“A warm welcome from Jo and Tom and a great retreat to stay at and use as a base to discover Cornwall. The Old Stables is a cosy well maintained period cottage, within the glorious grounds of Tregrehan Gardens which were a beautiful surprise. Tucked out of the way up the long driveway it is situated in a chilled out setting, but is in easy reach of many of the local beaches, coves, villages and towns as well as attractions such as the Eden Project. We spent 10 days here and this went too quick so hope to be back some time soon. Thanks”.

“A unique and cosy Mews cottage ideal for two people. Centrally located to visit many places of interest in the area”.
The Old Stables, September 2020
“The Old Stables is a cosy haven, set in the midst of a spectacular parkland and botanical garden, a cab ride from the local station and just a stroll away from the sea. In short, paradise. Jo was a fantastic host: all communication was timely, clear, and useful. Jo herself was very welcoming, full of warmth and care and a wealth of local knowledge and treasures. She and the team are clearly working very hard and diligently to keep premises hygienic and deep-cleaned and I had total faith that all steps were being taken for safety throughout. The apartment itself is glorious and even better than the photos would suggest: very spacious, with lots of room for kit while cosy and quick to warm with the storage heaters and especially the stove. The balcony is a real sun trap and the whole place is soaked in the smell of honeysuckle and the sound of the breeze in the high trees around. It felt very private and peaceful. Wandering the gardens is a treat – they’re huge and quietly magical. All the charms and amenities of the area are within easy reach by car, and the housebook which Jo has put together is crammed with fantastic ideas for walks, places to visit and things to do. Best of all, driving off the road up the winding drive to the flat is a real escape from the crowds of Cornwall – you’re in your own world at the Old Stables. The location is ideal for exploring mid-Cornwall and it’s a 40min drive to the north Coast for a change of scene and scenery if ever required. We can’t recommend the old Stables enough – a slice of National Trust grandness and tranquility, at Airbnb value and bless with an energetic and enthusing host in Jo. We can’t wait to come back!”

Gamekeeper’s Cottage, February 2020
“We holiday in Cornwall every year and have stayed many times at Tregrehan cottages. This was our first time in Gamekeepers Cottage and we were not disappointed. We arrived on a dismal February day and were greeted by a wonderful fire and golden daffodils. Jo is always really friendly and helpful making you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The Cottage is really well equipped and even has electric blankets on the beds which is fantastic on a cold evening. Our dogs loved their walks in the beautiful grounds. It truly is a magical place with loads of atmosphere and we will hopefully be back soon”.
Mews, January 2020
“Thank you, Jo and David, for another wonderful Winter holiday in the ‘Mews’! We have also loved watching the birds in the garden and on the bird feeders – including a nuthatch! A jay was also spotted, too, just outside the garden! Thank you so much again for everything. With love,
Mews, September 2019
“We stayed for a fantastic break in the Mews accommodation which were very clean, comfortable and had everything you could need. The private garden was great to eat breakfast or to sit outside in the evening enjoying a quiet glass of wine. Lots of fantastic info about things to do from Jo who was a welcoming, great host. We will come again!”
Coach House, July 2019
‘The Coach House is a lovely property tucked away in a formal garden. It has it’s own little walled garden making it a very safe spot for dogs and children. The house is lovely and quirky with a high ceilinged kitchen and large sitting room. The master bedroom is also huge. It was all very clean with fresh flowers left for us. It is a great spot for the Eden Project and Lost Gardens very close. We hope to stay again’
Coach House, July 2019
“The Coach House is very pretty, comfortable and peaceful, there was everything we needed for our stay. The hosts were very welcoming and everywhere was very clean. It is in a good location for visiting other places.”
Mews, June 2019
“We had a wonderful 4 nights at the Mews Cottage, such a wonderful location in a fabulous garden. Walking to the Eden Project in 20 minutes was a real highlight. The cottage was really cosy, well equipped kitchen for meals and lovely to eat breakfast outside on the terrace every morning.”
Coach House, June 2019

Coach House, May 2019
“A really lovely place to stay, we loved the walled garden at the Coach House, having access to the beautiful garden and parkland. Some excellent places to visit nearby, all in all a good choice for a family. Jo is lovely and Dave her caretaker was very helpful to when we arrived”.
Coach House, April 2019
‘This place is awesome! It looks very good, it has all you need and Jo is extremely kind and helpful. A walking distance from Eden Garden. There’s also an amazing garden behind the house worth visiting’
Mews, February 2019
‘Thank you, Jo and David, for looking after us so well again, including the log burner going strong, which is a wonderful welcome when we arrive! We have had another great holiday – we absolutely love coming here in the Autumn and Winter, it’s such a lovely place to stay and Cornwall is just as beautiful at this time of the year!
We both feel so at home here and cannot wait to return!!’

