Old Lodge is the original lodge at the entrance to the old drive to Trelissick House. It was built in around 1825 in a delightful neo-Greek style, with its miniature grand columns reflecting the giant ones on the front of the main house, both were the work of the same architect. Its private, secluded garden and sheltered position in a wooded glade make this a perfect place to relax in, with miles of woodland walks available from the doorstep and the creeks and shores of the River Fal all within easy exploring distance.
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 New 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.
