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.

Blissfully wonderful

5 of 5
We have in the past, been so disappointed with other cottages, in Cornwall with other letting companies and individuals, but this was just blissfully wonderful, exactly how a cottage rental should be. From the moment we arrived it felt like home, Phil is a fantastic owner and laid on a cream tea and wine, after taking time to explain everything quite late in the day, we just stood and looked at each other and could belive How wonderful it was. Then to find one of the most comfortable beds, this was heaven. This is a perfect location for solitude and quiet, parking a bit hit n miss, and certainly not for unfit people. The cottage was fantastically equipped with absolutely everything you need, kitchen was wonderful and we cooked a few times again with a well equipped. The outside provided a peaceful place for a nice glass of chilled wine. It's easy to reach the shops and harbour, albeit a steep hill there n back, but the benefits easily out way this. Porthleven has some very fine eating. And drinking places after a hard day on the beach, notably Sea Breeze at the bottom of the hill, just fantastic but book. I could rave on about the cottage the owner and porthleven as not had a blissful holiday like this in years, and definitely will be going back. Thanks again Phil. LinoLen n Sandra

Lovely cosy lodge in a superb peaceful location. Well equipped with an attractive seaside theme.

This is our second stay at Ansome Lodge-this time with our adult son who is soon off to Canada. We all agree that it is so peaceful and relaxing,particularly with the woodland setting. It is a great base to explore Cornwall and so cosy to return to at the end of the day. We only stayed for 3 days this time,but managed to visit Kynance Cove (our favourite beach),walked to Lizard Point and back, St.Ives and Carbis Bay. Also went to Godrevy and saw the seal colony on the beach and had drinks in the beach bar at Perranporth. The lodge was as delightful as we had remembered it and we will hopefully return again for future holidays. Thank you Victoria for a lovely stay, Nick,Paula and Joe (Worcester)
