St Mawes is a much sought-after harbourside village on the Roseland peninsula and Carricknath is a gorgeous holiday abode perfectly situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac, just a short stroll away from the beaches, fabulous shops and restaurants of the village centre. With views of the Carrick Roads estuary from its elevated position, Carricknath has everything you need for a family holiday or a group of friends looking for a Cornish getaway.
Carricknath is a cosy single-storey holiday haven surrounded by tranquil gardens and a gorgeous view! From the moment you step over the threshold you will instantly feel at home in this delightful home where you can sit all day and enjoy the sea vistas. From the rear of the property entry is through the handy utility-room, the perfect place for beach gear or walking boots. The sociable L-shaped living space is light and bright thanks to dual-aspect windows taking in the estuary views.
Through to the kitchen, and everything has been thought of here to make your holiday relaxing, including the all-important dishwasher! The feature dining-table is just the place for everyone to gather and plan an exciting day ahead. From here the sitting-area invites you to relax, perhaps on the window seat where you can gaze at the yachts bobbing out to sea or sit on the comfy sofa in front of the Smart TV. Carricknath has been beautifully furnished by the creative owner and the nautical theme adds to the charm here. Down the corridor three bedrooms await. Two bedrooms have 'zip and link' beds, so you have the flexibility to choose between twin beds or a super-king double and the smaller bedroom has a single bed with a truckle bed underneath, ideal for the children in the party. All the bedrooms are fresh and bright with new carpets and decorations. The family bathroom has both a shower and a bath, so you can choose between a long soak or a quick refreshing shower.
Outside Carricknath lends itself perfectly to al fresco dining. Imagine sitting from dawn until dusk enjoying the peace, tranquility and views, all the ingredients for a perfect holiday!
Just a ten minute stroll away St Mawes awaits, a gorgeous unspoilt fishing village with a pretty harbour and a great selection of eateries and cafes. Wander around the village and enjoy stunning views over the estuary whilst eating your fish and chips from the paper on the sea wall, or perhaps choose one of several fine dining establishments, there is loads of choice here. Perhaps the family are looking for a beach day? Summers beach is a delightful sand and shingle beach where children will love the shallow turquoise waters, and kayakers and paddle boarders will enjoy exploring the many secret coves and inlets. A passenger ferry runs from the harbour across the bay to the cosmopolitan town of Falmouth where you can spend hours exploring the many eclectic shops and galleries or perhaps visit the Maritime Museum which gives a nod to the history of this great port. A short drive away the gorgeous village of Portscatho beckons, with a great choice of stunning sandy beaches and of course the renowned Hidden Hut where guests sit side by side on wooden benches and enjoy food created from the freshest of local produce (book ahead for feast nights, they are very popular!). Further afield the iconic Eden Project with its mighty biomes is worth a visit, or maybe The Lost Gardens of Heligan, overgrown and lost in time for over thirty years and now restored to its former glory. Walkers in the party will be captivated by the miles of coast path walks, which start just a two minute walk away from the door of Carricknath! Take in spectacular scenery, hidden coves, breathtaking vistas and gorgeous countryside, a walker's paradise. However you plan to spend your precious holiday time, a holiday in St Mawes will be an inspired choice!
