    “Everything about the accommodation was excellent, from the warm welcome and helpful advice from the hosts, to the comfort decor and facilities.”

The property

Little Pippin is a chic and contemporary coastal retreat in Carlyon Bay, St Austell.

This stylish semi-detached dwelling next to the owner’s home is set down a private driveway and boasts off-street parking.

The accommodation is set over two floors with a sleep-inducing bedroom for two guests.

On the ground floor is the entrance hallway with storage, smart cloakroom and bright open-plan living room with modern kitchen including breakfast bar and all the appliances, plus comfy seating and patio doors leading out to the attractive garden.

The paved patio and shared lawn with quality rattan garden furniture for alfresco dining is a sunshiny south-facing spot perfect for relaxation.

Little Pippin makes a delightful rendezvous bolthole, stylishly designed for couples looking to enjoy the attractions of Carlyon Bay.

The shoreline beckons for romantic rambles, swims and paddles.

Explore the cliff top path showcasing stunning seascapes.

Charlestown, famed for TV's Poldark, is home to Tall Ships, rustic inns and galleries, gift shops and eateries - a firm favourite!

The charismatic resort of Fowey is seven miles away with popular Regatta Week.

The harbour is pretty; hire a boat and discover the hidden creeks, take a pleasure boat trip or fishing excursion.

The water taxi to Polruan and Mevagissey makes a fun jaunt and the Bodinnick car ferry lands at Looe and Polperro – lunch aside the quay in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Play golf at one of the three local courses.

Visit The Eden Project with remarkable bio-domes of flora and fauna, just a 10-minute drive away.

After a day in the Cornish air, Little Pippin is a superb choice to return to - relax in the garden with a barbecue nibble and glass of fizz.

About the location


Pentewan 4 miles; Charlestown 1.5 miles; Truro 15 miles.

Just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast, St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The landscape around St Austell is rich in kaolin (china clay) and this once made the region extremely prosperous. Today, the china clay industry is in decline and tourism has become the mainstay of income for St Austell and its surrounding parishes. St Austell town centre is home to a range of independent and well-known shops, an undercover shopping centre and a Local Produce Market, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. There is also a range of excellent restaurants, cafes and inns – from traditional country pubs to 2 AA rosette fine dining. Just outside St Austell is the iconic Eden Project, as well as the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey, and the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. There are some beautiful beaches in this area, too – many with good kayaking conditions – and many miles of coastal footpath to explore. The mainly traffic-free Pentewan Cycle Trail runs from St Austell to Pentewan; here you can enjoy a bite to eat at the village pub or beach burger shack before making your return journey to St Austell. One of St Austell’s main events is the Torchlight Carnival which takes place each November – and of course, the World Pasty Championships, which are held at the Eden Project each March!
