Wheal Bush Annex
About the home
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.

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.

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.

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!
