Trewarren is a 1918 house having a charm all of its own and retaining most of the original features of the house. The house has not been significantly re-structured inside, so there are plenty of doors, hall space, nooks and crannies. It has a wonderful feel and now works extremely well for two families. There are endless places to sit and relax or to get together for fun and enjoyment. Although not luxurious, Trewarren is a comfortable, atmospheric and extremely amenable house for fantastic beach holidays.
Four bedrooms are on the ground floor. One has king bed and is across the hall from the kitchen. The window looks out over the back garden and there is a delightful porthole window looking to the side. The room has two small hanging cupboards, a chest of drawers, bedside tables and lights. At the bottom of the staircase in the back of the house is a twin-bedded room which is furnished with wardrobe, chest of drawers, and has a wash basin, and heated towel rail.
The other two ground floor bedrooms are situated by the main bathroom - one having twin beds with a small wardrobe and drawer space while overlooking the front garden. The other could be considered the dormitory! It has twin beds and a set of bunk beds as well as a wardrobe and chest of drawers. This room is highly suitable for four children or can be used as a family room. The window here looks out to the west side of the house.
Up the stairs you will find a beautiful double room, with splendid dual aspect views looking out to Trevose Head and down to Stepper Point. This room has a wash basin, chest of drawers and hanging cupboard.
The main bathroom is found off the hall, and provides a bath with shower over. There is also a loo and hand basin. There is also a shower room at the bottom of the stairs, with shower, loo and basin. Off the kitchen, there is also a cloakroom with loo – and there is a an outside shower for showering off after a hard day at the beach.
The main sitting room can be found in the centre of the house. With sofa and easy chairs and open fire, this is a cosy and comfortable room. The TV and DVD player can also be found here. Upstairs, there is the spacious attic sitting room with comfortable seating a flat screen TV, Klipsch IPod/Mp3 hifi, a table for playing games and a fabulous view of the Atlantic Ocean. This room is perfect for getting away from the hubbub, family games, or as a base for children and teenagers.
At the front of the house, facing the sea, there is a half-glazed extension with beautiful stripped wooden floors and views across the garden. It’s a lovely place to sit and read or just relax. In the garden, the gazebo is another place to relax or even to eat lunch when the weather is not quite hot enough to be outside. It works well as another living area to be used for a large family group.
- Kitchen and Dining
The kitchen and dining room can be found at the back of the house, away from the sea. The dining room has windows on three sides and so is light and bright. It has a table large enough to sit eight people comfortably, but is rather more neighbourly if ten or twelve sit round it. As this room is an extension to the original house, one can pass food and plates through one of the kitchen windows. It works very well! The kitchen is now a lovely open area with plenty of period features and feel. It has masses of cupboard space and work surfaces. It is well equipped with an electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, food blender and hand held electric whisk.
Trewarren is now equipped with wireless broadband. The washing machine and tumble drier can be found in the downstairs loo just off the kitchen. Heating is provided by effective storage heaters and some electric panel heaters. The fire in the sitting room is also used to good effect in colder months.
The spacious garden is laid to lawn with a gazebo which has seating, curtains and a great period feel. There is garden furniture and a picnic table supplied so you can enjoy your meals outside or you can enjoy a drink during the long summer evenings. The garden runs right around the house, and provides plenty of space for cricket or other ball sports. You can always find an area round the house to shelter from any breeze. An outside shower is provided by the front door. There is parking for 2 or 3 cars outside the garden gate.
Trewarren lies behind the sand dunes at Harlyn Bay and is reached by a private road, Sandy Lane, off the road running down through Harlyn. A short walk to the end of the lane leads over a stile, down a well-worn footpath and straight onto the middle of Harlyn beach. Harlyn beach is one of the best family beaches around – very long with plenty of sand even at high tide. The beach car park is at one end of the beach, and many do not make further than the 1st half of the beach. From where the footpath ends in steps down to the beach, the beach is absolutely magnificent – with fantastic rock formations, small caves and overhangs in which to sunbathe and relax. When the sun is out and the air is warm, this end of Harlyn really feels almost tropical.
Alternatively, you can walk down the road in a few minutes to Harlyn bridge, and onto the beach by the car park. Here you can hire surf boards and book surf lessons. Harlyn is well renowned for surfing – being protected from the prevailing winds and yet still picking up plenty of waves. It’s a perfect place to learn, and you will find that many surf schools do most of their training here.
The Harlyn Inn can be found just behind the beach down by the bridge – providing refreshments and pub food every day of the week. There are also pool tables here. In the same building, there is a beach shop and take away. There is also a take-away van in the car park up on the headland during high season – good for energy after a swim in the sea!

I'm sorry you found the beds uncomfortable. There have been two new beds put in place this year. I will pass this feedback on to the owner.
We have now supplied the house with more wine glasses and checked the rest of the crockery etc... the house is now fully stocked.

We had a fabulous time for our week and the weather was blue skies for most of the week
All of my party loved Trewarren. We liked that it was a period property that had been well maintained but not “modernised”, so a lot of original features are still there, such as the fabulous slate shelved pantry. It would be interesting to know the history of the property if you have any information on it.
