The Cottage description

The Cottage is a detached, 200-year-old Cornish mining property, close to the owner’s home, set off the road and accessed via a short, private, unmade lane. It is full of Cornish character, with thick stone walls, wood burners and low beamed ceilings. The Cottage is entered via a small pedestrian gate leading into the gorgeous landscaped garden. Two pillars lead to the entrance door, and inside is a spacious dining room and kitchen with bespoke, period-style units with a mix of wood and granite work tops, traditional quarry tiled floor, a Belfast sink and two sky lights allowing plenty of natural light. Outdoors there is a pretty Delabole slate patio, lawn, pond and orchard, and is an ideal spot in which to unwind in the evening sun following a day exploring.
The setting is quiet and within easy reach of the rugged north coast, popular with coastal walkers and surfers. This is a great spot to explore this delightful corner of Cornwall, just minutes from the sandy beach and seaside town of Portreath, the famous Godrevy Lighthouse sitting on its rocky outcrop leading to the long expanse of sand dunes, and white sandy beaches at Gwithian and Hayle. Nearby is Tehidy Country Park and Golf Course which offers cycle trails, woodland, lakes and a small cafe. Just a short drive away is St Ives, Penzance and Hayle, all with shops, restaurants, cafes and art galleries. Take the scenic coastal train from St Erth into St Ives, passing beautiful beaches en route. Beach 2 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant 2 mles.
