Set in the countryside of Carn Brea near Redruth it is quiet yet close enough to the town to reach the shops, restaurants and pubs within 5 minutes drive or taxi if you want to have a drink out.
The nearest beach is Portreath which is only 8-10 minutes in the car and you can reach the 3 mile stretch of beach at Hayle and St Ives within just 15 minutes. Centrally located and the main A30 near by you can access the whole of Cornwall with ease.
Great Flat Lode Trail
The Great Flat Lode Trail is a 7.5 mile (12km) circular trail in the heart of the
historic Camborne-Redruth mining district.
The trail is multi-use for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Centred on the impressive hill of Carn Brea this trail is named after the ore vein which was
the centre of the tin mining activity here.
Information boards at the mining sites close to the trail provide further information on the
history and working of the mines which were famous for their tin and copper production.
For those wishing to make a small detour from the trail, the top of Carn Brea offers fine
views of Cornwall's Atlantic coast and it is possible to explore the slopes where the
remains of Neolithic and Iron Age occupation have been found. The Carn Brea Castle
restaurant and the Basset monument are other points of interest.
Most of the trail is off-road. The trail can be used by walkers, cyclists and by horse riders.
If cycling, it is advisable to use a mountain bike.
NOTE: All groups of people under 30 will have to pay a £300 refundable deposit a couple of weeks prior to arrival. This will be returned within a week after departure providing there is no damage.

One of the oldest towns in Cornwall, Redruth has a jam packed heritage in mining that reaches right back to the bronze age. From you holiday cottage in Redruth you’ll be on the doorstep of history. In the 19th century, Redruth was the centre of Cornwall’s once-rich tin mining industry and was the richest and largest metal mining area of the UK and was an integral part of the industrial revolution. A hotbed of industrial invention and home even to gas lighting, this incredible town was pivotal in the spread of Cornish goods and culture all over the modern world.
Whilst no longer an industrial mining town, much of this rich history remains on show in the clean, sunny streets which are lined with the grand buildings of a commercial past, with highlights including the Butter Market, Victorian theatre, the Coffee Tavern and the old mining exchange which once held boisterous auctions for locally mined copper and tin. Many of these old building have now been repurposed and although carefully preserved, now play host to holiday makers venturing out from their Redruth holiday cottages to enjoy fine foods, Cornish cream tea and coffee. Antique and vintage clothing shops also abound in many of Redruth’s historic buildings and there’s plenty of curiosities and history to keep even the least keen shoppers occupied.
Old mining tracks running from Redruth, close to many of the holiday cottages for rent in Redruth, now offer beautiful, near-level cycle and walking trails which are perfect for exploring the stunning Cornish countryside around Redruth. There’s also plenty of opportunity to stop off along the way for a pasty, a cream tea, or even a traditional Cornish cyder.
Close to town are plenty attractions for visitors on a rental cottage holiday in Redruth, including the watersports and angling centre at Stithians Lake and Country Park which is a great spot to get out sailing and windsurfing without the risks of the open ocean. One of the county’s top free visitor attractions, Heartlands, is also close by, offering 19 acres of fun packed family adventure including gardens, exhibitions, climb-on sculptures, craft studios and a giant adventure playground. You can learn even more about Cornish mining heritage at the National Trust’s Cornish Mines and Engines discovery centre at East Pool mine, or go further back in time at the 5,000 year old Neolithic hill fort remains and 18th century castle, near Barn Crea. You can even go shopping crazy and Cornwall Gold at Treasure Park, which houses the largest jewelry collection in Cornwall.
Whatever you choose to do, our holiday lettings and rental cottages in Redruth will be the perfect place for relaxing amidst Cornwall’s rich historic past.View more about Redruth

Why not send them a message if you need to know more.
Really lovely accommodation in a very quiet area. Local shops, pubs and supermarkets very nearby which was great. Karen left us a lovely welcome pack and there was milk in the fridge which was most welcome as we didn't have chance to pick any up on the way. The swimming pool was amazing and the kids really enjoyed it. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything you needed for self catering. We visited lots of different areas with the kids and had a great holiday. It is a perfect location in a perfect setting.