Gamekeeper’s Cottage, New Year, January 2019
‘Jo’s cottage is the perfect place to have a good, peaceful and quiet time. It’s located in the middle of a very big park, no noise at all or maybe only birds around. The garden close to the house, with very old trees is absolutely fantastic. Jo was the perfect host. She gave us a lot of very good tips to visit the country, to find good restaurants etc…we couldn’t expect more for our holidays!!! And I’m pretty sure we will come back with friends next time! I totally recommend this place!!!! No hesitation!’

‘Ideal location for peace and quiet’
This was our second stay at Tregrehan, and we loved it as much as the first time. The Mews cottage is lovely and the grounds of the Tregrehan estate are tranquil and beautiful.
Coach House, July 2018
‘Wir waren in Jo´s einzigartiger Unterkunft leider nur für 2 Nächte. Das alte Cottage liegt direkt am sehr schönen “Tregrehan Garden” und hat zusätzlich noch einen eigenen, von sehr schönen alten Mauern umgebenen großen Garten. Schon die Zufahrt durch eine Herde Schafe war außergewöhnich. Dieses Haus mit seiner tollen Umgebung ist was für Genießer. Als wir ankamen, hat uns Jo sehr freundlich empfangen und uns viele Tipps gegeben. Wir können Jo´s Cottage absolut empfehlen.’
Old Stables, July 2018
Ein kleines Paradies
Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ließ nichts zu wünschen übrig und die Vermieter und das Personal waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Mews, July 2018
Jo is een geweldige gastvrouw, ze is erg aardig en behulpzaam. De accommodatie was prima in orde, schoon en ruim met alle voorzieningen die we wensten!
Mews, June 2018
‘The Mews was absolutely perfect for us’.
Our stay was superb. Everyone at Tregrehan was so welcoming and helpful it bowled us over. The environment is just so relaxed and easy and the surroundings very impressive. The actual cottage suited us down to the ground – have to say the weather helped – but the lovely secluded garden was great. When we had a “minor” technical transport problem the sympathetic help was fantastic. Yes, a truly memorable couple of weeks!
Coach House, June 2018
‘Comfortable walled retreat’
We loved our stay at the Coach House, comfortable, well equipped property for our group of eight plus two dogs, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. The pictures do not do it justice. Jo made us very welcome and gave us helpful tips for visiting the area. Easy walk to Eden Project and just a short drive to the coastal path. Would highly recommend staying here.

Gamekeeper’s Cottage, June 2018
Had a truly magical stay at Gamekeepers cottage, a beautiful place to call home for a few days. Ideally located near historic Charlestown and the famous Eden Project, we enjoyed some lovely days out as well as hiring mountain bikes, and simply wandering through the idyllic gardens. Thanks Jo for welcoming us and we will definitely be back
Coach House, June 2018
‘perfect location and lovely cottage’
What a beautiful spot. Delightful cottage, with gorgeous private enclosed court yard in the most wonderful grounds, we all loved it, including the dog
Old Stables, June 2018
‘Charming stay ideally located for so many destinations’
The accommodation was comfortable and Jo was very welcoming and helpful. The gardens to which you have access were a real eye opener with huge trees and views. The Eden project really was a few minutes walk, Charlestown with its historic interest and modern quality restaurants was a few minutes drive. St Austell brewery is a good trip, Polpean and Pentewan beaches and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mevagissey and Fowey all just a 20 minute drive or less
Gamekeeper’s Cottage, May 2018
A super location, perfect for the dogs. Very peaceful yet close to amenities. The cottage was lovely and lots of little extras,especially the lit fire on arrival.
Mews, May 2018
The Mews is very homely, comfortable and in a perfect location. Beautiful gardens and 20 minutes walk to the Eden Project. Lots of birds around too – a pair of swallows nesting in the next door building. A great bonus. Jo is the perfect host – all the best touches – camellias from the garden and the wood stove lit for when we arrived. 10/10
Coach House, July 2017
Having stayed in well over 100 holiday properties over the last 20 years, I am not easily impressed 😉 The Coach House at Tregrehan however was superb. Exceptionally well equipped (my son loved the secret toy cupboard) and conveniently located close to everything one might need (beaches, lovely walks & a supermarket)!
The Coach House has its own large walled garden which is perfect if you have a dog (not even the most athletic dog can escape), the walls are probably over 20 feet high! There is also a huge field in which you can exercise your dog whenever it suits (i.e 7am in the morning with a cup of tea in hand)!
The staff are super friendly and passionate about their work – always happy to chat and provide any info needed – my son loved talking to David.
All in all a fantastic & relaxing place to base yourself – thank you!

