A lovely country house of historic and cultural significance with south facing gardens originally built for the Fox family immediately adjacent to Glendurgan Gardens.


Trenadlyn is a beautifully appointed house in a unique position surrounded by National Trust land and located adjacent to Glendurgan Gardens and very close to Trebah Gardens, two of the finest and most celebrated semi tropical gardens in Cornwall, above the Helford River in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Durgan Beach and the South West coastal path are only a short walk away. The Helford River is a large estuary renowned for its scenic beauty and marine ecology with hidden creeks, sheltered valleys and ancient oak forests. Historically the waterways were renowned as a haven for pirates which has inspired many writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and her Frenchman's Creek novel. There are deep-water moorings available in the river and a sailing club on the south bank, along with the famous Shipwrights pub with a pedestrian ferry between it and the highly regarded Ferryboat Inn on the north side. Water sports such as sailing, kayaking and paddle-boarding are available on the river, and for the golf enthusiast there is a nine hole golf course at the nearby Budock Vean Hotel.

The colourful harbour town of Falmouth, only five miles away, has an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants; amenities include primary and secondary schools, Falmouth & Exeter Universities, the National Maritime Museum, Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and several marinas. The cathedral city of Truro, about 14 miles away, offers the widest range of shopping, schooling and commercial facilities in Cornwall. From Truro there is a mainline rail link to London Paddington, while Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides several return flights to London Gatwick/Heathrow every day, along with other domestic and international destinations


Trenadlyn was built for the Fox family, the renowned aficionados of exotic horticulture and botanical gardens in Cornwall, on the Glendurgan estate. It is a charming family house built in the 1930s and has been upgraded by the current owners with a fabulous kitchen, modern bathrooms and triple glazing, whilst keeping the lovely art deco features in the detail of the skirtings and doors. All reception rooms and most of the bedrooms look out over the lovely gardens and in winter there are distant views of the Helford River and Falmouth Bay . The layout of the house allows you to enjoy the sun and gardens at all times with two conservatories for the morning, afternoon and evening sun.

As soon as you enter the property there is a sense of space: A generous entrance hall with a study to the left and a rather wonderful walk-in coat cupboard, perfect for all the family's muddy boots and coats. Then onto the large sitting room with wood burner and access to a conservatory, and doors to the terrace and gardens beyond. From the sitting room there is access to the ground floor guest suite of large double bedroom with double doors to gardens, en suite shower room and a well-designed modern kitchen. At the other end of the hall is a second cosy sitting room with wood burner and doors to the garden before you reach the large kitchen/dining room. From the kitchen/dining room there is access to the larger conservatory, with its fantastic old slate floor, (which gets all the morning sun) with doors to the gardens. The kitchen has been well designed by a local company with a large central island and granite work tops throughout. There is a three-oven electric Aga along with integrated Bosch double oven, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher and fridge at one end with a dining area at the other with double doors to the outside. To the rear of the kitchen is a cloakroom, utility room with door to a pantry/cold store and boot room and door to outside. Upstairs there is a spacious landing leading to the master suite with large ensuite bath and shower room at one end and two further double bedrooms, one of which is ensuite and a separate family bathroom.
