Wheal Bush Annex
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Wheal Bush Annex is a brand new conversion of the annex to three old miners cottages that was completed in July 2009. Set in a quiet rural location it provides stunning accommodation for a wonderful peaceful break. When you arrive you will be greeted with a cream tea of homemade scones, jam & cornish clotted cream.
The property is located within a World Heritage Site within 200 yards of the Portreath to Devoran cycle track that meanders from coast to coast along an old mineral tramway. This offers gorgeous off road walking and cycling through glorious countryside all year round. The property is within a 10 minute drive of the popular beach at Porthtowan as well as being close to Chapel Porth and St Agnes beaches. These are some of the best surf beaches in the county.
The property is easy to get to being within a 3 minute drive of the A30 so is easily accessible. It is also within a 10-12 minute drive of both Truro and Falmouth should you fancy some retail therapy. The stunning scenery of St Ives with its wonderful restaurants, shops and galleries is a 20 minute drive away. Padstow is a similar distance away along the north coast.

"Perfect for walkers and couples"
Stayed for easter weekend from good Friday to Monday. Greeted by Karen and mark with the friendlyist dog in the world dave. Made to feel very welcome and at home straight away. Room is perfect for couples and also if you have a dog.Their dog dave loved playing with ours and always came round to say hello in the morning (I think the treats we gave him helped). A gorgeous cornish cream tea is waiting for you on arrival and everything you need is there ready for you. Perfect place for walking the dog as there is a wood right behind the property. The cornish way goes right through the the wood and stretches from the north coast right down to the south. Fantastic place to relax and unwind and take in the gorgeous county. Will definitely return next year.

"Excellent value - ideal for a couple wishing to explore Cornwall"
Very friendly, personal service from the owners, who although lived next door, maintained our privacy. The property was fairly small but was very nicely furnished in a modern style and appeared spacious. Bedroom and en-suite bathroom very comfortable and restored beautifully.
Location was in countryside, close to a bridleway. Access to main roads was very easy, although we got very confused with the local roads and never seemed to go back to property the same way twice! There was easy access to the rest of SW Cornwall from this location.

"A lovely stay, thank you!"
We had a great week at Wheal Bush Annex. The accommodation exceeded our expectations and was very good value for money. It was cosy but plenty of room for the two of us and the dog. We were made to feel very welcome and Archie (the dog) loved having Dave the dog to trot around the garden with. The cottage is in a great location for exploring and dog walking. We loved it and i'm sure everyone who visits will love it too!

This was in an ideal location close to Truro, Penzance, St. Ives and the beautiful beach at Hayle. It was quite easy to find and was in a very quiet area. I would recommend this accomodation to anyone who wishes to be close to all the beaches and nearby towns and villages. The scone and clotted cream with strawberry jam were a lovely welcoming gift. Thank you for a wonderful break.

"Perfect quiet retreat in mid-cornwall"
We have just returned from a lovely break at the Wheal Bush Annex, thank you Karen and Mark (and Dave the dog)!
The annex is attached to the owners house, but you have absolute privacy. Mark and Karen are great hosts, on hand if you need anything, but happy to keep quiet if you just want to potter about and find your own way.
It is quite small, but it has been converted very well, and the facilities are just what you need. Our only negative comment was that the bed was quite small, it seemed smaller than a regular double! So if you are long and tall, or perhaps on the curvier side, it might not be as comfy as you require! Despite this, we slept well - all the fresh country air, and it is so peaceful and quiet.
The surrounding area is full of things to do. Right next to the property are two old cornish engine houses, which are lovely to look at. From here there are numerous country walks and bridle paths (if you are of a horsy nature!). Oh and you can cycle lots from here too. A car is essential though as it is very rural, but this wasn't a problem and there is parking right outside. There isn't a pub or restaurants to walk to, so you really need to drive out to one of the local villages or towns.
We were looking for a base to relax and explore the local countryside and this is a perfect spot. We enjoyed going out for the day, lots of walking around the coastline, lunches and cream teas and then we pottered home, cooked tea and drank wine! Perfect. It is really easy to get to St Ives, Newquay, Padstow, Fowey and more. Mark and Karen have lots of tips for nice beaches, pubs and place to eat locally, we particularly enjoyed Godrevy Head and PorthTowan beach.
I really look forward to returning to the Wheal Bush Annex, we had a lovely break. The added bonus is Dave the dog. A wonderful whippet who will happily come and sit with you in the garden or in the annex. We were really hoping that Dave might like to come back to Brighton with us . . !
Thank you for your lovely review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify - the bed in the property is a standard 4 ft 6 double however we had a look at the mattress in the property and thought that it looked a bit tierd so we have bought a new pocket sprung matress today !! We hope that when you come to stay again you find it better and thank you for bringing it to our attention.
Thanks again & we all look forward to seeing you ( especially Dave!)
