If you dream of peace and tranquility, of enjoying a chilled glass of rosé whilst lazing in a hammock watching the ebbing tide, or of magical starlit evenings, you have found the ultimate waterfront destination. The atmosphere of Swallows and Amazons and summers gone by is epitomised in this luxury homestay, which nestles on the shore of romantic Restronguet Creek. Imagine being surrounded by family and friends, all gathered around the large outdoor slate dining-table with views across the estuary, watching the sunlight dance and sparkle upon the water. It’s the perfect place for those seeking a restful retreat that feels remote, yet is less than a 10 minute drive to the centre of Truro with it's many shops, restaurants and bars. Found at the end of a narrow lane, step into the realm of Calm Waters. The light-filled interior exudes classic coastal chic. The open plan kitchen/dining-room, with views from the table to be enjoyed by all, is a fabulous space with every appliance on hand to create a gastronomic delight using fresh local produce. A fantastic sitting-room – complete with large sofas, stripped floorboards, and opening glass doors to showcase the magnificent views – is the ideal spot to lose yourself in a good book or snuggle down for a relaxing afternoon nap. The sun-room has glorious water views and a handy desk for planning your day’s adventure, on sea or land. Bedrooms are beautifully styled; the twin bedroom and king-size bedroom are on the ground floor and share the family shower-room, both have views over parts of the garden. Up the spiral staircase is a real hideaway – the master bedroom with a luxurious super-king sized bed, en suite shower-room and the most spectacular views to revel in.