Accommodation was lovely and pool was larger than expected, would definitely come again.Big plus was safe secure large .garden for for our dog.Thank you.
Really loved our stay at the house. Everything was provided even little touches and we were so pleased we found this place for our holiday. We all loved the pool and the hot tub. Will
Brilliant 5* Pool Holiday House. Exceptionally clean, welcoming and well presented. Had a great time.
This is a great place for a holiday! The location was excellent for getting about, to different parts of Cornwall, although we were also very happy to just spend time at the house, in the pool, garden and hot tub. It was a lovely, peaceful location with fantastic views. Very comfortable beds and a lovely living/dining area plus a great kitchen. Karen is a really friendly and helpful host, and we definitely plan to visit Trevithick Retreat again, and will recommend to others (unless they might try and book it when we want to!)
This was the best holiday that my family and I have ever had in England. We loved the house and in particular the indoor swimming pool, which was a lot bigger than we thought it would be. We purchased some inflatables and watched a film in the pool, which was amazing. Karen was absolutely lovely and gave us lots of tips of places to visit. Some of our favourite places were St Michael's Mount, Falmouth, the maritime museum and catching the St Erth's train to Carbis Bay and St Ives. All bedrooms were a good size and it was handy having bathrooms on each floor. We would love to stay again.
Fantastic property which made it a struggle to tear my kids away!
The location was very central and easy to get around Cornwall, but not much to do in Redruth, except some lovely walks up the hill!
Overall, would definitely recommend Trevithick retreat, it had everything you needed for a great stay and more!
Beautiful well appointed home. Karen and Robbie were perfect hosts. Welcome pack for us and our dog lovely touch. Hair dryers, hot brush and fans provided. Not suitable for less able due to stairs and layout of the house, but didn’t affect our stay and would definitely book again. Location excellent for visiting the north and south coast of Cornwall.
Well, what can you say about a holiday that has a private pool! Karen & Robbie has done a fantastic job with this property.
We decided to have a staycation, instead of going abroad for our final family holiday. We found this little gem whilst looking for a dog friendly location, booked it instantly. Upon arrival we were greeted by Karen & Robie who showed us around. They had left us a welcome package, including one for our dog, a lovely touch. Local produce is a great way to start wanting more, not a fan of red wine, however I came home with a few of these bottles. The weather was fabulous, great views from the garden. You may not have Seaviews from within the cottage, as stated, but wonderful scenery throughout, magical sunset evenings in the garden. The Hot tub was ideal, after a long drive down.
So would I recommend this Holiday Hideaway? Yes we would, loved it so much, we're deciding on a date to go again to the same property. If it rains the whole week, would we care? No. It's the Holiday home with a private pool and friendly welcome that made it Perfect!
Thanks Karen & Robbie
See you again
This was a truly wonderful place to spend the week at, location was great and amenities were superb, my only gripe is that none of the bedroom windows opened to allow air inside the rooms, there seemed to be a ventilation vent, but that's all and it was extremely warm, and there was only 1 fan for 3 bedrooms, aircon is definitely needed especially during the warmer months.
This location was absolutely incredible! If you want a little home away from home, this is the place to be. Karen was so accomodating, gave us a lovely welcome and tour of the home and was available if we needed her at any point during our stay. We had everything we could possibly need, and the short walk to the store was beautiful and enjoyable to stock up on food and snacks. We enjoyed the easy access to public transportation and utilized it to go to Port Isaac, St. Michael's Mount, and St. Ives. If you want a true Cornish experience, I'd highly recommend staying here!
Great stay, has all you need for a week away with friends / family. Location is great for access to most parts of cornwall by road and also its only a cheap taxi to the local train stations where you can get to st ives, penzance, falmouth easily if you want to have a drink out. Would certainly recommend!
Thanks for your lovely review glad you enjoyed your holiday karen and Robbie
The amenities were excellent, full use was made of the swimming pool, pool table and jacuzzi. The house was extremely comfortable so, on a day when the weather wasn’t great, we didn’t feel as though some of our holiday was wasted. Karen and Robbie were excellent hosts and were on hand should we have any queries. The welcome pack was also a lovely touch. The location of the property meant to go to local beaches was only a short drive away, and less than an hour to other popular resorts. Would definitely stay there again.
