Rosamunde Pilcher

Trewithen has been used as a location for a number of films and TV productions

With a writing career spanning over 60 years, Rosamunde Pilcher is an internationally renowned author and one of Cornwall’s literary greats.

Born in 1924 in Lelant, her childhood home has inspired many of the novels she is now so famous for – many of which have subsequently been adapted into various TV series’ and films, with filming taking place at various locations throughout the county.

Trewithen has been used as a film location for two Rosamunde Pilcher films.  The interior of the House was featured in ‘The Blossom of Life’ in 1999 and the entire façade of the south side of the house was changed to look like the front as a location for ‘Amazing Grace’ in 2005.
