About the neighbourhood
St Austell is the largest town in Cornwall with a number of top attraction. These include the world famous Eden Project, St Austell brewery for tours and samples, and the Clay history. A great way of exploring the history of St Austell is following the Clay Trail via stunning coastal and countryside views. The Wheal Martyn Heritage centre is a good place to start. St Austell has a good number of pubs and restaurants selling fine ales and beers, shopping options include the town centre White River Place, and the St Austell bay beaches which offer a fine selection of activities, places to eat and drink. There is a bowling alley and multi screen cinema in the town, 10 minutes walk from the house. There are 5 golf courses + 11 beaches nearby.
Getting around
The house is very close to good local bus routes and the town of St Austell is on the main Penzance to Paddington train line. Flying into Newquay is a good option, and car hire and taxis are available locally. The town of St Austell is 10 minutes away down a hill. The bus can bring you back ! There are also good reliable taxis whose numbers are in the information pack at the house. Kate id more than happy to assist with travel arrangements. Getting around by car is the most convenient way to travel around Cornwall.
