The property

The perfect place for a relaxing getaway with friends or family, Medlar Cottage can be found nestled just 3 miles from the beautiful Cornish coast and the sandy beaches of Porthtowan and Portreath, the ideal base for walking, exploring, and adventuring.

As you pull onto the private property where the cottage sits, you will be greeted by stunning scenery on the acres of land that surround.

Take a break on the patio area from unpacking with a glass of wine, while the children search for tadpoles in the pond or sit amongst the orchard in the evenings to unwind in peaceful, pretty settings.

As you walk in to this lovely, thoughtfully restored cottage, you are guaranteed to be stunned by the beauty that it withholds inside, a blatant Cornish characterised property with over 200 years of mining history behind it, it’s a historical wonder offering you charm both inside and out.

Head to the kitchen to whip up a breakfast before the day really kicks off, with large tiled floors, crisp white and wooden furnishings, and a double oven to cater for all the family’s nutritious needs, it’s a bright white room perfect for beginning and ending the day in.

Head to the dining room where you can find a magnificent wood burner, within a large feature stone wall, it definitely adds to the character of the property as well as ensuring that you’re snug in the winter months will munching on the family favourite foods at the dining table.

There are two sitting rooms within the property, one offering more of a ‘snug’ aura, perfect for relaxing in the evening with a book or your partner, and a larger area to fit the whole family where you can gather to watch the TV together before starting tomorrow’s adventure.

Carry the kids up to bed where they can sleep comfortably within the twin room while you sleep close by in one of two double bedrooms.

You won’t have to worry about racing to the bathroom in the morning to beat the family madness, as it offers a spacious area with an impressive claw-foot bath and separate shower, so the kids can bathe whilst you wash your hair ready for the day ahead.

The local area offers plenty of opportunities to explore the history of the village, with the Cornwall Gold and Tolgus Mill within walking distance alongside Tolgus Tin and Cornish Goldsmith, there’s plenty to explore as a family to learn about the past of Cornwall in fun and inclusive ways.

Further out you can find more beautiful scenes, such as Land’s End and The Lizard Heritage Coast, this property offers the perfect base for exploring the landscapes and history of Cornwall.

About the location


Truro 14 miles; St Ives 15 miles.

With its sheltered harbour, beautiful Portreath was, in the 1800s, a hive of activity and industry as a major tin-exporting port. Today, the village attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 14 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
