Crow's Nest is called that for a good reason: the views from this unique apartment will simply take your breath away. Situated in the heart of beautiful St Mawes village, the apartment has panoramic sea views across St Mawes Bay to the unspolt National Trust countryside of St Anthony Head and beyond that, to Helford River and the Lizard Peninsula. The full length French windows in the lounge and master bedroom mean that you can enjoy these spectacular views whilst relaxing on the comfortable sofas or even having tea in bed! While away hours drinking in the scenery and watching the sailing boats without even leaving the flat.

When you want to go out, you are extremely well situated. The apartment is only 100 metres from the picturesque quay with its quirky shops, atmospheric pubs and fine restaurants. If you fancy a trip to Falmouth,...

A great location overlooking St Mawes harbour. The living areas are flooded with sunlight and the flat is well maintained. Plenty to see and do in the vicinity, particularly if you use the plentiful ferries. more

It's perfectly located for anything you might want to do in St Mawes -... more
