We are extremely proud that The Mariners has received the award for Best Pub at this year’s GQ Food & Drink Award. The Mariners were extremely please to have been selected from such highly revered and respected competition. When Paul and Emma took over the pub in March 2019 they created a special place for locals and visitors to visit. Paul & Emma said ‘We poured our hearts and souls into The Mariners, and it has well and truly paid off. To gain such prestigious recognition means the world to us, and we cannot thank @britishgq enough for awarding us this accolade. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And thank you to all our customers for your amazing support. We couldn’t do it without you. With love from the Mariners Team, and the whole Ainsworth Family’

Trevose Golf and Country Club is an ideal place to stay, play and dine in Cornwall: located on the Trevose Head Heritage Coast, only a short distance from the beautiful Padstow and the Seven Bays, they provide an array of activities and accommodation, in addition to their famous seaside golf course.

Golf Galore!

Quite arguably the main draw of Trevose is their gorgeous set of coastal golf courses:

The Championship Course – with all 18 holes laid out in front of you, the sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean will take your breath away. In keeping with most Colt designs the course is set out in two loops of 9 holes. The front 9 holes hug the sand dunes and coastline, offering some spectacular views out to sea. The back 9 holes offer a different, but no less demanding, test of golf as you head inland and then back towards the clubhouse.

The Headland Course – Whether you’re an experienced golfer looking to fine tune your game, less experienced (intermediate level) but looking to improve your skills or simply looking for a course to try out some new tips picked up from the Professional then this course is for you. Measuring a little over 3,000 yards the course winds its way out to Trevose Head, opening up one of the most picturesque views you are ever likely to find on a golf course.

The Short Course – Set in and around the ruins of the Chapel of St Constantine (dating back to C15) the Short Course provides an excellent test of golf for beginners and juniors and, equally, for the seasoned golfer wanting to brush up on their short game. Each hole provides its own unique challenge, and it’s the perfect place to try out new shots, fine tune your skills or put in to practice the lessons learnt from the teaching Professionals. This course has something for everyone and if you’re embarking on your maiden golfing experience you will find it enormous fun.

There is something for everyone at Trevose- whether you are a seasoned player, or just a beginner, the 3 courses are bound to impress! And if you don’t want to lug around your equipment around the county, have no fear! Trevose offers hireable sets of golf clubs, motor caddys and electric buggys for all of your golf-related needs. While there, why not take advantage of their Performance Centre: a high tech, modern practice facility, complete with the latest Trackman launch monitor, GASP video analysis system, 8 covered practice bays and an onsite custom club fitting service!

…And much more!

Golf isn’t the only attraction at Trevose Country Club, as they offer a wide range of activities and facilities to partake in!

Treat yourself at the wonderful Massage & Beauty Salon – Take some time to relax and unwind whilst on holiday at Trevose. They provide a variety of massages, from deep tissue to aromatherapy, as well as a number of beauty treatments including facials, mani/pedicures and waxing. For those looking for the ultimate in relaxation, why not try their Reflexology Treatment, designed to help all of your body’s natural systems.

Get outside and play – Apart from their golf courses, Trevose is also home to a swimming pool that is located in close proximity to the Clubhouse. It comes complete with on site changing facilities and a spacious outside area to relax, sunbathe or simply unwind. The pool is heated and is open from mid May until mid September (weather permitting), with a pool attendant on duty at all times. They also have a number of high-quality tennis courts available for hire year-round!

Stay and dine – If you want the Atlantic Ocean practically on your doorstep, then the Trevose Golf and Country Club cottages and apartments are for you! Imagine waking up to the sound of crashing waves, sea gulls singing and the cleansing scent of fresh Cornish sea air. Every effort has been made to ensure the accommodation will provide you with a comfortable and relaxing stay. Catering for groups of between 2 to 6 persons, they have a range of accommodation types to suit all budgets. Also on-site is Constantine- the club’s gourmet restaurant: with stunning views out over the Atlantic, Constantine aims to deliver quality local seafood, meat and produce fresh to your plate. All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the sights of local fishermen working their pots in the distance as the waves roll in to Constantine and Booby’s Bays in the distance.

Congratulations to Trevibban Mill who have received a silver medal for their 2014 Blanc De Blancs at the @winegb prestigious competition – one of only two White Sparkling wines to achieve this in Cornwall! They also have a Gold award for their Orion, and this was the comment from the judge: ‘There were a huge number of really impressive still wines this year too, especially from the 2018 vintage and of those there were none more exciting for me than gold medal winning @trevibbanmill_vineyard Skin Contact Orion, just the sort of ambitious, complex, natural wine we should be making more of in this country. Heavy scented and multi-layered brilliance.’
