Pretty stone cottage in the village of Charlestown with its historic harbour, beach, and eateries, with easy access to many of the area’s beaches, towns, and attractions.

With a marvellous location in the historic village of Charlestown, the traditional stone-built cottage of Chy Marner is the perfect place to explore the ‘Cornish Riviera'. With its stunning facade and exposed beams, it gives a nod to the history of the area while introducing a contemporary touch. Walk down to the glorious tall ships that fill the harbour, made famous by the TV series Poldark and Hornblower and discover the fascinating history of the area in the Shipwreck Museum.

The light and airy open-plan living area on the ground floor is gently broken up by touches of bright colour, reflecting the blues of the ocean nearby. Sit back in one of the stylish chairs and enjoy a traditional cream tea after a busy morning browsing the shops and galleries of the village. Large glass doors open out to the part-cobbled street outside, giving a sense of space and light.

Beach lovers will love the fact that they are only 4 miles from the three beaches of Carlyon Bay. Shadowed by the Polperro Heritage Coast with its delightful resorts of Polruan and Fowey on one side, and the Roseland Heritage Coast, leading down towards Bohortha on the other, you are in excellent walking country. Days out include the Eden Project (4 miles away) and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (6 miles away).

Comfortable bed, good to have 2 bathrooms with under floor heating. Cosy, comfortable and nicely decorated. Good base, not really any views, but surprisingly private and secure.

Overall the property was very good, well equipped and comfortable. Perfect for a family of four. However our children being a young adult and a teenager both found the twin beds (a split double) extremely narrow. They absolutely loved Netflix though!

A fabulous flat/cottage extremely well placed within a range of great pubs and restaurants at walking distance. Very clean and comfortable. Parking was easy when instructions given are followed.

Great position. Lovely property and lots of thoughtful details, e.g. Cornwall Monopoly, milk in fridge on arrival etc. Almost perfect, but does not have outside space, or even view of outside to gauge the weather.

The property was very clean and well appointed in all areas. The only major challenge was access to the car park which requires great care if driving a larger vehicle. The main bedroom was excellent in every way but the 2nd one was a little cramped and had limited storage. If set up as two singles, shutting the bedroom door would be difficult.

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.
