IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
"Tredethy House is a unique property we fell in love with so much we decided to move. Peaceful and quiet, amidst wonderful nature and grounds to be discovered with original planting so typical of the Heritage Cornish gardens with blooms of flowers from Spring to early Autumn. It is a magical place to bring up a family, while running an exciting business in an unforgettable location. The size is just right and the location is ideal. The time our family has spent here has been an unforgettable experience."
