About the Great Trethew Vintage Rally
Situated in the sleepy hamlet of Horningtops, south of Liskeard at Bylane End rests the location for the atmospheric Vintage Rally of Great Trethew. The annual rally is held over the August bank holiday weekend and offers a great selection of displays, demonstrations, live music, and children’s entertainment.
This local rally continues to improve year-on-year as the organisers are continually seeking larger selections of attractions for all the family.
In past years the rally has provided visitors with a village fête atmosphere showcasing vintage tractors, cars, motorcycles, commercial and military vehicles. Along with, of course, Stationary Engines, Full-Size and Miniature Steam Engines plus an assortment of other family-friendly attractions. In 2018 the rally included a dog show and tractor pulling.
Great Trethew Vintage Rally
The Great Trethew Vintage Rally is a well organised, well-attended event drawing crowds from near and far. The rally was initiated by the organisers in 2018 and improves with each passing year. If only the weather did the same thing!
Entry To The Rally
The rally runs from 9.00am in the morning until 11 o’clock at night. Exhibitors and traders may apply through the rally’s official website by downloading the available application forms.
Somewhere to Stay in Cornwall
There are quite a few places to stay around the rally including Great Trethew Manor Hotel and Polgover Farm just up the road. Or for something a little less adventurous the Premier Inn in Liskeard just 10 minutes away. If it’s camping you are after try the Penbugle Organic Farm Glamping and Campsite in St. Keyne a few miles to the west. Be sure to book well in advance as this is the August bank holiday weekend.
Getting To Great Trethew
Getting to the rally couldn’t be easier, just get onto the A38 from Saltash, if travelling from the east, or from Bodmin, travelling from the west. Turn off the A38 onto the B3251 towards Looe, Sandplace and Widegates and the rally site is on your left-hand side after about 1 mile.
Other Things To Do Around Liskeard
Check out the Moyclare Cornish Garden, Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary, and Sclerder Abbey all within easy driving distance. Head to Polperro Model Village a little further to the south on the coast. For those of you needing an adrenaline rush try the Adrenaline Quarry Ltd’s zip line on Lower Clicker Road, just north of the A38.
