This central location just off the B3298 Scorrier to Lanner road, is small rural area known as Little Beside, between Chacewater and St Day. The shop and amenities of St Day are approx. ½ a mile way and should cater for most daily requirements, with a convenience store, Port Office, public house and butcher shop. Larger and more varied selection
of shopping, schooling and health facilities are approx. 4 miles distant in Redruth, whilst for those travelling further afield the A30 is approx. 1½ miles away at Scorrier. This area is interlaced by a plethora of footpaths and former mining tramways, some of which link Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall with Devoran on the south coast of Cornwall.
