Quiet time spent here out of season

Wonderful accommodation perfect location with all that we needed. We had to unexpectedly contact housekeeper and was very happy with their helpfulness and prompt resolution. I would strongly consider returning to this area next year - hopefully to the same accommodation.

lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay as in previous years no complaints. Only slight dissatisfaction very minor , some of the easy chairs are not very easy!! Especially when one comes to get out of them but maybe I'm getting a bit stiff with the encroaching years! Not really a problem..

Great Location and views

  • 5 of 5

We booked at very short notice & were really pleased with the cottage. The view from the lounge / dining room and two front bedrooms is stunning.

We noticed other reviewers had mentioned the bathroom - with its very sloping ceiling - and yes this could be a problem for some - but not us

The outside terrace was very useful and very quiet when we were there. The steps up to the terrace are a bit overgrown but not a problem.

Lovely get away.....

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, lovely cottage. We were a party of 6 adults, the cottage has a very tiny shower/bathroom, not much room at all, a very tight squeeze, I only used this room once to shave and struggled with the lack of space. Luckily there is an outside 'eco' toilet (very cool) and outbuilding with shower, which was a great addition - two of use that stayed downstairs basically used this as our ensuite - the shower was fantastic, great power and plenty of hot water.

We eventually found the TV, it is the size of a postage stamp! Could not believe a room that size had such a small telly...however, as it was so small, we did not turn it on for the whole week - we actually talked, read books and played board games, actually made the holiday more enjoyable!

The sofa needs re-stuffing not that comfortable.

We also found the lack of storage space in the bedrooms, especially downstairs a pain. The beds in ALL the rooms are amazing, extremely comfortable, we all slept like logs!

If may seem a moaning review, however, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay at the same place again.

OH, special thanks to Angie the housekeeper who actually called me when we were travelling down to see if there was anything she could do for us, i.e. had we forgotten anything - Also advised the house was ready before 4 pm if we arrived early.

Chilled Out

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous week . Stayed 21st to 28th January. The cottage was very comfortable and homely and from the moment we stepped through the door we all started to feel relaxed. Couldn't fault anything and we would recommend Our Cottage to all ages.

Location

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. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes' walk including a Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
