  • "This is our 4th visit to Cornwall using this property."

    I only have good things to say about Chewidden, it is beautifully kept and very comfortable. On arrival you will find scones jam and cream in the fridge which is a lovely touch. We had a brilliant stay and hope to return very soon.

  • "We've stayed at Chewidden before and enjoyed our stay just as much this time."

    It is ideally positioned to walk in Charlestown and also to visit around a very nice part of Cornwall by car. There's much to see & do. We'll be back. Stephen

  • "This was one of the most comfortable cottages we’ve stayed in and a great location."

    Beautifully appointed, all the facilities were of a high quality and easy to use. Gorgeous hot shower in the wet room and the most comfortable bed ever. It’s not easy to find such a home from home feeling in a holiday rental. Will definitely stay here again

  • "The property is ideally placed and equipped to enable a very enjoyable holiday experience for any couple."

    The house’s location enables easy access to many of Cornwall’s ancient and quaint fishing villages, old clay and tin workings and such interesting places as the Eden Project and Tate Modern in St Ives. The house is a pleasure to holiday in, being comfortably furnished and carefully designed.

    Great facilities in kitchen. Fabulous location in Charlestown. What a find….first class!!

  • "Very nice place."

    Had everything we needed. Great location. A little bit tight getting into the car park if you have a big car, but recognise there’s nothing that can be done about that and it’s not impossible if you’re careful. Just one possible improvement - my wife would have liked a full length mirror somewhere (maybe on the back of the upstairs cupboard door?).

  • "Really comfy and cosy cottage."

    Beautiful and tastefully decorated and everything had been carefully thought about. Appreciated the boxes of cereal, milk and cream tea ..yum! We laughed every time we bumped our heads upstairs. Suspect it was our lack of space awareness on our part! Can’t wait to return back to Charlestown and would definitely use this accommodation again.

  • "We stayed here at the end of April and really enjoyed the cottage and Charlestown."

    There is so much to do in the local area and so many beautiful places to experience/visit. The cottage instructions were very clear and the owner/s have thought of everything to make it home from home with high spec equipment and utentils. It was very nice to have a holiday cottage with things like soap, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc left to use. Also a welcome basket with bread, butter, milk, cereal and jams etc. There is no shop in Charlestown so this was appreciated. There is plenty of information in the cottage on things to visit locally and books/maps. The only area that was initially tricky was getting use to the electronic entry gate to the car park as quite neat to turn into Merchant's Quarter and park. We got use to it but might be worth mentioning in the information. The property does not have an outdoor area other than the car park but there is plenty of places locally. Overall a great holiday in Cornwall and holiday home which is ideal for two people.

    Thank you very much for your positive comments. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Right on the doorstep of Charlestown’s bars, restaurants, quayside and beach. The cottage has excellent facilities and is decorated, tastefully.

We would definitely recommend it and intend to book again.

    Welcome pack was brilliant, milk jam, butter etc., Entrance to parking area was challenging for a larger car. Everything you could wish for with the facilities provided home from home. The upstairs ceilings were to say the least a challenge, not good for a tall person and no mention of the open backed staircase which we found difficult. Overall a really good holiday. instructions for the heating would be helpful. It got too hot on occasions and we couldn’t figure out to alter. All other information was excellent. Thank you. We would recommend to more able body persons

  • "The description doesn’t really portray the how low the ceiling is upstairs."

    Very little area you can walk around upright. My wife is 5ft 4” and hit her head several times, and I am 6ft! A little more honesty in the advertising please. No recycling, just a rubbish bin. I appreciate it’s difficult, but there is room in the bin area to do something. We took our recycling home.

    Dear David, I’m really sorry that you struggled with the low ceiling. Chewidden is a conversion of a very old building. Regarding waste, I pay for all waste to be collected privately by CTC who have a zero landfill policy. They operate a service specifically for holiday lets where all waste is sorted and recycled or reused. Nothing goes to landfill. Recycling information is in the visitor information pack in the property. Once again, I am really sorry that you weren’t completely satisfied. It is always disappointing to hear. Reviews are really important and I would be really grateful if you would reconsider your score now that your recycling query has been answered. With best wishes. Property Owner

The property

This luxurious detached character cottage is set in the small select Merchants Quarter development in the heart of the historic harbour port and village of Charlestown, Cornwall.

The cottage has high quality fixtures and fittings throughout and is ideally located for a romantic break, visiting the many leading attractions in south Cornwall. The cottage is set beside the road leading to the harbour and benefits from views down the road towards the harbour and sea beyond.

Guests can enjoy a pleasurable short stroll to take in all the delights this village has to offer. Enter the cottage and be welcomed into the delightful open-plan living area.

There is a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting area, most relaxing after a day spent on the beach or visiting the Eden Project or the Lost Gardens of Heligan, two of the finest attractions in Cornwall, both only a short drive away.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the first-floor to find a beautiful cottage bedroom with sloping ceilings and beams, and a balcony overlooking the living room.

The bedroom also benefits from a well-appointed en-suite, complete with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Famous as being a popular location for film and television sets especially Poldark, Charlestown remains unspoilt and retains much of its Georgian character often harbouring magnificent square riggers ships transporting you into a bygone age.

Fine restaurants, pubs and cafes a short stroll away offer a selection of meals to suit all.

A choice of superb golf courses and spas are all available close by and add to a relaxing holiday.

A beautifully presented cottage in a wonderful village to be enjoyed and appreciated all year round.
