The property

Nestled in the centre of the old mining village of St Day, is this traditional mid-terrace cottage.

Miner's Rest offers an idyllic getaway for two couples or a family looking to explore the history of Cornwall.

Kick off your shoes after an adventure filled day and retire to the sitting room where you can cosy up with your loved ones around the open fire.

If you're feeling peckish you can rustle up your favourite meal in the kitchen and gather around the dining table to plan the days ahead.

Maintaining the traditions of old mining cottages, the ground floor is complete with a bathroom with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Venture upstairs for some well-earned rest in one of the three bedrooms that the property boasts where you can wake up to delightful natural lighting drawn in through the characteristic windows in either the king size, a twin which can be super-king-size on request, or single bedroom.

Step outside to the courtyard where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the patio or indulge in a refreshing tipple, perfect for the warmer summer weather.

On sunny days, enjoy a day out at the nearby coastal village of Porthtowan, home to one of Cornwall's most popular Blue Flag award winning surfing beaches.

Dip your toes in blue waters or take a stroll along the coast and enjoy a pit stop at Blue Bar for a glass of wine with a breathtaking view over the beach.

For a taste of history visit the nearby cathedral city of Truro where you can discover the region's heritage at the Royal Cornwall Museum Cornwall or do a spot of shopping at Lemon Street Market, home to the city's best independent retailers, where you can pick up a keepsake to remind you of your time away.

Miner's Rest offers the perfect getaway to discover the delights that the picturesque region of Cornwall has to offer.

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

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.
