Typical regency style Cornish country house, with a fascinating garden
Tregoose B&B is an elegant and comfortable Wolsey Lodge, a stately B&B that stands in the rolling countryside of the Roseland Peninsula near Truro. Built in 1839 this late Regency offers bed and breakfast guests, with its wealth of beautiful antiques, a wonderful retreat in picturesque surroundings. Approach through the outstanding gardens, there is ample parking and more importantly a warm welcome.
After being warmly greeted by Alison and friendly border terrier Tamar and shown to your rooms, enjoy tea with home-baked treats in the elegant sitting room. The three guest rooms, all with their own bathrooms are inviting and prettily decorated, with superb views over the beautiful two-acre garden. Alison has lovingly restored and enlarged the garden over the last twenty years. It contains many rare and interesting plants, a sunken, herbaceous walled garden, a potager and a wild flower meadow.
The food at Tregoose is varied, imaginative and makes the most of the local organic produce, including homemade preserves, Tregoose eggs as well as fruit and vegetables are grown on site. A lovely dinner experience is also available, just make sure to let your hosts know at the time of booking.
Tregoose B&B suggests
Don’t miss the gardens at Tregoose. True, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are within five miles, but five paces from your door and you’re already in one of the most enchanting sub-tropical garden you are ever likely to see, lovingly tended and absolutely private. From November to March you’ll see 70 snowdrop varieties, along with dwarf daffodils and erythroniums. Some Camelias flower before Christmas, and notable plants at Tregoose include a 40-foot Rhododendron ‘Cornish Red’. Tregoose also has a nursery so if any particular plants take your fancy you can take them – or their relatives – home.
