We have booked a 2 week holiday in July on Dennison Avenue St Austell if any locals can offer any advise about the area this is in we would be most grateful, looked on google and it seems to be very built up many thanks
It's in the Bethel-Boscoppa area of St Austell, a residential area, about a mile or so east of the town centre, off the main A390 route. Closest beach, if that's what you are after, would be at Par to the east of your location, Charlestown isn't far away, 5 mins drive, a pretty harbour with square rigged sailing ships usually being repaired. Fowey is within a few miles as is Mevagissey. For shopping ,there's a large Tesco within a couple of mins drive.
As GB says it is in residential St Austell but only just over a mile from the bus and railway stations. The town itself isn't that great for tourism but from there it is possible to visit some of the best places in Cornwall fairly easily. Post back with information on what interests you and I am sure we will be able to suggest where to go. Please let us know if you will have use of a car as this will make a difference to the advice given.
It's just an ordinary residential area. You're probably not going to feel much like staying around the property during the day, to me it would be a bit like staying in my own back garden!
But if you have a car you are within reach of some interesting spots.
Even if you are limited to public transport, there are reasonable bus connections to Fowey, Mevagissey, Par and the Eden project, and the train will get you to Truro and beyond. So it's a very central base.
Within St Austell itself there aren't many charms, sadly, although the brewery tour is fun.
The coastline between Mevagissey and Fowey is lovely, so plenty of walking options. There are also a series of off road biking trails round St Austell, if this is your thing.
Thank you so much for your reply's it as helped an awful lot we are only using it for a base, would have liked to stay in Fowey or somewhere on coast but my husband is diabled so needed to be near a Town but we will get
about fine we stayed in Tintagel last year so we toured most of the North and enjoyed the rugged coastlines.
Its a strange place for a holiday let. Just a modern housing estate in a built up area. ok as a base i guess, but i wouldn't want to spend much time there.
