Breathtaking 2 Bedroom Luxury Cornish Cottage with Panoramic Sea & Harbour Views with Hot Tub - Featured on Channel 4's George Clarke's Amazing Spaces Situated on a beautiful bay in South Cornwall where seals & dolphins are regularly spotted & local fisherman bring in their daily catch. Less than 5 minutes walk to the local restaurants, bars, pubs, ice-cream shops & ancient Grade 2 listed Port showcasing exquisite tall ships and famous for the film set of Poldark & Alice In Wonderland
The beautiful village port of Charlestown has played host to many famous figures in its time, from Poldark to Alice in Wonderland...and most recently George Clarke, who featured Harbour Lights, formerly known as the ‘Loo with a View', on his hugely popular ‘Amazing Spaces' TV programme. It's not hard to see why George was so captivated by the intricate work lovingly carried out on this imaginative and elegantly restored property.  Built in 1771 as a fish and net cellar, the building was later renovated into public conveniences before we rescued it from its ramshackle state in 2015.  The building has now been fully renovated into a truly luxurious pet-friendly two-bedroomed holiday hideaway, full of natural character and marine-inspired style, featuring truly unsurpassed sea views from the cliff top.  Great care and attention has been taken with the design and furnishing of every room to ensure perfect harmony with the beautiful coastal surroundings.  Ancient reclaimed timber décor and solid oak doors add chic touches of time-honoured style, alongside the more contemporary pure white Italian marble worktops and soft grey backgrounds that perfectly complement the magnificent bay and harbour views from the windows. The ground floor encompasses a spacious open-plan living area, described by George Clarke as fabulously "light and airy", featuring a fully furnished designer kitchen that looks out across the harbour.  Fire up the stylish log burner and watch the ships as they glide languidly by! Take the stairs and discover two exquisite bedrooms, one large double featuring glorious views over the harbour and Charlestown Bay - with a luxurious Heritage bath right at the bottom of the bed.  The second, slightly smaller, bedroom features a beautiful view of the garden area. You'll also find a stunning Italian marble and stainless steel furnished en-suite, and a utility area and walk-in wardrobe featuring fitted storage, washer-dryer, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. Underfloor heating and a Sonos sound system with three independent zones runs throughout, so that wherever you happen to be, you'll be effortlessly able to set the perfect mood! Simply download the Sonos App on your smart phone and away you go! The views become even better outside, when experienced with a glass of bubbles from the lavish four-seater hot tub looking out across the sea!  There's a slate patio with wash off area that's particularly handy after a sandy day on the beach, and a beautiful garden with decked terraces and colourfully lush flowers and plants that have been carefully selected to make the most of their surroundings. Discover Harbour Lights' namesake at the end of the garden...a quaint little lookout shed which in times past was home to the searchlight that guided the Tall Ships safely into harbour.  Here you'll find two benches carved from the old roof timbers, creating the perfect romantic hideaway. Oh - and just in case you're wondering whether any remnants of the building's former history remain, hanging proudly above the downstairs bathroom are the original ‘ladies' and ‘gentlemen' signs… We just couldn't bring themselves to flush those away! You'll find it extremely difficult to tear yourself away from this sea sanctuary, but if you decide to venture out and about, why not take your dog to Charlestown beach for a run, perhaps with some seal and dolphin-spotting along the way?  Watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch before taking yourselves off to indulge in a gourmet seafood meal at the award-winning Falmouth Bay Seafood Café in Truro, another of our stylish dog-friendly retreats. The ancient Grade 2 listed port is steeped in historical architecture...along with a glittering touch of celebrity from its regular use as a film set. So set sail to Harbour Lights and enjoy an invigorating and relaxing break with genuinely breathtaking sea views you won't forget in a hurry!
The beautiful village port of Charlestown has played host to many famous figures in its time, from Poldark to Alice in Wonderland. Go off in any direction along the coast and you’ll find a range of wonderful cafes and restaurants.
  • Harbour Lights will knock your socks off if you are after a relaxing break with great views and facilities

  • This is a special place, in particular for a 'couples getaway'. We went as a family (two teenage girls) and though a squeeze in the spare room for the girls we all found it a great place to spend a week exploring the local walks, beaches and food. Notwithstanding our stay included a visit from 'Storm Dennis' it was a fantastic week and we enjoyed watching the weather coming into the bay.

    Malcolm2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place in a great location with lovely restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Charlotte was a great host who was available to help with anything required. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Thanks! X

    Dan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a nice place harbour lights is. Location is perfect with amazing views & the accommodation is brilliant.

    Ed2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This really is a ‘gem’ — absolutely stunning property with luxury finish, in a truly superb location! Walking distance to local beaches, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and everything you will need. We never used our car at all during our stay, and wakening up to the sea views every morning...just ‘wow’!!

    Warren2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great

    Robert2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Well where do I start!! The property it’s self is nothing short of amazing. Charlotte kindly accommodated an early check in which was much appreciated. My dogs thoroughly enjoyed their stay with lovely complimentary doggie bags. The views from the hot tub are to die for and there was nothing better than relaxing in the bath looking out at the ocean at the end of the day. The scones and the bubbly definitely made it that little bit more special if that’s even possible! Charlestown is beautiful and the recommendations from the welcome pack where much appreciated. Longstore was a special place for a very nice steak. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to be able to stay again soon.

    Toni2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte and Joey’s place is a gem! A wonderful location with spectacular views and easy access to quaint Charlestown. Charlotte went above and beyond by getting us a travel crib for our 20 month old. I will miss the relaxing nights of hearing the ocean from the master bedroom and relaxing in the hot tub. Charlotte even had scones, Cornish cream, milk and bubbly awaiting ya upon our arrival! A class act. Not to mention the place was spotless and had everything you needed and more. The closest Tesco is about a mile away so make sure you get essentials before getting there. Charlotte had general hand soap and shower gel but if you need laundry detergent and shampoo you’ll want to bring it for your stay.

    Saint Austell, England, United Kingdom

    Over 290 visits all with great reviews. Guests also say that our photos don't do us justice, trust them, this is a perfect destination for complete relaxation and privacy. Close the gates and stay put! Two supercool spaces The Bespoke Cabin with woodburner and the Summerhouse are set in a private meadow. The Summerhouse at the top of the paddock has views, fab for sunbathing or cloud and star gazing it has a deck and firebowl. Lovely setting nestled below Helman Tor. Children over 6 welcome.
    Built for purpose the cabin is a one off alternative and self contained beautiful space. It is not a mobile home/kit or attached to my property. It is a converted field shelter Bespoke design not a kit!! It is a separate entity along the lane from my property and set within its large and beautiful 1.5 acre meadow with views. Dimensions are 6m x 4m. Small but pefectly formed.The ground floor has a kitchen and living space combined with a woodburner. The living space is double height which gives a feeling of space. Also on the ground floor a bedroom with double bed and ensuite shower room. A heavy curtain can be pulled to separate the downstairs living and sleeping areas. The Cabin is light and airy and all windows are double glazed and the cabin is twin skinned with full insulation. There is an electric radiator in the bedroom area, which can be moved around.The second double bed is above this room on a mezzanine level accessed by a ladder, there is limited head height here on the mezzanine but this makes it a snug and cosy space, with blinds which drop down for privacy. Not suitable for younger children. Not suitable for ages 2 to 6 older children could be considered. There is a freeview television with radio. No wifi. Good 4g coverage...especially in the Summerhouse. Probably more suited for a couple but four adults or two extra older children would be fine. Romantic or retreat! Private and a lovely setting. Officially used for engagement surprises and Honeymoons. I can arrange balloons or cake or anything to make your celebration special, just ask. Access to the mezzanine nook is by ladder! Outside space is private and extensive and although next to the lane this is a very quiet valley. You have a private paddock with a summer house with deck at the top of it for lazydays watching the sky or sunbathing on the deck. Ideal star gazing very little if any light pollution. A fabulous firebowl is also situated by the Summerhouse. There is a smaller fire pit down by The Cabin and bbq. Ideal cycling/walking country. On the Saint's Way situated below Helman Tor. Beside Breney Common Nature reserve. Also on cycle route 3. Very little light pollution. Situated in the geographic middle of Cornwall so easy to access coast and most famous areas. Please message me for any more information. One night stays subject to availability please message for details.
    We are on the Saints' Way here and walking distance from Helman Tor a special and beautiful place. Also Breney Common Nature Reserve is adjacent to the cabin and a haven for wildlife. The nearest pub is 2.5 miles away the Crown Inn in Lanlivery, the Kings Arms pub in Luxulyan is also close with great food and atmosphere. Fowey and Lostwithiel are approx. 7 and 9 miles away. No public transport nearby the nearest train stations are Bodmin Parkway and Par both 7 miles away and this would be a great base for a cycling holiday being on the Cycle Route 3 . By appt I could collect from a train. Happy to help with ideas for trips if you can tear yourself away from here and the cabin has maps and tourist info for you to browse. Games and binoculars if you just want to hunker down!
  • The best air bnb I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Carol and her cabin are both amazing. From the outset you get a good feeling from Carol’s warmness and kind heartedness and on arrival you can see that she has put her soul into this beautiful cabin. The setting is idyllic and the cabin itself is truly unique. Every little detail has been thought of and the little touches make the cabin feel a home away from home. It’s cosy, romantic and homely - a real rare find! I can not recommend this place enough. The decor and architecture are incredible and Carol’s easy to follow instructions mean using the wood burner and outdoor fire pits are a doddle. There isn’t WiFi (not an issue as you are there to relax and enjoy your surroundings and I found it nice to be disconnected) but if you want to watch a movie in the snug upstairs room on a chilly evening perhaps download something before arriving. There are many beautiful coastal walks in easy reach by car; the coastal path to Polperro is beautiful and a trip to the beach at East Looe is a lovely way to spend the afternoon with a Cornish ice cream. The Bodmin Moore’s are on the doorstep as is the Eden project. Thank you Carol for sharing such a wonderful space with us! 10/10 - a must visit for everyone 😊 I would also recommend a lunch visit to the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery just beyond Lostwithiel (approx 15 min drive) - good food, friendly staff and a very sweet resident cat living in the garden centre shop!

