The Roseland Peninsula region

Cornwall has long been one of the most popular holiday destinations in England because of its beauty and variety of activities. The Roseland Peninsular in Southern Cornwall has unrivalled coastal scenery with wooded glades, craggy cliffs, delightful creeks, secluded coves and beautiful fishing villages. It is steeped in history with its ancient megalithic monuments, legends and stately homes. The climate is the mildest in the UK, so the famous tropical gardens of Heligan, Trebah and Trelissick are well worth a visit. Falmouth, with the National Maritime Museum, is a short ferry journey away. The Eden Project, Tate Gallery at St. Ives, surfing in Newquay, Rick Stein's in Padstow, Caerhays Castle and gardens, and Helston and are all within an hour or so's drive. There is also course and trout fishing areas near Falmouth. It is fabulous for all water sports enthusiasts.

St Mawes

St. Mawes lies at the tip of the Roseland Peninsular in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by spectacular National Trust scenery. It provides some of the finest sailing waters in the British Isles. Being positioned within the Gulf stream, it has a mild climate, which in the summer is comparable to parts of the Mediterranean. St Mawes has its own tropical garden at Lamorran House and the beautiful gardens of St Just in Roseland Church are a walk away. The village boasts several restaurants and hotels serving superb local sea food. For a fine dining experience there is the world famous Tresanton Hotel. St Mawes has many amenities including a range of shops selling excellent local produce, two banks, three pubs, a hairdresser, a post office, chemist, doctors, churches, tennis court, kayaking, bike hire, fishing excursions, a sailing club and a very scenic Tudor Castle (English Heritage). Horse riding stables are five miles away. It is an ideal base for family holidays, having several sandy beaches, plus excellent rock pooling and crabbing off the quay.

The small idyllic harbour, an important port in medieval times, has a small working fishing fleet, fishermens cottages, sandy beaches, craggy cliffs and fields sweeping down to the sea. Being on the South West Coastal Path, it is a paradise for walkers and a magnet for artists, bird watchers and sailors. From the quay, there are passenger ferries to Falmouth (National Maritime museum), Truro and Place, or you can take a water cab up the Fal estuary. Failing this you could just laze on the beach with a Cornish pasty and watch the beautiful sailing boats...........A perfect spot for a memorable holiday.

"Glorious views and beautifully appointed"

We spent two wonderful weeks at this apartment during the last week of September and beginning of October. The apartment was beautifully appointed and the owners could not have done more to make you feel welcome; they had added lovely touches with fresh flowers, local biscuits and wine. For us, being sailing and boating enthusiasts, the location of the apartment was perfect. Two minutes from the Quay and superb views throughout meant you could see everything that was going on, all the ferries coming and going and also watch the big cargo ships entering and leaving Falmouth with the added bonus of the local yacht club racing. Had the weather been poor, then we would have had lots to keep us occupied! It was also an ideal location for exploring the area, both by boat and on foot - wonderful walks quite close by again leading to beautiful views. St. Mawes had everything you needed whether it was great restuarants or local pubs, plus an excellent supermarket. Truly a great find and we certainly hope to return

"Summer holiday 2014"

The apartment was just gorgeous. Beautiful inspiring views from all aspects of the apartment meant it was an absolute pleasure to spend time relaxing indoors. It had everything a family could want. Being on the top floor of the building meant there wasn't any overhead noise either. t would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inspiring and truly relaxing break in Cornwall. The village was also well equipped with a coop and lots of activities for children and good places to eat.

"Many windows with amazing views"

I went with 3 friends to Crow s Nest in february for 6 days. From the moment we did open the front door we felt very welcome by the general atmosphere and by lovely flowers and a nice bottle of wine... The apartment is very beautiful comfortable and with the most amazing sea views from most windows (5 windows out of 6...!!) I could have spend hours relaxing just watching the boats on the sea and the busy harbour...Crow s Nest is a perfect name as from that "cosy nest" you can observe and watch the world go by....( I thought since there is a lift as well it would be a perfect place to bring elderly parents who might not be very mobile) The apartment is very well situated close to the quay lovely shops pubs and nice restaurants... We didn t want to leave but we really hope to come back...

"Luxury apartment with fabulous sea views"

I went with my daughter for a few days in July to Crows Nest. It is a fantastic apartment with everything that you could wish for - Denise and Alastair the owners seems to have thought of everything . It is tastefully decorated and furnished and incredibly clean and comfortable. The views from all the windows are the best part - waking up in the morning to the bustling harbour and sea views made our stay very special. This really is a very special apartment that I would thoroughly recommend.

"An amazing retreat with views to dream of and never forget ."

We have stayed at the crows nest many times and never been disappointed , the views are amazing and the apartment is equipped very well and to a very high standard indeed . We are just about to book our next break there for later this year . We have to very busy sons and they love the apartment and watching everything going on at the harbour , it's 24 hour people and boat watching and the most stunning views , it's worth getting up early to see the sunrise and st mawes slowly come alive !

"A little bit of heaven by the Coast"

Everything about this stay was simply wonderful. The property is gorgeous with beautiful views and Denise could not of been more helpful throughout the whole process, to include leaving us biscuits and wine, to making sure we had enough information about the surrounding area. Although the property doesn't have parking (much like most of St Mawes!) if you drive a little up the hill from the property there is plenty of parking, and plenty of helpful locals to help you find it. Some lovely bars and shops are not even a two minute walk from the property, the location simply couldn't be better.

"Stunning views and very relaxing"

We were impressed from the moment we walked in and it just kept getting better. It was spacious (there were just 2 of us), comfortable and well resourced; we had all we needed and wonderful views. The village is lovely and so much can be done without a car; we only used it once.

The Crows Nest is an extremely clean and comfortable apartment with fantastic views over the harbour - makes your morning cup of tea in bed a real treat! The owners could not have been more helpful with lots of information about where to go and what to see. St Mawes is a great location from which to explore the area which is beautiful and there is a good shop and several good restaurants/pubs in the village so you can also just relax and not take the car out! There are regular boats to Falmouth and the Museum there is well worth a visit. Lovely walks/beaches and gardens to visit so something for all ages - we would not hesitate to recommend this lovely apartment .

"Simply Perfect !"

Crows Nest is a fabulous base to explore this lovely area and theres so much to occupy yourself with in and around St Mawes... that the car isn't essential. We used it once in the week to visit the lizard but could easily of just speant another day wandering locally. Walks, great food, ferries to other parts of cornwall are on your doorstep. The owners were lovely and took the time to make sure we had a fantastic week. little detail was well appreciated and went a long way. The beauty of the apartment is the stunning views that allow you to watch the world go by without needing to move. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and really didn't want to leave. Don't hesitate to book yourself for a week i'll defintaley be recommending this place to family and friends.

"A fabulous property in a wonderful location"

If you are looking to take advantage of everything that St Mawes has to offer based in a comfortable apartment with stunning views, then Crows Nest is for you. The highlights for my family were waking up to sea views, retreating to the double aspect lounge after a day on the beach, and sleeping soundly on the very comfortable beds. Lots of nice pubs and shops on the doorstep. It's feasible to simply park your car for a week and use the ferries and local facilities. Highly recommended.
