The history of the house

The oldest part of the house is believed to be over 300 years old and was once a home for one of the local mining captains. It was also the birth place of John Trevisa in 1342, he was a native Cornish speaker, Writer and Translator. Lucy grew up in Cornwall and after travelling around and moving about, she and her husband wanted to bring their family up close to family and by the sea. We stumbled across the house in 2016 and have called it home ever since. As a family, we split our time between Cornwall and Lisbon and feel very grateful to call Trevessa our home.
