Cornish miner’s cottage dating from the era that the Poldark novels are set, tucked away in a quiet location behind the dunes between Perranporth beach and Holywell Bay.
Recently renovated and updated with 21st Century facilities including new bathroom, WiFi, smart TV and USB charging points.
Originally built in the 18th Century: the lounge and double bedroom date from this period. At the end of the 19th Century it was extended to create the village shop and post office (now the dining room) and there is still a working postbox in the outside wall!
Characterful living room with fireplace, woodburner and exposed beams. The arch by the fireplace was the bread oven where bread was proved before baking.
Kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, washing machine, microwave/combination oven, toaster, kettle.
Bathroom with toilet, washbasin and walk-in shower (NB no bath - only a small cottage and good quality shower is more useful).
Dining room with large table and 4 chairs.
Double bedroom with fullsize wardrobe and chests of drawers.
Twin room with bunked fullsize singles and chest of drawers.
Private garden with lawn and patio overlooking the Treamble Valley.
Spectacular walks and pristine surf beaches in the immediate area. Winston Graham lived just down the road in Perranporth and based many of the locations in his Poldark novels on this stretch of coastline.
The central position along Cornwall’s coast, less than 10 minutes drive from the A30, also means that just about anywhere in Cornwall can be reached in less than an hour, making it a perfect base to explore.
Neighbours are retired, quiet and lovely.
Bookings are Sat-Sat.
