Top Sails is a really nice modern apartment although it is on the second floor, once all our cases bags etc were taken up the 30 odd steps they were not a problem. Inside it is very clean and well appointed. The flat is in a good position for traveling around the local area being close to the A 390. There are several large super stores for food jusRead moret down the road. Eating out in Charlestown is good we do recommend booking at weekends. All are in walking distance about 10mins, downhill.

Lovely spacious apartment in a quiet area, convenient for Charlestown harbour just a few minutes walk away. We were very comfortable there and the stairs up to the apartment were no problem. Very pleasant sitting on the sunny balcony and enjoying the delicious cream tea that was left for us.

St uphill and inland from the harbour but sea views are fine when the weather is good. Charlestown is a attractive and interesting place to stay, with good eateries and a thought- provoking Shipwreck Museum. Tall ships in the harbour; cliff walks, cosy beaches, - what else could you want? Even the mixed weather was fine as it soon gets sunny from aRead moreny early sea mist. Hide

A lovely flat with open views, well equipped and comfortable. Easy walking distance to Charlestown. The area was quiet and relaxing, and parking easy. The only potential problem are the stairs up to the flat but if that is not a concern this flat is a good place to stay.

Spotless apartment in a fantastic location with a designated parking space - the only downside is that it is a third floor apartment without a lift. In beautiful Charlestown and only 5 minutes walk to a couple of restaurants and pubs.

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.
