*** Single room is £25.00 per night

Tea, Coffee and remote control colour T.V. are included.
None of our rooms are en-suite! We will not spoil the "old world feel" of the farmhouse by attempting to provide en-suite facilities. Guests can use the electric shower in the warm and cosy bathroom. Or alternatively, you can take a bath that is fed directly from the cooking range which has plenty of steaming hot water available around the clock.
The bathroom window overlooks the rear lawn and orchard. Most mornings, the antics of our resident menagerie of ducks, geese and chickens will keep you amused.
Breakfast time at Trewinney
When you wake in the morning, the aroma of freshly baked bread drifts through the farmhouse. Shortly afterwards, a suggestion of freshly made coffee is in the air. At this point you know it's time to go down for breakfast! Stephanie provides, what the majority of our guests would describe as, a truly hearty and traditional breakfast. We do believe in breakfasting like a king! A hearty breakfast sets you up for the day and gives you more time to enjoy your break! Vegetarians and vegans can be catered for. Please notify us if you have any particular dietry requirement.
