    Lovely cottage well equipped and would go again. Sorry to hear that Cornish Cottage Holidays are no longer a family run company.

The property

Perfectly located for discovering what the south coast of Cornwall has to offer, this stylish bungalow is set in the 13th century old market town of St Austell.

As you enter through the garden gate and into the conservatory, this bright area is a great space for dining, you will then enter the well fitted kitchen and onto the spacious, modern living area beyond; a great room to relax as a family at the end of a fantastic day exploring this fabulous location.

Well-furnished bedrooms await, one with a king size bed and the other a double, they really are sumptuous, with soft bedlinens and pillows to rest your head, there is also a stylish family bathroom.

Nestled behind the owners small B&B, it has a pretty suntrap courtyard garden.

As the property is centrally located in the town, you have all the amenities you can think of on your doorstep including a host of restaurants, bistros, bars and shops, there is something to suit all tastes.

This area is so close to the infamous Eden Project as well as The Lost Gardens of Heligan and coastal towns such as Mevagissey and Charlestown, where some of the Poldark series was filmed.

For those of you who like to be active, you will find watersports a must as well as the old cycle/walking path from the town centre which leads all the way to the Eden Project so no need to drive.

The train station is just a short walk away for those who do not wish to bring a car.

About the location

ST AUSTELL

Pentewan 4 miles ; Charlestown 1.5 miles ; Truro 15 miles

Just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast, St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The landscape around St Austell is rich in kaolin (china clay) and this once made the region extremely prosperous. Today, the china clay industry is in decline and tourism has become the mainstay of income for St Austell and its surrounding parishes. St Austell town centre is home to a range of independent and well-known shops, an undercover shopping centre and a Local Produce Market, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. There is also a range of excellent restaurants, cafes and inns – from traditional country pubs to 2 AA rosette fine dining. Just outside St Austell is the iconic Eden Project, as well as the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, Kidzworld, and the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. There are some beautiful beaches in this area, too – many with good kayaking conditions – and many miles of coastal footpath to explore. The mainly traffic-free Pentewan Cycle Trail runs from St Austell to Pentewan; here you can enjoy a bite to eat at the village pub or beach burger shack before making your return journey to St Austell. One of St Austell’s main events is the Torchlight Carnival which takes place each November – and of course, the World Pasty Championships, which are held at the Eden Project each March!
