Tregathenan House

Explore the beautiful Cornwall coastline from this country house, with Praa Sands, Porthleven, Falmouth, St Mawes and the Lizard Peninsula all within easy reach.

Tregathenan House, 2 miles from the historic market town of Helston, home of the world-famous Floral Dance, is the perfect period property for families or couples, whatever the season. This semi-detached, traditional, Cornish granite country house dates back to 1640, and is set within 5 acres of the owners’ gardens and meadows, which are home to the owners’ herd of alpacas, ducks and chickens. Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday from this property, which is also in a great location for exploring, with easy access to the Lizard Peninsula, the UK’s most southerly point. Visit the busy port of Falmouth, with its prestigious marina’s, National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, along with its sister castle at St Mawes. The picturesque Helford River has small pubs dotted along its banks, and small ferries provide daily services to St Mawes, Flushing and scenic trips down the river. Wonderful circular walks can be had from the property, and the area boasts some of the finest beaches in Cornwall. The rugged north coast offers visitors miles of invigorating coastal walks and wide beaches popular with surfers, as well as the quaint harbour and town of St Ives. Other places to visit include Marazion, St Michael’s Mount, Porthleven and Mousehole. The area is popular with walkers and bird and wildlife enthusiasts, and has an excellent reputation for good food, with a great selection of pubs, restaurants and cafés. Some of the UK’s best sub-tropical gardens can be found here too, include Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick. Beach 5 miles. Shop and pub 2 miles, restaurant 3 miles.
