Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just spent a wonderful week at the Harbourside cottage. The cottage is extremely well equipped and we wanted for nothing. It was very clean, with plenty of space for 5 people. The location is perfect, in the picturesque, historical village of Charlestown. Sitting at the picture windows at the front of the house and watching village life go by was a highlight. We were very lucky as the tall ships were docked during our stay. Instructions prior to our stay were comprehensive and we greatly appreciated the welcome basket of goodies. I can highly recommend a stay at Harbourside.
