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.

Things to Do at Carlyon Bay, Cornwall Visit the Local Pubs

St Austell and the surrounding villages all have old pubs and inns which date back to smuggling times. They serve excellent pub food in charming surroundings and often have the local St Austell Brewery beer on tap.

Explore National Trust Gardens

Cornwall has some exceptional gardens full of colour in the spring with camellias, azaleas and exotic flowering trees. In the summer the herbaceous beds are a delightful sight. Lanhydrock and Trelissick Garden are two of the most lovely, both just a short drive from your Carlyon Bay holiday rental. Golf

One of the best ways to enjoy the rolling countryside and sea views is from one of the local golf clubs. Play a round at Porthpean Golf Club, 2 miles from Carlyon Bay or at St Austell Golf Club just down the road from your vacation home in Carlyon Bay.

Excellant facilities and clean modern appearance of property. Very useful to have own parking space

5 of 5
No issues for the facilites, except needing the manual to use the cooker and m.wave! (but we re not technical bods- so personal issue there). Used the oven but didn't use the microwave. Nice to have adequate pans to cook with as we do nt eat out often when on holiday. Ideal for two or two and a baby toddler. Nice to be in the village community. Bathroom lovely en-suite to bedroom.
