This place was so beautiful. The pods contains everything that you need. I will be returning. It was as comfortable as a hotel with the freedom of camping. Jason and Selina are so nice and hospitable.

“Wish this was my life!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We love it so much here. This is our 2nd visit and it's just as excellent and just as spotless as before. The pods are so well equipped and the cleanest place I've ever stayed!! It's so peaceful here but with plenty to do locally. The owners are so helpful and friendly and put so much thought and effort into making your stay perfect, but aren't at all in your face. I'd definitely recommend ordering the food hampers - delicious!! We're always sad to go home but we'll be back!! Keep doing what you're doing Trecombe!! :)
.....oh my only possible suggestion would be adding a baby swing somewhere but plenty to entertain the older children :)

Great place to stay. As others have said what a find! In the middle of nowhere, with no tv or internet i did wonder if we had done the right thing. However didn't miss them one bit.. Pods were lovely and very comfortable clean and warm. We will definitely be back again soon.

“What a find!”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

When we found Trecombe online, we thought it looked like quite an interesting place, and we weren't wrong. The pods provide you with the perfect home from home for the duration of your holiday, and are very well equipped. All space is made use of, and all appliances work well. The animal themed bed linen is a very nice touch.

The setting is beautiful, there are lots of interesting walks around the lakes and there are several boats for rowing in (which we did everyday and loved). We don't have children ourselves, but can see how brilliant Trecombe would be for children and adults alike (refreshingly the play area caters for both young and older children).

The owners are very friendly and have created a really special little gem. Overall, it far exceeded our expectations and we fully expect to return next year.

“Going back.”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed last year for a week, loved the whole experience , the pods are great, loved hearing my 13 year old and 9 year old giggling while playing on the rowing boat. We had BBQs and lit the fire every night. So we are going back this week, with more family. Must be good as driving from Bromley .see you soon little pods..

“Sets the standard in glamping!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Absolutely superb pods in excellent surroundings and totally sets the standard for glamping in cornwall. You'd be disappointed staying anywhere else! The pods are so well equipped, so clean, we didn't really need to bring anything with us. We shall be sad to leave here on Friday but will be booking again for next year! Our hosts were lovely and friendly too. The row boat on the lake is good fun, the BBQ is great, lodge house is great idea (you can pick up charcoal and firewood). Only 5-10 mins away from beaches too.

“Simply fantastic”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Found this place on the Internet whilst looking for somewhere for my friends and I to stay on our annual fishing trip. The communication was superb from the very first contact, every detail was covered and we couldn't have been happier... Glamping really doesn't do this place justice, the whole place was spotless, the pods were fantastic, the facilities superb and the area should be listed as a place of Cornish natural beauty.
Whether you want to cook in the kitchens, barbecue or simply toast your marshmallows on the open fire you will not be disappointed, a perfect way to see Cornwall. All there is left to say is 'go for it', you'll love it...
