Bungalow was lovely everything you need in kitchen very clean and cosy couldn't fault anything enclosed garden for dogs The garden was lovely with its palms and trees. Lamorran Gardens were beautiful. The weather was perfect for two weeks. Perfect holiday
We loved our stay in Sloop. The property was clean and comfortable. Light and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The view was stunning and just a short walk to the beach. It was perfect!! We will definitely book it again.
I have been visiting St Mawes for the last 50 years, as a child and now with my own family, my wife and three children. The first steps into Pennygillam were a sheer joy, expectations superceded and charm personified. We have previously stayed at other places which were all enjoyed but nothing truly had given us the wonderful feel that we all felt with this property. It has charm and great ambience combined with all the amenities and space to ensure a family could only be thoroughly content. The kitchen and sitting room were beautifully laid out and furnished with great attention to detail....more
This is a lovely place to stay with sea views and a big window to sit in front and watch the sea, if you don't fancy going out. Its a very modern, comfortable, clean and tidy place. We had an unexpected problem on arrival but the customer service was excellent. I would highly recommend Mckenize to anyone.
This is an excellent property in a great location close to the beach and local pub and shop. The house was very clean and decorated to a high standard. It was a lovely place to spend 2 weeks. The area is beautiful and extremely relaxing, I will definitely be back Thanks to all
We took a short break as a quick getaway before Christmas. Harbour View enjoys such a fantastic setting and given we took this break just to chill it was great just to do that and spend time just looking out of the window. It's a really comfortable home with nice modern fixtures and underfloor heating which was really appreciated. We'd definitely look to return at some point.
We have had a great holiday at Treveasey. The weather was perfect and the location dreamy...haven't been to Cornwall for a long time and never to this area so it turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The apartment is well equipped, well looked after and comfortable. The garden has views out to the sea on one side and a wooded area on the other with strategically place seating. Lots of local walking possibilities, the coastal footpath is on the doorstep, great beaches to visit, and good food ...The Hidden Hut and new pizza place at Portscatho [Courgette, lemon and Feta!!!]
Chymor continues to delight us each year with it's splendid location on the sea front and wonderful views across the bay. The house is hard to fault and provides everything needed for a comfortable and stylish stay. We would have preferred the rear garden grass to have been cut before our arrival but the rental team were quick to response to our request. The only elements which we would improve are: to have a larger mirror in the main bedroom; to find a way if having a larger hand basin in the shower room.
This cottage was very central and really comfortable for us. We were unsure where best to stay and the staff at Portscatho Holidays were really helpful with their suggestions and advice. We were just metres from the quay which was ideal and the accommodation we could see had been recently refurbished to a good standard. Beds and sofas are very good. Great weather for October and some nice walks along the coast.
Beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean . We will definitely be going ag inain. Could use a bigger television but that's a minor niggle
We found The Old Forge comfortable,cosy and well placed for exploring the area. The well thought out conversion has been carried out to a high standard giving a light cheerful interior. Although close to the road there is little traffic and a number of convenient walks from the doorstep. We,and the dog,would be happy to return in the future.
We chose this house to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary with all our immediate family. We know St Mawes very well so we knew that the location would suit everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and all generations had a wonderful time. We were aided and abetted with wonderful weather and sunsets + catching up with old friends. A minor point, the lock box was tricky to use Thank you, Sandie Boocock
Fab cottage and we had a brilliant stay. Only 2 minor complaints: The double bed mattress had a big dip in the middle and could have been a little firmer. No dishwasher tablets or bin liners
We have stayed several times so clearly we like it.However very little has been done over the years & it is looking tired.The beds still have issues that again have been there for years.There needs to be a higher level of cleaning eg pull out cushions & hoover up crumbs particularly round the dining table. Overlooking the bay & harbour is the real plus point.The seals,birds & even basking sharks have entertained us over the years. Look forward to next time
Moorings is a beautifully located elegant house. It is extremely well equipped, very comfortable and has a gorgeous garden. The views from the house and garden are breathtaking. A wonderful place for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. St Mawes village and harbour are a short, scenic walk away.
The appartment was really good .We spent a lovely week in sept. Its a very steep slope down to the front door and being of limited mobility found it difficult.but once inside its all on one level.We were lucky that we went late season , and managed to park ok but in high season parking could be a problem.
We have stayed at Pengerein several times and it has always been really enjoyable. We like walking so its location is ideal for the cost path and St Anthonys Head. You can walk to Place ferry for St Mawes and then on to Falmouth. Usually a fish and chip van on one day just up the road (not this year} and there is also a pizza van on Wednesday which is excellent. Will be booking again.
A fabulous house in a superb location. Very comfortable and clean, with the most wonderful views. Close to all the amenities in St Mawes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return.
great flat - lovely views and plenty of space. loved the mod cons - sonos speakers etc and was a great location. would definitely go again!
This lovely little cottage is located right on the waterfront with the most fantastic view across to St Anthonys. We did not appreciate just how good the views would be until we arrived! The cottage is very nicely furnished and was very comfortable.for us. Just a lovely short walk to the quay and some good restaurants.
