Pre Arrival

Our website can be found at Type ‘Trenannick Cottages’ into any search engine you will find details of our cottages with other sites. Availability on the main site is updated after every booking so is always current.

Booking enquiries can be made by e-mail or by telephone 01566 781443.

The nearest train station is Bodmin about 35 minutes away by car, but if you are arriving from anywhere other than Cornwall the best station would be Exeter about an hour away by car. There are no significant bus routes in our local area and certainly none within three miles.

We are always on site to welcome you into the cottages and as we live in the farmhouse we are available most of the time if you have any questions or issues.

Arrival and Car Parking Facilities

There is a private parking driveway for two cars located directly in front of The Roundhouse.

On arrival please come to the farmhouse to let us know you have arrived and we will show you into your cottage. Guests can arrive after 4.00pm and are requested to leave by 10.00am on the last day of your stay.

A welcome folder is available in the cottage which gives you more information on the cottage, places to eat, and visit in the local area together with useful numbers. In addition there is a folder with instructions on how to use the appliances like the log burner and washer/dryer in case of difficulty.
