Number 22 The Crags is an attractive, ground-floor apartment on the Maenporth Estate. It's decorated in magnolia which gives the space a warm, clean feel, and acts as a perfect backdrop for the natural wood furniture throughout the property.
Access is via a short, internal flight of steps. Once inside, you'll step into the large open-plan living and dining area. It has a comfy, beige sofa with two matching armchairs and plenty of scatter cushions for extra comfort. The curtains and rug are a deep brick-red which add warmth and colour. There's a large dresser, painted in green, that provides extra storage for kitchen equipment, plus an exciting range of paperback books for you to enjoy on the terrace on a warm, sunny afternoon. In the corner, you'll see the wooden dining suite which provides seating for four with space for a leisurely evening supper with a bottle of something chilled, or a noisy family game of gin rummy.The kitchen is fully equipped and contains everything you'll need to look after the family for a week or two. It's a compact and attractive room, kitted out with wood units and biscuit-coloured splash back tiles.
Along the hallway and you'll come to the master bedroom which has a small television for lazy mornings catching up on the news. There's a twin room next door. Both bedrooms have solid wood furniture, and patio doors leading onto the terrace. The family bathroom has both a bath and overhead shower unit to suit all needs, plus there's an en-suite shower room, accessed via the twin bedroom. Both have heated towel rails to keep your beach towels warm and dry.Outside again and you'll see why this apartment is such a popular choice: the terrace is large and wraps around the property, giving you plenty of outdoor space which is relatively private. You'll also have uninterrupted views of Maenporth beach and Falmouth Bay. Imagine a leisurely breakfast out here, with a cafetiere of hot coffee, warm, buttery croissants and the morning newspaper. What a perfect start to the day.
We'll have a welcome hamper of red wine, Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk and a selection of Cornish biscuits, ready for your arrival, and you'll have 29 acres of established gardens to explore, plus full use of the leisure facilities. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages required on this property.
The Maenporth Estate is just two miles from Falmouth and overlooks the beautiful Maenporth Beach. It's a private complex with a coded entrance gate, making it safe and secure for all guests.
Set in 29 acres of natural woodland, with stunning views of the cove, it's a perfect base for family holidays. You'll find two all-weather tennis courts, a children's play area, and, of course, the Leisure Centre where we have our indoor, heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. There are pool and table tennis tables - all free of charge.
The famous award-winning Cove Restaurant is on site, or if you'd prefer something simple, try the Life's a Beach Cafe - you guessed it, on Maenporth beach, for fresh crab sandwiches or a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream. Two miles along the coast and you'll come across Helford Passage and the wonderful Ferryboat Inn which specialises in serving local seafood dishes. From here you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, or hire a rowing boat or paddle board for the afternoon.
Maenporth's a sheltered cove with shallow waters, making it perfect for all kinds of family beach activities: the little ones will love paddling, splashing daddy, and clambering through rock pools. There's plenty of sand and piles of pebbles for sand castle building, and beautiful clear water for swimming.
Arvor Sea Kayaking offer guided kayaking trips throughout the year, and Cornwall Divers will take you on a scuba diving course from the beach! And, at low tide, you may spot the famous Scottish trawler, Ben Asdale, that was wrecked off the Maenporth coast on 30th December 1978.
The nearest town is Falmouth - the third largest natural harbour in the world - take a boat trip along the Carrick Waters to a smuggler's cottage, or hop on the ferry to St Mawes. Visit the Maritime Museum, great for children with its hands-on approach. Catch some Grand Medieval Jousting at Pendennis Castle. Or simply sit with a cold glass of white wine and watch the boats glide by.
Whatever you choose to do, you'll be sure to unwind from the stresses of life, and simply relax...
