Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall, in particular the beautiful South coast and the unmissable tourist attractions of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, this charming terraced cottage is situated in the centre of the old market town of St Austell, just a short walk from the town centre.
The owners, one of which is an artist, have furnished the cottage with both character and style, with a multi-coloured bright living room and a kitchen/diner on the ground floor.
On the first floor, the master room features a antique bed brought back from France, with a small double room and a twin completing the accommodation.
At the rear of the cottage is a small courtyard and garden with seating to relax after a day out exploring all Cornwall has to offer.
Just down from the cottage and a very short stroll is St Austell's town centre, offering a multi-screen cinema, ten pin bowling and a host of bars, restaurants and takeaways offering something for everyone.
When it comes to a day out, you really are spoilt for choice.
Apart from the nearby tourist attractions, the old character village and working port of Charlestown and fishing village of Mevagissey are both a short drive away and well worth a visit, along with many other small coves and beaches.
A character cottage in an ideal touring location to be enjoyed all-year-round.
Three bedrooms: 2 x double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with shower, WC and basin. Sitting room with gas fire. Kitchen with dining area.
About the location
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, Mevagissey, 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!
