World class coastal setting with outstanding views of St Michael's Mount and towards the Atlantic.


Trenow Cove House is set in an elevated position with panoramic Westerly views of St Michael's Mount, towards Marazion, out to Mounts Bay and the Atlantic beyond. Surrounded by National Trust land and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Trenow Cove House is a hidden treasure.

The property is located between the villages of Perranuthnoe and Marazion, with the scenic South West coastal foot path
and other public footpaths providing convenient access to both from the house. Perranuthnoe is a picturesque village with a fine sandy beach and a church and is centred on a 12th Century inn. Canoeing and paddle boarding are becoming increasingly popular around this coastline with seals often being spotted as well as occasional sightings of dolphins and basking sharks. The Grebe, a rocky island off the beach below Trenow Cove House, is a local hotspot for seal watching.

To the east, the village of Marazion is known for its medieval church and for the world famous castle at St Michael's Mount. Along with two sandy beaches, both popular spots for kite surfing, the village has a small range of shops, art galleries and restaurants, including the award winning Goldolphin Arms and Ben's Kitchen.

This stretch of coastline attracts some of Cornwall's finest artists with its dramatic and picturesque scenery including Prussia Cove, Praa Sands and Loe Bar.

The market town of Penzance is approximately five miles away, and the town is host to several well-regarded restaurants and art galleries, and offers state primary and secondary schools, as well as a campus for the Ofsted rated 'outstanding' Truro & Penwith College. Penzance station provides direct rail links to Truro and to London Paddington (including a night sleeper service).

The nearby village of Newlyn is one of the busiest fish and shellfish landing harbours in Britain and the Filmhouse in the village has proved a huge success with the local community and beyond.

Approximately seven miles to the East is Porthleven which has emerged as a culinary hotspot, with several highly-regarded local restaurants taking advantage of the outstanding local produce and drawing in food-lovers from far and wide.

Between Penzance and Lands End the Minack Theatre perches on the cliffs high above Porthcurno.

The garden is gently sloping and is mainly laid to lawn, with winding grassed walks, gravelled paths and terraces. These are shaped and sheltered by evergreen hedges, flowering shrubs such as California Poppy and Himalayan Honeysuckle and trees such as Olives, and large Date and other Palms.
