Treargel is located in five acres surrounded by National Trust coastland with sea views to the Rame peninsula in the distance.
You can walk to Looe, Polperro or beyond using The South West Coastal Path.
We are building up a library of material about contemplation and retreating.
All our toilets are twinned with others around the world. As we believe clean facilities save lives.
Come knowing that your stay is low impact and sustainable. Where possible we buy products that are; environmentally friendly, fair trade, organic and locally made. Our electricity is provided by Ecotricity, our bread is homemade and our milk is in glass bottles from the milkman.
Naomi and Martyn are Christians and moved to Looe with their children in 2019.
Our vision is to provide a place of retreat for those who need some time out. To be an inclusive, affirming and safe place of shelter for those wrestling with life's questions or deconstructing long-held beliefs.
Treargel is built on a Christian belief, but welcomes those of all faiths and none and regardless of sexuality, race or ability (though due to the nature of the old buildings, we regret that those in wheelchairs may struggle).
For more information on our journey to be more green, read our blog A Public Inconvenience.
For example; travel here sustainably and come by train to Looe and bus to the Tencreek turning.
