Further details

No smoking in the building. Smoke detectors are mains served. The multie occupancy building conforms to all health and safety and fire regulations. This property is in a split level building, therefore it is ground floor from the rear of the building [from car park], but is on the 3rd floor at the front of the building.

The West Country region

The region around St. Austell is predominatly man made landscape. This is due to the mining of china clay for many years. Consequently there are many lakes, big hills and clay trails, and then turned into area's of great interest [The Eden Project] and are a haven for nature. The trails provide great walks [with or without a dog], fantastic cycle tracks, and many fishing lakes. The bay has many fabulous beaches, some of which have restaurants/cafe's/pub's on the beach. Par beach is a all year round dog walking beach and has sand dunes and a nature reserve.

This is a haven for all types of birds. Polkerris beach has a watersports area, where you can learn to sail, ski, windsurf and jet ski. Charlestown is a world heritage site and has tall ships in the harbour. This area is often used for filming major feature films, and t.v. programmes. You can also take a powerboat course. There is nothing in the world as great as a hour or so mackrel fishing out of Mevagissey, then eating freshly cooked fish and chips, whilst watching the goings on of this working harbour.

Take a trip to Fowey on the ferry to wander round this ancient, famous town and see the yacht's, art galleries and fabulous houses. Garden lovers are spoilt for choice with The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah just a short drive away. Generally the weather is warmer than many other parts of the u.k. There are many National Trust properties throughout Cornwall. The historic city of Truro is 14 miles away.

St Austell

Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown, Mevagissey, Fowey, Polkerris, Menabilly beach, Lanhydrock, St. Austell brewery, The China Clay museum. There are numerous festivals throughout the year, eg.. Daphne de'Maurier festival, Mevagissey feast week, Fowey regatta, Beer festival and local fairs and carnivals. There are many childrens activity centers, suitable for all ages of children.

The largest inside market in the U.K. is less than 2 miles [Saturday and Sunday]. Many fantastic beaches.
