The property

This cosy stone cottage conveniently sits in the centre of St Blazey, just one mile from the southern Cornwall coast.

Just 1 mile from the Eden Project and 3 miles from St Austell and Charlestown, this is the perfect retreat for your Cornwall-based break.

Upon entering this wonderful cottage, step into a delightful dining room where many a delicious meal can be enjoyed with the group together.

Next you will find the charming kitchen, well-equipped and featuring a stunning stone feature fireplace.

The welcoming sitting room is also dominated by a stone fireplace, which hosts a fabulous electric woodburner, accompanying the TV to ensure a snug night in.

The two immaculately finished bedrooms rest up on the first floor; a double and a room with a bunk bed is the perfect arrangement for families with young children.

The accommodation concludes in style with a modern tiled shower room boasting a walk-in shower.

To appreciate your terrifically rural location, take a seat on the rear patio with a relaxing drink of choice.

From the cottage you can easily walk to your nearest amenities in St Blazey.

From here there is much you can easily access, including the ever-popular Eden Project just one mile away.

There is a day trip available for all tastes, with the magical market town of St Austell, the South West Coastal Path and the glistening sands at Par all close at hand for you to make the most of.

A splendid cottage which is the perfect base for a Cornish getaway.

About the location


Eden Project 1 mile; Charlestown 3 miles; St Austell 3 miles.

St Blazey is a small town situated three miles east of St Austell and was formerly an important engineering centre for the local mining and railway industries. The town is nowadays best known for being the closest to the Eden Project. Nearby Charlestown is a delightful and much sought after coastal village of stone cottages and regency houses. It is famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path. The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches, (including dog-friendly Par Sands) and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, with plenty to see and do. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, this is a great year round location.
