Superb in every way. No bother from anyone, comfy accommodation. Carefree. Friendly owners. Best Cornish holiday for many years. Wouldn't hesitate to return at any time. Thank you Melanie and Russell.

Our second visit and this year we stayed in the Carthouse as our brood has expanded and we brought Grandparents too. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and the layout suited our needs perfectly. It is a nice quiet area but easy to access St Ives and surrounding areas. Great to have free parking for 2 cars and we used the bus service that runs just outside too. On a rainy day we had a lovely swim at the clean and modern leisure centre but also enjoyed many sunny days on the beaches. We love the area, restaurants and it is all ideal for families. Gorgeous sunsets most nights. Melanie and Russell are very helpful and are there as needed. Our son loved the goats, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats - he talked about them for ages after. Thank you and we'll look forward to visiting soon.

We all had a super time staying in the Palour for a week away in August 2015. The place was modern and spotless! It was lovely having a box of toys, DVDs & games in the cottage for the kids. The beds were so very comfortable! And how lovely that we didn't have to pay for wi-fi. The kids loved playing in the games room and play barn when it was a bit drizzly. Russell was very welcoming & just left us to it. The coastly walk was fantastic (but not buggy friendly). What made it easier for us was not having to park in St Ives (as it was quite busy) as there was a bus that ran every 30 mins right on your door step (£4 family ticket), only took 10 mins dropping you in the centre. Would definitely recommend and come back again.

Despite rave reviews from other holidaymakers, we found the accommodation damp and rather cramped. There were no instruction manuals for appliances and the children's 'play centre' was unfinished. The pets corner only had 2 chickens & 2 goats and the playbarn was also rather damp and gloomy. It would have been helpful to have had information on the adjoining campsite facilities (shop!

We have been returning every year (I think, with the exception of maybe one or 2 years) to stay at Trevalgan Farm cottage for the last 14 years. I think over the years we have stayed in each of the apartments but usually stay in the Parlour. I call it my little piece of heaven. It provides a peaceful base very close to picturesque bustling St Ives. Quite apart from the stunning scenery and beautiful surrounding beaches and hidden coves (try to locate the wee cove just past Morvah) the accommodation is superb. Everything is always spotlessly clean and super well equipped. Russell and Melanie, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. Both are very helpful and friendly. They are easy to contact without you feeling they're "on top" of you. On each visit we take the coastal walk from the farm to Zennor and lunch at the Tinner's Arms which is superb. The walk is a challenge but well worth it. Ask Russell or Melanie for rough directions and the trail is easy to pick up. A perfect, peaceful location with clean well equipped accommodation at competitive rates! What more could anyone want?

Your kind words are greatly appreciated. It is important to us that people enjoy their holidays at Trevalgan and we are genuinely delighted that you think we strike the right balance between being "helpful and friendly" without being "on top of you". That's exactly what we're aiming for!
