  • "We felt there was too much evidence of previous occupancy, ie discarded chewed bubble gum on the lounge floor, soiled underwear left in drawers and lack of cleaning in a few areas."

  • "Thank you for our fantastic holiday."

    We had a lovely time in the very hot temperatures! Everything that we needed and a nice central location for exploring some beautiful places. We were grateful for all the useful info provided by the owners on places to visit.

  • "Nice cottage next to several beaches and gardens."

    The parking at the coop is very close to the cottage with many space... Greater cookingpots for a family of 4 persons will be great ... Befor booking the cottage, we had no information about the case, that Middleway is a road often used by coaches, lorrys and loud motorcycles. Both sleepingsrooms are to the roadside. The early bird (6 am) catches ...

  • "The cottage has a strong smell of damp which is over powering."

    The kitchen wasn’t very clean - cupboard doors were dirty and sticky. The drain smell when the dishwasher was on was awful. The hard floor on the ground floor was really dirty. You could tell it had been mopped as there were mopping marks but the floor was still dirty. The front of the cottage is dirty (flooring, paint work, meter cupboard) so the general appearance isn’t great. The garden is also unkept - over grown & messy. The deck, chairs and table were filthy. All in all I felt really let down and it’s certainly not good value for the money. On the positive side it was a really good location for the Eden project and the bathroom was clean (apart from the extractor which is filthy). A lot of the above is so easy to fix with better housekeeping and more attention to detail. A welcome pack would be appreciated as well as some general instructions about locating switches for things (the oven for example) and instructions about bins. A few tips - the house needs to be aired and it needs a dehumidifier. Less Knick knacks - they’re not needed - you need empty surfaces to put your own stuff when staying at a holiday cottage. Sort out the crockery, cutlery etc in the kitchen - it’s such a mix of random things. Provide a airer for drying beach towels etc - a heated airer would be even better to counteract the general dampness of the cottage.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in the beautifully decorated Nasturtium cottage - a high attention to detail makes you feel straight at home."

    Great amenities with high-tech heating, WIFI (login details in the little book), dishwasher and TV with netflix included. The perfect base to explore the south Cornwall coast. Perfectly positioned with a large Co-op one minute walk away and a huge beach at Par Sands 5-6 minute drive away for walking the dog. Would highly recommend.

  • "For just two adults and a small dog this was a cosy place with a nice lounge."

    Convenient for the coastal villages and beaches. The shower cubicle is quite small but we’re slim so wasn’t a problem! Parking out of season was fine but not sure if harder to find street parking close by in summer. Close to Co-Op and complimentary therapy centre. Stairs are steep and the bunk room really needs an electric heater out of season - but we didn’t need to use the room. Appreciate difficult to accommodate a washing machine. Families staying perhaps might prefer that to a dish washer? All appliances good. It suited us fine. Suzanne the owner was very nice and helpful

  • "High standard of cleanliness."

    Decorated and finished to a high standard, owners have thought of everything. Good equipped kitchen if you want to self cater. Lovely little garden area with raised decking. Very close to large Co-op store (1 min walk) and good location for beach trips, Eden project and a number of port towns with good restaurants (which get very booked up so best to book well in advance). Would recommend and would visit again.

This characterful cottage rests amidst the bustling town of St Blazey and is a short distance away from the dramatic Cornish coast and the famous Eden Project.

With its superb location and containing everything you could possibly need for a great self-catering experience, Nasturtium Cottage is perfect for a family in pursuit of an action-packed break.

Head into the inviting sitting room, where exposed beams frame the contemporary sofa and the TV with Netflix, providing you with some relaxing entertainment during a rainy day or evening.

From here, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, certain to encourage the chef of the group to whip up family favourite dishes, which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

Upstairs, you will find two immaculately finished bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a child bunk bedroom, creating the ideal set up for families with young children.

The sleek shower room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC concludes the interior of this charming dwelling.

Immerse yourself in your surroundings further by exploring the town of St Blazey, home to a number of shops and places to eat and drink, as well as providing access to the small village of Par, where a glorious beach awaits you on a summer’s afternoon.

This beach is dog-friendly too, so your canine companion can also look forward to enjoying this stunning part of the Cornish coast.

Keen walkers can look forward to exploring the famous South West Coastal Path, giving you opportunities to discover more glistening sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages and hidden coves along the way.

Impressively, this property rests just a short distance away from the ever-popular Eden Project, a botanical garden with a collection of plants from many diverse climates and environments.

Slightly further afield is the enchanting Lost Gardens of Heligan and the pretty coastal village of Charlestown, famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the ancient harbour.

Other places worth visiting includes the small town of Fowey, which rests at the mouth of the Fowey River and Mevagissey, a quaint fishing port resting five miles south of St Austell.

With so much to see and do, a stay at Nasturtium Cottage promises to be a fun-filled break for all.

About the location


Eden Project 1 mile; Charlestown 3 miles; St Austell 3 miles.

St Blazey is a small town situated three miles east of St Austell and was formerly an important engineering centre for the local mining and railway industries. The town is nowadays best known for being the closest to the Eden Project. Nearby Charlestown is a delightful and much sought after coastal village of stone cottages and regency houses. It is 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. 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, (including dog-friendly Par Sands) and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, with plenty to see and do. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, this is a great year round location.
