Access Statement

Vehicular Access

Vehicular access is by the Lansallos highway off the B3359 between the villages of Pelynt and Lanreath. There are two driveways into Tremaine Green with a car parking space near each cottage, some of which are covered.  Overflow car parking is in a designated car park 50 meters from the centre of the Green.  The internal roads of Tremaine Green are of bound bitumen macadam and with some loose surface gravel.

Public transport

The nearest bus stop is in the village of Pelynt 1 mile distant. The nearest train station is at Looe some 4.5 miles distant (10 minutes by taxi). Our nearest Airports are Newquay, Plymouth and Exeter (all 40 minutes or more away by taxi). The area is well served by taxis.

Accommodation

The cottages of Tremaine Green vary in age of construction from 1640’s to 1980’s.  As such the buildings are designed to the criteria and requirements of those times.  Investigation into changing the cottages to achieve the various levels of mobility access under the Visit Britain criteria have been made; a cost appraisal found much non-effective.

The site of Tremaine Green is not on level ground, but on a small gradient from West to North–East.  All cottages have a front door step or sill to directly access them.  Cottage access details are as follows:

  • The 1760's Ploughman's three-bedroom cottage has a downstairs livingroom, kitchen and an ensuite (shower bathroom) double bedroom all on the same level.  The bathroom doorway is only 2'3"/ 69cm wide, and the shower has a 4" /10cm lip.
  •  The Cobbler’s and Gamekeeper’s cottages can be accessed on level ground through their French windows.  However these cottages are conventional in layout with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.
  • The Tinner’s cottage can be accessed over its front lawn on level ground.  Downstairs in this 3-bedroom cottage is a small bunkroom and a small shower-bathroom as well as the kitchen-dinning room, the lounge is upstairs.
  • The Housekeeper’s one-bedroom cottage is accessible over its level front lawn; however, the bedroom and bathroom are upstairs.
  • The 1640’s Farmhouse has a downstairs bathroom and the three bedrooms upstairs up a narrow winding staircase.
  • The remaining cottages all have upstairs bathrooms, accessed by stairs.

Should an enquirer have a particular access need they should make this known so the staff of Tremaine Green cottages can offer factual information on the cottages and grounds, from which the enquirer can best assess if we suit their needs:           

  • The Mariner’s and Gardener's one-bedroom cottages are the only cottages that are bungalows with all the floors at the same level, however both have a front door step. An access ramp is available for the Mariner's cottages.  Neither cottage has the floor area to meet disabled grading criteria.
  • The Cobbler’s and Gamekeeper’s cottages can be accessed on level ground through their French windows.  However these cottages are conventional in layout with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.                   
  • The Tinner’s cottage can be accessed over its front lawn on level ground.  Downstairs in this 3-bedroom cottage is a small bunkroom and a small shower-bathroom as well as the kitchen-dining room, the lounge is upstairs.                   
  • The Housekeeper’s one-bedroom cottage is accessible over its level front lawn; however, the bedroom and bathroom are upstairs.     
  • The 1760's Ploughman's cottage has an ensuite double bedroom downstairs along with the porch, livingroom and kitchen all on the same level with no steps.
  • The 1640’s Farmhouse has a downstairs bathroom and three bedrooms upstairs up a narrow winding staircase.  There is an ensuite shower bathroom in the double bedroom upstairs.
  • The 1760's Ploughman's three-bedroom cottage has a downstairs living room, kitchen and an ensuite (shower bathroom) double bedroom all on the same level.  The bathroom doorway is only 2'3"/ 69cm wide, and the shower has a 4" /10cm.

Charlie, our dog, loved the beaches and splashing about in the waves. We still have loads to do and see - a week just isn't long enough. Next year I'm booking two weeks.

The cottage is in a lovely position and very clean.

Discovered Tremaine Green by chance on the Internet. What a beautiful location! Have booked again for Christmas.

This was our first holiday since starting our family and the children loved every minute of it. We look forward to the next visit.

We loved the Farmhouse. So comfortable and warm. The baby loved the ducks; he tried to pack one in his suitcase...

Tremaine Green is even better than we expected and we look forward to another visit.

Fourteenth visit, fourth Christmas. See you again after Easter!.

Family dog Hamlet the Great Dane came to visit us. He is very big and friendly but he head butted me in the ....twice. OUCH! (Happily he has grown out of this puppy welcome).

Our thanks go to Justin and Penny for making us feel welcome and at home. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and shall be back in the near future.

Our 3 year old had a fantastic time being able to run around without fear of traffic.

Both of us were amazed to find this place so full of character after expecting something perhaps a little more commercial.

Fantastic cottage and area for our honeymoon. Will be back next year

Back again. As usual a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday, this is becoming our second home!

The Cornwall area is one of the best areas we have seen or holidayed in, together with our stay at your beautiful cottages and grounds.

What a lovely place... oh, to be able to stay a while longer.

We found the facilities excellent and a very well appointed cottage. Our reception and the courtesy afforded to us were marvellous.

I've been coming here since I was about 5 years old. We will still keep returning for years to come. (now over 21).

Travelled from London. Really nice welcome. Marvellous cottage. Area Tranquil. Idyllic location. Natural beauty. Everyone friendly. Excellent Walks. Evenings peaceful. We're booking again!

The only holiday we have had which was exactly as described in the brochure.

Lovely cottage, the owners went out of there way to make sure it was perfect for us, would go back again and have recommended it to all are friends. Mr & Mrs Hayward Jun 18. The Green

Once again, many thanks to Justin and Penny, not least for the welcome tea-tray on arrival. This is a delightful spot and our fourth visit will not be our last.

Thank you for providing such a lovely setting to have a good holiday.

This is a great location and we shall be back...
