“Excellent facilities and location”
Reviewed 2 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We had a wonderful week at Cherry Cottage, Camborne. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. Andy greeted us on our arrival and was there to say goodbye.
The cottage was spotlessly clean, towels provided and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, where we found a lovely basket with coffee, tea, sugar and Cornish shortbread to welcome us.
The bed was comfortable and a sink in two of the bedrooms is a bonus. We were blessed with a sunny week and it was handy to wash out odd items and hang them on the line, pegs are provided.
The lounge is great, with the most comfortable suite to relax in and a good size TV for the evening. Patio doors open onto a little terrace with table and chairs and a private garden.

The cottage is well placed for visiting the extreme south west and to give you an idea -
On our first day there to recover from our long drive we spent a lovely morning visiting the excellent King Edward Mining Museum, which is run by volunteers.

We spent Monday in nearby Truro, enjoying a bit of retail therapy (me) and visiting the wonderful Cathedral. We had intended visiting the Cornwall Museum in Truro but found it closed on Mondays. The café was open though.

On Tuesday we Drove to Merazion and walked over the Causeway to St Michaels Mount. The tide was in by the time we were ready to leave so we took the boat back to shore.

On Wednesday we parked at Levant Saltings and got the scenic train ride into St Ives. I would strongly advise this as there is limited parking in St Ives and the views are wonderful. The train travels between St Erth and St Ives, so you could board there. It cost £2.80 to park and £4 each for the return train ticket. Well worth it. The train runs every 30 minutes and you can pick up a time table at the stations.
That afternoon we drove to Lands End along the coast road. Leaving the car park we headed for the lovely coastal path on a circular walk, stopping at the “first and last house” café for refreshments.

On Thursday we drove to Penzance where we were distinctly underwhelmed. Fair enough, it’s a port, with regular ferries to the Scilly Isles. Needless to stay there was nothing to keep us there so we headed off to the Lizard Peninsular. We parked in the NT car park then did a circular walk along the cliffs as far as the lovely Chapel Porth Cove, before heading back to the car.

On our last day we drove to St Agnes Head and after a chat with the really nice Coast Guard, we drove to the Wheal Coates car park and headed for the cliffs for a circular walk to see Wheal Coates Mine. It is amazing to see the old mine buildings hugging the coast.
On our way back to Camborne we stopped briefly at Cornwall Gold. It was an unplanned visit as we just happened to be passing by. There is a large room selling jewellery and a little tin processing plant which you can look round at leisure. The café is expensive and I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit it, though there were coaches in the car park.

Our destination as we returned was National Trust East Pool mine, just a couple of miles from our cottage. It is situated over two sites, with a Morrisons built in between! On the second site there is a huge beam-pumping engine which was working on the first site the highlight was going along a tunnel and looking up the centre of the huge chimney. Next door is the Cornish Pantry, selling wonderful cornish pasties!!

Camborne itself is not particularly pretty, it was the centre of a mining area, but there are some lovely old buildings and within walking distance of the cottage there is a railway station, buses, supermarket, bakers, restaurants and cafes. The Wetherspoons in the old John Francis Bassett Hotel building is cheap and cheerful and welcome on our first night, when we didn't wasn't to cook or venture far.

Of course the cottage is well placed for visiting places to its North, but we had already visiting those areas in the past.

“Like coming home”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The welcome was warm and inviting. The place feels like one is coming home to a wonderfully presented house with everything that is needed for a home stay let alone a holiday. The home is clean, spacious and very well situated. The high street is 5 minutes away by car but is easily in walking distance. The train is just down the road for easy convenience but not heard. There is a Library at the bottom of the road with internet facility if you do not have your own. Camborne is a lovely town and would not hesitate to return at anytime of the year.

This delightful bungalow has to be one of, if not the cleanest places Ive stayed in. Immaculate. Had a lovely feel to it, also very quiet and comfortable. Very friendly none invasive owners. Good location to surrounding tourist attractions by car, all being less than half an hour drive. Good value for money. I would certainly return just to purely stay in the bungalow. Highly recommend
