Charlestown is a popular Georgian harbour side village situated around a picturesque inner and outer harbour with pebble beach, some two miles from St Austell town centre. The harbour currently houses some fishing boats and several tall ships, and has been the back drop of several feature films and TV series such as Poldark, Alice in Wonderland, Doctor Who, The Three Musketeers and The Eagle Has Landed, largely due to its picturesque natural and unspoilt coastline surrounds. Charlestown has a hotel and guest houses, with excellent restaurants, and a selection of public houses. To both sides of Charlestown harbour there is the South West coastal footpath providing some wonderful walks with cliff top views and sandy coves and beaches. To the east lies the natural deep harbour port of Fowey with excellent boating facilities and with a range of excellent local shops and restaurants. Nearby is the beach of Porthpean which has its own sailing club. The Eden project is approximately 5 miles away.

From St Austell head to the Charlestown roundabout, and down the hill towards the historic port. Head past the turning to Carlyon Bay on the left hand side and carry on to the heart of the village, past the Rashleigh Arms Public House on the left. At the mini roundabout head straight across and towards the Pier House Hotel and Harbourside Inn & Restaurant. Just before Wreckers Restaurant on the right hand side and almost opposite the tall ships, turn right into Barkhouse Lane, over the pebbled cobbles and tarmac private road. The property will be situated as the road widens towards the top on the left hand side. 2 Barkhouse Lane is the second property on the left hand side. Above the car parking there is a slated stone sign with Crows Nest on it.
