olivias belongs to olivia blossom.
she has holidayed at our houses since she was a baby,
and then her mummy and daddy asked us to turn the
cottage they bought in charlestown into a pearl.
olivias is on the top deck, over looking charlestown
harbour, out to sea, and it is an absolute beauty.
olivias is a little cottage at the end of a georgian terrace
in charlestown, 100 yards from the sea ... we have
decorated it to the exquisitely high standards you would
expect from us, antonia and david.
olivias sleeps 4 in maritime bliss.
built in the late 1700s, the tiny harbour village of
charlestown is largely unchanged and has been granted
UNESCO world heritage status.
the beaches, either side of the quay, are so close a
toddler can make it. it is an easy stroll over the quay's
lock gate to the restaurant, the pub, the wine bar, the deli,
the cafe, the museum, the antiques shop and it is
a 10 minute walk to the supermarket.
or you might like to stay at home in your lovingly planted
south facing garden and have some great grub delivered.
charlestown is approximately 10 minutes from both the
eden project and the lost gardens of heligan. it is also
ideally situated for visiting the maritime museum
in falmouth, the tate at st ives, and of course, padstow.
the airport at newquay and our closest surfing beach,
watergate bay, are both a 20 minute drive and it is
a 10 minute drive from the main line train station.
there are two bedrooms, a king and a double. both
bedrooms have style, comfort and attention to detail.
the sheets are the most fabulous egyptian cotton percale.
the duvet, pillows and towels are the softest you can find.
the slate floored kitchen has all the modern appliances
you would expect, ceramic hob, electric oven, fridge,
microwave, dishwasher, WiFi and landline phone and
hopefully everything else you might need. the washing
machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board are in the
laundry cupboard in the extension.
dine in cosy candlelight at the table in the sitting room,
warmed by the wood burner and catch the sun rising
with an alfresco breakfast in the front garden.
the oak floored sitting room has a pair of sofas beside
the wood burner. the television is smart
and there is a digital radio/CD.
the bathroom is in the modern extension, so it seemed
appropriate to kit it out appropriately, with a bath and a
shower and the softest towels to
wrap up in after a good long soak.
there are all sorts of things you might like to use if you
are bringing preschool kids to olivias such as a buggy,
socket covers, anti door slammers, a baby monitor,
a steriliser, a changing mat, stair gates, a high chair,
a play mat, a travel cot with sheets and waterproof
mattress protectors, plates and bowls, tumblers, knives,
forks and spoons, a potty, a baby bath
and a hand held food whizzer.
we do not allow animals, nor smoking.
parking is easy and free.
if you would like to bring friends, parents or parents in
law, but want to give them ( and you ! ) a bit of space,
the studio is available for short stays all year round
and is just down the road.
our cottages are wonderfully close to each other
but not so close you can't breathe
and we can sleep up to 24.
do let us know if you'd like some great grub when
you arrive, during your holiday or the night you leave, and
maybe a brilliant breakfast box for your first morning
or every morning?
if you'd like our wonderful therapist to visit for some
spa at home just send us an email.
