    Please book this cottage if you want perfection.Its perfect for a couple to stay in,clean,comfortable and classy. We own a home Interiors business and noted that all the furniture and accessories are of excellent quality and the owners have decorated each room superbly. The cottage is a 20 minute walk into Charlestown,which is the most beautiful harbour and blue sea you could want. The owners are very attentive but discreet,living next door.We could not find fault with anything in our week's stay there.

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.

About the location


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

The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, and families, with plenty to see and do. Get back to nature with the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the ever-popular Eden Project, perfect for a family day out, or discover the delights of Caerhays Castle and Garden, flourishing in the maritime climate. Home to the St. Austell Brewery, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while sampling the delights of the local beer, after a tour of the Victorian brewery, and for those who love the surf and sand, St. Austell has plenty of both to choose from. Visit the beautiful sandy beach at Porthpean, or spend time at Carlyon Bay with its ever-popular shingle beach, a favourite for sun worshippers, but if you prefer a dip in the water, Polkerris is the place for you. Situated in a safe cove, it is renowned for variety of watersports. Whether it’s sailing, windsurfing or swimming you're looking for, Polkerris Beach has it all. Charlestown is a pretty, historical port just two miles away, famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, and is well worthy of a visit whilst staying in St. Austell. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, and something to keep the whole family entertained, St. Austell is a great year round location.
