Tregony Accommodation | Restaurants | Pubs
Tregony is located on the Roseland Peninsula and is Known as the gateway to the Roseland Peninsula. It is quite popular with tourists and holiday makers, but is more a commuter town, being a short distance from the County Town of Truro and the historic town of St Austell. The village has just one Pub, the Kings Arms, although another good pub can be found not far away in Ruan Lanihorne, The Kings Head.
Tregony used to be a bustling small port with access for boats up the Tregony River, however the river has long since silted up and its no longer possible to navigate it with anything more than a canoe! The main trade in Roman times was of course Tin and then in more recent centuries there were a number of woollen mills producing the Tregony Cloth.
Tregony is surrounded by open fields, farmland and woods and is an excellent area for inland country walks and hiking and the nearby marshes at Ruan Lanihorne is a popular place for bird watchers. There is also a back road to Truro through the woods which makes for an interesting journey although the road does get a little tight in places.
For the holiday maker there are a number of self catering cottages in and around Tregony, as well as self catering accommodation in nearby villages such as Portloe, Veryan, Portscatho and further towards the end of the Roseland Peninsula, St Mawes.
There are a handfull of Bed and Breakfasts in Tregony , the most popular being the new Kea House Bed and Breakfast along the main street. Kea house also has a restaurant serving excellent food using local produce.
Tregony is very centrally located. and is a good starting point from which to explore the Roseland Peninsula and other areas of Cornwall.
