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 house is lovely and perfect for a family like ours. (Myself , partner daughter, husband and 2 children and of course 2 dogs). My partner and I are regular visitors to the village so it was great to be able to stay somewhere we could share "St Teath" with my family. The house was very well equipped, and the beds comfortable - the rooms were all more than adequately furnished and, although the décor was a little tired this is to be expected when letting out to families with dogs. A perfect base for North Cornwall and its attractions. Would definitely stay again - loved it!.

Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.
