The village of Tregony in Cornwall is often referred to as the ‘gateway to the Roseland’. The exceptionally wide Fore Street is a relic from the days when this was a busy port and market town. Holiday cottages in Tregony feel like a home from home experience. There’s a great village pub and local shop within just a few minutes walk.
The woods and riverside in the area between here and Ruan Lanihorne are fantastic to explore. The river is a firm favourite with ornithologists. In the spring the magical Lamorran Woods are alive with bluebells. You’re quite likely to pass as many deer or pheasants as you are motorists along this stretch of the Roseland. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and Charlestown harbour are only a short drive away. In Truro, just 15 minutes away from Tregony you have a wealth of shops and eateries. Heading further into the Roseland you can find sandy beaches at Pendower, Cream Teas at Mellinsey Mill near Veryan, and sailing and boat trips in St Mawes.
The port has long since silted up due in part to china clay workings up stream, but Tregony has retained its charm. Tregony has an iconic clock tower on the Fore Street and the seventeenth century almshouses which boast an unusual wooden gallery. The site of a twelfth century Norman castle known as Treg-ney from which the village got its name is situated on Tregony Hill.
