“Built as a cliff-top home with spectacular sea views, Trevalsa Court has been refurbished with a modern twist that accentuates its original 1930s charm. Stone mullions, Gothic fireplaces and oak panelling are complemented by colourful bursts of Designers's Guild wallpapers, while in the pretty dining room you'll find fresh seafood on the menu and an impressive Cornish cheeseboard. A great base for visiting the Roseland Peninsula and local sights, with the coastal path literally at the bottom of the garden. A private cove, far below, is a steep climb down from there.”
