Usually for my week in photos I share the happenings on the farm. I’ve looked at the early signs of spring unfolding here in Cornwall and the fun of the farm on a winter holiday, but I rarely come back to our holiday accommodation. We have just 11 properties here at Coombe Mill, each of which are bespoke mixes of old and new cottages and contemporary Scandinavian style lodges. This past week I have been updating the website photos inside our earliest 2 bedroom lodge, Trebah. I thought I’d share a selection of the photos here too.
The wood interior darkens over time, and as we constantly replace furnishings, keeping photos up to date as a true representation of our properties is important. Like all our lodges Trebah is named after a famous Cornish attraction. Trebah Gardens are set in a beautiful sub tropical location much like the hamlet that forms Coombe Mill and it felt like an obvious name choice having visited the gardens. Over the years our very own Trebah has grown into its name.
As the addition of Trevarno and most recently Polzeath have since been built based on the successful layout of Trebah, I felt it was time to return to our original two bedroom property and give it a little focus. My style of photography has moved on since 2010 when Trebah was built as has my camera quality. Gone are the old over staged grainy photos to be replaced by these new, more simplistic and representative images. Hopefully any prospective family of four looking to book will be able to picture themselves relaxing into a holiday here in this comfortable and very practical holiday lodge.
Looking at Trebah holiday lodge from dining area through to lounge.
Compact kitchen with every home from home appliance included.
Simple and stylish furnishings with feature woodburner.
Super King bedroom En-suite with space for a cot.
Upstairs is just a giant playroom. Stair gates are built in.
The outside photos also need an update on the website but I’m waiting for spring to fully show it’s hand before updating these.
