In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Just 30 yards from St Austell’s beach, this property is perfectly situated to enjoy the many attractions this area has to offer.

From this holiday property and garden, you feel as though you could dip your finger into the crystal clear waters of St Austell Bay. There is a sun porch within the property that boasts spectacular views towards the sea and harbour. This former coastguard cottage above the harbour is perfect for whiling away the hours in this stunning village, a World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Charlestown, so named after the landowner that built the village, is home to its very own tall ships, and is often used as a film and TV set due to its traditional buildings and old world charm. There is also a shipwreck museum with Titanic relics. There are many cafés and bars, local pubs and bistros selling local food and drink, and many pavement cafés around the harbour area. Cliff walks, deep sea fishing, cycling and golf can all be found nearby. The area surrounding the village has many National Trust and private gardens, and tourist attractions for all. The sea faring town of Fowey, with its Royal Regatta and literary festival, is easily reached. The Eden Project, so close you could cycle there (you can get a discount for this), the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the stunning Pine Lodge gardens are all close to Harbour Watch. Beach 30 yards. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    This cottage is idyllic. We stayed here to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The view of the sun rising over the sea from the bedroom is something else. Hearing the waves crashing as you fall asleep.... We have never stayed anywhere quite so beautiful. The cottage is very warm & comfortable. You are greeted with a welcome tray. Sheets & towels all provided. Lovely walks along the coast (be careful if walking the coastal walk out of the cottage to the right- half way along plastic matting has been sunk into the ground & was very slippy causing a nasty fall) Lots of places to visit nearby, making it an ideal base- if you can tear yourself away from the spectacular view. Would love to return- highly recommended.

    Beautiful location! Waking up to that view every day was wonderful, and being able to sit out on the terrace watching the sea and the world go by was bliss. We were left some jam and scones on arrival, which was very nice. The cottage has most things you need. Rooms are both doubles, so be aware if you have children. Generally very clean. Not luxurious but you are paying for the view.

    We spent a lovely week at Harbour Watch. It is much more spacious than it looks in the photos and the views are wonderful. It is well equipped too, there is everything you need in the kitchen except perhaps a dishwasher. The sofas are soft and cosy and the woodburner nice on chilly evenings. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable too. You can go to sleep listening to the waves and wake up watching them - bliss! My only criticism is the lack of soap in the bathroom and en-suite.
