Cottages in Carlyon Bay, Cornwall your home away from home

Carlyon Bay is a delightful sandy beach resort close to St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall. It has a pleasant beach suitable for families and there is often live entertainment in the evenings. The surrounding area was once dependant upon the tin mining industry and fishing. The nearest town is St Austell and it has a main street of small shops, supermarkets, banks and cafés. The St Austell Brewery can be toured and it produces cask ales for the local pubs.

The area is well known for its small fishing harbours and whitewashed cottages in the rural villages. It is a beautiful area for walking, with high banks full of wild flowers lining the winding lanes. The South West coastal path provides many walks with sea views, although it can be hilly and strenuous in places.

It is beautifully presented and everything is of a high quality inside. The owners are there if you need them but do not intrude, you feel welcome to share the lovely site. It is rather remote and access is via a long farm lane but that added to the charm for us. Despite its seclusion It was very easy to get to north and south towns and beaches. A perfect self-catering getaway with the feel of a boutique hotel, we would love to come again. Highly recommended.

The property has everything you need for a holiday in Cornwall, under floor heating (if the weathers not be kind to you) lovely powerful shower with plenty of hot water and a well equipped kitchen. Decorated and finished off to a very high standard in each room, which is something you don't always expect from a holiday home which was a real treat!
