The property

5 The Old Smokehouse is a beautifully presented home, enjoying views across the Georgian harbour of Charlestown and out to sea, in the heart of Cornwall. Situated just moments away from the beach and close to a range of local amenities, this pet-friendly property offers stunning sea views and all the comforts of home, making it an ideal base for couples, friends, and small families alike. The property benefits from an off-road parking space, and a private, enclosed front garden, the latter offering a haven for alfresco dining whilst overlooking the beautiful harbour. Step indoors and be met by the open-plan living space, with sumptuous sofas to sink into, a well-equipped kitchen to take advantage of, and a dedicated dining area for all five guests. Prepare and enjoy meals together, flick on the Smart TV for a relaxing night in, or gather outside to plan your Cornish itinerary, with plenty to see and do nearby. As day turns into night, head upstairs to the bedrooms, starting with a king-size room, boasting original beamed ceilings, a modern en-suite shower room, and lovely vistas across the sea; the remaining bedrooms consist of a double and a single, both serviced by a separate bathroom with a further shower and bath. Discover the charming Charlestown harbour, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, offering a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, before following the coastline around to reach Duporth Beach and beyond for even further coastal scenes.

Charlestown is steeped in history, famous for the tall ships that used to transport the China Clay from the harbour far across the seas, and more recently the filming of TV's Poldark series, Doctor Who and movies such as Alice in Wonderland. Charlestown has a fantastic selection of coffee shops, pubs and restuarants and in the warmer months street food pop ups.

Enjoy traditional food in The Rashleigh Pub or The Pier House, fabulous candlelit seafood at Springtide, delicious burgers and cocktails in Rebellion and a wide variety of upmarket dishes in The Boathouse and The Longstore.

All of which are on your doorstep!

It also has a wonderful selection of boutique shops and galleries for those holiday mementoes and a Shipwreck museum. The nearby St Austell is a bustling market town, brimming with independent retailers and eateries is a must-visit, where you can also tour the St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre, or take a stroll through the historic sailing town of Fowey, travel back in time to Bodmin Jail or visit the beautiful Eden Project, an educational, environmental charity.

The famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and the National Trust property of Lanhydrock House are only a short drive away and guarantee a wonderful family day out. In the surrounding area, you can appreciate the beauty of Cornwall by taking one of the many walks, cycle routes, or horse-riding trails, or perhaps take a boat ride from the harbour, stopping off at many of the golden beachfronts, enveloping the county. Make wonderful memories with a stay at 5 The Old Smokehouse.
