Building a green future for holidays
This historic, 1000-acre private estate on The Lizard peninsula has been transformed by restoring its environment and converting old or abandoned buildings to provide a real alternative to holiday inflation, based on green principles.
Trelowarren has won eleven awards including The Times 2008 “best place to stay” award. The accommodation has been built, equipped and supplied to the highest environmental standards in a listed landscape of outstanding natural beauty. Our objective is to become carbon-neutral and self-sufficient in food and fuel – creating a green paradise for people and a magnet for wildlife.
In this wooded paradise between the Goonhilly Downs and the Helford River, a mile from any road, a redundant Georgian barn has been transformed into four houses of unique character and quality. Two 18th-century cottages, standing within an Iron Age fort, have been restored to the same demanding standards.
These beautiful eco-friendly refurbished holiday houses, including two thatched cottages and new green-build houses have been furnished and equipped to exceptional standards to provide luxurious accommodation for wonderful family holidays. Choose from 2-bedroom up to 4-bedroom properties with the use of two heated outdoor swimming pools and an all-weather tennis court.
There are miles of woodland walks through the estate and down to the river, an award-winning restaurant, and craft centre. Numerous exquisite beaches are within easy reach and the famous surfing beaches on the north coast are within an easy drive. Helford Sailing Club operates courses for children in the summer months.
