Please note: This property will accept one small dog only, kept downstairs. The property can sleep up to 6 people using the truckle bed (child use only - maximum 4ft in height). Small travel cot provided.

A stylishly furnished early 1800's mid-terrace three bedroom property, Lantern Cottage is an easy stroll down into the historic village of Charlestown with its famous harbour, beach, restaurants and pubs. The property boasts charm and character whilst managing to combine comfort and style for a relaxing holiday. Charlestown itself is the primary filming location for the popular television series Poldark and understandably so given its unique backdrop.

The cottage has a long lawn garden to the front with outdoor furniture to make the most of its sunny, south easterly aspect. From a gated pathway which leads up a long path into the covered porch way, the property is entered by a long hallway where you will find the comfortable living room with open fire, sofa, rocking chairs and views out across the front garden. The kitchen/diner is at the rear of the property with original slate flagstone flooring and smart duel fuel range cooker. The small, enclosed garden to the back also benefits from a sunny position and a Cornish 'outhouse' is provided for the hanging of wet suits and storage of bikes.

The carpeted staircase leads up to the three attractively furnished and presented bedrooms and family bathroom WC.  The first bedroom has a 4ft double bed looking out across the front garden. The second bedroom has a king size bed and again looks out across the front garden. To the rear is a single bedroom with truckle bed facility for an extra child and views out to the back garden and church steeple beyond. The cosy family bathroom WC has a bath, overhead shower and wash hand basin. The property is centrally heated and all rooms with the exception of the kitchen and bathroom are carpeted.

Although there is no designated parking for the property, ample unrestricted road parking to the front is available with the bonus of additional guaranteed parking at the owners property a few hundred yards up the road, if required.

All the amenities of Charlestown are within easy walking distance including a children's playground, a small selection of pubs and restaurants and the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre next to the quayside. St Austell, 1.5 miles, has a wider range of facilities and a main line railway station.  The coastal path and two small beaches, one sandy the other more stoney are only a few minutes walk and both the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short drive.

Please note:

This property will accept one small dog only, kept downstairs.

The property can accommodate up to 6 people using the truckle bed (child use only - maximum 4ft in height).

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.

Lantern Cottage - Testimonials
Close
  • "Lovely stay in your pretty cottage. We've enjoyed exploring Charlestown especially the amazing ice cream from the Tall Ships Creamery and the local pizza van from Slice. Finally made it to the Lost Gardens and visited Par Sands, Porthkerris, Mevagissey for a boat trip. Can you believe we even swam in the sea. Thank you for our visit. " Mr S Taylor
  • "What a wonderful find Lantern Cottage was. Immaculate, tastefully decorated and amazingly well-equipped. Perfect location for two minute walk to a selection of Charlestown restaurants and tall ships, plus central for Eden, Heligan etc. Crazy football golf a must too." Mrs V Kent
