Trelay is a small co-housing community in North Cornwall. The land stretches over 32 beautiful acres of woodland, streams, fields, vegetable patches and gardens with the Cornish coastline framed by the Valley.
Trelay farm is a Cohousing Community in Crackington Haven, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Holiday Cottages and Yurts. Trelay is situated in rolling countryside with views along a wooded valley to the sea. There is a profusion of wild flowers and wildlife in the farm’s woodland and tree-lined banks. It is a working small-holding surrounded by it’s own 32 acres of land, with lots to see including pigs, chickens, cows, sheep and various renewable energy projects. The farm grows fruit and vegetables following sustainable and organic principles.
Trelay Farm offers quality self-catering accommodation in 5 cottages and 2 lovely yurts. Please see the specific page from the drop-down menu for pictures, prices and availability of each individual cottage.

Cohousing is a way of living which consciously brings individuals and families together to share common aims and activities, while also enjoying their own self-contained accommodation and personal space. Communities are a means of compensating for the alienating effects of modern life, where neighbours don’t recognise each other and where day-to-day collaboration is minimal. They offer particular benefits for children in terms of secure play-space and shared activities with their peers. Older people can also find companionship and mutual support.
