    “The small bedroom was damp.”

    Other than that cottage was very nice

    Other than that cottage was very nice

    - Mrs Holdsworth, July 2021

    Thank you for your feedback. We were surprised that you felt the small bedroom was damp, as this has not been mentioned in any previous feedback. The owner has confirmed that the small bedroom isn't damp, it is condensation, which occurs if the property isn't ventilated (windows opened or left on a catch)  Apart from this we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage.

About the location


Falmouth 16 miles via car ferry, 3 miles via passenger ferry; Truro 10.5 miles via car ferry, 18 miles by road.

St Mawes is a small fishing village situated on the Roseland Peninsula, part of Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is surrounded by rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush countryside and has a notable historic castle guarding the entrance to the River Fal. The village is a haven for boating and yachting with many events and functions taking place and of course the local produce is outstanding, with local pubs and restaurants serving delicious seafood dishes throughout the year. Nearby there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy including walks, watersports and boat trips. Across from the harbour is the town of Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, the amenities will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views.
