Trevethoe Farm Cottages
Ranked #10 of 30 Specialty Lodging in St Ives
Reviewed July 2, 2010

Stayed here self-catering for a week and overall we were pleased with our stay. The house is one of a pair of semis built out of granite in the traditional Cornish style and has a double bedroom and two singles. The house was in tip top decorative state and was spotlessly clean when we arrived; the level of equipment was also excellent. There was however a musty smell in a couple of rooms which indicates a bit of damp. The owner had provided a lovely cream tea for our arrival and there were fresh flowers on the table - very nice touches. The house has large lawn on two sides and there was a picnic table for eating meals outside. The location is free of any noise and overlooks open countryside. Thus far everything fine. However, the one drawback for us was the access to the house. The instructions provided to get to the house take you down a 3/4 mile farm track that is only suitable for, well farm traffic i.e tractors. We had great difficulty negotiating the track in a family car and were shocked at the state of the track. Things did take a turn for the better when on arrival at the farm, the owner said there was an alternative tarmac road into the farm with only a very short un-made section!!!! Why this information is saved until after arrival I can't imagine. There was however still a short section of dreadful lane to get from the farm to the cottage, but is was possible to leave the car at the farm and walk (a bit of a pain). This was such a shame because parking in front of the cottage was excellent. This access issue is why I marked the cottages down on location. The second slight issue was that electricity was by coin meter and this would work out expensive if the electric space heating was used. Overall the cottage was fine for us and did represent excellent value for money.