Thanks for your kind review so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Trevithick retreat thanks karen and Robbie
Amazing property, beautifully clean with everything you need for a perfect stay. Swimming pool big enough to swim properly and perfectly clean, lovely seating area around the pool with pool table. Hot tub lovely and relaxing again super clean. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Couldn’t fault the property at all, we had a wonderful time and would go back again in a heartbeat.
Second time staying here love it can’t wait to return
Absolutely wonderful place to stay, perfect location near to all great places to visit. Highly recommended!!
We’ve had a really wonderful break at this stunning house! The owners are so friendly and welcoming and the house was spotless and extremely well equipped. The location is great - lots of local take aways, restaurants and shops and lots of beautiful beaches just a short drive away. A fabulous base in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
Can’t fault it, it was as promised and more.
This property is fantastic. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the hot tub. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and we received a lovely welcome pack. Would really recommend staying here.
What a fantastic place. The accommodation is so nice and perfect for a family holiday. The pool was the icing on the cake and one of the main reasons we booked. We were only about 20-30 minutes travel to all the places we planned to visit like St Ives, Penzance, Newquay, Padstow, Truro, St Agnes and more. Accommodation is high spec and fitted out with everything you need. Supermarket and food outlets only a few minutes away but the house is so quiet. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and would definitely return. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Fantastic stay at this accommodation. The accommodation is immaculate in terms of cleanliness and the location is great for setting off on day trips to surrounding areas in Cornwall. For that touch of luxury, the pool area is amazing, it certainly kept our children entertained on rainy days. Lovely touches when we arrived to find a bottle of bubbly and cream teas in the fridge. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need for self catering. Would definitely book again
We had the most amazing stay and very lucky we booked the week of the 12th April!..... beautiful cottage, pool amazing used a lot and temperature was perfect. Very clean throughout and had everything you needed for self catering. The owners, Karen and Robbie were lovely, showed us everything we needed to know. Nice guides of where to go and the nearest beach is only 5 minute drive with good parking. It's a great beach for rock pooling.... although not advertised as a sea view you can see the horizon of the see clearly. I watched the sun set over sea every evening from the cottage. I wanted to go back again this year but with school age children it's all booked which is not surprising. A little gem this place, can not wait to return one day....
We were looking for a family retreat with a heated indoor swimming pool for the kids and a toasty hot tub for the grown ups and Trevithick delivered 100%. Being located further west in Cornwall meant that we could go for some long walks out in the lovely countryside when the weather brightened up.
All the facilities were spot on and we couldn't have asked for better. Really enjoyed our stay.
We had a lovely stay, and the welcoming gifts were a nice addition. We walked up the mountain behind the house (precarious after the rain) but it was great fun. We also walked down the Lane and turned right onto the footpath...lovely scenic views and the dogs loved it.
We explored to local areas too, and had a great time! We will be back :)
We were really impressed with the accommodation, we all loved the hot tub of an evening. The pool was a little cool but ok once you were in. We hope to return sometime, overall we would recommend this property
Thanks for your review glad you enjoyed your stay hope to see you again thanks Karen and Robbie
Lovely place. Pool and hot tub were great along with the pool table. Nice walks around the local area and interesting looking around the old mine buildings.
Karen and Robbie were very welcoming and we found the property to be very clean and with everything that we needed for our week's stay. The pool, pool table and jacuzzi were thoroughly enjoyed by us all and we found the properties location very good for visiting all the Cornish sights. Just one thing to note is that the particulars say 4 bathrooms where as in fact it has one bathroom with shower (no toilet), one shower room with toilet and two separate toilets. It wasn't a problem but just the particulars I found a little confusing. Saying this we would thoroughly recommend people to stay at this wonderful property.
Thanks for your lovely review glad you enjoyed your stay , hope to see you all again .
Amazing! Karen and Robbie were fantastic hosts. Everything was clean. Pool was brilliant especially on the cooler days. We tended to do something in the morning like walking to the monument; cycle ride; beach; horse riding etc then spent afternoons swimming. We all enjoyed our 10 day stay there especially the children.
