    “The cottage is close to the centre of the village but is quiet and you just feel yourself unwinding immediately.”

    The village has lots to explore and the beach reveals an abundance of rock pools and hidden coves.

The property

Resting on the picturesque south coast of Cornwall, on the outskirts of the village of Charlestown, is this alluring Grade II listed cottage, Salty Dog.

Set within striking distance of the famous attraction of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the pretty Readymoney Cove, as well as being close to St Austell train station, this retreat promises to be a refreshing break for a family of all ages and tastes.

Step through the wonderfully kept garden before being welcomed into the boot area, where you can kick off your walking shoes before spending your evenings within the elegantly presented cottage.

Curl up with your loved ones within the sitting room which showcases a woodburning stove and a Smart TV, complete with a superb DVD collection to sift through.

Continuing to impress is the brightly decorated kitchen/diner, where you can gather to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal that was prepared within the amply equipped kitchen area, benefitting from quality appliances and ample space for the designated chef of the group to rustle up dinner.

Follow the carpeted staircase up to the first floor, where you will find a splendid dressing room, where you can store your clothes or prepare for the day in style.

Look forward to drifting off to sleep within one of the bedrooms, comprising a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, each boasting a refreshing colour palette and views of the surrounding countryside.

During the warmer months, spend a moment or two within the front garden area, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink on the patio, whilst your canine companion stretches their legs on the lawn, with the soundtrack of the nearby river adding tranquillity to your stay.

Venture into the centre of Charlestown, where you will be delighted to find a selection of restaurants and bars to sample local food, or wander the winding lanes to enjoy views of the tall ships and visit the filming locations of Poldark, you’ll also be close to local cycling routes.

Further afield, are the superb attractions of Eden Project and the Lost Gardens Heligan, each offering opportunities to explore plants from around the world and endearing wildlife.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding Cornish countryside with this charming base to come back to each evening.
