About the home
Our beautiful, granite fronted, self catering cottage has been designed to blend with the charming surroundings of the historic port of Charlestown. The cottage is one of a small group of seven cottages based around a central courtyard. It is 100 yards from Charlestown harbour and Charlestown's two beaches which are recommended by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) for their excellent water quality and has European designated bathing water.
Pebbledrift Cottage is a well crafted and carefully thought out holiday home. Downstairs you will find two large, comfortable, bright bedrooms and a well appointed bathroom. Upstairs you will find a bright, spacious living area, with clearly defined kitchen and dining areas, as well as a breakfast bar which is great for lounging around with your morning coffee and paper. We have a wireless Internet connection for guests' use as well as the Sky TV Entertainment pack. Up to six people may be accommodated.
Children are welcome, but please be advised that we have a low level window and open staircase in the first floor living room.
Regretfully, we cannot accommodate pets. There is one dedicated off road parking space and unrestricted parking on the road

The West Country / Cornwall region
The South Cornwall length of coast is relatively sheltered, being either south-east or south facing and being largely in the lee of the large peninsula of the Lizard. Cliffs of moderate height are found along most of the length, and there are numerous intimate little bays and some quite prominent headlands.
In the eastern half of the length the coast is cut by wooded river valleys, at Fowey, Looe and Seaton. In the centre is the major feature of St Austell Bay, the only part that lacks the otherwise ubiquitous cliffs. This bay also has the only major length of coastal development in South Cornwall, based on the town of St Austell and its extensions. Elsewhere, small ancient fishing ports such as Mevagissey, Fowey and Looe are scattered along the coast, all of them very picturesque. Major estuaries, of the Fal and Tamar, mark the two ends, each of them of great historic maritime importance.
The St Austell / Charlestown, St Austell area
There will be no need to get the car out to find somewhere to good to eat, as within easy walking distance of the cottage there are two pubs which serve food and excellent local ales, as well as a restaurant which specialises in locally caught fish. 'Charlie's' accross the road serves breakfasts, light meals and cream teas. You can buy delicious pasties at the local kiosk and locally made ice creams.
There are craft shops, a gift shop and a gallery too. There is also a fascinating Shipwreck and Heritage Centre.
The coast path can be picked up in Charlestown. This offers some of the County's most spectacular view points.
Golfers are very well catered for too - Carlyon Bay golf course , Porthpean golf course and St Austell golf course are all just minutes away.
There is a sailing club at Porthpean, the next village along and, of course there is no shortage of beautiful beaches all within a short driving distance.
The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short drive away, as are the towns of Mevagissey and Fowey.
St Austell, just a couple of minutes by car, has all local town amenities, including two 24 hour supermarkets.
Slightly futher away but still under an hour by car, are Padstow with Rick Stein's restaurants and Jamie Oliver's '15' in Newquay.

I found this cottage using Trip Advisor. We stayed here for one week having visited the area in the past.
Pebbledrift is a really nice cozy home from home and it gadgets everything we needed so much so that we didn't want to leave it to go out exploring Cornwall !
I can recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay that has easy access to a large part of Cornwall.
Thank you for your complimentary review. We try to ensure that Pebbledrift Cottage is a place where people can relax and enjoy their stay in Charlestown, Cornwall while being able to explore the County easily. It seems from your review that we are succeeding.

We have just returned from a lovely week at Pebbledrift. It is in an excellent location - being just some 50 metres or so from the beach. Down on the quayside was a lovely old tall ship and between the beach and the Cottage, there are 3 good pubs/restaurants to choose from.
The Cottage is in a peaceful location and is very well equipped - with Sky+ TV, we managed to record the Olympics and watch them when we arrived back at night..
Charlestown is a lovely village and is an excellent location to explore the rest of Cornwall from - a jousting festival at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, The Minack Theatre near Lands End, Go-Karting near Newquay, a murder mystery evening at the Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway, and then for us adults an evening at Rick Stein's Restaurant in Padstow - something for us all.
We highly recommend this Cottage to enjoy your holiday from and we will return.
Many thanks for an excellent review. We are delighted you had such a good time in Pebbledrift Cottage and would be very pleased to see you again
