The property

Charismatic fishing villages, coastal resorts and sandy beaches on the Cornish Riviera are reached within minutes from this delectable getaway in Carlyon Bay. Little Beach House is stylishly presented with a nautical inspired interior and comfortable, welcoming accommodation. Blessed with a generous shared sunspot garden for barbecues, morning lattes and barbecue suppers, and the bonus of a decadent private sauna room - it really does make a heavenly homestay close to the ocean.

Within a five minute walk from sandy Crinnis Beach, the shoreline beckons for romantic meanderings, paddles and swims. Ramble the cliff top boasting magnificent ocean views or pack a picnic. Charlestown, a haunt of TV's Poldark, hosts Tall Ships, traditional inns and a gathering of galleries, gift shops and restaurants - a pit-stop favourite! The beautiful resort of Fowey is seven miles away, famed for Regatta Week; a much loved sailing event and the Daphne du Maurier Festival. The harbour and estuary form part of a spectacular coastline; hire a canoe and explore the secret creeks, board a pleasure boat or enjoy a fishing excursion. Discover secluded beaches and woodlands. The water taxi to Polruan and Mevagissey makes a happy trip and the Bodinnick car ferry lands at Looe and Polperro - ideal for lunch and a scenic drive through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Tee off at one of the three nearby golf courses or discover The Eden Project, with amazing bio-domes of plant life, a 10 minute drive away or The Lost Gardens of Heligan, reached within eight miles.

Little Beach House makes a fabulous base for exploring Carlyon Bay. Annexed to the owners' own home on Beach Road with a garden for play and relaxation, this perfectly formed retreat is stylishly designed for two - a sunshine haven with an open-plan living room; a space to kick-back and dine, with a small kitchen for rustling up lunch - if you don't succumb to the superb restaurants and inns alongside the picturesque harbour at Charlestown! A sleep inducing bedroom, a pristine shower room and an indulgent sauna room for pure relaxation makes this seaside pad a firm favourite.

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!
