The property

An ideal base from which to tour the south coast of Cornwall, this cosy contemporary house is set in a quiet area in the heart of the world-famous Georgian village and working port of Charlestown, a mile from St Austell and close to the Eden Project.

Driving down to the village you turn off to this quiet location where the house is situated, hidden away yet only a few minutes walk to the harbour.

Parking outside, you enter the house into the hallway leading through to the sitting room before going through to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area.

From here you can access the decked courtyard and then take the stairway up the old foundry wall to the upper lawned garden where you can relax after a day touring the coast.

On the first floor are the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, along with the bathroom.

To this day Charlestown remains unspoilt and retains much of its Georgian character and this unique combination has led to the village being much in demand as a film and television location.

Fans of Poldark will instantly recognise the proud harbour where you regularly see magnificent square rigger ships transporting you into a bygone era.

Well worth a visit is the Shipwreck, Rescue and Heritage Centre located in the village and containing many exhibits relating to Charlestown's past and of course some interesting shipwreck salvage.

For a small village there are three excellent pubs serving good food and local ales as well as restaurants and cafés.

Less than a mile away is Cornwall's largest town, St Austell, with a cinema and a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs.

St Austell Bay, with its many sandy beaches is a haven for water sports and walkers will have the choice of the stunning South West Coast Path or the many woodlands and trails.

With so much to do whatever the weather, this really is an excellent holiday destination.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

    “The Mackeral is a lovely small house in a great location.”

    The house was clean, tidy and comfortable. The garden is up a flight of metal steps and is level with the first floor, there is a small yard outside the back door. The kitchen has everything that you would need. The heating cannot be turned on when required, it is set to come on twice per day. I messaged the property owner who happily set a third heating period. This isn’t great for a wet cold week in Cornwall, thankfully there is a gas fire in the lounge that we used to warm the house.

    The house was clean, tidy and comfortable. The garden is up a flight of metal steps and is level with the first floor, there is a small yard outside the back door. The kitchen has everything that you would need. The heating cannot be turned on when required, it is set to come on twice per day. I messaged the property owner who happily set a third heating period. This isn’t great for a wet cold week in Cornwall, thankfully there is a gas fire in the lounge that we used to warm the house. The shower over the bath doesn’t have a thermostatic mixer so if somebody else uses a cold tap or flushes a toilet the shower temperature increases to very hot. Apart from these minor issues the house is great and has everything you would require for a comfortable stay. The cream tea was a very nice welcoming treat.

About the location

CHARLESTOWN

St. Austell 1.5 miles; Eden Project 2 miles; Truro 16 miles.

A delightful and much sought-after coastal village of stone cottages and Regency houses, on the south coast near St. Austell. Famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path, it’s the perfect holiday destination. It has even been used as a filming location, most well known for appearing in Poldark. The area is rich in golf courses with Carlyon Bay and Porthpean close by. The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey is 20 minutes' drive away by car, while the Lost Gardens of Heligan, several stately homes and gardens and the fabulous Eden Project are all within 5 miles, with Newquay and North Cornwall coast only a 35 minute drive away by car.
