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 cottage was very comfortable and homely and from the moment we stepped through the door we all started to feel relaxed. Couldn't fault anything and we would recommend Our Cottage to all ages.

We've visited so often now that it's like a home from home! Perfect for the dogs (beaches) and adults (restaurants/pubs) all within walking distance. Thank you also for the much appreciated bubbles, which were left chilling in the fridge - a perfect start to our New Year Celebrations. Apologies for not completing the Visitors Book - we were unwell with the flu' and had to return home earlier than anticipated. I also think we forgot to complete after our September stay. Will rectify that on our next visit to lovely Cobblestones and fabulous St. Mawes. PS: any chance of the addition of a hook on the back of the door in twin bedroom, nearest the bathroom. Just to hag towels/dressing gown, if we have other folk staying.
