    “We loved the cottage and its location.”

    However, the kitchen had a complicated microwave without an instruction manual. A manual for the electric oven would also have been appreciated.

The property

The sweeping view of blue horizon at St Austell Bay from this beautiful converted barn is a constant reminder that Cornwall's Riviera coastline and golden beaches are not far away.

Nestled slightly inland amidst scenic countryside on a working farm in the hamlet of Trethurgy, Black Rock combines excellent accommodation standards with a peaceful setting for a relaxing break yet is a short drive to the long sandy beaches at Pentewen, Porthpean and Par (dog-friendly) and some of the county's major tourist attractions.

Well placed for a varied holiday experience, the renowned Eden Project is within walking distance; Charlestown, famous for its collection of tall ships, is a 15 minute drive whilst the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey; the cathedral city of Truro and the charming fishing village of Mevagissey are a 30 minute drive.

Guests can end fun days on the coast with a soak in the hot tub; a sun-downer on the sheltered decked patio or beside the warming glow of the stylish wood burner in the cooler months.

The interior has rustic appeal with an ultra-glossy kitchen and two luxurious en-suite bathrooms adding a touch of glamour.

A pet sitting service is available by prior arrangement with the owners who live in the neighbouring farmhouse and dog towels and bowls are provided.

Pet owners, walkers and cyclists will discover scenic walks and cycle routes of the Clay Trails from the front door step and children will love to meet the resident chickens, ducks, geese and pigs.

It is ideal for larger groups when booked with the attached residence, Leghorn , which can accommodate four guests.

Within walking distance is the Knightor Winery & Restaurant and St Austell offers excellent wet weather alternatives including a cinema, ten pin bowling and indoor children's adventure centre.

There is ample parking and secure storage for bikes/surfboards.

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.
