Tregenza is surrounded by beautiful Cornish countryside and is situated on the southern edge of Bodmin moor in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is located in the parish of St Neot next to Golitha Falls Nature Reserve on South Draynes Farm which is no longer a working farm and today offers luxurious holiday accommodation.
Within easy reach of both coastlines with their sandy beaches and close to many of Cornwall and Devon's attractions, Tregenza is ideal for anyone wanting a beach or walking holiday and is also a perfect place for simply relaxing amongst beautiful countryside. The area offers numerous places of interest including The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Jamaica Inn and Dozmary Pool (which according to legend is the last resting place for King Arthur's sword Excalibur).
St Neot was the winner of the prestigious award 'Village of the year in England and Wales 2004' and in September 2006 it won 'Village of the Decade'! The village offers a lovely old beamed pub, a tea room, pottery, post office and a church that is famous all over the world for its 15th and 16th century stained glass windows. Just across the field from Tregenza is Golitha Falls Nature Reserve, originally part of the farm and today owned by English Nature and free for the general public to enjoy. It is a beautiful place for taking a quiet stroll along side the River Fowey and is particularly pretty during the spring months with bluebells growing under the trees in the ancient wood.
There are many wonderful walks from Tregenza with public footpaths offering breathtaking views across meadows, woods, valleys, rolling fields, Siblyback reservoir, the Cheesewring and even the coast at Looe.
Nature lovers can enjoy primroses, foxgloves, bluebells and pink campions that carpet the side of the roads during spring and summer months. Buzzards hover above and swallows visit to nest. In autumn Canadian geese can be seen migrating south for the winter and at night the sky is so clear you can study the beauty of the stars.
Whatever you are looking for, Treganza is sure to provide a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful area.
