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.

Explore the Fal Estuary and beyond without impacting on the delicate natural environment of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Park up the car and do all your travelling by river. Use the hop-on hop-off ferries to visit Falmouth, Truro and all points between.

We also have other cottages on the Trelissick estate, including the nearby Old Lodge. A little further away at the centre of the Trelissick estate are The Water Tower, Engine House and Ferris's Cottage. On the King Harry ferry quayside is Quay Cottage.

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. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you’ll be set for life!

    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.
