  • "All I can say is WOW!"

    We were greeted by the owner Pat who was extremely welcoming. Everywhere was spotlessly clean with all the home comforts. There was a welcome pack and various toiletries only expected at hotel level. Although Pat and Chris live above the property they keep a low profile so that you don't feel as though you are being watched. All being well we shall book it again in the future. A well deserved 5 stars.

  • "Perfect holiday apartment for a couple, with all mod cons."

    This apartment is ultra comfortable and spotless, very well equipped with its own private patio, welcome pack in the modern kitchen, extremely comfortable bed and sofa and safe parking on site. The owners, who live above, are very welcoming and friendly, and have thought of everything to make guests happy, relaxed and content. The area is quiet and residential but with easy access by car to shops for essentials. The birdsong mornings and evenings is wonderful.

  • "Brunel view is an outstanding property."

    We was greeted by the owner on arrival and a brief tour then we settled in. The place was spotless to say the least. It’s equipped with everything like a home from home and if there was anything we needed the owner was on hand. The bed was divine. The best 7 nights sleep I’ve had in a long time. The bathroom was very large with a great sized shower and hot water in an instant. The kitchen (not that we used it) has everything you need for a weeks stay and all clean and fresh. Lounge area has a lovely big comfy sofa and coffee table with side cabinets huge tv which I could work ( hate technical things) even had a firestick so we could log into our Netflix. Mustn’t forget the sun terrace that was amazing and so quiet it had a table and chairs plus some comfy sun loungers as well. What a sun trap! And lovely to sit in the evening with a G&T and whatch the sun settting. I will be back for sure. I can’t rave about the place enough Well done Pat and Chris.

The bedroom had a really comfy kingsize bed and there was adequate storage for clothes, there was also a flat screen Tv mounted on the wall. The bathroom was spotless and had a really nice shower and came supplied with sumptuous fluffy towels, the whole bathing experience was first class, just what you would want after a hot trip to the beach. Also supplied were various soaps and shampoo's. The kitchen had a full electric cooker, microwave, toaster and kettle. Most welcome was the Nespresso Coffee machine this saved us bringing our own as we often do. The kitchen was well furnished with crocery, cutlery and utensils.

This one bedroom ground floor apartment, Brunel’s View, rests below the owners stunning contemporary home situated overlooking the town of St Austell, just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast and with impressive views to the outside.

The lounge then opens up to a stylish kitchen fitted with new appliances for the holiday season ahead.

At the end of a wonderful day exploring the town, the many local attractions and the surrounding countryside, the double bedroom awaits, a lovely modern arrangement with a figure hugging memory mattress, wall mounted TV and a warm glow from the touch sensitive bedside lamps.

Panoramic views over St Austell & the surrounding countryside create a pleasant backdrop to wake up to each and every morning that goes by.

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
