The Experience

You’ll feel at home in this house, with its old flagstone floors, gnarled beams, deep window sills and light cascading through sash windows. Everyone can help with cooking – there’s a cupboard full of oils, spices and herbs – and you’ll find Cornish biscuits, Smugglers Brew tea and a bottle of organic Prosecco to get you started. Stock up at Louis farmshop – a short cycle ride, or drive to Tavistock for a farmers’ market most Saturdays as well as independent shops.

Loll about on lots of grass with mowed paths, wander up to Greenscombe Wood for a nature reserve and butterfly spotting. You’re right on the border of two counties (hear the river Tamar rushing along from the house) and you can walk down to the Horsebridge, built in 1437 by French Benedictine monks. On the Devon side you’ll find The Royal Inn for real ales and home cooked food.

Stargazing from the swing under the ancient oak tree while somebody starts a barbecue is magic.

Reviews

A beautiful stone farmhouse with a gorgeous view of the surrounding farmland. I had such a lovely stay here and loved waking up to the amazing views and countryside each morning. I felt so at home straight away. The house is in a great location (especially if you like secluded countryside with private gardens and fields all around you) it’s 30-45mins to get to Tintagel, Looe, Trebarwith Strand Beach all of which I loved! And Cotehele national trust is 15mins away and a great day out too! Thanks for a lovely stay in such a beautiful place. Will remember our holiday for ever :)

Kelly, London

Stunning setting with beautiful views. The house comfortably accommodated our family of five and we had a great time going to beaches both on the North and South coasts. The cottage itself is also very pretty and we had a lovely time playing & BBQ-ing in the garden.

Ashley, Wiltshire

Spacious, secluded and well equipped - this property had everything we had hoped for for a quiet week away.

Nick, London

Beautiful farmhouse, surrounded by great scenery, what’s not to like?! Gabrielle was very thoughtful with the instructions/directions and left us with some nice supplies for our stay.

Stefan, Hereford

Beautiful cottage in stunning scenery in the Tamar Valley AONB. The house accommodated 5 of us easily, with a great kitchen hob for family meals, a lovely dining area, and sitting room. The garden is huge with swings and hammocks that the children (and adults) really loved. The house is really well situated for beaches in the north and south coasts and is also near Dartmoor. There are also lovely walks along the Tamar to local pubs direct from the house. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family

Gavin, London

A comfortable and roomy house for a family holiday or a get-together with friends. The garden is big enough for games, woodland is near for den building, the river for paddling or swimming, and parents can relax knowing children are quite safe from traffic.

Nicola, Sawday's Inspector

My partner and I had such a lovely stay at this special place. We didn't know this area of Cornwall before we came and we loved how peaceful it is compared to other more touristy areas. Great base to explore the north and south coasts but actually you can happily spend a day lazing about the garden in one of the hammocks with a book in hand, looking out over the hills and valley - beautiful. Thank you for a great stay Gabrielle!

Hayley, Snowdonia

We had such a wonderful stay at Treovis. The house is lovely inside and the garden is huge! We had mixed weather but it didn't matter - on the sunny days we headed to the beach and did amazing walks on Dartmoor (nearby), then headed back for a BBQ and on the drizzly day the kids were very happy with the selection of films there and we all felt very cosy with the wood-burner on. Great kitchen for cooking in too. We had a lovely stay and will be back!

Location

The neighbourhood

This was mining country right up until the 20th-century and you can see the evidence while you walk or cycle through the landscape over fields, or on quiet roads and lanes. Keen cyclists will join Route 27 and can do coast to coast in a day. Calstock, a 15-minute drive, has an art gallery and cafés. Explore the Tudor gardens at Cotehele (NT) or head to beaches (Freathy is lovely) or to Dartmoor.

Local points of interest from Gabie Scott

  • This is a wonderful spot for hikers. You can set off for beautiful countryside walks straight from the door. Numerous footpaths will lead through ancient woodland or right along the river's edge.
  • Treovis is perfectly situated to explore Dartmoor for incredible wild swimming spots, rambling over tors and exploring its mystical and magical history.
  • Walk to Devon from the house! A beautiful 20 minute walk from the house takes you over the border into Devon to a lovely 15th century pub, The Royal Inn for decent pub grub and local ales.
  • The Tamar Trails Activity Centre is a 10 minute drive away for bike hire, canoeing, tree-surfing and zip-wires, archery and miles of beautiful walking and biking trails. There's a cafe here too selling good coffee and we recommend their lemon drizzle cake!
  • The family-run Louis Tearooms is just a 5-minute drive or cycle ride, and here you will find homemade breakfasts, lunches and cream teas in the café. There is also a farm shop, which stocks lots of lovely local produce.
  • Get to the coast in about 40 mins. Sharrow beach is one of our favourites. Sharrow is a small, sandy beach with rocky outcrops near Tregonhawke. There is a car park and easy access via the cliff path, with flower-lined steps down to this beautiful cove.

Introducing

Gabie Scott

Gabie has loved Cornwall for years and spends as much time down here as she can. She adores the coast and recently walked the entire length of the South West Coast Path with her three boys who have grown up walking in this area. They are at their happiest when out in the wild, enjoying nature and want to share this with guests. She's working hard on the garden and wildflower meadows.
