It was lovely. Amazing to have a sea view, and to be able to walk to the beaches and eateries. The cottage was very tastefully presented, and its aforementioned location seemed to attract envious glances from passers by!

The best thing about this cottage is the location. Moments away from the harbour with its small collection of pubs and cafes. The cottage is warm and comfortable, with lots of cooking equipment and a nice kitchen. The master bedroom has a wonderful view, which is a pleasure to wake up to each morning.

What a brilliant find....even ticked all of Bernie's (the dog) boxes.......the cottage was perfect, much larger than anticipated....and the morning sunlight through the windows was idyllic. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking as the kitchen was fully equipped for doing so. The beds were very comfortable and the sea air made sure we had a restful night.

A beautiful cottage right in the heart of Charlestown. Superb facilities and great if you have a dog as the garden is enclosed. Very cosy with under floor heating and the cottage is well equipped we really couldnt fault it. Main bedroom is very large.

Comfortable and well appointed for an up to 4-person stay. Location is quiet in the evenings and with easy access to the main road is a great base for travelling to other villages on the coast.
