Trenowth is a scattered hamlet set in the rolling countryside on the south eastern side of Bodmin Moor. The house stands surrounded by Trenowth Wood, which runs down to the upper reaches of the River Fal. It is designated as an area of Great Landscape Value and is in a central position between the north and south coasts with their varied interest of beaches, rocky cliffs and sheltered creeks.
