Fern Cottage Apartment.

This "stunning," recently built apartment  sits comfortably at the end of a Tinners' cottage set within an acre of sheltered cottage gardens. It has beautiful pastoral views from the South facing lounge and the delightful bedroom overlooks its own secluded sun terrace at the rear.

Situated in a sylvan setting on the rural outskirts of  Lanner, one feels “far from the madding crowd” and yet a shop, pub and renowned bakery are only a short walk away.

One of this property’s greatest assets is the fact that it is adjacent to the historic Tresavean Tramway, which forms part of the Cornwall Mineral tramways project.  This is a haven for cyclists, horse riders and walkers. The rich mining areas of Cornwall’s central mining district now benefit from a 60km network of multi-activity trails. New trails have recently been created to link with existing routes such as the Coast to Coast trail, being mainly traffic free. The network offers people a unique opportunity to access a wide area that is rich in mining heritage and dramatic landscapes.

Of course, we cannot forget our glorious beaches!

Portreath, with its rugged cliffs, fantastic surf, famous pasty shop and pretty harbour is just four miles away. Other glorious North coast beaches within easy reach include Perranporth, Gwithian, Hayle and the unforgettable St Ives Bay and Godrevy Light house. Bring your binoculars to see the seals! A twenty minute drive to the east takes you to the historic port of Falmouth and The Carrick Roads, renowned for sailing. To the South is the beautiful Helford River with its secluded coves and wonderful gardens.

St Ives, with its abundance of art galleries, workshops and places to eat and drink is well worth a visit, as is Truro, our vibrant capital city, which boasts a stunning cathedral, theatre and an array of attractive shops.

Whatever the weather, this is an ideal location from which to explore our beloved Cornwall.

Bring your bikes and surfboards and live the experience!
