  • "This was our 3rd stay here and will be back again"

    Thanks for the kind words Nigel. We work hard with Lucy, our Housekeeper to maintain the standards that we would expect ourselves. Look forward to welcoming you to Brass Bolt again! Property Owner

  • "We had an excellent 4th stay at the Brass Bolt Shop, aided by good weather."

    In the rush of leaving we forgot to put an entry in the visitors book - please let the owner know we had a good time.

  • "We loved our week in Cornwall, the Brass Bolt Shops location for us was great."

    We found some lovely pubs and beauty spots within a 10 minute drive. Loads of great places to eat but also the kitchen was so well equipped it wasn’t a chore to eat at home a couple of nights. Loved the property, only draw back for our party was the number of armchairs and location of the main seating area. We brought a chair down from the mezzanine which helped but it would have been nice to have had a sofa in the lounge area.

  • "The cottage was very good."

    We were somewhat disappointed by lack of any sitting out area. We thought a development like this should have had a communal garden area with an opportunity to sit and maybe BBQ.TheRe was plenty of area that could have been utilised

  • "On the downside small area for 4 people in lounge."

    Heating problem the next day we arrived, but was satisfactorily dealt with, albeit engineer had to be called in the next week to sort out properly. Good that two bathrooms were available. The area dating from 1791 was fascinating, consisting of buildings of an old foundry that had been developed with updated accommodation. Fairly close to Truro and enjoyed taking the local train to Falmouth and looking at the Maritime museum. Unfortunately bad weather during the week was disappointing.

  • "The property was well-appointed and in an excellent location."

    Very suitable for 2 people (we are sisters) but for 4 would be 'crowded'. Small issues... 1.We had to hunt for dish washer tablets (who takes them on holiday and I don't have a dish washer?) Also no kitchen paper towel. (we bought some) 2.The boiler fired all night and the heating system is highly complex - we reported to daughter of owner (locally) Everything else was perfect.

  • "Yes we would, but selfishly we want to keep this place secret."

    It's in a great location for a brilliant holiday, nestled between Falmouth and Truro. There are lovely places to walk and fabulous places to eat at. We will be back.

  • "Easy enough to find."

    Car parking for one car. Nicely decorated and comfortable accommodation. Has everything you would be likely to need in terms of white goods, bathroom facilities etc, Ideal location for walkers. Although two double bedrooms and would seem ideal for four adults there were only two comfortable chairs for relaxing and watching TV. There was however a mezzanine floor with comfortable seating but this was too far away if you all wanted to watch the TV.

  • "Had a great week at 1 The Brass Bolt Shop, I felt 'at home' right away."

    The decor, fittings, heating systems and furnishings are all modern, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you might reasonably need. The cottage is set well back from the road and the whole development is friendly and peaceful. It's ideal for exploring Cornwall - wonderful day trips in all directions and (especially) easy to pop into Falmouth.

    No view of local landscape but we expected that. Friendly neighbours and good location for visiting some of our favourite haunts. Everything is included for a comfortable stay, thanks

  • "This was a lovely location with an historic interest to the cottage."

    The cottage was absolutely perfect and so nice to have a whole packet of biscuits and a whole pint of milk to welcome us (besides tea, coffee etc). Wonderful furnishings, white goods and the showers second to none! A very comfortable stay for our week in this stunning area of Cornwall.

  • "We were a little worried when we first pulled into the site as there is a bit of construction still to do but as we drove over the amazing packhorse bridge and into the central courtyard we were pleasantly surprised at the complex created."

    The self catering property was faultless, wonderful kitchen, dining and sleeping facilities. The shower room and ensuite were of very good quality. Would definitely book again

The property

In a wooded valley in Perranarworthal, The Brass Bolt Shop is a Grade II listed cottage on two levels in a smart private residential development of cottages and apartments converted from historic Perran Foundry and set within 5 acres of grounds in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the banks of the River Kennall.

The foundry dates from 1791 and was a hub of industry until 1879; it is now a fascinating World Heritage Site.

Particularly good for couples or a small family.

Inside, the cottage has been artfully renovated to sensitively merge contemporary comforts with the original spirit of the building.

The open-plan split-level living-dining room has slate floors and oak beams and a vaulted ceiling; step up to the stylish fitted kitchen and through to the ground floor double bedroom and the shower-room.

Head up stairs to a charming mezzanine area with sofa, chair and door to small decked area, and to the second double bedroom with TV and en suite bathroom with bath and power shower over the bath.

To one side, some decking with garden furniture below a wooded slope – a lovely place for bird watching.

An immaculate cottage steeped in history, a wonderful place in which to escape and convenient for visiting Truro and Falmouth.

About the location


Mylor Bridge 2.7 miles; Falmouth 5.8 miles; Truro 5.9 miles.

Perranarworthal is a small village in Cornwall set alongside the River Kennall. The village has a local inn, cricket ground and lovely church. Less than a mile away is Perranwell Station where you will find all the amenities you could need, with a Post Office, village store, and a local railway station from which you can travel to Truro and Falmouth. Mylor Bridge, just under 3 miles away, is a sought-after and picturesque village at the head of Mylor Creek that runs up from the Carrick Roads, the World’s third largest deep water harbour. Boats and sailing, wooded creeks, softly gliding water, riverside pubs and fabulous gardens epitomise the area. This friendly village has a superb selection of local shops (try the fresh fish!), a Post Office, a good pub and several restaurants within easy reach. The nearby harbour town of Falmouth with its exciting Maritime Museum and its castle, beaches and marina makes a great day out while the Cathedral city of Truro famous for its cobbled streets, theatre, museums and vibrant shopping centre should not be missed. Take the car, or a boat from Falmouth, for a trip up the stunningly beautiful Helford River and while there, call in at Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens for the horticultural treat of the year. The area is perfectly placed too for exploring the rugged cliffs, sandy coves and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula, also The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within an hour’s drive.
