The property

Within four miles of fabulous beaches on the Atlantic coast and framing amazing countryside views, this lovely traditional cottage has it all! Nestled at the foot of Carn Brea Hill in a scenic hamlet setting, Pengwithor makes the perfect holiday escape for families, couples and friends.
The Atlantic coast has a host of beautiful beaches for swimming, surfing, rock pooling and dune-side picnics. Discover Portreath and Godrevy Beach or head north to St Agnes' stunning Trevaunance Cove with cliffs, coastpath and famed ales at Driftwood Spars Inn. St Ives is less than 15 miles away. Hop aboard the branchline train at Lelant for a superbly scenic coastal journey into this iconic seaside resort. Browse the boutiques and art galleries including The Tate and seek refreshment in one of the many waterside eateries and coffee houses lining the harbour. Maritime Falmouth and rugged Land's End are famed destinations.
From Pengwithor's doorstep, enjoy a ramble to the top of craggy Carn Brea Hill with spectacular ocean views across the bay. The dining experience at the Castle Restaurant is unique - do book in advance! An area rich in mining history, visit Heartlands Cultural Centre with museum. Wander the coastal footpath displaying an ever-changing seascape or for less energetic walks, Tehidy Country Park is close by. Colourful Truro with majestic cathedral, theatre and cinema has entertainment for all ages.
Pengwithor is well presented, spacious and very welcoming. With an elegant interior mixing traditional and modern (built for the local miller in 1892) this attractive granite cottage has all the home comforts, adjacent to the owner's home. The sitting room has a real-flame gas fire for extra cosiness during cooler breaks and a separate dining room for gatherings and board games. The shaker style kitchen has all the appliances to store, prep and cook (choice of supermarkets are nearby - or sample the local pub fayre.) The bedrooms are pretty with stripped pine floors and louvered shutters and all front rooms enjoy Carn Brea's glorious vista. The garden is an enclosed sunspot for nibbles and tipples with lawn for children and pets to play.
