Various additions have been added over the centuries to create a beautiful family home in an idyllic setting full of period character and charm. There is a strong gothic influence in the design of many of the windows which make it exceptionally attractive. The house retains many period features including early doors and door furniture, fireplaces, ironmongery, shuttered windows, cornices, bread oven, well, priest hole, stone inset royal crest, etc. The attached stone barn has been converted and has full residential planning giving the option of multi-generation accommodation or rental property income.

The house stands alone within its own grounds. There is a carport and garage with storage for garden equipment on the recently constructed rear driveway along with plenty of parking. The gardens are landscaped and laid to create a room effect as you meander around the various pathways arriving at various features e.g. Japanese garden, BBQ area, rose garden, sun terrace, courtyards, etc. there is a productive vegetable garden and polytunnel together with an orchard and a range of soft fruit bushes producing plums, apples, pears, cherries, raspberries, gooseberries, redcurrants, strawberries etc.

There are wonderful far-reaching views across rolling countryside with glimpses of the sea one mile to the South; Tredis is truly a magical location. 

VENDORS COMMENTS When we first entered Tredis little did we know that our two and a half year search for our perfect home had come to an end. We were immediately drawn in by the stunning scenery and peaceful location.

Tredis House is a beautiful unique character property that offers everything you expect from a country home and more. It has everything you need for modern living while retaining its character and charm. It has spacious reception rooms, ideal for entertaining or when family and friends come to stay. We have enjoyed many a wonderful Christmas with everyone around the dining table for turkey n christmas pudding and afterwards games in the Long room in front of the open fire. Day to day, when our numbers are fewer, we eat in our breakfast diner overlooking the garden and relax in our cosy snug which has a log burner, perfect for colder evenings! The bedrooms all have wonderful views of the garden or across the valley and all promise a peaceful nights sleep waking to nothing but birdsong.

Outside the gardens have been laid out so as to make individual areas. The formal patio, enjoying the open views to the villages of Crafthole and Sheviock in the distance, the Japanese garden, tranquil and secluded. The field where the sheep lazily graze or the walled rose garden, somewhere to sit and take in the heady air. Our herb and kitchen garden is where the hens are to be found happy and content supplying us with lovely fresh eggs daily. The small orchard by the wildlife pool yields enough fruit for our yearly supply of jams, chutney and fruit pies.

As well as being a wonderful friendly place to live Tredis is also ideally located to enjoy many leisure activities including: country and coastal walking, golfing, fishing, water activities and much more. Shopping too is no problem with Waitrose and other major supermarkets nearby, all offer home delivery service too. Foodies need not worry either as we have an abundance of fabulous quality restaurants in beautiful locations all in easy reach.

We truly feel privileged to have had the opportunity to spend some of our lives in the gem that is Tredis and wish the next guardians of Tredis House the peace and contentment we have enjoyed.

HISTORY The parish of Sheviock has a long and interesting history, the manor passing through the ownership of many famous West Country families including the Donnays, Courtenays, Mildmays, Carews and Poles. The library is thought to have been added in the early 19th Century when it was used as a toll house and there was a gateway across the road.

In Henry the VIII's reign in 1541, "Tredice" was included in the King's dowry to Catherine Howard. During George II's reign in 1748, "Tredice" was divided into two parts, and passed to the Reverend Pole in 1820. He restored and improved Tredis and in 1838 it is referred to as an "ancient seat reduced to a farmhouse". It remained in the Pole family until 1899, and then passed to the Bersey family.

There has been a settlement at Tredis since the Bronze Age. The area is rich in history due to its location drawing threats from invasion, occupation, religion, and political belief over the centuries. The parish of Sheviock and manor of Tredis has passed through the ownership of many famous West Country families such as Dawney, Courtneay, Carews and Poles, with historical notes dating back to 1290.

In 1348, upon the death of Sir John Dawney, he left Tredis to his wife Sibilla. It was then passed to Ricarda (daughter) who in turn passed it to her son Thomas Fychet (Grandson of Sabilla). On the attainder of the Marquis of Exeter in 1538 Tredis was forfeited to the crown. It is said to have been given to Anne of Cleeves by Henry VIII as part of his divorce settlement in 1540, after which it was included in the Kings dowry to Katherine Howard (ref. to letters and papers of Henry VIII) in 1541. In 1558 Tredis and Sheviock was sold to Thomas Carew. A list of free tenants dated 1578 states "Tredis is a manor and hath itself both demesne and service". Tredis was divided into lower Tredis to the East (Tredis as it is today), and Higher Tredis to the West. Tredis was purchased by the Peters family in the early 1600's and was the family home until approximately 1792 when the Reverend Edward Pole (rector of Sheviock 1782-1796) purchased Tredis from the Peters family.

A stretch of the Liskeard turnpike road (created in 1760) ran from Crafthole to Polbathic via Tredis, where a turnpike gate was located. Reverend Edward Pole incorporated a toll house into Tredis house which is now the office/library. Reverend Pole was the younger brother of Rt. Hon. Reginald Pole Carew of Anthony, he died in 1837 and his son Reginald was rector of Sheviock from 1825-1839. In 1831, he received permission from the Bishop of Exeter, on account of illness, not to live in the rectory in Sheviock but to be allowed to live in the house of his father, a mile distance from the church in view of the spire. Tredis house was the home of the Pole family from the late 1700's to 1899 when it passed to the Bersey family. The obelisk in the grounds of Tredis barn was erected by the Pole family in conjunction with the Primrose league.

AREA DESCRIPTION The hamlet of Tredis is just 1 mile from the village of Polbathic, and the head of the tidal stretch of the St Germans Estuary on the Rame Peninsula. The house faces almost due south in an area of outstanding natural beauty with splendid views towards Crafthole. This area is remarkably unspoilt but at the same time, well placed for easy access to road, rail and air services.

DIRECTIONS From the M5 motorway take the A38 Devon Expressway past Plymouth, across the Tamar Bridge following the signs to Liskeard. Proceed through the Saltash tunnel and on through the villages of Landrake and Tideford to the roundabout at Trerulefoot. Turn left here onto the A374 and proceed for about 2.1 miles to the village of Polbathic. Continue through the village and do not turn right at the signpost for Tredis but fork right up a steep hill, just as you leave the village, signposted 'Old Road'. Follow this road through the woodland for about 0.9 miles and then turn sharp right signed to Tredis, and Tredis House is the first house on the right hand side.
