  • "The cottage itself was lovely, but unfortunately the we all found the beds really uncomfortable."

    The only other problem was the hedge along side the path to the front door could do with cutting back. I personally caught my leg on thorns on two occasions. Also the grass in the back garden needed cutting. The length it was made it difficult picking up after the family dog.

  • "Excellent cottage in a superb location beautifully presented."

    We have been coming to Charlestown for over 10 years and although it is a lot busier now with restaurants & pop up bars it hasn’t lost its original character. Parking can be an issue during the day but you can move your car nearer the cottage later in the evening. Highly recommend.

    Close to harbour. Corner shops were nowhere near though, which seemed a little unusual.

  • "Amazing property."

    Ideally located if you want to stay around Charlestown, Carloyn Bay with lots of different routes to walk. Alternatively if you want to get out and about its a short distance from Porthpean beach (great for paddleboarding), Lost Gardens of Helligan and so much more. Beautifully decorated, the cottage was thoroughly enjoyable to stay in. We loved it and hope to come back!

  • "It was a really lovely property and we have a great time staying there."

    Facilities were excellent and Charlestown, as ever, was a perfect place as a base for our holiday. The cottage was comfortable and really clean and the garden was a useful addition with a 4 year old.

  • "Fantastic cottage - very clean and everything we needed for our break."

    Our group was small, just the 2 of us and our dog and we were perfectly comfortable. The shower room is snug, and the stairs are steep so might not be suitable for those with limited mobility. The cottage is perfectly positioned within easy walking distance of the selection of amenities in Charlestown, and, whilst there is no dedicated parking, we never struggled to park in the on street parking outside the cottage (visited mid-end of Sept). Will return and highly recommend this property.

The property

Located on the main road of the charming village of Charlestown, a stone's through from the picturesque harbour, sandy beach and South West Coast Path, is this immaculate, Grade II listed cottage, 74 Charlestown Road.

This wonderful property is an ideal holiday cottage for a family or couple wanting to explore the south of Cornwall and the surrounding heritage coastline, while also being within easy reach of the renowned Eden Project attractions and the city of Truro.

Step inside the property and find a homely sitting room with open fireplace with a cast iron surround and a sash window with lovely wooden shutters that overlooks the charming front garden, a perfect place for you to curl up on the sofa to watch something on TV.

The kitchen/diner with slate flooring, neutral wooden cupboards, black and silver sparkle quartz worktops and a freestanding cooker, as well as a small dining table, where you can gather to enjoy a home-cooked meal and attractive sash windows overlooking the rear garden.

Upstairs there are three spacious, carpeted bedrooms, all with lovely sash windows and wooden shutters, consisting of two doubles and a single, all served by a family bathroom with a contemporary, tiled suite and a large walk in shower.

Outside there is roadside parking available, as well as a front enclosed lawn with seating and a rear enclosed lawn and patio with furniture and an outbuilding for storage, so you have a choice of picturesque spots to relax in and enjoy your peaceful surroundings.

The centre of Charlestown, with its plethora of shops, cafés and restaurants, is a short walk away, along with its harbour featuring a collection of tall ships, a shipwreck museum and glorious sandy beach.

From the beach, walkers can access the South West Coast Path in either direction; head west towards the Roseland Heritage Coast and discover the Lost Gardens of Heligan, with acres of lush land and a tearoom, sandy beaches at Porthpean and Pentewan, along with the pretty fishing port of Mevagissey, with its model railway, aquarium, harbour and ferry port, offering trips to Fowey, while a journey east will encompass the beaches of Par Sands and St Austell Bay, as well as the National Trust's Lantivet Bay, the cargo port of Fowey along the River Fowey, with its 16th century castle built by Henry VIII, yacht club and harbour, plus the picturesque fishing harbour of Polperro, with its heritage museum and idyllic beach.

St Austell is just over a mile away, with the renowned visitor attraction of Eden Project less than five miles from the cottage, and for a slight change of scenery, Cornwall's cathedral city of Truro is a short drive away.

74 Charlestown Road is a charming base for a coastal retreat on the south coast of Cornwall.
