The property

St John 1 mile.

The Carew Lodge is a romantic, ground-floor apartment adjoining the owner's well-established pub, The Carew Arms, in Antony near St John, Cornwall.

With a studio-style layout, this spacious apartment is suitable for a couple's getaway, providing private off-road parking and additional on road parking, home comforts, and a great location for touring Cornwall and Devon.

Step inside to find a contemporary, open-plan living space with a kitchen area to stock up the cupboards and rustle up evening meals with ease.

You can dine at the stylish breakfast bar facing a large window bringing in plenty of natural light or at the dining table for four.

After the day's adventures, settle down in the sitting area with cushioned seating and a wall-mounted TV, whilst the woodburning stove gently warms your feet on colder nights; the sofa is also a sofa bed to sleep two children!

Before catching your rest in the king-size bed, freshen up in the stylish shower room with a spacious, contemporary walk-in shower.

The peaceful village of Antony is a lovely base away from the hustle and bustle for your romantic getaway; you'll have The Carew Arms country pub and restaurant just next door serving local and seasonal produce, a varied menu, and a beer garden to relax in the sunshine, whilst you can pick up essentials at St John Village Shop just a short drive away.

There are plenty of attractions nearby in an area known for wonderful bird watching and boating opportunities, along with the historic Queen Anne estate, Antony, offering tours and walled gardens, the unspoilt sands of Tregantle Beach, and idyllic walks along the Wacker Quay.

Be sure to pack your walking boots for romantic hikes along the Rame Head Heritage Coast dotted with sandy coves, restaurants, and historic sites, including Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park.

Alternatively, wander the town of Torpoint offering ferries to the port city of Plymouth; Devil's Point, Theatre Royal Plymouth, and National Marine Aquarium are just some of the activities on offer!

The National Trust Georgian house of Saltram has a lavish interior and landscaped grounds to explore, as well as the Tamar Valley AONB just north of the city, whilst more picturesque coastal paths and beaches await along the South Devon AONB.

Further afield, you'll find the historic Port Eliot Gardens, Seaton Beach close to the town of Looe, and the remote Bodmin Moor; Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve, Bodmin Jail Attraction, and Temple Trout Fisheries offer something for everyone!

However you spend your romantic escape to Devon and Cornwall, you'll love returning to The Carew Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Torpoint 3 miles; Plymouth 4 miles.

Across the Tamar estuary from Plymouth, this pretty village nestles in a wooded fold among lush green fields leading down to the water’s edge. Close enough to the city (4 miles via the ferry) to enjoy all its benefits it has the advantage of being in a peaceful corner of Cornwall away from the bustling crowds. Popular with people who love boats, the area is also a haven for birdlife. St John’s Lake with its wildfowl and footpaths running around its edge is just a 5 min walk away. The South West coast path running above the spectacular beaches on the Rame peninsula passes within 2 miles on its way to the beautiful coastal villages of Cawsand and Kingsand with their narrow streets and quaint cottages. Plymouth with its old Barbican dock area and the National Marine Aquarium also makes a great day out. If you love the sea, peaceful countryside, a village pub just a short walk away and a city within easy reach, this is the perfect place.
