About the employer

Country estates are part of England’s rich heritage and Wyndham Trenython Manor is an architectural treasure, built in 1872 within the grounds of a private 24-acre estate. The elegant manor house has been lovingly restored and sympathetically converted to a hotel and luxury lodge resort, and many of its historic features, including intricately carved oak panelling, sweeping staircases, decorative ceilings and marble columns, have been carefully preserved. Today guests enjoy the highest level of modern comfort and an array of superb facilities designed to entertain all the family during a short break, spa weekend or longer holiday in Cornwall. Outdoors boasts a variety of woodland, beds, borders and trees to relax and enjoy the space in.
