Spacious, semi-detached cottage on a hill at the end of a farm track. A quiet retreat in a beautiful, rural location on the edge of the moor, surrounded by open countryside, chickens, cows and horses while swallows and sparrows nest around the cottage.

The front door opens onto a large, private south facing garden making the cottage perfect for children and dogs. The location is exceptionally peaceful and there are far reaching views across the valley to the sea from the upper windows and part of the garden. The area is home to cows, horses, ponies, pipistrelle bats, swallows, kestrels, badgers, foxes, rabbits, an occasional deer and the odd stray pig!

The garden has ample seating and a large barbecue and there is space to pitch tents. The sitting room features an inglenook fireplace, a large wood burning stove and a piano. There is a huge dining table in the kitchen and firewood and eggs can be bought locally. There are three double bedrooms and a small double or large single sofabed in the sitting room.

Well behaved dogs are welcome as there is livestock in surrounding fields and chickens and other dogs in the immediate vicinity.

The Star Inn, at the end of the lane, has a shop, a library and wifi and is thriving under the new landlord. There is private parking area for two small or one large car by the garden and further space close to the cottage.

The Cornwall region

Porkellis is a small village in the heart of the Wendron Mining District, part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. It was one of the earliest worked mines in Cornwall and large engine house stands by the road leading up to the village. At the bottom of the road is the Poldark Mine which offers daily tours and also close by is the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek.

The Lizard Peninsula, with its quiet and beautiful beaches, is a short distance while for surfers the North Coast is also easily accessible. There is a dog ban from Easter Day until the end of Summer but one of the nearest beaches at Gunwalloe allows dogs all year round. There are surf schools at Porthtowan and Gwithian, and if you walk past the Godrevy lighthouse at low tide you will come to a seal colony.

There are riding schools at Wheal Buller and on the Lizard and there is a large Watersports Centre at Stithians Reservoir where you can sail and windsurf. Wendron is excellent walking country and guidebooks in the cottage detail local walks. Falmouth provides boats, fishing trips and nightlife, while Porthleven Harbour has waterside pubs, seafood restaurants, great fish and chips and a fresh crab stall. The nearest surfing school is Tris Surf at Porthtowan Beach while a further trip to Gwithian might give you a chance to see the seal colony.

The Star Inn at Porkellis is a couple of minutes walk from the cottage and, in my opinion, serves the best home cooked food in Cornwall- and i am fussy!


Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula in the vast Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly promontory, The Lizard, and one of the UK's most westerly points, Land's End, while a few miles off shore and even further west is an archipelago of tiny islands that make up the Isles of Scilly.

The Gulf Stream, bringing warm air from the Caribbean north-east toward Europe, makes Cornwall's weather distinctly milder than other places in the world at the same latitude, such as Newfoundland. Also due to the Gulf Stream, Cornwall has the UK's only area of sub-tropical climate, at the extreme south-west of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Palm trees are a common sight in these areas. The sub-tropical nature has resulted in a number of botanical gardens, such as Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
