Many people regard St Ives as the most picturesque resort in Cornwall, with its ever changing combination of magnificent coastal views and narrow streets, which wind their way between quaint fishermen's cottages.
Throughout the town there are fascinating shops, craft markets, museums and galleries. St Ives has for many years been famous for its artists' colony and now boasts its own Tate Gallery, opened by Prince Charles in 1993. This spectacular building, overlooking Porthmeor Beach, houses paintings, sculpture and pottery by distinguished local artisits and will also stage exhibitions of works of art from the Tate's International Collection. We also have the Leach Pottery, celebrating the life and influence of its creator Bernard Leach, one of the founding fathers of the Studio Pottery movement back in the early 1920s.
Wheal Trenwith is situated adjacent to the Old Count House Guest House in Trenwith Square, a small quiet residential area with easy access to the town centre, harbour and beaches. A five minute walk away is the beautiful little town of St. Ives, regarded by many as the most picturesque resort in Cornwall.
Wheal Trenwith (Trenwith Mine) was constructed during the winter of 2004 after an old out building used as a workshop for the Trenwith Mining Company was demolished and reconstructed using all the original stone and timbers. It is, therefore, perfectly in keeping with the original building which dates back to circa 1825. It is full of charm and character and has been decorated and furnished to the highest standards.
Situated on two floors, the cottage is spacious and sleeps four people. On entering the front door, and leading off from a tiled hallway are two beautiful double bedrooms each individually decorated. There is a lobby with a washing machine and a downstairs toilet and washbasin.
