Enjoying sea views and uniquely placed with private access just 50 yards above the sandy sheltered beach at Porthpean and only 1 mile from the 18th century harbour side village of Charlestown, via the South West Coast Path. Retaining much of its period charm, this traditionally furnished detached grade 2 listed house as featured in the 2013 film, About Time is an ideal base for exploring the many sandy beaches of St Austell Bay, the fishing port of Mevagissey and the pretty sailing town of Fowey.

From a level gated gravel drive with parking for six to eight cars the front door opens into the entrance porch with flagstone floor and part glazed doors into the panelled reception hall with a slate floored boot room and W.C with hand basin.The ground floor accommodation comprises of; a fitted kitchen with table and chairs, laminate floor and two steps up to a small laundry, an impressive light drawing room with stripped timber floor, Broadwood Grand piano and partial sea views, a cosy morning room with timber floor and wood burning stove, a carpeted study and a large dining room with timber floor, dining table and ornamental fireplace.


From the dining room a door opens into the rear hall off which is the family room an additional light reception room with fireplace and partial sea views. French windows and a step from the drawing room, dining room and smoking room lead to a gravelled path and lawn to the front.  From the rear hall you will find a second, modern fitted kitchen with useful pantry area. Just beyond the second kitchen is a ground floor twin bedroom with seperate shower room W.C with basin.


There are two carpeted staircases with balustrading to the first floor with eleven traditionally and comfortably furnished bedrooms, 2 en-suite bathrooms and a further 5 bathrooms. The landing divides with 7 carpeted steps to a king size bedroom and wonderful sea views, a twin bedroom and bathroom W.C with hand basin and a further 5 carpeted steps to a double bedroom with sea views, dressing room and en-suite bathroom W.C with shower over the bath and hand basin. Off the central part of the landing is a twin bedroom with 2 steps up to an en-suite bathroom W.C with hand basin, a small double bedroom with sea views, a single bedroom with sea views and a further bathroom W.C with hand basin.


The first floor rear wing consists of a kingsize bedroom with lovely sea views, a small single bedroom, two twin bedrooms, a further single bedroom, a bathroom W.C with shower over bath and hand basin and two further bathrooms with bath and WC only.

The lawned garden extends to 10 acres with the main lawn on the seaward side with a rough path giving direct access to the beach at Porthpean below, the lawn then extends to the side of the property with gravel paths connecting the various smaller areas of the garden. The garden is not fully enclosed and therefore pets and children will require supervision. Porthpean has a sailing club, outdoor education centre and a family friendly beach with a seasonal dog ban.

All the amenities of Charlestown are within 1.5 miles by road including a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes, children's playground, quayside and small stoney beaches.

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.
