Our Working Farm

The Farm

With 158 acres of peaceful farmland situated in some of the loveliest countryside in all of North Cornwall, with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, and from the top of the farm you can see spectacular views of the sea and moors.


Trentinney is a mixed farm with crops, cattle, sheep, and some poultry. Guests are free to roam about the fields as they wish and intermingle with the animals at their leisure.
If you book your holiday at Trentinney during Winter through Spring, you stand a chance of catching our lambing season (typically occurring around February), in which you are able to not only see the lambs as young as only a couple of hours old, but you are also able to hold and feed them too - making this a great family experience for all!

Our History

The traditional stone built barns, most of which are listed buildings, were built of local stone and slates from the nearby slate quarry at Delabole. Some of the buildings date back to the 16th century, but the history of Trentinney goes back much further.
According to legend, around the year 960 King Arthur killed the Lord of Tretiny (Trentinney) after the Lord had killed a white cow belonging to Arthur's niece, now known as St Endellentia.
