The Retreat Cottage near Penzance in Cornwall

The Retreat Cottage

Near Penzance, Cornwall

The Retreat is a sympathetically converted barn set in the sleepy hamlet of Badgers Cross, located in the countryside between Penzance on the South Coast and St.Ives on the North Coast.

Overlooking fields and hedgerows towards Newlyn Harbour, Penzance and the sea. The Retreat may be relaxing but its also right at the centre of the great Cornish experience.

Around the Area

Minack Clifftop Open-Air Theatre

Kenegie may be relaxing but its also at the centre of the great Cornish experience.

Famous St.Ives with its Tate Gallery is only 6 miles away, while the fairytale St.Michaels Mount is almost on the doorstep. Rugged Lands End, exotic Trengwainton Gardens and the Minack Clifftop Open-Air Theatre are all easily reached by car.

There's plenty of fun for all the family at a variety of Theme Parks close by, and if you want to go a little further a day trip by helicopter or boat from Penzance to the beautiful Isles of Scilly or a short drive to the Eden Project and great choices.

We recommend that you bring your car to get the best out of your holiday.
