Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nanteague at Tregaminion is located between St Keverne and Porthallow Cove amongst farmland and woods. A rich variety of wildlife may be seen including barn owls, buzzards, woodpeckers and countless other birds, badgers and foxes and the resident Muscovy duck and occasional visiting Mallards and Moorhens! We provide binoculars in the property. On clear nights the lack of street lighting allows breathtaking views of the night-sky.
The footpath to Porthallow beach runs along the perimeter of the property through the woods and fields and takes about 10 minutes. In the other direction the path will leads to St Keverne - taking about 25 mins.

"Beautiful spot, immaculate cottage, a must!"
We had the pleasure of staying in this property early on in the season of 2012. The hosts were lovely and we couldn't wih for a better spot. It was so well cared for you really felt like you'd inherited a little bit of luxury. There is a walk from your door straight across fields to the local beach and do hve a meal at the local inn, really nice. The underfloor heating in the cottage was uch a bonus and don't mention the scones. If they could send me a batch every week or the rest of my days that ould be lovely. Also Roskillys fudge, Sarah left us some. We then went to the dairy (as its nearby) and purchased loads. All in all a great holiday and would love to go back one day!
