Oh my, this exquisite coastal escape is simply stunning! Stylish, chic and utterly boutique with interiors worthy of any design magazine, a pretty sunny garden and set in the heart of Charlestown, one of the most sought-after villages in Cornwall, let the love affair begin with Clay Cottage.
An oasis of calm and the warmest of welcomes await you behind the stone facade of this traditional, terraced Cornish cottage. The super well-equipped kitchen will delight the designated chef and inspire them to create their culinary masterpieces uses the freshest of local ingredients. The dining-area is wonderfully light and airy with double doors leading out to the back garden where the sheltered terrace provides a great alternative place to eat on sunnier days and balmy summer evenings.
The uber stylish sitting-room is striking and the place to retreat to on chillier days to cosy up in front of the toasty wood-burner and if you want some quiet time, escape to the snug to sink into the squidgy sofa with good holiday read - a Poldark novel no doubt.
The three dreamy bedrooms are the ultimate sanctuaries, one with the added luxury of an en suite shower-room and two with views out over the front garden to the harbour beyond. The beds are dressed to impress with gorgeous throws and cushions and restful tones.
Luxurious and lovely - Clay Cottage is the perfect year-round escape for families, friends and even couples who want to spoil themselves.
There's a certain magic and charm to the historic village of Charlestown, and you are only a few steps away from it all - so if you fancy a week off driving, you've picked the right place. Charlestown has a fantastic selection of coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and street food pop ups so you certainly won't be short of places to eat! There's a selection of stylish boutique shops and galleries if you fancy a spot of retail therapy and on warm summer evenings wander along the pretty harbour, marvelling at the historic tall ships whilst picking up a treat from one of the street food stalls.
If you're in search of those breathtaking coastal views synonymous with Cornwall lace up your walking boots, pack a picnic and head out for a scenic walk along the coastal path - your pampered pooch will be in their element. Or enjoy lazy days on the beach, building sandcastles and taking the odd dip in the crystal clear waters. If you're a Poldark fan, Charlestown was one of the favoured locations for filming the popular TV series, so you can seek out the filming locations and walk in the footsteps of Poldark himself!
If you do fancy venturing further afield St Austell Bay is dotted with a number of golden sand beaches and there's a fantastic choice of gardens to visit, including Heligan, Pinetum, Marsh Villa and of course, the Eden Project. The stylish sailing town of Fowey is nearby, and is well worth a visit for its restaurants, cafes, boutiques and galleries or perhaps to kayak up the river to the little village of Lerryn, said to be the inspiration of Kenneth Graham's Wind in the Willows.
