WONDERFUL HOLIDAY COTTAGE
This is a charming, well equipped cottage and my second stay. It is perfectly placed for visiting both the North and South Cornish coasts and nestles in the friendly village of Stithians . I'm sure I will be back in the near future.

A neat and well presented cottage, ideal for a couple to explore the local area.
Difficult to locate initially due to the Cornish tradition of building cottages in tight spaces..
Wonderful access,narrow roads, comfortable cottage, great sleep.Excellent overall.A great holiday.
The location is excellent for seeing Cornwall and although access roads are narrow they grow on you.

Enjoyed our stay in well equipped and comfortable cottage. Met all our needs. Handy location for both coasts.
Tin - the powerhouse of Cornwall's industrial past. Oak wooded, heather topped valleys with crystal streams once throbbed with the racket of tin streaming - winning precious metals. Engine houses and stacks bear stark, romantic testament to a heritage borne of the bravery and determination of generations of miners and Bal maidens.
A short distance inland from Perranporth, St. Agnes and Chapel Porth are the Victorian towns of Camborne and Redruth - both produced world-class inventors and engineers. Camborne's Richard Trevithick created the world's first steam-powered road engine in 1801. His achievements are celebrated at Camborne's annual Trevithick Day celebrations in April. Redruth was an astonishing crucible of industry, the Scottish engineer William Murdoch lived here in the late 18th century and developed domestic gas lighting. Today, Camborne and Redruth are busy shopping and commercial centres that share a legacy of handsome 19th-century buildings and a remarkable industrial archaeology.
Further inland is Stithians Lake, for fishing, sailing, sailboarding and recently the stunning wake-boarding championships. For views of the whole region take the roads to Carn Brea or Carn Marth above Camborne. From here you can see St Ives, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth and east to Clay Country. Near here is the Great Flat Lode Trail through the mines and high moors.
Cornwall's mining country is steeped in history and is the industrial heart of the county. These days, most of the mining has disappeared, but it is still a fascinating area to explore and is steeped in history. A highlight is to hire a bicycle and ride along the old mineral tramway from Devoran to Portreath or the North Coast.
The harbour town of Falmouth is within a short drive with a number of attractions for the visitor. There is the fascinating National Maritime Museum or you can take a boat trip around the spectacular Carrick Roads or sample the stylish Rick Stein's Fish & Chip Restaurant or Oyster Bar.
The Helford River and Lizard Peninsula are also within easy reach. Take a walk along Frenchman's Creek made famous by Daphne du Maurier, visit the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek or take a drive down to the wild Lizard Point, Britain's most southerly point. Kynance Cove is not to be missed with its white Sands and turquoise water make this one of Cornwall's most beautiful spots.
