I am originally from south east Cornwall where our cottages are situated. Now based in Berlin, Germany since 1995, but miss Cornwall's beautiful rolling green hills, cliffs, beaches, warm climate, humour, friendliness, great seafood, friends and family. Can't be there all the time due to work commitments so, with the help of my brother Derek and our great local team in Cornwall, we have been letting let Hill House's two cottages Trengrove (sleeps 6) and Trevenna (sleeps 2), since 2012, and our third cottage The Boathouse in the Heart of Looe (sleeps 2) since 2014.
We are constantly making improvements and upgrading. We have installed a new central heating and hot water system throughout both Trengrove and Trevenna, as well as multi-fuel stoves (for logs and coal) in both cottages, creating a cosy cottage atmosphere, especially for winter evenings by the fire!
Trengrove has been completely redecorated including a new ensuite in one of the double bedrooms, a remodelled modern family bathroom downstairs, new furniture and kitchen appliances, and HDTVs with DVD/radio in all the bedrooms. We have also had locally hand made, iroko wood, double glazed, sash windows and a matching front door installed.
Trevenna has had a full renovation during 2015; bespoke fitted kitchen, with all new appliances, remodelled bedroom with locally handmade furniture and king size bed, a contemporary ensuite bathroom, complete new lighting, HD TVs with DVD/radio in the sitting room and bedroom, new flooring throughout the whole cottage, as well as power points with USB chargers!
The Boathouse was completely redecorated in 2015 too, including the addition of a new sofa with matching footstool and cushions, extra shelving in the kitchen and bathroom, new coffee table and rug, and in response to our guests' requests a microwave oven.
We love our cottages; Trengrove's and Trevenna's peaceful seclusion in the hamlet, the gardens, and idyllic location. And the contrast of The Boathouse being in the bustling heart of ancient Looe with the beach, pier, harbour, fishing quay, restaurants, pubs and amenities a minute's stroll from the front door.
When we can't be there we're delighted to know our guests are enjoying the cottages. It's a lot of fun being a host, I really enjoy the contact with all our guests, answering their questions, passing on local tips and chatting. Everyone has been great, we've had visitors from all over the world, and I never imagined hosting could be so enjoyable. And they have given us lots of useful feedback and fantastically positive reviews; Thank you all!
We hope you, your friends, partners and families also come to love Hill House - Trengrove and Trevenna, as well as The Boathouse as much as we do.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
