An Mowhay is situated in the small hamlet of Brane, just west of Sancreed and five miles from Penzance. The hamlet is 1.5 miles off the A30 and lies in the depths of the farming community of West Penwith. Footpaths lead in all directions, including Carn Brae, St Just, Sancreed, St Buryan and Newbridge. The cottage offers quiet and peaceful respite after a day on one of the beautiful beaches or visiting local attractions.
West Cornwall is home to artists, potters and art galleries such as the Leach Pottery in St.Ives, The Tate and the award-winning Penlee House Gallery and Museum. Contemporary art can be found at Newlyn Art Gallery. Local artists exhibit their work throughout West Cornwall and many studios are open during the season.
