Seasalt located in an award winning building, looking seaward just 50 metres from the harbour in the vibrant village of Charlestown - one of the most fascinating places in Cornwall. Today, recently designated a World Heritage Site, the Grade II listed harbour is a unique example of a late Georgian working port and provides a permanent berth for three tall ships.
A truly magnificent holiday home that literally oozes quality and sophistication. The Smokehouse development has only recently been completed and commands wonderful views of the sea and the splendid masts and square sails of the tall ships the Kaskelot and the Earl of Pembroke. Today the village of Charlestown remains relatively unscathed and retains bucket loads of character and charm. Two galleries, craft shops, restaurants, two pubs, two ice cream shops, coffee shop and Heritage Centre and not forgetting the two beaches await you just outside your door all add up to make this a truly remarkable place to stay.
The ground floor has natural limestone floors with underfloor heating. The sympathetic treatment to retain period features whilst producing a comfortable and easily-run home, utilizes the best of today's interior design practice and materials. Shaker style cream kitchen with polished black Granite work tops. Electric oven, gas hob with extractor hood, integral appliances: fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Extendable dining table - shabby chic in style. 32in flat screen TV with Sky package. Enormous Tetrad sofa and armchair scattered with feather filled cushions.

Come and let the magic of the Seasalt wash over you - be it paddling or swimming from the nearby beaches, gazing at the haunting beauty of the Tall Ships, fishing from the harbour wall or sitting silently in the garden and enjoying the peace and quiet and "get away from it all" atmosphere. This truly is a special place - the memory of which will remain with you for many years to come.
