Ensconced in a tranquil and verdant setting, yet a stone's throw from the fishing village of St Mawes, Spinnakers offers a rejuvenating and relaxing close-to-the-coast retreat.

Family-friendly holiday cottage St Mawes


Exuding home-from-home ambience, there’s a relaxed vibe and nautical edge to the interiors of this coast-inspired barn. Embracing authentic barn living, chunky beams and exposed Cornish stonework combine to create a stylish open-plan home. Throw open the double doors onto the peaceful garden area to really bring the outside in; this is as idyllic a setting for an al fresco breakfast as a sun-downer barbecue. Set on the heart of the Roseland Peninsula, Spinnakers is a luxury retreat, perfect for families in search of sea air.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Whitewashed wood and reclaimed nautical accessories combine in the king-size bedroom, where inky blues combine with pebble grey accents. Immerse yourself in the on-the-water inspired décor in the twin bedroom. Landlubbers looking for a relaxed stay can throw open the double doors and bring the outside in on springtime morns; you’ll find nature-watching from the comfort of your bed soon has you slipping into holiday mode. Enjoy an end-of-day recline in the family bathroom, whether enjoying a candlelit bath or freshen up post-beach shower.


Spinnakers really is a wildlife watcher’s paradise, promising the perfect place to recline and relax undisturbed. The verdant gardens, complete with natural pond offers a getting-away-from-it-all haven. When not making the most of this idyllic back-to-nature setting, you’re just a short drive from rockpooling at Summers Beach, exploring the fishing village of St Mawes and enjoying leg-stretching walks at the magical Trelissick Garden. 

For Relaxation

Whether you’re looking for a traditional bucket and spade family escape or a romantic couple’s retreat where you can recline undisturbed and simply enjoy a little together time, Spinnakers is as perfect a barn-for-two as it is a child-friendly home. For winter escapes, ensure you pack your walking boots to head off on foot along the coast path before heading back to cosy up in front of the wood-burner. In summer months, visit the nearby beaches and enjoy picnics of jam and cream scones before idling many an evening away with al fresco dining amidst the beautiful gardens.


There is parking for two cars outside the cottage. The owners live next door should you need them during your stay. The open-plan kitchen has a fridge (no freezer) an electric cooker and separate utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer. 



Style: Chunky beams and exposed Cornish stonework combine in this open-plan barn conversion which exudes a nautical flavour. Designed with relaxation in mind, setting and style combine to create a haven for relaxation.
