About this property

If you love to escape and get away from the crowds, then this cottage, set in a rural location, is the perfect property for you.
Located close to Carn Brea Castle, this semi-detached cottage is approached by a long, private, unmade lane, and is set within the grounds of the owner’s home. The property offers guests an ideal location for exploring both the rugged north coast of Cornwall, popular for surfing, and the more tranquil, sailing waters of the south coast. High on the Carn, the area has views to both coasts on a good day.

Grade II listed Carn Brea Castle dates back to the 14th century, and was extensively remodelled in the 18th century as a hunting lodge in the style of a castle. Originally built as a chapel in 1379, its use as a beacon for ships was recorded in 1898 when stipulated in the lease, the tenant agreeing to show a light in the north-facing window. Today, it is a popular restaurant and a frequent favourite with visitors as a great viewing point.

The industrial town of Redruth is close by with shops, pubs, restaurants, a cinema, and the wide sandy surfing beach at Portreath is just a short 15-minute drive. Explore the long beach and sand dunes at Hayle, as well as its wide estuary, which is a bird watchers haven. The magical town and harbour of St Ives, famous for its golden sandy beaches, can be reached by the scenic coastal train that runs from St Erth.

For walkers, Tehidy Country Park offers 250 acres of tranquil walks and lakes, whilst the South West Coast Path provides some of Cornwall’s best scenic walks. The area has some rugged walks and bridle paths steeped in true Cornish mining traditions, evident with old mining houses dotted around the countryside. A true Poldark experience as it is the heart of the old tin mining country. Bike enthusiasts will love the nearby trail along the old tram line, which is now a designated cycle trail from Portreath on the north coast, to Devoran on the south coast. Cycle hire can also be found locally. Beach 5 miles. Shop and pub 2 miles, restaurant 1 mile.

"Had a wonderful holiday made extra special by the comfort and homely feel of Nans cottage. Very peaceful setting after a days sight seeing and exploring the beautiful county of Cornwall. Barbara and Sue were excellent hosts - nothing too much trouble. Would definitely recommend"

"The cottage itself is lovely. It is off the beaten track so you need to follow the owners directions as the sat nav does not recognise the location. Nice quiet location.Great for the dog lots of open space and fields close by The owners live either side of the cottage so well looked after.Greeted to complimentary cornish cream tea with local jam cream and butter. Barbara also made us a loaf of bread for our arrival. The fridge was kitted out with local milk and cream.The freezer had ice cubes at the ready,as we are having a heat wave.Tea coffee and sugar all there. In fact we did not need to use anything that we bought with us.Barbara, Sue and Frank have thought of everything. it is a home from home.Would highly recommend to friends and family."
Paul ‐ 19 Jul 2018

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Made to feel very welcome by the owners. Sad to leave at the end of the week. Would definitely visit again!"
Colin ‐ 24 May 2018
"Very friendly and welcoming cottage , we had an enjoyable stay ."
Jane ‐ 24 Feb 2018
"Barbara and her family have thought of everything to make this lovely cottage into a home. Our stay was just what we wanted - restful and stress free. Once on the main road the cottage is ideally situated to visit many areas of Cornwall easily. The only draw back is the private long drive leading to the house- it is an unmade track and in a few places our car scraped the ground. Barbara is going to look into this and see how it may be resolved. We would definitely return with no hesitation."
