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.

We took my Mum and Dad who never know where they're staying, its always a surprise this place almost reduced my Mum to tears.It has been converted to a very high standard, everything has been thought off to make your stay perfect, the grocery hamper was excellent, fresh flowers in every room. The owners Jane and Gwyn are friendly and always happy to help if needed. If in the area again we would have absolutely no hesitation in booking again.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    This is a very high quality, well furnished and equipped townhouse set over 3 levels with a good view over the bay from the top floor master bedroom. We arrived on a bitterly cold February day and were very pleasantly relieved to find the house toasty warm. After our long journey the bottle of French wine kindly left for us was a lovely additional touch. Mike, the next door housekeeper, is friendly and helpful and keeps the house immaculately clean. The main shopping street (including a supermarket) is a few minutes away along with a good choice of pubs and restaurants. There is a short walk downhill to the front passing by an excellent Indian restaurant where we ate one evening. The 2 bathrooms are very modern and the style of the house is a lovely eclectic blend of french rustic chic and modernity. Although the house is in the centre and of the town it lies in a very quiet location where only the seagulls will occasionally disturb your peace. We loved the little courtyard whch would be perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months. We had a problem one morning trying to turn into the road from the alley as 2 cars had been illegally parked on double yellow lines opposite the exit. I wonder if the council could put some obstuction there to prevent this happening? As we have family in Penzance (the reason for our visit) we will look to rent this house for future visits. Linda was excellent at communicating with us and very helpful.
