Description of Carole's Cottage Charlestown

It has been extensively renovated but with the intention of retaining a proper cottage feel. WE ALSO OWN MONA'S COTTAGE RIGHT NEXT DOOR WHICH HAS THREE BEDROOMS AND SLEEPS SIX PEOPLE.

Parking for you and your guests is is right outside, The road is quiet and safe.

A big plus is the private relaxing garden,

Carole's Cottage generously accommodates 4

We aim to make you feel comfortable and completely at home in our 1840's cottage, which has been renovated throughout to give you a traditional feel of cosiness and quality. The original slate front is one of only two which still exist in the village.

Two separate good size living rooms and a generous size kitchen offer plenty of family living space whatever the weather whilst the sheltered sunny and private garden is a major feature of the cottage- perfect for eating outside, relaxing with a book or sitting out in the evening.

The period cast iron fireplace with gas fired coals gives a warm welcome if you are a little chilly whilst central heating warms the whole house.

The location is just above the Harbour but hidden from the crowds at peak times, . A hidden gem offering privacy, yet direct access to the village, harbour and beaches. Chill out at lunchtime or spend an hour reading in the garden whilst the rest of your party are on the beach, fishing off the harbour or walking the coast path. A two minute walk will allow you to join the rest of the party for lunch with them in the pub.

The stable door at the back opens onto the quiet, private, sunny, slate paved, garden at the back of the cottage.

Our cottage has been totally renovated but retains a cottage feel. It has 2 comfortable sized bedrooms, the main one is a double with lovely sea views to greet you when you wake. The other is a generous twin.

The cottage perfectly accommodates four and is the ideal place to explore the area on foot, by bus or car. Feel free to phone for an informal chat before booking as we want you to feel happy about staying in the cottage.

Local Information

About the Owner

We live two miles away in St. Austell and have owned this cottage for 15 years. We rebuilt it with love and care over a long period and tried to retain all its traditional feel. One day we hope to move into it and so we did it up with that in mind rather than as a holiday let. You will find some quirky features which reflect the love we have for the cottage. Our three grown up children all live and work locally. We clean the cottage ourselves and are on hand should there be problems
