The unique sense of place experienced at Trevenna is a constant thread in our history. During the approach and overwhelmingly on arrival, everyone visiting Trevenna is greeted with exceptional 360 degree views of Cornwall. This naturally calming & reassuring Cornish location provides the backcloth to Trevenna’s story.
The 142 acres of Trevenna Farm land have been in the same family for 100s of years. In true Cornish style, we diversified! Staying true to our farming heritage, food and sitting around the farm house table together remains central to everything we do.

Raising Funds & Being Involved
Every year Team Trevenna do our bit to raise funds for local charities.
Little Harbour Children’s Hospice
Until a few years ago, terminally sick Cornish children would travel 100s of miles for respite care. As a result of an enormous countywide initiative a brand new centre, the Little Harbour Children’s Hospice was built and opened. Trevenna raised over 5,000 through a Charity Dinner & Auction towards building of the hospice. See www.chsw.org.uk/little-harbour
Cornwall Air Ambulance
Cornwall presents some unique challenges in the provision of emergency medical care. The widely scattered population, rugged landscape, isolated rural communities, secluded beaches and poor road network can make the use of land ambulances difficult. Cornwall Air Ambulance is on duty 365 days a year, delivering fast, effective medical care to patients in their time of need, wherever they are in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

ShelterBox was started in Cornwall to provide emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis. ShelterBox deliver the essentials people need to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of a disaster. ShelterBox aid is tailored to a disaster but typically includes a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children’s activity pack.
