About the property

3 Bedroom 1830s Cottage near the Eden Project, Clay Trails and Heligan Gardens

This charming Grade II listed cottage was originally built in the 1830s as a mill workers cottage, constructed with stone from the local quarry, and has also retained a number of original features. Set in a quiet hamlet near to St Austell and with easy access to the A30 the cottage is perfect for couples, friends, and families and provides an excellent home-from-home from which to explore Cornwall.

The kitchen and bathroom have been recently refurbished to a high specification. The kitchen is fully equipped and benefits from an induction hob, electric fan oven, built-in dishwasher, washing machine, and fridge freezer. There are two wood burning stoves in the open fireplaces and downstairs underfloor heating as well as electric heaters in the bedrooms and an electric towel rail in the bathroom. The cottage has two good sized double bedrooms with two single beds in the third bedroom, which will comfortably sleep 4 adults and 2 children or 5 adults. A cot and high chair are available for free on request.

The cottage has ample private parking for 2-3 cars. There is an external area for drying clothes and sitting out with table and chairs with a stream to the front of the property. Bicycles and surf boards can be securely stored around the back of the property or in the shed.

The rural setting is convenient for access to the clay trails for cycling, running, and walking with the China Clay museum (Wheal Martyn) a 5 minute stroll. Local pub, restaurant, and museum café serving good homemade food all within walking distance. Beaches on the south coast are a 10 minute drive with the nearest sandy beach Par Sands approximately 15 minutes drive and the famous surfing beaches at Newquay are 25 minutes drive.

The Eden Project is a 10 minutes drive or 30 minute cycle ride. The market town of St Austell is a 5 minute drive or a very pleasant 45 minute walk along dedicated footpaths. The nearest supermarkets and some restaurants and pubs are in St Austell. For further shopping, bars, restaurants, and clubs Truro is a 30-40 minute drive or there are regular trains from St Austell train station.

The Clay Trails are literally on the doorstep and provide a fantastic way to explore this part of Cornwall on foot or bike and are very popular with dog walkers. I am always happy to provide advice or suggestions on things to see and do in the local area as I lived in the cottage for over 4 years.

Children and well-behaved pets welcome. Unfortunately not suitable for wheelchair access due to the narrow doorways.

About Suzanne Pinkney

I grew up near London and moved to Cornwall to complete a doctorate with the University of Birmingham and a company based near Par and I lived in the cottage for over 4 years during this time. My family and I (including Bella, the cat) regularly go to stay in the cottage as we all love it and find it a relaxing place to be.

Suzanne Pinkney purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Suzanne Pinkney chose Treverbyn

I fell in love with the house as soon as I saw it and have totally refurbished it, bringing it to modern standards whilst retaining its Regency charm.

What makes this cottage unique

When I first saw the house I loved its quirkiness, the unusually shaped rooms (including a slightly higher floor at the back of the lounge, due to very hard rock that the builders couldn't dig up when the house was extended!), and the very thick traditional stone walls. Being out of town but so close to amenities and the A30 was a huge benefit when I lived there.

Lovely well appointed cottage in convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 nights here recently and if you're thinking of this area, you should have no hesitation choosing this cottage. Its clean, comfortable and has everything you'd need for a short break.

The pub up the road is with in walking distance but up the road without footpath....you earn your drink! St Austell is only a short drive where you have plenty of shops.

As you're so close to the A30, you can get anywhere fairly quickly.

We'd definitely stay again if we're in the area!

Adorable cottage with modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling from the US, it's very hard to be sure what you are booking. This cottage was a welcome surprise! It is a cottage, with lower ceilings, smaller rooms and a steep staircase, but it has been updated in all the right ways. It is clean and comfortable, with heating in the floors, on the walls, in the wood burning stoves and even the towel rack in the bathroom. Lots of well-placed lighting gave it an airy feel, despite the smaller old-cottage quarters. And it still had plenty of space for the 4 adults in our party. We also loved exploring the area, and, thanks to a neighbor's recommendation, we dined twice at the Polgooth Inn. We would love to return someday!

Eden Project is 10 minutes drive or a 30 minute cycle on the Clay Trails. The market town of St Austell is a 5 minute drive and the county city of Truro is approximately 30-40 minutes or can be reached by train. The beautiful seaside towns of Fowey, Falmouth, and Mevagissey are also nearby with the famous surfing beaches of Newquay a 25 minute drive. Land's End is approximately an hour away.

There are fantastic opportunities for walks in the area. The Clay Trails are on the doorstep with the Saints Way, South West Coastal Path, and Bodmin Moor all a short drive.

For adventurous types the Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard has coasteering in a flooded quarry and zip lines are available both there and at the Eden Project.
