Description provided by property

Nestled amid the beautiful Cornish countryside, between Bodmin and Wadebridge, this charming hotel is beautifully set within a Grade II listed building, dating back to the early 18th century.

Situated in Washaway, Trehellas is a family-owned country house with real warmth and character, close to all that the county has to offer. A former courthouse, today, the building still retains many of its beautiful original features, including the ground floor’s Delabole slate floors and the external mounting block.

Close to the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock, Padstow, Rock, Wadebridge and numerous other beautiful towns and sites in Cornwall, Trehellas is perfectly situated for walking, cycling the famous Camel Trail, and exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.

The award-winning, beamed, romantic, candlelit restaurant, with its Delabole slate flagstone floor, offers the very best of locally sourced meats, fish, fruit, vegetables and delicious Cornish cheeses.

Trehellas started life in 1740 as a posting inn - the Washaway Inn - and was converted to a farmhouse in the late 19th century, subsequently becoming a private house in the 20th century. The elegant Old House and its neighbouring Coach House have since been completely refurbished to provide delightful hotel accommodation for couples and business people alike in the heart of Cornwall.

Trehellas has a heated outdoor swimming pool (open May to September), lovely gardens, a large patio area and ample parking for hotel guests and diners.

A range of jewellery and painted glass items by local artists are on display and for sale in reception.
