Historic harbour town
Boutique stay Antonia’s Pearls is a collection of beautifully renovated family-friendly villas and cottages in coastal Charlestown, a 17th-century harbour village on Cornwall’s southern coast. Owners Antonia and David have the designer’s touch – each villa was individually restored and decorated by the duo, and all are bright and airy with unique nautical touches, including brightly coloured displays of buoys, sea-urchin lamps, salvaged photographs and reclaimed signs from shipwrecks and local shops. A calm, pebbly beach is a shell’s throw away and the postcard-pretty town is dotted with seafood restaurants, cosy cafés and enough creameries to make sure a proper Cornish ice cream can be in your hand whenever the mood strikes. Make yourself at home in your seaside stay: each has a fully equipped kitchen, private outdoor space, and cosy indoor lounge areas (some with original wood-burning fireplaces).
