About the property

Brigids Patch - a holiday home that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

With its elevated position overlooking Summers Beach and the Percuil River, views toward the St Anthony's Lighthouse and the Lizard, its extensive private gardens and delightful south facing terrace, Brigids Patch is one of the prime self catering holiday homes of St Mawes. It is an 8-10 minute walk down to the St Mawes harbour area with its good range of facilities including butcher, baker, chemist, Co-op convienience store, post office, pubs and a range of hotels. It is no more than a 2 minute walk to the famous Lamorran Gardens or 5 minutes to St Mawes Castle and views over the spectacular Carrick Roads.

Brigids Patch was completely refurbished during the winter of 2009 and is a wonderful 3 bedroom holiday home. It is a good sized house, ideal for families or small groups of friends, but not too large that a couple would feel uncomfortable staying here. The property is private and therefore offers a great retreat whilst being within walking distance of all the facilities of the village. With an open fireplace, double glazing and central heating, Brigids Patch is also a fine place to stay during the winter There are some fine walks to be had from the property. Of particular note is the walk to St Just in Roseland and its delightful church and cemetary. You can easily reach the start of the footpath from Brigids Patch which descends and joins the coastal path north for about 45 minutes to St Just Creek.


Ground Floor: The main entrance hall leads to the south facing living rooms with access onto the spacious terrace. The fully fitted kitchen is to one side with a dining room leading off. A double bedroom is located on the ground floor with ensuite shower & WC. The family shower room is also located on the ground floor.

First Floor: Two bedrooms: one main double room with hand basin and fantastic views over Summers Beach and the Percuil River with a further larger twin bedded room, also with hand basin, to the rear. Access to the first floor of this 1920's cottage is via a steep stair case with only a partial hand rail, due care and attention needs to be taken.

Exterior: There is a superb deck, patio & long south facing garden with outside furniture & a BBQ.

A great stay in a beautiful area.

We loved our two weeks in this super cottage. It was comfortable and it provided all we could need. The garden is lovely - the children loved playing in the evening after a busy day on the beach. There is ample parking too. Thanks!

Nice property but bed too small and quilt even smaller!

Didn't sleep well at all.

Downstairs good but the two electric fires switched themselves off after just a few seconds so we were pretty cold on the evenings.

Ideal for us

  • 4 of 5

This was our third visit to Brigid's Patch,it fulfilled the criteria we have;dog friendly,car parking space and enclosed garden.The property is cleaned to a high standard,is well equipped with white goods which are new and have the necessary leaflets on how they work,some properties are lacking in these.

We love the area and consider Brigid's Patch is an ideal place to stop for us.

Great for dog owners

  • 3 of 5

Location is quite remote so excellent if you want to get away from it all. Beautiful views but not suitable for anyone with animal allergies.

St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.

St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.
