Property Location


Once a market town St Austell is the central location for visiting the South East of Cornwall. With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan a 15 minute drive towards Mevagissey, and Charlestown mere minutes away it provides an ideal base for your travels. The coastal town of Fowey is a simple 20 minute drive past the China Clay port of Par, offering fabulous restaurants, galleries and gift shops. A short car ferry across the river takes you on to Polruan. Daphne du Maurier spent her later years in properties in and around Fowey, a festival of her works takes place each May.

St Austell was once the major producer of the world's China Clay, now with cheaper foreign imports the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The brewery has recently started exporting their products across the Tamar River to England, so you may just find where your favourite brew is made. To the North it is only a 20 minute drive to Newquay, These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, where as it once used to be a major export port for counties mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here, as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.

Great base for exploring Cornwall

Fairly new build cottage, close to amenities and the town. In a quiet cul-de-sac with ample on street parking. Very well laid out and cosy inside; tastefully decorated and furnished. Has a wide range of home comforts for your stay, and has all the safety features you would expect in a modern home.

On arrival greeted by a black dustbin, half full of water and a dirty nappy on the doorstep!

Cleanliness of the property left a lot to be desired. Dishes, oven tray had to be washed before we could use them, air vent in bathroom covered in dust & did not work, dead spider and screwed up receipts on floor behind bin in the bedroom. The views were stunning! Dissapointed at the lack of information, other than a stack of leaflets, on the surrounding area, walks, beaches, etc. Fortunately we were both fit so the walk into and back from St Austell did not cause us problems, but it could for someone with mobility issues, a fact omitted from cottage information when booking. Interesting reading through previous occupants feedback. Several had made mention of the lack of wifi, another fact omitted in the cottage description and expected in this day and age. It caused us problems as we were not able to research places to visit. We would have been happy to pay for this. We got the impression that the feedback was never acted upon, in which case why bother having it in the first place. I did try to contact the owner to provide him with my comments as I did not wish to leave negative feedback without giving him the option for a response, Needless to say I have heard nothing.

Bay View is a lovely cottage

Bay View is a nicely laid out property with a sweet tiered little garden. The owner is very responsive to any queries. Small but very functional kitchen, comfortable beds and tasteful decor throughout. The actual area where Bay View is in St Austell is not great as within a few minutes walking distance there are no decent pubs or restaurants. Very good base though to explore Cornwall.

our stay at Bay View

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was a bit out of the way, and we lost our way a couple of times, but soon got the hang of it. The provision of a local map would be so helpful. We found Bay View was excellent for our purpose; we needed a break, and the area was quiet, the house comfortable, and the owner most helpful when we couldnt fathom the cooker! The mattresses need updating tho' .. a little on the thin side! All told, a good value holiday property.

The property was clean and well furnished. Parking could be a problem, whilst we had no problems it was extremely tight. The property offered good value for money.

Bay View St Austell October half term

the property was ideal for what we needed in terms of facilities. Perhaps a little far from the beach and a decent pub (Rashleigh Arms in Charlestown is so amazing now) but only a short drive from Heligan, Eden Project and Newquay beaches as well as many other attractions suitable when one has two teenagers. I wonder why no holiday homes ever have an indoor clothes airer now. Rain on several days (and no apparent clothes pegs) meant that we couldn't really dry clothes outside which is a little unhelpful with no dryer especially with beach towels and wet suits. there were some minor snags but we didn't feel we could bother the owner with them. Hopefully those would have been resolved if we visited again (and we would because it is value for money). A booklet just setting out how things worked (boiler, cooker, television) and things such as which day to put the dustbins out would have been helpful. Lovely big fridge freezer however was a major bonus. As it was not half term in Cornwall we had most of the tourist places to ourselves! what a contrast to the summer. Overall a brilliant holiday and definitely recommend Bay View and Cornwalls Cottages to others

The seating was very uncofortable

The house was in a good location but people with walking difficulties would have problems. No internet connection. The cooking dishes needed washing before use as they were greasy. The cooker was difficult to operate. The Parking is limited in space and difficult to access. But in spite of this the house is in a good location for exploring Cornwall and as we had good weather we did not spend much time in the house. Never did find the DVD player though there was some disks there.

