The property

Ideally positioned for exploring all of Cornwall with easy access to both north and south coasts, this delightful annexe is situated in the heart of the historic village of St Day in central Cornwall.

Perfect for a week-long adventure with the family, or for a romantic weekend away with your loved one, Fern Cottage offers a comfortable base for all.

Set out in a reverse-level layout, upstairs you will find the open plan sitting room, comprised of a fitted kitchen, dining area, and sitting area.

Spend your evenings lounging on the sofa with a good film, or throw open the Juliette balcony and catch the sunset over the rolling hills.

As the day draws to a close, head downstairs to find two tastefully presented bedrooms, a double and twin, served by a family bathroom.

The double bedroom leads to a conservatory with doors to the patio and garden.

Rounding off the interior of this St Day cottage is a utility room with a washer dryer and dishwasher (both of which are operated by a £1 electricity meter).

In the summer time you’ll find yourself spending most your time outside, with a lawned garden and a patio area with furniture, ideal for those alfresco meals.

Walk into the village of St Day to find a convenience store and two inns, as well as a granite, Gothic-style church dating back to the 1800s.

Portreath is a short drive away and perfect for a day out, with a number of fascinating shops, pubs, cafés and most importantly, a fabulous sandy beach which is popular with surfers.

For the more active, nearby is Cornwall’s premier leisure centre, golf, fishing, horse riding and surfing are all readily available, so there really is something for everyone.

Expect a holiday filled with outdoor activity with a stay at Fern Cottage.

Note: The washer dryer and dishwasher are located in the ground floor utility room and both appliances are operated by a £1 coin operated electric meter.

About the location


Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles.

St Day was once the mining centre for mid-Cornwall until nearby Redruth took over the title, and you can still see the terraces of granite cottages originally built for the miners. The village was originally named after the little known Saint Day or Dye (better known in Brittany). The village now has a pub and convenience store, as well as a granite, gothic-style church dating back to 1828. Six miles away is the popular village of Portreath which attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 7 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.

Note: The washer dryer and dishwasher are located in the ground floor utility room and both appliances are operated by a £1 coin operated electric meter.
