Enchantment can be found from the get-go as you travel up the tree lined driveway to discover this Grade II listed house, worthy of a storybook. A charming clock tower and dovecote stands watch over the pretty walled garden, while wild vines convolute across the property’s golden façade. Large, white sash windows, which shine brightly against the sandy stone evoke a sense of Brontë-esk magic. And yet this abode is more than just a fairy tale folly, it is a home that feels good to live in, a place where anything can happen.
Step beyond the archway entrance into a hallway, flagged with slate and bordered by reclaimed church pews, and slip off muddy boots after a woodland walk. Be led down into the open-plan kitchen/diner – a space that calls out for grandiloquent group feasts and dance-filled soirées. Throw open the French doors to extend the intimate gathering onto the sprawling lawns during summer months, or retire to the wood-burner warmed snug during winter, which sits at the far end of the room.
Through distant doorways this stylish sanctuary continues into the sumptuous drawing room, where oodles of deep seating and congregation space invite lovers of lounging a place to spread out beside the open fire and around the square ottoman, for a game of chequers and after-supper chocolate. Encased miniature tall ships conjure up whispers of Trerose’s past pirate owners, The Killigrews, who acquired Trerose in the late 1500s.
The handsome library, with its wood-panelled walls and shelves stocked with a curated collection of choice reads, offers a quiet refuge next to the heart of the home.
Upstairs, take your pick of blissful bedrooms, each of which have their own appeal and gorgeous garden views. From dreamy doubles with beautiful bay windows, to a charming children’s twin adorned in vintage, patterned wallpaper and ever-so comfortable beds.
Run wild and reconnect in the house’s verdant grounds; the ultimate English country garden. Drink in the sweet countryside air, set up picnic blankets on the lawns, and when dusk falls, come together around the firepit to chatter around the crackling tinder.
We love a home that’s just that little bit out of the ordinary, and this one certainly fits the bill. A heady mix of romance and history, Trerose Manor is the ultimate self-catering escape for up to ten guests and one dog.
