Trerose Manor, once the property of the infamous Killigrew seafarers, has been the home of Tessa Phipps and her family for over 35 years. Today it offers three guest rooms for those wishing to stay somewhere special in one of Britain’s most beautiful areas.

Trerose Manor Bed and BreakfastGrade-II listed, Trerose is an ideal place to stay for anyone seeking to explore this peaceful part of Cornwall. Not only are there excellent walking routes and spectacular coastal views on the doorstep, but the village of Mawnan Smith, near Falmouth, is also home to some of the country’s most celebrated gardens. These include Glendurgan and Trebah, both offering a wealth of rare and tender plants in stunning settings above the Helford River.

For horticultural enthusiasts, the magnificent gardens at Trelissick, Bonython and Heligan, and the Chelsea award-winning nurseries of Burncoose and Trevena Cross are easily reachable by car.

Whilst Trerose Bed and Breakfast is pleasantly ‘off the beat
en track’ and surrounded by glorious countryside, many of Cornwall’s finest award-winning restaurants are only a short driving distance away.
Whatever the reason for your visit, whether it be a base to discover the best that Cornwall has to offer or simply to relax and unwind, we will endeavour to do all that we can to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible, so that you return home feeling refreshed and restored.
Whilst we do not normally offer an evening meal, should you wish to book all three rooms and invite your friends to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, we should be delighted to prepare a celebratory dinner in our candlelit library.


We also enjoy welcoming overseas visitors; German, French and Italian are all spoken.


“The nicest B&B we’ve ever stayed in”
“Wonderful on all levels”
“What a lovely, lovely place!”
