The property

A beautiful, traditional semi-detached cottage resting in the pretty village of St Day, Trelyn offers two couples or a family a truly idyllic spot for a Cornish adventure.

Being located in mid-Cornwall means easy access to both the north and south coasts, with Trelyn boasting a homely atmosphere and rustic, original features.

Enter through the tiled porch, with a bench here to take your boots off after a country walk, before heading into the bespoke kitchen with vanilla painted units and a large Rangemaster electric cooker at your fingertips, you're sure to enjoy cooking in this beautiful space.

A door to the convenient utility lies at the end of the room, with a dishwasher and a washing machine here, with a handy cloakroom near the kitchen entrance too.

Discover a wondrous living/dining room, with the lovely dining area to your left and the homely sitting area to the right, with an amazing stone fireplace home to a woodburning stove.

Relax here during the evening on the sofa or armchairs and delight in watching a film on the large screen TV, all beneath original exposed beams in the high ceiling.

A charming conservatory is the perfect spot to rest in when you're looking for a peaceful moment with a good book, or step outside in the warmer months to make the most of the beautiful garden, spanning three sides of the property, it has a lovely sheltered patio area, seating and lots of lawn space for your canine companion to play on.

Following a busy day, head upstairs to sleep in one of the two elegant king-size bedrooms, with the master room benefitting from an en-suite bathroom, complete with a roll top bath and a separate walk-in shower, whilst the second bedroom is served by an en-suite shower room.

There is also a third bedroom with single bed.

The sleepy village of St Day is a serene location to base yourself on your trip to Cornwall, providing everything you need for a self-catered stay with two local convenience shops and two pubs, along with plenty of pretty countryside to walk around.

For those who love an afternoon exploring gorgeous gardens, head to the lovely Trelissick Garden, owned by the National Trust, set within a scenic estate with floral gardens, woodland walks and riverside paths to discover, along with an art gallery, bookshop and a café to stop in too.

Less than ten miles away is the wonderful Chapel Porth Beach, another National Trust gem, it is surrounded by cliffs and caves and is popular for bodyboarding, with lots of walks to be enjoyed here too along the South West Coast Path taking you up to the iconic Wheal Coates remains, great for holiday snaps!

For an exciting coastal adventure, book a boat trip like Sea Safari St Ives or Newquay Sea Safaris and Fishing, perfect for animal lovers who want to experience seeing amazing marine life in their natural habitats including seals and dolphins, with keen anglers surely delighted at having the chance to catch dinner!

Just five miles away is the beautiful Stithians Reservoir, home to Stithians Lake Watersports Centre offering you the chance to try kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, paddle-boarding and more.

Spend a day exploring the vibrant town of Falmouth and visit Pendennis Castle along with a host of options for eating out, with bistros, cafés and bars to choose from.

Spend an exciting holiday exploring Cornwall, always returning to the peaceful haven of Trelyn.

About the location


Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles.

St Day was once the mining centre for mid-Cornwall until nearby Redruth took over the title, and you can still see the terraces of granite cottages originally built for the miners. The village 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 restaurant, 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 and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