    Kitty2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Cabin is a unique and wonderful place to stay. Carol has made this place romantic and quirky and is a wonderful host. The summerhouse at the top of the field is a lovely extra that you don’t get at most places. If you want to escape from the rat race and have some romantic time alone with that someone you love this is most definitely the place to stay x

    Ben2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Carol has been an amazing host, she was extremely understanding and welcoming when we arrived an hour ahead of schedule. The Cabin is a very cosy and homely place to get away for a few days and is perfectly placed for the Eden Project and some great local seaside towns. We look forward to staying again!

    Elliot2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it 😊

    Richard2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Cabin was truly beautiful - it was everything we’d hoped for and more. Carol has thought of everything; the personal touches (games, umbrellas, lanterns, etc) made the place even more special. The decor is also brilliant - very homely and comfortable to the point we spent more time in enjoying the fire and games than we did out in the end! Carol is also a fantastic host with brilliant communication and attention to detail. We were overall delighted with our stay and cannot wait to return.

    Kassie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Cabin is a perfect place to get away and unplug! We really enjoyed switching off (we had no phone reception and there is no wifi) and relaxing in beautiful surroundings. The Cabin has everything you could need when you are away, Carol has thought of everything. The kitchen is well stocked and we cooked in every night. There are lots of games and books and a TV. We didn't make use of the Summer House but can imagine it would be lovely when it's a bit warmer! You definitely need a car if you are staying here and there are no pubs or shops within walking distance. We visited the Eden Project - it's less than a 15 minute drive. Loved our stay here, we will come back!

    Sarah2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect, absolutely spot on. Stylish and cosy little hideaway. Carol was great at checking us in and keeping in touch. Beautiful little cabin.

    Corina2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is so cosy - stylishly decorated and full of everything we needed, Carol had thought of it all. From keepcups to torches, to reusable shopping bags to board games. The log burner was perfect, bed was comfy and shower piping hot. Check in process was really easy. Would definitely visit again! The area is incredibly quiet, no noise or light pollution so you get a really good view of the stars. Not much around so bring supplies. We walked up Hellman Tor which was very cool. All in all a fab weekend

    The SIPHON offers a special glamping holiday where your carbon footprint will be minimal - we source as much as we can from local suppliers and ask our guests to recycle/compost. The SIPHON is off grid - solar power provides electricity for lighting and charging mobile phones - and there is a 'green' waterless toilet. A really exciting AND DIFFERENT holiday experience with outside space for barbecuing and play. Perfect for FAMILY celebrations, children AND dogs AND close to the EDEN PROJECT
    Enjoy the comfort of the wood burning stove, melt marshmallow over the fire pit or cook your meal in the open air! Close to the Eden Project, The Siphon railway carriage offers a totally different holiday experience. Stay in this converted railway carriage with comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, COSY WOOD BURNING STOVE (first night’s fuel FREE thereafter £5 a pack) separate compost toilet and an amazing hot shower, 12 volt electricity for lighting and phone charging and a fire pit. A great off-grid glamping experience. Although listed as sleeping eight people, the Siphon itself sleeps UP TO SIX (bunk beds can only be used by children of six or above) with an additional two people being accommodated in The Toad BRAKE VAN which is close by, at a small additional charge The Siphon RAILWAY CARRIAGE is nearly 60' long, divided into three separate bedrooms, one with a king size double the SECOND with two single beds, plus an additional THIRD bedroom with bunk beds (not suitable for very young children). In addition two adults can be accommodated in The Toad brake van which is just a few yards away, offering the facility for two families or a larger group of friends to stay. There is a sitting/dining area with WOOD BURNING STOVE, fully equipped kitchen with gas cooker plus an outside dining area when the weather is warm.The Siphon can accommodate SIX people in three separate bedrooms(and up to 8 people in total using both carriages). The living space and one of the bedrooms have double doors which lead out onto raised decking - perfect for al fresco dining - and a fully equipped kitchen area with gas cooker, work tops, sink and storage plus an enormous, very efficient cold box on the balcony. We change the ice packs as and when necessary for our guests. The Siphon is 'off-grid' - there is no mains electricity only 12 volt lighting and a charging point for phones. Sorry, no tv or electrical appliances! There is a cold water supply inside the wagon and an amazing outside hot shower and a ‘green ‘ toilet a very few steps away (less than ten feet). Outside and on a lower level to The Siphon is a firepit and seating area (just wooden planks on blocks)! where you can enjoy a drink (or two), watch the stars or listen to the sounds of the country whilst filling the fire - we can sell you bags of logs (£5 bag for kiln dried wood) - sorry but we are unable to provide free fuel for either the Wood burning stove or the firepit. Fuel for the stove MUST be purchased from us at £5 a pack although we supply your first pack free of charge. (Logs, kindling, flamer firefighter and matches). You will share your outside space with the birds and the many wild animals which live around - foxes, badgers, deer, otters, squirrels and many more smaller mammals but the inside of the Siphon is warm and secure. Fall asleep to the sound of the nearby river and wake to the dawn chorus of the birds. The Siphon is not for the frail or timid - the doors are the original heavy wood ones and the catches are also original - marvel at the workmanship which went into the making of this grand old lady and marvel yet more at the way in which she has converted so magnificently into this unusual holiday space. We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests who come with open minds to enjoy this unusual and definitely unique glamping holiday destination. We hope that everything will be perfect for you and it will certainly be a new and exciting holiday experience for everyone who stays. Our younger guests have delighted in the magic of staying on a 'train' and Train Teddy will be there to greet them. Lots of space for running around, outside games and a range of indoor games for families to enjoy if the weather isnt good. The Siphons - the telegraphic name for these commercial carriages - carried milk in milk churns from the West Country to the cities of the UK. The Siphons were based on the chassis of passenger carriages and often were added to the rear of express passenger trains travelling from the West Country in order to transport milk and other perishables as quickly as possible to London and other centres. There were louvres cut into the wooden sides at two levels to allow for greater ventilation and these we have retained as much as possible in 'our' Siphon. This is truly a piece of railway history, particularly as there are only a handful of Siphons still in existence and many of these are in a very poor state. We describe The Siphon as an unique 'glamping with style' experience - a beautiful and spacious area in a railway carriage - but perhaps you will have other ways of describing her.... Our guests will enjoy the Siphon, the surrounding area and have access onto miles of surrounding trails and the walk or cycle to the Eden Project. The Siphon is positioned on one of the sidings of the Trenance Valley Line - one of the last branch lines built by the Great Western Railway or the GWR - 'God's Wonderful Railway'. This line only carried commercial traffic. It was authorised in 1910, opened in 1920 after the first world war and eventually closed in 1968. A word of warning - the river is close by and is NOT securely fenced so children will need to be supervised but what an experience for everyone who stays here! We also feel that The Siphon experience may not be entirely suitable for very young children - children of three or younger have stayed very successfully and have been enthralled by the experience but, parents, be aware! no washing machine, only an outside shower and no tv! But there are plenty of positive things to offset these. Being close to nature, plenty of 'family' time with no digital distractions, walking, playing outside or playing some of the games which are inside the Siphon, melting marshmallows at the firepit, cooking supper over a wood fire, having evening sing-songs around the fire, partying - your choice - some or all of these! The whole area was an industrial site so be aware that there are drops, uneven surfaces and other hazards - but common sense and care will prevent any accidents. We are happy to suggest places to visit, suggestions on where to eat and walks accessible from The Siphon or slightly further away. The Siphon is in a rural position in a valley setting close to the River Vinnick - we could bore you with more historical detail but you can read all about the area when you are here. Centrally positioned for exploring Cornwall, close to the south Cornish beaches and only a short drive to the surfing beaches of the north coast - just a perfect holiday retreat! There is public transport but limited - do please try to bring a car or rent one when you get here - mainline trains at St. Austell, about 1.5 miles away, a few buses and, of course, taxis. You can also walk directly from The Siphon into St. Austell using the trails which cover miles of the surrounding area, or you can walk to the Eden Project using the trails. The Siphon is not connected to the national grid - electricity is 12 volt supplied via solar energy. Therefore - no tvs, no hairdryers, no washing machines -but plenty of peace, relaxation, bird song, playing games, conversation, good food and wine - the list is endless. There is a cold water supply connected to the sink in the kitchen and there is hot water to the shower and basin outside. We aim to keep our 'carbon footprint' as small as possible and at the same time offer our guests a truly unique holiday experience. We therefore ask all guests to recycle as much of their rubbish as possible (tins/plastic bottles/glass jars and bottles, cardboard and paper are all collected) and to buy local produce whenever possible to reduce 'food miles'. The Siphon has a wood burning stove installed which heats the main living area - an excellent heat source to keep away any chill. Please note that fuel for the stove must be purchased from us and guests are asked not to burn any rubbish in the stove. PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING PEAK PERIODS AND SCHOOL HOLIDAYS THERE IS A MINIMUM BOOKING PERIOD OF THREE DAYS. At all other times the minimum booking period is two days apart from a few weeks in November/December when we are happy to accept ONE DAY BOOKINGS. THE TOAD: We have a second carriage available which sleeps 2 adults - if your party numbers more than 6 please ask about this which is available at an extra but discounted price. The Toad brake van was used on the Great Western Railway at the end of long trains carrying commercial traffic. It has the original sand boxes supplying sand to the braking wheels to help slow down the train and although now converted to holiday accommodation the original features of the wagon are still present. The Toad offers a living space with seating and a double bed plus a kitchen with hob and sink. There is cold water only into the kitchen sink and a further tap outside. Outside is a fire area for outdoor cooking if the weather permits. The Toad is only available for renting in conjunction with The Siphon as it shares the outdoor shower and toilet and for groups of over 6. Very occasionally The Toad can be used as a stand alone unit but only when The Siphon is not being used. Minimum rental periods are then two days out of season and three days in season (July and August, Christmas and New Year and all school holidays). Please ask for more details. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR USING THE TOAD IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SIPHON - PLEASE ASK BEFORE REQUESTING A RESERVATION. The Siphon itself - all 60' of her space - the immediate surrounding area including the firepit for outside fires and barbecue area and access onto miles of surrounding trails - all this is available to our guests. We are here to answer questions, help with suggestions of places to visit, change the icepacks in the giant cold box as and when necessary, provide information for local sightseeing - as little or as much help as you might need. The Siphon is in a rural position in a valley setting close to the River Vinnick - we could bore you with more historical detail but you can read all about the area when you are here. Centrally positioned for exploring Cornwall, close to the south Cornish beaches and only a short drive to the surfing beaches of the north coast - just a perfect holiday retreat! Public transport isn't great - the main line railway station is at St. Austell (about 1.5 miles away), Newquay Airport (about 11 miles away), cross channel ferry at Plymouth for France (about 40 miles away) but local bus services are infrequent and we really do suggest having a car at your disposal, even if you hire one when you get to St. Austell. Guests staying in The Siphon need to be slightly different in their outlook on life - enjoy the outdoors, maybe walking or cycling, surfing or swimming, sailing or kayaking - prepared to spend the evenings playing board games or sitting outside watching the stars - barbecue some freshly caught fish (from one of the nearby harbours) - just a few suggestions........
    Very close to the Eden Project and within easy reach of Heligan Gardens and the beaches of the north and south coast.
  • Quirky and lots of fun. Lovely location with everything you need.

