Welcome to Grenfells Cottage - North West Cornwall

Grenfells Cottage is a family owned, dog friendly, peaceful escape in the heart of the celtic art scene, where you will be surrounded by a wealth of culture and traditions. If you take a short walk, you will see some of the historic tin mines and rugged cliff tops that bring the hit TV show 'Poldark' to life.

A charming tin miner's, terraced cottage with sea views from every room over the surrounding farmland.

Dating back to early Victorian times, this traditional granite cottage has recently been renovated to provide a comfortable and surprisingly spacious family holiday home, complete with cosy period interior.

This cottage boasts two outside areas; a newly built, spacious front patio complete with table and chairs, to enjoy a morning breakfast with sea views, or a beautiful place to have an evening BBQ with friends and family, watchng the sun set.

The major benefit of this lovely cottage – and there are many! - is it’s central location being only three miles from St. Just, seven miles to the fabulous blue flag beach at Sennen Cove and twelve miles in the opposite direction to the artist’s colony of St. Ives. Furthermore, Grenfell’s is a short stroll to the Levant Mine which is perched on the mighty granite cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, housing one of the oldest working beam engines in Cornwall.


On your doorstep their are a number of footpaths and published walks that cater to all interests. Don't forget, we are dog friendly!

With these veiws no one should be left out!


Operated by the National Trust, The old mine workings have been very well preserved and the huge Beam Engine is fired up several times a week and is a real treat for the family. Less than a mile down the main North Coast road is the famous Geevor Mine, the last working tin mine in the area and now a heritage Museum and The Pendeen lighthouse is just a little further on.
