Trerose Manor wing from the terrace

The house is set amid a mature Cornish garden with plenty to explore and enjoy, and sunny corners in which to relax, read, chat, sketch, or write. As such, Trerose Manor B&B is an ideal place for anyone seeking a little peace & quiet or an artistic retreat.

Above the lawn, running the length of the house, there is a paved terrace with a profusion of colourful flowerbeds and attractive pots. This is an ideal spot for breakfast on sunny mornings and a perfect location for tea and a chat in the afternoon.

flowersDue to the unique geographical location of Trerose it is possible to cultivate a wide range of tender plants and shrubs that wouldn’t normally be found elsewhere in the UK. Frosts in this part of Cornwall are rare as the parish of Mawnan is bounded on two sides by the sea – the Helford River to the south and the open waters of the English Channel to the east.

Indeed, Mawnan is sometimes referred to as “the gardens parish of Cornwall”, being home to both Trebah and Glendurgan as well as several privately owned estates which are occasionally open to the public.
