Escape to a simpler life with Sue and Ivor


The location of Treganhoe is hard to beat, on the Penwith peninsula, close to Lands End, the ideal spot for a family holiday in Cornwall, a quiet location with stunning views. You will be staying with your friendly hosts Ivor, Sue, their son Mark and their daughter Ali, whose family have been farming the land here for the past 100 years. Treganhoe is a livestock and mixed farm that works closely with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. The rest of their animals – the chicken, sheep and pigs – you will find in the paddock close to your tented cottage.

Coast to coast

Each morning theres a decision to take - shall we head to a beautiful beach to the north or a beautiful beach to the south? Dont worry, both are less than half hours drive away. Evocative Cornish names are close by like Marazion, Sennen Cove and Porthcurno beaches, awaiting you for wild swimming, paddle-boarding, surfing or just sandcastle building. The picture postcard pretty St Ives is close by as are Penzance, the iconic St Michaels Mount and the stunning outdoor Minack Theatre. There couldn't be a better base for a family holiday in Cornwall.

If walking is your thing then stride across the moors like the caste of Poldark (much of it was filmed nearby) and take in the abandoned tin mines and Neolithic monuments like Lanyon Quoit and Men an Tol. Fine dining and excellent pubs are in abundance such as the Gurnards Head or the Tolcarne Inn but you will have a list as long as your arm by the end of your stay.

What to do at Treganhoe Farm

Since Treganhoe is a working farm, there is always something happening here. Wake up from your comfy beds in the morning and give the farmers a hand feeding the chickens, sheep and pigs - they love your attention. Enjoy the Cornish sunset whilst you grill some home cooked food from the well-stocked honesty shop or locally produced meat or fish in the fire pit outside your canvas hideaway. Unfortunately we dont take dogs at Treganhoe.

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

Pizza night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about what goes on at the farm at any time.

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

We had a fabulous time! The Featherdown ‘tents’ are brilliant. Our teenage children loved it too. Nothing was too much trouble for our lovely host Sue (who made the best fresh Cornish scones with heaps of jam & cream). All highly recommended.

This was our second time returning to Tregenhoe farm. Sue and family are the most welcoming hosts, the location is idyllic with easy access to many beautiful beaches and stunning costal walks, and the kids love the freedom to run around and feeding the chickens every morning with Sue.

The loveliest of hosts and an idyllic location. We preordered the warm welcome and arrival meal which after a long journey was ideal. Highly recommend Sue’s delicious home cooked food, fresh bread and bbq pack from the honesty shop. We enjoyed pizza night too. We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay and wished to have stayed a few days more.

Carefree and relaxing especially for the children. Open the tent flap and off they go to feed animals, collect eggs, play games & runaround endlessly! Perfect! Only negative: thought pizza night was included in package.

Perfect location to explore what Cornwall has to offer. Beautiful beaches, walks, bike rides, farms and towns. We loved it all! Treganhoe farm was a perfect location where we could stargaze away from light pollution but still close to lots of busy seaside towns too. Sue and family were fantastic hosts. The tents were amazing, the bed comfortable and the shower plenty warm and powerful. All needs were catered for. We loved every minute and will be returning

We had such a lovely holiday. The children had a great time, collecting the eggs and feeding the pigs. Treganhoe farm is in a great spot, near to lovely towns and beaches. The lodges are perfect, well equipped and surprisingly spacious. We had rain one morning and it was so cosy inside with the stove going. We will definitely be booking at Featherdown again.

Hosts Sue and Ivor provided a brilliant service and were so wonderful with our two young children. Nothing was too much. Sues home cooked meals were to die for and living the farm life for the week was a great experience for all of the family. The tents were well equipped and very cosy. A really great holiday!

An amazing holiday enjoyed by all the family, made special by Sue and Ivor's genuine Cornish hospitality. The tent was spotless when we arrived, and the honesty shop was very well stocked with both essentials and treats - the children were always keen walk to the farm to do the shopping! We enjoyed the pizza night, and Sue's homemade cooking - the Cornish Pasties were delicious, and the Cream Tea is not to be missed! Our daughter enjoyed grooming Pip the pony, and the boys enjoyed playing football, cricket and hide and seek in the field - they were always keen to get back to the farm in the evening! Sue and Ivor really care about their livestock, and Treganhoe Farm just has a lovely feel about it. We will definitely be back!
