  • "We had a very peaceful and comfortable two week stay at The Roost, Belinda and Alan made us very welcome, included extra touches with a cream tea, bread and milk and other provisions awaiting us on arrival."

    The sheets and towels were changed mid stay and the cottage cleaned for us. Belinda even offered to do our washing for us as there is no washing machine facilities, our clothes were washed, dried and ironed and returned the next day. The family birds were also friendly calling out to you when they saw you. This Roost is highly recommended for a visit.

    Belinda, the owner, was attentive and very eager to please but not at all intrusive. The attention to detail was amazing and the lovely welcome of a cream tea ready for us on arrival says it all.

  • "The cottage is set in the grounds of the owners home, a peaceful location where we spent many evenings sitting on the patio watching and listening to the many garden birds."

    The cottage has all you need for the week and is clean and bright, we were met with scones, jam and clotted cream, with milk and bread in the fridge which was a lovely welcoming touch. The owners are both lovely and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Cornwall exceeded our expectations it is stunningly beautiful and knowing we had such a great base to retreat to at the end of each day made the experience even more enjoyable.

  • "This was a last minute booking but what a find it turned out to be !"

    Although compact the accommodation was very nicely furnished, fitted and decorated. Very clean and situated in very pleasant garden with it's own spacious terrace and BBQ area. We were greeted by such a lovely "welcoming pack" laid out for us ! The owners are on hand if needed but do not interfere in the least. Another bonus is having an owl, hawk and parrot in garden, (caged!). The owners are most approachable, friendly and helpful. If interested in mining history get along to nearby King Edward Mine.

About the location


Portreath 4.5 miles; Hayle 7 miles.

Camborne lies in the heart of a former mining community and was well known for its “Queen of Cornish Mines" - the Dolcoath copper and tin mine, the deepest in Cornwall. Today, Camborne is home to Heartlands, a community space covering 19 acres and scattered with remnants of the mining industry, providing a free space for visitors to explore the heritage of Cornwall, browse art and craft projects, stroll through the gardens and sit and share a picnic or enjoy lunch at the Red River Café. From Camborne centre you can follow an interesting town trail, or spend the afternoon in the museum before visiting the array of shops and pubs. A ten-minute drive from Camborne brings you to a wealth of sandy Cornish beaches including Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan. Camborne is ideal for exploring Land’s End, the Lizard Peninsula, Truro and the Eden Project, which are all less than an hour’s drive away, ideal for a day trip.
