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.

The apartment is a five minute walk from the harbour up a steep hill with the most spectacular ocean views you could wish for. The parking place is a little tight, so Paul suggested we park in the visitor parking, which worked well. Probably wiser to not visit Cornwall with a large car. The streets can be tiny! The apartment has a nespresso machine, which we didn't realize, so hadn't carried any pods with us. Otherwise it is done up really well with everything one could possibly want and more. Great DVD s and books as well. We will definitely go back to it.

It was warm and inviting.Excellent quality renovation. It had everything we needed for a short break. Would have loved to have stayed longer as we loved Mevagissey at this time of year.It was lovely to sit by the bay window and watch the fishing boats return in the morning. House was quiet and only a stone's throw away from the heart of Mevagissey. Would definately recommend. Excellent communication with owner.
