Our annex is a modern barn conversion linked to our main house. It's close to public transport, beaches, pubs, the Eden Project, the historic harbours of Charlestown, Fowey and restaurants. Newquay airport is 30 minutes away. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and National Trust properties, walking and cycling trails are all close by. Our place is in a quiet location with a level garden and wooded setting. It's good for couples with friends and families with older children. Choose twins or double beds.

The space

Tristram Counthouse was originally part of the Tregrehan Estate which was established in the 15th Century. The house was built in 1852 from locally mined granite and was the Count House for Wheal Tristram mine and principally used as an office. Later in 1881 the property was split into two. The outbuildings/barns had been a blacksmiths and stables for the mines horses. We have the full history of the property which makes for interesting reading for historians and is in the guests welcome guide.

Guest access

The gravelled car parking area to the front of the property and large level garden is shared space with the owners. However guests do have an outdoor seating area solely for their own purposes.

Interaction with guests

We expect guests will be too busy out and about enjoying what the area has to offer. We both work part-time but are on hand if needed and happy to offer any help with local attractions, directions and general advice if required. We will be here to welcome you on your arrival and handover the keys but after that your space is your own. We will respect your privacy as we trust you will respect ours too. Our aim is to ensure you have a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Other things to note

Parking in the car park can be tight but there is unrestricted roadside parking available directly out front. We are happy to park our cars out on the road if you prefer to park within our gated car park area. Please let us know on arrival.

A lovely welcome to a beautiful home and garden - and even two sociable chickens! - and a spacious area with everything spotlessly clean and well-equipped. Get the correct postal code as it tucked away.

The Counthouse is a lovely comfortable "upside down" house, not too for from anywhere in the County. Helen has provided a good supply of useful info with books, brochures etc., and there are DVDs aplenty. The property is well appointed and equipped, with beautiful gardens, in a very quiet location, and a bonus for us was the wonderful spectacle of the stars of the Milky Way, not visible from many places these days! Highly recommended. (We think that the Pier House Pub in Charlestown is worth a visit, although we cannot comment of the food quality.)

Our stay in Cornwall was trouble free, thanks to Helen's fantastic hosting, the home was ideal and I especially enjoyed the upstairs living room area and views out over the beautiful garden - perfect for enjoying breakfast from the kindly provided hamper! I was in the area for a wedding at the Eden Project and was even able to walk to the venue thanks to the handy location. It was a shame to leave at the end of our short stay and I would definitely return. Thanks Helen.

Helen and Richard are very welcoming hosts and have a lovely, convenient and relaxing barn conversion that makes a good jumping off point to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project as well as the local beaches. We stayed with our five and six year old girls and they loved sharing the garden and meeting the chickens.

Response from Helen:

Hi, I live at Tristram Counthouse in Cornwall with my partner Richard. We met as volunteers working for VSO overseas in Nepal and returned to Cornwall together to run a B&B. We ran the B&B for seven years before selling up, downsizing and buying a cottage for us with an annex/converted barn for friends, family and holiday guests. We have both travelled for pleasure, lived and worked overseas in Nepal, Oman, Dubai, Hong Kong, Europe, East Asia, Australia, New Zealand to name but a few. We enjoy walking, cycling, outdoor pursuits have climbed the Annurpurna in the Himalayas, cycled through Vietnam and Cambodia. We enjoy downtime in our garden, with our chickens, cat and Springer Spaniel - Bonnie. We love good locally sourced and home produced food and the company of good friends and guests. Our motto is ' go with the flow, enjoy life, live in the moment'.....We hope you will enjoy staying next door to us....we have a wealth of local information and can be available to advise should you need to know where to go to eat or visit local attractions. Richard was born nearby and knows the area very well.
