Historic cottage and garden close to Georgian harbour
One of a terrace of Grade two listed stone cottages, Gwel-an-Porth, Charlestown Cottages, Charlestown has all the features of a character home. There's a stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove and painted beams in the cosy sitting room. Ideal for four, the cottage has a double and a twin bedroom upstairs, both with sea views. The modern bathroom has a bath and shower over. The kitchen is amply equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a full range of appliances. A door leads outside to a lawned garden with furniture.
Sleep well beneath the beamed ceiling after a busy day of surfing, walking or exploring the local attractions. Wake up to sea views through the bedroom window.
Gwel-an-Porth is in the heart of Charlestown, a stone's throw from the port where tall ships still moor for filming and chartered sailing trips. Stroll down to the shingle beach at low tide and frequent the tea rooms, pubs and restaurants lining the tiny harbour. Visit the Shipwreck Treasure Museum – it's a fascinating trove of sea stories and maritime exhibits. Walk the coastal path to Carlyon Bay, just a mile away. Nearby St Austell (three miles) has shops, pubs and the St Austell Brewery with its fascinating tours, or visit the Eden Project (four miles).
