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.

Myself and my husband were looking for somewhere relaxing to stay for the weekend with our 8 month old baby, somewhere out of the hustle and bustle, yet not too far from local amenities.
We found this and more at the Ivy Barn. It was in such a lovely location, and the cottage itself was beautiful, spotless and no detail had gone amiss. We were greeted with a wonderful Cornish cream tea and Prosecco, and plenty of logs to use on the log burner. The hot tub was all ready to go and nothing was too much trouble, there was even a stair gate fitted on arrival with a travel cot and high hair which meant we were able to pack light.
The accommodation had everything you could need from towels to tin foil and was deceivingly spacious! We didn’t want to leave Ivy Barn and we will definitely be returning! Thank you.
