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.

Perfect location, pet friendly and property is stunning

5 of 5
This is not the first time we have used an OwnersDirect property but it is the first time I feel the necessity to share just HOW GOOD this property is. We stayed here over new years 2017, taking our two cocker spaniels with us. We arrived and the owners has considerately made slight changes to accommodate our dogs, an additional gate made it secure to leave the door open and give them the option to go into the garden without supervision. Going into the kitchen we found the dogs had been accommodated with a water bowl and treats, it's these small things that make a rental just that little bit more special and also highlights the thoughtfulness of the owners. There is a field opposite we could use to give them a run if needed prior to going out for the day or at the end of the day when the light had gone. The owners have tastefully decorated and furnished the property to a very, very high standard and whilst we were there it felt very much like a home from home. The location is perfect, with or without pets. The reservoir is on your doorstep and although we had quite awful weather it did not deter us from the 6 mile walk with the dogs and a good pub at the end of it (which is about 200m from your front door). Everywhere is accessible to you, 5/6 miles to beaches and about 10 miles from Falmouth. Supermarkets are only a few miles away, family butcher even closer - what more could you ask for if you just want to get away from it all. Back to the property, the pictures although accurate do not give it justice - the kitchen is large and fully equipped and the bathroom is absolutely luxurious offering free standing bath, large walk-in shower and double basins. Last but not least, the owners are great - I need say no more than that. We would go back tomorrow and plan to return in the summer because we can see the additional benefits it would afford us if we had good weather. If Amanda and Charlie are reading this review, thank you so very much for just being so laid back and accommodating as hosts. Tracey and Andy (plus the dogs of course)

Lovely peaceful location, charming accommodation and helpful hosts

5 of 5
A lovely, peaceful location with beautiful views from The Hayloft. Interior is charming with wood floors and furniture, clean and modern but lots of character. Crisp cotton bed linen and plenty of fluffy towels made a very comfortable stay. The children loved feeding the pig and chickens and we enjoyed the fresh eggs from the ducks for breakfast! Thank you Kate and Kevin for a perfect relaxing break.
