Inbetween Cottage is situated on the southern edge of the hamlet of Crofthandy, which is in the parish of Gwennap.It is NOT in Gwennap itself .
Crofthandy is close to the villages of St.Day and Carharrack, and 3 1/2 miles from the town of Redruth.

It is, I believe, an ideal base from which to explore an area once described as the richest square mile in the world because of the large copper and tin ore reserves found locally .It's now a world heritage site,criss-crossed by a myriad of walking/cycle trails ,some only 100yds away. However it is equally well placed to access the beaches on both coasts(Portreath 5mls,Falmouth 8mls) and the major towns(Falmouth 8mls,Truro City 7mls). Lands End is about 35 miles away,St.Michaels Mount 20 miles and the Eden Project around 30 miles distant.There are many great gardens to visit and explore within a 20 mile radius.In short there is something for every interest and everybody in Cornwall and all in easy reach from my cottage.
The cottage is light and airy ,greatly benefiting from it's south facing location.It is open- plan downstairs,with a well equipped kitchen containing a washer/dryer,oven+hob,fridge with small freezer compartment,toaster and microwave, a dining area with table and four chairs,and a cosy lounge area with two two-seater sofas,tv/dvd combo,radio etc.The lounge area has a high,exposed beamed ceiling.The stairs lead up to a landing with a double bedroom off,equipped with a double bed ,bedside drawer units with reading lights, a 5-drawer chest and double wardrobe ,all pine,two seats from which to enjoy the view and a wicker hamper containing extra pillows/duvet.The separate shower room,also off the landing, contains a large shower enclosure with a mains pressure,thermostatic shower mixer,vanity basin, heated towel rail and ,of course, a toilet .The ceilings upstairs are also a generous height, unusual in a cottage.This contributes to the light and airy feel of Inbetween.
Dogs are welcome downstairs (stair-gate fitted) and in the enclosed garden.There are off-road dog-walking opportunities along the many footpaths criss-crossing the now largely overgrown,former mining terrain within 100 yards of the cottage.
The south facing garden contains a companion seat ,a picnic table on a paved patio area,a stand for disposable barbeques and a lockable shed for bike etc. storage.There is also a rotary clothes airer.Laundry accessories are provided.There is a storage box for muddy boots just outside the front (and only!) door and a hosepipe with jet nozzle for rinsing muddy doggies or what-you-will just inside the garden gate.
There is free wi-fi,inclusive heating (storage plus imitation wood burner) and electricity,Towels(not beach) and bed linen are supplied.Non smoking indoors.
Recent improvements to mobile phone coverage have resulted in a decent Vodaphone signal at the cottage and should also have brought a better O2 signal to the area,since it was a joint venture, tho' I can't confirm this at present ( April 2018 ) . The O2 signal has certainly improved with the Vodaphone signal where I live and I can see no reason why it won't have improved at the cottage if the Vodaphone one has.( I'm on Vodaphone so could easily verify that ).
Parking is available in the road beside the terrace's gardens and is only shared with number 3 and visitors .Lewis and Alison,in number 1 ,generally park alongside their own cottage (Inbetween is number 2).The cottages are set at right-angles to the road,as can be seen in some of the photos.
Inbetween's post code is TR16 5JB. Detailed directions will be released on the Owners Direct site 21 days before your booking is due to start.This is for security reasons.
Anyone who hasn't been to Cornwall for a number of years will find that the main road into the county ,the A30, is much improved with dual carriageway all the way from the end of the M5 at Exeter to the Carland Cross roundabout for Truro .There are then 8miles of single lane road until Chiverton Cross roundabout is reached and where it reverts to dual-caarriageway again as far as Hayle.
Please take a few minutes to have a look at the photos and read the reviews posted by my previous guests and feel free to ask any questions you wish.
Stays of 7 nights or more are discounted to reflect the lower changeover costs and to encourage longer stays in our beautiful county.The discount equates to one midweek night free.
