Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Located on the North/South coast cycle trail amidst the tin mining landscape that is Cornwall's World Heritage site. It is unique, it feels like it is the middle of nowhere but actually is only 20 minutes drive from the city of Truro and 15 minutes from the beautiful beach at Perranporth. Killicor Stamps is the ideal base where you can hide away for some well-earned peace and quiet or go out and explore this amazing landscape.
A converted stable, this ground level accommodation mixes the convenience of modern living with the wilderness charm of being self-contained. There are no pubs, restaurants or night clubs within walking distance; there are no motorways, multi stories or housing estates on your door step. Instead you will find a place that offers the opportunity to rekindle the spirit of "family holidays" where you can enjoy the freedom and fun of doing "stuff" together or if there are just the two of you, relish the romance of being alone, with a large bed, 2 bathrooms and a log fire. No Smoking is permitted in the property building. .

The West Country region
This accommodation is surrounded by trees and fields,located in the Poldice Valley, mid way along the Portreath to Devoran national cycle trail amidst the tin mining landscape that is Cornwall's World Heritage Site.
It is a very historic but rural landscape within easy reach of Perranporth and Portreath beaches for some traditional seaside fun, only 20 minutes by car to the bustling City of Truro with its shops and farmers market, the historic mining town of Redruth and the picturesque town of Falmouth with its deep water harbour, Castle and multitude of restaurants and pubs. Cornish weather is "changeable" It can be raining in the morning but sunny in the afternoon. It can be wet on the North coast but dry on the South Coast.
The narrow landmass offers a mild climate, it very rarely snows but in the winter we will get clear starry skiles and an occasional frost.
For those who like water sports or beaches the accommodation is centrally located for visiting Newquay, Portreath and Perranporth. For museums and gardens the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock House, National Maritime Museum and Tate St Ives are all within easy reach by car.
If your preference is for towns and villages with a quintessentially English/ Cornish feel then drive a littleway South to find St Ives, Marazion, St Michael's Mount and Mousehole. For breath taking scenery Sennen, Lands End and the Lizard all offer an amazing view of the coastline and if you are feeling fit you can walk the coastal path and reward yourself at the end with an obligatory cream tea. For the younger members of your family when they are bored with the beach you can visit Flambards theme park, Buccaneer Bay, Geevor Mine Museum, the National Seal Sanctuary or Screech Owl Sanctuary, all offer an entertaining day out.
For those of you who enjoy being out of doors there are numerous public footpaths and cycle trails to explore that are all free of charge and Bissoe Cycle Hire is close by if required. If you like sea fishing then boat trips are available from Falmouth and if you fancy some evening entertainment, then only 10km away Falmouth & Truro both have cinemas and theatres but for something a little bit different, between the months of April and September, be prepared for all weathers and book a seat at the open air Minack theatre, take a picnic, see a show and watch the moon rise over the ocean.

"Superb hidden treasure!"
I stayed at Killicor Stamps in August and was impressed with the standard of accomodation from the minute I arrived. It can be found just off the beaten track next to a cycle path in a fantastic part… More

This was a true find! It felt very luxurious and yet homely. I think part of that was because there seemed to have been so much attention to detail by the owners. With a 3 year old, it was fantastic t… More

We went for a short break. We were more than happy with the house, it was great, so clean and modern. There was so many personal touches to make you feel at home.
It is situated in a very quiet location, so was lovely and relaxing. We went to some National Trust Gardens and to St. Ives. All in a short driving distance.
We will definately be going back.

This cottage is relatively new, and a lot of time and effort has gone into it. It is accessed via a cycle path so it is a little out of the way but is in a fantastic location. There is alot of outside space and 2 sets of french doors, one of which opens out onto a decked area which was perfect for the summer evening. There are no neighbours, well not that you can see anyway, and there is a field next to the cottage which is owned by the owners of the cottage which gave extra space, not that it was needed.
The layout of the cottage has been well thought out, and it is tastefully decorated. There is a main living area which encorporates the kitchen, and the bedrooms are located at either end of the cottage. The twin room is next to the family bathroom while the double bedroom has a beautiful en suite with double basins and a very luxurious shower!
The owners were friendly and we were welcomed with provisions in the fridge which added a personal touch. The cottage was very well equipped, just about everything you needed in the kitchen which is a real find in a holiday rental, usually you just get basics but we wanted for nothing.
The cottage has 2 flatscreen tvs, along with playstation, freeview, wifi, all that is needed to keep teenages occupied which again was an added bonus.
This is by far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, and I am loath to review it simply because I dont want it to be booked up next year!!!!!
Absolutely fantastic cottage, great location for exploring cornwall, very well thought out and maintained by lovely people.
Will definatley be returning.
Thank you for your positive comments. It's great to know that you all had such a good holiday.
