This quaint cottage, centrally located in the harbour village of Charlestown is an ideal base to explore this historic area.

With a quiet private drive, in the middle of Charlestown with a peaceful garden, is the setting for this quaint holiday cottage, set within a World Heritage Site. The village of Charlestown is home to tall sailing ships moored in the harbour and the regular location for many TV and film sets including Poldark. It is a bustling village with great local pubs, cafes, galleries and restaurants, as well as a harbour and sandy beach. A shipwreck museum with a collection of artefacts from Titanic is always popular. The South West Coastal Path provides stunning views and skirts the village along the beach and the dramatic cliffs. There are many National Trust houses and private gardens nearby, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the renowned Eden Project are a must for all. There are many activities available nearby from deep sea fishing to kayaking and the latest water based craze of stand up paddle boarding. There are 2 golf courses within 1 mile and cycling, swimming and surfing on the nearby north coast. There are many local beaches to enjoy that all important English seaside holiday such as Porthpean, Carlyon Bay and Polkerris, with many of them having beach bars and cafes and often live music. Enjoy dinner looking out to sea whilst listening to local artists. A short drive will bring you to Fowey, Lostwithiel, Newquay, Padstow and the north coast, a mecca for surfing and a completely different coastline for you to explore.

    Beautiful cottage was very clean and comfortable, not suitable for disabled person, due to stairs, high sided bath and high 4 poster. Lovely quiet location with parking. Kitchen was a lovely size however could have been improved with more cooking dishes, etc, I enjoy cooking when on holiday as my time is restricted at home due to work commitments. Would be happy to stay again.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Glad you enjoyed your stay at Lily Cottage, I have supplied extra baking/casserole dishes and am sorry that you felt the cottage rated a low score.

    Lilly cottage is ideally situated, minutes from Charlestown harbour. Sarah the owner of lilly cottage is available to contact should you have any queries, a lovely friendly and approachable person but not intrusive. A welcome tray of tea and biscuits plus freash flowers was really appreciated after a long journey. Keep doing what your doing Sarah! 5 🌟

    The cottage is lovely and a great location and a perfect base for a holiday. The garden is secure for the dogs. The house was well decorated and equipped. The one issue we had was the mattress in the double room, it was not at all comfortable and we struggled getting any sleep for the week and came away from holiday very tired this may of been us so I would rather this is seen as a observation rather than a complaint. It was nice to have milk in the fridge on arrival as we forgot to stop and get any and the biscuits left were lovely. We would stay again if the mattress was better quality, When we find a nice holiday let we do tend to go back again and again but will wait and see on this occasion.The owner on the phone was very friendly and nice and we could of rang about the mattress but we were on holiday and not there to complain.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry you found the mattress to be uncomfortable; I spoke with a Dreams bed representative who recommended a memory foam mattress to please the majority of people. Although I haven’t received a complaint before about the mattress, I will replace the mattress (9 Sept 18) with a Forty Winks memory foam mattress which I found to be most comfortable. The existing mattress was a good quality one, Silent Night as I recall, and only 3 years old and I am told that they should be replaced every 8 years so not past its sell by date. If you had contacted me during your stay with this complaint I could have bought a mattress topper over the counter and am sorry you did not sleep during your stay.

    This is a lovely holiday home in a great location. Perfect accommodation for a family of 4 with a pleasant garden and very friendly neighbours. Short walk into the centre of Chalestown with its great selection of restaurants. Highly recommend Wreckers for great food.
