S220 - The Gingerbread House
About the home
Just above the harbour in St Mawes, a pretty little semi-detached south-facing cottage, once the village bakery and still full of character with original features and some antiques. At the front, shared patio looking over the sea, surrounded by flowers and catching the sunshine - a lovely spot for morning coffee and papers. From the cottage, steepish path and steps lead down to the harbour nearby.
Inside, restored with care and comfortable. Small, cosy living room (open fire available autumn and winter) with beams, sea view, TV/DVD, iPod dock; well-equipped kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave) with pine table/chairs and wood floor. Steep, narrow stairs (no stairgate) up to double bedroom and large bathroom (suite with Victorian roll-top bath plus separate shower); door from bedroom or bathroom to 'secret staircase' to a pretty 'hideaway' twin bedroom with cabin door, beams and rafters. Both bedrooms have sea and village views. Parking for one car.

The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall's 'Med': here is Cornwall at its warmest, most sheltered; of creeks and tidal waters penetrating deep inland, deep in woods, silent except for birdsong; of wonderful gardens growing things that live nowhere else outdoors in England (marvellous in rhododendron, camellia, magnolia time, from March to end of May especially); of sailing boats everywhere decorating the sea; of harbour villages where the light is Mediterranean - dazzling in the sunshine. And really very little that is ugly has been allowed to be built.
Here is Truro, Cornwall's (small) capital, with its 20th century cathedral; Falmouth, resort town and cargo/cruise ship/yacht port, superbly sited; and the glorious Helford River. Trewithen, Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah, Heligan (Lost Gardens of) and Caerhays are among the finest gardens. In the very middle of Cornwall, Lanhydrock house is very special, so is its garden. Not the greatest area for beaches, but good sandy ones near Veryan and Portscatho, in St Mawes, and around Falmouth and the Helford River's mouth. Not to be missed is St Just-in-Roseland's churchyard; nor - within easy reach - is The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
The St Mawes area
St Mawes: beautiful village (shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries) with harbour, two beaches and Henry VIII castle, at the end of the lovely Roseland Peninsula, looking across to St Anthony Head (summer pedestrian ferry), and to Falmouth and the Helford River. Pedestrian ferry to Falmouth and cruises on Carrick Roads. Sailing school; canoeing; fishing trips; regattas. St Just in Roseland, 2 miles.