Amazing place wish we didn’t have to leave
A lovely stay with wonderful extra Christmas touches. The hot tub was great on the chilly evenings and we also enjoyed the pool. Incredibly peaceful at night so very restful.
Stunning house, amazing quality facilities, especially the pool room with pool table. Grounds are large, secure and immaculate. Location is fantastic central to everywhere with Tesco 2 mins drive.
Notwithstanding the above bedrooms are lovely and have everything you need. It was only an issue for us as husband has mobility restrictions and going up and down to shower was difficult and myself and one of my sons found the rooms beautiful
Thanks for lovely review so glad you enjoyed your stay
Had a fantastic stay in the retreat, Robbie was very helpful on arrival. Could not fault the cottage, it has everything for everyone. Ideal for families and kids would love it! Overall I would 1000% return and can’t wait to!
Perfect little luxury home with plenty to do and very relaxing. Owners are very helpful too.
Thanks for lovely review hope to see you again Karen and Robbie
Amazing place. It is just like the pictures. The owners are really nice. Great location for exploring.
On arrival - the owners were very helpful and answered all the questions we needed to know. The actual house is excellent with no complaints what so ever and the welcoming treats were a very nice touch. Swimming Pool and Hot Tub were amazing. The only comment I would make is that the bedrooms are very snug - more like a cabin - but - still very nicely furnished.
We all had a good time and the owner has already implemented some of my minor suggestions - keep up the good work.
Great house and location, everything we wanted. Can highly recommend, we hope to return.
The accommodation is amazing. Very well equipped and has enough entertainment for a shiny and rainy day. We had a fantastic time and highly recommend it!
Amazing stay here. Pool and hot tub a delight after a long day walking the coast. Being dog friendly was fab too and the owners even gave us a basket of treats when we arrived including ones for the hounds. Defiantly stay again and recommended.
If anything, the listing doesn’t do this house and the lovely little touches to it justice! Comfy beds, homely living area, well equipped kitchen, clean and fresh bathrooms and, of course, the pool and hot tub were amazing. For an Autumn visit the house was cozy and definitely on the warm side. My ever so fussy other half had absolutely nothing to grumble about at this house!!! The owners are just next door and certainly make you feel welcome. We plan to go back!!!!!
We had a fabulous time staying at Trevithick including the dogs. The property is dog friendly with large gardens that are secure. The location is excellent plenty of local walks and only around half an hour drive to st ives and Newquay and 40 minutes from other locations such as lizard point and lands end...the swimming pool and pool table was a big hit with our teenage boys..Robbie and Karen are around if you need them however leave you to enjoy your time at Trevithick
We would love to return one day if you are thinking of booking this property you will not be disappointed
Thanks for lovely review hopefully see you again in future Karen and Robbie
Fabulous house! The pool area is amazing, kept everyone entertained for hours, we didn't want to leave. We'll definitely recommend it to others.
Thanks for your review so glad you had a great holiday
Absolutely stunning place!! We all had a blast the pool was a big hit with the kids. Karen & Robbie are so friendly. We had a brilliant stay. Thankyou.
Very clean house with everything you need. The swimming pool is amazing!
Thank you very much, we look forward to seeing you again.
We loved the house and the swimming pool was great to have and made our holiday a fantastic week. Also Karen was really nice and made us feel very welcome . A definite place to stay .wonderfull
Glad you enjoyed your stay thanks for lovely review
We loved our holiday here. We went as a whole family, me, my husband, son, daughter, son-in-law 2 granddaughters aged 2 and 4 and our dog.Everything we needed was there also a welcome box which even included dog chews. We had 1 day of rain but it just meant we could all play in the pool for the day. The nearby town is quite run down but it did not spoil our visit to Cornwall at all as we could travel everywhere as it is very central. We would certainly go again. Only 1 thing I would add would be a small spin dryer by the pool so that when we had a shower the costumes would be dryer quicker, ready for the next swim. Thank you Karen and Robbie for making our first family holiday in Cornwall 'one to remember'.
Fantastic facility, great location and treated very well by Karen and rob. Definitely a place we would like to book again in the future.
