Property Location


Pendeen village has a general stores and Post office and there are four local pubs serving food. Three of these, as well as the Meadery and takeaway fish and chips, are within five minutes drive or a 20 minute walk down the hill.The small town of St Just is about 3 miles away which has shops including two butchers, a bakery and art galleries. Penzance is 7 miles away for more shops (including two supermarkets), art galleries and restaurants. Portherras Cove is a small beach about two miles from the cottage. There are steps down to the beach but no disabled or wheelchair access and it has no public facilities. Marazion, next to Penzance, has a beach much used for wind surfing and a low tide causeway to St. Michael's Mount (N.T.); access by taxi boat at other times.

There is surfing at Sennen (approx 7 miles), walks in all directions along the S.W. coast path, and riding at St Just. Geevor Mine (Pendeen village) and Zennor Wayside Museum (7 miles) show Cornish history; St Ives (13 miles along the beautiful north coast road) has galleries including the Tate, the Hepworth museum and the Leach pottery. An open top bus goes from Pendeen village to St Ives three times a day which saves parking in St Ives. Porthcurno has an excellent beach with all facilities, as well as the Minack outdoor theatre and the Cable & Wireless Telegraph museum. Penzance has Trengwainton (N.T.), Morrab and Penlee gardens, the latter also housing a collection of work from the Lamorna and Newlyn artists in Penlee House.

St Just-in-Penwith, once the centre of the tin mining industry in this area, is the westerly most town in Cornwall, last stop before Lands End. Geevor Tin Mine was the last to close in 1991 and reopened in 1993 as a Museum and Heritage Centre. At Lands End, the most South Westerly point of mainland Britain, sits many a tourist attraction. If you're lucky, of a clear evening, you will be able to see the stunning Isles of Scilly on the horizon.

From nearby Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. Slightly further afield is Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds. Mousehole is renowned for their Christmas Lights display attracting many visitors throughout December. The Tate, St Ives a short drive away combined with the Barbara Hepworth Museum provide a benchmark for local galleries and artists, attracting many visitors to the area throughout the seasons.

Comfortable, convenient to pubs and shop. Not luxurious but entirely adequate.

We wanted to stay together with a relative ,self catering and close to Chyprase Farm for a wedding. It suited our purpose very well.

Excellent cottage

The cottage has everything you need to stay there comfortably. The location is great if you have a car as it is so easy to get to everything and if you don't feel like driving you can walk down to the local cove and beach which are lovely (make sure you take the correct footwear though as it requires you to walk on some of the coastal path.) The owner made sure our stay went as smoothly as possibly and was happy to answer any of our questions and give us recommendations of places to go. The local pub, the North Inn, is also great and me and my boyfriend both recommend a day out to Geevor Tin Mine down the road. Loved it- definitely considering coming back again!

Wouldn't go again

Very basic accommodation, although clean. It lacks comfort. Bathroom clean and tidy, as is the kitchen. Bedrooms serviceable, clean and tidy. Only criticism is that the sitting room could be more comfortable.

We enjoy it here

Reluctant to offer too good a review in case other people find our new favourite place to stay. We never return to the same place as before but this was our second stay and we are thinking of making it a third time next year. Pluses: Location is great for surfers who want to stay on the north coast, good walking in area too. Cottage a good size for a week stay, sea views from kitchen and only 10 min walk from beach. Be aware: It is a little damp in the kitchen and toilet door doesn't lock, so not ideal for those who like perfection. Would like a cafetiere please!

A lovely little cottage

We had a good time at the cottage. Good value for money and just enough room for ourselves and our two growing lads. Very happy with the location. It was within walking distance of the beach (1 mile), plus the village has both a shop and pubs nearby.

Good location, reasonable price.....but unfortunatley a couple of comfort issues

The cottage was in a good condition and in a good location. Unfortunately, there were some elements which spoiled our comfort - namely damp and the restrictions placed on the supply of hot water. I realise the age of the property and the local climate, but most of the rooms smelt of damp and were indeed damp including the bedrooms which meant our clothing and bedding were affected. On our return home all our clothing (including unworn items) had to be washed to get rid of the damp and mustiness. The hot water supply was on a set time programme for two hours twice a day, and if we did not have baths etc. within that timeframe then for the rest of the day, until the next programme started, we had no running hot water. Yes there was an electric shower, but it would be nice to have the freedom to run a hot bath at any time of the day and not to worry about using up all the hot water. Having stayed in many cottages across the country, this is the first time we had experienced this, as most allowed an access to an override on the water heating to turn it on at freewill when required. and if this meant having to top up the electricity meter, then so be it! In the kitchen, some of the glasses, crockery and cutlery had to be cleaned before we used them for the first time as they were still stained or greasy. I do also have to mention a safety issue with the bottom end of the handrail on the stairs on the ground floor leading up. My young son unfortunately hit his head a couple of times on this causing injury. It is quite low (his head height) and rather than a rounded end to it, it is tapered off to a fine sharp edge pointing down so as described, for a child it is a hazard. To prevent further incidents during our stay we wrapped a towel around it to act as a cushion. Could I recommend the hand rail end is looked into as soon as possible, as I would not want this to happen to another child. We enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall, and it is a shame to highlight some issues with the cottage which could easily be addressed - in which case our review would have been more positive.

Basic but delightful

This little cottage was ideal for us. Compared with other cottages I have stayed in it was fairly basic, but this was reflected in the price, and in any case we had everything we needed. The garden was sunny and pretty, we could see the sea, and a 25 minute walk took you down to a really atmospheric headland with lighthouse. The location was excellent, ideal for Lands End, St Ives, Penzance and the Scillies.

Miners Cottage by the sea

From the price of the cottage we weren't expecting much more than a bed and a base for further exploration of the area but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised, a nicely fitted kitchen with all the appliances you could reasonably expect (no coffee maker though) and in lovely clean condition. The rest of the cottage is in similarly good condition, clean, nicely furnished and fitted out. I'd highly recommend taking a walk down to the lighthouse to watch the wonderful sunset of an evening and when the weather is clear during the day there's a good sea view from the kitchen, ideal to take your mind off the washing up after breakfast :) The owner is very pleasant and nice to talk to, sadly we had to cut our stay short for personal reasons but we would definitely book again.
