The Boathouse in St Mawes is one of the most delightful places to stay in Cornwall. The Boathouse is a skilfully converted former sail loft fronting directly on to the Percuil River with exposed beams and wonderful views across to Place Manor and St Mawes Harbour. From your balcony or the sitting room you can watch the boats passing slowly by, or maybe look out for some of the varied wildlife that inhabits the river.
St Mawes Harbour with its shops, pubs and hotels is a short walk away along the seafront. From the harbour in St Mawes, you can take ferries to Falmouth, Truro, Place Manor and many other parts of the estuary. The harbour itself is a great place to watch the world. Take in a coffee, read the newspaper, watch the ferries come and go, take a stroll to the St Mawes Castle, have a cream tea at the Hotel Tresanton!
The Boathouse is superbly located for those wanting to get out on the water. You can bring a small dinghy and use the private slipway in front of the property. The owners are able to organise dinghy and dayboat sailing or organise yacht cruises at an additional cost. A small rowing dinghy is also available to hire. For boats up to 20 feet, there are two moorings available upon request and subject to availability at weekly rates, together with use of slipway and trailer parking. Relax or do as much as you want; The Boathouse is just a lovely place to be!
Please note that the slipway and the ground floor of the property are used regularly by the Owner.
