Our aim is to make you feel comfortable and completely at home in our 1860's cottage, which has been extensively renovated throughout. The original slate front is one of only two which still exist in the village. Two separate good size living rooms and a generous size kitchen gives plenty of family living space whatever the weather. The location is just above the harbour, away from the crowds at peak times, offering privacy yet immediate access to the village, harbour and beaches, ideal for exploring the area on foot, by bus or car. Parking for yourselves and your guests is right outside. A Stable door opens onto the private, sheltered, granite/brick courtyard with elevated lawn area. Ideal to chill out at lunchtime or spend an hour whilst the rest of your party are having a stroll or on the beach. There is both sun and shade. Pop down in two minutes for lunch with them in the pub. Prior to booking please feel free to phone for an informal chat as we want you to be totally at ease about choosing to stay in Mona's cottage. If you stay here we can offer you free unlimited parking 100yds from St. Austell railway station for train days out. Alternatively, if you would like a car free holiday we can offer you complimentary transfers to and from the railway station at the beginning and end of your holiday. We can also arrange transfers to and from Newquay Airport at nominal cost.
If you are trying to find the property on Google Earth there is no Street View as the roads in and around the harbour are all private and have not been surveyed. On the satellite view the cottage can be found by going to the top end of the harbour, look to the right to see the Shipwreck Centre. There is a road which is at right angles to the harbour running up the right hand side of the Shipwreck Centre and at the end on the opposite side there is a row of cottages on the right and a pair of cottages on the left which on the satellite view looks like a large detached property but is actually a pair of semis. The cottage is the right hand one of these.
