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.
