Treneere is a residential council estate on the outskirts of Penzance, Cornwall, built in the 1930s. Most of the housing within this area is owned and operated by Penwith Housing Association. Treneere falls within the Penzance East Ward of Cornwall Council and is largely responsible for the high score the ward receives on the UK government's index of deprivation.

Treneere takes its name from the nearby manor of Treneere which until the 1930s was the principal landowner in the area. Treneere Manor was originally one of the bartons of the Manor of Alverton. Treneere Manor is a Grade II* listed small mansion built in 1758. It is now owned by Truro and Penwith College to accommodate the Penwith campus administration.
