Alan Rogers Review
Not so much camping as living in the gardens of a beautiful 350-year-old house. Trewan Hall’s 36 acres have been slowly and carefully developed over 50 years by its owners and visitors cannot fail to be impressed by the idyllic setting. The modern facilities are housed mainly within the hall’s former outbuildings, and the colourful, well maintained floral gardens are dispersed between the camping areas. The grassy, open plan pitches are set out in level fields with a minimum of six metres between each pitch, most of which are equipped with 10A electricity. Although the site never appears overcrowded, campers seeking an especially tranquil holiday might consider a visit in spring when the rhododendrons are in bloom, or in late summer.
Hidden behind the beautiful stonework of the house and its outbuildings are all that is needed for a comfortable holiday. The former circular mill, where animals once turned the millstone, now houses an information room and play area. Where repair work or new enclosures have been required, the work has been carried out in keeping with its surroundings. This is a site that will appeal to those seeking a rest from the hectic pace of daily life and where they can enjoy the beauty of the past combined with the comfort of the present.
Site is 7 Miles south west of Wadebridge. Leave A30 at Indian Queens junction and follow A39 towards Wadebridge. After 3 miles (shortly after bypassing St Column Major) turn left, signposted Talskiddy. Site entrance is 300 yds. on left.
