Thimble Cottage is right in the centre of St Mawes and has retained some beautiful character features and clever design touches. The house is tucked in behind the newly renovated Idle Rocks Hotel, a mere 100 metres away from the harbour and quay area with its shops, pubs and waterfront and within easy reach of the beaches. It is ideally placed for those who want to be in the centre of St Mawes. There are great views down over Summers Beach yet the cottage retains its privacy as it is set back from the road.
The cottage provides accommodation for up to 4 people. The ground floor is divided into an open plan living room, with multi fuel stove, and dining room, separated by the staircase to the first floor with a small but excellently equipped kitchen. The bedrooms on the first floor look down over the stunning crystal clear waters of St Mawes Bay and both of them benefit from ensuite shower rooms. There is a small terraced area to the front of the property.
Ground floor: Lounge and dining room, both with log burners, kitchen with full range of appliances.
First Floor: Double bedroom with 5' bed, sea views and en suite shower room, hand basin, WC and heated towel rail. Twin bedroom with sea views and en suite shower room, hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.
Exterior: Small terrace to the front of the property with a table and chairs.
