Lonely Planet review
Kindle your artistic spirit in a remote, restored Georgian mansion. Featuring an on-site pottery and the welcome of a gracious hostess, Trevaccoon delivers unpretentious class and is ideally situated for exploring the rugged north coast. And with sporadic mobile phone coverage, nobody can disturb your peace.
Unmistakable as you approach along the tiny country road, Trevaccoon's great white facade is imposing - some would say cold - and offers no clue to what lies within. The house has been painstakingly restored with stripped pine floors, high vaulted ceilings, calming decor and sparkling chandeliers. The five double bedrooms take their names from local bays and beaches, with simple white en suites that bring the breezy seaside air straight to your morning ablutions. Roam the large gardens, trot down to the coast path or, when the weather turns, snuggle up in the drawing room by a crackling open fire. But as ever it's the little touches that make a difference. Fresh flowers adorn the hallway; you might find a cheeky decanter in your room and breakfast is seemingly never ending. We haven't been able to face another Welsh cake since.
