Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Hillside cottage can cater for parties from one to five shared between two double rooms and a 'put up' bed downstairs. The cottage has a separate dining room and kitchen with washing machine, microwave and gas hob. Upstairs there is a bathroom with shower. Outside there is a South facing patio with a view of the cathederal and city, a great place to BBQ, enjoy a drink and relax after a hard days sightseeing!
My week runs from Friday to Friday as people tell me it's easier to get in and out of Cornwall rather than a Saturday in high season.

The West Country region
Beautiful places, interesting towns, stunning coastline and accesibility. This sums up the Cornish experience in or out of season. Truro is ideally situated to get to everywhere you need to go but at the same time retains some peace and quiet for your stay coupled with handy access to bars, restaurants and shopping.
You could explore the rugged cliffs of the North Coast and walk the coastal path that tin miners originally made on their way to the mines. Equally you could visit the South coast with its inlets, rivers and hideaway pubs. Known for always being a few degrees warmer than the rest of the UK, Cornwall is without exception the ultimate UK holiday destination.
The Eden Project, The Tate Gallery in St Ives, The Summer River Ferries from Truro, The National Maritime Museum in nearby Falmouth. History museums, beaches and fabulous walking are just a few things to consider when coming to Hillside Cottage. Highlights for Summer 2008 include:
Trevithick Day, Saturday 26th April 2008: Held in Camborne, Trevithick Day is an annual celebration of the history and mining heritage of the area and is a festival of free street entertainment with the focus on the inventor, engineer and pioneer.
