Panorama Trebah Beach 180°

At Trebah, we have our very own secluded, private beach on the Helford River, with views that stretch out to the open sea.

Polgwiddon Cove, is south-facing and tidal, it is the perfect halfway point to rest and enjoy the view. A small, narrow passageway of steps takes you over the South West Coast Path and onto the private beach. The view opens up a wonderful maritime scene, of small sailing boats moored in the waters, a shingle beach and rock pools. A perfect place to skim stones.

In 1944, the beach was used as an embarkation point for a regiment of 7,500 of the 29th US Infantry Division for the assault landing on Omaha beach, part of the D -Day Landings.

At the end of the war there was a succession of changes of ownership. The Martin family cleared the moor at the bottom and introduced the massed planting of Hydrangeas.

The Boathouse is situated on the beach, this was originally built by the racing driver and designer of Healey cars, Donald Healey, to store his boats when he lived at Trebah in the 1960s. Donald Healey was also responsible for removing the infrastructure and concrete installed during WW2 and undertaking improvements to the lower lakes.

The Boathouse Cafe serves fresh coffee, a range of teas and the famous Roskilly’s Cornish ice-cream in crunchy wafer cones. The fabulous ‘Hokey Pokey’ to old favourites, ‘Rum and Raisin’, mouthwatering originals like ‘Strawberry’, ‘Chocolate’ and creamy ‘Vanilla’. The Boathouse Cafe is open from March to September, subject to weather conditions.

Trebah provides complimentary buckets and spades and if you’ve forgotten your sun-cream, this can be purchased at the Boathouse.

Dogs are welcome on the beach, but must be under supervision at all times please.

Thanks a lot Nadia this beach was a perfect place for a little rest as we had a nice walk trough the garden. It was perfectly sunny weather but the water was still a bit cold. We had a nice cup of coffee here and than walked on, back into the garden.

Regards, Erik

Thanks cjlin it was a wonderful place for a break and a cup of coffee!

Dank Berend en Louisa nee had nog geen dag geprikt maar zal dat vanavond even doen. Uiteraard is door de grote beeldhoek de boel hier aardig vertekend en loopt het strand aan de linker en rechterzijde in werkelijkheid in één stuk achter mij langs.

Greetings, Vriendelijk dank, Erik

Geweldig mooie pano Erik. Perfect gestitcht en het brengt weer in me boven hoe verwonderlijk het was om vanuit die tuin via een doorgangetje hier te komen. Alsof je van de ene naar een andere wereld ging. Hier waan je je als het ware in een soort tropisch paradijsje.



Erik van den Ham on July 19, 2012

Dank je Jack het is inderdaad een rare overgang van het weelderige groen naar dit stenige strandje met mediterrane sfeer. Was wel fijn hier om even af te koelen.

Groeten, Erik
