Fall upon the South Fork

Our senior guide Eric Anderson landed this behemoth right below Palisades dam, streamers are working really well as the temperatures cool down and the big browns are on the bite.  Many other guides reported 24+ inch browns to hand this week.  Book a trip today to add this photo to your bucket list.  Warmer temperatures are predicted for the upcoming week, we are still seeing pmd’s and caddis with large hopper patterns along the bank coaxing many a willy cutthroat to the surface.  We hope everyone is enjoying the cooler temperatures and embracing our favorite season on the river.

Just two luxury holiday homes left at Natural Retreats Trewhiddle*


If you are looking for a luxury holiday home close to beautiful beaches and rugged cliffs, stunning rivers and idyllic countryside, pretty villages and charming harbours, then the breath-taking Roseland Peninsula in south Cornwall should be your first port of call. What’s more, the climate on the peninsula is almost Mediterranean with very mild winters and lovely warm summers. With all this in mind, it’s little wonder that holiday homes in the region usually fetch over £500,000.  So you’ll be pleasantly surprised to hear that the properties at Natural Retreats Trewhiddle are available from as little as £235,000 for a three bedroom house.

We’ve recently brought to the market a strictly limited number of luxury residences at Trewhiddle, nestled in a valley of 16 acres of farmland near the lovely beach at Pentewan Sands. There are now just two homes remaining*, each are generously sized, fully furnished, built to the highest specification and designed in a contemporary New England style with lovely views and secure outside parking. Two of the properties feature 4 bedrooms and private balconies and one has 3 bedrooms. Owners are able to enjoy a fantastic children’s play area and woodland walks on their doorstep, as well as a cycling path leading directly to Pentewan Sands. With prices starting from £235,000 for a 3 bedroom residence, Natural Retreats are proud to be offering some of the most luxurious property for sale in Cornwall at some of the most affordable prices.

In Trewhiddle, you are never more than 16 miles from the sea and with over 300 pretty beaches to choose from on the Roseland Peninsula, they remain relatively uncrowded even in the summer months.

Being surrounded by the sea on three sides, the Roseland Peninsula is a honey pot for the marine and water sports enthusiast. The area attracts countless sailors and surfers of all ages throughout the year. Falmouth, a global maritime centre, is just a short trip away on the pedestrian ferry from St Mawes.

Those able to drag themselves away from the lovely beaches and clear, blue seas will be rewarded with a huge abundance of attractions within easy reach. Just a short drive from Trewhiddle is Mevagissey, a gorgeously quaint fishing village, just 10 minutes away and ideal for a quiet afternoon stroll browsing for souvenirs with a Cornish ice cream in hand. Fishing and boat tours depart from the harbour.

The celebrated Eden Project is just 5 miles from Trewhiddle and is an unforgettable day out for the whole family. Trek through steamy jungles and experience the largest indoor rainforest from 30 metres above the forest floor. Explore fun trails and aerial walkways through one of the largest greenhouses in the world. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is another atmospheric site that offers a fun filled day out for families.

Castles, model railways, beaches, harbour towns, zoos, maritime centres, museums, gardens and theme parks – to name just a few – there really is something for everyone on Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula. Thankfully, owners of a Natural Retreats Trewhiddle holiday home also benefit from an unrivalled Concierge Service, a team of travel and lifestyle professionals who can take care of everything for a relaxing family holiday from restaurant bookings, guided tours, and private chefs to grocery shopping all year round.

Natural Retreats Trewhiddle is an idyllic location to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, breathe in the fresh sea air and appreciate the wonder of nature. Rugged coastal scenery, beautiful beaches, picturesque harbours and diverse wildlife are just a few reasons why the Roseland Peninsula is a much-loved holiday destination that people love returning to year after year. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to own your very own slice of the gorgeous English Riviera.