    Becky2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful train carriage, great location and not in the middle of nowhere as i originally thought. Very easy access into st austell. Fire had been lit for check in, so was lovely and warm throughout with a welcome pressie and some lovely plants. All rooms had extra blankets and a there was even a cute selection of hot water bottles provided to warm the beds due to the time of the year. The train has a lovely raised deck that overlooks a fast flowing river which was an added bonus. A truly different but wonderful stay.

    Nai2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really good time staying at The Siphon. It was lovely and cosy with the log burner going on arrival in the evening, which was appreciated on a very wet and windy weekend at the end of October. The rain made it even more of a great adventure for a 9 and 5 year old and something they'll be talking about for months to come. It took them a little while to come to terms with getting their boots and coats on in the night to go to the outside loo, but that will only make it more memorable for them. It was refreshing to be 'off grid' for the long weekend, no electronics and just a good selection of board games and a radio (both provided) which was set to Classic FM for maximum chill in the evenings. Now that we're back home, the children are of course back on their iPad's, but I like to think with a fond memory for the simple life. We'll definitely try to go back in the summer to make the most of the surroundings. As a side note, everything that was provided was of high quality and eco friendly where possible.

    Steve2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Jo have an amazing air bnb and I would recommend this venue to anyone wanting a unique glamping experience. All amenities needed were available and although it was cold there were many blankets and thick quilts to keep us warm and cosy. This would be a perfect venue during the warmer periods to go on long walks along the clay trail and enjoy the surrounding area. There was an abundance of information given for things to do, eat, travel information and even places to avoid. Wonderful hosts an a wonderful experience. Already thinking of returning next year.

    Emily2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Would 100% recommend Chris and Jo’s place! The scenery is absolutely beautiful, the siphon is so cozy and heart warming and the decor is gorgeous! The 5 of us loved every second and we all hope to return in the future.

    Jorden2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Family - including a toddler and two dogs! We had an absolutely fantastic time and Chris & Jo have done such a wonderful job restoring the carriage and turning it a lovely hideaway. Everything was so cozy and comfy, and there was everything you needed to make home cooking each day. The setting too is great, as although close to lots of places to explore, there was also a sense of being out in the wild! Thanks in part to an amazing outdoor shower, lots of trees and birds, the sound of the running river, and the fire pit to wile away the evenings

    Sally And Ben2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • An amazingly cosy and unique place to stay. Chris and Jo have thought of everything and the kitchen is very well equipped. The vast selection of board games kept the kids assumed for quite a while. A great base for exploring Cornwall from. We particularly liked Mevagissy and Porthpean beach.

    Kate2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous stay in the glorious Siphon with our 2 children. Cosy carriage with comfy beds and a super outdoor shower. Our children. Loved free range play and we enjoyed being off grid for a couple of days. We booked last minute and Chris and Jo were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommended!

  • Shonna and Ben were so friendly we learnt a lot and had good fun making the gin. The food was lovely. The tree house was warm with the fire and we had more logs then we needed. Also the food was really really good and and the vegetarian was really good for summer as well. They delivered it to us even though it was pouring rain and the food was still hot

    Morven2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay surrounded my nature. It was like staying in a Romany gypsy caravan in the trees! The hosts were incredibly welcoming and friendly and the gin and rum workshop was excellent. Definitely recommend.

  • Amazing tree house with everything we needed. Perfect surprise sponge cake when we arrived and the gin workshop was fantastic Our evening tapas was exceptional and the tree house so warm and cosy for such a wet February

    Sam2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed in the treehouse for my partners 30th and the whole experience was wonderful. The treehouse itself is comfortable and cosy with the log fire on, even over a dry but cold January weekend. The gin masterclass was interesting and fun - foraging for botanicals, homemade bread, creating our own recipes, taking our own gin home to share with friends- all brilliant! Also a big thank you for the breakfast and homemade Victoria Sponge, it was such a lovely treat and really made my partner's birthday special. Highly recommended and will love to return ourselves in the summer to try out some different gin flavours!

  • The house is exactly as lovely as it's portrayed. A sturdy cabin made of wood, with a rustic interior, almost medieval feel, in a secluded area with gorgeous countryside vistas where the air is pure, the silence is bliss and the night sky is full of stars. The big surprise is Ben and Shona's hospitality, which is just next level. They offered to pick me up from the station since I didn't have a car. They were generous and accommodating with my dietary requirements. There was a home made cake waiting for me in the house. Ben cooks breakfast and brings it round wrapped in aluminium foil, which really keeps the food warm. The tapas were outstanding, I was floored by the quality and generous portions. They took the initiative to bring round more logs for the wood burner since it was particularly cold and I might need them. I was expecting to feel at peace in the countryside, I wasn't expecting to feel spoiled! They really go the extra mile to provide a great experience for guests.

