  • "Our return visit to Carpenters Cabin didn’t disappoint."

    This was our second week at Carpenters Cabin this year, having stayed there in March. We were very fortunate to have an excellent week’s weather therefore were able to sit out on the veranda to enjoy dinks in the sunshine in its lovely peaceful setting. The cabin was still spotlessly clean and we were welcomed with another pack of goodies from the helpful owners Michelle and Wayne. We would have no hesitation in recommending Carpenter Cabin to our friends as its in a great position to explore Cornwall and may well return again in the future.

  • "Ideal base for day trips."

    Very clean throughout and maintained. Despite having an open space kitchen, the snug room was a bonus. Convenient parking space at entrance. Owner Michelle was very approachable with any quiries and also left us a welcome pack to start us off. Impressive cabin all round. Wouldn't hesitate to return in future.

  • "Carpenters Cabin is far more than its name would suggest."

    It’s a little gem of a holiday home tucked away in a lovely quiet setting away from the road. The cabin which was spotlessly clean. has a bright open plan kitchen and dining area complete with a TV. But it also has a lovely separate cosy ‘snug’ that has an electrically adjustable sofa where you can watch a second TV in total comfort. A good sized bedroom and spacious bathroom complete this well designed cabin. It’s very helpful owners Michelle and Wayne, who live on site, provided a comprehensive welcome pack of goodies! It is ideally positioned for visiting both North and South Cornwall and we are looking forward to returning soon, as we have another booking in June.

  • "Idealy situated, to travel North, South, East or West."

    Just a perfect spot. Easy to pop to Aldi or M & S. A very private comfortable cabin, and spotless. The welcome pack was a nice touch. Thank you to our friendly host. We would definitely recommend, and visit again. John and Jean

  • "A very pleasant place to stay until a petrol crisis comes along."

    As its quite remote compared with staying in a town you will need your own transport. There is no bus service and its a long walk on a narrow road into Redruth. The petrol shortage ruined our holiday and we left to go home early before our tank ran dry. The chalet is well appointed and comfortable, the owners are very pleasant and helpful. If we stayed again we would take our electric bicycles. My preference would be to have a dishwasher in rented accommodation .

  • "Our stay at Carpenters Cabin has been brilliant, we did not want to leave!"

    ! Look forward to returning in the future. The owner of the cabin introduced herself upon arrival and gathered a welcome pack that was so helpful with us not having stayed in the area before. The cabins location is perfect as it is quite and rural but also half way between Newquay and St Ives (25 mins drive) which was great for me and my partner as these are the areas we planned on visiting, the walks near the cabin were beautiful and very handy that there is an Aldi located less than 5 mins away in the car. Thank you very much for our stay at I will be recommending back at home for future stays in Cornwall.

Tucked away in the picturesque countryside of Redruth, on the beautifully-maintained grounds of the owner's home, rests this delightful single-storey wooden lodge, Carpenter's Cabin.

Perfectly positioned within easy reach of the dramatic Cornish coastline, Carpenter's Cabin offers an idyllic escape for a romantic getaway for two.

Pass through the gates and drive the short distance along the track, where two sought-after off-road parking spaces will greet you at the front of the property, leading you up a step to the decked area, inviting you to unwind with a leisurely seat on a bench, enveloped in the sounds of birdsong.

Stepping inside, you'll be delighted by the traditional interior, boasting rustic wooden features and flooded with natural lighting, providing a truly remarkable Scandinavian-style log cabin experience.

Head through to the amply-equipped kitchen where the designated chef can prepare a romantic meal for two, serving your culinary delights at the intimate dining table before retiring to the neighbouring snug to settle down for the evening in front of the television.

When sleep calls, rest your head in the double bedroom, where the traditional character of the cabin is maintained with the charming wooden furnishings, offering a whimsical and romantic setting.

In the morning, prepare for a new day with a revitalizing rinse in the spacious walk-in shower, before stepping outside to enjoy a steaming mug of coffee in the tranquility of the surrounding greenery.

Head off on foot to explore your surroundings, taking the stroll into the heart of Redruth, where you'll be spoilt for choice with the range of shopping opportunities and eateries on offer, along with an exciting selection of attractions worth visiting, including the National Trust's East Pool Mine, where you can join the guided tour through the engine house and boiler room of an 18th century working mine, and the museum of Kresen Kernow.

Within easy reach is the marvellous designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, St. Agnes Heritage Coast, home to breath-taking stretches of golden sand, including Chapel Porth and the award-winning, Porthtowan Beach, where you can enjoy an invigorating dip in the waters, or experience dolphin spotting atop the surrounding cliffs.

Further afield is the bustling University town of Falmouth, where you'll find a wider selection of shops and eateries alongside a vibrant party scene, as well as a host of sights and attractions, including the National Maritime Museum and the artillery fort of Pendennis Castle, constructed by Henry VIII.
