Redruth Holiday Cottages
Carn Brea and Carn Marth, Redruth is an historic mining town well placed for touring Cornwall's many delights.
The town was once the region's biggest and richest metal mining centre, with a reputation for engineering innovations and names like Murdoch, Trevithick and Watt linked to its fascinating heritage.
Attractions near your Redruth cottage
Don't miss a trip to East Pool Mine, a Cornish Mining World Heritage Site featuring two superb beam engines. Enjoy an afternoon at Burncoose Gardens, a 30-acre horticultural hotspot with a huge range of plants, woodland trails and café. For water sports galore - sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and trout fishing - head for Stithians Lake. (You can book lessons and hire equipment locally.) Get close to badgers, reindeer and other animals at Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre - a fantastic day out for all the family, with falconry, night walks, rock pooling and nature trail safaris. Go for a ramble in Tehidy Woods - a must in springtime when it's carpeted with bluebells. Or hit the gorgeous sandy beach at nearby Portreath - a favourite haunt of the surfing set. Summer brings continental markets and also the annual celebrations of Murdoch Day, when Redruth hosts a fantastic programme of events.
Add a touch of glamour to your Redruth cottage holiday at Treasure Park, where you'll find beautiful jewellery shops, lots of entertainment for children, Hollywood-style dining venues and crazy golf - and the whole place is dog-friendly!
After a day's adventure, relax in your Redruth cottage or head into town for restaurants, bars and movies.
