A very comfortable, well equipped cottage in a beautiful Roseland village. Lorick Cottage has everything you need for your stay - very comfy beds, lovely powerful shower, pretty fully enclosed patio garden and stuff for the beach. Even visiting dogs are catered for, with dog towels, bowls, throws for the sofas, toys, even a bed for them! The cottage is spotlessly clean, with antibacterial spray and hand gels left for you to use during your stay. My only suggestion, and it's a really minor one, would be the need for some bigger mugs for tea drinkers! Those provided, whilst really beautif...more
What a lovely cottage ! We were met on arrival by the owner who explained where everything was and how it worked The cottage is in a beautiful idyllic pastoral setting surrounded by fields and birdsong, if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of busy coastal villages at busy times of the year but only a 15 minute drive away, then this is the cottage for you
This is the second year we have stayed at Fairview. The house is spotlessly clean, everything works, and has all you need for a family holiday - great location and plenty of space for everyone. We will return.
We just enjoyed a lovely week in this beautiful house. It was comfortable in every room and provided a fantastic backdrop to a week with our family . The views are amazing ……and that walk up the hill got easier as the week progressed. Parking was tricky , but the main car park for the week was reasonable. I would absolutely recommend this house …..we were sad to leave .
Chymor is an elegant seafront house in the village of St Mawes. It is well equipped and tastefully furnished throughout.The standard of finish in the bathrooms ,kitchen and laundry was high and of excellent quality and reliability.The bedrooms provided tranquil,comfortable and restful areas to sleep and unwind. I particularly liked the selection of books available to read. The outdoor areas both front and back offered wonderful opportunities to enjoy the sunshine and the stunning views. A handsome property in which to enjoy the many pleasures of the Roseland Peninsula.
The house is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. Bedrooms are comfortable, great location, we will definitely be back soon.
Sloop is a lovely apartment with a fabulous view. It had everything we needed and a lot more. A very comfortable and clean place to stay. We were very lucky to have a dry, sunny and warm week in mid October which made the holiday perfect. Portscatho is an excellent place to be based with a convenient local grocery store. The King Harry Ferry is less than 15 minutes away which saves a lot of travelling time visiting The Lizard area and further west. The Roseland Peninsula is beautiful. We will definitely be back.
We have just returned from a week's holiday at The Wickets. We enjoyed it so much. It is beautifully furnished and light and airy with views over the sea. We stayed with my sister and her husband so the two en suites were ideal. We took our dog too and it was great to be able to dry her before going into the bungalow. We enjoyed the sunny front garden too and would definitely like to return. It was great to have a separate utility area too.
We had the most fantastic week at The Thatchings. It is in a very quiet village set only a few minutes walk away from the coastal path, and literally has walks all around from your front door. The cottage itself is cosy, yet luxurious. Bedding and sofas of particular high quality. It was the perfect retreat at the end of the day, and really lovely that dogs are welcomed in such a special place.
Having just had another holiday in this accommodation I have to say that the property is in a marvelous position to offer exceptional views. It is well equipped and extremely comfortable, providing everything one could require. Another bonus is parking for two vehicles. It offers really good value for money.
Lovely place everything you could possibly want very comfortable with some lovely touches would definitely recommend
Our 6th visit to this property, which is ideally positioned literally next to the sea / beach. Even on poor days there is fascination in watching the state of the sea and sky. The property is warm and comfortable with everything you need. Some things in the house are showing their age so hopefully the owners will think about doing some sprucing up now that their rental income has resumed following a fallow Covid closure period. We will be returning in 2022 so that's endorsement enough!
This was our second stay at Pen an Garth and it certainly won’t be our last. I cannot really fault anything with the house. It’s light and airy, has been equipped with every possible utensil etc and more. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the harbour and shops which is very convenient. The parking for one car is great , as parking in St Mawes is not the best especially at peak times. The house was left very clean for us and the team at portscatho holidays were excellent, they dealt with any queries promptly and in a friendly manner. Another nice touch was the welcome package. We ca...more
The house is lovely and was incredibly clean - the cleanest holiday rental we’ve had in 25 years. A classy stay. Kitchen well equipped and it was easy to live in for a week.
Lovely, peaceful location within walking distance from a great pub. Perfect for dogs with a paddock to exercise them and great that it has stone floors. The Barn was comfortable with all we needed. The upstairs is a mezzanine so a bit noisy for those sleeping upstairs. It would be fantastic to have a bit more local information like walks etc although the owner was helpful, living next door. A lovely stay and would definitely stay again.
Our second stay in this lovely cottage. Everything as lovely as we remembered only comment /suggestion - a recycle bin it was cop26 while we were staying and so highlighted the lack of recycling even more! We took all ours back to Windsor... we are booked next year and already miss that view!
