Wiggy's Cottage is an adorable old fisherman's cottage in one of the quietest little back streets of St Mawes only moments from the harbour. With the Rising Sun being literally a stone's throw away, the Harbour with the ferries to Falmouth, Truro and Place and the local beaches only a short walk away, you could quite easily not have to use your car at all when you stay at Wiggy's.
Originally constructed around 200 years ago, this charming old terraced cottage is part of one of the oldest streets in St Mawes which happens to be one of the quietest and most convenient places to stay. There is a small private car park opposite the front door and Wiggy's has the benefit of a private space just yards away. The property also has the benefit of a very private 2 level rear patio garden which is a delightful place to enjoy the afternoon sun or an evening BBQ. (BBQ not provided but you may bring your own).
The front door, gives access to the ground floor that is floored throughout with quarry tiles and is heavily beamed.
Ground Floor: The comfortable lounge has TV with DVD, music centre, and a multifuel stove. Leading off the lounge is the dining room and to the rear is the kitchen with electric oven & hob, microwave oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle and toaster. There is a ground floor shower room & WC right at the back of the house with a utility area that has a washing machine & dryer. Iron & ironing board.
First Floor: Stairs from the dining room lead to the little landing with the main double bedroom to one side. All full of character these rooms are naturally smaller than you would find in a modern house but still offer a really comfortable place to stay. The family bathroom with WC and wash hand basin leads off the main corridor with a 4'6" double room and a single bedroom to one end.
Exterior: There is a private enclosed 2 level patio garden to the rear with garden furniture.
