About the property

Seagulls - a holiday home that sleeps 11 guests in 5 bedrooms

Seagulls is an extensive house with delightful uninterrupted views over the Percuil River & Froe Creek in a quiet residential area of St Mawes. Only a few steps from Freshwater Boatyard, the property is ideal for those looking to get out on the water & is only a short walk to St Mawes harbour.

It is an absolutely superb location where you can really relax, unwind and just watch the boats go by! Located in a very quiet corner of St Mawes, Seagulls has the benefit of views across the river from a number of rooms. The terraced mature garden leads down to a riverside footpath which takes you along the foreshore to The Priory. The centre of the village with its pubs and shops is approximately a 10 minute walk away along various short cut paths or about 15 minutes walk along the beautiful seafront. You can hire boats from right next door at Freshwater Boatyard.

Please be aware that Seagulls is an older style property that might not have the level of fixtures and fittings as some of our other properties. However it does have the most fantastic position and views across the river. Please see all our photographs and our video tour for an accurate view of the property.


Ground Floor: The hallway leads to the kitchen with a separate dining area for eight people. The large lounge has great views of the river with a good range of sofas, easy chairs, wood burning stove & patio doors leading onto a terrace which gives even better water views. The bedrooms consist of a 5ft double with stunning views, a twin, a bunk room for two children and a further room with a single and a "pull out" to provide beds for eight. There is a family bathroom with over bath shower and a cloakroom with WC & hand basin. Through a door is a further triple room with views & bathroom with WC.

Lower Ground Floor: Stairs lead down to the utility room with a washing machine & fridge / freezer. There is a shower room with WC.

Exterior: There are terraced gardens, patios with external furniture & BBQ facilities.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic long weekend for 3 families and a dog,staying at Seagulls. Plenty of parking in a quiet position at the end of a small lane. Large rooms decorated and furnished in a comfortable, homely way.

View from the lounge was stunning, overlooking the river with plenty of boats and birds to watch! A large tiered garden with lawn at the bottom large enough for family games. Gate leading out onto the path which followed the river. About 15 minute stroll in to St Mawes.

Well equipped kitchen and dining room with table big enough to seat everyone. 2 bathrooms ( 1 with walking shower) and extra separate toilet was ideal for a large party. Beds were comfy with a double room, 2 twins a triple and a bunk room.( The bunk beds are really only suitable for children or small adults.)

Plenty of outside seating and a built in bbq which we made use of as the weather was gorgeous!

Only criticism was not the fault of the house but other visitors! It’s the responsibility of guests to put bins out at the end of the drive. As there were 5 bins full when we arrived this obviously hadn’t been done for a while! A note on the gate does tell you this but maybe needs to be clearer! Also we luckily put them out on the Sunday evening of a bank holiday as they were collected early on the Monday. ( unusual to have bank holiday collections).

I would highly recommend staying at Seagulls. You really won’t want to leave.

Seagulls - beautiful location, good for a large family group, in need of some sprucing up

  • 4 of 5

Seagulls is a beautifully positioned house overlooking the Percueil River out the back of St Mawes, but still walkable back into the village via a handy footpath shortcut or along the main road above Summers Beach. The views from all of the rooms are lovely and watching the changing light and tide on the river is one of the pleasures of staying there. Seagulls is a very suitable house for a large family group and we really appreciated all being able to be together. There is ample accommodation for 11 people and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking and serving for large numbers. The decor does feel outdated and could do with some sprucing up - but that is a minor concern when staying in such a beautiful location when there is so much walking and exploring to be done outside of the house. With 5 bedrooms, there is not one bath or shower room per bedroom (1 shower room, 1 bathroom and 1 separate shower and 2 separate toilets), so we did experience some queuing in the mornings. Wifi service was good and we had no issues with 4 children all being on their devices at once (not to mention the adults too!). Overall it is a spacious family home suitable for accommodating large family groups. We had a lovely stay there, on what was probably our 60th annual family visit to St Mawes at Easter!

Relaxing time

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoy staying at Seagulls and will visit again. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Whilst not overly modernised and made over like so many properties in St Mawes that is a big part of Seagulls appeal. We love it!

Pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location. Very peaceful cottage which was as expected. Whilst we expected the garden to be stepped with a path, you will need to be careful in the wet as the paving is incredible slippy. The decor was fine and the condition of furniture was better than previous reviews commented. Main bathroom was in excellent condition and shower was a delight.

Comfort we have rated as good, plenty of space, lounge was large and comfortable and was not cramped at all. Only issue on comfort was the beds were not to our taste in terms of hardness.

Even if you take your own comfort deckchairs the patio is not flat to be warned however very delightful to sit reading or looking at the water.

The dogs loved the garden and kept them very fit - playing hide and seek with balls.

We did not use much of the house or utility so cannot comment on those facilities.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely wonderful location and stunning views. We were able to get a mooring very easily as the boatyard 2 minutes away.

The house itself is a no frills family holiday house but more than adequate for our two families. The kitchen was well equipped and had most things that we needed.

Bathrooms seem to have all been updated fairly recently and hot water is available at all times.

One thing to note is that although it's usually standard to provide bathroom towels they are not provided here does note that in the info from the letting agents but I failed to see that and only took beach towels

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house with plenty of space, perfect for our extended family boating holiday. Waking up to views across the Percuil estuary every morning we enjoyed the peace of the out of town location but with easy access to the facilities of St Mawes. The downstairs utility was really useful for storing boat clobber and dealing with the catch of the day! A brilliant family holiday house.

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.
