  • Would have liked to spend more time here, but it was late when we arrived. Walked by the dock to the harbour. There appear to be several boutique type bars and restaurants 
  • Great little fishing port which is still very authentic. Lovely views & used on many TV sets including Poldark. Lovely coffee shops 
  • Very unspoilt village with lovely little shops, restaurants and harbour. Make sure you take plenty of 20p coins as no free toilets in Cornwall. Imagine it gets very busy in height of the season or whe...  read more »

  • Lovely Cornish Harbour and village and the location of many TV scenes including the Poldark series
  • This is a wonderful place to visit. I first discovered it when i had checked in at my hotel at around 4pm and wanted somewhere local to visit as I'd already done a 4 hour drive to get here. Charlestown popped up on my sat nav so off i went. The views travelling here from the A391 are beautiful and offer the first glimpse of the sea that you'll have had in years if you're a city dweller such as myself. The harbour has a couple of great pubs with accommodation, food and walks in abundance. It's a very quiet place whee i love to go and sit looking out to sea, wondering what adventures I'll have over the coming days in Cornwall. There's a path leading to the south west coastal path which goes on for miles, a museum, a few shops and best of all the parking is totally free if you don't mind a short walk down the road to the harbour. If you do then there's a pay and display right by the dock. A great place to visit to see the sea, have your first little dip and relax before exploring the rest of Cornwall. I always make a point of visiting here on my first and last night on holiday and i recommend you do too. You might even stumble upon the hidden little cave...
  • This ancient fishing port is always worth a visit. Often the site of filming for the likes of Poldark and several nautical themed films and TV shows.
  • Beautiful little harbour/village
