Perks for the Parents

This bijou apartment just off the quay in Charlestown is ideally set up for a seaside vacation with a baby or toddler, and has plenty of treats for parents. The bedroom has a kingsize bed; there is also a sofa, digital TV with DVD, iPod dock and WiFi. A unique Georgian building on the quay is available to guests for a private candlelit dinner. The thoughtful owners, Antonia and David, can help with everything from babysitters to home-cooked meals and an in-home spa experience. Luxurious touches include White Company linens and blankets. It can also be booked in combination with other Quay Road properties to offer flexibility and accommodation for a nanny or friends.

Why Kids Love it

It is particularly well kitted out for babies and toddlers, with provisions including socket covers, baby monitor, sterilizer, change mat, stair gates, Trip Trapp high chair, JoJo Maman Bebe play mats, travel crib, dinnerware, potty, McLaren single stroller, baby bath and a food blender. Nearby activities are family-oriented: there are 2 beaches in Charlestown, plus ice cream shops, a small museum and boats in the harbor. The Eden Project, Cornwall’s most-visited family attraction, is just a short drive away. When it is sunny, you can put the play mat under the huge sail, listen to the sound of the sea and relax in the garden.

Style Notes

White and with a historical seaside air. Bedrooms are made up with crisp white bedding and to hotel standard. Decor gives a nod to Georgian Charlestown, with a heavy gilded mirror in the bathroom and a naval map and oil paintings on the wall, alongside black and white photography. We love the simplicity and clever use of space.
