About Us

Did you know that our castle sits within a 72 acre resort? That's a lot of space to run around! Surrounding the castle we call home, you can find mysterious woodland, manicured lawns, and a fantastic par 3 18 hole golf course. But above everything else, the best bit is definitely the view over St Ives Bay. Want to know more? Take a look below.

Relax with a treatment in Castle Beauty, spend quality time together exploring the estate, or get stuck in with family activities on the beach which is just a stone's throw from the castle.

We could not be happier to call St Ives our home. From the soft golden sand of picture-perfect beaches to a whole host of delicious local food and fantastic shopping, this beautiful seaside town is an incredible destination for any getaway. Art galleries, theatres, restaurants, and breathtaking views abound. Plan your stay ahead of time.

Our history

Tregenna Castle has been a home from home for the discerning traveller for over 240 years. Now a 84 bedroomed castle with a beautiful 72 acre estate overlooking the Bay, Tregenna has come a long way since its humble 12-bedroom beginnings. Take a step back to a time where Tregenna was nothing more than a private home for a man with a love of the seaside.


We pride ourselves on our warm welcome, friendly service, and stunning location. It's always a thrill to be nominated for awards, and when we win, the energy and excitement from the whole team is incredible.

We really can't explain how grateful we are. We couldn't have done all of this without you, so whether you've cast votes, suggested us for nomination, or simply stayed with us that one time - thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
