Property Location

Little Avallen has a superb location in Carlyon Bay with Charlestown, Pentewan and Mevagissey to the west, St Austell to the north and Fowey to the east.

Having largely resisted the modernisation and commercialisation of some other popular destinations, Charlestown has held onto its unique, quintessential Cornish charm. For this reason, it has been a popular backdrop to many film and television projects, including Poldark, Dr Who and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Steeped in history, no visit would be complete without a trip to the Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre, which exhibits a fascinating array of artefacts, stories and information about the village and its maritime history. Aside from the museum, Charlestown also has a couple of art galleries, a harbourside pub boasting excellent views, a small sandy beach, and many small shops to browse your way through. Once a year, the village holds its annual Regatta: a week-long event featuring watersports, games, sports competitions and a carnival, all to raise money for the village. With plenty to while away an enjoyable day, Charlestown is well worth a visit.

St Austell was once the major producer of the world's China Clay. Now with cheaper 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 its products across the Tamar River to England, so you may find where your favourite brew is made.

Fowey (pronounced Foy) is one of the most iconic places in Cornwall. Set on the steep banks on the Fowey Estuary, the narrow streets and alleys are just great to explore. Views of the harbour are dramatic. Just watching the activities in the harbour can keep you occupied for many hours! Life in Fowey revolves around the water. The local fishing fleet land the freshest catches, and local specialities include mussels, oysters, clams, crab & lobster. There are some great restaurants and pubs around and nearby. Life on the water culminates in the middle of August with the Fowey Regatta Week, where yacht racing takes place all week. Watch the historic Falmouth Working Boats racing in the close confines of the estuary, or enjoy the many festivities around the town.

Pentewan (just north of Mevagissey) has an industrial past that is still evident today. It was once a busy harbour built by a local mine owner for shipping china clay. Inland is the Pentewan Valley Trail which is 4km of woodland and riverside walking following an old gauge railway to the village of London Apprentice. The village also has a small, friendly pub with tables on the old harbourside. There is a wonderful sandy beach which is ideal for families.

The town of Mevagissey is just a 15-minute drive away. Mevagissey is a wonderful little Cornish fishing village in South East Cornwall. The tiny seaside village is packed with old Cornish cottages complete with narrow alleyways leading to converted fish cellars offering gift shops, galleries, pubs and cafes. Once a major Pilchard port, now the harbour boasts a smaller fleet, many of which provide sea tours or boat trips to Fowey situated further up the South coast. The harbour provides an ideal backdrop for a fish and chips supper, followed by a stroll through the town at dusk.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are within an easy drive, and so this is an excellent location for the keen gardener. Nearby Gorran Haven offers an alternative day out. You can continue south along the coast down to Caerhays Castle and Porthluney Cove. Cliff walks in all directions along the coast offer spectacular views out across the St Austell Bay, with the coastal path only a few minutes walk away.
