Testimonials for Trehalvin Holiday Cottages South East Cornwall

Frances & Kevin - Smugglers Cottage - 4th September 2021

We've had a wonderful time at Smugglers Cottage.  The cottage had everything we needed.  Well equipped and very, very clean.  Wine and milk were greatly appreciated.  Peter and Val are excellent hosts.  Lots of good tips of places to visit and eat.  Our favourite place is Talland Bay.  

C U next year, Frances and Kevin

Abby and Henry ( Sams Cabin)

Lovely and relaxing week.  So peaceful!  The swimming pool was a bit of a hit with my 2 year old.

Lots to see and do locally.  The cabin had everything we needed.  Pete and Val are most helpful and nothing was too much trouble.  We will definitely be back :)

The Bardens ( Sams Cabin)

We've had a super week staying at Sam's Cabin.  It has been a great place to have as a base to explore beautiful Cornwall.  We've been lucky with the weather so have spent lots of time at the beach.  The favourite beaches have been Kingsand/ Cawsand (for the rock pools and rock scrambling), Marazion beach (opposite St Michael's Mount), which had beautiful clear water for swimming and Pendower.

Our children (4 and 6) have had THE BEST TIME using the pool and park and we all stayed up late to star gaze and watch for shooting stars - amazing! 

P.s for anyone gluten free.  The Catch in Looe does great gluten free fish and chips!

Dave, Penny, Alex and Austin (Daisy Lodge)

We have had a lovely week here.  Alex and Austin had a great time in the pool and playing in the field.  Beautiful views and peaceful countryside too.  We had lots of fun crabbing in Looe and exploring Polperro which is fantastic.  Thankyou to Peter and Val for looking after us so well and being so welcoming.  We hope to be back some day!

The Humphry's Family (Daisy Lodge)

We have enjoyed a wonderful week here at Daisy Cottage.  As everyone has said, the pool is absolutely glorious!  Peter and Val had prepared the lodge so that we were extremely comfortable.  Having our door open up to a field is perfect when you have an active 6 year old boy who loves kicking footballs.  Mevagissey and Fowey were lovely as well as Looe and Polperro.  Football and golf in St Austell was fun (get there early as it gets busy) and the crabbing was excellent.  We hope to come back!

Charley Padfield

"Amazing hidden gem. To sit and listen to NOTHING whilst sat outside is something else. Perfect get away if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of life. Ideal for local beach's and attractions such as Looe & Polperro. But only an hour away from the North Cornwall coast. The dogs loved the beach at Seaton."

Gwen, Stewart, Lily and Benjamin Moore (Sams Cabin)

"We have had a truly wonderful week at Sam's Cabin, it is absolutely perfect for our little family.  From the welcome gifts ( that glass of wine and chocolate biscuit after the kids went to bed was heavenly).  The beautiful swimming pool, which was enjoyed despite the weather to the lush green grass in front of the cabin for our two year old to play.  


Sam's Cabin is ideally located, there is lots to do locally, we spent two days exploring Looe and Polperro (including a boat trip around Looe Island).  We also went further afield to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Lands End, Healey's Ryder Farm and Perranporth.  We also loved The Eden Project.  Thank you Val and Pete for a wonderful week."

The Mansfields (Sam's Cabin)

It's our second time staying, and once again thanks, we have had a lovely time!  The pool is always so lovely and clean and warm.  My sons loved playing in the pool for hours on end.  Pete and his wife are always welcomng and the lodge and surroundings are so peaceful.  We will be back again soon!

Tracy, Ian, Vinny ad Evan ( Sams Cabin)

Our grand-children (13 and 7) have had an absolute ball!  Lots of space to play and they loved the pool.  Everywhere was spotless and the fresh flowers, biscuits etc were a lovely welcoming touch.  Thankyou Peter and Val - we hope to see you again x

Petra, Dan, Chris and Thomas Lodewyk (Daisy Lodge)

We had a fantastic time here at this gorgeous place!  Nature everywhere around us here is amazing, people are so friendly, the house is great and oh, the view from the house is breathtaking!  But most of all, the owner and his wife were so friendly and helpful with everything.  Peter is the nicest man ever!  We enjoyed it very much over here!  Sad to go home and leave this special place with its sweet owners.  Take care Peter and Val and hopefully see you again!

