Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall and situated close to the Eden Project and the historic harbour village of Charlestown, is this wonderfully, quirky and spacious house set off a quiet lane yet in the centre of the old market town of St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall.
Parking behind the house you enter down a few steps into the courtyard and then into this delightful holiday home passing through the kitchen and dining area into the magnificent hallway.
The character here exudes throughout with many curios and a collection of art assembled by the owners’ over many years.
The main sitting room is both comfortable and welcoming with a woodburner to complete the most cosy feeling.
The second sitting room leads out to the relaxing garden and patio, and upstairs are two double bedrooms, a dressing room and a shower room with a large walk-in shower.
Of an evening a short walk will take you into the town centre with a selection of pubs and restaurants to suit all.
With a fine choice of beaches close by, this area is often referred to as the 'Cornish Riviera' with superb coastal walking, as well as villages such as Charlestown and Mevagissey well worth visiting.
This really is an excellent and comfortable base for a holiday.

The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history.

Home to the St. Austell Brewery, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while sampling the delights of the local beer, after a tour of the Victorian brewery, and for those who love the surf and sand, St. Austell has plenty of both to choose from. Visit the beautiful sandy beach at Porthpean, or spend time at Carlyon Bay with its ever-popular shingle beach, a favourite for sun worshippers, but if you prefer a dip in the water, Polkerris is the place for you. Situated in a safe cove, it is renowned for variety of watersports. Whether it’s sailing, windsurfing or swimming you're looking for, Polkerris Beach has it all. Charlestown is a pretty, historical port just two miles away, famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, and is well worthy of a visit whilst staying in St. Austell. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, and something to keep the whole family entertained, St. Austell is a great year round location.
