Further details indoors

The house is heated by storage heaters in every room and there is a woodburner in the sitting room. The second reception room is a very useful and attractive study or 'quiet room'; it includes a small but growing 'library' about the area. The woodburning stove in this room is presently for decoration only. The cottage is also a showcase for paintings and prints by artists famously of the area...some of which are for sale. The dining room, running on from the kitchen, features the original antique Cornish range which is beautiful but purely decorative.

The beds in the twin room can link together to make a large double bed if desired but we would need to know in advance. The travel cot stored beneath the double bed in bedroom two. Full instructions for the immersion are in the airing cupboard.

This is an old cottage and the beams in the single room slope down to the windows; the kitchen/dining room also has a low beamed ceiling. (5'11").

There are sea views from every window.

Further details outdoors

There is 'understood' parking for one vehicle in front of the cottage on Levant Road and private off-road parking for one small car at the rear of the property, with access from Trewellard Lane. The utility room is housed in the granite building in the back yard/garden, with separate washing machine and dryer and a stainless steel sink for handwashing. Guests will also find the BBQ and a fireguard, for the woodburner in the sitting room, for the protection of small children. There is also a loo next door with wash basin.

There is a picnic table to the rear of the property which catches the morning sun and there are two benches in the front garden which enjoy the rest of day's sunshine including a view of the Scilly Isles on a clear day.

Further details

A £50 deposit will be requested with every booking with the balance to be paid three weeks before the start of the holiday.

About this location

The Cornwall region

The cottage is situated in Penwith on the beautiful north coast of far west Cornwall in an old tin mining area. It is within easy reach of St Just, Penzance, St Ives and the many beautiful beaches and coves that describe the Peninsula coast. The climate in this area is 2 to 3 degrees higher than average. There are so many places of interest, just a few of which include outstanding National Trust properties, the famous outdoor Minack Theatre on the cliffs above Porthcurno beach, the fishing port of Newlyn, Lands End and numerous unspoilt little towns, villages and hamlets. The countryside is varied and beautiful and very redolent of the area - there is a notable difference between the gentle, more sheltered South coast and the dramatic North coast.

The area is rich in prehistoric and Iron Age settlements and picturesqe cross country and stunning cliff top walks.

Penwith is famous for its artists and its many notable galleries, including the Tate in St Ives.


Trewellard and Pendeen are old tin mining villages and very well appointed, with a shop that sells most things, two very contrasting restaurants and three pubs - the Trewellard Arms is a very brief walk from the cottage and boasts a wonderful menu and excellent local beers. The welcome is always very warm. It is only three miles from the most westerly town in Cornwall, St Just. Grenfells is just a walk from Levant Mine overlooking the sea. The National Trust is responsible for firing the huge Beam Engine several times a week. Less than a mile down the main North Coast road is the famous Geevor Mine, now a heritage museum. Pendeen Lighthouse is just a little further on.

The area is famous for its Festivals. The culteral calendar of Cornwall is punctuated by numerous historic and community festivals and celebrations. In particular there are strong links between parishes and their patronal feast days, especially in this part of Cornwall. There is also a tradition of holding celebrations associated with tin mining and fishing...and music, dance music and poetry as Penzance's Mazey Day, preceded by Golowan week. August Bank Holiday sees the Newlyn Fish Festival. These are just a couple of examples; the area is rich in Saints' days. Finally, it is important to mention the St. Ives Festival; a major event of art, literature and music that takes place every September

"A lovely cottage in a beautiful location"

A truly lovely period themed cottage in the beautiful surrounding location made our stay a wonderful experience. The cottage itself with all it's traditional fixtures and furnishings gave the whole experience a very warm and inviting feel, and to couple this with sea views and location within the village makes a very relaxing holiday.

"Excellent, relaxing and very cosy stay!"

The cottage is fantastic, very relaxing location and excellent for walking the cliffs with spectacular views. Very clean and tidy, but has everything you need for a home from home stay,the kitchen has all the bits needed to cook for a family. A lovely touch is the welcome pack and bottles of wine, also gift vouchers for local restaurants,cafes and pubs. The only problem was we didn't want to leave the cottage to go for meals, after our long walks it was just nice to sit in front of the real! Overall our family really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. Lisa & George
