Cosy south-facing,pet-friendly,cottage,well placed for exploring West Cornwall

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-Nov-2016
1 bedroom, mid-terrace cottage and garden with rural views in quiet backwater

Inbetween Cottage is situated on the edge of the hamlet of Crofthandy ,close to the villages of St.Day and Carharrack,3 1/2 miles from the town of Redruth.

It is,in my opinion, an ideal base from which to explore an area once described as the richest square mile in the world because of the large copper and tin ore reserves found locally .It's now a world heritage site,criss-crossed by a myriad of walking/cycle trails ,some only 100yds away. However it is equally well placed to access the beaches on both coasts(Portreath 5mls,Falmouth 8mls) and the major towns(Falmouth 8mls,Truro city 7mls).Lands End is about 35 miles away,St.Michaels Mount 20 miles and the Eden Project around 30 miles distant.There are many great gardens to visit and explore within a 20 mile radius.In short there is something for every interest and everybody in Cornwall and all in easy reach from my cottage.

The cottage is light and airy ,greatly benefiting from it's south facing location.It is open- plan downstairs,with a well equipped kitchen containing a washer/dryer,oven+hob,fridge with small freezer compartment,toaster and microwave, a dining area with table and four chairs,and a cosy lounge area with two two-seater sofas,tv/dvd combo,radio etc.The lounge area has a high,exposed beamed ceiling.The stairs lead up to a landing with a double bedroom off,equipped with a double bed ,bedside drawer units with reading lights, a 5-drawer chest and double wardrobe ,all pine,two seats from which to enjoy the view and a wicker hamper containing extra pillows/duvet.The separate shower room,also off the landing, contains a large shower enclosure with a mains pressure,thermostatic shower mixer,vanity basin, heated towel rail and ,of course, a toilet .The ceilings upstairs are also a generous height, unusual in a cottage.This contributes to the light and airy feel of Inbetween.

Dogs are welcome downstairs (stair-gate fitted) and in the garden.There are off-road dog-walking opportunities along the many footpaths criss-crossing the now largely overgrown,former mining terrain within 100 yards of the cottage.

The south facing garden contains a companion seat ,a picnic table on a paved patio area,a stand to use disposable barbeques on and a lockable shed for bike etc. storage.There is also a rotary clothes airer.Laundry accessories can be found in the cupboard under the stairs with an iron in the under-sink cupboard.There is a storage box for muddy boots just outside the front (and only!) door and a hosepipe with jet nozzle for rinsing muddy doggies or what-you-will just inside the garden gate.

There is free wi-fi,inclusive heating (storage plus imitation wood burner) and electricity,Towels(not beach) and bed linen are supplied.Non smoking indoors.

Parking is available in the road beside the terrace's gardens and is only shared with number 3 and visitors .Lewis and Alison,in number1 ,generally park alongside their own cottage (Inbetween is number 2).The cottages are set at right-angles to the road,as can be seen in some of the photos.

Inbetween's post code is TR16 5JB.Detailed directions will be released on the Owners Direct site 2 weeks before your booking is due to start.This is for security reasons.

Please take a few minutes to have a look at the photos and read the reviews posted by my previous guests and feel free to ask any questions you wish.Thank you for taking the time to read about Inbetween Cottage,hope to see you soon,Mike

Cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

In a good location to explore Cornwall, this cottage is the perfect place to stay. Cosy and warm for the winter months and a nice garden for the summer. Everything is immaculately clean and it has all the amenities you would need. Would stay again.

A real gem of a cottage

  • 5 of 5

Of the many cottages we have stayed in over the years this is one of the best. Warm, light, with every attention to detail, and located within reach of both the coast and Truro and Falmouth. Ideally situated for walking and sightseeing. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Thank you Mike, we hope to stay again one day.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet Neil and his wife and an even greater one to know that they enjoyed their stay so much.I'm looking forward to welcoming them again in the future when maybe they'll have a little more time to relax and explore this part of Cornwall.

The most comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

The owner had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. It is a delightful cottage and everything in it works! Dog-walking was, as advertised, just a few steps into the Wheal Maid area and we found the position of the cottage a great centre from which to explore Cornwall.

A little Gem

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we wanted and more. We often choose to stay in cottages whilst holidaying in the UK and I can confidently say this was one of the best. The size is ideal for a couple, in particular the kitchen is very well equipped meaning that those basics you don't realise you need, were provided by Mike and saved having to "manage" or dash out to the shop. The whole property was immaculately clean and seemed brand new. Thoroughly comfortable at every level. A lovely little garden to sit, eat and catch the sun.

The location is great for exploring the whole of Cornwall, really central.

Mike was great to deal with: helpful, considerate, un-intrusive and committed to making our stay as positive an experience as possible.

Owner's Response: It's wonderful to receive such a very positive review.I always strive to provide a comfortable holiday home. A base which has all the basics my guests need,a foundation on which my guests can build to shape their own personal holiday whatever their interests.It is very gratifying to know that those efforts don't go unnoticed and are appreciated.

Wonderful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we were looking for. Nice and compact but with everything we needed.

Well furnished and equipped, to a high standard.

Very nice touches courtesy of the onwner Mike, a bottle of wine and some very nice biscuits.

Would definitely consider staying again.

Location

From the Owner

I bought and renovated Inbetween Cottage (finishing in Sept. 2015), and then because I felt that it is in an ideal location for a holiday base and the lovely feel of the cottage I decided to let it as a holiday home as I was sure that others would appreciate the opportunity to spend some time enjoying the very relaxing ambience it provides.Having made that decision I've tried to provide everything needed within and without (I can't guarantee sunshine but there are many indoor attractions to visit!) for a comfortable,hassle free holiday. My instincts have been confirmed by the many guests who've stayed and very much enjoyed their time at Inbetween and in Cornwall,some of whom have already returned for another stay and I'm delighted to have had a part in making their holiday a success.

Facilities

From the Owner

There are rural views to be enjoyed in this quiet location from both the bedroom window or garden.The cottage and garden are south-facing and well placed to benefit from any sunshine on offer.Although the address is "Riverside Terrace" the "river" is a mere stream(hopefully it will stay that way!!) and ,sadly, can't be seen from the house .It runs under the road about 50 yards away and disappears across the fields opposite !.
