Property Description

Mowie Cottage (ref W42873) and Mowie Barn (ref W43300) are great hideaway retreats situated adjacent to the owners’ home, in the small and peaceful rural hamlet of Stennack, just outside the village of Troon, a Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Mowie Barn is a semi-detached, level barn conversion whilst Mowie Cottage is a single-storey, detached property, approached via six steps. These delightful properties are surrounded by a picturesque rural landscape of open fields and woodland, with numerous local walks, making it a magnet for dog walkers and ramblers alike. They are located just a 10-minute drive from the A30, which offers excellent access to both the north and south coasts. There’s a wealth of tourist attractions situated throughout Cornwall including many National Trust properties, monuments and gardens, pretty fishing villages and harbours, beautiful beaches, endless walks with unbridled scenery, fine dining and traditional public houses.
A stone’s throw away is the former mining town of Camborne, now a bustling and vibrant town with an array of pubs, shops and restaurants. The local village of Troon is steeped in Cornish mining history with abandoned ivy covered engine houses that at one time serviced the areas thriving tin and copper industry. The beautiful parish church of Treslothan is a short walk down the road, as is the 5000-year-old Giant’s Quiot that now attracts a gathering that celebrate the Summer solstice. Troon itself has a supermarket and a pharmacy, whilst Camborne town centre and the Heartlands Cultural Experience are both a mere 5-minute drive away. The ruins of Carn Brea Castle and Bassett Monument are a short walk away either with or without the dog, and once at the top, the view over Cornwall stretches for miles. Archaeological digs have revealed this area to date back to Neolithic times and later Iron Age occupation.
The harbour at Portreath was built to service the flourishing ore industry centred around the Camborne and Redruth area, and by 1827 was said to be the most important port in Cornwall. The Portreath Tramway that linked the harbour to the copper mines at Scorrier and St Day was the first railway to be built in Cornwall. Today, they form the Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast cycle way and footpath that lead walkers and cyclists in to the very heart of Cornwalls industrial mining past. One of the routes, known as the Great Flat Lode Trail, is a circular trail that takes in Carn Brea. A further connection with the Basset Monument is Tehidy Country Park, once owned by the Basset family, the estate was purchased by Cornwall County Council and today the grounds are open to the public for great walks, and a variety of events are held throughout the year.
A 15-minute drive takes you to the glorious, golden sandy beach at Hayle which stretches for miles, whilst St Ives is world famous for its quaint and charm, and is a haven for artists and visitors alike. The coastal path along this stretch of Cornwall are nothing short of exhilarating, with ocean views that have been described as simply stunning, whilst the resident colony of about 30 seals at Godrevy are a year-round attraction not to be missed. Helston, 10 miles, was originally a thriving port, however, the river silted up over the years. Where the river joins the sea is now Cornwalls largest lake. Horse riding nearby. Beach 2 miles. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile. Please note: These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 4 guests.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very well equipped & kept, quiet cottage. Just outside of Camborne, so if have car, very central for touring Cornwall. Sept 2012.
  2. Lovely warm welcome from the owners, very well equipped and comfortable. The little extras make all the difference like the welcome pack with essential food items ie tea, coffee, milk and bread. Also, washing up liquid and tea towels, oven gloves etc. Lovely views from the living room, comfortable large bed. Excellent in every way, so would recommend this to any couple looking for a quiet place to stay. Nice to have a Co-op supermarket very nearby in the village. June 2012.
  3. The property had everything anyone would need for a self catering holiday. A sign at the gate which could be seen from the road would help find the property. There is a sign on the gate but as it is left open for visitors to drive in, it can’t be seen from the road. April 2012.
  4. A very enjoyable weeks’ stay in Mowie Cottage. The cottage is superb. All one could wish for. Hope to return soon. Nov 2011.
  5. Wonderful comfortable cottage, home from home. The host was excellent and her welcome pack really good. Oct 2011.
  6. Being down in the valley bottom it is out of direct weather, and is therefore a quiet, secluded location. A good view of the tree surrounded garden is had through a nice picture window to the main room. The open aspect of the garden makes it a draw for many birds. The location is virtually central to ALL of the southwest tip of Cornwall. July 2011.
  7. Very well equipped and comfortable. Aug 2010.
  8. Home from home. We were able to come and go as we pleased, a relaxing break. July 2010.
  9. What a beautiful cottage. It was out first trip to Cornwall and we were delighted we chose Mowie Cottage. The cream tea was very thoughtful on arrival and the owner was so kind and helpful. The cottage was a great base for getting around with plenty of beaches within 30 minutes drive. Thank you so much for making our holiday so special. June 2010.
  10. Nice cottage in a semi-rural location very convenient for visiting many attractions. May 2010.

  18. A lovely, clean, well-appointed base to come back to each night. The thoughtfulness of the owners to provide cleaning materials including dishcloths and sponges, waste bin bags, kitchen soap, etc. Also salt, pepper, coffee for the coffee-maker were all very much appreciated. It was a very pleasant home to be in and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone, except perhaps anyone who is infirm as the steps to the property may be awkward. July 2009.
  19. Owners are very friendly and helpful, but not ’pushy’ at all. Location is very good as a central point for visiting local attractions (beaches, towns, walks etc). Very comfortable, well decorated and furnished. July 2009.
  20. Accommodation was perfectly appointed, the owners have thought of everything excellent. June 2009.
