  • “The cottage is lovely, cosy, modern and very smart.”

    The kitchen is spacious and practical. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom very nice with a good shower. We kept banging our heads on the sloping roof in the bedroom and one has to be careful not to collide with the wooden stairs which protrude into the lounge area. ...

    The kitchen is spacious and practical. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom very nice with a good shower. We kept banging our heads on the sloping roof in the bedroom and one has to be careful not to collide with the wooden stairs which protrude into the lounge area. The large TV is very nice bit we would have liked also to have a CD player as we prefer to listen to music some of the time. I didn’t succeed in streaming music from my laptop to the Roberts Smart Speaker – no idea what stopped it. The Internet works well and is reasonably fast. Charlestown is a very pleasant and interesting village with a good choice of places to eat, though they are all rather expensive. We had excellent meals at the Rashleigh Arms and the Pier House Hotel. There are 3 supermarkets within easy walking distance: Tesco and Lidl at 7 and 8 minutes respectively (via Church Road) and Aldi at 18 minutes. The coast path makes for a pleasant walk in both directions and nearby Carlyon Bay has a wonderful sandy beach. The weather was rather poor such that we were confined to the cottage for 2½ days due to heavy rain and high wind. Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay and can recommend this property.

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 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.
