About the property

Cottage in Charlestown, St Austell, Cornwall, England - Charlestown Is The Home Port Of Square Sail Tall Ships Used In Film Pro

Just 200 metres from the beach, beautiful coastal walks and minutes from a variety of restaurants and pubs, this pretty fisherman's cottage is set in a quiet corner of Charlestown, within an English rose garden at the front, whilst at the back there is a small Mediterranean-style, secluded courtyard, with white-washed stone walls, hidden candle light and tubbed palms.

Sunnyside is a warm and welcoming cottage which has been refurbished to give a light and homely feeling retaining many of its traditional features. The large well equipped galley kitchen is beamed and has plenty of work surfaces.

Although the shower room and toilet is quaint and bijou, it accommodates a full sized shower. Both of the bedrooms have window seats and ample room for clothes storage.

Charlestown’s harbour, which is flanked by beaches, can be viewed from the double bedroom. There are sections of Cornwall coastal path to enjoy within easy access!

Very NIce.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from our stay at Sunnyside Cottage, this is a charming cottage in a lovely location.

Charlestown is the ideal centre for using it as a base for exploring.

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side this year, so we spent more time in the cottage than planned, but it really is a delightful little cottage so that was no great hardship. Clean, Tidy, Well equipped and oh so cosy. Amanda & Dave are very friendly and made us very welcome. We hope to return to this little gem in the very near future.

Thanks for a delightful stay

Lovely quite cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed in Charlestown. We was pleasantly surprised by how peaceful and quite the place was. There are several walks that you can take if you choose too. Charlestown is a very good base to travel out from most places just one hour away. We enjoyed staying at sunnyside cottage very relaxing beds very comfortable. Cottage very clean and kitchen well equipped and hopefully we will be going back very soon. Thank you Amanda for our lovely stay at your sunnyside cottage

Nice location, reasonable price

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay but will not be returning. Make sure you spend your final night cleaning from top to bottom or forfeit the security deposit. There aren't any facilities for recycling, we had to take ours the the local tip 3 miles away. The rooms are of adequate size and decently furnished/decorated. Although reasonably presented on arrival, there were many areas that could use a deep clean; i.e. The drains clogged with hair from previous guests and black slime/mound in the shower.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. However, I was surprised to read your comments, this was the first negative review I have ever received. I'm sorry to hear that you had a couple of issues during your stay at Sunnyside, It is a shame you didn't tell us about the problems on arrival; we were only next door or we could have been contacted by email, then we could have addressed the problems you were experiencing. You mentioned about 'previous guests', my husband and I were the last people to stay there and we are very confident that the cottage was left clean. In all the years we have been letting Sunnyside, I have never had cause to cash a security cheque, this was the first time. Yours sincerely Amanda

Enchanting vacations

  • 5 of 5

The pretty, cosy and very clean cottage gave us a perfect stay in Cornwall. The cottage is perfect for 2 persons because it is big anough for a stay and not too big to feel comfortable and homelike. The kitchen was also well equipped and very tidy. We enjoyed our 5 days there very much.

A Little Gem of a Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a little Gem of a cottage within walking distance to many fine restaurants and pubs, the Rashleigh Arms was our favourite. An early evening stroll to the harbour watching the young and old swim, fish and enjoy themselves is a must. The cottage has everything you need and with the owners living next door it helped when we needed advice. The only thing missing was more sunshine. We visited Eden Project, Bodmin Jail, Padstow, Truro and Fowey ( on the Ferry from Mevagissy, which was very enjoyable although a bit choppy on the way back ). Nothing is too far away. Would visit the area again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it is greatly appreciated. It's always good to hear how you spent your holiday. Thank you for the tip about the ferry and I'm glad you found the bus service from Charlestown handy. Yes, there are an excellent range of restaurants, cafes and bars in the village. We hope to welcome you to Sunnyside again in the near future.
