The property

Resting in the bustling coastal village of Charlestown on the picturesque south coast of Cornwall is this enchanting, semi-detached home, Crab Cottage.

Perfect for a family getaway, this homely base is set within a mile of a beach and a range of amenities, while a little further afield lies the ever-popular Eden Project, making this a superb touring base.

Well-furnished throughout, step inside and relish in an evening of relaxation within the sitting room, offering ample seating with two sofas and an armchair, while your entertainment is provided via the Smart TV with sound bar, an excellent combination for movie nights!

Continuing to impress is the brightly decorated kitchen/diner, where you can gather to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal prepared within the amply equipped kitchen area, benefitting from quality appliances and ample space for the designated chef of the group to rustle up dinner.

Look forward to drifting off to sleep within one of the bedrooms; take your pick from a family room with double and single bed, while across the hall rests a double with sea views, each boasting a refreshing colour palette and plenty of storage space.

In the mornings, make use of the coffee maker provided and take a book outside to the front garden which captures the morning sun, then in the afternoon migrate to the rear garden and bask in the sunshine with your canine companion by your side to end your day amongst the fresh Cornish air.

A gentle stroll will bring you to Charlestown’s Georgian harbour, a famous spot which has served as the setting for TV’s Poldark series and where you can discover The Tall Ships, or head into the village and sample local food from a selection of quality restaurants and bars.

Just around the corner from the harbour lies the small Charlestown Beach 0.3 miles from the property, with the much larger Carlyon Beach 0.8 miles away.

Nearby Carlyon Bay offers a glorious coastline with some superb walks, sheltered coves and traditional fishing villages, such as Mevagissey, perfect for a day out.

While here, don’t miss out on a visit to the fantastic attractions of Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, each offering opportunities to explore plants from around the world and endearing wildlife.

With so much to fill your holiday itinerary, a stay at Crab Cottage promises to be a memorable one.
