About Polmina Cottage

A contemporary-styled holiday cottage surrounded by luscious Cornish countryside and a short walk from the coast.

This welcoming cottage is located on a National Trust farm. Just off the South West Coast Path, it’s an ideal spot for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Polmina Cottage is a first-floor, open plan studio apartment with a double bed. The open living space is complete with kitchen and dining area and offers far-reaching sea views. Off the living space, you’ll find a separate bathroom with a bath, basin and toilet. Outside, there’s a small grassed garden enclosed by a traditional Cornish stone wall. Enjoy peaceful mornings with a cuppa or spend the evening watching the sun set over the ocean. Access to cottage is via the garden and up approximately 10 steps. 

You’ll be spoiled for choice for things to do during your holiday. Enjoy lazy days at the many beaches nearby, explore public footpaths taking you up high onto the West Cornwall moorland and along the South West Coast Path. Art lovers will adore bustling St Ives, just seven miles from the cottage, with its exhibitions and galleries. History buffs can check out the old tin mines that dot the landscape – starting with St Just, originally the centre of the tin mining industry.

If you're looking for some traditional villages to explore, Pendeen to the west and Zennor to the east are four miles away. Here you'll find village pubs, convenience stores, and seasonal cafés.

Further afield, visit Land’s End, the most westerly (and often most windy) point of the UK mainland. Or scale St Michael’s Mount near Penzance, a rocky island crowned by a medieval church and castle. If surfing is more your style, Porthmeor Beach is for you. For a completely different type of drama, head to the world-famous Minack Theatre for an open-air show you’re sure to remember. Or take in Godolphin's Grade II listed walls that are cared for by the National Trust, witness conservation in action and step back in time as you venture through the historic house and gardens.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
