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.

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.

Beautiful views from all the from windows, you see for miles into the distance in one direction, coastlines and bays in another, and a river estuary filled with small boats and colourful buoys in the other. The property is ultra clean, well maintained and furnished, lovely and warm (we visited at the end of November) and so peaceful. You get to see the little ferry to Falmouth leave and return every hour, and the most amazing skies and sunsets. It doesn't offer the ultimate in privacy (if that's what you're after) and I thought the view was spoilt a tiny bit by the slightly dated glass and wood frontage to the terrace (which only mattered if you were sitting and looking at the sea from inside). Other than that, near perfect.

It is a lovely, comfortable house to stay in for our yearly trip to St Mawes with friends. Plenty of room for 3 couples to stay, so ideal for us.
