Our expert Concierge Team all have first hand knowledge of our Retreats. Joe Benson visited Natural Retreats Trewhiddle and here are his top five recommendations.

  1. The Pentewan Trail from Natural Retreats Trewhiddle: After a long drive to the site this is a nice one hour, three mile walk suitable for all ages. The trail runs through and alongside woodland and offers the chance to take in many lovely views.
  2. The Eden Project: Located just a few miles from Natural Retreats Trewhiddle, it is a must see for any trip to Cornwall. This world famous eco-attraction is a great day out and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Walking through the bio domes is like going to a different country!
  3. Lost Gardens of Heligan: A very unusual atmospheric site that offers a fun filled day out, brilliant for families. I would recommend getting a guide to really get the most out of the experience; I loved the free compass on entry! Also home to Lobbs farm shop, a great place to stock up on fresh local produce.
  4. Mevagissey: For a lazy afternoon head to the picturesque harbour town of Mevagissey which is reachable within a 10 minute drive from Natural Retreats Trewhiddle. Lovely fishing and boat tours are available. Home to the Fountain Inn, a traditional pub serving home-made food, and Kelly’s Cornish Ice Cream, the Mint Choc Chip is the best!
  5. Pentewan Sands: A fabulous beach within 10-15 minutes’ drive of your residence, this stretch of the Cornish Riviera is truly breath-taking! This is the closest beach to Natural Retreats Trewhiddle. Easily reached in about seven minutes by car this family-friendly beach is safe for bathing and has its own car park. Great if you’ve brought pets along, too.
