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.

Highly recommend this stylish, super clean and fresh apartment. Lovely view of the coast, warm and cosy with lots of little extra touches that made this a terrific place to stay.

Y. R,

Beautifully presented and very comfortable.

Miss Ruth S,

This property surpassed all expectations. The place was lovely, so well equipped with everything imaginable- even a picnic basket with thermos. 2 parking spaces and an abundance of information on the area was provided. Also a welcome gift was a nice touch. We highly recommend this property and rate it 5 * plus.

Mrs Henrietta F,

Lovely apartment, with sea views. Well equipped, good location, clean. Would definitely recommend.

Mr Sean W,

Great apartment which is walkable to local beach and pub. Outside area perfect for a BBQ after a day splashing in the waves. Milk, wine and cakes appreciated.

Mrs Abigail Q,

Very good standard, enjoyable holiday in a convenient location.

Mr Alan J,


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.
