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. With an understated seaside appeal, vintage finds are offset against a backdrop of granite greys and stormy blues in this characterful converted barn.
Exuding home-from-home ambiance, 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 in this open-plan barn. 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.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Whitewashed wood and reclaimed nautical accessories combine in the kingsize bedroom, where whitewashed wood sits alongside inky blue throws and pebble grey accents. Immerse yourself in the on-the-water inspired décor in the twin room (which can also be set up as a king), where sail boat artwork reflects the close-to-St Mawes setting. 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.
This really is a wildlife watcher’s paradise, and 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 Trelissick Gardens.
Whether you’re looking for a traditional bucket and spade family escape or a romantic couple’s retreat where you can recline undisturbed and simple enjoy a little together time, Spinnakers is as perfect a barn-for-two as it is a child-friendly domain. 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, while summer months will find you idling many an evening away with al fresco dining amidst the beautiful gardens.
There is parking for two cars outside the cottage. The open-plan kitchen has a fridge (no freezer) an electric cooker and separate utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer.

FOOD AND DRINK
Open-plan living ensures that whoever's on chef duty doesn't feel kitchen-bound while the rest of the group relax and recline. From enjoying the catch of the day to barbecues that last long into the evening, there's a host of amazing local fodder to experience while you're staying at Spinnakers.
If you'd rather spend your break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Try The Driftwood in Rosevine for delicious dining, or for mouth-watering locally-sourced dishes The Watchhouse restaurant in St Mawes is worth a visit. On a summer's day the nearby Tresanton Hotel offers fine dining with awe-inspiring views from the terrace.
