A beautifully unspoilt Georgian harbour town and working port, Charlestown is a captivating piece of history. The port and village of Charlestown was named after landowner and entrepreneur Charles Rashleigh. It was built between 1790 and 1810 to provide a safe, deep water facility for local fishermen, and the traders in copper ore and china clay from the mines in the nearby St. Austell area. The Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre has many exhibits detailing the seafaring history of the port. Today Charlestown is a designated World Heritage site. The harbour is Grade II listed and a prime example of a late Georgian working port and has provided permanent moorings for 3 tall ships. Although, no longer permanent, the tall ships still frequent the harbour. Popular with film directors, Charlestown has featured in many films including The Eagle has Landed, The Three Musketeers, Poldark and even Doctor Who.
A selection of craft shops and galleries are scattered throughout Charlestown.
During holiday season there are plenty of ice cream opportunities with the Tall Ships Creamery based next to the harbour and old weighbridge. Fine homemade Cornish produce – not just ice cream, fudge and sweets too.
There are lots of places to have coffee and cream teas, and many wonderful restaurants. Traditional Cornish pastys can be bought near the harbour plus fresh crab or crayfish-tail sandwiches to take down on to the beach. The Pier House Hotel and restaurant, The Rashleigh and Harbourside pubs are family friendly and serve local ale and delicious food overlooking the beautiful harbour and its ships all year round. Wreckers restaurant specialises in locally-caught fish. The Boathouse offers more relaxed dining for lunch, afternoon tea or an evening meal. Lovedays, and The Longstore are fairly recent additions to the Charlestown gastro experience.
Tesco and Asda are within approx 1.5 miles of No.26. Polkyth Leisure Centre close-by in St Austell offers an indoor pool with lots of family open times during the school holidays. Charlestown Health and Beauty salon is in the centre of Charlestown, offering a full range of Clarins treatments.

The Lost gardens of Heligan. Fowey – the home of Daphne Du Maurier. Mevagissey. 35 minutes to the North coast for surfing and body-boarding at Polzeath or Newquay.
