Lovely place. Marco who runs the place is very nice, helpful and entertaining.
Anything you need just ask him. Delicious continental breakfast included.
If you want to eat check if the restaurant is open as not open every day.
Very calm and quiet place with breathtaking view. Also Camel Trails within 5 min walk.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing front of the house

The hotel is lovely, if unusual - which is part of its charm. Marco, the owner is rather a Marmite character - he was initially pleasant, if rather brusque, but when we mentioned that the wi-fi did not work in our room, he told us that our laptops were at fault (I had an HP with microsoft and my husband had an Apple Mac). The fact that he was watching football sitting about 10 ft away from the router obviously didn't register, nor did the fact that other people complained that they couldn't get on the internet either. He did fix the problem but it happened again.

I was also a little miffed, when having driven for nearly 5 hours, we were hoping for a pizza or something from what was advertised as their trattoria, but we were told that they did not serve meals during weekdays. So we had to drive to a pub to have a meal. Fair enough, but the very next evening (which was also a weekday), we saw two (American) guests being served with home-made pizza. That doesn't look too good, and didn't endear the place to us..

The hotel itself was interesting and we had a lovely room, with a comfortable bed, lovely ensuite bathroom and beautifully fresh sheets. But Marco needs to stop deflecting the blame for anything and everything onto something other than himself. We laughed at the time, but it was a bit like being at Fawlty Towers. Which is a shame, because the house itself had loads of potential and is a really nice place.

The breakfast was not particularly inspiring, although the waitresses were friendly and nice to speak to.

We have re-visited the area since, but I'm afraid we won't be going back.

Last August we spent two weeks in UK, mainly in the South : Hampshire, Devon and Cornwall. We were an happy company of fourteen, seven kids and seven grown ups. And we had booked two nights at Tredethy House, near Bodmin, in Cornwall. You reach the place through country roads, tunnelled in the green : plain sail with a good GPS navigation device. To land, suddendly, to a remarkable Manor House, with acres of green around it, grand hall, grand stairs, very large rooms with any comfort you could ask for. And Marco, Italian, as we are, mastering the big company in the different rooms for a luxury stay; forthcoming and very helpful.
We keep a fond memory of our two days there .
Rating doesen't somewhat tell it all : it was a fairy tale. Try yourself.

Room Tip: Just ring Marco, he'll arrange it for you.

Why oh why does this property have such a high rating! The worst B&B experience I've ever had! Don't ask for a quiet room with a view you'll get punished! I feel this host has a vindictive side ! He either likes you or not! Don't stay in Room 2 as that will tell you everything you need to know!Such a shame as it's a lovely looking house but needs a caring host who understands the meaning of welcome! I could list my complaints but it will fall on uncaring deaf ears.So as my mother use to say 'Save your breath to cool your porridge'! Heed my words as I wouldn't like anyone else to have the same experience! Cornwall and most that live there are wonderful caring people!

tredethyhouse, Owner at Tredethy House, responded to this reviewResponded 4 October 2017

We are Italian living in Cornwall and we do think Cornwall is full of lovely people. This guest was from Cornwall as well and was greeted with usual kindness. It would be counter intuitive to think that we are in this business to make people holidays unpleasant. We do proud ourselves for being a very friendly family run business. The guest booked room 2 and was given room 2, which is clearly described as a backyard facing room, classic size, en suite. Very pleasant room. The guests decided to check out in the afternoon probably due to weather being very bad.

This country house is a real find, tucked away in the Cornish countryside, yet close to the sea and easy access roads.

Marco, the Italian owner has an eclectic array of Italian furniture and furnishings which makes Tredethy House rather grand without being overstated. It is so peaceful and spacious and the local pubs are great too.

Marco and all the staff at Tredethy were lovely, friendly and helpful, (molto simpatico).

We would love to return, and with our dog next time.
