Pebbledrift Cottage - A Beautiful, Granite Fronted, Self Catering Cottage

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Cottage in Charlestown, Nr. St Austell, Cornwall, England - Quiet Location Easy Access To Local Shops, Pubs, Restaurants & Other Local Amenities

Our beautiful, granite fronted, self catering cottage has been designed to blend with the charming surroundings of the historic port of Charlestown. The cottage is one of a small group of seven cottages based around a central courtyard. It is 100 yards from Charlestown harbour and Charlestown's two beaches which are recommended by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) for their excellent water quality and has European designated bathing water. Externally, Pebbledrift Cottage has the appearance of a traditional stone cottage with a small south facing gravelled and paved private court yard garden. Internally, the living accommodation is modern and contemporary with bedrooms and bath room located downstairs and open plan living accommodation on the first floor. The open plan first floor is divided into three distinct areas - a lounge area with two sofas, coffee table sideboard and TV, the dining area has a solid wood table and there is a very well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. The kitchen is well stocked with all crockery, cutlery and utensils we think you will need. Equipment includes a fan oven with electric hob, fridge, freezer, wine fridge, toaster, microwave oven, Wifi & Broadband, Satellite TV (FREESAT), DVD player, IPod dock with MP3 aux connection, dishwasher, washing machine, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, gas central heating and combi boiler for instant hot water. Bed linen and bath/hand towels are provided for use within Pebbledrift Cottage. Please bring your own beach towels. On the ground floor there is a sunny, enclosed, private courtyard garden with table and four chairs plus two folding sun loungers. There is one marked off road private parking place available for Guest use - additional parking is also easy to find on the street or in a public car park approximately 100 yards from Pebbledrift Cottage. There will be no need to get the car out to find somewhere good to eat or drink, daytime or evening, as within easy walking distance of the cottage there are two pubs and a bar which serve food and excellent local ales, as well as a restaurant which specialises in locally caught fish, a bistro/bar and a cafe which serves breakfasts, light meals and cream teas. You can also buy delicious pasties and locally made ice creams at a nearby kiosk. There are craft shops, a gift shop and a gallery too. There is also a fascinating Shipwreck and Heritage Centre as well as the popular annual Charlestown Regatta. Charlestown is in an excellent position to explore the whole of the beautiful county of Cornwall. The coastal path walk can be picked up near the harbour. Golfers are very well catered for too - Carlyon Bay golf course, Porthpean golf course and St Austell golf course are all just minutes away. There is a sailing club at Porthpean, the next village along and, of course there is no shortage of beautiful beaches all within a short driving distance. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short drive away, as are the towns of Mevagissey and Fowey. Bodmin Gaol and the Bodmin & Wenford Railway are also worth a visit. There are also several private and NT stately homes and gardens in the vicinity which are well worth a visit. St Austell town is just a couple of minutes by car, has all local town amenities, including two 24 hour supermarkets. St Austell is also on the main line railway and the station is only approximately 1.75 miles away with easy connections to Plymouth, Bodmin, Truro, Penzance, St Ives and beyond. There is also a south facing, private courtyard garden. Off road parking.

“A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a delightful location.”



The cottage is very well equipped and maintained. We had a very enjoyable short break and would certainly consider staying there again. Charlestown Harbour is delightful for local walks. We also enjoyed visits to the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Clean, well equipped, renovated cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is one of 8, all renovated that face into a courtyard. It was very clean and well equipped and provided comfortable accommodation for my wife, two sons and I. It was a last minute booking so we had a mind set of "we'll take what we get", however we need not have had any fears as we were very pleasantly surprised from the moment we pulled off the public highway and into the private parking that accompanies the cottage. Additionally upon exploring the property we were very pleasantly surprised to find scones, clotted cream and jam had been left in the fridge for us - nice touch! Charlestown itself is a picturesque town with many interesting features, plus a number of places to eat, all with in easy walking distance, so no drink driving considerations on your holiday. In addition to spending time there, we used it as a base to explore Cornwall more extensively with ease. A very nice offering that we would recommend to friends.

Location

From the Owner

We love Charlestown due to it's historic setting complete with Tall Ships and original harbour & buildings, yet with a vibrant and pleasant atmosphere combining old and new. There are fine beaches within easy walking distance and plenty of local pub, bars and restaurants catering for most tastes within Charlestown itself. You don't need to get the car out for an evening out! Regatta Week (usually in July) is a special celebration with a range of traditional and modern nautically themed activities throughout the week.
