I am originally from south east Cornwall where our cottages are situated. Now based in Berlin, Germany since 1995, love it 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 team in Cornwall, we let Hill House's two cottages Trengrove (sleeps 6) and Trevenna (sleeps 2), and our new cottage (since April 2014) The Boathouse in the Heart of Looe.
It's a long term project, gradually making improvements. In October 2013 we installed a new central heating and hot water system throughout both Trengrove and Trevenna, fitted a new bathroom in Trengrove, fitted new carpet and flooring in Trevenna and redecorated all the bedrooms, including new linen, towels and curtains. And in March 2014 we installed new multi-fuel stoves (for logs and coal) in both Trengrove and Trevenna.
Love our cottages; Trengrove's and Trevenna's peaceful seclusion in the hamlet, the gardens, and idyllic location. And it's great also being able to offer the contrast of The Boathouse being in the heart of Looe's ancient centre with the beach, harbour, fishing quay, restaurants, pubs and amenities a two minute stroll from the front door. And when we can't be there we're delighted to know other guests are enjoying it.
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 with them. All our guests have been great, we've had visitors from all over the world already, and I never imagined hosting could be so enjoyable!
We hope you, your friends, partners, families, dogs also come to love Hill House - Trengrove & Trevenna and The Boathouse as much as we do. If you come and stay please let us have your thoughts and feedback and generally tell us about your stay.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