    Jorge2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing experience! A New Year we won't forget in a long time- from the hospitality, to individuality of the experience, both Shonna and Ben were fantastic hosts- couldn't have asked for more- thank you

    Sophie2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Touchstone Cottage is a lovingly restored 200 year old fisherman's cottage just a stone's throw from Mevagissey's working harbour on the much sought after sunny East Cliff. As a 19th century cottage, tucked away up a secluded cobbled path, you are unable to reach the Cottage by car; this ensures that you will enjoy a peaceful stay. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are within walking distance, while The Eden Project is just a short 20 minute drive. The nearest beach is 10 minutes away on foot.
    The upper floor of the Cottage is light and airy; a partition wall has been removed to create a 'mezzanine' bedroom, next to the bathroom. The bedroom has a lovely view across the cobbled back streets of the Village. Light floods down the stairs to the Living Room which features original floorboards which have been lovingly restored, and a log burning stove. There are exposed beams throughout and heaps of character. The cottage is painted white throughout, and features lovely Loaf furniture in the bedroom and living room. Downstairs, on the ground floor, the kitchen/diner features the prettiest slate tiles complete with underfloor heating. Should you choose to cook at home you will find that the kitchen is fully equipped with electric hob and oven, and a lovely pale blue 1950s style SMEG fridge with freezer box. The look is complemented by the mid-century Ercol table and chairs. Finally, a word of caution, the internal stairs are original and are therefore tight and steep, and the cobbled path leading to the cottage can be slippery when wet! I very much look forward to welcoming you. Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions.
    Mevagissey is a beautiful base from which to explore the surrounding area and you will experience a real slice of traditional Cornish life during your stay. In the village itself you will find many lovely shops to browse around alongside 'olde worlde' pubs, cafes and restaurants, where you can eat and drink locally sourced produce. The fishermen haul in their catch at the end of the day and both deep-sea angling trips and short mackerel fishing trips in the bay are available from the quay. The seagulls follow the boats in and are very noisy; just thought I would mention this as the cottage is very close to the harbour! During the summer months there are ferries that will take you from the harbour to Fowey or around the coastline. Mevagissey also has its own small sealife aquarium and museum. Mevagissey is surrounded by beautiful beaches which you can access from The Coast Path; the cottage is just seconds from the Coast Path. You can walk up 'The Cliff' to the top and follow the footpath to beautiful Polstreath beach (steps down) or you can walk over the top of Polkirt Hill and down to Portmellon beach, a sandy cove with plenty of rock pools. From here you can follow the Coast Path to Colona Beach at Chapel Point beach, and, if you are a keen walker, you can keep on walking to Gorran Haven Beach, and you might catch sight of seals, dolphins or even basking sharks on the way. Mevagissey does have its own small beach in the harbour if you do not want to walk. There are many other unspoilt beaches within 10 minutes' drive including Gorran Haven, Vault Beach, Hemmick and Porthluney 'Caerhays', to name but a few. Lovely unspoilt villages such as Port Holland and Portloe, the majestic Nare Head and Pendower Beach, and the Roseland Peninsula and its beautiful beaches, including Towan beach, are all within a 30 minute drive. You can also take the scenic King Harry Ferry across the Fal River and continue on to Falmouth. The North Coast is a short 40 minute drive away and there are surfing beaches at Newquay, Perranporth etc. Mevagissey also hosts its own Feast Week during the last week of June when the harbour is decorated with bright lights and flags, there is a full week of activities and on the final evening there is a spectacular firework display around the harbour. Local Beach Summary Mevagissey beach in the harbour (5 minutes walk) Polstreath beach (steps down) - walk up 'The Cliff' on the east side of the harbour to the top and follow the Coast Path (10 minutes walk) Pentewan beach - follow the Coast Path east of Polstreath beach Portmellon beach - walk over the top of Polkirt Hill (20 minutes walk) Colona Beach, Chapel Point - follow the Coast Path west of Portmellon (30 minutes walk)
  • Really charming cottage, nicely done up, perfect for a cosy winter weekend. 30 second walk from the harbour with lovely views and lots of nice places to eat and explore.

    Rosie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay .The perfect location to explore a great area of Cornwall

    Aaron2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the place and great location. We enjoyed seeing beautiful sunrises each morning from just over the hill. Pam was easy to communicate. Would definitely recommend and great for the dog too.

    Bethaney2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely old fisherman’s cottage, up a lovely old street in a lovely old town. The space was everything we hoped for, with a very comfortable kitchen and a lovely view over the town from the bedroom. It’s a stones throw from the harbour and its amenities, and well positioned for walks along the coast, a trip to the Eden project or a longer journey to explore other parts of Cornwall.

    Leonie2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great location, with everything you need for a break at the seaside. We enjoyed walking to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the coastal walk to Gorran Haven. A friendly village too!

    Martin2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in beautiful village. Perfect for 2

    Antonia2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is right in the heart of Mevagissey - so convenient for shops, pubs and restaurants. The property was stylish in it’s decoration and very comfortable. Lots of charm and a welcoming place to stay.

    Alex2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really good stay at Pam's cottage! It's in a great location we would definitely stay again next time we are in the area! Check in was very easy. Thanks for letting us stay!

    CLOSE TO the EDEN PROJECT The Mill is the ground floor of Bojea Mill. Although the building has four floors in total the ground floor is the only occupied area - the floor above is a party floor which we use for family clebrations when we have no guests staying. Visit at any time of the year and enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. Perfect for long walks - with or without a dog - wrapping up warm in the winter - superb dining opportunities...
    ********************************** ********************************** AND stay in The Mill which is the ground floor of Bojea Mill. The building was a corn mill, with a water wheel powered by water from the River Vinnick. However, the wheel is long gone together with most of the mill machinery. We welcome you to our home... TRAVEL TO CORNWALL for the weekend - under 5 hours on the train from Paddington or an easy drive. Relax in the Mill or explore the local area, go swimming on the south coast or surfing on the north coast, walk the coastal footpath, go beachcombing, trek the moors, visit THE EDEN PROJECT or THE LOST GARDENS OF HELIGAN - The choice is yours! Any time is a perfect time to visit - deserted beaches in the spring and autumn - mild weather, wonderful walks along the coastal paths, perhaps the opportunity to sit in the sun on one of the special Cornish beaches, or try your hand at surfing, sailing, kayaking, coasteering, windsurfing - all this plus the haven of The Mill to return to in the evenings. Cook in or eat out - The choice is yours! DOGS ARE WELCOME HERE! Walk straight from the door onto the surrounding trails - or even to Eden - or explore the local beaches - a dog's delight! A small charge of £15 for each animal per stay is made for your pet and please let us know if you are bringing your pet with you BEFORE you book. THE EDEN PROJECT The time to enjoy this world renowned project - spend the day learning about our dependence on plants and marvel at this amazing site - be inspired and learn to connect with others in new ways. THE MILL is a former corn mill which was water driven, but the water course was diverted some time ago. It now offers a spectacular space with stone walls and massive wooden beams supported by cast iron pillars. There are comfortable beds in TWO en suite bedrooms, a sofa which converts to a small double plus a further sofa made for curling up in with a good book, modern kitchen equipment and an enclosed garden. Perfect for one or two couples, friends or a family group of up to 6 (using a convertible sofa in the sitting room and/or a cot in one of the bedrooms). One bedroom has a king size double, the other two twin beds. If you require both rooms made as doubles please let us know at time of booking. The sitting room is large and spacious and offers the space for relaxing, playing games or watching tv or a dvd. Keep in touch using the free wifi (which is generally fairly reliable but we are unable to always guarantee this due to our rural position)! or do some research to make the best possible use of your time here. There is a small enclosed garden area immediately adjacent to the Mill with another 3 acres of grounds to walk through and with direct access onto the miles of nearby trails which are used by walkers, cyclists and horseriders but these trails are unlit and mainly rough surfaced and steep in places. Enjoy a leisurely walk to the Eden Project (4 miles or about an hour or two) or to the South Coast at Pentewan and Mevagissey along the miles of trails which criss cross the surrounding area. We are only too happy to suggest outings for our guests, quiet beaches, good walks, dog friendly areas, places to eat, the nearest shops, cheapest fuel, but the Mill is your home for you to enjoy for the duration of your stay. The Mill is an old building and we have retained the exposed granite walls in places out of respect for the origins of the building - it does NOT have a modern, plastered interior with double glazed, plastic windows but it DOES have enormous character and atmosphere. The beams are immense as they carried the weight of vast quantities of corn and these beams are supported by cast iron pillars which were made locally at Charlestown and there are gigantic pieces of granite in the walls, still showing evidence of oil stains from when the bearings of the cogs and wheels needed frequent greasing. This is not to the detriment of the building - its just a bit of its past history. We have many different species of birds visiting us throughout the year (the dawn chorus is quite loud!) and plenty of wildlife in the vicinity. In the spring you can walk amongst the bluebells, and later in the year enjoy the foxgloves. There is a riverside stroll which leads onto the trails. You may be lucky enough to spot some deer, or maybe a fox or badger and the last few summers an otter was spotted! The main line railway station is at St. Austell, just over a mile away. Local car hire firms will deliver a hire car direct to the station by prior arrangement. The airport at Newquay is within easy reach and it is possible to hire a car from there. Ferries travel from Plymouth (about 40 miles away) to France (Roskoff, Britanny). OUR OTHER PROPERTY - THE SIPHON, is a converted railway carriage sleeping up to six people - this is about 1/4 mile away along the former track of the old railway - and gives the opportunity of accommodating groups of up to 14 people between the two sites. Perfect for two or three families, a wedding group or a group of friends. The Siphon now has a wood burning stove to keep guests warm during the colder months. PLEASE NOTE: DURING PEAK PERIODS AND SCHOOL HOLIDAYS (Easter and July and August and the Christmas period) THERE IS A MINIMUM BOOKING PERIOD OF Three DAYS but at other times the minimum booking period is two days. Our guests will have sole use of the Mill's ground floor - a large area! The small enclosed garden area with parking. Access onto miles of trails (leading to The Eden Project, The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum and the South coast at Pentewan). As much or as little as our guests desire...we are happy to give advice on places to visit. Just let us know what works best for you! Public transport in Cornwall has its limitations! The main line train service covers the County right down to Penzance with branch lines serving Looe, falmouth, Newquay and St. Ives. However, we would always recommend having a car at your disposal - whether you drive down or travel down by train and then rent a car - this way you will be able to enjoy your visit and see so much more. Please be aware of the dog restrictions on some Cornish beaches - a list is in the Mill. OR perhaps VISIT THE EDEN PROJECT.. What about a special dining experience? Rick Stein (Padstow), Jamie Oliver 15 (Watergate Bay), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac) and Paul Ainsworth (Padstow) all have restaurants not too far away plus dozens more to choose from for truly memorable meals. Make your stay a gastronomic one! ****************************** PLAN YOUR VISIT! ******************************* Then why not stay with us - a short drive from the Eden Project or taxi ride or bus ride ( (which takes you into st austell town centre) or even a (longish) Walk. Easy reach of both the south coast and north coast and convenient to superb dining experiences in the County.
    Very close to The Eden Project - drive there in a few minutes, walk or cycle along the adjacent trails. Close to beaches and coastal walks
  • Clean comfortable slice of quiet Cornish charm. Perfect place to retreat but not too far from civilization to feel isolated. Amenities are only a short drive away to main town one way and choice of villages the other. Perfect for all reasons

