The property

St Austell 1.4 miles.

Nestled in the port village of Charlestown, a stone's throw away from the town of St Austell, rests this delightful reverse-level holiday cottage, Pirata.

Within easy reach of the stunning Cornish coastline, as well as a number of popular towns, sights and attractions, Pirata is an idyllic base for a small family looking to explore the delights of Cornwall.

A sought-after off-road parking space greets you upon arrival to the property, leading you through a well-maintained front garden up to the doorway of this delightful stone-built cottage, where you can kick off your walking boots before continuing over the threshold and into the holiday home.

The ground floor of the property boasts a quirky living arrangement, housing two beautifully appointed bedrooms, a double and a twin room, both featuring traditional wooden furnishings and a neutral décor, offering a calming place to rest your head after a day full of adventure.

The bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom, fit with a bath with an overhead shower, allowing you to choose between escaping into the pages of a good book as you indulge in a leisurely soak in the bath, or rinsing your sandy toes in the shower.

Climb the stairs to the main area of the house, stepping into the open-plan living space where you'll be welcomed by a light and airy décor, beautifully laid out with exposed wood flooring and designed with a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings, offering a homely atmosphere and a sociable space to enjoy with your group.

The designated chef will be delighted by the stylish kitchen, fit with all of the amenities necessary to prepare a hearty meal, and even boasting a handy dishwasher so there's no time wasted on doing the washing up, and more time spent gathered around the dining table, enjoying quality time together and indulging in some tasty treats as you plan your next adventure.

After a busy day, settle in for the evening with a seat on the plush snuggle chair, sharing a bowl of popcorn with the little ones as you enjoy a family movie night, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, travel back downstairs, heading out to the patio where you can enjoy a refreshing glass of wine as the sun sets in the evening, soaking in the fresh sea air and relishing in the peaceful setting whilst your four legged friends stretch their legs.

Pack up the essentials and head out of the door to spend a fun-filled day at Charlestown Beach, a south-facing shingle beach where you can enjoy a revitalizing dip in the scenic water of St Austell bay, soaking in the sunlight until the early evening.

After working up an appetite, stroll into the town center to indulge in a bite to eat at one of the town's many eateries, serving up delicious locally sourced produce, and be sure to end the day in style with a visit to The Boathouse for a refreshing pint of real ale overlooking the stunning harbour.

Jump in the car and head further inland to the nearby town of St Austell, home to a bustling high street lined with a vast selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as an array of attractions, providing the perfect destination for an exciting day out for all of the family.

Test your swing at Saint Austell Golf Club or take a guided tour around the museum at St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre, discovering the history of a Victorian brewery, dating back 150 years.

Nestled on the outskirts of the town is Cornwall's most famous attraction, The Eden Project, an environmental research and education center set deep within a crater, housing the largest rainforest in captivity, boasting eye-catching plants and gardens as well as playing venue to exhibitions, concerts and family-friendly events.

Within easy reach are the popular Cornish towns of Mevagissey, Looe and Polperro.

However you plan to discover the delights of this stunning part of the country, choose Pirata as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
