Our aspiration is to offer our guests a warm welcome, impeccable service and a mouthwatering breakfast. Combined with a coastal setting and whispers of retro and mid-century style, Trevose Harbour House offers something unique and is the ideal place to relax, unwind and explore all that Cornwall has to offer.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Angela, born into a family of hoteliers, has lived and worked in hotels all of her life. Olivier, found his vocation for hospitality by working in restaurants and bars following college. Having decided to pursue a career within the industry, Olivier chose to study hotel management.
This is where we met, 20 years ago, at the world renowned Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland. Following our studies, we pursued our respective professional careers within the sector by working in some of Europe’s leading hotels. We had always harboured the dream of one day owning our own small boutique guest house. So, in 2012, we decided to put our combined knowledge and skills to the benefit of a personal project. Trevose Harbour House is the fruit of our passion and a reflection of the kind of place we like to stay in. A living place which is understated yet uniquely stylish offering high standards of service in a relaxed and comfortable way.
Here at Trevose Harbour House we are incredibly sensitive in continually prioritising the importance of sustainability within the business. We uphold a strict ethos and are very proud to work alongside respected organisations to source locally, reduce, reuse and recycle products and support the local community. You can read a little bit more about what we do to assist below;
PASSION FOR PRODUCE
Where possible we will endeavour to source organically through local produce to support sustainable farming. Thus ensures that only the freshest and finest ingredients make it to your breakfast table, keeping food miles as low as possible. Because we respect our produce and the planet, we also champion an ethical approach to cooking by limiting wastage and recycling packaging.
PASSION FOR PRODUCT
Most of what you see in the house is either upcycled or recycled and besides the added benefit of sustainability, we think the furniture brings something unique and extra special to Trevose Harbour House! Both our cleaning products and in-room amenities are eco- friendly and all our print material is done with eco-inks on recycled paper.
PASSION FOR PEOPLE
At Trevose Harbour House we believe that sustainability doesn’t stop at what we source. We believe it is also vital to support the local economy and community, from the people we employ to local charities. We know that we have a long way to go over the next few years and hope to support some noteworthy projects and to gain some accreditations.

ART AT TREVOSE
Trevose Harbour House features neighbourhood artwork sourced from local St Ives artists. The well illuminated white walls of the house offer the perfect backdrop to showcase the carefully selected pieces of art and pottery. Following the guesthouses’ serene and calming tone, the artwork similarly is in keeping with the white and blue colour scheme. We are currently featuring the below artists. For information on the artist, prices or their gallery feel free to ask us.