Mark, Sabine, Anton and Matilda (Daisy Lodge)

We have had a wonderful week in Daisy Lodge!  The setting has suited us perfectly.  Peaceful with plenty of space for the children to run around and the use of the beautifully set, well kept pool made staying home a treat.  Lots of fascinating places to explore, we have barely scratched the surface!  We very much hope to come back to Daisy Lodge next year.

Thank you Peter and Valerie!

P.s If the cat is gone, it's because I accidentally adopted her......;)

Matt, Nicola, Oliver and Verity (Daisy Lodge)

Really lovely lodge, very comfortable.  Everything you need to enjoy your stay.  So much space for kids.   Peter was so welcoming...thank you for everything!

The pool was amazing, what a great addition to top off the holiday!!  We had a lovely week, well relaxed and will recommend to others.  Many thanks!!!

Ps.  The kids fell in love with Jessica the Cat!

The Paine Family (Cider Cottage)

"We didn’t leave a message in your visitor book as we didn’t have a pen! I’ve realised how digital we all are this week!

Instead I thought I would write you an email you can use and say thank you for having us.  


Trehalvin is set in a wonderfully peaceful location and is absolutely beautiful, Cider Cottage is full of charm and our children loved their bedroom in the roof. 

Peter and Val are so friendly and really do make you feel at home, we really appreciated the wine and basics provided on our arrival, it’s clear that a lot of thought has been put into the guests experience. 

The pool didn’t disappoint and was the highlight of the holiday for our children with many hours spend splashing around.

Again thank you for having us!"

Steve and Linda Tinkler from Grantham, Lincs (Daisy Lodge)

"Daisy Lodge can only be described as fantastic - from its crisp white bed linen to the superbly presented soft furnishings the whole feeling is of quality and attention to detail.  When you add in the beautiful view, a swimming pool and hosts who genuinely believe that their guests should have the best it is not difficult to say that Daisy Lodge delivers on all it promises.  Thank you Peter and Val.  This is well worth sending across to Cornish Cottage Holidays."

The Macartney's (Sams Cabin)

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Trehalvin but the first year we have stayed in Sam's Cabin (we usually stay in Daisy Lodge).

We love it here and just immediately relax when we get here.  Thank you once again for a lovely relaxing week.  We hope to be back again next year.

The Bond Family (Sams Cabin)

We've had an amazing week staying in Sam's Cabin with friends.  The kids have loved the field, playground and especially the pool!

Cornwall has been great - The Eden Project, Looe, Polperro, Charlestown were all fab, but best of all were the beaches and star gazing outside - truly amazing to see so many shooting stars!

Hope we can return soon x

Lana, Joe, Olivia and Kai (Daisy Lodge)

We have had the most amazing time in this beautiful place.  The lodge is perfect, the nature and space around us is just breathtaking!

Our children have loved the swimming pool, and would have happily not left the site at all.

Thank you for our wonderful stay and for being so lovely.  A perfect holiday, we will be back as often as we can. xx

The Shormans (Daisy Lodge)

What a wonderful time, a wonderful place and a wonderful host in Peter.  The sun shone and we were torn between beautiful beaches and lazy mornings by the well kept, deep blue pool.

Sight seeing in Looe and Polperro made for fun evenings.  The Crumplehorn pub in Polperro had live music Sunday evening.  Also several trips to the waves on the north shore.  Love hearts from Jessie (aged 4).

Lynn & Alan (Daisy Lodge)

"We've throughly enjoyed our weeks' stay in Daisy Lodge.  The Lodge is well kitted out and comfortable.  The bed was comfy and we slept well.  Thank you Peter and Val for the welcoming milk, biscuits, flowers and wine.  Very much appreciated.  We loved the peace and quiet here and the view - we will miss it!  We were able to see the night sky very clearly.  Heard owls and saw a bat or two.  We were visited by Jessica the cat most days who's very friendly.  Visited coastal villages - Looe, Polperro, Charlestown, Mevagissey, Falmouth.  Visited Eden Project too!  We had a good meal at the Little Barn, St Martin.  All in all an excellent stay."

The Fenton-Brown family from Wiltshire (Daisy Lodge)

"We have had a great week in this very comfortable Lodge. It is perfectly located to visit both the South and North coasts.  We took the train to Plymouth from Liskeard and went to the Aquarium.  The Eden Project is less than one hour away and The Hall Walk around Fowey was another highlight. Thank you for a lovely holiday."
