Carricknath has stunning, elevated, 180 degree sea views from St Mawes Harbour across St Anthony Headland and Falmouth Bay to the Lizard peninsula with all the activity of yachts and boats. This wonderful property is set in the much sought after harbourside village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula.

A charming single-storey cottage at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac, Carricknath has a large, light L-shaped living space with astonishing sea views, three bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms, tranquil gardens and enviable parking for two cars.

Everything you need for a family holiday or a group of friends looking for a Cornish getaway, the property is a short six-minute walk down to St Mawes waterfront with its harbour, shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes.

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 views.

Carricknath has been beautifully furnished by the creative owner and the nautical theme adds to the charm here.

The open plan living-room has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The feature dining-table is just the place for everyone to gather and plan an exciting day ahead. The wide, south-facing bay window seat in the living-room is the perfect spot to gaze at the yachts bobbing out to sea. Off the hall, three bedrooms await. The two larger bedrooms have super-king 'zip and link' beds which can easily be made up as twin bedrooms. The third smaller room is a lovely twin with a stunning view over to St Anthony headland. All the bedrooms are fresh and bright and are newly carpeted and decorated. The family bathroom has both a shower and a bath, so you can choose between a long soak or a quick refreshing shower. There is a second shower-room off the handy, spacious utility-room.

There is a large outdoor room in the grounds which may be used to store bicycles, kayaks, paddleboards, wetsuits and beach gear safely.

Carricknath's south-facing garden looks out to Falmouth Bay and has a garden table and chairs for al fresco dining. Imagine sitting from dawn until dusk enjoying the peace, tranquility and views, all the ingredients for a perfect holiday!

St Mawes is a gorgeous fishing village with a pretty harbour and a great selection of eateries and cafes. Perhaps the family are looking for a beach day? Summers Beach is a delightful sand and shingle beach in the village 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.

St Mawes is ideally located for trips to the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan with plenty of coastal walks along the South West Coastal Path. 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!
