Avarack is a semi-detached property located in the rural village of Pendeen, with incredible sea and countryside views from the rear of the property. Avarack is the perfect choice for getting away from it all. This three bedroom home is beautifully furnished throughout, with patio doors that lead from the spacious sitting room into the garden. There is plenty of off road parking and a lovely feeling of a home from home.

'The Avarack' is a coastal feature on the cliffs a quarter a mile below the house, which at low tide forms a natural 'pool'. Perfectly located for the chance to revel in nature and explore the far west of Cornwall, Avarack is only a 20 minute drive away from Land's End or Cape Cornwall, the only cape in England. Situated conveniently, only a two minute walk away are the two local pubs, The Radjel and The North Inn, when you are ready to reflect on the days sights and sounds. Or you may prefer to just enjoy a glass of wine sitting in the garden of Avarack entertained by the wildlife and tranquil views.

May 2022

We had a really lovely stay at Avarack. Our accommodation was far better than we had expected, the photos didn't do it justice. The open-topped bus to St Ives was an experience not to be missed! We were disappointed with Lands End though, a lot of work in progress. Can't recommend the North Inn enough, (especially Sunday Lunch and the steaks). We were made very welcome by the staff and also the locals.

Holidays in Pendeen

Once a thriving mining area, Pendeen is home to  the award winning Geevor Tin Mine Museum, which was one of the last mines in the country to close. Retaining the feel of a traditional Cornish village, and with stunning scenery on the doorstep, Pendeen is perfect for a self catering summer holiday, out of season visit, or short break.

Although secluded, theres still plenty on offer in this part of West Cornwall. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Pendeen is also recognised as a site of special scientific interest and a world heritage site. Pendeen is the perfect place to explore the ancient sites of Chun Castle and Chun Quoit, and the rugged coastline for which North Cornwall is renowned. Walkers will be in their element with access to the South West Coast Path, and many inland walks. 

Top tip

Things to do near Pendeen

Levant Mine and Beam Engine

Visit this National Trust attraction, and you can see the historic steam-powered beam engine in action, explore the underground tunnel and discover more on the family trail, at one of Cornwall's most famous mines.

Geevor Tin Mine

Another popular attraction in Pendeen is Geevor, an old tin mine which has since been preserved and now serves as a museum to Cornwall's rich industrial past. With breathtaking views, and plenty to explore, it provides a great day out for the whole family.

Yew Tree Gallery

The Yew Tree Gallery near Pendeen features displays of locally made pottery, jewellery, scluptures and art work. There is also a sclupture garden, with herb garden and views across rolling fields.

Farmers market

The fornightly farmers market in Pendeen provides an insight into the Cornish way of life, offering local produce and a relaxed atmosphere, and Trewellard Meadery is just down the road where you can sample fruit wines and top notch grub in a traditional setting. Read more about Pendeen farmers market on our blog.

Pendeen Lighthouse

Another popular attraction in the area is Pendeen lighthouse, a dramatic landmark which once housed Britain's second largest set of foghorns. With the South West Coast Path passing to the south, it makes an enjoyable stop-off point on a coastal walk.

Portheras Cove 

Portheras Cove is just a short walk from the lighthouse, which is one of Cornwall hidden gems. This gorgeous sandy cove is a hideaway for locals, and is also home to a small colony of seals!

Very comfortable house and quiet location Easy to explore the local area without driving to far.

This home is one of the best we have stayed in Very well equipped with the best quality of everything you could possibly think of , spotlessly clean and very comfortable and affordable , We have been several times now and it feels like home, We love it x

We stayed at Avarack for 12 nights whilst completing on the purchase of our new home which was a 5 minute walk away. It was so lovely to come back to a clean, comfortable and well equipped property after a day of painting and moving furniture around!

We will definitely recommend Avarack to friends visiting the area.

Lovely house, very clean and had everything we could possibly need. Great location in terms of visiting other things in Cornwall but it isn’t as near the beach as the description sounds, which we were a bit disappointed with but we did drive to several beautiful nearby beaches during our stay.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry if the description made it sound like this property was right on the cliffs, as we try to ensure that our photos and descriptions are accurate and honest. We have always tried to give an idea of the proximity to the coast in the photos and whilst it is a walkable distance for those who like to explore on foot; the walk isn't for everyone, so we have now amended the description to highlight that the property is ¼ mile from the coast. For those who don't fancy that walk, there are many beautiful coves, beaches, and villages to explore within a short drive from the property. We are glad that you still enjoyed the location and hopefully it is somewhere that you would still return to if you were ever coming back to Cornwall. Tanya, Customer Services

Averack is a stunning place to stay
Very well equipped and of high standard, everything was so spotless We had a fabulous comfortable stay, We have stayed there a couple of times and can’t wait to go again ! Aspect properties are the best !

Nice property- better in real than pics. Location is great on the calmer side of Cornwall. Beach near by, great pizza place in ST Just. Would visit again.

A well maintained and beautifully decorated home from home. Exceptionally well equipped, excellent location. V warm welcome. The house is v creaky. This was not a huge problem for us but did disturb our family at night if someone got up - This would have been a problem when my (light sleeping) boys were young. Loved this part of the Cornish coast. Family of 5, Hertfordshire (boys 11, 15, 16 years)

Thank you so much for sending in your feedback. The owners are always very grateful for constructive comments as they would always want everything to be just right for their guests. Having now received a few comments on this, they had a flooring specialist attend who have addressed it. We are really pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this property and this beautiful part of Cornwall and we hope that we will see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Aspect Holidays have been a breeze to deal with, from booking to receiving welcome information. Our cottage was spotless and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We loved it and would have no hesitation using Aspect Holidays or returning to the cottage we booked. Thank you Aspect.