Excellent property which we shared with adult family and their babies. It was lovely just to be at the house, or to walk down into St Mawes. We didn't need to use the car all week which added to the holiday relaxation.
Lovely house, beautifully clean. Late ‘check in’ time and early ‘check out’ time, which is a little disappointing as the cost of these properties is at the higher end, and you are losing a whole day. Same comment for stripping all your own beds at the end of a holiday when you’re trying to vacate early. Aside from that, peaceful location, comfortable stay.
This was our fourth visit to Tregwylan and we had another lovely week. The location and views are amazing, with an ever changing scene as the boats pass. It’s nice to see the out door kitchen that has been added since our last stay, however, on this visit we were disappointed by the large amount of pet hairs over the furniture, floor and cushions. We hoovered several times during our stay in an attempt to remove the pet hairs. The TV in the master bedroom would not switch on and we found the TV in the lounge overly complicated as there was a combination of 3 remote controllers needed, along w...more
We had a lovely week at Petroc. It’s situated very close to the harbour and everything you need in St Mawes: pub, restaurant, shops etc. It is a short but steep walk to the front. My 70+ mother in law made it up and down each day but it was hard going. Property was clean and comfortable and had lovely views of the water from the first floor balcony. Car park space is tight if you have a big car but it’s close to the main car park in town too. Overall a great stay and would go to this property again.
It is the view of sea and sail that makes this property so appealing, but it is also in the heart of St Mawes whilst still peaceful. It is equipped to a high standard with quality. The presence of next door’s balcony so close is a slight intrusion, but mostly because of the need to close the main bedroom curtains for the sake of privacy, when it would be so much more pleasing to leave them open to the view. Be a little wary of the parking place. Our car is long and we felt if we parked outside the house a neighbour would be trapped. It is a very tight manoeuvre.
We have stayed in Portscatho many times in various properties, Gull Rock view is one of the nicest. The sea views are excellent.A very comfortable property to stay in.
This is the second time we have stayed at Foretop and it lived up to expectations . Ideally located for everything Roseland has to offer .
An excellent and superb location for such a beautiful lodge. Very clean and equipped with every possible facility. Can highly recommend this lodge and will certainly be returning.
We're stayed at Pengerein several times and always look forward to returning. It's in a great location at the edge of the village with lovely uninterrupted views over Gerrans Bay. It is beautifully decorated and equipped and couldn't be more comfortable. It will sleep 4 (one double, one twin) but I think it would feel a bit crowded if that was 4 adults. Perfect for couples or those with small children.
We have been coming to Portscatho for years - this is our first time in More Gwyns and the the first time I have booked the same property again for the following year whilst still on holiday! Great for a big family of teenagers / young people and their partners especially the two sitting rooms Liked the position in Parc-an-Dillon Road as it was on the way to Porthcurnick Beach and a bit out of the village - which is great for people who don't like the crowds but love Portscatho Highly recommend this property
Very attractive cottage in peaceful location. Kitchen facilities are limited but adequate for 2. Might be challenging if you had 2 children as well.Lovely garden for sitting out and for the dog to run around.Good walking alongside the river estuary and in the area generally.
The house is good for 6 (plus toddler) and the location on the Lugger is ideal. Slight niggles regarding the lack of towels - bath, tea towels and bath mat (large bathroom). Upstairs bathroom is 'tired' and would benefit from a shower and separate loo. However, it is very comfortable and we all enjoyed our stay.
My husband and I, plus our dog Rosie enjoyed our week's holiday exploring St Mawes and surrounding areas. Accommodation was ideally placed for fishing, walking along the coast and about a ten minute walk into town. Trefusis is a pleasant and peaceful little annexe, which is next to the owners bed and breakfast. Inside has been thoughtfully designed but unfortunately we found the bed rather uncomfortable. There's a small patio area outside, with a pretty little garden but dog owners need to be mindful as the garden is not secure and the road can be busy at times.
We simply love Little Hill and have returned many times and for good reason. The views are breathtaking, always changing and the envy of parses simply Both bedrooms are snug and extremely comfortable,the sitting room is spacious and a special addition to the property. We hugely appreciate the parking space, especially as in St Mawes these can be difficult to come by A true home away from home and we very much look forward to spending our first Christmas there!
A well appointed and comfortable property. Even though staying in October the property was easy to heat. A very tranquil and charming location.
Very enjoyable stay at the Hermitage. With super views of estuary. A lovely quirky cottage to stay and completely unwind and relax. St Mawes is a charming, and enchanting place to stay in Cornwall. I would certainly recommend it.
