Why choose self-catering?

The beauty of self-catering is the freedom it allows you to enjoy the full range of facilities at Tregenna Castle Resort, while you set your own agenda. Eat in or out, spend the whole day on the estate or venture out to explore without being limited by mealtimes. Tucked away around the 72 acre estate, Tregenna has a choice of 70 self-catering properties at St Ives, Cornwall. From intimate single bedroom apartments to five star luxury self-catering lodges, so you'll be spoilt for choice.

Our guests look for different things when making their choice of Cornish self-catering property. Depending on the numbers in their party, accessibility, length of stay and a variety of other factors, we have options to suit you. Tregenna Castle Resort’s self-catering accommodation includes cottages, lodges, coach houses and apartments, providing you with plenty of choice and flexibility when choosing your family holiday home in Cornwall. Here are our three favourite things that a self-catering holiday in Cornwall provides.

The best of both worlds at Tregenna

When you’re staying in our self-catering homes near St Ives, you will have full access to all our hotel facilities, including the Brasserie, swimming pools, tennis courts, Castle Kids club and golf course (charges apply). You’ll have the privacy of your own property to come and go as you please. Self-catering properties are ideal for families, especially those with younger children who want plenty of space for the little ones to roam around, take naps when needed, and enjoy meals at times to suit you.

You’re in charge of your St Ives holiday

Once you’ve selected one of our luxury self-catering properties, you can relax and be sure that it’s yours for the duration of your stay. Now, St Ives and the whole of Cornwall are at your disposal, to do as you please. You can anticipate exploring the natural beauty of Cornwall, returning late after watching the sunset from Porthmeor Beach. Or spend the day locally in St Ives, wandering back with sand in your shoes, to your own front door. With no routine to stick to and no reception desk to check in with, it’s time to look forward to your family holiday in Cornwall and enjoy life in St Ives at your own pace.

Freedom and flexibility

Stay out as late as you want, sleep in all day, and live your time here with us entirely at your leisure. Self-catering properties provide the ultimate holiday luxuries – freedom and flexibility. Eat whatever you want, whenever you want to. The kitchens come fully-equipped with everything you need to store, prepare and cook a delicious meal for everyone in the family to enjoy. If you don’t feel like cooking, you can simply order from Chef’s takeaway menu, or visit our Brasserie Restaurant. Wake up each day to the adventure of freedom and flexibility in one of our 70 self-catering properties.
