Jonathan and Trish warmly welcome you to Higher Tresithick Barn, a quality bed and breakfast located in the heart of Cornwall - near Truro and Falmouth, but in the countryside!
We have 8 acres of land with various animals, and you can enjoy beautiful views of the Fal Estuary from our 8 acre field. Walkers and cyclists can get straight onto the footpaths, woodland and bridleways just along the lane from our home. Trelissick Gardens and the King Harry ferry to the Roseland and St Mawes is just a short drive away.
The property is a converted barn in a fantastic countryside location just 3 miles from Truro and 2 miles from Loe Beach which has a great watersports facility such as windsurfing, kyacking, sailing and raft building! We have decided to just offer 1 bedroom, with a bathroom and dining/lounging area.
Where possible, we source breakfast ingredients locally and make the most of some fantastic Cornish produce - sausages and bacon from the village farm shop and free range eggs. We offer a hearty cooked breakfast and also lighter alternatives, including croissants, fresh fruit and various vegetarian options, all served at a time of your choosing.
We are just three miles from the cathedral city of Truro with great restaurants and shopping on offer. We are ideally situated for Mylor Yacht Harbour, Restronget Creek, Falmouth and it's lovely beaches, Eden, Heligan and the gardens of the South West.
We are ideally situated for exploring both South and North coasts. We are only 3 miles from Truro, 6 miles from Penryn and 8 miles from Falmouth and its beautful beaches. Perranporth is only about 9 miles from us and is a fantastic North Cornish Beach.
Local attractions include the world famous Eden Project, Heligan and the gardens of the South West
We are a social family of five. We will respect your need for privecy and peace and quiet.. (Sometimes a challenge with 4 ponys, 2 dogs and 3 cats... And let's not forget the 3 children). You will find us on trip advisor.
Your bedoom is twin aspect with views out to the main garden and fields. We have ironing facilities and a hairdryer in the room. We have WiFi, double pillow top bed, and we also have a sun terrace where you can relax. We have a pet- and smoke-free house inside, but you are welcome to smoke outside in the garden.
You can walk to the village shop, ricer and pub (pub is a good 30 min walk!) bus into truro and falnouth is 5 minutes away.
No pets allowed I'm afraid to say.
Treat us like you'd like to be treated and we'll all get on like a 'house on fire'
We are a busy family and do not run our home as a hotel. Which means we can only look after you properly up to 10.45am and from 5.30pm onwards. If you do want to come back during the day all you need to do is ask and if we are around you will be more than welcome.
As you all know behind every great man there is a great woman and all barring the greatness it's the same with our family. Trish keeps everything going Regardless. She's brilliant as are my three children, Claudia, Sophia and Luca.
The B&B is something we want to do not 'have' to do! We have made many new friends in fact one couple have bought a puppy from us and have stayed with us in Cornwall every year since we started!
We look forward to welcoming you to Cornwall with a cup of tea and homemade cake!
