Luxury Harbour-Side Holiday Home
This luxury holiday home invites you to relax and unwind in the historic and pretty harbour village of Charlestown. The open plan living area with log burning stove is the perfect place to spend time together whether you are a couple or a small family.
After spending a day on the beach come home and rinse off under your outdoor slate shower and then spend some time sitting in the stunning landscaped gardens that overlook the harbour and sea. If all that sounds too much like hard work though, why not pour a glass of wine and soak up the bubbles in your very own hot-tub!
Inside, make the most of your en-suite master bedroom with high top bath at the end of your bed that looks out to sea before tucking in for the night in your sumptuous bed, ready for the next day of sightseeing and exploring, on your holiday.
When you fancy a night in there is satellite TV, free Wifi, comfortable sofas and a Sonos sound system. So whether you prefer to kick back and watch a film, read a book or relax with your favourite music then Harbour Lights has it all.
Don’t just take our word for it though, this property was featured on Channel 4’s ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’. There are sea views to be found everywhere from the garden, to the kitchen, to the bedroom… you will be spoilt for choice. This property will make you want to return time and again!
The south of Cornwall holds many gems and Charlestown on The Rame Peninsula is one of them! Poldark fans will recognise this small harbour village, which is regularly featured in the hit BBC series. It was originally built in the 1700s to export copper and import coal and a visit to the harbour feels like stepping back in time. The harbour has places to eat out, including a pub and there are also some craft shops to browse or purchase a souvenir from.
You can reach the seashore in Charlestown if you fancy a paddle but if you are looking for a sandy beach, away from the crowds then Hemmick Beach is off the beaten track but well worth a visit of you can get there. Small but perfectly formed with sheltered spots for a picnic or a little bit of lolling in the sun. A more popular beach for ease of access is Par Sands, a long stretch of sandy beach suitable for all the family.
A couple of miles away is the popular seaside harbour of Mevagissy, which has quaint little streets lined with shops, galleries and cafes. On sunny days, grab some traditional fish and chips and eat them harbourside, while watching the fishing boats bob up and down. If you enjoy walking then you can easily access the South-West Coastpath from Mevagissy and walk back to Charlestown taking in the stunning Cornish coast on the way.
Garden lovers won’t want to miss a trip out to Pinetum Gardens, a 30 acre estate made up of different areas including water gardens, Japanese gardens and more besides. Also high on the list for garden lovers are The Lost Gardens of Heligan a lost estate, only rediscovered in the 1990s and lovingly restored to their former glory.
Other nearby attractions include the Wheal Martin, Cornwall’s china clay museum, catch the ferry from Mevagissy to Fowey, Caerhays Castle and much more on top. There is something for everyone on this stretch of the south coast in Cornwall.