Lovely place with beautiful surroundings. Had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Would certainly return.

Second visit and third one already booked! Very good location. This was our first Spring stay at Avarack and the flowers on the cliffs were just beautiful. As usual we wore out our shoes rather than our car!

Avarack is superbly equipped and very comfortable with great sea views from all the back rooms. We found the village very nice and quiet, handy village store and a couple of pubs. The location is great for exploring southwest Cornwall.

Averack is one of the best places we have stayed in, very well equipped with everything you would possibly need and more, everything was top quality, the house was soooo spotless the sofas where just soooo comfortable , the beds and bedding lovely , could not fault the place at all , can not wait to return

This was our second stay at Avarack after having thad o re-arrange our Easter holiday from 2020 due to the pandemic. The house is lovely and fabulously located with very easy walking access to the SW Coast path and the wonderful tin mine coast, as well short drives to Marazion, Penzance, St Just and Sennen Cove to the south and St Ives to the north. There are no shortages of excellent places of eat and drink as well as visit, so it really is a superb location. The house is lovely inside and well equipped. The configuration of the sitting room means that once seated, it is not possible to enjoy the wonderful sea views, which is a shame. The upstairs floorboards are also very creaky, which does cause a disturbance at night when moving around. Overall though a wonderful place to enjoy one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world.

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed a second stay at the lovely Avarack. It really is in a great location, isn't it? Thank you for your comments on the floorboards, we have now (in April 2022) had confirmation that the owners have had a flooring specialist in, who have dealt with the noisy floorboards, so should you return, you can enjoy this property even more. Thank you again for your helpful feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

A really lovely cottage in a great position for exploring the far west of Cornwall. The whole place was spotless when we arrived which was very reassuring. We really didn't travel far in the car at all but did do a lot of walking! St Just is a really good shopping centre now and there are several farm shops locally so we didn't go far to shop either. A proper home from home.

Nice spacious property, well equipped for a family. Unfortunately we wouldn’t stay again as the floor boards upstairs are so noisy and woke us up if someone got up early in the morning or went to the toilet in the night. Sleep is so important on holiday so if this was fixed we would rent this property in the future.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear this. It is not something that has been highlighted to us before, so we will keep a close eye on further feedback and check on this on our next inspection of the property in case there is an obvious cause that can be easily resolved. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Lucy, Customer Services PLEASE NOTE: The owners have now had a flooring specialist in (April 2022), who have dealt with the noisy floorboards.

Avarack was very well equipped with everything you would need for your stay. Beautifully decorated, felt like home from home. Very comfortable beds, selection of books and games which was a lovely addition. Great location, and within easy reach of all beaches, as well as walks around Pendeen. Plenty of parking which is always a bonus with any property. Would highly recommend.

This beautiful new build holiday home was really comfortable and well equipped. There was ample parking for 3 cars. It is well situated to explore the whole area of West Cornwall.

Avarack is a spacious modern property in a great location. It is comfortable and very clean. So handy for walking the coast path or just exploring this wonderful part of Cornwall. We have stayed in this area many times and this property is one of the best would highly recommend it.

Avarack is in the perfect location to explore the whole of west Cornwall. The house itself is comfortable, spacious, light and airy and also spotlessly clean. There is plenty of storage space and everything has been thought of e.g. plenty of coat pegs and places to store numerous pairs of shoes. All the ornaments and paintings have been well chosen and really suit the house, making it feel very homely. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils that often aren't available in other properties. We loved this house and would certainly recommend.

This house is well equipped ,spotless clean modern ,light and airy , by far the best accommodation I have been in ,in this country so much so we have booked for 2 weeks next August we are a family of 5 with children aged 7,13,16 they all loved it ,body boarded every day at nearby Sennen Cove

A very well equipped and spacious house. Beds very comfortable. Well situated to visit many local attractions. Wonderful scenery and very near the coastal path for those who enjoy walking.

An excellent all round property in a great location very comfortable well equipped and one to return to.

This is a brilliant location and property for a family holiday. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. 20 mins to local beach and lovely little garden to sit in and relax after a day exploring. Best holiday in a long time. Just brilliant.

My wife and I have been hiring cottages throughout Britain for over 30 years and Avarack is up there with the very best. It was well stocked with your basic necessities such as bin bags, washing up liquid, kitchen towels and so on. There were more than enough cups, plates, bowls, glassware and cutlery available. Pendeen itself is a small village with very friendly locals who never walk by without saying hello. It is the perfect location for touring throughout Cornwall. And the icing on our cake was, the weather during our 2 weeks stay was fantastic.

A lovely comfortable cottage ideal to explore the local area from. Karen

This was our first stay in one of Aspect Holidays properties, and our experience was excellent. Avarack was so comfortable and stylish, it offered everything we could have wanted for a lovely week in West Cornwall and all of this in such an interesting location as Pendeen.

Only a very few cottages that we have stayed in have left us feeling completely satisfied at the end of a holiday. This is one of them. Comfortable, clean, well equipped and up-to-date - and a very good location.

We liked everything. Decor,furnishings,the appliances. The homely touches. Overall there is nothing we would change. View and location amazing. Will definitely return again. Perfect !!!!

A beautiful property, excellently finished and furnished and perfectly located for exploring the southernmost parts of west Cornwall. Ideally situated for exploring Cornwalls mining heritage, with stunning cliff top walks just on the doorstep. Access to Penzance and St Ives is easy by car, bus, or bicycle (if your up to it) and there are so many other great coves and beaches nearby to explore.

for us it was like home away from home, we felt very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay, would 100% recommend
