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.

It is surprisingly large, very clean, tidy and comfortable, and has everything you could need. It is located just a few minutes walk from the seafront of St Mawes and all the shops and restaurants. It is situated on quite a steep hill, so getting into and out of the car parking spaces needs a little care and some might find the walk back up to the cottage a little difficult. Lots of useful information was provided before we arrived and also in the cottage. The building work that was ongoing behind the cottage during our stay didn't really bother us at all. Over all we really enjoyed our stay in the cottage and would definitely consider staying there again. If only the weather had been a little better!
