Property DescriptionThe property is approached via a steep drive from one of three parking areas (maximum three cars) and is located in a mainly lawned garden with a good selection of mature shrubs. The sea views from the upper garden especially are superb.
The hall leads through to the large lounge and dining areas with fantastic sea views from the village of St Mawes to Pendennis Castle. This area has TV with Freeview, DVD, music centre, very comfortable settees and dining for 10 persons. A door from the lounge gives access to the balcony with chairs to enjoy the 180 degree sea view and the ever changing marine activity. The well-equipped kitchen has a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and a double electric oven with a ceramic hob.
There are 2 double bedrooms on this floor, each with 5ft beds, a family bathroom with bath, separate shower and wash hand basin and a separate WC with a wash hand basin, and a master bedroom with ensuite, shower, bath, wash hand basin and WC, completes the accommodation on this floor.
Stairs lead to the lower floor with a large parquet floored bedroom with four single beds, and a door to give access to the garden. The utility room with sink and washing machine and a shower room with WC with wash hand basin are also on this floor.
Outside the garden, that is steeply terraced and extends to about one acre, has a “plunge” swimming pool (available from June to September) that has a maximum depth of 4ft. There is a BBQ and garden furniture by the pool.
There are about 100 steps that lead down to Lower Castle Road, to the renowned Hotel Tresanton and the extensive village facilities. St Mawes Castle is two minutes’ walk away, as is a lovely coastal footpath that leads to St Just in Roseland and the beautiful waterside church. The centre of St Mawes is a five minute walk.
A cot and high chair are available.
Cobblestones benefits from oil fired central heating, making it an ideal all year round holiday home.
Tariff & Availability
9 of us enjoyed a marvelous Christmas week at Cobblestones in December 2016. My grandchildren from 2 families loved being together in the large bedroom downstairs while 3 adult couples enjoyed the spacious bedrooms upstairs. What a view from the living room and 2 of the double bedrooms - it was a delight to wake up to the sun rising over the peninsula on the other side of the harbour.
The main space in the living room accommodated us all very well - for manic present opening, board game playing, jigsaw puzzling, 'watching a movie' and of course eating all together at one table. Equipment in the kitchen was just as we would expect and hope for. Although the drive is indeed steep, there was more space for parking than we had anticipated.
Cobblestones is well situated for a short walk along the sea front into the village facilities. My own preferences are the Victory and the Plume of Feathers (the latter in Portscatho) but the 9 of us enjoyed a meal outside the Rising Sun on 28th December! The Tresanton Hotel and Idle Rocks are to be admired! Plenty of good walking to be enjoyed.
A memorable Christmas enjoyed by all 9 of us, in large part due to the comfortable accommodation at Cobblestones.
