    “Second visit to Magpies, this time under trying circumstances.”

    Gill kept us fully informed throughout. Cottage felt very safe and the area was just what we needed. Plenty of walking together with good meals out.

The property

Redruth 3 miles.

Ideally located for touring all of Cornwall with easy access to both north and south coasts, this superb, detached, large, luxurious, spacious cottage is set in a small hamlet, just outside of St Day, in an area that was once known as the richest square mile in the world due to the famous copper mines.

As soon as you arrive at Magpies Cottage you appreciate the luxury, spaciousness and peace and quiet that is on offer here.

Enter around the back of the house into the large porch and left through the cosy snug, with old fire place and ornamental stove, where the stairs take you to the three bedrooms , one a super king-size double bedroom which can be two full-size single beds on request and also boasts an en-suite basin and WC, a room with a super king-size bed that can also be two full-size single beds on request and a standard double bedroom.

Downstairs is where you will find the sitting room, with its huge comfy sofas, which leads out to the conservatory looking out on to the lovely garden.

Also downstairs you will find the luxurious family bathroom with underfloor heating, the well-fitted kitchen and adjoining utility room, the dining room with a superb ornate table and chairs.

Some members of your party will love spending time in the games room where they’ll find a full-size pool table and table-top football.

Outside at this cottage is perfect for relaxing and enjoying alfresco dining, with a choice of tables and chairs and a large lawn ideal for children’s games.

The village of St Day is at the heart of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, a world heritage site which also includes nearby St Agnes, Chapel Porth and Porthtowan, all three of which offer superb beaches.

With bike hire available at the end of the valley, two riding stables close by as well as clay pigeon shooting and the Poldice Valley, ideal for walking, this location is perfect for a family or for couples who want to get out and about during their holiday.
