Social distancing Treworgey Cottages

If you can drag yourself away from a warm fire, good novel and mug of hot tea in your cottage, there are various events happening in Treworgey's local area this winter. 

This is our hand-picked guide for things in our area - we've even put driving times from Treworgey after each event.  Enjoy!

*UPDATE* - we have added loads of events for February half-term (on 11/2/20).  Scroll down for the new, much bigger Feb guide!

We're currently working on our spring guide (March - May).  We'll post the link on Facebook and Instagram when it's ready.
