Lovely house, absolutely spotlessly clean and fantastically equipped - everything you could ever need and more! Five minute walk and you are in the harbour area of Charlestown.

Reviewed by Sarah 4th October 2019

A great little cottage with a small garden and a parking space (for a mid size family car). A very well equipped kitchen provided everything we needed. The cottage is located in a courtyard which is just a 5-10 minutes walk down to Charlestown harbour (for those with mobility issues there is a car-park close by the harbour). There is a pub close byRead more and a couple of restaurants to choose from, also a few gift shops and gallery to browse. All in all a great cottage in a great location. Hide

Beautifully and comprehensively fitted out with first class equipment and furnishings, this cottage is superbly positioned in Charlestown: far enough from the bustling harbour to be quiet but near enough to enjoy a short gentle stroll down at any time of day.

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.
