The Cottage description

The Cottage is a delightful secret hideaway, and is situated just 2 miles from Portreath and the rugged North Cornwall Coastline, the perfect, peaceful location for guests looking to explore the north, south and west of Cornwall. This holiday home will appeal to families, friends and couples alike, whatever the season. Enjoy alfresco dining in the enclosed garden during the summer and cosy evenings in front of the wood burner in the winter months. This 200-year-old property is full of character and is the perfect base from which to explore stunning beaches and seaside towns. Convenient for the main A30 means guests can explore this beautiful county with ease and return to the exquisite tranquil gardens to relax.
The Cottage is a detached, 200-year-old Cornish mining property, 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’s a pretty sheltered Delabole slate patio, large lawn, small pond and orchard, the ideal spot in which to unwind in the evening sun following a day exploring.
The setting is quiet yet 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 proudly 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 on route. Beach 2 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant 2 miles.