Although we have been to Cornwall and stayed at different locations and accommodations many times, this was the first time to stay in St. Mawes and stayed at Little Venn. The accommodation was very nicely decorated with lovely paintings and furniture. We received a lovely welcome set of gifts. The place was equipped with everything we needed and it was professionally cleaned. We could tell the owner and the care taker of the property put a lot of efforts to welcome guests. The location of the property was perfect - less than a minute to the nearest beach and close to all the shops and ...more
Spindrift is an extremely well equipped and splendidly located house, and was an excellent base for our family of three generations and a dog, with everything we needed. Many thoughtful touches include flowers, dog treats and towels, and binoculars to enjoy the view. The principal rooms have ever-changing views down to the village, and across the estuary to St Anthony Head and Carrick Roads. The beaches, crab baguettes, pasties and other delights of St Mawes are accessed via the path through the extensive, but steep, garden. A downside of its elevated position is its exposure to wind and rain....more
An enjoyable stay at Old Bakehouse. We stayed for two weeks and had the most amazing time. Great location so handy to go for a pint every day :)
Great location in St Mawes . Clean tidy property with nice light feel to it. Downstairs bedrooms smelt / felt a bit damp and no microwave a bit of a pain. Overall lovely property in a great location.
The location of this property is amazing. It turned into a lazy holiday as I spent most of my time on the balcony enjoying the views of the harbour and the activity out on the River Fal. Perfect for us. We will be booking this property again shortly!
We loved our stay at Pennygillam early November (and got lucky with the weather). Just a few mins walk from beautiful St Mawes center. Lounge and Main bedroom have a great sea view. Good bedding in main bedroom (the only one we used). We loved kitchen with AGA oven. Just missing a micro wave. Also pity wood fire is not allowed but very nice stay overall.
Stunning views, very well equipped, quiet, easy reach of all village amenities, plenty of parking. We loved returning to Trevu, and hope to again soon.
Perfect location. Two minutes walk to Tavern Beach, which was perfect for swimming. Less than 5 minutes walk in the other direction were the many facilities of the village. Charming views from several windows on the lovely open plan upper floor. Bedrooms downstairs were very comfortable and well appointed. Great to have a parking space and also a utility/drying room. Just one thing which requires a bit of attention was the third bathroom which was a bit pongy so we avoided using it.
We love this house, particularly its location near to the village and the coast paths but most of all the views of the sea and the harbour from the main room and the two front bedrooms, listening to the sea at night, and sitting on the terrace enjoying the view whilst having breakfast/lunch/evening meal or just a cup of tea or a glass of wine! On a more mundane level, the house has everything you could want (perhaps some salad servers?!) and it was an especially nice and welcoming surprise to turn up on an unseasonably cold wet day on 21 May and find the heating on and the house lovely and war...more
Cottage was ideal for us - 2 adults, 2 young children. Super comfy beds / easy to relax, read and watch movies. Spent most of the time out, but pleased with the storage ready for Sandy boots / coats etc. Kitchen well stocked. We always book with Portscatho Holidays, but disappointed we didn’t have the usual welcome tea and biscuits. It is always wrapped anyway, so shouldn’t be a COVID preventive reason. After a long journey, it is usually a very welcoming site! Staff super professional and attentive during the booking. Thank you! Katherine
We had a very enjoyable week staying in Kelsey. It is an extremely well equipped property for a holiday let and everything was very clean and comfortable. It was very cosy sitting in front of the log burner in the evenings. One or two negative comments were that the shower would be very difficult to access for anyone with a disability, this should be mentioned in the details. Also we noticed that the upstairs windows didn't have any security latches; this could be a real danger for guests with young children as the windows are very low. The bed was very soft for our liking and a better qu...more
Last minute booking at the end of August. There were only two of us but so glad we treated ourselves to this place that sleeps 6! Right on Tavern Beach so you can pop down on the beach with a cuppa or a bottle of wine when the tide is out or literally step out of the door and take a dip at high tide. Easy to park the car whilst you unload and only a short walk to the car park once you have parked up for the week. Master bedroom was delightful, comfortable bed and the view whilst sitting up with a cup of tea was pure bliss. Leave the windows and blinds open and you can hear the sea & see the s...more
Another thoroughly enjoyable stay at St Mawes. We’ve been visiting for 20years now and never get tired of it. Sail Loft was another gem of a cottage - beautifully set and great location.
We have stayed at 6 Spinnaker a number of times and love it. Fabulous views and very central in St Mawes. Flat is well appointed and equipped and very comfortable.
Buckingham Cottage is ideally placed in St Mawes , moments from the sea front, enjoying some sea views from real windows and convenient for shops and restaurants. Despite being right in the centre of town the cottage is very quiet and peaceful through the night time.The cottage is very well equipped and everything just worked first time, you are not lacking anything. The cottage was very clean with good quality fresh bedding and towels provided. For two or three people its perfect but a larger group may find the single bathroom and toilet a restriction. I would certainly stay here again.
