  • "The property is very clean and spacious."

    It contains everything you would need at home. Situated in a very cosy and quiet village close to Porthpean beach. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property. The shower would benefit a shelf to put shampoo etc.

  • "2nd year staying there."

    Love the peacefulness and the cottage Everything we needed for a relaxing week. Will be back again. Janet was very welcoming and we were sorry to hear about Reg.

  • "Cosy welcoming peaceful cottage with amazing sea views from back garden, we even saw a cruise ship passing by on Friday evening."

    Beds extremely comfy. Easy safe parking. Owner Janet lives next door & was very friendly lady & helpful with info upon our arrival, she also has the most friendly dog called Mandy who greeted us after our days out, wagging her tail with excitement! The cottage is set in a small village with beach below but car needed as very steep incline for walking back up unless you are 'super fit'. Ideal location for touring, we visited Eden Project, Mevagessey, Looe, Padstow, Newquay, Charlestown to name just a few places.

    Janet is a very nice lady and welcoming .

  • "The quietest holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in, just bird song."

    Beautiful location down narrow road to property. Met by Janet who was so warm and friendly as was her husband Reg and their 4 legged friend. They never encroached on our stay at all even though next door. The property was roomy and comfortable with everything you needed for two. Plus a garden with gorgeous views. Location was good for us to reach places by car(much needed) Par sands, Padstow, Eden Project, even train to St Ives. Please go to local Porthpean beach, a little gem we took car down as too hilly for us. Highly recommended. Thankyou.

The property


Austell 1.5 miles.

This cosy cottage provides comfortable accommodation, and has a delightful sunny garden with views towards the bay.

The cottage is just a few minutes' drive from St. Austell, the Eden Project, and numerous coastal resorts around St. Austell Bay including Carlyon Bay, Par Sands and the quaint harbour village of Charlestown.

About the location


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

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.

Note: This property is suitable for guests aged 18 and over only.
