With views across the pretty valley at Shuffley, this pretty detached stone cottage has been rebuilt stone by stone by local craftsmen and now combines the warmth and character of the original building with modern comfort and facilities.
The large open plan sitting/dining-room, with wood-burner and comfy sofas, leads through to a light and bright kitchen/breakfast-room where you can enjoy your home-cooked breakfast overlooking the valley and maybe spotting the resident cows in the fields below. When it's time for bed climb the stairs to one of two en suite bedrooms, one enjoying views towards three stacks in the distance, the other with a Juliet balcony and views across the owners' land which is bordered by the river below.
Tin Stream Cottage is ideally located for the surf beaches at Portreath and all that this dramatically beautiful part of Cornwall has to offer. If you want to leave the car behind, why not walk or cycle the Portreath Branchline Trail which can be found really close by, this is just one of the many paths that follow tramway and railway routes once used to transport ore and vital supplies for the area's mines. With the Cathedral City of Truro and the thriving harbour town of Falmouth both within a half an hour's drive of the property, you really can get the most out of your holiday whatever takes your fancy.
