If you are new to the area, the information in this page will provide details about
the surrounding area.
First of all, a little more about your surroundings. Trewerry Mill (which is next
door to the cottages) dates to around 1639 and was partially rebuilt in 1820. The
mill was one of several that served Trerice Manor (now owned by the National Trust
and just five minutes walk up the road), and was in use until the 1950s. Across
the road, by the stream, stands an old railway bridge. Trains used to run from Newquay
to Chacewater, and would stop just outside the mill at Trewerry Halt. There is a
woodland walk along the old track-bed which is open to guests, leading to a pond
area at the northern-most tip of the property.
The beaches of North Cornwall are of breathtaking beauty and within easy reach, enjoyable
to explore whatever the season, perhaps with a picnic tucked up in rucksack.
Head for Crantock, Holywell or Perranporth beaches for wonderful sandy open bays,
or if you prefer to get away from it all, try Polly Joke. It’s a bit of a hike from
the car park, but worth it for the walk and the seclusion. Fistral Beach in Newquay
is the place to go for surfing action, or just to watch the hot shot surfers. Nothing’s
better than a relaxing sundowner at the Windswept café, at the south end of Fistral
beach on a sunny day, watching the surf go by. And of course there is Watergate Bay,
used as the filming location for Echo Beach and where you can find Jamie Oliver’s
‘fifteen’ restaurant. If you have time, the seals in Newquay harbour are always on
the lookout for an audience (or for a spare fish!).
There are many things to see and do in Cornwall. Why not go for a walk around Trevose
Head, and call in at Padstow on the way back? Or take a turn around Pentire Headland,
with views over the stunningly beautiful Gannel Estuary (you can always call in at
the Lewinick Lodge for a refresher, with magnificent views to Fistral beach). The
Eden Project has become as famous for its evening events as for its conservation
biomes, or head for the more mature landscapes at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The
Reef Centre in Newquay has some surprisingly exotic sea life, and closer to home
are Trerice Manor, the former seat of the Arundell family, as well as the Lappa Valley
Railway, a must for younger guests. For thrill-seekers, check out the Extreme Academy
at Watergate Bay, or the Adventure Centre at Lusty Glaze for surfing, coasteering,
rock climbing and much more. There are two golf clubs nearby, a 12 hole locally at
St Newlyn East and Newquay Golf Club, one of Cornwall’s finest seaside links.
The number of restaurants in Cornwall has greatly expanded in recent years. Booking
is advisable, especially on Friday or Saturday nights. In Newquay, try Silks at the
Atlantic Hotel, for a treat (oysters and steaks), the Harbour restaurant has wonderful
views, and is good for fish. If you fancy a curry, the Maharajah is hard to beat.
Locally, there is the Pheasant Inn in St Newlyn East, about a mile away, but don’t
forget your torch if walking there at night! Or try the Smugglers’ Den, a sixteenth
century country inn near Cubert, about 10 minutes drive, away. For fine dining locally,
why not try Viners Bar and Restaurant in Summercourt, or for a nearby gastropub head
for the Plume of Feathers in Mitchell, both are a short drive from Trewerry cottages.
