A traditional cottage situated at the heart of Charlestown, a harbour village with an industrial past. This property is ideal for exploring both Charlestown and St Austell.

Historic towns, secluded coves and long stretches of beach aside, the South Cornwall coast offers visitors lots of interesting things to do. If you are looking for a gorgeous retreat to take advantage of this beautiful part of the country, then come to Cobblers Cottage. Whether you crave cosy days at home in front of the wood burner effect electric fire or a walk around the ancient port with its tall ships, this charming corner cottage is just the place for you.

Inside the property, cool ocean tones and nautical touches bring a fresh perspective to the original features of the cottage. While the exposed beams and painted Cornish stonework offer a glimpse into its past, lightly painted woodwork and contemporary furniture bring a touch of modern life. Sink into bed in the lovely romantic bedroom with its sloping ceiling and cottage window, ready to start the next day invigorated and ready for more adventures.

Step outside the cottage and you'll find yourself in the heart of Charlestown. The first point of call must be the harbour with its magnificent tall ships, featured in the TV series of Poldark and Hornblower, as well as its Shipwreck and Heritage Centre. Then trek or cycle through the China Clay Pits trails around St Austell, 2 miles away, taking in the tropical Eden Project on your way. The three beaches of Carlyon Bay just over a mile away offer an unusual yet beautiful backdrop for a day at the beach.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

What a wonderful little cottage in the stunning Charlestown. Its quaint cute and well thought out. Who knew you could get so much in such a little space. I will be back

This cottage is clean and has most things that you would need for 2 people as a base for Cornwall. Good value for money and a great location for the harbour , pubs and restaurants. The only downside to the property was the unexpected ammount of traffic as the property is on the corner of a busy junction which starts from 6am onwards, the cottage haRead moreving no double glazing .

the cottage is really nice and cosy (compliments for making such a small space so attractive and the olcation is just great) - except for the fast that traffic practically runs through the lower floor of the building. We would have liked to know that it can be really noisy at times.

Reviewed by Tracey 10th August 2019

Small, perhaps good for 1 or 2 nights as it is a noisy busy area. Good location for getting to beach and eden project. No children, as the road and pub noise is not a good environment for them.

Cobblers Cottage was very good and cosy. We did find the stairs a bit difficult (Due to our age). We didnt do any cooking, but there were cooking facilities for making a simple meal.

Reviewed by Beverly 15th June 2019

The cottage was very well equipped and the thoughtful welcome pack was appreciated. The basics were there, washing up liquid etc. It was clean and comfortable, perfect for us two, with big bath towels ( my pet hate, tiny towels). Lots of places to eat on the doorstep, supermarket a short drive. No outside sitting area but right on the harbour side Read moreand beach. Lovely Hide

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.
