A lovely apartment overlooking the Percuil River in St Mawes. Ideal for those wanting great value accommodation for a couple in St Mawes. Can be combined with Polmaro to provide accommodation for up to 4 adults.

The space
Pelyn is a modern self contained ground floor apartment located overlooking the Percuil River at Freshwater Boatyard in St Mawes. In the summer months the views of the river past the working boatyard can really be appreciated. The terrace provides the perfect place to enjoy peaceful evenings by the river. Pelyn is ideal for a couple seeking a great value base in St Mawes.

Pelyn can also used in conjunction with Polmaro, our other property at this location, to provide great value accommodation for up to four people wanting to stay in St Mawes.

There are lovely walks along the Percuil River and it is about a 10 minute walk to St Mawes Harbour past Summers Beach where you will find many pubs, restaurants and shops. It is a fantastic base for exploring the area particularly for walkers as the ferries in St Mawes will take you to either Falmouth (and beyond) or across the river to Place Manor. If you have your own boat, moorings are available for hire from the boatyard. Small motor boats and kayaks can be hired from St Mawes Quay in the village itself.

Please note that this is a working boatyard. From October to May your views outside and the light into the property many be restricted by boats on the quay. However, from approximately May through to October the boats disappear and the views out onto the river are revealed.

Ground Floor Only: The double bedroom (4'6" bed) has views over the Percuil River (although please note that from October to May this view is obscured by boats being stored on the quay). The WC & Shower room is to one side of the hallway. The main kitchen/lounge area is spacious for a 1 bedroom property with breakfast table, electric hob & cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and a washer dryer machine. There are 2 sofas in the lounge area. There is a fully glazed door from the lounge onto the small balcony.

Facilities & Services
Inclusive electricity & heating (night storage and electric heaters). Duvets, linen & towels are provided. There is a small outside table and chairs on the balcony. Moorings, boat storage and boat hire can be arranged. TV & DVD player. Netflix and on-demand TV is available for guests at no charge. WiFi is available at the property - however please note that due to the location neither speed nor strength can be relied upon.

Parking for 1 car. Regrettably smoking is not permitted. There are local shops, pubs & restaurants approximately 10 minute walk away around St Mawes Harbour. Other pubs are available in Portscatho (about 10 mins drive), Philleigh (about 10 mins), Ruan Lanihorne (20 mins) or Veryan (15 mins). It is important to note that the property is located on a working boatyard and there might be the odd bit of noise from work being undertaken on boats. There is a reasonable amount of activity in front of the property. From October to May boats are stored on the hardstanding and right in front of the property which does affect both the light and the views across the river. Pelyn will welcome babes in arms only - please bring your own travel cot. Regrettably no toddlers due to location.

Where you’ll be

St Mawes, United Kingdom

St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.

St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.
