Trethewey (Cornish: Tredhewi) is a hamlet in west Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It forms part of St Levan civil parish. The village includes a Wesleyan chapel and schoolroom, built in 1868.
Trethewey lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park.
The first records of the name may be preserved in the "Calendar of inquisitions post mortem and other analogous documents preserved in the Public Record Office (1904)"which contains a probate inquiry as to the birthdate of 11 September 1296 and the birthplace of Treguwal of Roger Bloyou, although it may be the name of a different or extinct village.
