Trelay Cohousing is a vibrant community of twenty-two adults and nine children, established in 2007 at Trelay Farm.

The farm has thirty-two acres of land and is near Bude in North Cornwall in the United Kingdom, two miles from the Atlantic Ocean.

Trelay is a rural retrofit cohousing scheme and an educational facility welcoming hundreds of visitors. Our buildings include old stone buildings insulated and refurbished; and new buildings, built to a high standard.

The community aims to provide a rewarding and satisfying lifestyle to each of its members. We work hard but we also have fun.

We are becoming an inspiration to people who wish to live lightly on the planet as we learn to live together happily, co-sufficiently, in harmony with nature.
