Whitewashed and wonderful, a warm welcome awaits you at Tretawny, a peaceful country-chic retreat. With bags of original features such as beamed ceilings and of course the incredible thatched roof, this is a perfect escape for families or equally lovely for couples. We adore the warm wooden floors, simple décor and tranquil feel of this beautiful home stay, and being dog-friendly as well, it means you can bring your four-legged friend with you too.


The gorgeously snug living area is simply decorated with rough whitewashed walls, beamed ceiling and a fireplace please note the wood burner is temporarily out of use and a wood burner effect electric stove has been provided. Pretty duck egg seating offers a tranquil space in which to lounge on stormy winter nights or to keep cool on balmy sunshiny days, whilst there's flat screen Smart television for film nights. In addition, there's a fabulous playroom for youngsters to hang out with sofa, bean bag chairs, Smart television and DVD/Blu-ray player.


The open-plan kitchen and dining area offers plenty of space for entertaining, with wooden floors, whitewashed walls and beamed ceilings throughout. The kitchen comes fully equipped for even the most demanding of chefs and includes a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, fridge, freezer, wine cooler and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine.

The dining table, which easily seats eight to 10 people, is just perfect for dinner parties or late breakfasts, and we love the Welsh dresser that nestles in the corner. Outside, you'll find a dining table, chairs and parasol for summer barbeques too.


Upstairs, there are three pretty bedrooms. The master en suite bedroom has a king size bed and a flat-screen television, whilst there's a further bedroom which can be made up as either a super king or twin beds, and a cute bunk bed room, perfect for little ones but which are also adult-sized. Each are simply decorated in white with touches of grey and light blue and come with luxurious bedding.


The en suite to the master bedroom has a bath with overhead shower and a heated rail to keep towels fluffy and warm whilst there's an additional shower room upstairs and a loo downstairs.

Outdoor space

To the back is a pretty, walled garden with grassy lawn, patio and dining table and chairs. The barbeque is kept in the far-left corner of the garden (this must stay here as Tretawny is thatched). Additionally, there's an outside tap to wash wetsuits and muddy dogs.


Tretawny has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


Two well-behaved dogs are very welcome at Tretawny, we charge £35 per dog per week or short break.


There's designated parking for strictly one car only with additional parking on the lane outside of the property.

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

Stunning thatched cottage, tastefully decorated and exceptionally well equipped. Our family of 5 adults stayed here, there was ample space for us to gather comfortably together, but also space to spread out if we chose to. The kitchen/diner is perfect for family time and the bedrooms are extremely cosy. A superb find for a getaway break.

A comfortable well appointed cottage in a lovely location that is suitable for a family holiday. The welcome scones, clotted cream and jam were a lovely surprise and delicious.

Highly recommend for 4 people …..superb location and we really enjoyed our stay. Thankyou

Brilliantly equipped kitchen - had everything we needed and more. Lovely cottage with great features and really functional space for a family. Would highly recommend this cottage.

Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and well appointed, in a quiet location. Scones,jam and clotted cream was a nice tough on arrival. The garden was a lovely suntrap, and great for family BBQs. It was about a 20 minute walk to the facilities and beach in Perranporth. Also many places of interest to visit in the local area. Parking was a little tight if you have a large car, but we had no issues. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

'Immaculately tidy property with a very well stocked kitchen. Great internet connection and Netflix was really useful as we had a lot of rain! Property was warm and cosy and had everything we needed' - September 2020

'The cottage is well placed for exploring all along the SW coastal path which is stunningly gorgeous - it’s walkable into Perranporth which has a fantastic beach and virtually next door to a pub that serves very good reasonably priced food!' - September 2020
