Fabulous beaches and superb coastal hot-spot resorts are reached within a short drive of this beautifully presented holiday retreat. Characterful Falmouth is within 8 miles and picturesque St Ives is just over a half hours drive away. Newquay with super surf and bustling Penzance are also within easy reach. Garden View is tucked away from the road in an elevated spot on the edge of Lanner village, making an ideal base for families and couples to explore Cornwall's north and south coasts. Adjacent to the owners' own home, Garden View has an attractive sun-spot patio for alfresco dining overlooking the large shared garden with a complimentary barrel sauna and raised lawn - take care with children as there is a drop and some steps. There is a pretty stream and pond in the front garden (please supervise children)
Lanner village boasts three family-friendly pubs, a superb fish and chip shop and bakery. Enjoy a round of golf or tranquil cycle trail along the ancient Mineral Tramways. The charismatic cathedral city of Truro has a cinema, theatre and a plethora of stores to quench that retail fix. Explore one of the National Trust houses nearby or visit scenic St Ives - a must visit resort with excellent eateries, coffee shops, art galleries, boutiques and choice of beaches, all arcing around the little harbour. From maritime Falmouth, take a boat trip or ferry to beautiful Flushing or St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula or visit Pendennis Castle. Falmouth has four beaches for picnics on the sand or fun in the water, with beach cafes for refreshment. Newquay is a great attraction for surfers - here you can hire boards and take lessons at fabulous Fistral Beach.

About the location
Redruth 2 miles; Falmouth 9 miles; Portreath 7 miles.
Just outside Redruth on the road towards Falmouth, Lanner was once part of Cornwall’s mining epicentre. Today, the village is welcoming and friendly, with a number of convenience stores, a bakery, a village hall and several good pubs. Carn Marth overlooks Lanner village from its hilltop location; a former granite quarry, this is now a lovely place for a walk or cycle. Nearby Carn Brea is worth a visit too; here you will find a Medieval castle (now a restaurant), which once belonged to Lord Bassett, the most influential mine owner in the area during the 18th and 19th centuries. The beaches at Portreath and Porthtowan are just a short drive from Lanner, and there are several off-road cycle trails in the area, including the Coast to Coast Trail which follows the original tramway from Portreath on the north coast to Devoran on the south.
Note: regretfully, no children under the age of 5. Take care with children as there is a drop and some steps.
