    “Silvermine House is one of those places you’ll go back to again and again.”

    Fantastic view, great accommodation and located near to everything you need, be that beaches, restaurants or places to walk. All of us absolutely loved it.

The property

Charlestown 1.5 miles.

This magnificent, detached barn conversion is simply outstanding and is set within 8.5 acres of private grounds, located within the pretty village of Porthpean, a National Trust Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

You will be met with far-reaching sea views upon arrival, with a large driveway offering ample parking.

This traditional stone barn offers a reverse-level setup, with six spacious and well-presented ground floor bedrooms and a first floor lounge, all of which boast sea and country views from every window.

No matter what time of year you arrive, you will not tire from relaxing and observing the daily and seasonal changes of the surrounding views and countryside.

The bedrooms consist of a choice of doubles, twin, bunk room and super king-size double, offering flexible sleeping, and complete with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

There is a spacious and well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, which has a large rustic reclaimed table with two benches and chairs boasting sea views for all guests to enjoy and cook up some delicious home-cooked meals.

The first floor provides a large lounge area, which is simply stunning with its high-vaulted beamed ceilings, including bespoke LED lighting and unrivalled sea views over the front of the property and the rolling fields flanking the rear.

There are two large leather sofas next to the woodburning stove, a great resting spot with your glass of wine and a book, or for a quiet chat with friends.

Delight in the wall-mounted TV, with sound bars placed around the room, giving you a taste of the cinema lifestyle right from your living room!

Outside boasts a patio area, with a hot tub, perfect for letting those bubbling jets relax those tired muscles.

Step down to the separate terrace, with seating for up to twelve, where you can soak up the peaceful tranquil surroundings, then venture towards the games room and gym with a rowing machine and weights machine, not to forget the pool table and juke box.

Guests can join Cornwall’s Coastal Path, just a few steps from Silvermine’s private lane to explore and be inspired by the wildlife and scenery in one of the UK’s most beautiful areas.

Porthpean is a stretch of coastline between Charlestown and Black Head, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while Porthpean Beach is ideal for families, windsurfers, swimmers and sailors.

There is a golf club and sailing club less than a mile away and along the coastal path there is an easy walk into Charlestown, which remains an unspoilt, original Grade II listed harbour.

You will find elegant Georgian houses and two fisherman’s cottages with plenty of tasty treats, whilst the harbour offers two small sand and shingle beaches, popular filming locations and is a key setting for the filming of BBC’s series Poldark.

You can explore this beautiful region easily as you are 1.5 miles from A390, a fantastic base for your Cornish adventure and creating your holiday memories.

Enjoy walking amongst the most beautiful scenery in the world on the Cornish footpaths, visiting the quaint and picturesque Cornish villages and meandering through the streets visiting art galleries, bars, restaurants.

Silvermine House is an outstanding holiday home that can be enjoyed all-year-round.

About the location


St. Austell 1.5 miles; Eden Project 2 miles; Truro 16 miles.

A delightful and much sought-after coastal village of stone cottages and Regency houses, on the south coast near St. Austell. Famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path, it’s the perfect holiday destination. It has even been used as a filming location, most well known for appearing in Poldark. The area is rich in golf courses with Carlyon Bay and Porthpean close by. The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey is 20 minutes' drive away by car, while the Lost Gardens of Heligan, several stately homes and gardens and the fabulous Eden Project are all within 5 miles, with Newquay and North Cornwall coast only a 35 minute drive away by car.
