A mention in the Domesday Book gives us some indication of the age of Trenderway which we know, at one time, was one of the manors of Trelawne, this being of some importance as the Trelawney family have a vital place in the history of Cornwall. Historic documents show that Trenderway was part of the Trelawney estate until the first decade of the 20th century before being sold. It was then farmed by different parts of two families until 2008 when we moved here and took over from the Tuckett family.
Sometimes you just know, and we knew the moment we drove into the yard. Before we even got out of the car, the magic that is Trenderway enchanted us and we were hooked. In the ten years we’ve been here, we’ve learned that, whatever the season, Trenderway charms its visitors and leaves happy footprints in their memories.
Along with our wonderful team, we look forward to sharing the charm of Trenderway with you.
Trenderway Farm has a ancient history of farming that stretches back to the Domesday book and beyond.
Before Yaron and Jacquie arrived here in 2008, Anthony was farming sheep and Lynne was running a successful 5 star B&B. Today, Trenderway Farm supports a pedigree herd of South Devon Cattle and an apple orchard with over forty varieties, most of them heritage varieties.
Before the restoration of the old granite barn opposite the farmhouse, all that could be seen were the massive grain silos that were long redundant. A winter project to slowly dismantle them revealed an amazing space, with rooms and doorways that were completely obscured before. Careful and painstaking restoration work followed with complete fidelity to the correct, traditional methods (take a look at the floors when you visit) and in 2012 Helen and Ciaran became the first couple to use The Linhay for their fantastic, musical wedding. They brought their own band, with Mad Dog Mcrae playing a great set on the gallery to launch Trenderway as the wonderful, unique wedding venue it is today.
