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.

Well equipped and breathtaking views. 3 double bedrooms had breath-taking views across the garden over to St Anthony's. The other 2 had views of the drive which weren't so exciting but quiet.

We love L T and it never disappoints! There are the most spectacular views and we enjoy watching the yachts sailing in and out of the harbour as well as the massive ships heading to Falmouth. Paula and Les are generous hosts and do everything to make us feel relaxed.

The cottage had a pleasant atmosphere and was very conveniently located near the centre of St Mawes, but in a quiet road away from the sometimes busy harbour area. The cottage was quite clean and well equipped. Few grumbles, but the reserved parking place (an attraction for us) was occupied by another car on arrival. My wife left a note on the offending car , and it was eventually removed the next day. As a person with some mobility problems I found some difficulties in negotiating the first floor passage between one of the bedrooms and the bathroom. This was because there are two steps down and then two steps up when passing the top of the main stairs. I have no problems with stairs if they have bannisters, but there was nothing to hold on to at the top of the stairs. Installation of a handrail would solve the problem. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
