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 3 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 watersports 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.