    Nicola2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing! The hostess were great! Chris came up straight away when he heard us coming to welcome us and give us tips for were to dine, have some drinks and enjoy the area! I suggest it 100%! It can't be more traditional than that! An old Mill.. Exactly as it sounds! Majestic!

    Vasileios2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spot- everything we hoped for & more. Stylish and beautifully converted apartment in an old mill house in an amospheric part of Cornwall. Brilliant base for exploring. Super friendly hosts who left all kind of thoughtful touches. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend.

    Rachael2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful place, very clean, modern feel to a very beautiful old building without losing the historic charm. Beautiful well kept garden area, perfect outdoor area for dogs. The hosts were extremely helpful upon planning our visit and very thoughtful to add touching gifts to our stay which was very much appreciated. The kitchen has lots of equipment to use which is great! Lots of board games and just a very nice place all round !!

    Josh2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such a charming Cornish place to stay with lots of thoughtful touches and amenities that made it a home away from home. Really impressive renovation of the mill. Greatly appreciated the recycling and eco friendly bath and cleaning products as well as the delicious clotted cream fudge and delicious coffee!

    Anne2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Jo were fantastic and their place is perfection. Easy to find but nice and quiet, communication was quick and were full of useful tips for the local area. We also took our pup who also loved it and was made very welcome. Definitely recommend for a fabulous holiday!

  • The Sheep Shed is a cosy, quiet base in a great location to explore Cornwall. It's a self contained space with everything you need to cook, there is a lovely pub that does food a short walk away too. Lisa was a great host and communication was brilliant. We'll definitely be back.

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's space in a wonderful space to get to see cornwall, cosy and idyllic. Great in winter when we stayed but I'm willing to bet it'd be gorgeous in summer

    Luke2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We cannot recommended this as a getaway destination highly enough. It’s a beautiful little space in the back end of nowhere. Wonderful! Sadly our trip was cut short but we absolutely loved our brief time there. The instructions, communication, decor, location, price and tips were all spot on. Definitely stay here! We’ll be back again soon!

    Tom2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great little space with all you need. Folder full of recommendations. Parking right outside. Would love to return in the summer. Lovely local pub Crown Inn.

    Serena2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Sheep Shed is truly a lovely little space to stay in. It is very well equipped for the cosy and compact size, quite remote but lovely and peaceful. The instructions from the host on how to get there were accurate and helped considering I arrived when it was getting dark. The shower and toilet are compact but clean and the water was lovely and warm in the shower. Everything is well thought out, and even though I was there whilst storm Ciara was travelling in, it was very warm and cosy. The little welcome basket with cereal and fruit is a lovely little touch :) I definitely hope to return in the future for another getaway, hopefully with my other half this time! Thank you again x

    Emma2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect country get away! Our host went the full mile to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She was knowledgeable and welcoming and easy to contact. The Sheep Shed is cosy and equipped with all that you need. The location is central to both coasts. We would definitely come back and recommend to anyone looking for a quiet country break!

    Karla2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay! Exactly what you expect from the pictures and description. You're not too far from Bodmin to be able to go to a bigger shop or to a town if you want but you are very much in the countryside. Went for a 2 day trip to Cornwall and this was the perfect place to stay near lots of good places. Lanhydrock is a lovely national trust place to visit and had an amazing lunch down in Charlestown.

    Ania2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location to discover local attractions. Accommodation cosy and compact but very well laid out and contained everything we needed. Pub walkable and served lovely food.

    Nestled between St Austell and Carlyon Bay, Charlestown is a picturesque, historic fishing port on the South East coast of Cornwall.Having largely resisted the modernisation and commercialisation of some other popular destinations, Charlestown has held onto it's unique, quintessential Cornish charm. For this reason, it has been a popular backdrop to a number of film and television projects, including Poldark, Dr Who and Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Steeped in history, no visit would be complete without a trip to the Charlestown shipwreck and Heritage centre, which exhibits a fascinating array of artefacts, stories and information about the village and it's maritime history. Aside from the museum, Charlestown also has a couple of art galleries, a harbourside pub boasting excellent views, a small sandy beach and a number of small shops to browse your way through.Once a year the village holds its annual Regatta: a week long event featuring watersports, games, sports competitions and a carnival, all to raise money for the village. With plenty to while away a very pleasant day, Charlestown is well worth a visit.

    Kelly2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A great house in a great location! We appreciated having a dog-friendly house in this great location. We loved being able to walk down to the Charlestown beach each morning and evening, be within 5-10 minutes drive of beaches at Porthpean, Carlyon, and Par, and so close to grocery stores (Tesco, ASDA, and Lidl) for supplies for self-catering. The house was lovely and warm, stylish, and exactly what we were looking for. Would love to come back at some point.

    Jayme2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Westaway Cottage is a lovely property. Beautifully renovated, clean, cosy, comfortable, and in a fantastic location. The space worked really well for a mixed family group of six adults. We would love to come again in the warmer months, to take advantage of the south-facing garden!

    David2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, very nicely furnished and decorated, well equipped and high quality overall. Lovely big bathroom, plenty of storage and everything you need. Even better than photos.

    Small double bedroom with adjacent private bathroom in a modern and professional home. The bedroom itself is relatively small however perfectly suitable for one person.

It is a modern semi-detached three-bedroom house positioned at the end of the close and subsequently has a calm and relaxing feel to it, the house is clean, tidy and well-presented and I am very lucky to have lovely neighbours. I live here with my three cats, Josie, Tilly & Teddy who are naturally convinced that they are in charge and subsequently roam freely (please keep your doors closed if you don't want to have guests of your own). There is a well-equipped kitchen if you wish to prepare any meals – just be sure to load the dishwasher and try to be finished by ten so that I can get my beauty sleep!

The back garden is split over two levels, please feel free to make use of the top level where you’ll find a selection of garden furniture available on the lawn. Please feel free to use the sitting room during the working week days, I do reserve this to myself for the evening and weekends though.

  • Matthew was a fabulous host and the accommodation itself is great — exactly as it is described. A great room for both short and long term stays being close to many attractions. Having the shops in Par and the beach within walking distance is handy. You’d be hard pressed to find a more helpful, friendly, and welcoming host than Matthew.

  • We stayed in the Studio over Valentines weekend and we really loved our stay. The apartment is very clean, spotless in fact, and has everything we could have possibly needed. The weather was awful with storm Dennis so it was great that we had good wifi and tv when we wanted to escape the rain. The TV has Netflix so we could log in to watch what we wanted too. A lovely area of Cornwall to visit. Many places easily accessible. Nice all you can eat Chinese at the end of the road. Carlyon Bay is close and a very lovely place to visit. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, we will certainly stay again! It was a nice surprise to have a box of chocolates left for us too! Lovely hosts who always get back to us very quick. Perfect hosts! :)

  • We had a lovely 3 night stay at River Valley Retreat, communication was really quick and Sam was a lovely host. The space is decorated beautifully and was a brilliant base for us to explore Cornwall. Alongside this, the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need. I would definitely recommend visiting here, the best air bnb we have ever stayed in!

    Peggy2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing, couldn’t ask for a better place to stay, short walk to local shops. Not far from many places to visit. Had plenty of leaflets to look through for things to do in the area. Definitely would come back to stay again :) x

    Chelsea2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just had a wonderful 4 night break at RiverValley Retreat. There was everything we could have needed to make it perfect. Beautifully clean and some lovely touches like coffee, tea, milk and Cornish shortbread for when we arrived. Always helpful but never obtrusive as a host. Thanks Sam, hope to see you again.

    Pat2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

  • We really enjoyed staying at The Retreat. It's a beautiful, cosy space with everything we needed plus some thoughtful extra touches by Sam. It feels like a home from home. Great location to drive to neighbouring locations and lovely places to eat. Made easier with parking on their private driveway. Sam was easy to communicate with and gave us plenty of helpful information before we arrived. If we visit the area again we'll definitely stay here again.

