Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent an amazing half term at High Meadows. What can I say, it was the best family holiday yet. Location, house and weather all fantastic. Will definitely be back.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay able to get to the North of Cornwall if you want to lots of places and beaches to visit. High Medowes a great place to stay, comfortable enough parking balconies and garden very pleasant to sit, great views from the kitchen and dining room. Great to be able to walk into the village, which we managed to down load a treasure trail with the grandchildren which we all enjoyed. We had a great holiday.

We had an excellent family Christmas here. Everything we needed and space for everyone.

All clean and tidy. Comfortable beds and superb plumbing and heating system resulting in the best shower I’ve ever had.

An enjoyable holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our large extended family (aged 3-60+) had a lovely fortnight's holiday at High Meadows. The accommodation was excellent, very comfortable beds and really good showers (the wet room was very welcome after a day at the beach). There was also plenty of seating for the whole family and a very well-equipped kitchen. The 2 lounges with sky TV in both also kept the children well-entertained. The beach and town of St Mawes are only a 10 minute walk from the house. Our only criticism is that when we arrived there was dog hair all over the floors, what we assumed was dog slobber on the windows and more worryingly quite a lot of dog mess on the grass in the garden. With very young children this was unacceptable; obviously it is a pet-friendly house but we would hope not to see evidence of previous occupants' dogs when we arrived! But other than this we couldn't fault the house or its location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. I am so sorry about the dog hairs and marks on the windows. I have raised this with our cleaners and they will double check in future. We are a dog friendly house as we know how much dogs are part of the family and enjoy coming on holiday too. But we do ask dog owners to keep their dogs in the large utility area and not to allow them in bedrooms for exactly this reason. Our cleaners are only responsible for cleaning the house and not the garden. We also ask dog owners not to allow their pets to make a mess in the garden and if they do, they should of course clean up afterwards. We will adjust our notes to dog owners to reflect your feedback and re-emphasise "house rules" for pets. Otherwise, we are glad you had a good holiday and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

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 well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
