Right at the water’s edge on the beautiful Percuil River and tucked at the end of a quiet lane, Westward’s tranquil location and stunning views are sublime. Nearly all the rooms have panoramic water views, and doors from the living-room open onto a wide balcony that runs the length of the house, overlooking a lawn that is fenced from the water beyond.
The comfortable sofas, wood-burner and huge picture windows in the living-room might well entice you just to sit and watch the comings and goings out on the water, but should you feel the need to explore further afield there are a variety of restaurants and shops in St Mawes and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are just a short drive away. The coastal footpath is nearby and the beautiful countryside of the Roseland peninsula is right on your doorstep – perfect for enthusiastic walkers.
In summer, a little watersports centre generally operates from the foreshore near the house so why not send the children off for a few lessons in dinghy sailing or paddle boarding while you sit on the terrace with a cup of fresh coffee and enjoy watching them from dry land!
Westward is built into the side of a slope, so although its accommodation is reversed, the living-room, one double bedroom and a shower-room on the first floor have front-door access. The kitchen is separated from the dining-area by a low dividing wall, allowing those preparing meals to look out to the water or chat with others. Stairs lead down to the other bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower-room and well-equipped games-room, which has table-tennis and table-football to keep youngsters happy and a television and DVD player as well; there is also access out to the garden and a patio-area.
With only two other houses nearby, one sharing the access drive, you can certainly relax and unwind in peace at Westward, looking across the water to the harbour of St Mawes or at the boats sailing from the nearby boatyard.
Parking is provided for two cars, and additional parking is available at Percuil car park, at the top of the drive.
