The Mowie - Mowie Cottage is a beautiful accommodation surrounded by a peaceful rural landscape with delightful coastal walks nearby.
Mowie Cottage is an ideal hideaway in the small and peaceful rural hamlet of Stennack, just outside the village of Troon, part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.
Mowie Cottage is a single-storey, detached property surrounded by a picturesque rural landscape of open fields and woodland, with numerous local walks, making it very popular with dog walkers and ramblers.
Only a 10-minute drive from the A30, which offers excellent access to both the north and south coasts. There’s a wealth of tourist attractions situated throughout Cornwall including many National Trust properties, monuments and gardens, pretty fishing villages and harbours, beautiful beaches, coastal walks with stunning scenery, fine dining and traditional public houses.
A stone’s throw away is the former mining town of Camborne, now a bustling and vibrant town with an array of pubs, shops and restaurants. The local village of Troon is steeped in Cornish mining history with abandoned ivy covered engine houses that at one time serviced the areas thriving tin and copper industry.
The beautiful parish church of Treslothan is a short walk down the road, as is the 5000-year-old Giant’s Quoit. Troon itself has a supermarket and a pharmacy, whilst Camborne town centre and the Heartlands Cultural Experience are both a mere 5-minute drive away. The ruins of Carn Brea Castle and Bassett Monument are a short walk away and once at the top, the view over Cornwall stretches for miles. Archaeological digs have revealed this area to date back to Neolithic times and later Iron Age occupation.
The harbour at Portreath was built to service the flourishing mining industry centred around the Camborne and Redruth area, and by 1827 was said to be the most important port in Cornwall. The Portreath Tramway that linked the harbour to the copper mines at Scorrier and St Day was the first railway to be built in Cornwall.
Today, they form the Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast cycle way and footpath that leads walkers and cyclists into the very heart of Cornwall's industrial mining past. One of the routes, known as the Great Flat Lode Trail, is a circular trail that takes in Carn Brea.
A further connection with the Basset Monument is Tehidy Country Park, once owned by the Basset family, the estate was purchased by Cornwall County Council and today the grounds are open to the public for great walks, and a variety of events are held throughout the year.
A 15-minute drive takes you to the glorious, golden sandy beach at Hayle which stretches for miles, whilst St Ives is world famous for its quaint and charm, and is a haven for artists and visitors alike.
The coastal path along this stretch of Cornwall are nothing short of exhilarating, with ocean views that have been described as simply stunning, whilst the resident colony of about 30 seals at Godrevy are a year-round attraction not to be missed.
Helston, 10 miles away is famous for its Flora Day celebrations and its freshwater lake, Loe Pool.
