  • John

    “A lovely place, with plenty of room for two people.”

    The main floor kitchen, dining, living room design was perfect for us. A comfortable bed and high water pressure shower are upstairs. Sue was extremely accommodating and solved the wifi hiccup before we arrived. It is very close to the Eden project and Lost Gardens of Heligan and really not that far from any other locations in Cornwall. Great views from the raised terrace at the rear of the place. Unfortunately, it wasn't warm enough to take advantage of it, though we got some great sunset ...

About the location

ST. AUSTELL

Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
