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.
