The Potting Shed


4.1 miles S of Portreath / Sleeps 2 + cot* (no children from 1 to 16)

7 Nights from £304 - £699

Nestled in the lovely hamlet of Treskillard, on the Owners' smallholding, you will find this adorable little cottage, once home to the gardener's rake and flower pots. Peace, greenery and bird song surround this detached studio barn and the thoughtful simplicity of the cottage's interior is welcoming and very charming. The small but cleverly designed elfin kitchen, with two electric rings and a combination microwave, is perfect for rustling up a cooked breakfast or light bite. Sit out on your private terrace, enjoying the fantastic views, and when you return after a busy day out exploring, sink into the king-size bed to recharge your batteries before awaking refreshed and ready to do it all again. The Potting Shed welcomes babies under six months old.

Time at The Potting Shed can be as busy or as relaxed as one chooses. For keen walkers, you may have hit the jackpot as the Great Flat Lode is right on your doorstep, just one of the many mineral trails you can walk or cycle, taking you from coast to coast or simply for a few miles inland following the old trails of the mining industry. When the coast beckons head off to the sandy beaches of Portreath or Porthtowan, both just a 20 minute drive away, or further north head up to Chapel Porth where you will see even more evidence of this area of Cornwall's very rich mining history. When you return to the cottage take a seat on the gravelled terrace to the rear of the cottage and enjoy the views over the Owners' garden, whilst planning your next adventure.
