The sun sets on yet another glorious day at Trevone Bay

Some of the cleanest beaches in England have just been revealed and we are delighted to see that Trevone Bay is one of just 71 beaches around England’s coastline to have secured this prestigious title.

Blue Flag status is awarded to beaches meeting stringent environmental criteria and we are proud to have been awarded the Blue Flag once again setting the beach alongside the likes of Brighton and Whitby who also made the list.

The Blue Flag is a guarantee to visitors of the beach that it has excellent facilities, is litter free and has achieved a high standard of water quality so not only do we celebrate the natural quality of water we are proud to have on our doorstep but also the hard work of the council, contractors, local residents and organisations for helping to keep our beach so clean – do please remember to do your bit when you visit and try to ensure there only thing that you leave behind are memories of your visit.

Contact us today for current availability of our two person self catering holiday flat just a stones throw from the Blue Flag beach itself!

It is never too early to begin planning your next visit or stay in Trevone especially if you are looking to secure a preferred date.

Every year it seems to get earlier and earlier but with guests reserving their spaces as they leave in 2018 to ensure their preferred dates, it does mean that we have limited availability at certain times and we do hate to disappoint so if you are thinking of visiting Trevone in 2019 (and who could blame you!) then do get in touch to check that we can accommodate.

We only require a small deposit to confirm your booking but it does ensure that you reserve the dates that you want and aren’t forced to compromise.

We do hope that we will experience the glorious weather that we have had in 2018 which was not only sunnier but lasted so much longer into the year. Those that came after the summer rush will have enjoyed not only fantastic weather but a much quieter beach and village to enjoy to themselves.

We look forward to welcoming you to Trevone in 2019 – whatever time of year you decide to visit!!

The Independent newspaper recently highlighted Padstow as one of the UK’s top 8 Christmas Markets to visit in 2018.

We believe it is the small, personal atmosphere that has been created by this festival that prompted the Independent to showcase the market against some of the more commercial run markets which appear up and down the country.

The festival features a wide range of arts and crafts and of course lots of sumptuous food and drinks along with celebrity chef demonstrations.

The market runs from December 6th-9th and more information can be found here http://www.padstowchristmasfestival.co.uk

The stunning sea at Trevone Bay shot during August 2018

With the 2018 Summer season now well and truly behind us we thought we would share a video recently uploaded to YouTube where you can once again see just how stunning the area is and as you will see from the picture above which comes from the video just look at how crystal clear that sea is.

Contact us today to check availability for the 2019 Summer season, we already have a number of weeks reserved as regular visitors will know it is best not to leave it too long if you have a specific date in mind.

The best beach in Cornwall

Readers of online news website cornwalllive.com have just voted Trevone as Cornwall’s favourite award winning beach with double the amount of votes of some of the more popular beaches such as Great Western in Newquay.

Already boasting a “Seaside Award” and “Blue Flag” this new award comes from a website where the audience is mainly local people as it is focussed on local news.

So effectively this award has come from the people of Cornwall and what better judges can you get than people who live in the county, they should know best!

You can read more about the accolade and read an online version of the printed supplement here https://www.cornwalllive.com/special-features/cornwalls-best-award-winning-beach-1967341

As we approach the end of summer you can almost hear the beach breath a sigh of relief as quieter times are ahead.

Summer in Trevone is fantastic and it is great to see so many happy people enjoying themselves and the surroundings but we know that there are those that seek a much quieter life and come the end of the August Bank Holiday weekend, things start to get a lot quieter making it the ideal location for those looking to enjoy a more quiet pace of life.

In addition to all of the things you can do yourself such as walking, bird watching, sight seeing etc so many of the local facilities and attractions stay open as they too recognise that there is a large demand for “extending” the traditional season but of course with not so many people here you get to see things at a more leisurely pace, get to park the car at the front overlooking the sea and get to spend time looking at the exhibitions – a win win situation if you ask us!

So whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday exploring the north cornwall coast, perhaps sampling some of the fantastic foodie destinations that the area offers or maybe catching sight of late summer bird visitors to our shores, Trevone has everything to offer whatever the time of the year.

The beginning of September is most defiantly our favoured time of year as you get all the benefits of everything the region has to offer along with the late summer sun but with fewer people.

