A traditional cottage situated at the heart of Charlestown, a harbour village with an industrial past. This property is ideal for exploring both Charlestown and St Austell.

This cosy and traditional cottage is located in the heart of the harbour village of Charlestown. Charlestown was built between 1790 and 1810 to help build up the industry of exporting copper and clay, so it is rich in industrial history. The famous tall ships can be seen here, while the village has also appeared in several films and TV programmes. St Austell, the largest town in Cornwall, is just a few miles away, with a larger selection of shops, restaurants and cafes. The cottage is also the perfect base for exploring Cornwall, with attractions such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan just a short drive away.

This property retains many of its original features, which include exposed beams and wooden floors. On the ground floor is the lounge, kitchen and dining area, which is all open plan, opening up the space on this level. The cosy lounge area features a Smart TV with Netflix and Catch Up and a wood burner effect electric fire, while the kitchen features a single oven with integrated dishwasher, fridge with freezer box and a washer/dryer. Up on the first floor, accessed by a steep, open-tread staircase, is the double bedroom, with further character added by the sloping ceiling. The bedroom also has an en-suite shower room with a WC. Bed linen, towels, Wi-Fi, electric and electric heating are all included with this property, as well as a welcome pack to help you settle in.

Lovely, quaint cottage. Location is perfect - pub over the road, 2 minute walk to the harbour, 15 min walk to Duporth beach which is dog friendly. (Charlestown beach doesn't allow dogs during summer). The cottage is well equipped and compact, and the robes are a nice touch, but it is very small, so just be prepared!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cobblers Cottage and would definitely recommend it. The location couldn't be more perfect, Charlestown is beautiful with lots of lovely restaurants and we were right opposite a pub. We also managed to park the car along the main road quite easily.

Cobblers Cottage is such a quaint little lean-to cottage adjoining a larger house which is ideal for a couple, in the heart of Charlestown. The location is ideal for local restaurants but also very central for all the places you would want to visit on your holiday.

A Lovely cottage for couples to enjoy a break in beautiful Charlestown. Walking distance to bars & restaurants, surrounded by coastal walking routes...all in all, this place is a real gem and we are so glad we have found it. If there is anything to consider, the parking can be tricky (depending on time of the day).... after 6pm it was easier to finRead mored a space, especially on a weekend when there are many visitors at the harbour.

Cosy, characterful and relaxing cottage. Perfect for the two of us. Reading previous reviews was concerned re noise but I think this is simply to do with frame of reference; didnt bother us in the slightest but then again we dont live in a quiet street. Lovely and warm; storage heater is more than enough but electric fire makes it even cosier. LoveRead morely location and in walking distance of a many nice restaurants. Parking little frustrating during the day as so popular. Plenty of space at night. Hide

Central location in great place with selection of places to eat and drink. Easy access to SW coastal path. Comfy seating area and kitchen reasonably well equipped. Bed is hard and as pubs turn out can be a bit noisy. Parking in street was fine but might prove difficult in high season.

the cottage is really nice and cosy (compliments for making such a small space so attractive and the olcation is just great) - except for the fast that traffic practically runs through the lower floor of the building. We would have liked to know that it can be really noisy at times.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