“We will definitely be back !!”
Just thought I’d drop you a note to say what a lovely time my sister and I had last week. The Coach House was great for us and the dogs – found loads of walking and other lovely things to do.
Old Stables, June 2017
“Wonderful location, stunning grounds and gardens plus great accommodation” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We stayed at the Old Stables which was a perfect choice for the four of us and can easily sleep six. It felt like home from home with everything we needed for a relaxing few days. Lovely touches from Jo such as fresh flowers, maps and info on what to see and do and even dish washer tablets all made staying here so comfortable.
We loved the walks, beautiful gardens, listening to the birds from the terrace and the visits from the owners dogs. The smell of jasmine whilst having my morning cup of tea was an added bonus.
Eden is just a 15 mins walk away and the Lost Gardens of Heligan a short drive so a perfect location…beaches and the lovely harbours of Fowey and Mevagissey add to the charm of staying here. Thank you Jo and Tom for sharing your home.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Mews, May 2017
“My stay at Tregrehan Garden Cottages was very special – the grounds are timeless, peaceful, and elegant. I stayed in the Mews and loved my outdoor garden space. The Mews was equipped with very thoughtful kitchen items and the bathroom was updated with smart modern amenities. As an added bonus, you’re right on the grounds of the Tregrehan Gardens! I’m keeping this place a secret!”
“What a glorious place to stay!”
Old Stables, May 2017
…It was an unexpected surprise to drive up to the Old Stables past lambs gambling across a Capability Brown landscape. The cottage is comfortable and spacious with everything you need, even a wood burning fire and electric blankets for chilly nights.
The location is excellent for days out, there are several local beaches, The Eden Project is close by and Tesco is just a few minutes along the road.
The Tregrehan gardens are glorious. We enjoyed having exploratory walks and talking to the very knowledgeable staff.
We have already recommended Tregrehan Gardens to friends. I just hope we get in before it gets fully booked next year!

“We will be returning again very soon!”
Mews, New Year 2016
We have stayed in The Mews several times over the last six years – a brilliant place to stay at any time of year. It is great if you want to be out and about or just staying in and relaxing – we have done both ! It is very well situated because of its central location but also tucked away in its own beautiful parkland setting. Thank you all so much for everything you do to make our time here so special.

Gamekeeper’s Cottage, November 2016
I can not recommend this cottage any higher! Clean and comfortable with the most amazing log burner that kept the whole cottage warm. The location is truly stunning with Game Keepers Cottage being part of a beautiful country house estate that boast a huge park and picturesque gardens. I true gem of a find and we’ll be sure to book again.

“We had a really nice time in Jo’s cottage. The place is really nice with sheeps and beautiful garden all around. Even very close from the Eden Park project. The accommodation is well equiped”
“WOW what a fantastic place”
Spry’s, October 2015
“… the minute we drove through the entrance gates the scenery was spectacular, the cottage itself is lovely and cosy and so picturesque,it has every thing you need with a great kitchen, a lovely en suite bedroom and a cosy lounge, it is so quiet in the grounds and garden we absolutely loved it, it is a great base for eden project being only a mile away, it is also very central to exploring cornwall with the north coast only being an hour drive away and we made it to st michaels mount in an hour as well, jo was so helpful with looking after us including many tips for the area, we even got a personal tour of rhe gardens before we left, we can’t rate this cottage enough, we will definately back in the spring many thanks michael and rosemary”
Mews, mid-June 2015
Thank you so much – we have had a lovely little break away in this charming little apartment. We love the quirkiness of the beams and the bathroom is beautiful. It was a great place for us to easily get to Eden, Heligan and even the beach! We also couldn’t have wished for better weather. Jo and Tom the grounds are stunning and well manicured, you are lucky to live here. I am sure we will be back one day and will be recommending you to others. Thanks again

“So much more than just staying in a cottage”
Guests latest stay April 2015
We have stayed at the Old Stables three times. The reason we bring our family back is because staying at Tregrehan is so much more than just a staying in a cottage: the grounds and gardens make it really special. The Old Stables is great for families. We love the big kitchen diner and spill out on to the terrace for breakfast and early evening drinks. The lounge and and the wonderful wood burner are perfect for evenings. Our two children have a bedroom each and there is space to bring a friend too. And all this was combined with a lovely warm welcome from Jo and her team.

