Apart from the Owners and one other cottage, your nearest neighbours are the old mining engines.
Peace and tranquility awaits you.
The Potting Shed has a gravelled path leading to the front door.
This area was once the heart of the mining industry in this area, there are walks on the doorstep around the miles of mining trails.
Mexico towans at Gwithian sands is a dog-friendly beach all year round, there is a climb down the sand dunes, but the long sandy beach is worth it!
The sandy beach at Portreath is great for sand castle builders, surfers and sunbathers. (Dog-friendly in the evenings and 1st October to Easter Day).
A visit to Heartlands, the World Heritage Site not only explains the mining history of Cornwall but there are lovely gardens and a great cafe.
There are great walks along the network of 37 1/2 miles of Mining Trails in this area, walk or cycle - there is lots to see.
The monument on the top of Carn Brea, the views from up on the hill are stunning on a clear day.
Your four-legged friend will enjoy exploring the trails too!

We had a great stay at the potting shed. The whole "shed" was very thoughtfully refurbished. Nice touches everywhere from the Gate valves as coat hooks to the Bath Robes for after a shower. Sharon and Sue seemed very nice, we saw them for a wave here and there, but always available if needed. We will hopefully be back in the future. Regards

Keith, Jo and Molly the dog

Nothing that could be better, very sympathetic and helpful landladies, a cosy, little accommodation in a beautiful garden. The Potting Shed is the right place if you are looking for a relaxing break. We love it!

A little gem! Quiet location, but convenient for exploring Cornwall. Good cycle paths close by. Beautifully equipped for its size - making clever use of the space available.

The Potting Shed is a little gem in the Cornish countryside. The building has been beautifully refurbished and the fixtures and fittings have been chosen to a high standard and in great taste. The owners provide every comfort and ensure a warm welcome.