    Sara2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

We were travelling this way to visit The Eden Project which was a 20 minute drive from the flat, very easy to get to. The communication between myself and Janice was really easy, quick responses and there were no problems at all. Overall the pictures is what you get and we didn’t expect anything less ☺️

    Little Poppies is a light and airy self-contained annexe with its own access; it is exclusively for the use of guests. We are situated on the outskirts of St Austell, within 5 minutes of Porthpean & Charlestown beaches. The property is a sun trap with a Mediterranean feel, sun beds are available on the decking area which are ideal if you are looking forward to some relaxation. Enjoy an evening of gazing at the stars from the lovely private hot tub in our garden.
    Little Poppies is a self-contained annexe exclusively for use of guests. The annexe is accessed via it's own front door; it has a kitchen, bedroom/lounge area, bathroom and access to garden with hot tub. Shampoo, shower gel, WiFi, tea/coffee, orange juice, bottled water, range of cereals, towels, bed linen, extra blankets and toilet rolls are provided. Ideally situated on the South Coast of Cornwall, with numerous beaches, coastal and woodland walks and attractions such as Charlestown, Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project, Fowey and Mevagissey. Charlestown harbour is approximately 15 minutes walk away; the harbour is unspoilt, listed and has been used recently as a key location for filming the remake of Poldark. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and gift shops to be enjoyed whilst taking in the breathtaking views out over St Austell Bay. St Austell is in mid Cornwall and is a great central location for Cornwall as there are a number of beautiful places within easy reach. There are a number of supermarkets nearby; Asda is within walking distance. We are dog lovers and have a number of small family pets including a few rescue dogs, they are very friendly and are always eager to meet new people. They do have access to the garden, however, we are able to manage them separately if you wish to use the garden.
    Quiet, friendly neighbourhood, a truly wonderful place to live.
  • Our stay at Little Poppies was far better than we could ever have expected. We knew it was a lovely place from the pictures seen on Airbnb but Lindsay and Tony's hospitality and their attention to detail topped it off and made our weekend in St Austell perfect. The place has a real homely feel to it and there were numerous extra bits provided such as books and games as well as information about the area to name a few. We will definitely be staying again!

    Krishan2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Poppies is the ideal place to stay and explore St Austell and Cornwall in general. The home is maintained to excellent standards and there are several little touches that will make you feel at home right away! Lindsay and her partner Tony were warm, kind, receptive and super helpful. I would 100% recommend this air bnb.

    Shani2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This was my first ever stay in an Air bnb, and I would definitely reccomend Little Poppies. The place was really beautiful and all the little thoughtful touches just made the stay even better. The hot tub was just perfect for relaxing in after a day of adventuring and exploring the area. Lindsay, Tony & Chloe were fab hosts. Nothing was too much trouble; they really went above and beyond. Thank you x

    Katharine2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lindsay and Tony are great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Little Poppies is a delightful space, stylishly decorated and has everything you could ever need (including prosecco and a cream tea waiting for you on arrival!). Overall we would highly recommend this air Bnb :)

  • Lindsay's place is a great place to stay if you are visiting Cornwall. It is very clean and so pretty! There are so many thoughtful touches- you notice more & more of them the longer you stay. And it was so reasonably priced! I'm glad it was within our budget.

  • We stayed at Lindsay and Tony’s place The Little Poppies and it was spectacular! Lindsay and Tony were wonderful hosts and made our stay far better than we could have ever expected. It was amazing looked after and clean and had all the best little touches that really blew our mind and the Hot Tub was just the cherry on top in the private garden. It was the best way to end every day. We would highly recommend staying at The Little Poppies. We would definitely go back the next time we go back to Cornwall.

    Cameron2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • A brilliant apartment with great facilities in a wonderful location. Very highly recommended.

    Bonnie2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolute GEM of a home, with wonderful hosts. I decided on a weekend away (alone) not having done anything like this before, and can say hand on heart I had the most amazing time. Lindsey and Tony showed me around, and most importantly how to use the hot tub, but then leave you to get on with things privately without interference, although you know if you need them they are only next door. Little Poppies is just idyllic, the attention to detail is faultless with little added touches to make you truly feel 'at home'. Home made scones, fresh orange, and all types of tea and coffee, among a variety of other delights await you, there is no need to worry about shampoo or shower cream these are all provided too!.... The hot tub was amazing after a day of walking around taking in the fab scenery, an added bonus to this incredible home... I did not want to leave, and have been telling everyone of this wonderful find. Am definitely going back to Little Poppies again. Thank you so much Lindsay and Tony, truly cannot wait to come back again x

  • This was a great little place! Easy to get to from the train station and had lots of cozy blankets! Would absolutely stay again if I was in Cornwall!

    Kendra2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is an adorable little flat, the bed is very comfortable, and it’s a great place for exploring the local area. You’ll feel very warmly welcomed here! It’s quite chilly, the oil heaters work well but I’d recommend bringing slippers and a hot water bottle if you tend to get cold at night. There’s a very quirky cottage feel to the place, which is lovely.

    Emily2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the Sweet Shop cottage for New Years Eve, for a country getaway. The house was so small and cosy with a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom upstairs. The house was decorated with local artwork and had a variety of leaflets about the local area, Chris also told us where to visit which was great. We were welcomed by Chris who explained how to work everything and left us a cream tea which was a lovely treat after our 2 hour drive down. The kitchen had the basics and there were supplies to make tea and coffee, oven, microwave, fridge, kettle ect. The bathroom had an amazing shower and the bedroom was spacious with a really comfy bed and TV for entertainment. The house had no central heating so the floor was really cold (take slippers!) but upstairs was fine. There were oil heaters on both levels to keep us warm. We walked down to Charlestown Harbour which was beautiful with the sea, rocks and fairy lights everywhere. It was the peaceful break we were looking for and I can't recommend Chris' house more!

    Brittany2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication, and easy check in. Chris provided scones, jam and cream, which was a lovely touch. Comfortable and self contained, parking space available, made it a great place for a short stay. Easy walking distance to Charlestown Harbour!

    Will2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place.. full of character and ideal to have a parking space so close to the town..

    Sarah2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and quirky little place. Fab location for local shops/ pubs/ beach. It is on the road so a little noisy, but you can’t hear this from the bedroom. Great for 2 people. The cream tea was lovely - thank you! The parking was good, but wouldn’t recommend if you have a large vehicle/ 4x4. The hosts were super welcoming and friendly.

    Penstrassoe 3 Within walking distance to Charlestown and easy access to the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens and many beautiful Cornish beaches, this room will provide you with a comfortable base to explore the wonders of Cornwall.
    A double room with TV, Amazon Firestick, tea & coffee making facilities, newly refurbished family bathroom.
    Locally there is an excellent provision of food choices within walking distance. We are also perfectly positioned to explore the entire County. Previous guests have visited The Historic Port of Charlestown (Poldark has been filmed here), Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Within an hour you can be walking on Bodmin Moor or swimming in the blue waters of Porth Curnow. Beaches are plentiful! The most local is Carlyon Bay with others such as Porthpean, Pentewan, Caerhays and Polkerris a short drive away. If you fancy exploring more widely head for the Roseland Peninsula and look for Carne, Pendower and Caerhayes. The North Coast is more rugged and a fantastic spot to watch the sun set. Personally I love, Newquay, Crantock, Holywell Bay, Polzeath, Harlin Bay & Perranporth. St Austell town centre is a short stroll left out of the house and up the hill. It has a variety of independent and high street stores and is definitely worth a potter if you have time. Truro is larger and the Cathedral City of Cornwall. There are many shops, restaurants, cafes in the city as well as the Museum for Cornwall and of course the stunning Cathedral! If you like walking I thoroughly recommend ‘IWALK Cornwall’ which is a free app and has loads of fantastic circular walks for every taste, covering the whole of Cornwall. A walk costs £1.99 to download and uses GPS to guide you every step of the way. Eating and Drinking Costa – great for a coffee and snack breakfast – turn right out of the house and cross at the double roundabout. Follow the road towards Mevagissey and you will find Costa in the complex on your right. You can’t miss McDonalds and KFC which are also in that area! Frankie and Bennie’s, Wetherspoons & Prezzo are in the White River Place, turn left out of the house, 2 mins walk up the hill along with a host of independents including Smorgers, Nepalese Gurkha Restaurant, Watermargin Chinese Restaurant, Walkers Fish & Chips If you fancy something different head for Charlestown to eat or drink. There is a plethora of bars, restaurants and coffee shops, some of which are listed below. All have a pleasant atmosphere & serve high quality food but please make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment*: The Longstore* - Charlies Boathouse* - The Pier House Hotel* - Rashleigh Inn * - The Harbourside - Charlies Coffee Shop – Pentewan is 10 min drive and offers, Simply Judes Brasserie and The Kingswood Restaurant can be found 5 minutes away in London Apprentice A more complete guide can be found: https://www.eatoutcornwall.com/restaurants/st-austell/
  • Jer’s place was spotlessly clean and good value for money, he was a very friendly host and asked multiple times if everything was ok and if there was anything else he could do to make my stay better. Would definitely recommend Pentrassoe if you're looking for a cheap and cheerful place close to St Austell town centre.

