Our third visit to The Captains Gig & we simply love the cottage because of its location. The cottage is beautifully presented and of course situated in one of our favourite places in Cornwall; Charlestown. As more restaurants & pop up bars are opening, to meet the demand of an increasingly popular Charlestown, parking becomes more difficult but overall still a fantastic place for a holiday.

A perfect place to stay and start some tours.

A wonderful cottage right in Charlestown harbour with direct access to coastal path. Many other towns and sight seeing options only a short drive away (Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Helligan, St. Austel Brewery, Mevagissey, Fowey).

This is a beautiful cottage in a premium location. There is a relatively steady stream of visitors to the harbour and they walk on the private road at the front of the cottage daily. Personally we loved this, it did not feel intrusive and was part of the atmosphere of staying here. Some attention to detail on the small things in the cottage would have made all the difference on our overall rating.

Charlestown certainly is a popular spot for visitors to the area - many will have seen it pop up in their favourite period drama as it's often used as a location for filming. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, we're pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Alison, Customer Support

A comfortable and cosy cottage in a brilliant position overlooking the harbour and the sea. We loved it and hope to return before too long.
Mr Jordan September 2018
Very well appointed & in excellent condition. One of the best cottages we have stayed in in terms of position. The information supplied by Classic Cottages was first class particularly things to do in the area.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable with lots of character. The décor throughout was simple and attractive. We enjoyed the views of sea and harbour from the front windows and Charlestown itself has craft shops and good restaurants without its old fashioned charm being spoilt. We enjoyed fish and chips and a bottle of wine in front of the lit woodburner and lovely walks in the morning along the beach with the dog. All in all the place was perfect to retreat to and I'd definitely like to return in the summer.

Perfect holiday home for a family who want to feel at home and be in comfortable surroundings. Beautiful scenery which can be enjoyed from lovely front garden. Perfect place to while away the afternoon with a cup of tea. Can't wait to come back, thank you.

Good position but the continually passing parade is a little off putting. The stairs to the rear garden are heavily overgrown by plants which need trimming and the stairs swept.

Thanks for letting us know about your stay - we're sorry that you felt the garden was a bit overgrown, and we'll ask the owners to have a look. The position of the property right above the harbour does mean that there will be some comings and goings, but being in heart of the village does mean that you are well placed to enjoy all that is on offer.

Excellent location. Great with children as well.
Miss Weston August 2017
I would recommend this beautiful little property to anyone. The location is superb, the quality of the finishing in the property is very high quality. The view from the front of the cottage over the quay is just lovely, and all with the beach and pubs just a stone's throw away (not to mention a few ice cream sellers, which my daughter was delighted with!). I had thought that parking was going to be a problem, but actually it was fine. A great place to relax and watch the world go by.

The Captain's Gig is an amazing place to stay on a family holiday. Charlestown is a hidden gem. Best holiday we've had in years.
Mr Vering June 2017
Great spirit in the old house! love is in the house
The conservatory with the big kitchen ist a great place for cooking an dining. The living-room with the bench is a place where everybody wants to stay. second bed ist a little bit small - for lovers only the view and the few meters to go everywhere - couldn´t be better
only problem: you have to leave the house after holiday ;-)