Trevithick Retreat was amazing, we had a fantastic stay, good central location visited Perranporth, Newquay, Hayle and st Ives, lovely to be able to come back to trevithick Retreat with a fab pool and hot-tub. Karen and Robbie were welcoming and showed us the house and how to use the facilities, also and added extra of a welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, sugar, scones with jam and clotted cream, an Easter egg each for the kids and wine and beer. Totally fantastic stay and some days the kids didn't want to leave as so much to do. They also have the Wii so kids have entertainment in the evening. Cannot recommend the place enough...... absolutely fantastic
Superb place to stay.
Beautiful accommodation, spotlessly clean & has everything you need for a great stay.
Pool & hot tub are great, beds are very comfortable, took us a while to get motivated to get up!
Owners are lovely people, only to happy to help with anything you need & also provided little extras on our arrival which is a lovely touch. Will 100% recommend to anyone needing a break away.
We will be definitely returning on our next visit to Cornwall.
Our stay at Trevithick Retreat was absolutely perfect! First let me start by saying that our hosts were extremely kind and helpful. Upon arrival, they spent time with us, showing us the house and how to work the pool, Jacuzzi, etc. They were very “down to Earth”, super-friendly and easy to talk to.
As for the accommodation – I could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I certainly hope we get the chance to visit the area again as I would love to stay in the same house. It is a perfect retreat for any time of year! It has all of the amenities you could possibly want or need.
The house and grounds were immaculate and very well decorated. The pool and Jacuzzi were amazing and the temperature of both were just perfect. There were great pool toys available for use, which we all loved. It was also so cool to be able to have the TV on while in it. It was great to be in the pool, and still be able to watch the Olympic events on the TV, or have music on! The sound system was awesome. Playing pool and ping pong were a lot of fun too. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with everything you need to cook and entertain. The beds are super comfortable. The gardens and outside entertaining area were lovely and very well kept. The house was very private and just so comfortable and cozy!
I was also very pleasantly surprised that they had also done some shopping to provide us with a few food and drink supplies to get us started. I had not anticipated that at all as this has never happened at any other place we have rented. What an amazing touch to the rental! They really had thought of everything to make this stay wonderful for us. I am so impressed!
We have rented many places, in different countries, and this is by far my favorite place!
We absolutely loved staying here. Everything about the property was wonderful, in particular the amazing pool area and the hot tub! Having the tv or music on whilst in the pool was an added attraction! The lounge/kitchen/dining area was great for relaxing in the evening and all of the beds were incredibly comfortable. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. An ideal location for exploring local beaches and attractions. We hope to return in the future!
Overall the house and facilities were excellent. The pool is amazing and we struggled to get the kids to come out which allowed us to really relax.
Great location for visiting, St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay.
Fab location and stunning facilities
We will be back again soon
Thanks again xxx
Beautiful house in a great location.
We were lucky with the weather but if you had a rainy day it would be no problem to stay at the house, there is plenty to keep you entertained.
Owners live next door, so any problems or advice about the area is easy to obtain.
Redruth was great base to explore this part of our lovely country, we visited lands end, lizard, st Michaels mount, Falmouth, st ives and many little villages in the area.
Would thouroughly recommend
A lovely house with an amazing swimming, and hot tub. Beautifully decorated with everything brand new. Weather wasn't so kind to us, so the warm clean pool was our saving grace. Robbie and Karen were great . Easy train ride to St Ives and 30 mins from Newquay, this is the ideal holiday home to stay at.
An incredible holiday, thanks to the outstanding property - Trevithick Retreat was a real indulgence, enjoyed by all and we can't wait to return! The pool and hot tub were such a wonderful feature and Robbie and Karen made so many lovely gestures throughout our stay (including a really thoughtful welcome pack of delicious treats!), we felt really well looked after! It's a fantastic base for exploring the best of Cornwall - without hesitation we would absolutely recommend this holiday!
Our family has just returned from a fantastic stay here, we were welcomed in and was delighted to find everything was even better than the photos.
We loved the fire by our pool, it was truly relaxing and the kids were always busy :)
AMAZING - Location is just perfect, views are stunning - Laura was very helpful and the cottage was modern, had everything we needed. Having a pool to ourselves was just unreal, felt like a celeb on holiday! We had one rainy day so we stayed in, this was one of the best days of the holiday! We are booking again for 2017
