Redruth; Historically the worlds mining capital : Cornwall, and in particular Redruth,is well known for its mining history. The area shows many of the old mine workings some of which have been partially restored and now provide excellent informative walks. the Great Flat Load allows visitors to enjoy the area on cycles. For the more adventurous the restored tram way from Portreath to Devoran enables vistors to cycle from one side of the coast to the other; a total of 11miles. There are two cycle hire stores nearby one just outside Portreath and the second at Bissoe.

The Gold Centre is just over a mile away and some of the old ore dressing workings are operational.

At Pool (2miles) the working beam engine of East Pool mine and across the road the larger but not yet fully restored beam engine of the East Pool and Agar mine provide and insight into mining conditions of yesteryear.

Local beaches: Buzzards Cottage is an ideal location to visit the numerous beaches. Whilst Porthtowan and Portreath are only 2.5 miles away the property makes getting to other coasts extremely easy. Falmouth; Newquay; St Ives and Penzance are only some half an hour away whilst the 7 miles of Golden Sands at Godrevey through to Hayle are only 9 miles away.

Why not visit Falmouth utilising the unusual Park and float scheme. This allows visitors to park in Penryn and travel into Falmouth by boat. For a small additional fee you can venture across to St Mawes. A pleasant trip even if you don't have great sea legs.....

Truro City: The city of Truro is only 9 miles away by car whilst the park and Ride scheme is only 7 miles away. Truro with its cobbled streets;magnificient Cathedral and the entertainment facility at the Hall for Cornwall provides something for all ages.

We've just got back from an excellent week at the cottage. I can't praise it highly enough. Mike and his family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The cottage is superb. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. It was the perfect base for our holiday in Cornwall.

Very comfortable home from home like, everything that you possibly needed, welcome gift on arrival - Bottle of wine, eggs, milk, tea & coffee. Beds were comfortable, along with the sofas, Mike & his family made us very welcome & Puppy/Dumpey the dog was gorgeous, very friendly.

This is a lovely bungalow set in the grounds of the owners property. The bungalow is very modern & well equipped & is in a perfect location for getting around Cornwall without having to drive too far. Booking was easy and good value for money especially at New Year. We would certainly recommend staying here.
