This generous one bedroom, first floor apartment has been lovingly refurbished throughout to create a luxurious base from which to enjoy your holiday on Cornwall's golden Riviera coast.  The owners share Cornish Gems exacting standards with regards to quality and their passion to create the very best holiday experience for guests emulates throughout.

The Property

Upon entering Bay View you are welcomed by its warmth and superior quality from solid oak flooring through to quality furniture and opulent, coordinating soft furnishings.  As the apartment is first floor it offers coastal views that stretch across to St. Austell Bay and beyond.  The lounge offers a large leather sofa ensuring a cosy spot to curl up after a day on the coast.  The spacious, fully fitted kitchen offers solid oak kitchen doors complemented with slate grey colour worktops and mosaic tiling.  The stunning master bedroom includes a solid painted wooden bed frame with indulgent mattress whilst the sleek bathroom offers the perfect pamper in the jacuzzi bath. 

Bay View is a superb apartment and is a great location for travel to other parts of Cornwall.

Make the most of the scenic views that can be enjoyed from both the lounge and its private sit out balcony which is a delightful sun trap.  This enviable base is within easy reach of some of Cornwall's undiscovered gems - the beautiful coastline that stretches between Mevagissey and Gorran Haven offers some breathtaking coastal walking.  For the botanists amongst you - The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the well known Eden Project should be high on the itinerary, alongside a collection of National Trust homes and gardens (including Lanhydrock Estate).  The cycle trail along Pentewan river leads pleasantly to a local pub and beach or pack up the car and head to the north coast for a day in the surf.  The closest beach, Porthpean, is within a 5-10 minute drive and day trip recommendations include; the picture postcard harbour town Mevagissey, Cathedral City Truro, sailing mecca Fowey and Charlestown (famous for its tall ships) which are all well within a 30 minute car journey.  Bay View is the perfect Cornish retreat for couples seeking cost effective, boutique accommodation in a convenient location which does not compromise on style or quality.  You may be interested to know there is a two bedroom apartment with a garden below Bay View (called Sea View Apartment) which is also available to rent through Cornish Gems.  The team at Cornish Gems highly recommend Bay View and for those that choose it for their holiday this year - it will not disappoint!
