    “Wonderful location for exploring Cornwall.”

    Location of cottage in St Dennis was great, although a tiny place it had everything. Chemist, Spar, pub and two chip shops:-)

The property

A whitewashed, mid-terrace holiday cottage nestled in the heart of St Dennis, with beautiful views across the China Clay Mining District from the first floor double bedroom.

Just 20 minutes from both the north and south coasts, and an even shorter drive to the Eden Project, this wonderful holiday home is the perfect base for exploring Cornwall.

The front door opens directly from the pavement into a charming sitting room, with a large dining table beside the front window and a comfy corner sofa against the back wall.

It is a wonderful, social space where everyone can dine together, plan adventures using the leaflets and brochures kindly provided by the owners, and then retire to the sofa and watch a film after a long day.

The galley kitchen leads through to a bright bathroom and a door into the back garden, where you enjoy a quiet morning coffee and hang your wetsuits out to dry in the sunshine.

Up the narrow, open staircase are two bedrooms.

The twin bedroom has a small TV for DVDs and good storage, whilst the double bedroom has a telescope in the window for enjoying the stunning view between the opposite houses, to the countryside beyond.

St Dennis is a fantastic location for exploring Cornwall.

You can reach Newquay on the north coast, or Charlestown on the south coast, in just 20 minutes.

As the surfing capital of the UK, Newquay is friendly, fun and vibrant with plenty of watersport activities including surfing, coasteering and jet-ski safaris.

Charlestown boasts a picturesque harbour, charming little shops, and a wonderful selection of pubs and restaurants.

Snippets of the BBC’s hit drama Poldark was filmed here, on its sheltered beach, so you can walk in Aidan Turner’s footsteps when the tide is out.

Goss Moor National Nature Reserve, The Eden Project, rated Cornwall’s number one attraction in 2016, and the beginning of The Saints Way, in Padstow, are all within a half hour drive.

Without a doubt, this friendly welcoming cottage is ideal for exploring Cornwall and uncovering the many wonders of this stunning county.

About the location


St Austell 7 miles.

To the north west of St Austell Bay lies the quiet village of St Dennis, nestling amongst the “Cornish Alps”, named after the conical piles which dominate the landscape. This was once a busy china clay mining area, but is now renowned for The Eden Project, itself built in an exhausted china clay quarry. St Dennis village has a good selection of shops including a chemist and a butcher, and is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall, being mid-way between the north and south coasts, and also with easy access to main roads. Nearby is the Goss Moor trail which offers seven miles of fabulous walking routes. From the rugged coastline between Perranporth and Newquay in the north, to the softer sandy coves around St Austell in the south, there really is something for everyone within easy reach of St Dennis.
