About the neighbourhood
The cottage is 20 minutes from Westport. We are semi rural. Back in 1880 the area was once a gold mine. The Charleston locals are very friendly, resourceful and adventurous. You can access the beach privately you have your own private parking. The Blue Penguins are only minutes away. There are some amazing interesting walks. We also have underground tours, rafting and a local goldmine. We also have a very nice cafe and a pizzeria.
