    “We were so very pleasantly surprised as we drove down Charlestown Road that Oh Buoy had its own parking place on a private car park , right outside the property.”

    A massive bonus ! ...

    A massive bonus ! From the first moment that we saw the property we were thrilled. Immaculate throughout. The comfiest bed, with extremely high quality linen . Fabulous pristine white towels. Great shower and bathroom. The sofa is huge and extremely comfortable. Great for chilling on an evening gazing out at the beautiful trees and greenery and listening to the birds chirruping. Great kitchen , with a very efficient boiler , plenty of storage and fully equipped with a welcome card, fresh flowers , prosecco and basic essentials and scones, jam and cream were all provided as a welcome gift. Lots of storage for clothes and suitcases. Best of all a lovely garden with comfy seating and sat out with a glass of wine in the sunshine and we dried our washing out there on the airer each day . The position of Oh Buoy is brilliant, so close to restaurants and bars and of course the wonderful harbour. Charlestown is perfect for popping to Eden Project and Mevagissy , Fowey , each only 20 minutes away and the roads are great! We walked along to Carlyon Bay one day and what a surprise.. the sandy beach and stalls selling refreshments and pastries, despite it being midweek and early morning. Oh Buoy is such a home from home , perfect. A credit to the owner, Victoria who we met briefly upon our arrival who was. So friendly and helpful . I cannot praise the property enough.

The property

Nestled away in one of the most sought after seaside villages in Cornwall, this well furnished cottage is set in a small private mews just a short stroll from the harbour and historic port of Charlestown.

As soon as you enter into the cottage you will sense the homely character and feel of the property that puts you at ease.

The first floor plays host to the open plan living room dressed to a high standard with a comfortable L shaped sofa and the country style dining area and the well-stocked kitchen that expresses a nautical theme in its design.

The two bedrooms are located on the ground floor and are both tastefully decorated, while the family bathroom is also on this level.

Locate the patio area outside where you can enjoy a cold drink or even some alfresco dining if you please.

Walk into the village where there are a wealth of fabulous restaurants, pubs and cafes that cater for all tastes, while there are also some lovely independent shops and galleries to take interest upon.

The distinctive harbour is romantic spot if you simply fancy watching the boats bob with the tide while the occasional bird call interrupts the silence.

It is also the location to various film projects such as the BBC drama Poldark.

If it’s a day at the beach that you seek then St Austell is your best bet as with 7 glorious locations to choose from; it really is a haven for beach lovers.

Adding to your sightseeing itinerary, the world famous Eden Project is within a 10 minute drive while the popular Gardens of Heligan is also close by.

A fabulous setting for a holiday, any time of year.
