Luxury Grade 2 listed Tin Miners Cottage, built in the 1700's and sympathetically renovated to maintain its old world charm. Idyllically situated along a Cornish Lane, it's only accessible by foot or a very small car.
2 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms - sleeps 4
Pubs, restaurants, and shops are in walking distance while the Cottage itself delivers authentic luxury, far reaching vistas, wonderful sunsets, peace and quiet. The ambiance and the outdoor spaces are gorgeous and our local beach, Trevaunance Cove, is a one mile walk. Wrens Nook is good for couples and families (with kids).
Live like Poldark for a week! This is true Poldark country and Wrens Nook is an original Tin Miners Cottage built in the 1700's. It's got loads of original features including the original sash windows, cupboards, stairs and wood panelling.
There is a double bed in the original 1700's bedroom with a marvellous ensuite attached. There is a really good quality adult double bunk bed and mattresses in the room where the Tin Miners many children used to sleep. Recent renovations included a fabulous garden room, a new kitchen and a smart downstairs bathroom and utility room.
We keep all 11 Poldark novels at the cottage and St Agnes was the inspiration for St Anns, the village in the Winston Graham books. Read one while you are at the cottage.
Idyllically situated on a narrow and twisting Cornish Lane that was built for the odd horse and cart, you park on Goonown Lane and begin your holiday as you mean to go on. Walk down this lovely Lane towards the Cottage and you will immediately begin to relax as you see horses, sheep and cows grazing and you take in the long ranging views. It's a holiday where you can get that fit bit working for you! You can walk to pubs, shops and the beach so Wrens Nook offers you a different way of life.
There is a small parking space for a tiny car at the front of the house but driving down the lane is not for the fainthearted. It is 5ft 5in places and many cars get stuck!
Please note: The Housekeeper, Rachael, will meet and greet you or arrival and help you with your luggage. She will show you around the house and answer any questions that you may have.
The area is rural/coastal Cornwall with quiet lanes leading down to Trevaunance Cove. You can join the coastal path here for a brisk walk toward Perranporth to the other way toward Chapel Porth. Another wonderful walk is from the cottage up to the Beaacon and then down toward Trevaunance Cove stopping at the Driftwood for a pint of their home brew. National Trust Houses abound. Our favourite is Trerice. St Agnes has plenty of village shops and Truro is a wonderful City for shopping - and visit the cathedral as it is stunning.
