About the property

Lovely cottage near the sea with three bedrooms, large living area and garden

Our much-loved three bedroom cottage is right in the heart of Charlestown, with its historic harbour, museum and good local pubs all within just a few minutes walk.

There are three good size bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower and free-standing roll-top bath. The large living room has a wood burner stove but the cottage also has central heating throughout, so it is always cosy. The kitchen is well equipped with a large gas range hob/oven, fridge/freezer and washer/tumble dryer. The cottage has original features throughout and a lovely bright dining conservatory off the kitchen. At the front of the property is a level and very private lawned garden with deckchairs.

The property has several excellent pubs within just a few minutes walk, and a Tesco superstore less than half a mile away. All of the surrounding attractions are easily accessible from the property, from the wonderful Eden Project to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Fowey in one direction and Mevagissey in the other, and all the gorgeous beaches of the south coast. If you're really lucky you might visit while Poldark is being filmed in Charlestown!

All the furniture and carpets are new for 2016 and we provide everything you need - all bedding and towels along with TV and DVD player, music system and DAB radio. Please feel free to message with any questions!

Beautiful 18thC cottage in historic Charlestown
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Beautiful, fully equipped cottage. We loved its proximity to the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days in Charlestown. We were able to park in the road right outside the cottage and it was only a few minutes walk to the harbour. There are lots of lovely shops and pubs to visit and a park right next to the cottage which was great for the kids. The cottage itself was really cosy and homely. We loved the log burner and roll top bath and the children felt quite at home in their bedrooms. We took our dog with us as well and she had a great time on the beach in Charlestown and Carlyon Bay. The only downside was that the Shipwreck Centre was closed until March but I somehow think we may be back!

Lovely, spacious cottage

We had a great time, lots to do within reach. Cottage very clean, fresh and comfortable, and felt much bigger than in the pictures. Would definitely return.

Very nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice holiday here. The rooms are nicely appointed and have modern furniture. But the best is the dining table. It is in a small winter garden directly at the kitchen. The place is completely glazed and therefore very bright, even if it rains. Here we played always in the evening.

We felt very comfortable.

Charlestown is a good starting point for all the attractions in Cornwall.

The communication with the landlady is very nice and easy.
