About the property

Seacliffe Warren - a holiday cottage that sleeps 7 guests in 4 bedrooms

On the sea front with diamond paned windows, thatched and covered in ivy, it must be one of the most photographed cottages in St Mawes. This beautiful old cottage with a large garden has been refurbished to a high standard and provides flexible and spacious accommodation in an excellent location for access to Tavern beach and the centre of St Mawes with all its facilities.

Key features of this unusual property are an open plan front room running the length of the house with a beautiful staircase in the middle, one side offers a cosy seating area with log burning stove, the other a dining and TV viewing area. In addition there is a separate TV room containing a sofa bed and chairs and a ground floor ‘wet room' with under floor heating specifically adapted for guests with disabilities, with a disabled toilet, basin and seated shower, the shower being equally useful for those returning from the beach, sailing or walking.

The three front sea facing bedrooms allow one to lie in bed and take in the view. The first floor also offers a second shower room, a family bathroom and separate toilet. The large, prettily planted and lawned garden with sea views from the summer house provides separate seating areas for reading and sunbathing together with barbecue facilities. The garden also has step free access from the rear. Two parking spaces are available at the top of the lane above the house. We do recommend that if wheelchair users have any particular requirements that they check with us before booking to avoid any possible disappointment.


Ground Floor: Sitting room, dining room / lounge with TV, separate TV room with small, low double sofa bed, kitchen, utility room, disabled access wet room with shower and WC.

First Floor: Two double (4ft 6ins) bedrooms, one twin/double bedroom with zip & link 3ft beds, one single (3ft) bedroom. Family bathroom with bath and handheld shower, shower room with WC and additional separate WC.

Excellent location with fantastic views from the cottage. Beautiful garden.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely thatched cottage in an excellent location. The property has a wonderful garden with superb views. The cottage is so close to the sea, you can hear the sea lapping on the shore at night time. It was Very well equipped kitchen complete with AGA. We were a family of 5 with 3 dogs and we all had a wonderful time. Beds were very comfortable. The cottage is a little dated (I know its very old) but we just felt that perhaps the price is a little expensive for the condition of the cottage.

We always enjoy our time at sea cliffs.

In need of attention summer house equipment very poor , no sun shade shed collapsing .

The garage entrance is so narrow it’s a hazard to most vehicles , it wouldn’t take much to enlarge the entrance without

Having to enlarge the structure..

Everything else ok.

Weekend break on the seafront

  • 4 of 5

We are regular visitors to St Mawes and this was a weekend break with family. The location is excellent at the top of Tavern beach. The house is cottage-style with plenty of history. Only criticism would be that the kitchen is a little awkward to work in. Certainly a great place to stay though.

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very good location right on the beach and with beautiful sea views. Only a 3 minute stroll down the road to the pub/supermarket etc. Clean and tidy with comfy beds. All in all very happy.

This fantastic big cottage was perfect for our large family

  • 4 of 5

An excellent location with superb facilities makes this cottage one of the best we have ever stayed in . Despite some modernisation it retained bundles of character and charm that we love . Low ceilings in places meant some bumped heads and a new fridge is needed soon we think .

Seacliffe warren

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in seacliffe warren. The location is perfect, the front door practically opens on to tavern beach. The garden is fabulous for evening drinks/BBQ s. The decor is slightly dated and kitchen not very spacious, but this would not stop me booking again

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.
