“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.
“Super week at Scowbuds.”
Highly recommended. Description does not do the cottage justice. There is also a spacious downstairs cloakroom, really useful with multiple adults! Great care has been taken to make this cottage a home from home. Lovely plants in the back garden, a nice touch. Very well equipped kitchen although we only did breakfast, but used the washer a couple times!! very comfortable beds in spacious bedrooms. Really good shower in bathroom. Echo the comments about parking we have an estate and only just squeezed onto the available parking space. An additional bonus was finding Tuckingmill is in the centre of a historical world heritage site . The cottage is 3 mins from the A30 which places it ideally for going in any direction to discover Cornwall.
“We have stayed at this property before and this is why we returned this year it ...”
We have stayed at this property before and this is why we returned this year it is in a great location for going to other locations in Cornwall only minutes from the A30 and a lovely park nearby for walking your dog the house is modern with all the facilities you require and off road parking Camborne has supermarkets just up the road so shopping facilities are good we would certainly use 28 Scowbuds again
“The cottage was ideally located in a quiet street.”
Very clean and modern and near all local amenities. Also a short drive to coast and places of interest.. Would definately recommend.
“Lovey cottage - just what we wanted I would have liked a welcome book with details of nearest supermarkets, restaurants, WiFi password, recycling etc in to start with as well as simple instructions for the heating etc as this would have helped us.”
Oh and a tea pot and measuring jug would be good in the kitchen too! Thanks
“Parking stated as off road parking for two cars.”
They would have to be very small cars, I have a large estate and there was room for me, but would have been impossible to reverse out onto narrow lane if another car was present, even I had to shunt to get out due to cars parked outside the property on the very narrow lane. Property was excellent however , with everything you need to hand and more . Only four years old ithe cottage was Roomy , warm and comfortable, even in November. Location is ideal being just minutes from the A30 and five minutes from large Morrison's and Tescos. Internet access was brilliant a welcome addition. Would definitely book again.
“Private, clean and comfortable accommodation which was spacious.”
Off road parking, private garden and in a quiet location. Ideally situated (away from the hustle and bustle) for exploring Cornwall.
“Parking 2 vehicles is a bit problematic as the space is small and the man who lives opposite wants 24 hour access to the gates on his property.”
“It was our first time renting a cottage and we were delighted with the whole place.”
It was like home from home and we settled into the place right away. We hope to return to the same property soon.
“Lovely house very clean and comfortable.”
Well equipped kitchen. Quiet location. Everything we wanted. Will definitely stay again.
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!
