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.

The apartment is very well furnished with quality furniture, fittings and lovely comfy bed. Great view from the front over the bay. In fact the only downside to this property is getting your luggage into it, particularly if you are not overly young or fit. The nearest you can get your car is about about 100 yds. away. Apart from the access it's a great place with all the local shops, pubs and restaurants and the ferry to Falmouth on your doorstep. It's a good base from which to tour the local countryside.

Toilet basin could still have been slightly larger and the finish on the floor I am sure is still to be completed?? . Overall we were mainly impressed.
