    Fortunately Karen was next-door and was able to let us in and managed to open the safe to retrieve our key. Although I had booked Trelyn because it had 2 bedrooms each with an ensuite the towels were put in just 1bedoom and there wasn't a toilet brush or bin provided for the 2nd ensuite. Easily rectified by taking them from one to the other as required but as both of us wanted private facilities it wasn't ideal. Also, it was a shame that there wasn't a tumble dryer. The weather wasn't good for drying outside and there really wasn't an easy way to dry indoors, so I don't know how a larger party would have managed. The cottage itself was lovely and would certainly go again. Overall, apart from one bad meal at a local pub, we had a good holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback. It was good to hear that help was on hand at your arrival. Apologies for the towel, toilet brush and bin not being provided in the second ensuite, as these would normally be available in each room, had we been advised during your stay, we would have been happy to supply these to you. Our property does not provide a tumble dryer, but we do have a clothes airer. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and we look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

The property

Trelyn is a quintessential Cornish cottage lying in the sleepy village of St Day, home to two beautiful bedrooms, this semi-detached dwelling is the ultimate base for your next adventure to Cornwall.

Within a short stroll of the delights of St Day, and set in mid-Cornwall, Trelyn is perfect for touring holidays, with a layout ideal for two couples.

Take your boots and coats off in the tiled porch, passing the handy cloakroom on your left before stepping into the gorgeous, bespoke kitchen boasting a country cottage style with vanilla painted cupboards and a host of appliances, including an impressive Rangemaster electric cooker.

Delight in cooking up delicious dishes in here, afterwards serving up at the lovely dining table in the living/dining room beneath the rustic and original timber beams in the high ceiling.

Move across to the sitting area following your meal for an evening of relaxing on the sofa or one of the armchairs, enjoying a film on the large TV, or simply relishing the company and conversation while the woodburning stove, set within the exposed brick fireplace, harbours a warm fire.

Discover a peaceful moment or two in the fantastic conservatory, with more plush seating in here, it's perfect for sipping your morning coffee or getting lost in a good book.

In the warmer months make the most of the beautiful garden with lots of lawn space and flowers, along with seating for alfresco dining, your canine companion will be overjoyed.

Settle down after a busy day in one of the three bedrooms on the first floor with two king-size bedrooms to choose from; a master bedroom featuring a roll top bath within the en-suite and a walk-in shower, and the second room boasting an en-suite shower room, with both having plenty of hanging space for your things.

The third bedroom is a single room.

Admire the charming village of St Day as you stroll into the centre to pick up essentials from one of the two local shops here, or dine at The Star Inn after an energetic ramble in the local countryside.

Just a few miles away is the bustling town of Redruth which is well-worth a visit for its wider selection of amenities and local history with the Redruth Town Trail being a great activity to enjoy, taking you on a short walk through the town featuring places of historical interest.

Enjoy a day on the beach at Chapel Porth Beach, taking an afternoon stroll up to Wheal Coates along the South West Coast Path, or choose to relax on Portreath Beach, Perranporth Beach or even The Towans Beach on St Ives Bay, there's so many options all within an easy car journey.

Make unforgettable memories by going on an exciting sea safari or sea fishing trip, with boats leaving from St Ives or Newquay, offering you the chance to see marine life like seals and dolphins up close!

Plenty of watersporting fun can be enjoyed on the many beaches and at the nearby Stithians Reservoir where plenty of equipment can be hired including canoes, kayaks, paddle-boards and more.

The popular town of Falmouth is worth visiting for Pendennis Castle and the great selection of cafés and eateries here, whilst other attractions include Enys Gardens, National Trust's Trelissick Gardens and Flambards Theme Park.

Make special memories in Cornwall at Trelyn.

About the location


Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles; Falmouth 10 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.
