A wonderful Swallows and Amazon holiday. The property is on the water edge and comes with free use of 5 boats and a sailing school opposite. Self catering holiday home on the river with its own foreshore and use of Drascombe Lugger, safety boat with outboard, rowing boat, canoe and Pico. Fully equipped for 6 persons: one double , one twin and one with bunk beds. A riverside cottage near St Mawes with use of 5 boats. Perfect for a family holiday as safe waters outside and opposite a sailing school. A magical setting for the perfect holiday. Some of the most picturesque walks in Cornwall nearby. Close to beaches. Perfect for families. My daughter leant to sail here and is now a sailing instructor! We are the second owner in over 30 years having purchased Herons in 1999. The area is highlighted by Caroline Quentin in her TV series and is near to Portscatho and the Hidden Hut voted the one of most romantic restaurants in England which was featured in her programme. Drascombe Lugger, Pico, safety boat with outboard engine, rowing boat and canoe available to use free of charge.

Further details outdoors

As the property goes down to the foreshore which can be slippy the property is not suitable for the very young or very old.

Further details

Guests must be able to use an outboard engine as access is only by a safety boat across the Percuil River - under 5 minutes.

Guests must bring their own linen, towels etc and clean at the end of the stay. Well worth it! Guests have been coming for over 10 years and still love it. It may be possible to find someone to clean at the end of the holiday for you.

"A magical place with spectacular waterside location"

We have just returned from our fourth stay at Herons and the magic has not faded, Our first was when our children were very young and they loved exploring the fields and woodland behind the property; now that they are teenagers they are as enthusaistic as we are about exploring the river and Carrick Roads on the various craft included with the rental. It is a paradise for sailors and kayakers but even those who prefer to watch such activities from the shore will find plenty of opportunities for that, not to mention lovely walks along the coastal path on either side of the Roseland peninsula.
The fact that the best way to access it is by boat gives it a feeling of remotenesss yet St Mawes with its shops, cafes and pubs is just a short walk away while there is no better way to get to Falmouth than via the St Mawes ferry.
The house itself is homely and confortable, the kitchen well equipped and the newly installed heaters and wood burning stove means it is also very cosy when the wind blows outside - although the sheltered location means it is usually much balmier than anywhere else.
A perfect place to get away from it all

"Unique location; perfect for family holiday"

This really is a GREAT place to stay; a unique, beautiful and peaceful setting! The cottage is well-equipped and comfortable - a home from home. The water-side location makes this a perfect place to unwind, while providing a great opportunity to explore the creek and estuary down to St Mawes by canoe, sail, or motor boat. Beautiful views & lovely walks.

Love this place so much we've been back every year!