Visiting family

Clean and modern house. Fresh, modern decor. Very helpful and friendly lady at number 24. Parking is a nightmare. The allocated space is tight, especially if neighbours have parked in front of their garages. Anyone with a large car or two cars would struggle.Parking outside the house is virtually impossible as neighbours either side park in such a way that there isn't quite enough room! Beds are uncomfortable. The single beds squeaked every time you turned over and you could feel the springs. The dining area is lovely & fresh but the sofa & chairs are not comfy. Nice outdoor dining area if weather permits. The TV was a bizarre & turned itself on during the night. A bit more info would be useful - how to use induction hob, day of rubbish collection etc. The bathroom is nicely decorated and family friendly but beware the shower mat - it's slippery. Would have liked larger towels - if you like a bath size towel - take your own. The view of St Austell Bay is great. The house is in a good location for central Cornwall. As former St Austell residents we were only here to visit family so not really doing the tourist bits. Would we stay here again? I don't think so - just the parking issue is enough to put us off.

Excellent property, poor warning of parking limitations

I would recommend this property to adults who have one car which is of average size. Warning of problem with parking needed in advert. Lovely property, good decor, great location for touring. Area not really ideal for dog walking but par beach not far away. Only thing which would put me off booking again was parking problem and lack of information about which bits of the road "belonged" to neighbours. (We were woken by one at 7 am Sunday with a complaint)

Bay View, St Austell

Very nice cottage within good distances from lots of holiday locations including Eden Project. Very peaceful, good neighbours and parking. Weather was wet and damp so could have done with some indoor drying facilities as it was difficult to dry laundry - just a small drying rack would sufficed. We did not understand how to use the cooker hob and eventually contacted the owner who very kindly helped us out. Maybe some advice could be left for future people who, like me, are no always familiar with these devices.

Bay View lived up to it's name

Spectacular views over the bay from the back of the property and the decking. The property and location provided a good base to see a lot of Cornwall. The Property is dog friendly and we were amazed at the number of places in Cornwall that we could visit with our dog too. The property's fridge had a fault while we were there, the owner was easy to contact and dealt with the problem straight away. We really enjoyed our stay.

Comfortable house for self catering stay

Had a good stay here. Pros: comfortable accommodation, nicely furnished, clean and well maintained. Good town location for exploring mid Cornwall. Cons: no house instructions to explain things like how the rubbish collection works. The tv appears to only have channel 45 & 80 and switches itself on in the middle of the night! The bottom stair is dangerous and we both tripped down it more than once. Parking is a total nightmare - allocated space is tricky to get in and out of but road is congested. That said, I think the owner has done a nice job on it as a rental property, just a couple of things need looking at to improve.

review

a good base for visiting all the places we love in Cornwall. Modern clean and tidy with a nice area to sit out. Great views. Parking was the only really issue as the street is very compacted and with a family car as we have, the designated parking space was in an awkward position to get in to.

Our Stay at Bay View July 2014

It mentioned 10 minutes from shops and pubs, this should be clarified as 10 minutes drive to the shops and pubs ! Although there was a Tesco's express at bottom of hill few minutes walk away. The allocated parking down side of property it very difficult to access in and out, as other people parking in that area leave cars outside of their garages and therefore very restricted movement. Lovely views over St. Austell Bay. As we were two Ladies staying in property we used the two rooms. I would suggest the single bedded room is only suitable for children as bed was very uncomfortable. It would have been nice to have a long mirror somewhere for dressing. Door mat would have been useful to wipe feet when in and out. Very accessible for visiting Eden Project and other areas in Cornwall.
