The West Country 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 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.

"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.
