  • “We had a very nice stay.”

    One thing to note is to double check all furniture for previous occupants items. We found a pair of dirty pants in one of the draws and left them there. Only other thing I would say is a cobweb check we found a few and I unfortunately came across a monster of a spider but luckily my partner rescued me. The on-site facilities were what you would expect and were nothing special, however we were very impressed with the spaciousness of the cottage and the supply of cleaning materials, also the pint ...

    One thing to note is to double check all furniture for previous occupants items. We found a pair of dirty pants in one of the draws and left them there. Only other thing I would say is a cobweb check we found a few and I unfortunately came across a monster of a spider but luckily my partner rescued me. The on-site facilities were what you would expect and were nothing special, however we were very impressed with the spaciousness of the cottage and the supply of cleaning materials, also the pint of milk, teas, biscuits and coffees were also a very nice thought so thank you. The mattress in the master bedroom could do with updating as it was very springy in places and we found ourselves rolling in to meet in the middle at times. My daughter said the beds in the single bedroom were extremely comfortable and asked if we could take them home, we took our own travel cot for our 6 months old, however a high chair was provided for us and we found this more than adequate. She kept trying to eat the straps though so I apologise if these are mucky, I cleaned them as best I could. The washing machine does what it says on the tin, could do with a deep clean, and the dishwasher made things a lot easier for us. We loved the shower and size of the bathroom, further to having a downstairs loo which made it easier for us all to get through the bathrooms in the morning. All in all we had a very good stay and would come back again. Thank you

    "Thank you for your comments" feedback is extremely important to us, so we can continually look to improve standards. We apologise for the item of clothing being left in the drawer, they were clean and folded, not dirty as stated and on this occasion was an oversight on our behalf. Spiders are known to be present at this time of year and with a building which is 200 years old and a lot of open beams, unfortunately it is inevitable that an occasional spider and web may be seen, but we do check this on our weekly changeover and remove whenever possible. We can't always accommodate everyone's comfort levels but the appreciate the constructive comments. The washing machine drawer is emptied out and cleaned on every changeover, but not all guests use this facility therefore, there could have been a small amount of residual wastewater in the pipework, this has now been flushed through with a washing machine bleach. We are glad you enjoyed the welcome pack and overall enjoyed your stay; we take pride in our property and hope guests enjoy as much as we do. We do try and accommodate all guests needs where possible and improve on comments that are raised. As we live on site, we would hope that guests bring any issues to our attention so that we can address them during their stay or as soon as possible after departure. Property Owner

Wheal Rashleigh Dry Cottages

These superb cottages are part of a small collection of holiday properties on the edge of the former mining town of St Blazey. Wheal Rashleigh Dry Cottages have been beautifully-converted from an old china clay drying house and are situated just a mile from the world-renowned Eden Project and two miles from the sandy beach at Par. Imaginatively-designed in an upside down style, each of the cottages has retained wonderful character features including wooden beams and the original chimney, as well as offering contemporary touches such as floor to ceiling windows in some rooms offering views across the grounds. Each cottage has a small private patio area as well as access to large communal grounds, whilst a five minute walk will take you into St Blazey where you will find a selection of local shops. For a wide range of local amenities, St Austell, Cornwall's largest town, can be reached in less than ten minutes by car, or you may wish to visit the harbour at Charlestown, which often plays host to tall ships. Undoubtedly, the main attractions in this part of Cornwall are the magnificent gardens, with the Eden Project just a thirty minutes’ walk away from these cottages. Alternatively, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are only ten miles away, so you are totally spoilt for choice as to how to fill your days. There are also many small Cornish fishing villages and towns within easy reach. Looe, Polperro and Fowey, to name just a few, all offer a good selection of restaurants to suit all tastes. With their perfect location for visiting the many attractions that Cornwall has to offer, these holiday homes offer superb year-round destinations near to the south Cornish coast.

The property

About the location

ST BLAZEY

Eden Project 1 mile; Charlestown 3 miles; St Austell 3 miles.

St Blazey is a small town situated three miles east of St Austell and was formerly an important engineering centre for the local mining and railway industries. The town is nowadays best known for being the closest to the Eden Project. Nearby Charlestown is a delightful and much sought after coastal village of stone cottages and regency houses. It is famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path. The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches, (including dog-friendly Par Sands) and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, with plenty to see and do. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, this is a great year round location.
