The property

Colourful, quirky and fun with original artworks at every turn, Captain's Cottage has a unique style. Nestling in a pretty rural spot between the inspirational Eden Project and fabulous Fowey, the drive along the tree lined lane to the cottage is just the start of the adventure. Take a trek through the rain forest or a ramble around the Mediterranean in the amazing Biomes at Eden; less than a mile by foot, this world renowned attraction offers a discount for those who walk, cycle or take public transport to get there. Sandy beaches within a short drive include Pentewan, Porthpean and Par which is dog friendly.

Just over five miles away is Fowey, arguably the prettiest of the Cornish towns. A natural deep water harbour and designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the pastel coloured cottages of the town cling to the banks of the River Fowey in higgledy piggeldy fashion. With boutique shops and galleries lining the narrow streets and seafood galore it is worth devoting a day to this very special place.The Luxulyan World Heritage site is just over two miles away, a woodland valley steeped in copper mining history.

With a clever mix of the contemporary and traditional Captain's Cottage is without a hint of magnolia. The elegant sitting room contrasts with the cosy informal snug where grownups and teenagers can flop in front a film on the 46'' screen or play computer games on the smart TV (please bring your own devices). In warmer months fold back the wall of glass doors separating the kitchen from the wide deck and let the little ones play hide and seek amongst the trees in the rambling enclosed garden. Squishy mattresses, feather pillows (non feather available) and crisp linens await upstairs and the master en-suite bathroom is a luxury in itself.

About the location

ST BLAZEY

Eden Project 1 mile; Charlestown 3 miles; St Austell 3 miles.

St Blazey is a small town situated three miles east of St Austell and was formerly an important engineering centre for the local mining and railway industries. The town is nowadays best known for being the closest to the Eden Project. Nearby Charlestown is a delightful and much sought after coastal village of stone cottages and regency houses. It is famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path. The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches, (including dog-friendly Par Sands) and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, with plenty to see and do. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, this is a great year round location.
