An historic home with a fascinating multi-generational history.

What could be more alluring than stealing away to your very own luxury countryside retreat for a few glorious days (or weeks) of relaxation? Our ultimate rural escape’s checklist would include features like ‘gorgeous location’, ‘sumptuously styled interior’ and ‘fabulous outdoor space’, which is exactly what this beautifully restored period farmhouse in the heart of Cornwall delivers on in spades!

At Great Trethawle days can be slow-paced and dreamy, hanging out by the enormous pool or picnicking in the garden; dressing up for dinner parties and winding down for poolside BBQ’s; or they can be activity packed and adventurous with a 2km farm walk to enjoy right on the doorstep.

Inside there are spaces to converge in and places retreat to, with fashionable sitting rooms designed for enjoying afternoon cups of tea or evening G&T’s, and beautiful bedrooms tempting morning naps and nights of deeply comfortable sleep. There’s a fabulous sauna for relaxation and rejuvenation, and a library room of holiday reads to discover.

Bold prints and soft fabrics highlight each room, with features like the large farmhouse table in the dining room and a fireplace in the living room, adding conviviality and character to the home. Casual breakfasts and slap-up dinners are whipped up with ease in the wonderful kitchen complete with vast work surfaces and umpteen ovens, with a central island making the perfect perch for discussing the day’s plans over a coffee.

Bedrooms are lavish and luxurious with superior mattresses and beautiful décor; bathrooms are spacious and contemporary with roomy tubs in some and rain head showers with his and hers basins in others. Mood lighting and underfloor heating, original flagstone flooring, stripped stone walls and exposed beams, all weaving together to create a home that is as lovely to look at as it is comfortable to be in.

Outside, undulating gardens have secret nooks and arbor walkways to discover, with shaded areas that are ideal for catching up on a good book and sun-soaked ones being perfect for dozing off in. There’s a large hot tub tucked away in a private corner where a decadent soak can be enjoyed day (or night), while the more energetic of guests can don their tennis whites and head down to the court for an informal match or two.

Perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all of Cornwall’s best bits, Great Trethawle lies close to Bodmin Moor and is within an hour of some of the area’s must-visit attractions including the charming town of Looe (just 6 miles away), The Camel Trail, Lanydroc House and The Eden Project. Closer to home, the market town of Liskeard makes for a lovely place to stroll through; taking time to soak up its Victorian and Edwardian architecture, and then stopping off for a coffee or a bite to eat in one of its pubs or restaurants.

*This house is not only easy on the eye but is also kind to the environment and is powered by a combination of wind turbine energy and solar panels. The pool is filled with Spring water and is heated by a ground source air pump.
