St Mawes, Roseland Peninsula, Truro District, Cornwall, England
Crow's Nest is called that for a good reason: the views from this unique apartment will make you feel on top of the world. Situated in the heart of St Mawes village, the top-floor apartment has panoramic sea views across St Mawes Bay to the unspolt National Trust countryside of St Anthony Head and beyond that, to the 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 sofas or even having tea in bed! It's easy to while away hours taking 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...

Crow's nest is a wonderful place to stay. Perfectly located at the centre of St Mawes it has amazing views from living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It's also a very comfortable and relaxing place and had everything we needed. We fell in love with the area and hardly used the hired car the entire week we were there. The...
