Pelyn is a modern self contained apartment located overlooking the Percuil River at Freshwater Boatyard in St Mawes. Please note that this is a working boatyard and from October to May your views outside and the light into the property are very restricted by boats being stored on the quay. However, from May through to October, depending on the weather, the boats disappear onto the water and the view out onto the River can be really appreciated. Pelyn is perfect for a couple seeking a great value base in St Mawes.
Pelyn can also used in conjunction with Polmaro, our other property at this location, to provide great value accommodation for up to four people wanting to stay in St Mawes.
There are lovely walks along the Percuil River and it is about a 10 minute walk along the river to St Mawes Harbour with all its pubs & restaurants. It is a fantastic base for exploring the area particularly for walkers as the ferries in St Mawes will take you to either Falmouth or across the river to Place Manor. The boatyard itself will rent a small Bass boat to you for exploring the river at your leisure or maybe a fishing trip or two! Alternatively, if you have your own boat, moorings are available for hire.
Ground Floor Only: The double bedroom has views over the Percuil River (although please note that from October to May this view is obscured by boats being stored on the quay). The WC & Shower room is to one side of the hallway. The main kitchen/lounge area is spacious for a 1 bedroom property with breakfast table, electric hob & cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and a washer dryer machine. There are 2 sofas in the lounge area. There is a fully glazed door from the lounge onto the small balcony.
Facilities & Services
Inclusive electricity & heating (night storage and electric heaters). Duvets, linen & towels are provided. There is a small outside table and chairs on the balcony. Moorings, boat storage and boat hire can be arranged. TV & DVD player.
Parking for 1 car. Regrettably smoking is not permitted. There are local shops, pubs & restaurants approximately 10 minute walk away around St Mawes Harbour. Other pubs are available in Portscatho (about 10 mins drive), Philleigh (about 10 mins), Ruan Lanihorne (20 mins) or Veryan (15 mins). It is important to note that the property is located on a working boatyard and there might be the odd bit of noise from work being undertaken on boats. There is a reasonable amount of activity in front of the property. From October to May boats are stored on the hardstanding and right in front of the property which does affect both the light and the views across the river.
