Why book a holiday cottage in Charlestown?
Charlestown holiday lets provide an opportunity to immerse yourself in the classic Cornish coast vibe, and our range of self-catering options, ensures that you'll find the perfect Charlestown accommodation for your stay.
Despite being just a mile or so from the larger town of St Austell, where we also have a selection of holiday homes, this beautiful Georgian era port is relatively unchanged. Its appearance is still akin to its heyday as a working port and important centre of the copper and china clay industries. This has made it popular as a filming location for period dramas, and you might already be familiar with it from Poldark, Hornblower, and Mansfield Park amongst others. Its historic charm is part of what makes cottages in Charlestown so popular.
While self-catering in Charlestown, you'll have plenty to see, including the Shipwreck Centre, where you can explore both the port’s and Cornwall’s fascinating maritime history. In the harbour you’ll also find some classic examples of tall ships, which regularly visit the area and add to the maritime ambiance.
Places to visit in and around Charlestown
Before you book one of our Charlestown cottages you’ll probably want to know what else you can do in the area. There is plenty to see within easy striking distance of the village.
A visit to Porthpean beach is a must. Although compact, this is a standout gem on the South Cornwall coast. The light sandy beach has a distinctly Mediterranean feel to it, especially on a bright summer’s day. Backed by rugged tree-lined cliffs providing shelter, this is a popular beach and it’s easy to get to, so be sure to arrive in good time if you’re visiting in peak season.
Head further south and you’ll reach Pentewan beach. Privately owned but open to the public, this wide expanse of white sand is ideal for soaking up the sun and swimming. Travel a little inland from here and you’ll reach the incredible beauty of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, where you can enjoy enchanting walks set in 200 acres of woodland.
Set off in the other direction from your Charlestown accommodation and you can visit the Eden Project, Cornwall’s most popular attraction. And along the coast there’s also Par Sands Beach which offers a pet-friendly experience as it’s open to dogs all year round.
