Family holidays


Children’s dreams can come true at Treworgey. Here on our 150 acre farm, they can run through the fields, build dams in the stream, climb trees, ride our ponies, play tennis, picnic in a wood, toast marshmallows around a camp fire (in your fire pit) or stroke a friendly goat or pony.  We have indoor and outdoor play areas and or the energetic, we have shed space for storing your bikes or boat.  We have a wealth of fantastic sheltered small coves with sand and rock pools nearby and the big surfing beaches on the north coast are only an hour away.

But isn’t our lovely shepherd’s hut just for two? Yes, but there’s space beside each hut to pitch a tent for the children.  To make sure that you enjoy our facilities at their best we invite you to bring along up to two campers.  We charge £10 per night per camper or £50 per week per camper, which includes fluffy towels (for the shower, but not the beach please!) and the use of all the hut’s facilities.

Children are very welcome to camp with you on your stay at either shepherd’s hut at Treworgey, but we do ask you to remember that the hut itself is really designed for adults and there are a log burner and heavy or fiddly items at accessible heights for children, plus gappy steps up into the hut which is raised almost a metre from the ground at floor level. With this in mind we recommend that the hut isn’t suitable for babies and young children who are old enough to move about. For older children it can provide an exciting holiday with a difference. Please ask us if you would like more specific information for your needs.


The Watch House provided magical family holidays for the Trinick family and friends for decades. The excitement of the original built-in bunks and living by candlelight are irresistible and there are all sorts of adventures to be had on the coast path and in local coves.   The Watch House is a place to get back to nature and to simple pleasures, from card games to books, rock pools to sea-swimming.  No electricity and limited phone signal means screens won’t last long and children rediscover their imaginative talents in no time!

Parents do of course need to be safety-conscious on the coast, but the grass area immediately around the Watch House protects children from the cliff edge and the water, so you can enjoy playing and eating outside without worrying, so long as children remain in sight.
