With classic proportions, high ceilings, seven bedrooms and a wealth of pantries, larders, stables, studies, cobbled courtyards and a walled garden, Trebyan House presents a wonderful opportunity to purchase and create a fabulous family home in an extremely convenient location in the heart of Cornwall.


Lanhydrock, situated between the open moorland of Bodmin to the north and the wooded valleys of the south, is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Cornwall. Most famous for the magnificent National Trust managed Lanhydrock House, rolling farmland and picturesque wooded valleys surround this lovely area.

Nearby Lostwithiel was the ancient capital of Cornwall over 700 years ago. It is an attractive town famed for its antiques and individual shops, delis, cafes and restaurants. There are pleasant riverside walks and the ruins of Restormel Castle overlook the river valley.

Fowey is renowned for its safe, deep water anchorage and sailing. Food lovers are well looked after with excellent restaurants lining the high street including The Old Quay House. Cornwall is synonymous with fabulous seafood with good fishmongers to be found in most south coast harbour villages.

The spectacular Cornish coasts to the north, south and west add to the diversity of the county, to the south the landscape is softer and the south facing coves and beaches are loved by sailors, while the north and west are far more wild, with spectacular cliffs and wonderful long sandy beaches pounded by Atlantic rollers. The nearby Lanhydrock estate is becoming a cycling hub, with connections to the Camel Trail as well as its own extensive cycling trails, and within a mile of the front gates of Trebyan House are trails leading down to the banks of the Fowey River and in to the rear of the gardens of Lanhydrock House.

Travelling to and from Lanhydrock is very straightfoward, with Fowey around 10 miles to the south and Wadebridge a similar distance to the north, and both the A30 and A38 just a few miles distant for easy travel east and west. Cornwall Airport near Newquay is 20 miles to the west and provides daily flights to Gatwick along with routes to many UK and European destinations.



Mentioned throughout the 18th century, Trebyan House has long had links with the Lanhydrock Estate, noted in one history book as 'latterly the pleasant villa residence of the Cole family' who are thought to be responsible for creating the fine formal drawing room with its double height ceiling. The 1940s saw it requisitioned by the army and there are still marks and notices, both official and unofficial, on pantry and stable doors from the army's time there.


Grade II listed period house with potential for refurbishment, reached by a private drive.

Both looking out on to the walled garden, the living room and dining room are well proportioned with high ceilings and large sash windows.

The formal drawing room is a fabulous entertaining space, with a
double height ceiling and doors to the garden.

South east facing kitchen with a larder, storerooms and pantry,
paved with slate flagstones and views of the drive through large sash windows.

The rear store rooms open on to a pretty cobblestoned courtyard.

The seven bedrooms, two en-suite, are arranged around the main landing, with the master bedroom enjoying the bay window overlooking the gardens. A passage links to the rear bedrooms which have a separate stairway to the rear of the house.

The courtyard to the rear is lovely, with cobblestones and surrounded by granite outbuildings.

Square Footage: 5,024 sq ft
Acreage: 4 Acres



From the A30, exit on to the A38 heading towards Bodmin and Liskeard. At the Turfdown Roundabout take the 3rd exit towards Lanyhydrock. At the next roundabout take the 1st exit on to B3268 and after 0.3 mile you will see the granite gates on your right to Trebyan House, opposite Prindyl Pottery.
