Trenona Farm is located on The Roseland Peninsula, which is one of the quietest and most picturesque areas in Cornwall. The Roseland offers sandy beaches and cliff walks, wooded river creeks and unspoiled countryside together with pretty hamlets and villages. Don’t miss a visit to St Mawes, an ancient fishing village with its Tudor castle. You can also reach Falmouth from here via the foot ferry; a picturesque trip in itself.
Other villages of note on the Roseland Peninsula are Portscatho - a small fishing village with beautiful views across Veryan Bay to Nare Head; St Just-in-Roseland with its creekside Church set in tropical gardens; Veryan with its famous thatched roundhouses; Portloe - a quaint fishing village clinging to the cliffside; and Tregony with its distinctive Clocktower and interesting history.
We are also perfectly positioned to make the most of everything else that Cornwall has to offer. Just 10 miles away is the world-famous Eden Project with its huge biomes and open air gardens growing all sorts of plants. There’s always something interesting going on here. Close by are the Lost Gardens of Heligan, rediscovered 25 years ago and now restored to their former glory.
We’re also within easy reach of many of the locations used in filming the BBC series ‘Poldark’. Charlestown near St Austell became old Truro Harbour and a trip to the locations around the old mine engines on the north coast make for an atmospheric day out.
Cornwall’s sub-tropical climate means our gardens are second to none. Trebah, Caerhays, Trelissick and Glendurgan are all nearby and each has a fine collection of unusual plants and trees.
Truro and Falmouth are both on our doorstep and each is well worth a visit. Falmouth is a busy port town as well as being the home of Cornwall’s only University. It is a foodie’s heaven with lots of restaurants and bars and has no less than 3 beautiful sandy beaches, one of which has Blue Flag status. Pendennis Castle sits on the headland opposite St Mawes and The National Maritime Museum is another great place to visit; being home to Sir Ben Ainslie’s Olympic gold medal winning boat.
Truro is Cornwall’s only city and its stunning cathedral has to be seen. It is also the home to a wide range of shops with national chains and interesting independents both being well represented. The Royal Cornwall Museum gives an insight into Cornwall’s past; telling the story of miners, fishermen, smugglers and artists.
These are just a small selection of places to see and things to do nearby. We have an extensive supply of leaflets in the farmhouse giving information on lots more attractions or please ask us for recommendations. Don't forget the coastal path and more sandy beaches are within just a couple of miles of the farm.
