    The cottage is lovely, and the owners are very accommodating and were able to assist us with all our requirements. The cream tea on arrival was amazing the best scones we have ever had. I would highly recommend Scotts Cottage to anyone going down to Cornwall.

    Private and secluded with wonderful views from the balcony and great spaces to sit inside and out. Everything is done to a high standard, including comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Claire and Dan are fantastic hosts - we've never had such detailed info on a property, history and area sent to us before a holiday, and they they checked by text to make sure we had everything we needed. The location is perfect for visiting southern Cornwall - everything is in reach from Land's End to the Lizard. We are hoping to come back soon!

  • "Scott's Cottage really is a little oasis of calm."

    A lovely outlook from the garden area with numerous sun traps to enjoy throughout the day. The Cottage is well appointed and has a modern colour scheme throughout. The Annex is great if, like us, you have a 'G'ma' along for a holiday. It offers the privacy but is only a few steps from the cottage. The welcome pack of a Cream Tea was most welcome after a long drive and the owner was helpful with any queries we had during and prior to the stay. The position of the cottage makes for easy access to all the fantastic coastline with everything you need within a quick drive. The lane past the cottage leads to a heritage mining building on a well trodden footpath which is worth the stroll to see. Would always check availability here first if returning for another Cornwall break.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Scott's Cottage."

    The property is even lovelier than we expected. It is situated down a lane with just the owner nearby; so you can expect peace and quiet at all times. The annexe is perfect for an extended family; being entirely separate from the main cottage. All facilities are provided; no need to hunt for anything. The cottage is within an easy distance to local beaches. Mullion Cove, Penzance, Helston steam railway Flambards and the seal sanctuary are all well worth a visit. Claire left us a fantastic welcome pack; including a Cornish cream tea. My family will be booking again in the future.

  • "The cottage was very nice and in a beautiful part of cornwall."

    It's location is very quiet and surrounded by natural beauty, fields, flowers and nearby bee hives. The 2 narrow lanes are very narrow, lovely but narrow, but this added to the exclusivity. The hedges either side need cutting back robustly. The cottage would most definitely benefit from a tumble dryer, this is bot a criticism but more a personal preference. The cottage is really very good and the garden full of lovely flowers, a BBQ, table and chairs and outdoor heater and pull out washing line. The annexe is very nice too. This is a great family cottage and very romantic too, beautiful views from ground level and from the balcony. Would I recommend this...yes highly. Would I return...yes I intend too. The owners are very kind, professional and very helpful and a delight to converse with.

The property

This fabulous, detached, renovated 18th century cottage, with its own annexe, sits within a World Heritage site, renowned for its tin and copper mining legacy, with several iconic chimney stacks nearby.

Located in the little hamlet of Trew just outside of Breage, with views over what’s locally known as Gold Hill from Wheal Metal and the valley down to Porthleven, on a clear day you can see as far as Goonhilly Earth Station and the Lizard Peninsula.

Once a mine chaplain's dwelling but now a light-filled, spacious contemporary home, Scott's Cottage lies at the end of an unmade ancient lane that leads on to a multitude of quiet scenic walks through this UNESCO World Heritage site, placing Cornish mining heritage on a par with international treasures like Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

Perfect as a base for groups of friends and families wanting to explore stunning South West Cornwall.

This fabulously presented cottage offers bright, spacious accommodation, is surrounded by glorious countryside, enjoying a tranquil rural setting that’s rich in wildlife, with only the owners’ house as neighbours.

Just a short drive away is the charming, historic harbour village of Porthleven, renowned not only for its beauty but also for its culinary delights, pubs, famous restaurants and the increasingly popular annual food festival.

After a day spent uncovering the delights of the Cornish coast, prepare delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, before sitting down to eat together around the large, seats eight, dining table and put your feet up and relax by the warming wood-burning stove.

On warm summer days and evenings, open the atrium’s huge folding glass doors and venture out onto the south-facing gravelled garden, light the barbecue and gaze across wonderful countryside views while you enjoy a refreshing drink in the secluded garden.

There are many delightful and unique beaches hidden along this stretch of coast from Porthleven, including Poldhu Cove, the tropical Kynance Cove with its white sand and turquoise water, Polurrian, Mullion, Loe Bar, Rinsey Head, Praa Sands, St Michael’s Mount and Sennen Cove, with St Ives a short drive away featuring St Ives Tate, The Barbara Hepworth Museum, the golden sands of St Ives Bay and the fabulous Gwithian Towens.

The Isles of Scilly make a spectacular day out to see Tresco Abbey Gardens, which can be easily reached by air or sea, or simply enjoy the local area, come and meet the resident Shetland Ponies, Goats and Chickens at Hope Farm.

Upstairs, from the cottage landing there are three pretty bedrooms, including a king-size double room with a balcony and superb countryside views, a twin room, and a room with adult sized bunk beds.

The spacious fourth bedroom is located in the detached annexe, which houses a super king-size bed with zip and link feature (can be a twin on request), boasting an en-suite shower room, and facing onto the private garden, also ideal for those with limited mobility.

Whilst there is no telephone, WiFi with internet access is available so you can check your emails, post Facebook updates, search and browse to your heart's content, maybe planning where to eat or visit tomorrow.

Off-road parking is available for four cars.

About the location


Porthleven 2 miles ; Helston 3 miles ; Penzance 10 miles.

A peaceful, rural village located in between Helston and Penzance, Breage is home to the 12th century St Breaca church – and on Tregonning Hill, the highest point in the village, are the remains of an ancient settlement. During the 19th century, Breage was an important mining centre, producing considerable amounts of tin and copper. Today, the village has a small but welcoming community, a lovely pub, playing fields and a village hall. The much-loved harbour town of Porthleven is just a short drive away, with its various waterside inns and restaurants – and the glorious stretch of golden sand at Praa Sands beach is just 3 miles along the coast.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
