  • "The cottage is clean and well equipped."

    From a personal perspective the 2nd double room would benefit greatly by replacing the chair with a wardrobe and some of the party found the beds too hard but everyone has different requirements that is impossible for the hosts to cater for. The garden is quite a sun trap, has plenty of garden furniture and is a perfect space for pets, Although there is limited parking outside there is normally a disabled space available to load/unload your car. Due to the road being so busy, the only negative of the cottage bytheway, we used the car park. It is free but they do ask for a discretionary £1 donation for its upkeep. Chacewater is a lovely community and perfectly situated for the beaches of Perranporth and Chapel Porth, only a few miles from Truro and Redruth and Falmouth (our favourite place in Cornwall) is only 30 minutes away.

  • "Cottage was lovely, we had a great time."

    The parking and noise due to being on a main road, we’re the only inconvenience. But this we were made aware of prior to booking, and are completely unchangeable ,so I wouldn’t say this is a criticism of either the property or owner.

  • "Second time staying at the delightful Sea Glass cottage - great location to get to the coast, brilliant little house that fits for our family."

    Parking can be tricky but was fine this time. House is well presented, well resourced.

  • "The house was not particularly clean."

    Huge amounts of dust in places on the wooden floors (including someone else's hat, proving that it hadn't properly been cleaned), massive cobweb in the corner of the lounge and the carpet felt clammy all over. The level of mould on the bottom of the shower screen was disgusting.

    Firstly we would like to apologise for the Cobweb found in the front room and the shower screen. I have spoken with the cleaning company who have apologised profusely, it would appear they had a new member of staff doing the changeover and they hadn't checked up on them after it was completed. With regards to the dusty floorboards, they were hoovered and steam cleaned, but they are the original floorboards which are over 100 years old so do have a weathered cottage appearance. The carpets and all soft furnishings are all sprayed with Dettol all in one disinfectant as part of COVID-19 cleaning procedures after cleaning so this will explain why the carpet felt clammy. We also had the carpets deep cleaned the previous week because of a spillage by previous guests. Property Owner

  • "Really helpful owner was a pleasure to deal with."

    House was very clean, comfortable and in reach of everything we wanted to do. Yes, the road is noisy, but our kids slept through it without difficulty. Loved the bottle of prosecco and cream tea ingredients left out - a nice touch. Thanks!

  • "The cottage has beautiful decor and is so clean and fresh."

    The central Cornwall position is excellent for accessing all inland countryside, coast and beaches, north, south, east and west. The locals are very friendly and helpful. The town/village has a pub with food, fish and chip shop, general store and is very close to larger supermarkets. The road is busy at times but we didn’t notice it when in the house or garden. Parking was sometimes possible directly opposite or always just down the road in the free town/village car park. The welcome pack was so thoughtful, better than experienced before in other properties. All in all an excellent place to stay with our two small dogs and two young adult children. Felt easy and relaxing, better than home and we can highly recommend a stay here.

  • "The cottage is well equipped and is clean and has a fenced garden which is perfect for your dog."

    The cottage is however on a very busy main road, which we didn't appreciate how busy it was until the first morning when cars were literally parked in your front room whilst eating breakfast. The parking isn't ideal, its first come, first served on a busy road. The cottage is central to towns you wish to visit, well equipped but it is noisy on a night with the road and we found the beds quite uncomfortable. There is a pub, shop and bakery and a over priced daily market in the village. If you are Scottish and have Scottish notes beware they don't like you and will comment quite nastily on the fact you are giving them a legal note! Overall we enjoyed our stay but if we came again we would look for a cottage nearer the beach or one that wasn't on such a busy road, where drivers could watch you eating your breakfast whilst they waited to get by.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback, it will help us to improve future guest stays. We are having secondary internal double glazing fitted when the cottage is next free, which should help reduce the noise from the road through the village. The front room is fitted with its original shutters which do block out a lot of the noise when closed, and the dining room at the rear of the property is very quiet. We chose a firm mattresses for the cottage based on what most people prefer, so we can only apologise that these were not to your particular needs. A large Free car park can be found 500 yards down the road in the village, if none is available outside the cottage. Kind Regards Property Owner

  • "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! 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.

  • "Overall a great holiday the street parking is very dodgy and there is a lot of congested traffic right outside the cottage."

    As the weather wasn't great the log burner was lovely every evening although we had to get some extra fuel and lighters etc. Everywhere was very clean and we felt totally safe as far as covid 19 is concerned. A great central location to explore my places in cornwall if you are happy to drive 10 to 30 miles which we were.

  • "Sea Glass Cottage is a lovely house in Chacewater."

    Our first impression was that we'd gladly book the house again - it's well decorated, clean, well kitted out with more than enough space for our family of five. It was a refreshing base for our holiday - which was mostly trips to the beach, but also a good place to spend our the one rainy day we had. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and hilly with endless footpaths to explore from the front door. The great north coast beaches are within easy reach.

About the location


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.
