Meanwhile the family friendly, sheltered beaches of St Austell Bay are on the doorstep and the surf resort of Newquay is an uncongested 14 mile drive. The Waterwheel Apartment itself is within a 100m of the Mevagissey - St Austell - Fowey bus stops which provide a frequent service throughout the year and is less than 2 miles from the main line railway station. Charlestown is a beautiful, idyllic, unspoiled, historic port, on the south coast of Cornwall and has recently featured in the TV series Poldark. Charlestown has three pubs and several restaurants catering for a variety of tastes and pockets. For outdoor enthusiasts there are several excellent walks, including the coastal footpath, cycle routes and water sports. Bikes and kayaks can be hired locally.

About the neighbourhood
Charlestown is an idyllic harbourside village with its tall ships, pebbled beaches and numerous eating places. Visit The Shipwreck Centre to learn about the fascinating local history or potter around the numerous gift shops. There are two 24-hour supermarkets within a mile of the apartment and the mainline railway station in St Austell has good connections within Cornwall.
Getting around
If you have a car you can access anywhere at all in Cornwall. If you wish to stay without the use of a car the bus stop is just across the road from the apartment and an up to date time table is in the apartment. St Austell Station is approximately a mile and half away. For more information search First Great Western.
