Cornish Mining World Heritage Site

In November Peter & Liz were invited by “Discover the Extraordinary” to visit many of the Cornish mining sites to see for themselves why these unspoilt mining landscapes throughout Cornwall have been given World Heritage status. In 2006 selected mining landscapes across Cornwall and west Devon were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, placing Cornish mining heritage on a par with international treasures like Machu Pichu, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

The largest World Heritage Site in the UK, with over 20,000 hectares spread across Cornwall and west Devon, it offers myriad experiences to explore our world-changing mining culture. The Site contains over 200 iconic Cornish engine houses (the largest concentration of such monuments anywhere in the world). But Cornish mining is about far more than mine sites – the mining industry impacted on all aspects of life. Many of our towns and villages were either transformed by a growing industrial population or newly built to house them. They reveal their history in the rows of distinctive terraced cottages, shops, chapels and substantial public buildings. Today you’ll find plenty of great cafés, pubs, restaurants, art galleries and museums.

Begin your journey to the soul of Cornwall via the ten unique, diverse areas that form the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

Welcome to Trewince Holiday Lodges!

We are situated in the centre of 26-acres in a prime position overlooking the English Channel at the southern tip of the Roseland Peninsula. Our estate is fully landscaped and almost surrounded by water. Gerrans Bay is to the front of the Georgian manor with the Percuil River to the west. Guests can walk through our woodland which leads to our own private quay on Froe Creek where boats have access down the Carrick Roads to the sea. Carrick Roads is an expansive waterway which forms a large natural harbour between Falmouth and the Roseland. The lower part of our estate looks across to St. Mawes. We welcome self-catering and timeshare guests.

Our 3 bedroomed luxury timber lodges are welcoming self-catering holiday homes which accommodate up to 6 people and have unique interior touches. All are fully furnished and generously equipped with bed linen, duvets, pillows, cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, washer/drier, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and iron. They are also equipped with Freesat digital television or Sky.

Trewince has a 13m indoor pool with sauna and spa bath as well as children’s splash pool. We use the latest UV water treatment instead of the chemical approach.

All our staff live locally and we pride ourselves on local knowledge. Whether it be something you would like to see, taste or experience we will help you find it. You, the guest, are what we focus on. Low-occupancy discounts are available at certain times of the year and we advertise last minute discounts on our website. Please contact us for details.

The Roseland has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty andHeritageCoast. The area has great places to eat, together with several places to hire motor boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks and wind surfers. There are many spectacular walks to be experienced: just ask our staff and they will be pleased to make recommendations.

Trewince has lodges for sale and is also affiliated to RCI Timeshare for holiday exchanges or you can of course spend all your time here on the Roseland.

For old-world charm, relaxed lifestyle, quiet beaches, coastal walks, sailing from our own quay, Trewince is the place to stay.
