Trebeslin was a small working farm, parts of which go back about 400 years. Over the course of time it had bits added on but still remained a small family farm. When we bought it in the early 1990's it had been standing empty for about 6 years and was generally in a pretty sorry state. It's now been totally renovated, the present living space being created by knocking 2 cottages and a stable together to make the home we now have. The original dairy is now the garage and the remaining buildings and barn have all been renovated and provide much needed additional storage and parking spaces. We've tried to provide a modern, comfortable living area whilst still retaining the traditional character of the place. Some of the original beams are massive and makes us wonder how on earth they were hoisted into place - all the rooms have exposed beams.
1991 - end en-suite room
There was no upstairs in the house, it was just an open grenier for grain/hay storage!
