The property

Resting close to the Cornish Riviera coastline in Carlyon Bay is the ultra-chic and contemporary retreat to Cornwall.

This stylish dwelling promises a quaint bolthole for a couple looking to get away from their everyday routine.

After a busy day exploring the area, be welcomed into a brightly decorated, open-plan living room, where the designated chef can rustle up a romantic meal for two, before unwinding within the well-presented sitting area, offering a neutral colour palette and elegant furnishings to ensure a tranquil stay.

Promising a good night's sleep is the double bedroom, situated on the first floor, where you and your loved one can relax within tranquillity before an adventurous day around Cornwall.

Step outside to discover a well-kept garden, where you can enjoy your morning coffee on the paved patio area or stretch your legs within the well-kept, shared lawn area with quality rattan garden furniture for alfresco dining.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming property, you can explore the impressive shoreline, offering romantic rambles, leisurely swims and picturesque scenery to be enjoyed.

Alternatively, head into the nearby town if Charlestown where you can wonder around the setting of TV’s Poldark, the tall ships, the rustic Inns and a wealth of galleries, shops and eateries.

Also close by is the iconic Eden Project, which is the world biggest indoor rain-forest, where you can explore remarkable bio-domes of flora and fauna within a 10-minute drive.

About the location


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.
