Tintin Cottage

1870 is no longer with us

If you were looking for cottages like Tintin Cottage, how about trying these:

This cute and cosy cottage is a dinky semi-detached former tin miner's home, and is charmingly located on a traffic-free lane. It is simply perfect for couples looking to escape and enjoy a peaceful break in a woodland setting. Just a three minute walk away is the gorgeous and popular sandy beach of Carbis Bay, spend carefree days enjoying all the amenities this upmarket beach has to offer.

Tintin Cottage has a snug sitting/dining-room with a wood-burner adjoining a small kitchen, where polished oak stairs lead up to the inviting bedroom and shower-room (there is one small step down into the bedroom and shower-room). Outside, stone steps take you up to a secluded and sheltered decked-area that is an ideal sun-trap and perfectly private for a morning coffee and croissant.

Although Tintin Cottage cannot be accessed by car due to the steep narrow path, private parking is available at Sandpiper, a steep 200 yard walk away (or around 300 steps if you are counting).
