Trengove Farm is home to five beautifully presented holiday cottages nestling amongst glorious rolling Cornish countryside mid-way between the small fishing village of Portreath and Illogan village with its heritage firmly in tin mining. Perfectly placed, guests can enjoy an abundance of attractions all around with St Ives, Mousehole, Newquay, Falmouth and the Roseland Peninsula close by.
Offering a taste of country life, Trengove is a working farm retaining much of its original character and glory. Beautifully renovated, the cottages provide the perfect blend of original features with modern conveniences, enhanced by the romance and intrigue of its former history, once being the home of William Burgess, an infamous smuggler of the 19th Century
