This house is a beautiful property - very well decorated and maintained. its a short walk from the harbour where there are places to eat and drink. I would highly recommend this for larger groups - all the bedrooms are spacious and en suite, allowing for privacy and comfort.

Topmast was a very comfortable holiday home, very well equipped with everything we needed, all furnishings and bedding excellent. Located in great area for visiting other parts of Cornwall. Only draw back for us was uphill walk back from the harbour but for those younger and healthier no problem..

Well appointed house in middle of quiet housing estate. Easy to access nearby places of interest. Local pubs & restaurants first class. Within walking distance but return walk up steep hill.

Really nice property, honest description from Holiday Cottages, everything was 'as described' close to a number of pubs and restaurants which are open in November and are in easy walking distance. The property is in a very quiet area of Charlestown, public transport to St Austell and Truro only a 5 minute walk. Property is well appointed throughoutRead more, dining area was a little cramped, lounge was comfortable and relaxing. 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.
