Almost within touching distance of the tall ships moored in Charlestown's tiny harbour, and with views of the coastline too, The Copper House sits right on the harbourside of this historic village. Referencing Charlestown’s past as a major exporter of copper, this delightful 18th Century cottage has been stylishly updated to provide modern comforts, whilst retaining many original features. Poldark enthusiasts will recognise this beautiful location, with the unspoilt terraced cottages and the tall ships in the water used on numerous occasions for filming.
With the sitting-room and both bedrooms looking out at the view, it’s a prime spot for sitting back and watching the bustling activity around the harbour, and sand and shingle beach.
The Copper House is located next door to The Captain’s Gig (3728), making it the ideal base for groups of up to nine adults.
Charlestown is an atmospheric little working harbour, a wonderful reminder of the historic age of sailing, with tall ships often moored at the quayside and a bustling museum that showcases this bygone age.
With original features such as sash windows, low doorways and slate flagstones, The Copper House has been gently updated to include modern comforts including central heating, powerful showers and a fully-fitted kitchen, making this a truly welcoming holiday destination. The pared-back interior references the cottage’s historic past, with a Shaker-style kitchen, uncluttered bedrooms and a wood-burner effect gas stove in the sitting-room. The master bedroom has views over the harbour and coastline, an en suite shower-room and plenty of space if you have a travel cot to put up. Bedroom 2 has twin beds and easy access to the family bathroom.
There is a long garden at the rear, an unexpected space in a village centre location, with a deck area at the far end from where you can see the coastline and sea. The harbour, beaches either side of the harbour entrance and coastal footpath are all just steps away, and a short walk around the harbour brings a choice of pubs, restaurants, village shops and cafes. If you can bring yourself to leave this wonderful location, the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the fishing port of Mevagissey and the pretty sailing town of Fowey are all within easy reach.
