The words 'peace' and 'tranquillity' go a long way to summing up the attraction of southern Cornwall for most holidaymakers, and Charlestown offers both by the bagful. Situated a short distance outside of the better-known town of St. Austell, Charlestown offers visitors an opportunity to sample the best of the county. In addition to the village's quiet charm, visitors can expect to find stunning natural landscapes, rich histories and friendly locals. The broad selection of fine hotels in the area means that visiting couldn't be easier.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest attractions in Charlestown is the harbour. Developed as a fishing village in the 18th Century, the harbour has always been central to life in Charlestown. The separate inner and outer harbours are particularly interesting. The unique inner harbour has its water level maintained by a 7-mile system of manmade waterways, ending in a pair of reservoirs to the North of Charleston.
In the 18th Century, Charlestown Harbour would have been packed with both ships and industry. Today, the village captures a far quieter scene. A number of beautiful and historical ships are still kept in the harbour waters, adding to the atmosphere for visitors.
The south of the county houses many of the best hotels in Cornwall, which is great news for holidaymakers who are keen to visit Charlestown or nearby St. Austell.
The Rashleigh Arms sits in Charlestown itself. The traditional Inn offers an intimate setting, where guests can enjoy a private bathroom, free parking and an on-site bar and lounge area.
Not far along the coast, the grand Boscundle Manor offers a taste of luxury. The picturesque building is surrounded by stunning gardens and beautiful countryside. As well as offering easy access to many of the county's premier attractions such as the Eden Project and, of course, Charlestown Harbour, the guest house also boasts some great in-house facilities, such as an indoor swimming pool.
Charlestown is a very peaceful place, but those seeking something a little more lively can head into nearby St. Austell. The town's home to plenty of great independent shops, bars and restaurants, making it an ideal spot for an afternoon stroll. There's also a well-known brewery and even a local football team.
