Nestled in the heart of the charming Roseland village of St Mawes, September Cottage is a delightful holiday abode, perfectly placed just moments away from the gorgeous beaches and pretty harbourside where the passenger ferry can whisk you away to the eclectic maritime town of Falmouth and other secluded inlets and coves. Only a few yards away from the harbour, September Cottage is perfectly situated for a family holiday or for friends looking for a Cornish escape, and even your four-legged friend is welcome.
Step inside and you will be enchanted. The ground floor open plan living space is stylish and beautifully created with a wood-burner to keep you cosy during cooler months and large French doors to let in the summer breeze. Sink into the comfy sofa after a busy day and catch up on a movie on the Smart TV, or perhaps just chill with a holiday book. The galley kitchen has all the equipment you'll need to cook a holiday feast including a fabulous electric Aga and, of course, the all-important dishwasher. With fresh fish from the harbour and local produce available from roadside stalls, the freshest of ingredients will be close at hand. A table and chairs sit next to the kitchen area, perfect for sociable dining.
Climb the stairs, (take care as they are traditional steep cottage style stairs) to the first floor where two bedrooms and the family bathroom await. Gorgeous bedroom one has a comfy king-size bed, dressed in lovely linens and an en suite shower-room whilst bedroom two has twin beds, ideal for either adults or children. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over head so you can choose either a long soak or a refreshing shower after a busy beach day.
Outside, the back garden is a tranquil haven, sheltered and secluded, perfect for al fresco dining from dawn until dusk. Steps lead to a raised area with a separate sun-room and this delightful spot is just the place for a quiet holiday read or to linger over morning coffee.
September Cottage has all the ingredients for an idyllic holiday!
From the moment you arrive you will realise you are somewhere very special. St Mawes is a much sought-after village with a vibrant harbour and great selection of cafes, waterside restaurants and a fabulous deli. In a location such as this you may never need to take your car out and spend your blissful days enjoying everything on your doorstep. Summers beach is a short stroll away, ideal for families and paddle boarders, or perhaps you'd prefer to hire a kayak from the harbour and explore the crystal-clear waters around the coast. The energetic should climb the hill to St Mawes Castle and marvel at the stunning panoramic views across the Carrick Roads or perhaps pick up the coast path which leads to St Just In Roseland and the pretty 13th Century church described by John Betjeman as 'to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth', the Mediterranean gardens at the church are a sheer delight.
From the harbourside the passenger ferry plies the waters to the maritime town of Falmouth, with a great selection of eclectic shops and a fabulous museum and you can also catch the smaller ferry to lesser-known Place Manor where you can explore hidden creeks and the beautiful coastline around St. Anthony headland. Pack up a picnic and stop off at one of the many secluded coves for lunch and swim. Portscatho is a short car ride away, a gorgeous village with the most beautiful beaches and the Hidden Hut where guests sit side by side on wooden benches and enjoy the freshest of local produce (bookings are essential for feast nights).
Further afield The Lost Gardens of Heligan are fabulous, lost in time since WWI, discovered 30 years ago and now returned to their former glory or perhaps visit the mighty biomes of the Eden Project, quite spectacular and worthy of a day out. Horticulturists will be spoilt for choice with the gardens of Trelissick, Trebah and Durgan all within a short drive. Caerhays Castle has a world-famous magnolia collection and if you are lucky enough to visit in spring, this is one not to miss.
