  • “Skiber was definately a five star plus.”


    The converted barn was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, very well equiped with everday needs. On arrival we met the owner (Mike) who was very welcoming and full of information about the area. The welcome hamper was absolutely out of this world, with flap jacks, scones, buns, clotted cream, jam and a pint of milk. Not to mention dog treats! Our kids (13 & 11) were thrilled with the huge playing field over the garden gate, which had swings, climbing frame and table tennis. Not to mention the huge hot tub on our decking area! The location was perfect and was in the most beautiful setting, as it was away from any hussle and bussle, but you could easily get to places in the car. The King Harry Ferry was just down the road which was ideal for nipping across the river or there were lots of boats from St Mawes to various places too. The owners have kindly loaded a 'mussel' card with credit so you don't even have to pay full prices on the boats! This place was most definately a piece of heaven for both ourselves and the kids. The Roseland penninsula is place we had never been before, but after our wonderful experience here, we will certainly visit again. Thank you Mike and Sarah for letting us stay in your beautiful house.

About the property

Skiber is a newly-refurbished, two-bedroom, semi-detached barn conversion nestled on the Roseland peninsula, just outside St Just in Roseland and 4 miles from St Mawes.

A period exterior gives way to an entrance hall leading to the lounge and a separate downstairs WC.

A cosy living room, furnished with comfortable leather sofas, leads through to a modern kitchen/diner.

The fitted kitchen features a full suite of integrated appliances, including electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and a wine/beer-cooler; a USB/power station provides charging points for tablets and phones.

Upstairs, the two newly-carpeted bedrooms look out across the garden and the local countryside and offer a double room with double bed and a twin with a zip/link feature that can be made into a super-king-size double upon request.

Travel cots are available on request, making it an ideal setup for a family with small children.

The modern bathroom is located between the bedrooms and provides a bath with shower over, basin and WC.

Beyond the kitchen/diner, a large, enclosed decked area wraps around the cottage featuring a hot tub for relaxing in at the end of a long day of exploring.

There is Rattan furniture you can sit out on with a refreshing drink and an additional shared lawn provides ample space for picnics and games.

If you want to leave the car behind, take a short walk from the cottages across the creek to the beautiful church of St Just, labelled by the poet Sir John Betjemen as the prettiest church in all England.

Why not head to the stunning Messack Point, where you'll be rewarded with stunning views across the Fal Estuary?

Venture towards the beautiful sandy beaches at Pendower, Carne and Towan, where you can spend your afternoons relaxing on the soft sands sunbathing or taking a relaxing dip in the clear waters.

Also nearby is the wonderfully historic St Mawes Castle, as well as the National Trust House and Gardens at Trelissick.

Skiber provides a wonderful base for exploring all Cornwall has to offer.

About the location


Falmouth 16 miles via car ferry, 3 miles via passenger ferry; Truro 10.5 miles via car ferry, 18 miles by road.

St Mawes is a small fishing village situated on the Roseland Peninsula, part of Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is surrounded by rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush countryside and has a notable historic castle guarding the entrance to the River Fal. The village is a haven for boating and yachting with many events and functions taking place and of course the local produce is outstanding, with local pubs and restaurants serving delicious seafood dishes throughout the year. Nearby there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy including walks, watersports and boat trips. Across from the harbour is the town of Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, the amenities will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views.
