Come and stay at Seasalt in the vibrant fishing village of Charlestown on Cornwall's magical south coast. As you expect, the area provides many miles of superb and unspoilt walking over coastal and inland footpaths, whilst for sailing enthusiasts the Fal estuary to the West and Fowey to the east provide excellent waters. Three good golf clubs and facilities for fishing, horse riding and shooting are all within easy distance. Notable local attractions such as the Eden Project, just 4 miles to the east, and the many National Trust properties and famous open gardens, such as Heligan, 7 miles to the north east. Seasalt, looking seaward over the harbour 50 meters away, has, stunning views of the sea and the masts and square sails of the Tall Ships gracefully berthed in the World Heritage Site of Charlestown. The cottage itself is part of a new development of an old building and can truly be described as unique.

Big place great location
Superb place really big and walking distance to restaurants pubs and really good hikes
Just loved the old ships in the lock
A very comfortable, well equipped property.
Well situated for many attractions. A quiet area with eateries & pubs nearby.
A cornish gem!
What a pretty, well equipped and super-comfortable property! It was warm and clean and very well equipped, although we were surprised there were no hand towels (we'll bring our own next time). Every room was delightful and the master bedroom amazing!
We had a wonderful stay here and enjoyed being right in the centre of charming Charlestown. With plenty of restaurants and bars, a wonderful deli (Wreckers) and delightful craft shop (Charlestown Craft Gallery) as well as The Creamery for delicious ice creams and cakes, along with beautiful views and the interesting Shipwreck Centre, we couldn't have been better served.
Owing to its perfect location on the south coast, Charlestown is within easy reach of all our favourite haunts - Fowey, Mevagissey, Looe and Polperro - as well as being accessible to points further afield such as Padstow and The Lizard.
We will definitely be returning to Sea Salt - it's one of the prettiest properties, in the best location, that we have found in 35 years of coming to Cornwall!
Lovely light airy cottage.
We’ve been a few times now. Always enjoyed it.
Well equipped and plenty of space.
Beautiful cottage in an excellent location.
We had a fantastic stay at Seasalt - it is a very pretty cottage ideally situated in the centre of Charlestown, within easy walking distance of many lovely, restaurants. It is also a good central location to visit other parts of the coast and the surrounding area.
The cottage is extremely well equipped and tastefully decorated, it was a pleasure to stay there.
Nice property in fantastic location
Location of this place is great. Was hard to tell from the map but it is right in the middle of Charlestown which is a historic port and situated on the south west coastal path.
House was nicely decorated with everything you would need for a stay.
