the guest book says just what we had hoped it might,
down to "on a stormy night the waves lull you to sleep"
the studio sleeps 2 in open plan, open to the rafters,
grade II listed, snug as a bug, seaside bliss.
the light in the studio is glorious ( we really have spent
too much time at barbara hepworths house in st ives ).
with its private sunny garden, the studio is tucked
behind the original wing of a grand georgian grade II
listed house on the quay, overlooking the historic
harbour village of charlestown and is fabulous.
the studio sleeps 2 in open plan seaside tranquillity.
built in the late 1700's, 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 you can
smell the salt in the air. 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 the lovingly
planted south facing garden.
charlestown is approximately 10 minutes from both the
eden project and the lost gardens of heligan. it is also
wonderfully placed 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 bed is a sumptuous king.
the decoration is to the exceptionally high standards you
would expect from us. style, comfort and attention to
detail are the operative words. the sheets are from the
white company and are the most fabulous egyptian
cotton percale ( the duvet, pillows and towels are all the
white company too ). the delabole slate floored wetroom
has a fabulously powerful shower, loo and basin. and
you will find a hair dryer in the chest of drawers.
there is a wonderfully comfy sofa, a smart telly, a bose
sound dock and the WiFi works a treat.
the galley kitchen has all the appliances you would
expect: an oven that is also a microwave, an electric
hob, a fridge, a dishwasher, an iron and ironing board
and hopefully everything else you might need.
maybe take one of life's greatest luxuries, an afternoon
snooze. then drag yourselves out for supper !
we do not allow animals, nor smoking.
parking is easy and free.
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
if you'd like our wonderful therapist to visit for some
spa at home just send us an email.
