The Waterwheel Apartment -
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Waterwheel Apartment is a stylish property situated within the World Heritage site of Charlestown, an idyllic, unspoiled, historic port.
Internally the apartment has been furnished to a high standard benefiting from Wi-Fi internet access for those seeking a working holiday or just relaxation and entertainment. Externally The Waterwheel Apartment boasts an enclosed garden. Well located, the centre of Charlestown is just 500m from the apartment. Another bonus is the regular St Austell/Fowey bus which passes within 50 meters, so you can easily get by without a car.
Relatively untouched by development, Charlestown has often been used as a location for films and TV productions such as Dr Who, Poldark and The Three Musketeers. The harbour looks particularly splendid with numerous tall ships moored in port. Charlestown has several pubs and restaurants to enjoy, as well as a heritage centre. The shops are characterful and interesting. The community is vibrant, participating in regular events such as gig rowing races and water based activities in the harbour. Regatta week is a particular joy.
There are two beautiful pebbly beaches with safe swimming, rock pools and caves. Also there are many superb sandy beaches within easy reach. Within walking distance is Porthpean Beach, a great family friendly beach and sailing centre. For those interested in golf, there are three golf courses within 3 miles.
The Cornwall Coastal Path is on the doorstep. A detailed booklet containing recommended all season walks, cycle and kayaking routes provided in the apartment for your convenience. Many start and finish from the Waterwheel Apartment.
St Austell, just over a mile away, is a market town with larger shops and facilities. The world-famous Eden Project is less than 5 miles from The Waterwheel apartment and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are 8 miles away. There are plenty of other attractions within easy reach, from National Trust properties to children's theme parks.
After a day out, you'll be happy to head back to relax in the comfort of The Waterwheel Apartment where DVDs, games and books have been provided.

The largest town in Cornwall, St. Austell is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Boasting a number of top attractions, such as the unique botanical gardens The Eden Project, an interesting brewery tour of St. Austell Breweries (with samples!) and an historical look at the china clay heritage of the town in the Wheal Martyn China Clay Heritage Centre, there is certainly plenty to see and do.
There are a number of great pubs selling great pub grub and a fine selection of St. Austell Breweries ales, shopping options galore in the newly redeveloped White River Place in the town centre and a fine assortment of beaches to enjoy a last day on the sand. The Clay Trail is a great way of exploring the history of the town, which dates back to the middle ages, via the stunning coastal and countryside views.
