    • “We were unable to get hold of caretaker despite messages left and Texts but managed to get hold of the owner but were hampered by poor reception. On site communication was only thing that put a damper on holiday break, as Result of which we needed to go thorough yourselves to make contact with owner. Lovely cottage well located. Clean and tidy and in good repair. Recommended.”

    Mr Sawle, Southampton, November 2018

    • “Fantastic cottage in excellent location. Walked from the cottage so didn’t even take the car out for 5 days. Interesting last night with the arrival of Storm Callum with the waves surging up the alley and reaching the lounge window. Friendly village with all the amenities you need including a butchers. Watch House food on our last night was amazing. Carne & Towan beach great for dogs when the tide is out. Took the ferry to Place & Falmouth which extended the option for walks as well. St Mawes hotel next door was very convenient & they have a hidden cinema which you need to book. Staff were really friendly. Overall great place lucky with the weather at this time of year as shorts all week. Oh & one of the machines in the car park now takes cards which is much more handy. A weeks parking was £30 so you need a lot of coins if the card machine is not working but i think good value.”

    Miss Allekar, Uxbridge, October 2018

    • “You would choose this house for the view and central location; two features that are normally hard to find!”

    Mrs Turner, Uttoxeter, August 2018

    • “The television in the sitting room is confusing there is a Sky remote but doesn’t work. This was our fourth visit to the cottage and whilst it’s location is perfect it would benefit from an internal refurbishment - a smaller dining table and fewer chairs for example.The garden table and chairs are in need of repainting and new loungers and cushions would be good. Overall the cottage is very good.”

    Mrs Lewis, Coleford, June 2018

    • “Second visit to St Mawes with HelpfulHolidays , fantastic again!”

    Mr Hume, EASTBOURNE, June 2018

    • “We enjoyed a supper 2 weeks holiday at Pier Cottage, very well placed, well equipped, very comfortable, with good outside space. An ideal position for visiting lots of beaches, Falmouth, Truro with not using the car, instead using Fal River ferry services on time running extremely frequently from 8-00am till 18-00pm then a water Taxie if required. Facilities in St Mawes very good, small supermarket always well stocked, Fresh bread, cousants, selection of cakes every day, butches selling excellent produce, paper shop/post office good places to eat, super fish & chips from the watch house. Ample parking.”

    Mr Pooley, NOTTINGHAM, June 2018

    • “Parking is a bit tricky. For us it was most convenient to pay £6 for 24hours each day on local car park, you can pay £30 for a week, but you need that much cash for machine as there is not a card pay option! Outside the front door you can use 30 min park between 8am - 6pm or single yellow parking 6pm - 10am.. but it has to be said often in use. But you soon get used to the parking shuffle and car park is less than 5min walk. Although dog friendly accommodation, the town is less so for dog walking. You can use small beach in harbour at low tide and car park field below castle (payment machine not in use May 2018). Neither the recreation ground nor beaches allow dogs. Brilliant dog friendly beach at Porthcurin with excellent Hidden Hut cafe... parking on very steep hill down to beach. Recycling in car park, doesn't do plastic containers, only bottles.”

    Mrs Deacon, Telford, May 2018

    • “Fantastic location in a beautiful harbour setting. Plenty of local places of interest within easy reach”

    Mr Saveall, Dronfield, May 2018

    • “the cottage could have been cleaner”
