In the early 18th century Trehellas House was an Inn by the Lord Molesworth from the Pencarrow estate behind us. It was built near the junction of 3 ancient tracks. The junction was marked by a Celtic cross which was later partly destroyed by Oliver Cromwell, This cross now stands on the green in front of the house it is believed to be the only one remaining in Cornwall to bear the fleur-de-lys.
Originaly known as the Washaway Inn, the sign depicted a woman at her wash tub with the words "Washaway your troubles"
For many years the petty sessions of the Hundred of Trigg were held in the building, but the court closed when the inn lost its licence in 1890 and became a farmhouse. This room is now our principal bedroom but is still as originally built except for the beautifull chandelier that replaced the original lighting.
The property resorted to a Country House Hotel in the 70s, Trehellas House & Cornwall welcomes you.
The hotel is close to the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock House, Padstow, Rock, Wadebridge and numerous other beautiful towns and sites in Cornwall.
