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. Here visitors will find a renowned 13th century church with beautiful gardens to take a stroll through. 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.

The location within St Mawes is perfect. Although accessing the property requires a brief walk up the hill together with a short flight of steps, it means the views are second to none, and the layout of the property certainly makes the most of it with a picture postcard view in all directions! The apartment is finished to a high specification with excellent attention to detail, and the ice-making facility in the large fridge freezer was put to good use last week when we were lucky enough to have superb weather. The only thing not provided are hand towels, so make sure you pack some. Leslie and Paula provide a very warm welcome, ably assisted by 'the boys' Alfie and Buddy who are real characters, and we're already looking forward to seeing them again next year!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      A very comfortable flat. It would be useful to have a fan available as the main bedroom does get very hot in hot weather. Also there is a fire escape ladder provided in a box which is a good idea. However it doesn't appear to be useable from any of the windows as they all have safety bars across them which means looks as if it can't be mounted on the window ledges and even if it could it would then not be possible to climb through onto the ladder. Suggest the owners give some thought to this and set out specific instructions for its use at Pennant.

Fabulous views, excellent location, clean, tidy and very comfortable. A well equipped kitchen - sharp knives, big pans, serving dishes, great oven are always missed out in self-catering but not here. Great for our dogs & the space and privacy was much appreciated. BBQ was clean & we enjoyed using it. Possibly the patio could do with a little sprucing up - painting the wall would make a huge difference as would improving the container planting, and maybe windbreaks to make it even more user-friendly. If you want a relaxed holiday I would highly recommend Tantallon because the owners have got their priorities absolutely right.
