Trevassack on TV – Sunshine Getaways on Channel 5

It was a normal day at Trevassack Lake for holidays. The sun was shining, the cafe was serving delicious coffees to our guests and visitors, a few people took to the water… Oh, and a small group of celebrities turned up to film a new television show!

Sunshine Getaways with Amanda Lamb

We were extremely professional in our excitement, of course. Polite conversation being made with A Place in the Sun star, Amanda Lamb, soon turned into fun and laughter as inhibitions around the cameras slipped away and the true spirit of our staff and accommodation shone through – as did the sun! Lucky, really, as the programme being shown on Channel 5 (Wednesday 17th January, 2024 at 6pm) is called Sunshine Getaways, and our very own Calcite Cabin was showcased as a fabulous getaway on the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall.

Calcite Cabin on Channel 5

It’s a great holiday home for anyone looking for a tucked away location with amazing views, private hot tub, on site facilities and close proximity to some of the best beaches and coves in the South West. Anyone is welcome here, no matter your age or ability, or even number of legs – we’ve dog-friendly places to stay, too.

Calcite Cabin is a quirky, luxury self-catering place to stay (and sunshine getaway!) perched metres from the edge of 10 acre freshwater Trevassack Lake near Helston. Stay here for a quiet retreat just the two of you (watersports optional!) and enjoy a hot tub under the stars, or bring family or friends for a fun adventure holiday, with lots and lots of getting wet!

The cabins are each cleverly converted from two large shipping containers, creating a spacious open plan living space with large wet-room. Every property has its own hot tub inset into the huge deck, perfect for al fresco breakfasts before the day’s adventures and retiring into bubbly heaven of an evening.

Holiday on the Lizard, Cornwall

The bonus of Trevassack is the entire site is fully accessible, so no matter your situation, you can enjoy time away from the mundane home routine in comfort and safety. As one of our wheelchair-using guests, who stayed in Bradbury House, remarked, ‘I don’t feel disabled here’. Mission accomplished.

Fancy a getaway in Cornwall? Check our live availability calendars – we just can’t promise you’ll see any celebrities!
