Charlestown

We loved Charlestown and visited several times as it was close by and had some lovely places to eat.  The main attraction of the village centres around the harbour and old port which has remained unchanged for hundreds of years and is home to several beautiful wooden tall ships.  Several films have used the ships and the harbour for location filming.  The port was used in days gone by to transport China Clay from the mines around St Austell.

You really do feel like you have stepped back in time.

 It has a pretty little beach too and many gorgeous cottages.






If you ever get chance to visit - do.

It looks wonderful. There's still many unspoilt places in Britain.
