Both St. Austell and Truro have mainline rail connections to London Paddington whilst on the north coast is Newquay Airport with a number of scheduled flights to both domestic and international destinations.

The views enjoyed by the property and its garden are wonderful, encompassing the historic harbour, beach, miles of coastline and vast expanses of St Austell Bay.
This former Coastguard Cottage has been improved in the last 18 months with work that includes a replacement roof and power shower. The comfortable accommodation includes a spacious kitchen/dining room and cosy sitting room with woodburning stove and fabulous views. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
