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.
Each morning there’s a decision to take - shall we head to a beautiful beach to the north or a beautiful beach to the south? Don’t worry, both are less than half hour’s 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 cast 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.
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 don’t take dogs at Treganhoe.
