Experience - The Area...

Just a 10 minute drive from the fishing village of Mevagissey and the historic harbour of Charlestown, home port of Poldark, Tinners Forge is set on the former site of the Great Polgooth Tin Mine.

Tucked away in an elevated position within the owner's small business holding, this pretty cottage has been lovingly refurbished and provides a comfortable base for couples to enjoy rest and relaxation.

Tinners Forge is just a short walk downhill to the 16th century, dog friendly Polgooth Inn which serves good food and the village of Polgooth itself has a general store/post office and quaint antiques shop.

Set in a beautiful rural valley, the immediate area is abundant with local walks, bicycle hire is available at Pentewan 2.5 miles away where you can explore the Pentewan Valley and Clay Trails and golf is available nearby. 

Tinners Forge is also conveniently located for garden lovers with the Eden Project, Pinetum Gardens, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trewithen all within a 7 mile radius and the nearest beaches are at Porthpean and Pentewan, 3 miles respectively.

Stay - The Accommodation...

From the private car parking space, half a dozen railed steps and a sloping pathway leads uphill past the owners' home to Tinners Forge which snuggles neatly into the surrounding countryside to the rear.

A small, sunny cottage garden is to the front of the property with garden furniture, an abundance of birds and wildlife, and a gravel pathway leading up to the entrance.

A covered front door leads into the attractive blue washed conservatory which is light and bright and accommodates the well equipped kitchen and dining area.  Off the kitchen is a shower room WC with shower cubicle, hand basin and heated towel rail. 

An attractive, open plan living room has whitewashed stone walls and a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams; full of charm and character.  There is a comfortable leather sofa, warm rugs on the wooden floorboards, and a king size bed completes the accommodation layout.

Don't forget...

-There are three electric wall heaters.

-This property welcomes a maximum of 2 small dogs.

-Seven railed steps and a 100 yard sloping pathway leads uphill to the property from the car parking space below.

Polgooth was a lovely unspoilt cornish village with a rich mining heritage, which we were keen to explore, and would thoroughly recommend the area for a relaxing break. We come to Cornwall each year, and we would definetely return to both the area and this particular property. We had hoped to eat one night in the Polgooth Inn, but unfortunately could not get booked and instead ate at the Hewas Inn in nearby Sticker on the recommendation of a sweets Garage employee. Very busy but managed to fit us in, had to wait a while for food, but well worth the wait, great food, friendly and welcoming staff and would recommend to anyone. - Mr K Chilcott
"The property is central to anywhere, it?s a perfect location to cover all areas of Cornwall" Ms S Robinson
