A comfortable, well equipped and recently renovated 1970s bungalow half a mile from Constantine Bay - a lovely wide sandy beach with rock pools at one end, much loved by both families and surfers alike.  Trefoil is in a very quiet location and yet only about 800 yards to the championship golf course at Trevose.  In the summer you can sit out in the large garden with a southerly rear aspect and in the winter it benefits from central heating and an open fire.  Whatever the time of year you decide to visit, this is definitely a property you will want to return to again and again, the ideal base for a Cornish holiday.

Superb extension since we last stayed at Trefoil a few years ago. A very ‘easy’ property to stay in. The most comfortable bed I’ve slept in, ever. Hoping we can come back with family next time.

Jennifer Mccrea,

We had a wonderful holiday in this cottage.

Mrs Wendy Taylor,

We have stayed here several times before and the refurbishment is absolutely wonderful.

Mrs Susan Mason,


If you're looking for a traditional family beach holiday, Constantine Bay is hard to beat. With a wide, sweeping stretch of golden sand, it is one of those places that families return to year after year (and often generation after generation). A versatile area, Constantine Bay has something that will appeal to almost everyone, whether you're looking for an active holiday including surfing and other water-sports, a social gathering at the Trevose Golf Club or Treglos Hotel, or a family- and dog-friendly holiday where you can spend all day on the beach, or walk for miles along the winding cliff paths found along this stretch of coastline.  The beach allows dogs all year round, meaning that you don't have to leave your best friend at home when you holiday here.  And, of course, the kids will love exploring the tidal rock pools and wide expanse of sand that has long made this beach one of the best-loved along this stretch of the beautiful North Cornish coast. A popular holiday destination for those 'in the know', the Bay attracts many groups of families and friends who often holiday together, turning the area into a little community within a community in the busy summer months.