“A peaceful holiday in a perfect setting”
5 of 5 stars Guests latest stay in the Mews May 2015
Have stayed here many times over several years which speaks for itself. The property is as described and is clean and well maintained. There is everything that you need and the owner and staff are always helpful and friendly. It is ideal for two people and the wood burner makes it cosy and comfortable whatever time of year. Within walking distance of the Eden Project and well located for beaches and countryside and other houses and gardens, although will you want to leave the garden at Tregrehan?
“A magical week”
5 of 5 stars Guests early May 2015
We stayed in the Coach House, which was perfect for us. My mother (who has health issues) had her own bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor next to the kitchen. My sister in law & I had our own bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom, which worked well. Even though the weather was on the chilly side, we were lovely and cosy with the woodburners, with easy access to the woodstore. The gardens are stunning at this time of year and the walled garden we visited on a number of occasions is beautiful, Richard was extremely knowledgable and obvious he loves his job. Jo made us feel very welcome and made sure we had every thing we needed for our stay. Which I have to say was magical.
“We love it – go!”
5 of 5 stars Guests April 2014
We have just returned from our fourth trip to stay in the holiday rentals attached to these beautiful gardens and the number of repeat visits made by many people speaks volumes about the way people feel about this very special place. I’m only a (very) amateur gardener so I’m sure much of it is wasted on me but I can appreciate the beauty and tranquility of this place. The gardens always feel like somewhere you’re the first person to discover and there are many hidden little spots to find as you wander round. Whilst our daughter was not happy that the swing had been ‘health and safety-ed’ out of existence, she was, as always, more than happy collecting interesting leaves and scaring the wildlife! The houses are equally lovely. We have now stayed in 3 of the 5 properties and each has their own unique charm. They are all very comfortable and cozy; well equipped and have their own outside space to be enjoyed, as well as the communal areas. Jo, Tom and the team couldn’t be more helpful and are on hand to provide lots of useful information on places to go, shop, eat, etc. There are even bikes, scooters and other toys available for the children to play on and it’s safe to let them go and do that. Jo even found a bigger bike for our daughter and Tom supplied jump leads after a bad car day – not many places where that’s all so readily available! There’s loads to do nearby, some fantastic beaches to enjoy, and the Eden project is a short walk away. We love this place and will definitely be returning. If you’re thinking of going, just do it!

“An oasis of beauty and peace”
5 of 5 stars Guests July 2013
What a nice surprise. Have stayed at numerous holiday cottages over the years and this one beats everyone of them by a country mile.
Set in a vast garden, the Old Stables is one of the many cottages that are available for short breaks. What a lovely and well equipped property. Full of character and charm, I would recommend this to anyone.
Jo, the owner of this property was very helpful and full of information of the local places of interest.

“Quiet and relaxing”
5 out of 5 Guests October 2014
We – family of four – had a wonderful time at the Tregrehan estate. Just driving up the beautiful alley in the evening light was a treat in itself.
The Coach house has a spacious living room and kitchen – besides the 3 bedrooms – and charming inner court yard where we had our breakfasts and watched the stars coming out at night. Everything was clean and well equipped.
We had a warm welcome from Jo and found all the information you could possibly want about the area in a well sorted folder.
Tregrehan is close to the sea and a good starting point to visit the popular sites in Cornwall. Beautiful stretches of the cliff path are in easy reach. And don’t miss the beautiful Tregrehan Gardens.
“Amazing,tranquil and unique”
5 of 5 stars Guests August 2013
Have just returned (15th) from a 2 week stay in gamekeeper cottage. A very special atmosphere surrounds these beautiful gardens and holiday cottages. Birdsong and a labour of love for a garden that offers peace, stunning views, hidden treasures amongst the trees and flowers. Character and charm in abundance. The staff are so friendly and informative and keen to share their knowledge …. Impossible not to enjoy.