  • This was a lovely place to stay whilst we were visiting St Austell. It was very clean and comfortable, with really nice touches, such as a TV, Wii console and a bookshelf. The fridge was stocked with milk, butter and fruit juice, with cereal and bread also, which was a really great surprise. Anna was helpful with communication beforehand as well, and was very accommodating - letting us check in really late at night at late notice. A really great place to stay, and lovely views of fields outside the windows to wake up to! Would recommend to friends staying in the area in the future.

    Jennifer2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

    A charming self catering sea-side cottage full of character. Let From Friday to Friday Forming part of a terrace of very old fisherman’s cottages built right into the rocks on the north side of Portmellon Cove. Its situation, with commanding views overlooking the sea, is quite magical and second to none. At high tide dive from the rocks in front of the cottage and swim in deep water. At low tide it’s a simple climb down the rocks to the sandy beach and rock pools below.
    Middle Floor This is the main entrance from the road. The Sitting room has easy chairs a wood burner style electric heater, TV and DVD/VCR player, bed settee, telephone (incoming calls only). The bathroom has a bath with shower attachment, WC and basin. Top Floor Bedroom No. 1 has two pairs of sturdy bunk beds and leads into Bedroom No. 2, a double bedroom with a washbasin. Bottom Floor Consists of the Kitchen/Dining room dominated by a large open fireplace and a table, which comfortably seats six. The kitchen has a modern electric oven/grill, induction hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. The shower/wet room includes a WC basin and electric shower ideal for washing down after a day on the beach. A small lobby for coats and boots leads out onto the Patio. The Patio With commanding views of the sea, across to Chapel Point and the beach below it’s a great place for eating outside or just simply taking the sun and watching the world go by. The patio adjoins Corner Cottage next door, has seating and a table. Steps lead down to a lower shared patio and the rocks.
  • We loved our stay in Mermaid cottage. It was everything we’d hoped for and more. Some of the highlights include the amazing view and the sound of the sea from our bedroom windows, the lovely big fire that kept us warm and cosy every evening, the general simple, cosy feel of the place and the cleanliness. Our four girls were thrilled with their bunk beds and with the cottage in general - they spent most of the holiday wanting to ‘stay home’ and play hide and seek or explore! We will absolutely come again and we highly recommend this cottage.

    Rachael2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mermaid cottage is a truly magical place to stay. The view from the terrace is just stunning and we loved how close we were to the sea. It is perfect for paddle boarding, you can launch straight from the rocks below the backdoor. Port Mellon is a lovely, quiet bay with a beach to explore and beautiful coastal walks. We can't wait to go back to Mermaid cottage - we loved our stay.

    Kirsten2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • A very special cottage in the most incredible position by the sea. We had a magical time here.

    Rosie2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the cottage is amazing. Never stayed so close to the sea before. Port Mellon is charming and nice and quiet compared to Mevagissy which is just a short walk away.

    Melissa2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed many times at this cosy retreat, perfectly situated as it is on the rocks above the ever changing tide. Looking forward to many more return visits.

    Pascale2019-07-26T00:00:00Z

    Modern house with a lovely garden in a quiet estate. Less than a 5 minute walk to the train/bus station, which has direct links to the Eden Project, London and the North. The town centre is also less than a 5 minute walk away. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, gas hob, kettle, toaster, washing machine, dryer, etc. A bright, spacious lounge opens onto the garden through double doors. The driveway has room for two cars and parking is also available on the road.
    The house will have new furniture to what is shown in the photos. Guests are welcome to use the kayaks, fishing rods, bbq, and whatever other fun things you can find in the garage. Please be respectful of neighbours; the estate is primarily occupied by young families who have to wake up early for jobs and school runs.
    Most people who come to St Austell come for the things it's close to: beautiful beaches, amazing gardens and of course, the Eden Project. Don't get me wrong, these are all very good reasons to visit! But there are two little gems I'd like to give a mention that are within walking distance of the house. The first is the mining museum of Wheal Martyn. St Austell was a clay mining town after all, and the museum does a fantastic job of taking you through the history of the clay mining industry and how everything worked. With a wealth of indoor displays and a beautiful outside area to explore, there are a number of ways to enjoy your visit there. The second is Menacuddle Well, which is a magical little place that is free to visit. It lies just outside of town, where the St Austell river flows through the valley. It's not a tourist destination, there are no toilets or cafes, just a few very old man-made structures (including a small waterfall) in a woodland clearing that was recently unearthed and is now maintained. Unfortunately it is right next to a busy road, but once you're down at the water's edge you can hardly hear it, and the whole place is very peaceful and calming. I'll be more than happy to provide maps for walking or driving to each of these places, as well as some tips to stay off of the roads as much as possible if walking.

  • Had a lovely stay at Catherine’s! Beautiful contained apartment that was very clean and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. We will be back!

    Becca2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a stunning little place this is! Such a beautiful view across the valley. The perfect place to curl up with a cuppa and a good book taking in the view- especially if there's a good sunset! Everything was thought of by Catherine down to the small details in each room. Everything was made easy and straightforward. A beautiful place to stay which felt quite luxurious yet still private. Less than 6 mins into St Austell and easy driving distances to surrounding beaches, harbours, villages and towns. A great find.

    Tracey2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful location and the view from the apartment was beautiful. Added bonus of the secluded seating area outside. Catherine made sure that we had everything we needed upon arrival. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Mevagissey is a wonderful little Cornish fishing village in South East Cornwall. Ideally located within easy reach of both The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. The tiny seaside village is packed with old Cornish cottages complete with narrow alleyways leading to converted fish cellars offering gift shops, galleries, pubs and cafes. Once a major Pilchard port, now the harbour boasts a smaller fleet, many of which provide sea tours, or boat trips to Fowey situated further up the South coast. The Harbour provides an ideal back drop for a fish and chip supper, followed by a stroll through the town at dusk.With a eight minute drive to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and 30 minutes to the Eden Project, Mevagissey provides a excellent location for the keen gardener. Gorran Haven nearby offers an alternative day out as well as Pentewan with its fresh water dock basin. You can continue south along the coast down to Caerhays Castle and Porthluney Cove. Cliff walks in all directions along the coast offer spectacular views out across the St Austell Bay.
  • Great location and great accommodation, we will definitely come back to Ferryman’s Cottage.

  • This was just what we needed for two for a week; we needed Friday to Friday and not many were available. Excellent views over the inner harbour. Quiet location, almost no traffic underneath, only occasional foot traffic immediately in front (probably a bit different in summer?). Not large but very comfortable. Nice to have a real bath after a wet walk. Very narrow and quite steep stairs; no worry for us but could be a problem for some. Electric hob very basic old-fashioned style but quite adequate. The wifi key was not visible and asking the 'host' Richard said I should ask the housekeeper which wasn't as helpful as it should have been. I didn't bother as we had good 4G reception and a goody bag with plenty of data, and I think it unlikely the housekeeper would have known; it doesn't strike me as part of their role. If you really need wifi double-check details before booking. Richard is not really the host, but agent for cornwallscottages, but in his role as host as far as Airbnb is concerned he should have been more helpful.

    Stephen2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is even prettier in real life than it is in the photos, and that's saying something! We came here directly after our wedding, hoping for a quiet, relaxing few days on the Cornish coast, and it was exactly what we were hoping for. Richard sent very detailed and easy-to-follow instructions very early on, which was extremely helpful, especially given how busy we were before leaving. The house itself couldn't be better located - the sea, the harbour and the town all just a few steps away - but also extremely quiet and peaceful. It is beautifully furnished, very clean and cosy. The town itself is lovely, with plenty to do nearby and the coastal path easily accessible. All in all we had a wonderful few days and would recommend this to anyone.

    Zoë2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was the perfect break away from the stress of everyday life. The cottage itself is very beautiful with lots of character. It is perfectly located on the harbour with stunning views and easy walking distance to the pubs / restaurants. This cottage was so good we will definitely be back again.

    Andrew2018-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Has a wonderful week long stay in the beautiful Mevagissey. The cottage is very quaint and in a perfect location. The view of the working harbour is exceptional. The cottage has everything you could need. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use. Comfy bed, good storage space just outside. The bath was great and the shower too. We loved having a real fire in December. There was even wifi, which we weren't expecting! There is a fairly steep climb to the cottage, so anyone with mobility issues may want to consider this. But in less than a minute you can be at the harbour side. The car had to be parked across the harbour, about 3/4 km away, but a pleasant walk looking at the boats and shops (and seagulls!) even in the rain. Easy to unload and load your luggage just below the cottage, but may be a little trickier at the height of tourist season. We have stayed in Meva on several occasions, but this is our new favourite place to stay and we will be back. There was even a very lovely ginger cat who invited himself in, which we were very pleased about! Such a friendly chap. We shall give him full marks on Catadvisor. (His name is Willow or 'The Harbour Master' and he belongs to a woman called Molly who lives up the road! There is also Ralph, a black cat, who is also a great local feline!)

