The Pankiln, Wheal Rashleigh
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Wheal Rashleigh Dry is a collection of barns sympathetically converted from a historic china clay drying house in the former mining town of St Blazey. The barns make an ideal base for visiting the Eden Project and the pretty fishing villages of Fowey and Polperro.
Internally, The Pankiln provides spacious open plan living and is furnished to a high standard throughout. Externally, the barns benefit from large communal grounds.
The Pankiln is ideally positioned for visiting The Eden Project, one of the most famous family attractions in Cornwall, with botanical gardens and a fantastic programme of theatre and music events. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also close by and provide beautiful gardens to explore.
The largest town in Cornwall, St Austell, is a short drive away and boasts a lively community packed full of shops, bars and restaurants for all the family to enjoy. For a real taste of Cornwall the traditional fishing harbours of Polperro and Fowey are close by with fantastic fish restaurants to sample the catch of the day.

St Austell Brewery has been brewing beer and real ale since 1851
The largest town in Cornwall, St. Austell is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Boasting a number of top attractions, such as the unique botanical gardens The Eden Project, an interesting brewery tour of St. Austell Breweries (with samples!) and an historical look at the china clay heritage of the town in the Wheal Martyn China Clay Heritage Centre, there is certainly plenty to see and do.
There are a number of great pubs selling great pub grub and a fine selection of St. Austell Breweries ales, shopping options galore in the newly redeveloped White River Place in the town centre and a fine assortment of beaches to enjoy a last day on the sand. The Clay Trail is a great way of exploring the history of the town, which dates back to the middle ages, via the stunning coastal and countryside views.

"Good location but needs a new bed"
Very conveniently located for Eden, Heligan and Llanhydrock but spoilt by a worn out bed in the main double bedroom downstairs. All members of our family took turns to sleep there and some ended up on… More
Many thanks for your feedback regarding The Pankiln. This is a very popular and well maintained property, and there has not been feedback on the mattress before your stay. Without the feedback it is often difficult for owners to know of an issue, but immediately after receiving your feedback the owner replaced the mattress. The owners value feedback to improve the comfort of their guests and always act on any problems as soon as they're notified. We do encourage our guests to inform Blue Chip Holidays of any issues during the stay so that we can help address these as quickly as possible, it is unfortunate that on this occasion this didn't happen.
