Tranquil setting,close to the coast.Beautiful secluded and secure garden.Children and dogs welcome!

Lavender cottage was sympathetically refurbished in 2013.A delightful period cottage with the footpath to the country park running past the gate, an 18 hole golf club within 2 minutes walk, and spectacular beaches and coastline within a few minutes drive - an ideal retreat in which to relax ,after a day out walking or exploring all that this beautiful county has to offer. We love our cottage and want to share this special place with others.Tastefully decorated and furnished Lavender cottage is a very special place. With practical tiled ,and wood flooring the cottage is ideal for dog owners.Out of season Cornwall is still a wonderful holiday destination with quiet beaches for walking on,cycle trails to explore and of course dramatic scenery as one walks the coastal path.Enjoy a romantic Christmas with an open fire and traditional decorations to include a real tree.

The cottage has a spacious fully equipped kitchen with a dining area to seat up to 6 people with a view of the well stocked gardens.The garden is enclosed and,therefore, safe for children and pets.

About Angela Pearce

My husband and I purchased Lavender Cottage in April 2013 as a retirement venture .Our intention has been to enjoy it ourselves as a very local country/coastal escape and to share it with others who also have a love of this beautiful county. We like to meet and greet our guests on arrival -providing a welcome pack and showing them around the property. We are happy to share our knowledge of the immediate area having lived here most of our lives.

We maintain Lavender Cottage ourselves living only a short distance away. At any time we are on hand to help and advise - just a phone call away.

My husband is a linguist and speaks fluent German.

Why Angela Pearce chose Camborne, Redruth & Hayle

This beautiful cottage is in the heart of the country but in an ideal location, situated on the edge of a golf course,close to the North coast and its spectacular beaches. The A30 is 5 minutes away and the south coast and west Cornwall are within a half hour drive. Wonderful walks from the cottage gate. Surrounded by wildlife and woodland-the perfect country retreat!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Angela and Paul were exceptionally helpful hosts both before we arrived and while we were at Lavender Cottage we appreciated their generous welcome basket and fresh flowers.Lavender Cottage is charming and equipped with absolutely everything required for a wonderful self catering holiday for 4 people.We loved the garden and the cottage's close proximity to Tehidy Golf Club where we ate on several occasions.Although it's on the opposite side of the world to us we may well return!

Greay week

  • 5 of 5

A great property in a lovely location with walks from the house in the woodland and easy access to the coast path. The house has everthing you need and we were welcomed by the owners with a gorgeous cream tea, wine and biscuits. Very dog friendly and would recomend it to anyone, with or without a dog. Thank you

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely and quiet little cottage near Tehidy golf club and the coast. Everything was just fine and clean- just as we expected it. Paul and Angela were also very kind and helpful. We would recommend Lavender cottage without exception.

Quiet location - surrounded by woods

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location - surrounded by tehidy woods. We stayed hear with 2 dogs so being able to walk them without needing to drive was an advantage. The beaches and cliff path are also very close by.

The cottage had everything we needed, of towels, comfy beds,the kitchen had everything you could think of.

Although I don't hesitate to give the property full marks and would recommend the only slight downside was the shower. The overhead shower didn't have much power. However everything else was perfect.

Stunning cottage, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Lavender Cottage. The cottage is beautiful and equipped with everything you could possibly need - even free wifi to keep the kids happy! The location is perfect for exploring Cornwall, you can reach the A30 in a few minutes. We spent a stunning afternoon at the Minack Theatre, walked the coastal path in both directions to Godrevy and Portreath, crossed the causeway to St Michael's Mount, the children even zip-wired over the biomes at the Eden project. Tehidy Country Park is so close and perfect for dog walks. The meals at Tehidy Golf Club were amazing, we couldn't manage 3 courses! The little extras that Angela & Paul provide go way and beyond what you would expect. We would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be returning.

Fantastic amazing place to stay - Lavender Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was simply amazing we loved it. The location was perfect so close to walks beaches. The cottage was immaculate so clean and the beds and pillows so comfortable. Angela and Paul were so lovely they met us at the cottage and showed us where everything was. Even dog treats and towel for the dog. The personal touches - the fresh flowers and of course the cream tea waiting for us made us feel so welcome. I would definitely recommend a stay at this cottage you won't be disappointed. It was so nice after a busy day on the beach to come back to such a comfortable place to stay. The gardens outside are tranquil and it was so peaceful would definitely go back.
