This 2-bedroomed detached bungalow is situated on the Cornish Riviera in the historic market town of St Austell. St Austell is Cornwall’s largest town and is an ideal base for your holidays as it’s only a short drive away from all points North, South, East & West in Cornwall. St Austell is the perfect location as it offers all the amenities you may wish for, for a wonderful holiday right on your doorstep.
Located close to the sandy beaches of St Austell Bay, only a short walk (10mins) from the lovely, still working, Georgian port of Charlestown, and set... in a very central position to the historic market town of St Austell and surrounding environs, Mac’s House is a charming & spacious 2-bedroomed bungalow. There is just two low steps up to the bungalow and once inside there are nno other changes in level which makes for a wheelchair friendly location.

The nearest golf course is at St Austell Bay Golf Course (2mins down the road) with others close by at Porthpean & Carlyon Bay.

The nearest railway station is at St Austell which is 15mins walk away, and has extensive connections to other towns in Cornwall as well, of course, to other towns in the country. For instance, London is just, on average, 4,5hrs away (some of the fast trains do the trip in a really fast 4hrs..!!). Birmingham, 5hrs, so if you don’t want to drive you can, in the words of the old advert, “let the train take the strain”…

In fact, everything is so close you probably don’t really need a car.

It is centrally heated throughout. WiFi computer access is also provided, just in case you need to consult your emails whilst away.

The large, south facing, garden to the rear of the property is very sheltered and offers a really large paved patio area (50m2) as well as smaller patio area with a barbecue.
