a country chic seating area outdoors to relax and immerse in those breath-taking views. Take afternoon tea in the garden at the quaint table and chairs; you might just find yourself transported to another realm entirely from beneath the vintage parasol. With a plethora of surrounding trails to explore, take a picnic amongst the wildflowers and discover a dreamy spot to get lost in an afternoon daze. On balmy summer evenings, you may even be greeted by the nearby ponies as they wander the pasture - this is true country living, with a hearty dash of magic.

If your heart belongs on the water, you can bring and store your own boat at Trepigge for those perfect afternoons at Tremayne Quay, where you can launch onto the blissful Helford River.

Such a beautiful little barn, comfy and gorgeous interior with amazing views from the garden! Thanks for a brilliant holiday

What a beautifully tranquil location at Trepigge - wonderful views every home comfort and super welcome from Alison with champagne and stunning lilies. Tea time was special too with delicious brownies made by Jon. If you love them like us ask for the recipe!

Thank you again for a lovely break!

Beautiful cottage and great host. Loved it

Trepigge is one of the best cottages we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a few!!) having been renovated and furnished to a very high standard. It provides the perfect rural retreat in a very peaceful, idyllic location. Lots of great walks and lovely eateries all within easy reach of the cottage. Alison is a great host, there if needed but also very respectful of your privacy. Would highly recommend.

We were greeted extremely warmly on arrival and then found a bottle of champagne on ice with homemade brownies waiting for us in the kitchen… a wonderful surprise and treat! Trepigge was extremely comfortable, exactly as per the photos with gorgeous views. It was a great base to explore The Lizard.


A fantastic cottage in a rural and bucolic setting in Cornwall. Very quiet location. Cottage is well furnished, well equipped with all the modern amenities.

One of the cosiest places we’ve ever stayed. Beautiful decor and furnishings. Lovely remote location with great walks in the local area. The perfect get away. We hope to return soon.

The cottage was fantastic! Beautiful location and interiors. The Champagne and brownies were a lovely treat and the communication was great.

Lovely quiet location and champagne and brownies left for our arrival - what more to like!


Very comfortable and clean with all the facility’s needed to make a home from home experience.

Superb location, accommodation and hosting. Perfect place to relax and unwind.

We had an excellent week at Trepigge, the cottage is stylish, comfortable and well equipped and spotlessly clean. Alison the owner was extremely helpful and friendly and we had a thoroughly relaxing break. It's a great base to enjoy the lesser known parts of the Helford river as well as the Lizard peninsular.

A peaceful and spacious retreat with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday.

This is a perfect spot for a weekend break, very rural and isolated, but within easy reach of some great walks and points of interest. The property itself is traditional but at the same time kitted out in a very modern, chic way, spotlessly clean and very high end accommodation. We had a great weekend.

Fantastically well appointed gorgeous little cottage in an extraordinary part of Cornwall, the Lizard. Local shop, villages, restaurants and walks all super-accessible from Trepigge by car, but nothing like your regular communte!

We loved our stay at Trepigge. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, and the the host was fantastic and provided us with great recommendations in the area. We would definitely stay again.

'Thank you very much for the warm welcome of champagne and brownies. Absolutely delicious and unexpected but much appretiated. We have had a lovely stay at Trepigge and have enjoyed the excellent accomodation and facilities. Despite the weather not being the best we have managed to explore the area on foot everyday and only used the car once to buy some more robust wet weather gear in Helston! It has been a throughly enjoyable stay' -September 2021

'Great stay and loved the decor and layout. Alison was a brilliant hostess- helpful but unintrusive- she responded very quickly when we asked for a few things. The two horses Rugo and Flynn make the perfect place to wake up and enjoy the countryside, let alone the magnificent views. Beautiful barn and gorgeous county' - September 2021

'Wonderfully relaxing week in a gorgeous setting. So peaceful and quiet. Thank you Alison for your attention to detail - just perfect' - September 2020

'It's been so lovely here at Trepigge. The cottage is solid and cosy and it is so quiet here too. We loved the night sky, the peace, the country lanes full of wild flowers in the hedgerow. Walking to Helford, having lunch at the Shipwright Arms and walking back was a pleasure. Also the ferry from Helford to Helford passage on to Gunwahalloe and a box lunch at the Ferry Boat Inn was a lovely day. We launched our canoe from St Anthony and paddled around there and Gillan Creek. Walking to Tremayne Quay at any time of day/evening was great (Kestle Barton for tea, The New Inn for a piny). The walking books gave us another couple of walks to enjoy. We have been provided with everything here for a really gorgeous holiday thank you! Except perhaps an extra week or two of course!' - September 2020

'A truly wonderful week at Trepigge. Peaceful and relaxing away from the crowds. Can highly recommend so many places but for sure worth visiting Helford, Coverack, Fat Apples Cafe for their chocolate and banana bread, Kennack Sands for an early morning walk on the beach, Tremayne Quay walk is stunning and yesterday we explored the beautiful coves - Padgagarrach, Bosanan and Pensence - all walkable along a stunning trail from Helford car park. Alison has been the perfect host, we will be back to stay again. Thank you to all the team!' - August 2020

'A beautiful mini break for a birthday treat. Gorgeous setting, biking to Helford and sunbathing in the garden...heaven' August 2020

'We had a wonderful stay at Trepigge! Alison was a wonderful, thoughtful host who gave us great recommendations for the area and consistently went out of her way to make our stay special. There are many great walks nearby, and visits to nearby Kynance Cove, Lizard, Trengwainton and Trewithen gardens are musts. For food, our nearby highlights were the following:

- Gear Farm just down the road has great fresh pasties and sausage rolls

- Dales Quality Family Butchers has great meat in Helston

- Wavecrest at Lizard point has a great terrace view of the cost and fantastic food to booy

- It's a bit far but the Great Cornish Food Store in Truro (attached to a Waitrose) has a fantastic array of local meats, fish, produce and more.

We look forward to being back!' - August 2020
