Our Cottage is in a quiet and convenient position. All the beaches are within easy walking distance and Porthmeor Beach (the surfing beach), is close enough to carry out your tea tray! It's also the ideal spot to take your barbeque and watch the sunset over the dying embers - as we often do. In the summer we have visits from seals, dolphins and basking sharks. There are surf lessons available, and a lifeguard keeps watch over all in the season. The waters are blessed by the Gulf Stream. The coast path runs nearby and walks in either direction - to Zennor with its Wayside Museum - or to Lelant (and back on the little train) are both picturesque and fascinating.

The area
abounds in historic monuments, from Iron Age hillforts and ancient field boundaries, to the numerous remains of the mining industry. Geevor Mine is has just been designated a World Heritage Site - it has a wonderful museum and you can go down underground to see what it was really like. There are galleries galore, and many open studios, while the Tate with its regularly changing exhibitions is just behind the cottage. It also has a lovely roof top licensed cafe. Barbara Hepworth's studio and the Leach Pottery are both within walking distance too.

We have 3 double bedrooms, one with a king size, the second with a pair of twins, the third with full size bunk beds. There's a comfortable sitting room and a fully equipped new kitchen.

There is a cute sun trap of a Mediterranean-style patio upstairs with table and chairs and a palm tree! To the front off the kitchen there is a wooden bench - perfect for morning coffee and meeting the neighbours!
A comfortable and stylish cottage for a wonderful holiday by the sea!
