Truro, Cornwall

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

New Lodge was built around 1860, when a new entrance was created to give a grander approach to Trelissick House. With its rounded chimneys and latticed windows, this is a fascinating example of the Victorian picturesque style of architecture. The lodge is surrounded by its own garden and has beautiful views over woods and open countryside.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more.

    Well maintained cottage

    Very well-maintained, equipped and furnished cottage. The welcoming note, flowers and tea and coffee were a splendid touch. We felt settled and comfortable in the cottage within minutes of arriving. The log fire was a delightful feature. We know the area very well and have always admired New Lodge from the outside. The gardens and the woodland walk are particular favourites of ours. Although the break was in the middle of the winter, we had a delightful relaxing time.

    Just perfect

    What a stunning cottage - full of character and presented immaculately. Set on the edge of the Trellisick Estate, I was free to roam the nearby fields and head down to the beach to watch the boats mooring up for the evening. The cottage is spacious and well thought out - the fire made for cosy evenings and inspired me to put my feet up and enjoy a glass of wine after a long walk. Just perfect.

    Lovely walks

    Great to be so close to Trelissick gardens, a firm favourite of ours, with lovely walks straight from the door. Loved the views of woodland and bluebells from the cottage.

    Delightful cottage

    The cottage was delightful and felt comfortable. the staff had obviously cared for this house and it showed. It was just like coming home. We have booked again at Christmas as it was so lovely. The caretaker had left a personal card, too and we felt very special. Thank you

    A fantastic cottage

    A fantastic cottage - beautifully kept and clean. In an ideal position to get to both north and south coasts and the beautiful city of Truro is only 10 minutes drive away. Would definitely recommend!

  • Patti and Robert
    Trelissick garden is lovely beyond words

    The location is easy to get to and close to walks to the beautiful River Fal. We especially enjoyed taking the (new!) King Harry Ferry to the Roseland Peninsula, where the Roseland Inn has delicious food and great service in a lovely location. Trelissick garden is lovely beyond words.

  • Newcombe family - again!
    We spent another glorious week here

    We spent another glorious week here - our 2nd visit. It really is the most perfect cottage and would recommend it to anyone
