  • "Great value accommodation, especially for the quality of the bungalow."

    Warm, bright, well decorated and maintained, self-contained, in a quiet residential neighbourhood with off street parking at the property itself. Absolutely ideal for a couple looking for rest or adventure. Welcoming and helpful owners on site. Great place for visiting the whole of Cornwall. Only 20 minutes walk from the railway station or the fascinating Charlestown harbour, and three miles from the Eden Project. Could not recommend it more highly.

    In fact it exceeded our expectations because it provided many extras that you wouldn't expect from a self catering holiday.

    ! Cornwall is great, there are plenty of things to do, it is very close to Eden Project (oh and make sure you go on a warm/hot day, it is less crowded then!). There are museums, coastal little quaint towns and excellent cream teas to be had. St Austell is just a good location to be since it is centrally located, Truro, Bodmin Moors, Penzance are relatively close by. Enjoy while you can, we hope to be back!

Situated all on the ground floor, this delightful cottage has a contemporary sitting room with dining area, a well-equipped kitchen, a beautifully furnished bedroom and a shower room.

Outside there is a lovely patio area complete with barbecue, the perfect place to relax and dine alfresco after a day touring this wonderful area.

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: No children or infants.
