Tucked away just moments from the pretty harbourside of St Mawes on the Roseland peninsula, Spinnakers is a quiet holiday pied-a-terre, ideally situated for a car-free holiday with all you need for a Cornish getaway close by. St Mawes is an ideal place for a holiday with a great choice of places to eat, several sheltered beaches and a vibrant harbour bustling with sea-going activities. Off the main street, Spinnakers is found through a secure passageway and up two flights of steps, tucked away in a peaceful collection of similar apartments. A small patio leads to the front door where you will find a table and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining in the Cornish sunshine.
Once inside, you are welcomed into a spacious sitting/dining-room, all on one level and with windows the length of the room making it light and bright. Two comfy sofas invite you to relax in front of the Smart TV after a busy beach day and the dining-table is ideal for gathering everyone around to chat about the adventures of the day, or perhaps a board game! The kitchen is found behind the dining-table and this compact space has all you need to cook a holiday meal, including a slimline dishwasher. The spacious main bedroom has a double bed and super sleek en suite shower-room, whilst the second bedroom has twin beds, ideal for either children or adults. A family bathroom has a bath with a shower over.
Outside you have the luxury to choose to sit outside the front door on the patio or take a flight of steps up to a second decked area where you can enjoy views over the Carrick Roads and watch the boats sail by. With a great location and pleasant accommodation, Spinnakers is the ideal place for a short break away for a family looking for a Cornish holiday with everything close by.
Delightful St Mawes has lots to offer when it comes to a West Country getaway, in fact if you are searching for a car-free location this could just be the ticket. There are plenty of choices when it comes to eating out, from fine dining to fish and chips out of the paper watching the boats bob from the seawall. The beach is a mere stone's throw away and water sports lovers should take their kayaks and paddle boards to the sheltered waters of the harbour and explore the coves and inlets nearby. Climb the hill to explore impressive St Mawes Castle, constructed in the 1500s, it stands guard overlooking the river Fal and is now beautifully kept by English Heritage. Walkers will be spoilt for choice with mile upon mile of coast path to explore and a ferry to take you over the water to Falmouth to explore further afield.
A short drive away, the pretty village of Portscatho is renowned for its unspoilt charm, beautiful beaches and eclectic shops. For your morning coffee and fresh pastries with a view try Tatams overlooking the bay towards Gull Rock and Tavola for all things Italian. Along the coast path overlooking Porthcurnick Beach, The Hidden Hut has a great reputation for the freshest of local produce and great views. Further afield try The Lost Gardens of Heligan, lost in time since WW1, discovered thirty years ago and now restored to its former glory. There's also the Eden Project where a full day can be spent exploring the mighty biomes.
However you plan to spend your holiday time, Spinnakers is a great base for all your Cornish adventures.
