At 0.8 miles the Annexe is just a short walk to the golden sands of Porthtowan beach and next to the beautiful wooded valley of Park Shady. The Annexe is part of a 200 year old Mine Count House situated at the top of the old Tywarnhayle Mine. Comfortable, unique with original features, charm and character yet with all the modern comforts you would expect.

Mount Hawke, England, United Kingdom

The annexe is roughly a 20 minute walk each way from Mount Hawke and Porthtowan where you will find the popular Blue bar at ideal to catch the stunning sunsets. We have two good shops one at Mount Hawke one at Porthtowan short 20 minute pretty wooded walk or 3 minute drive. There are many stunning walks and bridleways all on the doorstep though the paths can be muddy in the winter so boots advisable.
We are a couple of miles from the stunning Bissoe trail a fantastic route through the old mining trail that leads to Devoran on the south coast.
The coast path can be accessed by a 30 minute steep climb and the picturesque Wheal Coates (of Poldark fame) is about an hour at slow pace.
