The property

This pretty stone cottage and its lovely gardens, within a countryside setting are less than 10 miles from the beaches between Porthpean, Charlestown and Carlyon Bay. With the essence of country appeal the drive along the tree lined lane to the cottage is just the start of the adventure. Nestling in a pretty rural spot, the inspirational Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are days out not to miss. Peacefully located down a narrow lane amongst farmland and lightly wooded countryside, with only the occasional passing vehicle to disturb the silence, you are able to relax in the privacy of large secluded gardens, perfect for the family pet.

Reversed accommodation takes advantage of far-reaching views over the landscape from the principal rooms. Timber beams and trusses are rustic features of the main living rooms, with its delightful triple aspect, light streams into the lounge on three sides. Recline in comfort, warming your toes beside an open fire in the cooler months, you will feel completely at home. Downstairs the bedrooms are attractively arranged and a small garden room annexed to the main bedroom is an added bonus.

Central to the whole of Cornwall, touring is easy with all parts of the county within range. Goss Moor is a 480 hectare National Nature Reserve, the largest surviving remnant of the Mid-Cornwall moors. It is a unique wild and undeveloped environment to explore, get you hiking boots or bike out and enjoy. The Eden Project, Newquay, St Austell and Mevagissey are within a 20 minutes drive. Local shops, post office and a pub can be found 1 mile away in St Dennis. There is ample parking.

About the location

ST AUSTELL

Pentewan 4 miles ; Charlestown 1.5 miles ; Truro 15 miles

Just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast, St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The landscape around St Austell is rich in kaolin (china clay) and this once made the region extremely prosperous. Today, the china clay industry is in decline and tourism has become the mainstay of income for St Austell and its surrounding parishes. St Austell town centre is home to a range of independent and well-known shops, an undercover shopping centre and a Local Produce Market, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. There is also a range of excellent restaurants, cafes and inns – from traditional country pubs to 2 AA rosette fine dining. Just outside St Austell is the iconic Eden Project, as well as the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, Kidzworld, and the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. There are some beautiful beaches in this area, too – many with good kayaking conditions – and many miles of coastal footpath to explore. The mainly traffic-free Pentewan Cycle Trail runs from St Austell to Pentewan; here you can enjoy a bite to eat at the village pub or beach burger shack before making your return journey to St Austell. One of St Austell’s main events is the Torchlight Carnival which takes place each November – and of course, the World Pasty Championships, which are held at the Eden Project each March!