    Claire2018-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Had a really great couple of days at the cottage. Fantastic location a short walk from everything you need. The cottage is well equipped and has everything you need. The only thing I struggled with was the mixer taps on the shower! Parking was easy even in the middle of August!

    Cindy2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • The views from the cottage are absolutely lovely. It helps that Mevagissey is still a working fishing village. It makes it more interesting. The cottage is really funky. It's been carved into the rocks and as such the walls follow how the place was carved out. Namely, the walls are not square and instead tend to be curved in places. Otherwise the place is very comfortably and had everything we needed. I would certainly stay there again if we were to return to Mevagissey.

    Claudia & Steve2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy cottage with spectacular views. Clean and tidy. Very close to stores and restaurants. It was a little chilly, even with the space heater. A wood burning stove is available if you have the means to light it.

    Penstrassoe 2 Within walking distance to Charlestown and easy access to the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens and many beautiful Cornish beaches, this room will provide you with a comfortable base to explore the wonders of Cornwall.
    A double room with TV, Amazon Firestick, tea & coffee making facilities, newly refurbished private bathroom.
    Locally there is an excellent provision of food choices within walking distance. We are also perfectly positioned to explore the entire County. Previous guests have visited The Historic Port of Charlestown (Poldark has been filmed here), Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Within an hour you can be walking on Bodmin Moor or swimming in the blue waters of Porth Curnow. Beaches are plentiful! The most local is Carlyon Bay with others such as Porthpean, Pentewan, Caerhays and Polkerris a short drive away. If you fancy exploring more widely head for the Roseland Peninsula and look for Carne, Pendower and Caerhayes. The North Coast is more rugged and a fantastic spot to watch the sun set. Personally I love, Newquay, Crantock, Holywell Bay, Polzeath, Harlin Bay & Perranporth. St Austell town centre is a short stroll left out of the house and up the hill. It has a variety of independent and high street stores and is definitely worth a potter if you have time. Truro is larger and the Cathedral City of Cornwall. There are many shops, restaurants, cafes in the city as well as the Museum for Cornwall and of course the stunning Cathedral! If you like walking I thoroughly recommend ‘IWALK Cornwall’ which is a free app and has loads of fantastic circular walks for every taste, covering the whole of Cornwall. A walk costs £1.99 to download and uses GPS to guide you every step of the way. Eating and Drinking Costa – great for a coffee and snack breakfast – turn right out of the house and cross at the double roundabout. Follow the road towards Mevagissey and you will find Costa in the complex on your right. You can’t miss McDonalds and KFC which are also in that area! Frankie and Bennie’s, Wetherspoons & Prezzo are in the White River Place, turn left out of the house, 2 mins walk up the hill along with a host of independents including Smorgers, Nepalese Gurkha Restaurant, Watermargin Chinese Restaurant, Walkers Fish & Chips If you fancy something different head for Charlestown to eat or drink. There is a plethora of bars, restaurants and coffee shops, some of which are listed below. All have a pleasant atmosphere & serve high quality food but please make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment*: The Longstore* - Charlies Boathouse* - The Pier House Hotel* - Rashleigh Inn * - The Harbourside - Charlies Coffee Shop – Pentewan is 10 min drive and offers, Simply Judes Brasserie and The Kingswood Restaurant can be found 5 minutes away in London Apprentice A more complete guide can be found: https://www.eatoutcornwall.com/restaurants/st-austell/

  • Lovely location. Can’t fault the view and ease of access into Mevagissey . Loved this cottage

    Fiona2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful cottage in a delightful, unique location. All furnishings and fabrics are of very good quality. Fully equipped, we lacked for nothing. Two reserved spaces in the nearby carpark were invaluable.

    Neil2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Corner Cottage’s cliffside location on Portmellon Bay is simply perfect; it’s close enough to shops and restaurants in Mevagissey, but it’s also a peaceful haven away from it all by the sea. The charming fisherman’s cottage is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the thick white towels are luxurious. Tom communicated well to any queries we had. We loved being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean...

    Catherine2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing location, close enough to walk in to Mevagissy. The local pub was very welcoming with good food. We were lucky with the weather and swam every day, could almost have been abroad if it wasn’t for the slight chill of getting into the water initially! My children did a bit of free diving and assured us that it was as beautiful under the water as above it. The coastal walking was great too, the Hidden Hut at Portscatho is worth a visit. We took kayaks and a paddle board so an outside tap would have been useful for washing them off but we appreciated water is probably metered and not all guests would use it sparingly. Thanks again, we would love to return

    Jane2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The most perfect location for a holiday: spacious 3 storey cottage with large windows in every room looking directly onto the sea. Shops, pubs and coastal footpaths all in easy walking distance. Bliss.

    Kate2019-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Hallane Mill is an immaculately restored cottage nestled at the bottom of a valley where it meets the sea with a shingle beach and unrivalled views. You will not find a better spot for a romantic retreat in Cornwall.
    There are very few properties in Cornwall as private as this, yet so close to the sea. The coast path actually meanders around the back of the house and there is a shingle beach 5m in front of the property. The Mill itself has been beautifully restored, with amazing attention to detail, and tastefully decorated and furnished while maximising character features. Imagine watching the sun rise over the sea while sipping a morning cup of tea or coffee followed by a refreshing dip in the crystal waters.Porthpean Beach is just to the north and is sandy, safe and sheltered with rock pools at the south western extremity while at the opposite end the cliffs are mainly populated by nesting birds. There is an 18 hole golf course just above it on the cliff top. The Eden Project is just to the east of St Austell, the Lost Gardens of Heligan a short drive to the south west, the picturesque Roseland Peninsula with its quaint fishing villages is within half an hour's drive and Newquay's vibrant surfing lifestyle and golden beaches are a similar distance to the north.Accommodation Ground Floor: Entrance into small utility room with doors to: Downstairs WC with handbasin.

    Trenarren is equidistant between Porthpean, Charleston and St Austell to the north and Pentewan, Mevagissey and Caerhays to the south.Porthpean has a marvellous central location, a mere 5 minutes from the centre of St Austell yet sitting on a south east facing hill with a splendid view of St Austell Bay. The eighteen hole golf course has a mix with the front nine in a parkland setting bordering Penrice Woods with distant rural views of Cornwall, the back nine has an unsurpassed view across the bay towards Fowey. Porthpean Beach is sandy and sheltered and is a safe place to swim, paddle, explore rock pools or watch the nesting birds on the cliff.Less than a 10 minute drive away is the pretty harbour of Charlestown which offers plenty of places to get food and drink, a sweet shop, a couple of galleries and a Ship Wreck museum. It can also be reached by means of the coastal footpath from Porthpean. It is an excellent village to visit for a relaxed pub meal whilst enjoying views over the harbour and out to sea. There is also a small beach.Pentewan (just north of Mevagissey) has an industrial past that is still evident in the village today. It was once a busy harbour built by a local mine owner for shipping china clay. Inland is the Pentewan Valley Trail which is 4km of woodland and riverside walking following an old gauge railway to the village of London Apprentice. The village also has a small, friendly pub with tables on the old harbourside. There is a wonderful sandy, beach which is ideal for families.The town of Mevagissey is just a 5 minute drive in a southerly direction. Mevagissey is a wonderful little Cornish fishing village in South East Cornwall. Ideally located within easy reach of both The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. The tiny seaside village is packed with old Cornish cottages complete with narrow alleyways leading to converted fish cellars offering gift shops, galleries, pubs and cafes. Once a major Pilchard port, now the harbour boasts a smaller fleet, many of which provide sea tours, or boat trips to Fowey situated further up the South coast.

Cliff walks in all directions along the coast offer spectacular views out across the St Austell Bay with the coastal path only a few minutes walk from the cottage.St Austell was once the major producer of the world's China Clay. Now with cheaper foreign imports the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The brewery has recently started exporting its products across the Tamar River to England, so you may just find where your favourite brew is made.

    For just two people, Connie's Cottage stands within 250 metres of Charlestown's famous harbour and beaches and of the South West Coast Path. Stone built and with many original beams and slate floors the cottage is very characterful but has been sympathetically modernised and includes gas fired central heating. There is non-restricted car parking available immediately to the rear of the cottage however in high season it may be necessary to park in the nearby pay car park.
    To the front of the cottage is a grassed pedestrian way with a "his-n-hers" garden seat with views over the adjacent gardens and towards the neighbouring fields.
    Charlestown is becoming well known for its excellent range of restaurants and two Inns whilst The Shipwreck and Heritage centre makes a fascinating visit. We are within a stones throw of the South West Coast Path and the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within a 15 minute drive as are the lovely seaside towns of Fowey and Mevagissey. The cottage is situated on a quiet grassy path but is close to the centre of the village and there is therefore the potential for late evening noise as customers leave the restaurants and inns.
  • The cottage was perfect for a long weekend away. Great location for coastal walking and lovely village. We had everything we needed in the cottage to cook a full roast on 1 evening. There was plenty of space, and heating came on to ensure we were never cold! Would definitely stay in a location owned by Patricia again!

Hosts were amazing, quick responses and helped out with anything we needed. Lots to see and do in the area. The harbour itself has lots of restaurants and pubs.

    Natasha2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
