The house was built by a Cornish family, with locally quarried slate and stone, about 120 years ago and was transformed into an entirely vegetarian/vegan guest house in 1995. Vanessa and Simon Lackford took over the guest house in 2004. Whilst the family house character remains largely unaltered, it now provides good sized guest rooms. All rooms are comfortably furnished and have relaxing views towards the sea. There are facilities in each room to make drinks - these are mainly fair trade.
There are two patio areas available for the use of guests, both with views towards the sea, and the sitting room, with TV, is also for guest use at all times.
People with limited mobility may find the situation of the house, on a steep hillside, problematic.
Michael House is in the picture at the base of each page of this website. It is to the right of the picture, the left hand house of the pair of semidetached white properties.
This room has views to the front, towards the sea and the valley above Trebarwith Strand. The room can be made up with either a super king size bed or as a twin room with two beds. The bathroom, with a full size bath with sea glimpses, has a hand held shower over it. The room is spacious and has a table and chairs looking towards the view.
Has a standard double bed and a large bathroom, with both a full size bath and a separate walk-in shower. There are views in three directions, to the front towards the sea, to the side over Treknow hamlet and to the back, over fields. This room is also spacious, and can readily accommodate a fold up bed or cot.
Pictures of rooms in the house can be found in the sidebar of the Michael House Blog
