I was born and grew up in Cornwall and live nearby with my husband+ three children. Listing 15+ years with Visit Cornwall, TripAdvisor and Cornwalls We welcome many returning guests and hope you will love the location too. I can help with info re local events, transport,etc and an easy check in
Great location lovley village! House and garden are fine. No wi-fi which should be standard nowadays. Shower cubicle leaked a little water and the carpets are average. Nice place
The landlady was always available by mail and very nice.
The house is quiet and only a few minutes from the sea. Good starting point for excursions.
The location of the house was perfect as walking down to the harbour was amazing.
Very comfortable accommodation in tranquil setting. The house had everything we needed although you are required to take your own bedlinen. Kitchen fully equipped, comfortable beds and living areas. We could have done with wifi but this didn't ruin the holiday. The short walk to the harbour was lovely and with a range of large supermarkets nearby, you don't need to travel far for anything. Would definitely recommend for a family holiday. Some excellent walking on the doorstep too.
Thankyou for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again
“Lovely holiday home - perfect for our family holiday.”
Myself , my partner , children and dog enjoyed our stay in this lovely property. Perfect for a family. Charlestown is stunning. Shops are all near.....we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend!
“Superb location, excellent facilities”
We stayed at Appletree House for a week whilst visiting Cornish relatives that live close by. We had our two retired Guide Dogs with us and found the close availability of coastal walks and beaches eminently suitable for exercising them. The quiet and friendly neighbourhood was very enjoyable as were the closely accessible restaurants and cafes which provided an easy alternative to home cooking made easy by range of kitchen appliances available. Easy access to Asda and Tesco supermarkets made shopping quick and trouble free.
“Relaxing Cornish retreat in Charlestown”
We had a lovely week in Apple tree house, it had everything we needed for a much needed break. A walk down to the harbour with the museum and good pub on route, very easy to park and close to everything we could of needed.
