Blue Haven is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a holiday home that caters for all the family’s needs in comfortable and modern surroundings. Comprising the main house and an annex with separate entrance it is perfect for families. Sit and relax in the rear garden with its raised patio, or take advantage of what the beautiful south coast of Cornwall has to offer. Carlyon Bay and the local beach is just 0. 8 miles away or a 10 minute walk, and is 2 miles long. During the summer you’ll also find a beach bar and food shacks. Other beaches nearby include Porthpean with its gorgeous cliff backdrop, Duporth and Pentewan. The world famous Eden Project is just over 3 miles away, with its magnificent biomes and is certainly a great attraction for visitors. It also hosts concerts and themed events throughout the year to keep children and adults entertained. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is also well worth a visit. Set in 200 acres of garden history that were once lost under brambles, they have been restored to their former glory. You can explore the gardens and the estate in your own time and really appreciate Heligan as one of the finest gardens in England.
St Austell’s port is the lovely Charlestown Harbour which can also be reached from the coastal path, and is in walking distance. This unspoilt, historic, original Grade II listed harbour has been used as a location for the TV show Poldark, as well as many films and TV shows. You will frequently see old sailing boats and tall ships coming in and out of the harbour. After a busy day, perhaps sample a Cornish Real Ale from one of the many bars and restaurants in the area. St Austell also has ample shops, cinema, bowling alley, swimming pool and other leisure activities. Within easy reach from St Austell are the old fishing ports of Fowey and Mevagissey. Made famous by the writer Daphne Du Maurier, with its literary events and the wonderful Fowey Regatta every August, Fowey has plenty to do for everyone. You can take a boat trip up the River Fowey, go fishing or pop across the water to explore Polruan and the ’Hall Walk’, which gives you the most stunning views over the Fowey Estuary. Boat trips to Mevagissey are available in the summer season where you can explore the working harbour and narrow cobbled streets.
