The property

This pretty stone cottage and its lovely gardens, within a countryside setting are less than 10 miles from the beaches between Porthpean, Charlestown and Carlyon Bay.

With the essence of country appeal the drive along the tree lined lane to the cottage is just the start of the adventure.

Nestling in a pretty rural spot, the inspirational Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are days out not to miss.

Peacefully located down a narrow lane amongst farmland and lightly wooded countryside, with only the occasional passing vehicle to disturb the silence, you are able to relax in the privacy of large secluded gardens, perfect for the family pet. Reversed accommodation takes advantage of far-reaching views over the landscape from the principal rooms.

Timber beams and trusses are rustic features of the main living rooms, with its delightful triple aspect, light streams into the lounge on three sides.

Recline in comfort, warming your toes beside an open fire in the cooler months, you will feel completely at home.

Downstairs the bedrooms are attractively arranged and a small garden room annexed to the main bedroom is an added bonus.

Central to the whole of Cornwall, touring is easy with all parts of the county within range.

Goss Moor is a 480 hectare National Nature Reserve, the largest surviving remnant of the Mid-Cornwall moors.

It is a unique wild and undeveloped environment to explore, get you hiking boots or bike out and enjoy.

The Eden Project, Newquay, St Austell and Mevagissey are within a 20 minutes drive.

Local shops, post office and a pub can be found 1 mile away in St Dennis.

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, and families, with plenty to see and do. Get back to nature with the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the ever-popular Eden Project, perfect for a family day out, or discover the delights of Caerhays Castle and Garden, flourishing in the maritime climate. Home to the St. Austell Brewery, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while sampling the delights of the local beer, after a tour of the Victorian brewery, and for those who love the surf and sand, St. Austell has plenty of both to choose from. Visit the beautiful sandy beach at Porthpean, or spend time at Carlyon Bay with its ever-popular shingle beach, a favourite for sun worshippers, but if you prefer a dip in the water, Polkerris is the place for you. Situated in a safe cove, it is renowned for variety of watersports. Whether it’s sailing, windsurfing or swimming you're looking for, Polkerris Beach has it all. Charlestown is a pretty, historical port just two miles away, famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, and is well worthy of a visit whilst staying in St. Austell. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, and something to keep the whole family entertained, St. Austell is a great year round location.
