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 clever design means you feel secluded but the lovely, friendly owners are not far away if you need them. Just a short walk into town it provided the best of both worlds being able to walk to the pub, or enjoy staying at the house taking in the amazing view- would definitely stay again!

Richard is a very good, attentive host but only when you need him. The rest of the time he blends into the background, working on the farm. The Mill has been very tastefully restored with very good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed, which to me, with arthritis in my spine, is very important. Loved the log burner, lit it twice, took me back to my childhood. As someone else has said, the roads are a bit tricky in places, a lot of single track, twisty roads. Can thoroughly recommend the Mill and the owners.

Initially there was an issue with recreational seating as there wasn't enough for all of us. However a phone call to the owners rectified this problem within an hour even though they were out of the country. I greatly appreciated the speed that this was resolved. The property was an excellent base for exploring. The town of Looe was very charming, full of quaint shops and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the property again. Very reasonably priced, superbly equipped and superbly located.
