Trelay is a small cohousing community in North Cornwall. It is a wonderful place to live! We currently have nearly 20 residents but some are moving on, so soon there will be spaces available. We each have our own private living space and there are several community buildings and 30 acres of land, and we aim towards environmental, social and financial sustainability.
Trelay is set in a beautiful location with sea views. There are wild flowers and butterflies in profusion. The peace and quiet, the ravens and buzzards, starry skies and occasional gales stir the spirit.
We have fruit-growing areas, a large communal vegetable patch and other plots where people grow food. Individuals, couples or small groups take responsibility for animals in some of the communal fields. We have two acres of woodland and a shared log store. Trelay has a private sewage system which is being developed into a series of reedbeds. There is a small PV roof and more renewable energy projects are under discussion.
We really enjoy living here and have lots of fun together. We have many ideas for new projects too, which will involve some hard work! Would you like to come and join in with our lifestyle?
Please explore our website and find out more about our life at Trelay, our visions and plans, and the opportunities for you to come and live with us or to visit us.
