Built around 1849, Pentrew is a traditional granite cottage located in a tranquil spot on the wild Cornish coast; just north of St Just and within easy reach of Sennen, St Ives, Penzance and Lands End. It is full of character with a colourful history - it was originally built by a copper miner working at the Levant mine at the end of the lane. In one corner of the garden is an unusual conical building said to have been the explosives store for the mine.

Standing in a secluded garden beside a no-through road, Pentrew enjoys spectacular far-reaching views over countryside and open sea to the Isles of Scilly. The cottage is within walking distance of both village amenities and spectacular cliff-top walks; with stunning sunsets you will never forget!

Studded with the ruins of iconic Cornish engine houses as a reminder of its mining days, this is a World Heritage Site as well as being a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and in the Trewellard Village Conservation Area.

The West Country region

The ancient landscape and special quality of light on the Penwith peninsula have inspired artists and storytellers for hundreds of years, while the rich deposits of tin in the region put the far west of Cornwall on the map right from the start of the Industrial Age. Today all that remains are the atmospheric ruins of iconic Cornish engine houses set against the rugged coastline - it's no wonder that this is a World Heritage Site and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Almost with its own microclimate, spring comes early in West Cornwall and the many beautiful gardens are home to exotic species that wouldn't survive elsewhere in the UK.

St Just

Nearby St Ives still attracts many leading lights of the art world, the miles and miles of coast path make this the perfect spot for walkers, the pristine sands at Sennen are a favourite hang out for surfers, while the fairytale St Michael's Mount castle at Penzance is a reminder of the far west's rich heritage of myth and legend.

"Lovely cottage is beautiful area"

We had a fantastic holiday with our 2 Boarder Collies at Pentrew in July. The cottage is cpacious for a family and had very good facilities and a lovely garden. We had a couple of bbq's and enjoyed seeing the sights of Cornwall for the first time.

Would recommend using the buss to go round Penzance-St Ives-St Just-Lands End, which picks up frim just up the road.
