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 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.

I particularly appreciate the lift, and the general suitability of the property for people with disabilities. We hope to return again next year.
