    The accommodation is wonderful and the owners are very welcoming and left a lovely gift basket of goodies for us which was a nice touch. There are plenty of places to visit and only 17miles across country to the other coast.

  • "Miner's Cottage is not just a place to stay, it's a site steeped in charm and character."

    But what truly distinguishes it is the warm hospitality of hosts Sonia and Paul. Their meticulous attention to detail transforms your stay into a homely experience that will leave you longing for more. Nestled in a prime location, the cottage offers easy access to major attractions such as the Eden Project, Charlestown Harbour, and the Minack Theatre. Despite being so well-placed, Miner's Cottage remains an affordably priced gem. The versatile accommodation is an idyllic retreat for couples seeking a romantic getaway, yet it's equally suited for family holidays. Sonia, ever the thoughtful hostess, even arranged a cot and changing table for our 5-month old daughter, truly exemplifying their commitment to ensuring guests have a comfortable stay. In summary, Miner's Cottage is a delightful blend of comfort, charm, and convenience, all made possible by the exceptional hosting of Sonia and Paul. We're looking forward to seeing them again!

Later, step into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can help rustle up delicious meals that the whole family can enjoy at the dining table in the conservatory.

If the sun is shining, why not enjoy the meal alfresco style out on the patio or simply savour the last of the evening with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand.

When stars appear overhead, travel to the first floor to wash off the day’s adventures in the sleek shower room ahead of catching your rest in either a double, a small double or the single bedroom.
