This comfortable semi-detached period cottage is found on a quiet country lane within walking distance from the village of St Day.

St Day, which is just under a mile away, is a traditional village with a mining past, as shown by its old engine houses. Here you’ll find plenty of shops and pubs as well as a post office. The north coast of Cornwall, famous for its peaceful coves, surfing beaches and golden sands, is also just five miles away, with Porthtowan being the closest coastal town. You are situated perfectly to explore many beaches that are dog friendly. Many of Cornwall’s most popular towns, including Truro, Redruth and Falmouth are all also within easy reach. Check out the regular stock car meetings at the local race circuit, a local custom.

While the property is finished to a high standard, it still retains its original period charm. The secluded location as well as the care and attention paid to this property make it a perfect place to stay for couples. It offers an open plan lounge, kitchen and diner, making the living space nice and airy. The lounge has a TV/DVD and hi-fi, while the kitchen is equipped with everything you need including an integrated electric oven and hob, fridge with icebox, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, with an en-suite shower room and WC.

Outside of the property, there is a spacious enclosed patio which is a suntrap during the afternoons. Guests can make the most of the sunny garden and dine al fresco with garden furniture and a BBQ. There is also a washing line should you need to dry any wet clothes or towels. Ample off-road parking is available immediately outside the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Good location, very central for Cornwall highlights, although not great for local; services (pubs / shops etc) you will need a car. Well equipped cottage.

Excellent cottage ideally situated, the north and south coast within a 20 minute drive. Thoroughly reccomended.

Reviewed by David, 15th June 2019

Anchor cottage is very nice, clean and comfortable accommodation well equipped in a beautiful quiet rural location but not to far away from the coast or local amenities in Redruth. Fully enjoyed our stay and would recommend fully anchor cottage

Reviewed by Andrew, 8th June 2019

Lovely cottage with all the facilities needed. Nice enclosed garden excellent for our dog and lots of local walks. The Star Inn 5 mins walk away was a great friendly local pub. All in all the perfect holiday cottage.

Reviewed by Stephen, 1st June 2019

The location was ideal for what we wanted, close to tourist attractions but on the outskirts of a small village so little traffic. Local shops and amenities only a short walk away.
