Olivia's Cottage, Charlestown, Cornwall
Sea Views, South-facing slate garden
Olivia’s Cottage is a pretty stone house, snuggled on the end of a Georgian terrace looking out over Charlestown's historic harbour. The expansive blue sea stretches across the horizon and you can stroll down to the quay and its shouldering beaches in just minutes. Inside, the cottage is tastefully decorated, with crisp white walls and comfy blue-grey sofas that are perfect for sinking into after a day spent surfing or combing the local beaches.
Olivia’s Cottage focuses on simplicity and cosiness, using the softest duvets, pillows and towels available, but is also equipped with all the modern appliances you might need for a comfortable stay. The two bedrooms have king and double beds and are carefully furnished with rustic and antique flourishes. There is a stylish, south-facing slate garden with an outdoor table, bordered with pops of greenery for a gentle sunrise breakfast.
Like all of Antonia's Pearls, Olivia's Cottage is ideally located for visiting Charlestown's nearby cafés and sandy beaches. But on stormy nights, the oak floored sitting room is a cosy bolthole to enjoy a supper inside, warmed by the wood burner.
