The property

Characterful tin miner’s cottage close to Porthleven and some beautiful beaches.

Set in the peaceful village of Ashton which lies just over a mile from the coastal path and picturesque sandy cove at Rinsey, where beach goers and surfers follow the winding footpath down towards the hidden sands and rock pools below the old mine stack that pin points this lovely piece of coastline. There is a family run pub within a short 2 minute stroll whilst Porthleven is just 3 miles from Driftwood Cottage, with its array of restaurants, cafes, pubs and gift shops.

Walkers will delight in the stunning views from the coastal footpath leading to the nearby Loe Bar and beyond, and for those keen to catch their own supper, fishing trips leave from the harbour throughout the summer season.

Famous St Michael's Mount at Marazion and the ancient market town at Helston are a ten minute drive in opposite directions, whilst St Ives, Falmouth and Penzance can be reached within a 30 minute drive. A charming gated garden leads into this charismatic cottage that was once a traditional miner's cottage dating as far back as the 1800s.

Carefully restored with exposed granite walls and beamed ceilings, the rooms are full of character.

A wood burning stove creates a cosy atmosphere in the comfortable sitting room.

The well presented dining room has an open aspect into the well equipped kitchen where a door leads outside.

Stairs lead up to two very attractive bedrooms decorated to a high standard with the use of pastel shades and soft furnishings whilst the twin room has distant views of the sea.

There is an enclosed rear garden with attractive patio.

Off road parking available to the front of the property.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
