the cabin for 2, is very special and a bit unusual.
our cabin is a pair of tiny, exquisitely renovated Grade II
listed buildings, with a private sunny courtyard, designed
for alfresco eating, living and generally have a grand
time, hidden in the flower gardens of a grand georgian
grade II Listed house on the quay overlooking the
historic harbour village of charlestown.
the cabin sleeps 2 in seaside tranquillity.
built in the late 1700s, the tiny harbour village of
charlestown is largely unchanged and has been granted
UNESCO world heritage status.
the beaches, either side of the quay, are so close a
toddler can make it. It is an easy stroll over the quay's
lock gate to the hotel for a crab sarnie on their terrace
or you might like to stay at home in your lovingly
planted, south facing flower garden.
charlestown is approximately 10 minutes from both the
eden project and the lost gardens of heligan. it is also
ideally situated for visiting fowey, the maritime museum
in falmouth, the tate at st ives, and padstow with rick
stein's restaurants. the airport at newquay and jamie
oliver's restaurant fifteen are a short drive, and it is 10
minutes from the main line train station.
the beauty of the cabin is being able enjoying the best of
the weather whilst being protected from the worst, in
total privacy. the decoration is to the exceptionally high
standards you would expect from both of us.
the king size cabin bed would not be out of place on a
falmouth packet (ship). we have definitely spent far too
much time at the maritime museum! the bedroom has
style, comfort and attention to detail ... the ceiling is
low, adding to the charm ! the sheets are from the white
company and are the most fabulous egyptian cotton
percale (the duvet, pillows and towels are all from the
white company too). and you will find a hair dryer in the
chest of drawers.
the adjoining wet room has a wonderfully powerful
shower, basin and most importantly, a loo with a view !
the open plan sitting room/kitchen is designed for
comfort. there is a wonderfully squishy sofa, a smart
television, a bose sound dock and WiFi. all the kitchen
appliances would expect to find are there, a ceramic
hob, an electric oven, a fridge, a microwave and a
dishwasher. you'll find everything else you might need in
the cupboards. the washing machine, tumble dryer,
airier, iron and ironing board are to the rear
in the wash house.
eating is in the sitting room/kitchen with its bank of
windows overlooking your private garden or in the
enclosed courtyard, where you can soak up the sun
before, during or after a lazy lunch and if it looks as if it
might rain or the sun is just too hot (!) the state of the
art sail can, at the press of a button/crank of a handle,
cover the entire courtyard, meaning you can enjoy being
outside whatever the weather.
it is this, along with the magical setting that makes the
cabin so wonderful .... we spent a summer here
and didn't want to go home.
we do not allow animals, nor smoking.
parking is easy and free.
if you would like to come with friends, parents or parents
in law, but want to give them (and you ! ) a bit of space,
the studio is available for short stays all year round and
is at the top of the garden path.
our cottages are wonderfully close to each other
but not so close you can't breathe
and we can sleep up to 24.
do let us know if you'd like some great grub when you
arrive, during your holiday or the night you leave, and
maybe a brilliant breakfast box for your first morning
or every morning?
if you'd like our wonderful therapist to visit for some
spa at home just send us an email ...
