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.

                                                                                                      This was our second visit to Fisherman's Cottage (the first being in June 2015) and after a pretty horrid journey, due to weather and road works, we were only too happy to stumble over the thresh-hold of this lovely property and settle down to a fish pie in the delightful kitchen! On both occasions the cottage has been clean and tidy, the bedrooms made up with clean, fresh linen and the bonus of hand and bath towels in the upstairs bathroom and downstairs loo are very welcome. The kitchen is really well kitted out, with dishes, plates and cutlery etc for every culinary need! There is a washing machine/dryer and dishwashing machine, which makes life very easy when you are on holiday. The deck is a suntrap, especially in the afternoons, and we were lucky enough to be able to sit out and make use of it. St Mawes is a pretty little harbour village with some lovely walks close by. We took the Place ferry over to Place and enjoyed a picnic at St Anthonys Head. One can also walk further to Port Scatho and find the Hidden Hut - on this occasion we drove as the weather was not particularly good on the day we chose to go. The Idle Rocks is very handy to walk down to and enjoy a G&T on the terrace looking out at the sea, as is the St Mawes Hotel. We also enjoyed a splendid meal at the Watch Tower - well worth a visit as it was absolutely delicious and service was first class. Scrummy bread and croissants can be bought daily at the bakery on the Quay - the croissants are particularly edible! We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Fisherman's Cottage, am sure it will not be our last! Thank you to Danny for letting us stay in his lovely cottage, which is an absolute delight.

The accommodation has everything that we need and we appreciate the outdoor patio area for our gin and tonics!

We think it is really good that you offer a couples discount for the use of one bedroom/bathroom only. Makes this great value for money. We appreciated the owners welcome pack too which gave lots of local information and useful tips.
