Bruce’s Cottage sits in a small hamlet convenient for exploring the delights of West Cornwall. This deceptively spacious, semi-detached cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners’ retaining many of its original, period features.
The cottage is ideally located and is just a short drive from the historic town of Marazion and the beautiful island St Michaels Mount. There are many towns and villages within a few miles to explore, each offering lots of local history. It is also conveniently situated for visiting Penzance, Mousehole, Newlyn, Lands End and St Ives. A scenic coastal train runs from nearby St Erth in to St Ives where you can discover winding streets, art galleries, The Tate Gallery, tea rooms and a selection of quality restaurants, many dotted along the water’s edge.
The area is popular with walkers, beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts, with surfing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing trips available locally, or just relax on one of the many beautiful beaches nearby. Walk to the National Trust’s Trencrom Hill from the cottage where from the top you can enjoy the stunning view of both coasts. The wide Hayle Estuary and marshes at Marazion attract bird watchers from around the world. Sub-tropical gardens, National Trust properties and the tin mining heritage can all be found on the doorstep. This wonderful home from home is perfect for families and friends looking for a quiet relaxing break whatever the season. Beach 4 miles. Shop and pub 1¾ miles, restaurant 4 miles.
Fantastic cottage base for a big family (or multiple family) holiday. Exactly what you imagine of a Cornish country cottage; cosy fireplaces, gorgeous stonework, with the added bonus of rather plentiful space.
Lovely cottage. New, very clean & well furnished. Just off the A30 on a small but easily accessed lane. There is absolutely no noise from the A30. Nice walks directly from cottage. Easy access to a number of good places such as St Michael's Mount & the Botallack tin mine heritage coast. Great place to stay.
Bruces's Cottage is a very comfortable and well equipped home in a lovely setting. Fresh fruit, flowers and a cream tea made for a lovely welcome after our journey from Suffolk. It is very quiet and peaceful despite being only a few hundred yards from the A30, no traffic noise at all. There is access to countryside footpaths right from the end of the driveway. Trencrom Hill is a must to visit for the views. We also enjoyed a walk to Carbis Bay and St Ives returning by train to St Erth. Bruce's cottage is an ideal base to explore West Cornwall from and we would highly recommend a stay here
Bruce's Cottage is cosy, comfortable, spacious and is well equipped to cater for a young baby and an eight year old child. It is situated in a quiet location and yet within easy reach of beaches and places of interest to visit. All of our party have said that they would love to have another holiday at this cottage.
Bruce's cottage did not disappoint. Everything was perfect. I only marked it lower for value for money because of us going in peak time and everything is expensive. It is a short drive to any shops which wasn't an issue for us but it might be for others.
What a lovely cottage. Tucked right away in a really quiet spot it had everything we needed and more. The friendly owners are on site if we needed them but left us to enjoy our holiday. The cottage was bigger than I expected with so much room plus really well equipped. Location was perfect with the unexpected bonus of always being against the traffic jams heading east as all the other holidaymakers headed west for the day. Definitely recommend
Our stay December, 2019
We spent Christmas 2019 at Bruce's cottage and it totally exceeded our expectations. It was so warm and homely and comfortable with everything we could possibly need. When we arrived the fires (there are two!) were already packed ready to be lit (we saved one for Christmas morning, opening presents in front of it was like a postcard setting!) with an incredible Cornish Cream Tea hamper with freshly baked scones to welcome us. Everything was spotless, really comfortable beds, the kitchen is wonderful to cook and socialise in, with fantastic features, an old range and exposed beams, but really modern appliances which made our stay so easy. Don't let the word cottage fool you, it is really spacious, 3 bathrooms, a playroom as well as the main areas. Sam and her family were so accommodating, and they live close in case you need anything and there is ample parking. It's far away from the main road to be very secluded and quiet, but you are a 5 minute drive from 3 major supermarkets (and the sea!) I cannot recommend Bruce's cottage enough, we were really sad to leave and are already planning our return, and we would love to spend Christmas there again.
