March 2024

A first time stay for us and we loved the property/location/convenience of being in the PK valley.

The facilities were excellent throughout and it was great to see how the owners take pride in the upkeep of the place, (giving an update to potential hirers at the start of each year in the visitors book).

We enjoyed chatting with the neighbours and also making friends with the small, black cat who roamed around the lanes close by. The view from the garden of the Logan Rock piece of coastline was amazing when the sun was on it. Would love to return in future. Thanks to the owners for a very well maintained property and a lovely stay at Tresillion.

Things to do near Porthcurno

Minack Theatre
Built in to the cliff face at Porthcurno, the world famous Minack Theatre runs outdoor performances from May to September attracting many who wishing for an ‘al fresco’ theatrical experience with the most beautiful back drop of the sea and sunset. This world-renowned theatre is truly a theatre under the stars. It was built by hand by Rowena Cade and her gardener Billy Rawlings and Tom Angove. The story of how the theatre came about is a tribute to one woman’s vision. Rowena died in 1983. The theatre has undergone technical modifications to cope with the increased audience numbers. However, it is still a truly unique and magical place, with seats carved into the cliffs and a stunning backdrop and sea views. Always take hats and sunscreen for matinees; and warm clothes for the evening. Arriving early with your picnic basket is positively encouraged and The Minack has its own micro-climate and rarely cancels a show. Read more on our blog post: Theatres in Cornwall.

Places to visit near Porthcurno

Conveniently located for cliff walking and bird watching, Treen is just a short walk away from the secluded sandy beaches of Porthcurno. 

Logan Rock
Logan Rock, meaning 'balanced stone' is also closeby. This granite boulder weighing approximately 80 tonnes, could once be rocked by applying just a little pressure. The story goes that it was once dislodged in 1824 by a group of British seamen wishing to show their skill and courage. Outraged by this, the local residents insisted the rock was replaced, as it had become a local landmark. Ironically this was a much more challenging feat, taking 60 men, 7 months to complete. Logan's Rock still moves today, but with much less ease than it once did.

Dating back over 400 years, the Logan Rock Inn serves good food and beer and offers a friendly, country-pub atmosphere.

Penberth Cove
Home to a small fishing fleet, Penberth Cove is nearby and provides the perfect place to relax in a tranquil setting. Ideal for a spot of birdwatching or simply enjoying the scenery.

Thanks to the owners for a very well maintained property and a lovely stay at Tresillion.

We had a lovely week with mixed weather for the next leg of our South West Coastal Path walking adventure. The property is in a great location for the beach, Minack theatre, PK museum (highly recommend) and a short (30 min) walk to Logan Rock pub and other nearby beaches. Gorgeous scenery and some bracing sea swims were enjoyed by all.

Tresillion was perfectly adequate for our stay. It felt homey and cosy and it's clear steps are being taken to modernise it too which is excellent. Overall a really enjoyable stay. Thankyou

The location was perfect, a short walk from the beach and the Minack Theatre. The house layout was great with views of the sea.

Outstanding property with lovely views from garden.everything was first clasd

Just perfect in a perfect location. You will not be disappointed!

Arriving at Tresillion with my wife and teenage son, we all quickly felt at home.

The layout of the property is unusual, with stairs in the middle leading up to the lounge and master bedroom, then leading down to two more bedrooms and the main bathroom. I liked this - it creates an upstairs and downstairs area so guests can detach and have their own semi-private space if they wish.

I didn't know if the games room would be relevant for us, but the pool table provided some welcome family bonding time and healthy competition in the evenings.

The garden is colourful and well maintained, perhaps bigger than I expected, and the views down to the sea and rocky coastline are magnificent.

We tend to return to the Porthcurno area every summer, and would be happy to stay here again.

Perfect location , quiet as at the end of a dead end track , close to coast paths and Minack. Well equipped and although a little quirky layout, spacious and comfortable. Garden views beautiful too. Comfortable double bed. Single beds not quite as comfy. Welcome pack, a little sparse compared to other cottages that we have stayed at. Really enjoyed our stay at Tresilion though. Thankyou.

Location fantastic very close to Portcurno and Minack theatre. Property very nice with quirky design.

