On the sea front with diamond paned windows, thatched and covered in ivy, it must be one of the most photographed cottages in St Mawes. This beautiful old cottage with a large garden has been refurbished to a high standard and provides flexible and spacious accommodation in an excellent location for access to Tavern beach and the centre of St Mawes with all its facilities.
Key features of this unusual property are an open plan front room running the length of the house with a beautiful staircase in the middle, one side offers a cosy seating area with log burning stove, the other a dining and TV viewing area. In addition there is a separate TV room containing a sofa bed and chairs and a ground floor ‘wet room' with under floor heating specifically adapted for guests with disabilities, with a disabled toilet, basin and seated shower, the shower being equally useful for those returning from the beach, sailing or walking.
The three front sea facing bedrooms allow one to lie in bed and take in the view. The first floor also offers a second shower room, a family bathroom and separate toilet. The large, prettily planted and lawned garden with sea views from the summer house provides separate seating areas for reading and sunbathing together with barbecue facilities. The garden also has step free access from the rear. Two parking spaces are available at the top of the lane above the house. We do recommend that if wheelchair users have any particular requirements that they check with us before booking to avoid any possible disappointment.
