About Trebarwith Stonewoks

Trebarwith Stoneworks is situated at the old Prince of Wales Quarry near Tintagel. Slate mining along the North Cornwall coast dates back to the early 1400s. Mining developed along coastal areas where the slate bedrock is exposed or closer to the surface and sea transport was the way to transport the heavy slate.

There were eight known quarries in the Trebarwith area. The Prince of Wales Quarry was one of the largest and particularly remarkable in that in its later years it was worked by a Wolf Compound Beam Engine. The deep pit section of the quarry was abandoned around 1880 but up until thirty years ago forty-five men were mining slate on this site. Today Trebarwith Stoneworks specialises in producing and fitting quality granite, quartz, marble and slate kitchen worktops and bathroom surfaces using stone from around the world. We supply a complete service, consulting on design, templating, delivery and fitting.

Natural stone is unlike any man-made product. Every piece of stone has its own unique personality, unique markings and touch, giving a totally individual finish.
Available in a wide range of colours to meet each individual design, granite not only looks marvellous, it provides a long lasting, scratch resistant, durable surface.
The lustre of quartz, similar to granite in its durability, is making this stone an increasingly popular and fashionable choice. Silestone is the only brand that contains a unique bacteriostatic formula based on the use of latest generation silver ions to prevent the propagation of bacteria and secure hygiene.

Marble has its own special quality and feel and is particularly popular for use in bathrooms with its cool and clean appearance.
Slate provides a cheaper option for kitchen worktops but is more vulnerable to scratching. It is, however, a great choice for hearths and window cills and is often a good choice, when renovating older properties, helping to keep the rustic feel.
