Who are we?

Treargel is the Cornish name for a 'home of retreat'.

A place where you can get away from it all in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

We provide accommodation and hospitality for people wanting to

breathe deeply, rest quietly and think more clearly. 

Coronavirus update 2021

We are taking extra precautions in terms of cleaning, physical distancing and adding time between guests, to make Treargel as safe as possible.

We have created a Reflective Walk anyone can do, in their own time and space. Go to the Reflect page for more information.

Quotes from recent guests

"“Loved using Treargel for our church away day.  It was big enough to accommodate us but cosy enough to feel intimate.  I ate too much lunch though – lovely food!” St Martin's Liskeard 2021

"The photos don’t do this place justice, a great place to stay and right on the rugged Cornish coastline and just a few minutes by car to the beautiful village of Looe. Perfect place with space for family and children."       Neil

Fantastic stay at the Piggery, thoughtful touches throughout. Wonderful stay, thank you. (Piggery guest)


We had a fantastic time at The Byre and I would recommend this place to anyone. We played scrabble when it rained and you can walk to two lovely quiet bays for swimming on the National trust coastal walk. Looe is under 10 mins drive in the car. This felt like a home away from home and we loved that there was birdseed to feed the birds which we could see from the patio doors. We So hope to go back. (Byre guest)

Thank you all for a wonderful oasis in which to chill out and recharge batteries. Lovely walks and views. (Piggery guest)

Thank you for this beautiful, peaceful oasis in the midst of nature, so conducive to stillness, reflection, prayer and rest. The new kitchen roof and anti-slippery bands on the deck are very precious on rainy days! The kingfisher and deer were a lovely surprise! (Hermitage guest)

We had a wonderful stay and The Piggery was just perfect in every way. Clean, very well equipped and with all the great little touches such as plenty of washing up liquid, detergent for the washing machine etc. The setting is lovely; close to Looe but far enough away to make the most of the countryside and the peace and quiet. It was ideal for us visiting friends and relatives in the area and we've already discussed coming back to you in the next visit.

Thank you for your attention to detail and gentle presence. the labyrinth was particularly special. As was parking the car for the week and being in the Cornish air and coastline. Thank you, thank you, thank you. (Piggery guest)

I've loved my time in the Hermitage. It has been restful, grounding, and healing to be here; so close to nature and so well supported to go deeper into the preciousness of life. I've enjoyed walking the labyrinth. I've never done one before and found the information in the pack inspiring and practical in how to engage with it. I've enjoyed the space, the wood burner, the decking. Thank you for being so warm and welcoming and providing such a wonderful space for solitude and reflection.
