Set in a coastal village within 3 miles of Fowey, and with far-reaching sea views overlooking St Austell Bay, Stena Gwyn is a modern and welcoming first-floor holiday apartment. With its contemporary, stylish interior finished to a high specification with oak doors, oak flooring and underfloor heating throughout, it provides a perfect base to explore the surrounding coastline of the Cornish Riviera. On entering the apartment you are struck by the sense of quality and comfort and and the large floor to ceiling window will entice you over to take in the views. The hidden garden to the rear is a lovely oasis of calm with twinkling lights and sun loungers to relax on. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms Stena Gwyn is ideal for a small family or friends holidaying together. 

Stena Gwyn stands in an elevated position on the hillside and being just a short distance from the village centre, local eateries and shops are within easy reach. Par Sands beach, with its long expanse of firm sands backed by dunes, parking and on-hand facilities, is popular with families and a 10 minute drive will take you to the pretty Georgian harbour of Charlestown, renowned for featuring in the recent Poldark series. A short drive will take you to the quaint fishing port of Mevagissey with its range of gift shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants. From here you can catch a ferry to Fowey or take a fishing trip from the harbour. Be sure also to pay a visit to the famous Eden Project nearby.

Local Area

St Austell is located near a stretch of coastline that is often referred to as the Cornish Riviera. The South coast of Cornwall is generally more sheltered than the wild and windswept North, and there are some excellent beaches in this area. As well as Carlyon Bay, there is also Pentewan Sands, further south, and Par beach (which is dog-friendly all year round) to the north-west.  The area is very handy for both the Eden Project (excellent for families with its interactive and educational displays) and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, rediscovered some 25 years ago and now restored to their former glory. The Lost Gardens are another family-friendly attraction, with a cafe, picnic area and lots of animals to see, and they also welcome dogs on leads. Carlyon Bay nestles in between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is also close to Charlestown, a historic port which has often been used as a location for filming several TV dramas including the recent adaptation of Poldark. Venture East along the coast and you will find the towns of Looe, Polperro and Fowey, and if you head West you can visit Mevagissey. A little way inland, St Austell has plenty of shops, pubs and a cinema complex.


It was nice to have fresh milk and a bottle of wine as a welcome. Also very good to have all the bits and pieces needed in a kitchen (cling film, foil, salt and pepper, herbs and spices etc). Great view and nice and warm for a late holiday.Jim Mullany - 6th November 2018
Lovely accommodation, thank you for all the little extras! - 1st June 2018
Wow, what a lovely apartment. We couldn't have asked for more of a home from home. It's just the little things that made it. The welcome gift was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Alexander Family - 26th May 2018

Great place to escape to, thank you for the perfect quiet retreat. Hopefully we can come back. Em & Jordan - 6th November 2017
Wonderful apartment, had a great time here. Very clean and well equipped. Pam & Dave - 9th October 2017
The property we stayed in was excellent in every way. It was modern and furnished to an exceptional and high standard. Everything was so clean, it was actually better than staying in a 5 star hotel. The view from the apartment is excellent and a fabulous way to relax and unwind after a long day out. You can actually walk to the beach from the apartment in about 6 to 7 minutes.Miss P Shah - 2nd October 2017
