About The Retreat

The Retreat affords a detached position within the grounds of the owners' home and is a self-contained holiday rental sitting in a peaceful position in the small hamlet of Treskilling in Cornwall.

Sleeping up to six guests in three bedrooms, The Retreat is available all year round and is conveniently placed just five miles from the beautiful south coast of Cornwall, and also within easy reach of the dramatic north coast (thirteen miles) with its fantastic sandy surfing beaches.

The tranquil rural setting of The Retreat will appeal to those who enjoy walking and cycling with beautiful countryside to explore. It also makes an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of this beautiful part of Cornwall which include:

  • The Luxulyan Valley - a beautiful wooded valley, designated a world heritage site providing a peaceful place to walk with the dogs and children.
  • Clay Trails - a network of trails suitable for cycling, walking or horse-riding that criss-cross the old china clay works and meander their way alongside lakes and through wooded areas.
  • The world famous Eden Project - famous and a must for any visitor to Cornwall. A fascinating horticultural and environmental experience just two miles from The Retreat which can be reached by car, foot or bike.
  • The picturesque Lost Gardens of Heligan - delightful gardens just twenty five minutes away by car. Two hundred acres of gardens which include a lush subtropical jungle valley, Victorian kitchen garden and wildlife projects.
  • Charlestown - just ten minutes away, this historic Georgian harbour with a shipwreck museum provides plenty of eating establishments where you can relax and watch the world go by.
  • Fowey - a picturesque vibrant harbour town with narrow streets lined with shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants, Fowey is a fun place to visit where you can take a boat trip up the Fowey River to explore the bird life or the ferry over to Polruan. For the energetic, there are fantastic cliff walks from Fowey where you can take in spectacular sea views.
  • Mevagissey - a traditional Cornish working fishing village with its harbour and narrow streets. From here you can take the Mevagissey Ferry to Fowey.
  • Beaches - Too many to mention but a fantastic selection from sheltered sandy coves to long stretches of sandy beaches ideal for surfing and body boarding.

Whether you enjoy walking, cycling, riding, fishing, golf or going to the beach, everything is within easy reach of The Retreat and it is an ideal place from which to explore Cornwall's many delights.
