Stylish three-storey property in the village of Charlestown with its pretty Georgian harbour and winding streets.

This contemporary, property is located at the heart of the village of Charlestown, famous for its Georgian port and more recently as the location for the TV series Poldark. The village is a fine example of a Georgian harbour with the South West coastal path passing through, and maintains a small fleet of tall ships, as well as an interesting shipwreck museum. The location could not be better for exploring this area of south Cornwall, as the town of St Austell with its shops and supermarkets is just a ten-minute drive away, as is The Eden Project. For those wishing to explore the coast, the attractive seaside towns of Fowey and Mevagissey are both within a 30-minute drive. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are another attraction close by to the property or why not take a trip to the National Trust property of Lanhydrcok which has rental bikes and good cycle trails; only 20 minutes away.

As soon as you enter this three-storey property, you will feel immediately relaxed. The ground floor is home to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is perfect for enjoying some family time, either relaxing in front of the smart TV in the lounge area or enjoying a meal together at the large, extendable dining table. The sleek kitchen has everything you will need to enjoy your stay including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. To the first floor, guests will find two of the four bedrooms, both of which have double beds, each with its own en-suite shower room. One of these rooms also benefits from its own TV. The further two bedrooms are located on the second floor and comprise of zip-and-link super-king-size beds which can be made up as twins should you so wish. (Please request this at time of booking). These rooms are also both en-suite, each with its own shower and WC and one with TV. An additional cloakroom with WC can be found on the ground floor.

Really nice property, honest description from Holiday Cottages, everything was 'as described' close to a number of pubs and restaurants which are open in November and are in easy walking distance. The property is in a very quiet area of Charlestown, public transport to St Austell and Truro only a 5 minute walk. Property is well appointed throughoutRead more, dining area was a little cramped, lounge was comfortable and relaxing. Hide
