Experience - The Area...

Uniquely placed in the heart of the unspoilt 18th century harbourside village of Charlestown, a world heritage site recently featured in Poldark, these sympathetically converted Grade II listed barns along with the owners red brick and stone farmhouse set amidst peaceful countryside are one of the oldest dwellings in the village.

Just a couple of minutes stroll from the sand and pebble beaches and coastal path, there is also a footpath running through the property leading to Carlyon Bay and several good restaurants.  The conservation area focuses around the quayside with visiting tall ships and still survives as a working harbour today.

Much care has been taken to retain the charm and character of these two south facing stone and slate barn conversions which are surrounded by extensive landscaped gardens for the visitors use with sea views from the lawn and ample parking space available. The location within the village provides a private and tranquil setting. Outside storage can also be made available for bicycles, canoes and boat trailers.  In the owners private garden, as a keen member of the Cornwall Beekeepers Association they keep beehives.

The amenities of the village are all close at hand, including the Shipwreck & Heritage Centre, restaurants, tea rooms, pub and hotel. St Austell, 2 miles, has a good choice of supermarkets and shops, a railway station, 4 golf courses and the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are within a 10 - 15 minute drive. Newquay Airport and the North Coast is only 30 minutes away.

Stay - The Accommodation...

The smaller of the two properties, this lovely barn is entered from the parking area where the front door leads directly into a pleasant living room open to the apex of the roof, with a comfortable leather seating area enjoying Sky TV, a fully fitted country style kitchen/diner and natural wood flooring.

A rear hallway gives access to a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, bath and shower cubicle, a twin bedded room with patio door opening to the landscaped lawn and gardens and a master bedroom with a kingsize double bed and an en-suite shower room W.C. with hand basin.

Stairs lead up from the living room to the first floor and an attractive landing/snug area with casual seating ideal for reading or as a children's play room and to one side a door opens to the third bedroom with two 3ft single beds tucked under the eaves with some exposed low beams.

Don't forget...

- Owners provide free charcoal/firelighters for the barbecue and can arrange for lobster and crab to be delivered
- This property is one of our super pet friendly properties and welcomes a maximum of two dogs
