Bay View Cottage is set in a quiet location on the outskirts of St Austell offering superb views over the Bay. The cottage is accessed by a private gated entrance onto a stunning enclosed driveway with plenty of parking. Within easy access are all the major tourist attractions- The Eden Project, Gardens of Heligan, Trewithen, Charlestown, Padstow, Newquay are all just a short drive away. Bay View Cottage offers free wifi, TV with BTVision (with BT sports & kids channels), DVD player, stereo, fully-equipped kitchen and a washing machine. There is plenty to keep children of all ages entertained- a games room, and there is a communal garden occupied also by our friendly mini-shetlands, Dillon, Honey and Flame who are always ready and waiting for company. It is a great base from which to explore everything that Cornwall has to offer and is especially ideal if you like to have a bit of peace away from the crowds in the evenings. Children can play in the grounds while adults get to relax with a glass of wine on the private patio with views out to St Austell Bay.
The Eden Project is on the doorstep at Carn Grey. The Eden Project has plenty of all year round activities to offer- winter skating rink, Easter activities and Christmas markets etc. Of course, during the summer there is always plenty going on in the Tropical and Mediterranean biomes- not to mention all of the music events and festivals. Carn Grey is a fantastic vantage point to survey the South Coast and is also within easy access of all that the North Coast has to offer. If you would prefer not to drive, St Austell has a mainline train station and there are also very regular bus services. St Austell itself also has plenty to offer for those rainy days- St Austell Brewery, Wheal Martin Museum and Charlestown Shipwreck Centre all give a fascinating insight to the local history. St Austell also has a new cinema complex and a small new shopping centre complete with Eden Cafe which offers live music events. Truro is a 20min drive and offers a fantastic place to shop (if the mood takes you). Nearby Par offers an indoor soft play zone for young children along with an indoor Cornish market.
We moved here in 2007 as we fell in love with the stunning views and the unique character of Carn Grey. The location is so ideal for accessing both the South and also the North coast of Cornwall.
Bay View Cottage offers both the benefits of a quiet location ideal for relaxing away from the summer crowds and yet also offers all the amenities to make your holiday as stress free as possible. Access to the A30 is easy and so wherever you want to go for the day is never too arduous.
Children can find plenty to do at the cottage if you decide to spend the day relaxing at home. The ponies are always ready and willing companions (as are also the guinea pigs) and there is plenty of space for children to run free come rain or shine!
We had a very comfortable stay at the cottage. It was given to us in a very clean condition and was equipped with all the essentials required by us. The location was ideal with a lovely view and with various accessible sites to visit nearby.
What a lovely stay, thank you so much for a lovely welcome, a friendly owner and a gorgeous house to stay in. You had thought of everything, so much to keep our children entertained!! Will definitely be back
Thanks, Laura Darren Gracie Evie and Archie
The cottage was lovely as were the grounds and setting, we couldn't have had a more perfect location for our holiday. We would thoroughly recommend it and will hopefully be retuning soon.
Lovely cottage with a well equipped kitchen, comfy rooms and beautiful views out to sea. The owner was very warm and welcoming. The major draw card for my family was just how close the cottage was to the Eden project. We would definitely stay here again.
A beautiful cottage in a lovely part of the world. Very pleasant view with excellent facilities. Everything was prepared for our arrival on the Friday night, the house was cozy and warm with the lights on in the night. The girls loved the selection of DVD's, books and games and we even had an exciting hide-an-seek one of the evenings. It's a perfect base to visit Eden Project (a couple of minutes away driving) or the lovely little port of Charlestown which is similarly close. For food we can warmly recommend Ghurka, the Indian takeaway in StAustell as well as Wreckers in Charlestown. The cottage is also a lovely place to be even if the weather is not perfect - just having a cup of coffee in the conservatory with our parents on the Saturday morning while the rain kept pouring outside was a memorable and relaxing experience. We only regret not spending enough time there - maybe seeing more of the lovely little pony's, checking the outdoor playing area - but we went only for a weekend. It's definitely worth a second visit. Many thanks Karen!
The cottage is ideally located, comfortable, cosy and very well equipped. The view is stunning - From every room you can enjoy the view over the bay and into the beautiful garden and countryside.
The garden is beautiful with several spaces to sit an relax. It is also huge with lots of playground equipment for the children and a lawn to play football.
We had sunshine almost every day so both parents and children spent many hours on the beautiful property.
For rainy days and evenings there are also lots of games, books and DVSs.
Bay view cottage is an ideal place for holidays with children and also perfectly located to explore Cornwall.
Thank you very much Karen and Alan, we will surely come back.
Bay View Cottage is within 2 miles of the Eden Project, and a short drive from the Gardens of Heligan and Trewithen. Also a short drive away are the shipwreck heritage centre of Charlestown and the popular fishing villages of Fowey and Mevagissey which offer plenty of choice for restaurants and shops. For a day at the beach, a 5min drive takes you to Carlyon Bay, Polkerris, Pentewan Sands, and Porthpean. Bay View Cottage is also a great starting point for walkers or cyclists- there are an abundance of scenic walks along the coastal paths or on the clay trails. If you decide you also want to explore further, the North coast of Cornwall is also only a short drive away- offering you the fishing village of Padstow and the ancient town of Tintagel. Further afield, an hours drive will take you to St Ives and St Michael's Mount which are fantastic for a day-trip.
