Cottages in St Mawes
Commanding glorious panoramic sea views over Falmouth Bay, St Mawes harbour and the Percuil River, Cobblestones offers a spacious, comfortably furnished family home set in an acre of terraced gardens with a small plunge pool. The south facing living room features picture windows and access to a balcony that extends the length of the house - perfect for watching the marine activity below. St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII as a pair to Pendennis opposite, both part of a chain of coastal defences, is just a few yards away. A steep path, with steps, leads from the garden to the village centre with its sandy beach, inns, shops, restaurants and charming painted cottages. There is a regular ferry service to Falmouth, offering the Cornwall Maritime Museum, shops, restaurants, tennis and golf. Another ferry crosses the river to St Anthony in Roseland, where visitors may enjoy scenic walks, and in summer, ferries travel up the Fal to the cathedral city of Truro (23 miles by road). Eden Project 22 miles. Pubs, shops ¼ mile.
