Make a holiday cottage in Camborne your home away from home

The towns of Camborne and Redruth are separated by just two miles, nestled in a quiet section of Cornwall about 20 kilometres east of St. Ives. Once at the heart of the region’s mining industry, today they are popular with holidaymakers thanks to their close proximity to a number of attractions. Indeed, there are plenty of reminders of Cornwall’s mining heyday here – such as museums, old trails, and equipment – and staying in a Camborne or Redruth holiday cottage will place you close to several notable points of interest. HomeAway has a large number of Camborne holiday cottages available that offer all the convenience and comfort of home. Within easy reach of the beach and St. Ives, holiday cottages in Redruth and Camborne generally sleep four to six people, making them a good option for a family getaway.

Things to do

-Museums: The King Edward Mine Museum was originally established as a tin mill in 1904, and is now the oldest functioning mill of its kind in Cornwall; as such, visitors can learn about how ore is mined and treated to produce finished tin here. Mining was once the primary industry in the Camborne-Redruth area, and the museum provides a direct link to the region’s heritage. It is open each year from May to September.

-Beaches: St. Ives Bay is just a 15-minute drive from Camborne or Redruth and offers stunning views of the Celtic Sea. On a clear day, the entire bay is visible and there is a broad sandy beach that is very popular with tourists in the summer months. Trails and roads suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding surround the bay and offer beautiful views of the sea and Cornwall.

-Outdoor activities: The Great Flat Lode Trail is a famous path that circles around Carn Brea Hill. Passing through both Camborne and Redruth, the trail highlights artefacts and remnants from the region’s tin mining days. Visitors will also find the ruins of a 6,000-year-old Neolithic site at the top of Carn Brea Hill. The path is well suited to outdoor activities including walking, cycling, and horse riding.

-History: The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is located in Falmouth, about half an hour’s drive from Camborne holiday cottages. It’s situated right on the water and has its own lookout tower. This family-friendly destination offers a glimpse into Cornwall’s maritime roots. The main hall is full of wonderful examples of different types of boats and ships, whilst other rooms include hands-on activities that let visitors test their navigation and boating skills. The museum is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

-Wildlife: The Hayle Estuary is just 15 minutes from Camborne-Redruth and offers some of the best bird-watching opportunities in the country. All types of water birds visit the estuary throughout the year, including terns, oystercatchers, gulls, plovers, and curlews. A national cycle route surrounds the estuary, and it’s just a short walk from the main rail station in Hayle. Carnsew Pool is generally considered the best spot for bird watching.

Weather in Camborne-Redruth

The weather in Camborne-Redruth is very mild. Those wanting to enjoy the coastline and sunshine should visit in June or July when it's warmest and rain is not as frequent. High temperatures in the summer average in the high teens and low-20s, but drop down into the single digits by winter.

Travel to Camborne-Redruth

Camborne and Redruth are conveniently located right off the A30. From the east, the easiest way to reach the town by car is to take the M5 to Exeter, then change to the A30 and take the A3047 Camborne exit. It’s also possible to reach both towns by train, however, as they each have their own train station right in the centre of town. From the train station, a number of Redruth holiday homes are just a short walk away. Others can easily be reached by taxi.

Camborne Holiday Cottages & Apartments (300+)

Superb balcony, wonderful view, great location and careful attention from the owners.

4 of 5
The balcony and its superb view make 'Island Watch' a great holiday venue. The living area on the lower floor is small but just adequate for two. Very squeaky floor boards through the kitchen /lounge area caused us concern for the accommodation below, but the folk staying there were not bothered. The bath room and toilet is on an even smaller scale, but designed well and was fine. We were comfortable and we enjoyed being there. The bedroom on the higher level was more difficult. The information about the venue is clear that the bedroom is an attic/loft room and that was fine, but we found that the only place to stand upright was at the top of the stairs. I am not disabled but at 73 I found that to mount a step of between 18 and 20 inches to reach the drawers and hanging space for clothes was too difficult ..... and not even a rail or handle to grip for assistance! I think it needs a little re- planning. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and the location is excellent.

April Cottage is well equipped, clean, bright, tastefully furnished, with the most splendid view.

5 of 5
We stayed 7 nights at April Cottage at the end of June/early July 2017. I wanted somewhere comfortable, with wonderful views, within easy reach of Falmouth, so that we could wander in on foot for groceries and for options to eat out. April Cottage ticked all the boxes. We were not disappointed. The cottage is well equipped, clean, bright, and tastefully furnished...with the most splendid view.
