Renovated in 2018 this characterful cottage is located close to the Georgian harbour town of Charlestown. Take time to explore the fabulous attractions located nearby.

Just 2 miles inland from the Georgian harbour town of Charlestown, you will find the gorgeous cream cottage of 42 Boscoppa Road. With its proximity to the South West Coast Path as well as the charming cathedral city of Truro, a stay in this cottage not only gives you the chance to take time out from a busy life but to also explore this beautiful area of the country.

Wake up to the smell of croissants coming from the bright and breezy kitchen and head down to join everybody at the large breakfast table. The lounge is a perfect spot to relax if staying at home or why not head out for a light al fresco lunch in the enclosed garden? If the weather is good, the BBQ is the perfect addition to any holiday and on cooler days, the homely decor will welcome you inside. At night, sink into the crisp fresh linen in the master bedroom, a comforting retreat after a busy day.

You won't want to miss a day out in Charlestown, 2 miles away, where the tall ships sit magnificently on the historic quay. Easily recognisable if you are a Poldark fan, it is certainly worth a visit. Enjoy a lovely afternoon picnicking on the vast sands of Carlyon Bay, 2 miles from the cottage, with Fowey to the east (8 miles) and Mevagissey to the west (9 miles). Take time to visit St Michaels Mount (42 miles), one of the most romantic spots in Cornwall.

We had hoped the cottage would be closer to the port / quay than it was so it was a little disappointing to find it was not a realistic walking distance and parking in the port is expensive. Having said that, we managed really enjoyed the holiday. Despite not being close to the port, the cottage is well placed as a base to visit other towns and vilRead morelages which we made the most of. Be aware, the cottage has low ceilings, 1 toilet and the shower is very height restrictive. Hide

Nice cottage, very comfortable in a fair location. Parking space for a small car only. Lovely welcome with fresh flowers and cream tea.

This cottage appeared to have been very recently decorated and furnished throughout and was therefore exceptionally clean and modern which made it a lovely place to stay. The rooms are all of adequate size. The location enabled us to walk (approx 25 minutes) to Charlestown harbour, the beach and coastal path and it was only a short drive to the EdeRead moren Project/Hangloose, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and St Austell train station.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
