The property

Charlestown 7 miles.

The Kilns, an end-terrace property, restored and converted from an old China Clay Dry, is located in the county of Cornwall, just outside of St Austell, and set amidst an intriguing landscape, just 7 miles from the coast.

Bring your family and friends, as there is plenty to see and do in the neighbourhood, as well as lovely beaches to visit nearby.

As you arrive at your historic vacation home there is designated parking, with ample extra parking available within the West Dry's own large car park.

Step into the entrance and find the large kitchen/dining area, where the group's chef may prepare delectable foods using the electric oven and hob.

Gather around the dining table for a feast, and why not pop the cork on a bottle of bubbly to toast your vacation?

The living area, with its Smart TV and electric fire, as well as patio doors letting in natural light, can be found by taking the steps down to the ground level.

Open the doors to your own courtyard, complete with table and chairs for enjoying a cup of tea in the morning light.

As the sky darkens, enjoy a soak in the tub, or rinse the day away in the overhead shower.

Choose from four fantastic bedrooms at The Kilns: two twin bedrooms with a mix of ochre and grey, a king-size, or a ground-floor en-suite with a super-king-size bed.

You can use the shared laundry room to freshen up your holiday clothing in the morning before heading out to explore Cornwall!

The Kilns is a great place to go if you want to get away from it all.

The West Dry Accommodation

The West Dry Accommodation consists of six marvellous holiday homes resting on the outskirts of Roche, Cornwall. Formerly known as part of Great Wheal Prosper, a working clay dry, it has been converted into this fantastic collection of lettings you see today. As you can see, this group of properties enjoy a great deal of character, whilst also boasting TVs, access to a communal utility, ample off-road parking and their own private patios. Nearby, Roche Rock, an attraction that seems like an abandoned prop from the set of the court of King Arthur, rises dramatically from the china clay terrain to the north of St Austell. When you see the destroyed fifteenth-century church that sits on its flat summit, the mystery surrounding this tall, nearly cuboidal lump of granite is considerably heightened. When it comes to your amenities, there is a convenience store in Roche village, along with a newsagents, post office, pharmacy and hairdressers, takeaways, pasty shop, butchers and a grocery. If you're looking to treat your loved ones to a meal out, The Victoria Inn can be found just outside Roche and The Bugle Inn rests, as its name suggests, in nearby Bugle; both offer hearty meals and local ale. Be sure to venture to St Austell for an outing, with its additional amenities, along with access to the shores of Duporth, Porthpean and Carlyon Bay, St Austell Brewery and the St Austell Golf Club. There is a wealth of attractions settled within easy reach, the most notable being The Eden Project just a short drive away. The other attractions range from the Wheal Martyn Museum, Bodmin Jail and The Lost Garden of Heligan to the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, Camel Creek Adventure Park and Dairyland Farm Park; there is truly so much to see here. A fantastic stay that is brimming with history, choose The West Dry Accommodation.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

Filled with a range of pubs and bars, scrumptious local eateries, St Austell has a train station on the mainline connecting you easily to Truro and on down to Penzance. Newquay can also be reached by train via a quick change at nearby Par. St Austell’s central location in Cornwall provides the perfect setting for your next holiday to the Southwest. Spend your days on exciting outings to such attractions as The Eden Project or the nearby historical port of Charlestown, where you can see artefacts recovered from local ship wrecks at the Shipwreck Treasure Museum. Head to Porthpean Beach for a tranquil walk along the soft sands or hire a kayak for a paddle in the calm, crystal clear waters, before pampering yourself at The Clearing Spa or enjoying a quick nine holes at St Austell Golf Club. Grab some fresh ingredients from the local supermarket on your way back to your holiday home for an evening of wining and dining indoors. St Austell is the ultimate setting for a fabulous coastal getaway.
