Coastal 200 year old tin miner's granite stone cottage in a very quiet village on the north coast of Cornwall about 15 minutes drive from Penzance, and about 25 minutes drive to St. Ives (and Tate Gallery) along the spectacular north coast. The coastal path starts just near the cottage with wonderful breathtaking scenery. The location is very near the Pendeen Watch Lighthouse and some lovely secluded, usually empty, sandy beaches, Portheras being our special favorite. The Geevor Tin Mine and Cafe (good Sunday lunch!) is a short walk away and has fascinating tours underground and a museum. Boscaswell is a peaceful, friendly village and Pendeen a short walk away for some good basic shopping, and two nice pubs. Lovely Sennen Cove is a short drive away through the charming village of St. Just. The wonderful Eden Project is about 45 minutes drive away. Also there are many National Trust Gardens to visit including the Lost Gardens of Heligan and many activities for children in the area.
Other Activities: spectacular coastal walks
Golf: Golf Courses are available.

About Nicky Gunter
We are a family of three generations who live in London and all of us take turns at the cottage as there are now too many of us! It's been a very special and much loved place for us for over 38 years. Many of our friends have been to visit the cottage and several have found their own properties near us. Some have even moved permanently to Cornwall. It's a magical place!
Nicky Gunter purchased this cottage in 1978
Why Nicky Gunter chose Lower Boscaswell
We rented the property in the summer of 1977 and immediately loved it. The owners worked at Leach Pottery in St. Ives and the cottage was filled with wonderful pots. Leach tiles still surround the kitchen sink. The Geevor tin mine was still working then and we loved all the history of the area.
What makes this cottage unique
We loved the fact that it was a working village and not touristy when we bought it and it's still unspoilt. We like the view of the sea the most and being so near the most stunning coastal paths, coves for watching seals, basking sharks, pods of dolphin, and those amazing sunsets over the sea. We love those granite stone walls, the wood burning stove, and cosiness of the cottage. Best is walk to "our" beach, Portheras!
