Description

This beautiful property is surrounded by peaceful rural landscape with delightful coastal walks nearby.


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.

    A restful cottage with views of beautiful woodland, hedges and shrubs. A good location for visiting the best parts of Cornwall from Lands end, the Lizard, St Ives, Falmouth and the surf beaches of north Cornwall. I am interested in geology and this cottage was an excellent base for the old tin mines around Redruth and down to St Just.
