The Threshing Barn is a beautiful restoration and conversion of a historic agricultural building. Restored during 2010, this wonderful barn offers very comfortable reverse level accommodation with 2 bedrooms sleeping up to four people on the ground floor and a large first floor living space with a beamed roof and finished with rustic oak flooring. Exposed stonework on the walls provides a real sense of atmosphere. A wood burning stove keeps things really cosy during the winter months. Church Close Cottage is the result of a significant restoration of a 100 year old stone calving barn in the grounds of historic Cusgarne House, which was the home of James Watt at the end of the 18th century. The cottage is designed over a part single and part 2 storey building. There is a large open plan living area with a cosy, wood burning stove and french windows opening onto a private patio area. There are views to the south over farmland and to the south-east over the grounds and valley beyond. It is a truly peaceful and relaxing setting.

Tin - the powerhouse of Cornwall's industrial past. Oak wooded, heather topped valleys with crystal streams once throbbed with the racket of tin streaming - winning precious metals. Engine houses and stacks bear stark, romantic testament to a heritage borne of the bravery and determination of generations of miners and Bal maidens. The area of Mid Cornwall, south west from Truro and only a short drive inland from Falmouth is full of this industrial heritage. The Victorian towns of Camborne and Redruth - both produced world-class inventors and engineers. Camborne's Richard Trevithick created the world's first steam-powered road engine in 1801. His achievements are celebrated at Camborne's annual Trevithick Day celebrations in April. You can follow in the footsteps of Cornwall's 18th Century tin miners on the atmospheric tour of the Poldark Mine just north of Helston.

Nearby is Stithians Lake, for fishing, sailing, sailboarding and recently the stunning wake-boarding championships. For views of the whole region take the roads to Carn Brea or Carn Marth above Camborne. From here you can see St Ives, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth and east to Clay Country. Near here is the Great Flat Lode Trail through the mines and high moors. These days, most of the mining has disappeared, but it is still a fascinating area to explore and is steeped in history. A highlight is to hire a bicycle and ride along the old mineral tramway now called the Bissoe Trail from Devoran to Portreath or the North Coast.

Cusgarne lies in a sheltered valley on the edge of the famous tin and copper heritage mining area between Redruth, Truro and Falmouth. Here in the past were many industries; flour mills, wool, paint, linen and candle factories to name a few. This lovely sheltered valley, where many rare plants grow, is a delightful place to visit with something for everyone to enjoy.

The harbour town of Falmouth is within a short drive with a number of attractions for the visitor. There is the fascinating National Maritime Museum or you can take a boat trip around the spectacular Carrick Roads or sample the stylish Rick Stein's Fish & Chip Restaurant or Oyster Bar.

The Helford River and Lizard Peninsula are also within easy reach.

The city of Truro is only a 7 mile drive to the north east and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets. There is also a cinema and a great selection of restaurants, pubs & cafes. The resort of Newquay is about 12 miles to the north with its spectacular surf beaches at Fistral & Watergate Bay. Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles. Harbourside towns & villages such as Fowey, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach. For those flying to Cornwall, the airport is within easy reach.

D&C Jones, Apr 2012

What a beautiful place, amazing views & peaceful location. The cottages themselves are lovely, very family friendly. Everything was so clean and fresh, and we were provided with everything we could possibly need and more. We had a fantastic family holiday and are all feeling refreshed & relaxed. Will be passing on all the details to family & friends & will definitely be returning ourselves. Many thanks from the Keefe family.
