Lovely Cottage

5 of 5
We have just returned from a five night stay in this cottage. Situated behind the owners house at the side of the harbour it is recently completed. The renovation of the original building has been completed to a very high standard and everything has been thought through to give guests a very comfortable stay. We lacked for nothing and together with beautiful weather we had a very enjoyable stay. The terraced garden above the cottage was a bonus and we spent several hours just sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet. We stay in Charlestown when we come to Cornwall and this cottage will be our first choice in future.
