This beautiful character cottage occupies a great central position in the quaint and ever popular fishing village of St Mawes and provides a perfect coastal escape for couples and families alike.
This superb former fisherman's cottage, located just under half a mile from the ferry port to Falmouth (4 miles), promises a truly idyllic stay to guests. Quaint and cosy with plenty of coastal and nautical features, this property is an opportunity to experience a slower pace of life in a delightful village with a lovely selection of independent boutique shops and cafes. After a day out exploring, head home and enjoy an al fresco glass of wine in the evening sun on the enclosed patio, looking out at the sea.
Whether you're admiring the characterful wooden features around the house or sampling the ales in the traditional village pubs, no one will get bored here. Head up six steps to the front door and you'll find that the interiors embrace the soothing blue and white tones of the sea, so you're always reminded of where you are. The lounge is bright and airy during the day with a window seat to curl up on with a book, but once the wood burner is lit in the evening it becomes a relaxing haven among the original wood beams and comfy furniture. At bedtime, get comfy in one of the restful bedrooms reached via the original steep staircase.
Hop on the pedestrian ferry in the summer to St Anthony Head (1.5 miles) and walk the South West Coast Path among superb views in this little corner of Cornwall. For a busier pace of life, head to Truro (19 miles) for lots of shops and eateries. Pendennis Castle (18 miles), one of the finest fortresses built by Henry VIII, will delight history buffs and imaginative children, while Orca Sea Safaris (16.5 miles) offers a boat trip full of beautiful coastline and hopefully some dolphins, seals and maybe even basking sharks!
