  • "Lovely , comfortable, homely."

    Lovely garden and in a convenient road. Ivy very friendly

  • "We loved the property, was ideal for our holiday needs."

    Everything was very clean and tidy, and the cottage had everything we needed during our stay. We arrived to delicious home made scones with jam and cream, plus a couple of pints of milk to get us started. Briefly met the owner and her lovely dog who seemed very nice. We found the bed a little soft to our taste, but other than that we loved it!

  • "We had a very enjoyable, relaxed stay at Fern Cottage in July."

    The location was perfect to us to visit our favourite places. Some of which are Porthtowan Beach, St Agnes, Truro and Falmouth. Lovely to come back to the cottage each evening, we just wish the weather was a bit warmer to make use of the lovely patio area and BBQ to the rear of the cottage.

The property

Resting in the quaint village of St. Day in Cornwall is Fern Cottage, a delightful reverse-level annexe, welcoming four guests.

Enjoying countryside views and a semi-rural location, whilst a short distance from a range of local amenities and hot spots, including Falmouth and Truro, the cottage offers the ideal base for both exploration and relaxation.

Benefit from off-road parking before entering Fern Cottage and ascending the stairs up to the first floor; be greeted by the open-plan living space, offering elevated vistas over the surrounding countryside, perfect for enjoying whilst preparing meals, dining and unwinding as a family.

For a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle, discover the conservatory, providing views over the rear garden, where you can dine alfresco, play with your furry companions, and enjoy your tranquil base.

There's also a utility room for convenience, peppered with handy appliances, set next to the contemporary shower room, servicing both ground-floor bedrooms; select between a king-size and a double, both featuring TVs, ample storage, and views to the rear of the property.

Awaken to your Cornish itinerary, starting off with a hike through either Bissoe Valley Nature Reserve, or Kennall Vale Nature Reserve, offering the perfect area for wildlife spotting.

Continue your travels towards the shoreline of Falmouth, where you can tour Penryn Museum, and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, explore the remains of Pendennis Castle, or lounge upon the sandy terrain of Swanpool Beach.

Reroute towards Penwith Heritage Coast, firstly visiting Carbis Bay Beach and its stunning turquoise waters, ahead of exploring St Ives and its host of attractions, including the Tate St Ives, and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Choose a well-positioned abode in Fern Cottage.

About the location


  • Porthtowan 5 miles
  • Portreath 6 miles
  • Truro 7 miles
  • St Ives 20 miles
  • Falmouth 10 miles

St Day was originally named after the little known Saint Day or Dye (better known in Brittany). The village now has a pub and convenience store, as well as a granite, gothic-style church dating back to 1828. Six miles away is the popular village of Portreath which attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese takeaway, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 7 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast to Gwithian and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
