The property

A special coastal retreat, this immaculate cottage is a one minute walk from Charlestown's incredible harbour and sandy beach, used as a location for the filming of Poldark.

A daily stroll around this historic unspoilt village will reveal elegant Georgian Houses, quaint fisherman's cottages, coffee shops, gift shops and a rather good pub.

Charlestown, a Unesco World Heritage Site, still survives as a working port with many a tall ship coming and going as well as fishing boats and other water craft.

The village is also home to the Shipwreck, Rescue and Heritage Centre, a mighty collection of artefacts including pieces from the Titanic.

Slap bang in the middle of the Cornish Riviera, other coastal hotspots nearby include Mevagissey, Looe and Fowey and we recommend the latter for a day of browsing galleries and boutiques followed by a waterside lunch and a spot of boat watching.

For keen walkers, the South West Coastal path meanders through the village and around the south coast revealing hidden coves, wooded valleys and cliff top drama.

The biomes of the Eden Project are also within ten minutes drive, host to a wide range of music and arts events throughout the year, it is much more than a collection of tropical plants.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a great nearby visitor attraction for all the family. Speedwell has been thoughtfully furnished to create a homely and welcoming space to return to at the end of the day.

The open plan living room has a cosy gas fire and patio doors leading to the enclosed rear garden.

The kitchen is light and airy and well equipped with everything you will need for your self catering holiday.

Sit back with an evening tipple and listen to the trickling waters of the little stream that runs just behind the garden.

Perfect for couples or families, the three bedrooms are tastefully decorated with crisp white linens and fluffy towels completing the picture.
