Would recommend The Brook to anyone staying in Cornwall. The location is perfect for traveling to all points of interest and very peaceful and relaxing. Parking is no problem. The hosts John and Bev are very friendly, helpful and accomodating. We couldn't fault anything..
Great location with excellent hosts.
We loved our stay at The Brook it was exactly what we wanted and needed. Location is great around 25 minutes from anything you could want to do, but remote enough to be quite and peaceful. Hosts were fantastic offering suggestions for things for us to do, and our comfort was their top priority.
What a fantastic place!!! A fully furnished, clean and homely bungalow...the photos on the website do not do it justice!!! Everything we could need was provided and the cream tea left for us was very much appreciated!!
Bev and John the lovely owners were on hand and gave us recommendations for days out and a local gem for an amazing breakfast!!
I would definitely recommend The Brook...we'll definitely be back!!!
Comfortable cottage in central Cornish location
A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a central location for coastal and city amenities. The owners were on site and very friendly and helpful. We opted to stay for 2 extra days.
A great family friendly base to explore Cornwall
Immaculately presented and spacious accomodation in excellent condition. Modern kitchen with everything needed to make meals at home. Fantastic setup for families with kids - secure inside garden with full range of toys provided; rounded/ soft corners on most indoor furniture; large library of dvds/ childrens books provided for rainy days, as well as solid tabletop game collection. Owners live next door, very friendly and helpful. Central location close to A30 , excellent for exploring Cornwall. Would certainly visit again!
The Brook is equidistant from St Agnes, Porthtowan and Portreath with their stunning beaches with fabulous surf and acres of golden sand. Porthtowan (meaning cove of sand dunes) has some of the best surf in the UK. However it is sometimes not for the faint hearted and beginners should be careful but there is an excellent surf school which operates from the beach. Portreath (meaning cove of sand) is a delightful village which extends both sides of a valley leading down into a little harbour and beach. West of the harbour entrance are two more beaches with golden sands that are popular with holidaymakers and surfers alike. The centre point on the Bissoe cycle trail that links the north and south coasts stretching from Devoran to Portreath. with predominantly off road mining trails passes the end of your drive - no driving required at all!.
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.
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.
