  • "Fantastic week in Charlestown we all really enjoyed it."

    Location of the smokehouse is excellent and all restaurants are on your doorstep. It was lovely to get up in the morning and look straight out of the window to the tall ships and the harbour an amazing location. It was a great base to explore from. The smokehouse was extremely clean and very comfortable, with the little details that were left by the owners adding to a fantastic stay. The communication from the owner was superb before we arrived which just added to the whole experience. Thank you for a really lovely holiday, we hope to return soon!

Still containing some of its original features and combining contemporary charm, this cottage has been lovingly converted into the perfect family holiday home or couple's retreat, welcoming four guests.

The open-plan living space boasts a wonderful social aspect; with an Atlantic theme throughout the property, in keeping with its delightful harbourside location, this room invites everyone to gather after a day of exploration to relax on the leather sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV.

The well-equipped, sleek kitchen also has charming traditional features and offers every essential for preparing a delicious dinner for the group; why not enjoy fresh seafood brought from the coast?

In the mornings, enjoy a coffee and take one of many books from the shelf before heading to the front lawn with your canine companion by your side to begin your day amongst the fresh breezes of the harbour.

This attractive property is conveniently situated in the midst of Charlestown’s Georgian harbour, a fabulous spot which has served as the setting for TV’s Poldark series and where you can discover The Tall Ships.

You will be spoilt for choice by the selection of fine pubs and restaurants catering for all tastes.

Nearby Carlyon Bay has a fabulous coastline with some lovely walks, sheltered coves and traditional fishing villages (such as Mevagissey) for a wonderful day out.