Great stay in conveniently situated house. Only a couple of grouses - didn't like the hectoring tone of the messages/notices from Portscatho Holidays with threats to deduct from deposit if not followed. Amused that we were told to put our black bags in a bin for a cottage nowhere near us which caused us some concern until the man moving the bin told us to put them in the Lan Y Mor bin! Some of the thermostatic valves on the radiators are sticking - most importantly the one on the bathroom radiator which wouldn't turn off and was scalding hot - and very close to the loo. The balcony was ...more
This cottage is well equipped & centrally placed in St Mawes so everything is in easy walking distance. Luckily it has a parking space but finding it was tricky, ignore the satnav and drive up the hill opposite the entrance to the Idle Rocks Hotel, bear right at the top around a tight corner then straight ahead, go past last cottage on the right & it opens into the parking area for 5 cars, it's on the back wall. The harbour and beach are very picturesque and get busy with ferry arrivals from Falmouth. Da Barra serve great coffee and cakes. Do walk up to the Castle, the views across the Fal are...more
Perfect location, an excellent terrace with views to the bay. The bungalow is pet friendly but not pet secure fortunately we have a dog that does not roam. Everything was clean, lovely fluffy towels. The kitchen needs a revamp but provided everything we needed. We hope to return very soon.
The location was perfect- easy to walk to shops and with a beautiful view over the sea.The flat was clean newly refurbished and comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen very well appointed. Bathrooms and showers worked well.Very quiet surroundings just the waves.Parking place is unusual in St Mawes. Also right by the sea so no steep slopes. Easy to find as well. Would love to go again some day.
Would certainly return to this area, excellent location! A well equipped cottage. Some updates needed eg a new fridge as it’s very noisy and a lick of paint as decoration looking tired. Otherwise a super place to stay!
Meeresblick is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped and furnished. It has lived-in feel as soon as you walk in, unlike some holiday homes. We would have spent more time in the garden if the weather had been warmer. There isn't much in the immediate vicinity, but there's a good cafe just down the road and St Just churchyard is always worth a visit. St Mawes can be reached on foot along a coastal path on quite a long, but pleasant, walk. Most days out will involve a drive, but Meeresblick is close to the King Harry Ferry for trips west. There are several local beaches not too far away an...more
Well equipped lodge, lovely view out over the lawn and to the sea. Only gripe was that we found the TV a bit confusing to work!
Our third stay in this dog-friendly cottage. The best location and superb value for money. We will be back again in April.
Beds uncomfortable, dust and cobwebs very evident, tired decor and furnishings. Light switch surrounds and Tv etc remote controls were dirty and sticky - very unpleasant to find! Did not realise from the property advertising that I wold have "others" in a flat above which created some unwanted noise. As a property it works for two people but needs plenty of TLC to raise the standard to that of its original purpose.
This is a very comfortable house in a lovely place with sun in front and behind and a short step down to the main road. We had a great time and will definitely come back.
We always love staying in Tavern House. It's such a beautiful location with splendid views. Perfect for popping down to Tavern Beach. The children's beds have been updated and are much better. However, the kitchen and bathroom are very tired.
I am slightly disabled and Rails by the Stairs would be a help. Also a handle in the Shower would be good. The Bath cold tap was difficult to close, apart from that everything was fine. Kind regards Andrew Turner
We found the flat very comfortable and the view from the Lounge and Kitchen windows are absolutely stunning over Portscatho bay. The flat was warm and cosy with excellent double glazing and electric heaters. The price reflects the fact that it is not luxurious but is perfectly comfortable. Indeed the Settee and chair in the Lounge were a lot more comfortable than some of the expensive leather seats we,ve found in more expensive accommodation sometimes. You do have to be fit to tackle all the steps leading from the car parking area to the rear, but dropping off from the front is easier. All in...more
Fabulous house in a great location. Everything that we wanted was in the house. Nice to have parking spaces and the weather this year helped too. Lovely sitting out area that catches the sun for most of the day. Shame we couldn’t have the house cleaned at least once for our 3 week stay. I know it is Covid times but we were very happy to be out of the house when the cleaners came. Also it will be nice when we can get back to not having to be out of the house at 9 and allowed to be in before 5. It means we lose a whole day if only staying for 1 week. Great service otherwise. Nigel
We loved the location-close to everything and not too hilly! The beds were comfortable & we noted the property had had an update. I think the back terrace could be made more useable with permanent furniture. That said, we loved sitting at the front of the house. Neighbours were lovely!
Stunning views,very well equipped, plenty of space we stayed as two couples. Only thing really missing is a shower in family bathroom.
