Topmast was excellent for the five of us on a walking holiday. The location was ideal for eating out in Charlestown with lots of choice of restaurants and pubs. It was also a good location for buses which we used on three days to get to and from our coastal footpath walks. The number of bathrooms was a real boom as there were three single adults anRead mored one couple and everyone had their own bathroom. The bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. Hide

Topmast is a lovely home, very well decorated and equipped and flows well. Thank you for the welcome pack of teabags and biscuits, they were very appreciated. We had 8 adults in our party and think it is just a tad too small for 8 adults, ok for 4 or 6 with 4 or two children. The restaurants are good in Charlestown, especially Rebellion and the RasRead morehleigh Arms. It was a good base for that part of Cornwall, and the price we paid was very reasonable for a 4 bed, ensuite house. Thank you Hide

What a fabulous home! We stayed for a week and were absolutely delighted. Tastefully decorated throughout. Lovely comfortable beds, no complaints from any of us. Great space for cooking and eating together. Location was brilliant, a short walk to the harbour and beach and a fantastic base for exploring further afield. Kids loved it. Perfection.

We enjoyed staying in this fairly new and clean house with 4 ensuite double/king rooms that suited our big family. It was in a quiet location and within walking distance to lots of restaurants and the beach in Charlestown.

We highly recommend Top Mast It was our first visit to Charlestown and it wont be our last. The property is at the top of the town in a quiet location, the walk to and from the harbour took only 10-15 minutes, we didnt find the slope a problem.

We dined at Springtide, The Boathouse & Longstore as well as HBQ by the harbour. We booked well in advance & loved them all. Hide

Two couples spent a wonderful week here. We cannot fault the house, location and facilities, in fact we have never had such a well equipped kitchen.
