This cosy cottage for two sits close to the dramatic cliffs of West Cornwall with amazing views over the turbulent Atlantic Ocean. You can relax in the garden over a drink protected from the on shore breezes or take up the more exposed position and be rewarded by the spectacular seascape.
The cottage was once a workshop and is close to the Botallack Mine Count House that is one of the key locations of the Mining World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by reminders of its mining past with remains of old mine engines, two that once serviced the Crowns Shafts which run out under the sea for a mile.
These engine houses feature extensively in the 2015 Poldark series shown on the BBC.
Exploring on foot is made easy as the south west coast path is just metres away, following the contours of the cliffs, ideal for those sunset walks.
When in search of shops and cafes the small town of St Just is close by and along the scenic coast road are St Ives in one direction and Penzance in the other.

Parking: A private space 50 metres from the cottage along an even path.
Please note: As the area is steeped in mining history, most old shafts are fenced but guests should stay on the footpaths when walking in the area.
There is an unfenced pond in front of the cottage.
Offers: Free entry to all National Trust car parks on The Lizard on production of booking details.
Logs - Supply of seasoned beech and ash logs from a local National Trust plantation available: £5 for one night, £10 for two, £15 for three or £20 for an unlimited supply for the duration of your stay.

Cycle Hire: Porthleven Cycle delivers bicycles to your cottage and collects them at the end of your stay.
Due to the close vicinity of the steep cliffs, pond and mine shafts it is felt that this cottage is not suitable for children.
Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and youâ€™ll be set for life!
