    “We had a lovely holiday in Scowbuds.”

    The cottage is well equipped right down to an iron and ironing board. Kitchen cupboards are well stocked with utensils.

    The cottage is well equipped right down to an iron and ironing board. Kitchen cupboards are well stocked with utensils. The open plan is very family friendly and the back yard is a definite bonus. The downstairs loo isn’t mentioned in the bio but it was a definite bonus for a pregnant lady and a house full of teens. The road in and Parking takes a little getting used to but we managed to park an estate car with little issue. It was a great central base for exploring Cornwall.

The property

Ideally located for touring both the North and South coasts of Cornwall, this comfortable, well-furnished semi-detached cottage is situated in a quiet road in Tuckingmill near Camborne.

The cottage opens into the open plan living area, which has a well-equipped kitchen leading out onto the quiet patio, plus a dining and sitting area.

The patio is an ideal to spot to relax at any time of day, whether you’re planning your adventures over breakfast, or enjoying the last bit of sunshine with a glass of wine in the evening.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms and one single, making it a wonderful retreat for families, couples or groups of friends wishing to spend some quality time together.

The village of Tuckingmill consists of many miners cottages, as it was formerly at the heart of the Cornish mining industry, brought back to life by the Poldark TV series.

Whilst steeped in history, the village now serves as a great base for visiting the many well-known attractions that this area of Cornwall has to offer.

It is also wonderful for discovering the lesser known, such as the Tehidy Country Park with 250 acres of peaceful woods and lakes to explore, together with a cafe and lovely picnic areas.

For beach lovers, just over three miles away is the village of Portreath and its pretty, sandy beach, popular with families, surfers and in particular, body boarders.

With several golf courses close by, as well as horse riding opportunities, the daily choice of activities is endless!

For those looking for a more relaxed, chilled-out break, the famous dunes of Hayle and Gwithian are close by and perfect for lazy days, whilst the charming, lively seaside town of St Ives is also within easy reach, with many shops, restaurants and galleries, as well as lots of boat trips leaving from its busy harbour.

You will always find plenty to do and see in this lovely area, making it an ideal base for a Cornish holiday, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Camborne 1 mile; Portreath 3.5 miles; St Ives 14.5 miles.

The village of Tuckingmill once sat in the heart of Cornwall’s mining industry, one mile from the town of Camborne and a short drive from the Portreath Heritage Coast. Now, the village is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful region, with both the south and north coasts of Cornwall easy to reach. There is a small selection of shops and a couple of pubs in this quiet little village, and lots to see and do within a short drive. Visit Heartlands, a Cornish mining heritage site, and spend a day exploring The Tuckingmill Valley Park, which has a bespoke skate park, walking trails, play facilities and creative art displays. The Red River runs through the park, named for its colour, which is caused by the minerals from the mines. Wrapped around St Ives Bay, the seaside town of St Ives itself and Carbis Bay, a long, sleepy stretch of sand, are an easy drive away. St Ives is a hub of activity, with many shops, restaurants and galleries lined along the harbour and through along its winding high street. Pick up delicious fudge, sea shell collections and quirky gifts for those at home, or enjoy an ice-cream as you watch the boats bob in the harbour, from where you can also enjoy a boat trip to Seal Island. With so much to see, do and discover from Tuckingmill, it really is the perfect holiday destination for all!
