Cottages St. Mawes, Cornwall Your Home Away From Home

If your idea of a perfect getaway is a tranquil, sleepy village that is full of charm then a St. Mawes holiday is a great choice for you. Located on the coast in the county of Cornwall, the small town of St. Mawes is perfect for relaxation and resting. There are a number of activities and attractions in the surrounding area if you are feeling adventurous and can bear to leave the comfort of your St. Mawes holiday rental house.

Things to Do on Holiday in St. Mawes, Cornwall

Although a relatively small location, a St. Mawes holiday has a lot to offer visitors in terms of outdoor activities. There are two beaches to be found in the village, one on either side of the castle. These sandy beaches are a great location for a spot of sunbathing, swimming or fishing. There is also a sailing club in the village as well as some tennis courts. Other activities available in the immediate area include golf, walking, cycling and horse riding.

There is the historic St. Mawes Castle to be visited which lies majestically on the coastline. Built as a fortress by King Henry VIII to defend against invasion on the South Coast, St. Mawes Castle and its larger sister, Pendennis Castle, near Falmouth, are well preserved and worth a visit whilst on a St. Mawes holiday.

Places to Visit on Holiday in St. Mawes, Cornwall

Just a 5 minute journey to the north of St. Mawes is the interesting and unspoilt village of St. Just in Roseland.

The gardens are home to many subtropical plants and trees, many of which are a rarity in England – the perfect day out for budding botanists or nature lovers.

Continuing north for approximately half an hour, visitors will come to the town of St. Austell. Famed for its china clay industry in the 19th century, today's visitors can learn all about this interesting industry by visiting the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. Also on the outskirts of the town is The Eden Project, essentially a very large greenhouse that is home to a range of wonderful plants, trees and lizards from all over the world.

Newton Cottage

5 of 5
It really was just perfect ! We were a family party of 8 adults & 3 dogs on a walking/eating & drinking holiday.The property was not over fussy so we always felt relaxed,the kitchen/living/diner being a fantastic space for our evening chill outs,Infact we never sat or ate in the living/dining room ! Outside the dogs loved the garden & we loved the sunny patio,the location was perfect with just a 5 min walk down into the village where the Victory inn,Rising Sun or St Mawes hotel were always ready to accommodate. Also the ferries were right at hand & enabled us to have some fabulous days out on the Roseland -- we also used the RIB water taxis to take us up to the beautiful Pandora Inn at Restronaught creek & then walked around the coast via Mylar bridge to Flushing where there are two lovely pubs & were picked up at 9pm, dogs & all !! Fantastic !! The service from Cornwall cottages was superb from start to finish,thank you !

A lovely Apartment, ideally situated to enjoy the beautiful Roseland Peninsular

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment which was so comfortable and well appointed that we chose not to eat out on any evening. Instead we bought local produce from the excellent Deli, well stocked supermarket, local bakers, and nearby farm-shop and ate in whilst enjoying the view of St Mawes' harbour through the open patio doors. The king-size bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in and the provision of a Nespresso coffee machine ensured we enjoyed an excellent capaccino every morning along with fresh pastries fetched from Café Chandlers opposite the Quay. Harbour Retreat was an excellent base from which my wife and I enjoyed the many beautiful costal walks with our Jack Russell.