Cleanliness could have been better. Property did not seem fully prepared for us arriving with no heating and storage heaters cold and log burner not for guests. Did get electric heaters the next day but this did not help first evening. Took while to heat up property with electric tripping when switching all heaters on. On the Wednesday the hot water went off. Engineer came out and advised too much heat coming through storage heaters as not set up properly?? The downstairs shower had been tepid at best all the time we were there.

Wifi also went off on the Wednesday although we note that this was a BT mistake and not an issue with the property or Aspects. On this basis whilst property itself was very good we did not feel that it was prepared to standard and accordingly very overpriced. We come to Cornwall every year for past 10 years renting properties each time and this was the most expensive property we have stayed and first time we have experienced the above issues with property not really to standard.

It is a shame that such a nice property and what seemed like very good and pleasant service from Aspects was let down by these issues

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry to hear that on top of the issue of arriving to the night storage heaters off, you had also had concerns with the standard of cleanliness. We would of course always expect that the standards are high for your arrival, but had we been aware of this at the time, we would have immediately sent someone over to resolve any areas of concern. Night storage heaters can take around 24 hours to get up to temperature, so these should have been put on in plenty of time for your arrival, and we can only apologise that this hadn't been the case and hope that the portable heaters that we arranged helped to keep it warm for you while the other ones got up to temperature. The electrician confirmed that the electric tripping had been due to overloading the circuit, with the night storage heaters being turned up to the highest output and the electric heaters all in use; as soon as he turned the heaters down, this resolved the issue, and having monitored it since, we are pleased to report that it has not re-occurred. We understand why all of this would have been frustrating, only to then have an issue with the WiFi. We have tried to contact you since and hope that you still had a nice time here, exploring all of the beautiful places in and around Porthcurno. We hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future, and sorry again for the issues that occurred on this occasion. Tanya, Customer Services

Tresillion was a lovely place to stay for a week as it is very spacious and comfortable. We were an over 55 group and it was ideal for us, but would also be great for a family with children.

This is a beautifully located cottage with great sea views and is close to the wonderful PorthChapel beach. All facilities were good but come prepared with plenty of provisions as no shops for miles.

Truly stunning location with spectacular views and amazing beaches and walks on the doorstep. It's a five minute walk to the minack theatre too which is quite special. I would definitely recommend.

A comfortable property in an outstanding location.

Our stay at the Tresillion was fantastic. It's a beautiful cottage perfectly located within a five minute walk to both the beach and the incredible Minack Theatre. The house was comfortable, cosy and clean, with great amenities, including a BBQ (which we enjoyed a few times). We especially loved having the pool table as we love a good competition! Not that we stayed in playing pool the whole time; the best bit about the Tresillion is that there's so much to explore around it! We walked to Land's End, we climbed up to the Iron Age castle, we hit the beautiful Porthcurno Beach and went for day trips to the likes of St Ives and St Micheal's Mount.

Overall, we loved our stay at the Tresillion and can't wait until our next visit!

Tresillion is a lovely cottage located 'up the hill' in Porthcurno. It is a matter of minutes from the Minack Theatre (the reason we were visiting Cornwall) and a short walk to the stunning beach (down the hill). The cottage has enough room for your party to spread out with a lounge, games room, kitchen and the garden area - this is especially good on those 'wet' days or where a chill day is required.

You are a short drive from Lands End and Penzance and not so far from St Ives, St Micheal's Mount, Praa Sands to name a few of the local attractions.

To note: as the cottage is up the hill at the end of Porthcurno just be aware that if you plan to walk to the beach or theatre you will encounter coaches and cars that will be travelling to the Theatre. This also serves as a reminder when travelling in your car around the narrow lanes - don't take the corners to fast as you just don't know what may be coming the other way.

The cream scones we found in the fridge went down a treat as well!!

Amazing location for walks and peacefulness

A comfortable property with a lovely garden in a superb location.

Excellent property!! We had a BBQ in the garden and were visited by bunny a, foxes and a badger! The baby fox was playing with the kitten from across the road you would not see that in London! Over all the house, destination and holiday has been excellent!! Perfect escape x
