Meet the Team – Rachel & Sam
Rachel and Sam live in nearby town Wadebridge, and are on-site daily to ensure the smooth-running of both the farm and the properties.
As Sam works on the farm, he is happy to arrange tours where you can meet all the animals, including our chickens which provide the eggs for the welcome hampers.
Having grown up in the area, Sam has all the best local contacts and can help organise extra activities including water-sports and horse riding. The couple can also coordinate breakfast and VIP dinner experiences at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, subject to availability.
Originally from the westcountry, Rachel’s parents took great care in designing and developing the beautiful retreats. The whole family are passionate about everything the local area has to offer, and are excited for you to make wonderful holiday memories at Trevear Farm.
A small piece of history
Trevear Farm has been in existence since 1669, originally called Treveor Farm.
One of the best known stories at the farm is a scandalous liaison between St Issey local Thomas Trevethan (1826-1901), and a member of the well-respected family that lived at the farm – Elizabeth Veall. Despite being married, he used to sneak in through the dairy window of the farm house to be with her. When the affair was uncovered, it was so shocking that some of Thomas’ brothers felt it necessary to emigrate! Thomas built a pair of houses in the nearby village of St Issey, one for him and his family, and one for Elizabeth with a connecting door. Elizabeth is buried in St Issey churchyard, and her gravestone reads ‘She has done what she could’.
