The history of Trerose is far too extensive to go into in the detail it deserves here. Every inch the classic Cornish manor house (but not so big such that it isn’t homely), its heritage stretches back over centuries.
The present building itself sits where its medieval predecessor once stood and there are traces of the ancient to be found in and around the property (the architectural historian will find much to ponder here).
Formerly the home of the renowned Killigrew family – pirates to some, seafarers to others – whose connections with Falmouth are a matter of record, Trerose is now the family home of Tessa Phipps. And after many years of restoring the property, she now welcomes guests from all over the world who seek luxury B&B accommodation in one of Cornwall’s most secluded spots.
There are three guest rooms in all: The French Room, Badger Room and Four Poster Room. All are en-suite and classically decorated with antiques, rare prints and watercolour paintings.
The manor is set within its own mature garden which guests are welcome to explore and enjoy, while breakfast can either be served on the terrace during warmer months, or in the kitchen by a cosy AGA during cooler times of the year.
