    Mr Popple

    “The cottage was lovely and the location was very convenient for the habour and restaurants.”

    I believe access would be a challenge for people with mobility issues, as there are stairs and a slippy floor in the downstairs hall. This needs a different surface. The equipment levels are good, however there are some niggling issues with the tiolet banging when flushed and the cooker fan that did not work. Really enjoyed my stay at this cottage and would use cornish cottage holidays again without a doubt

The property

An immaculate terraced cottage is a one minute walk from Charlestown's incredible harbour and sandy beach.

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 holiday.

The three bedrooms are tastefully decorated with crisp white linens and fluffy towels completing the picture.

To the rear of the cottage is a patio garden; sit back with an evening tipple and listen to the trickling waters of the little stream that runs just behind.

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 as well as being home to The Phoenix, a magnificent two masted tall ship which is open to the public (please check times in advance) and runs voyages out of Charlestown harbour subject to their sailing programme.

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.

A special coastal retreat, Speedwell is perfect for couples or families.