Contact us today to discover how affordable our self contained self-catering flat for two less than 200 yards from the beach can be and treat yourself to a late summer break in Trevone.

One thing that we regularly experience in Trevone is a great sunset, and we are certainly not complaining about that as it is nature’s most spectacular lightshow and provides the perfect end to a beautiful day.

Cornwall has always been a haven for artists attracted by the quality of light and it is this quality which enhances and makes our sunsets so spectacular in the south west.

A lot of the intense colour is actually down to how the sand and the sea interact and in particular bright sunlight hitting the seabed with the reflected light being bounced back and filtered by the water giving crisp and clear hues of colour.

Air quality and the lack of pollution also provides an optimum canvas for the sun to display its vibrant colours as it disappears at the end of the day.

The benches at Rocky Beach in Trevone provide a fantastic viewpoint to watch as the sun sets with Trevose Head to the far left and the Madrips to the right giving a beautiful panorama across the bay.

And of course the joy of staying at The Croft in Trevone means that you have not far to go when the sun does set being less than 200 yards from the beach.

Contact us today to check availability or to find out more about our self-catering holiday flat for 2 people.

Trevone Bay on 25th July 2018

We just thought we would share a quick picture of how it looks today at Trevone. Today was forecast as being overcast and cloudy (but no rain) and here you can see Trevone once again worked its magic to bring as yet another glorious day.

The area between the mouth of the River Camel and Trevose Head at times seems to have its own micro-climate with villages just a short distance down the coast often reporting fog or light rain when we remain bathed in sunshine.

We have limited availability for this summer but do get in touch if you would like to make the most of this weather and enjoy a last minute summer break in Trevone.

We keep hearing the word “staycation” banded around by the media but when you look at what it means and what it stands for, we couldn’t agree more.

Why go abroad when right on our very own doorsteps we have so much of our own wonderful country to explore. And this sentiment was also recently echoed by BBC Radio 4 presenter Nick Robinson who in a recent interview wondered aloud:

“Why on earth I’ve spent all this money going abroad next week”

But Nick is not alone, he is one of just 2.5 million holiday makers who have the same idea and are jetting off to foreign climates the first weekend of the school holidays and with the weather we are currently experiencing in Cornwall we know that Nick will not be the only one questioning why he is flying abroad and leaving this fantastic weather behind.

Those crystal clear mediterranean blue seas – we get them too, those scorching hot days where the sand is almost too hot to walk on – we get them too, those arrive 2 hours early, flight delayed, luggage delayed – we don’t get them!

The whole purpose of a holiday is to relax and unwind and as we hear time after time sadly when venturing overseas sadly this is not the case and you may actually need a holiday to get over getting back.

Cornwall is such wonderful county to explore with breathtaking scenery and world renowned attractions such as The Eden Project (just 22 miles from our holiday flat), the Tate St Ives (just 45 miles down stunning coast roads) and numerous historical monuments, homes and gardens to discover.

It truly is no wonder that people return time after time to Cornwall – it is the perfect escape.

Our self catering flat for two people just 200 yards from the sandy beach at Trevone is available throughout the year for visitors. Whether you choose to stay local and enjoy everything that Trevone has to offer or explore further afoot you are assured of a warm welcome. We do still have availability so even if it is a last minute decision, it is always worth checking to see what we have available as we can be more flexible (and cheaper) than agency bookings.

Clear skies and seas being enjoyed on the north Cornish coast

Being one of only eight beaches in Cornwall to have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag, we thought we would take few minutes to discuss just what it takes and means to the village to have been awarded a Blue Flag.

Run by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) the Blue Flag award is internationally awarded each year to beaches and marinas which work towards strict water quality control, environmental education and information, environment management.

When judging beaches, it is not just the water quality that is monitored but also the facilities available to keep the beach clean such as provision of bins, toilets etc as well as other criteria such as disabled access, lifeguard patrols.

Come and see why Trevone was awarded one of just 8 Blue Flags in Cornwall in 2018. Our self-catering flat for 2 people is situated just 200 yards from the award winning Blue Flag beach at Trevone. Catering for two people, the flat has twin bed bedroom, living room, well appointed kitchen and bath/shower room. The flat is located on a private cul-de-sac with free on-road parking for the duration of your stay as are utilities such as electricity which are all included within your price – contact us to check availability today.
