Trelay Co-Housing Community


Trelay Cohousing is a vibrant community of 22 adults and 10 children, established in 2007 at Trelay Farm.

  • The farm is a 32-acre smallholding near Bude in North Cornwall in the United Kingdom, two miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
  • We look after animals such as cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and bees.
  • We tend to growing projects, including an extensive veg patch, greenhouses, a polytunnel, and a forest garden
  • We help each other to grow, listen and connect.
  • The community aims to provide a rewarding and satisfying lifestyle to each of its members. We follow our passions and blur the boundaries between work and fun. We are learning to live together, co-sufficiently, and in harmony with nature and each other
  • We live in various buildings, including retrofitted farm buildings and new structures

We have opportunities for new members: a one-bedroom unit and a three-bedroom house are available now, and a further three-bedroom property will become available shortly.

Our Next Interest event 21st October 2023. See our website for more information
