    “We were pleased with the cottage in general- clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated, a sofa I didn’t feel apprehensive sitting on (holiday cottages quite often have sofas that give you the heebies, this one was fine!”

    ). It was actually larger than I had anticipated-we booked fairly last minute so didn’t pour over ever detail and this came as a pleasant surprise. The welcome pack was really thoughtful and appreciated-we had booked a shopping delivery but realised we had forgotten to have tea and milk in the house on arrival so great to be able to have a cup of tea after a long journey. Bottle of Prosecco and scones with jam and cream went down a treat too-thank you! ...

The welcome pack was really thoughtful and appreciated-we had booked a shopping delivery but realised we had forgotten to have tea and milk in the house on arrival so great to be able to have a cup of tea after a long journey. Bottle of Prosecco and scones with jam and cream went down a treat too-thank you! Parking was pretty hit and miss and did cause some frustration but not the end of the world. The traffic outside the living room window is intense, but it’s Cornwall, so it eases off at night and we were up and out early most days. We booked this cottage because of its central location as we had planned lots of day trips and it served us well, keeping all our journeys around an hour or less. Beds were all fine: comfortable, spotless bed linen, good quality towels. Our youngest enjoyed the bunk bed shelves so he didn’t lose his toys down the side like at home. A cafetière would be a good addition, along with some kids cutlery, but otherwise the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and everything was easy to use. Couldn’t figure out the radiators for the life of me despite the manual but fortunately it wasn’t too cold. All in all, a really tasteful, comfortable cottage that is well maintained and in a convenient location if you plan to travel around Cornwall during your stay. Thank you to our hosts.

The property

This delightful mid-terrace property is located in the centre of the village of Chacewater, near Truro in Cornwall.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, it perfectly blends contemporary style with traditional character touches and is ideal for a family or group of six wanting to explore the city of Truro as well as the picturesque coastline of north Cornwall.

Enter the property into the hallway, where there is storage for shoes and hooks for coats, and enter the cosy sitting room, with a choice of two sofas to relax onto, while enjoying the warmth of the woodburning stove and tuning into your favourite shows on the provided TV.

The dining room has a stunning feature fireplace and shelving in the alcoves filled with books to cosy up with and enjoy, while the table is set for six guests to enjoy a home-cooked meal together, prepared in the contemporary kitchen, with cream cabinets and wooden worktops, equipped with all of the necessary appliances, a Belfast sink and a handy dishwasher.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms; two spacious doubles and a children's bunk room, each with exposed wooden flooring, ample storage space and a lovely decor of grey and white hues, all serviced by the family bathroom, which offers a choice of shower over bath, so you can decide how you'd prefer to get ready for each day.

Outside there is ample roadside parking available, while the rear garden is accessed through the kitchen, offering a courtyard area with furniture, a large lawn with a decked area with more furniture for outdoor dining, as well as two sun loungers, where you can lie back and soak up the sun on a summer's day.

Chacewater village centre is a short walk away and offer a pub, garden centre, selection of shops and a fish and chip shop, while the city of Truro is just over five miles away, with a wider selection of shops, pubs and eateries, as well as its stunning Victorian cathedral and Royal Cornwall Museum, and you can enjoy scenic strolls along the River Truro or around Victoria Gardens, while almost a third of Truro is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Venture north towards the coast and find the small village of Porthtowan, with its sandy beach, just over five miles away.

From here, venture north along the South West Coast Path towards the St Agnes Heritage Coast to find the unspoilt Chapel Porth Beach, backed by dramatic cliffs and caves, as well as various lookout points and observatories, offering incredible coastal views, while the village of St Agnes offers many eateries and shops to browse, along with St Agnes Beacon and Blue Hills Tin, both worth a visit.

Head south along the coastal path towards the fishing village of Porthreath and its lovely beach, and enjoy discovering the spectacular cliffs, headland trails and fantastic surfing beaches of the Godrevy Heritage Coast.

With so many opportunities to discover the coastline and glorious beaches of north Cornwall make Sea Glass Cottage your charming, contemporary base to return to after a day filled with adventure.

About the location

CHACEWATER

Redruth 4.8 miles; Truro 5.2 miles; Portreath 6.8 miles; Falmouth 11 miles.

The Cornish village of Chacewater is situated just five miles from Truro, between Truro and Redruth in Cornwall. The village lies in the centre of what once was a great mining district, producing more copper and tin than anywhere else in the world. The village and sandy beach of Portreath are a short drive away and from Chacewater, both the north and south coastlines of Cornwall can be explored, with their unspoilt beaches and rugged coastal walking trails stretching for miles, ideal for walkers, bathers and surfers. Truro is Cornwall’s only city and has a magnificent cathedral, the Royal Cornwall Museum and the theatre and concert venue, the Hall for Cornwall, as well as a number of shops, pubs and restaurants. In Falmouth you will find the third largest natural harbour in the world, where you can take boat trips up the Carrick Roads, safe beaches, the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, which was built by Henry VIII and is the town’s most popular attraction. Fans of classic cars will enjoy a visit to Perranwell Station where you can hire a Morgan car for the day. Nearby, in the Bissoe Valley, is Bissoe Bike Hire. Hire a bike for the day and enjoy the sights of the old mining works and beautiful wooded valleys as you cycle coast to coast from Portreath to Devoran, or just enjoy a snack in the café. Visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the National Trust owned Trelissick and Glendurgan Gardens, as well as the 26-acre sub-tropical garden of Trebah and the Eden Project, all of which can be reached easily in the car. A short trip on the King Harry Ferry will take you to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, which is well worth a visit. Chacewater is the perfect Cornish holiday base, with something to please everyone within easy driving distance.
