Description

The Waterwheel Apartment, Charlestown, is situated within a designated World Heritage Site and is only 500 metres from the harbour. The two-bedroomed apartment is contemporary and spacious, able to comfortably accommodate up to four people (plus an infant). The accommodation itself offers a high modern standard of comfort, has unlimited Wifi, a 43" Smart TV and a smaller Smart TV in bedroom one. There is a well equipped kitchen which includes essentials such as a dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer. The apartment is on the ground floor sheltered by its own enclosed garden, making it suitable for children, games, BBQs and just relaxing in the sunshine! There is one designated parking space in front of the apartment, in addition, there is further off street parking and on street parking available close by.

Charlestown is perfectly situated for exploring the whole of Cornwall. The world famous Eden Project is only 3 miles away. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the picturesque villages of Mevagissey and Fowey are only a 15 minute drive away. Attractions such as The Tate St Ives, the wonderful St Michael's Mount, Land's End and the National Maritime Museum are easily visited within a day. Meanwhile the family friendly, sheltered beaches of St Austell Bay are on the doorstep and the surf resort of Newquay is an uncongested 14 mile drive. The Waterwheel Apartment itself is within a 100m of the Mevagissey - St Austell - Fowey bus stops which provide a frequent service throughout the year and is less than 2 miles from the main line railway station. Charlestown is a beautiful, idyllic, unspoiled, historic port, on the south coast of Cornwall and has recently featured in the TV series Poldark. Charlestown has three pubs and several restaurants catering for a variety of tastes and pockets. For outdoor enthusiasts there are several excellent walks, including the coastal footpath, cycle routes and water sports. Bikes and kayaks can be hired locally. There is comprehensive Information Folder to help you plan your stay.
