Burra Heritage Cottages

These row cottages are National treasures.

Constructed in 1856 by James and Emma Tiver they are listed on the Register of State Heritage Items, the Register of the National Estate and are regarded as unique examples of Cornish/British architecture. Barry and Maureen Wright have carefully restored all cottages for bed and breakfast accommodation. Winners of two regional tourism awards as well as the 1995 St George Bank/National Trust Conservation Award in South Australia, they offer an opportunity to experience a genuine heritage cottage with modern comforts or, as one person wrote in the visitors' book "a journey to the past, travelling first class". Each cottage is fully self-contained. One cottage has two double/queen bedrooms and one has a double and a twin, perfect for a family. (See more information for bed configurations)

Each bed has Sheridan linen, blankets, a quality quilt and an electric blanket. Bathrobes are supplied.


The open fire heats the cottage efficiently. All wood is supplied and a barrow on the back verandah is replenished each day. Electric heaters are supplied. The kitchen is equipped with crockery and cutlery, pots and pans. Generous breakfast provisions, including country style bacon and free range eggs, are included in the tariff, along with cereals, home made jams, biscuits, fresh orange juice, bread of your choice, plunger coffee, Twining's teas and a fruit basket. Breakfast can be taken in the private cottage garden under the old almond trees, with a view of the rolling hills and the historic Redruth Gaol. Each cottage has its own TV and DVD player.