We enjoyed our stay in St Mawes, helped by some beautiful weather. Verbena is superbly situated overlooking the estuary. The house is quite unusual with an interesting mix of furnishing. The en-suite is probably in need of a refurb but the house is generally well appointed.
The cottage was situated in a very good location near to the quay and shops. It was spotlessly clean.The bed was super comfortable and the shower was really powerful. The kitchen was well equipped. However, we didn't like the inflexibility of the electric heating system. Some evening were quite chilly but you couldn't just turn it on. Also the boiler made a terrible noise about 4am every morning which woke me up. The sofas were not very comfortable. They were quite small and if there had been 4 of us in the cottage it would have been a bit of a squeeze. The soft furnishings in th...more
Great property I would definitely stay here again. Sail Loft is a lovely, spacious and comfortable property with great outdoor space. The living room furnishings are a little tired but very comfy. The view from the deck is spectacular. The location is amazing and we had a wonderful week making the most of all the different ferries and the beautiful countryside. Thanks!
We stayed for one week in late September 2018. The property was well maintained and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, everything you would need. Instructions booklets very helpful. Only one improvement suggested would be for the use of canvas bags for recycling, as the recycling facilities in St Mawes car park are limited in what you can recycle, when we know through Cornwall council you can recycle more. This is having stayed in St Mawes before and we recycled a lot more.
Good base in St Mawes. Bathroom is a bit cramped if you are 6ft or over. Very limited mobile phone signal and WiFi not accessible during our stay. Kitchen well equipped and bottle of bubbly for the New Year was a thoughtful touch.
Stay here you won't be disappointed, pub up the hill, great dog walks. This is a huge property, kitchen has everything you will need. Very quiet, lovey property.
Cannot argue with the views but feeling a little tired. Radiator in main bedroom did not work, but we moved the electric fire up there to take off the chill. Back room could do with curtains as the Venetian blinds are not the best. Shower dial was missing some thing and both that and hot water tap in bathroom were stiff to switch off. To be fair, we didn't bring this up at the time as it was not going to spoil the holiday. We booked for the view and were lucky with fairly mild weather. I am sure, should we have needed to, portscatho holidays would have been swift to amend. We were missing a te...more
Great sea views from the back of the house, bedroom, sitting room and garden. Garden was a suntrap at breakfast time. Very conveniently situated for the town. Parking space was very handy.
This house has a lovely feeling about it and has the most wonderful location on the seafront. It's very spacious and we found it clean and tidy. Portscatho Holidays were helpful and prompt in dealing with any little issues. My suggestions on things that could be improved (and it all depends whether you think these sorts of things will bother you or not): the sofas and chairs in the sitting room are beyond their best by some years (decades!). There are throws over them so they didn't look awful but they are not particularly comfortable; we felt the mattress (king size in front bedroom) could d...more
The apartment was very well presented. It had all the essentials to make our stay very enjoyable, especially when we decided to eat in.
We stayed with our dog Barley we loved the view from the house, just perfect watching the sun going down in the evening with a G & T in hand sitting on the deck, enclosed so safe for the dog. Barley liked the safe and secure garden and gave the cottage full marks, we used the extendible dining table for a meeting which worked really well, slept like a log in the comfy beds. We cant wait to come back to this cottage and this lovely part of Cornwall.
it is the third time we have stopped at the stables beautiful location we would definitely liked to visit again
We stayed at Brooks Cottage last year and absolutely fell in love with it so booked it straight away back then for this October half term but I was a little disappointed at the lack of cleanliness and things weren't quite as good as last time. It was as if it hadn't been looked after for a while and a number of things weren't working properly. I don't think anyone has stayed in it for a while as it wasn't very clean. Cobwebs everywhere and floor dirty. My feet were filthy from walking around bare foot. I found on arrival a dirty plastic cup sitting on the windowsill in the downstairs toilet. T...more
We really loved staying in Castle Cottage. The beds are very comfy and lovely bathrooms . The living kitchen area has been done really well and a pleasure to sit in over looking the harbour . We would definately stay again. It can be a bit noisy late at night and first thing for deliveries but we do keep windows open so closing them does help. It wouldn’t stop us staying in this lovely well kept home again
We had a lovey holiday at Tyg Wyn and there are some fantastic aspects to the house including the beautiful bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms and big kitchen. However, we struggled to find enough sensible sized glasses, plates that weren't chipped or plastic, and decent mugs. This is so easy to get right with a trip to Ikea and some fresh glasses etc but felt that the collection of garage sherry glasses, some disposable plastic ones and a couple of pint glasses from the local pub let the place down a bit. We loved the homely feel to the place with nice furniture, paintings on the walls, jigsaws...more
Great little apartment in a fantastic sea side location perfect for walking the cliff paths and enjoying Portscato's pubs and shops etc. It was lovely and warm, the heating was on for us when we arrived as requested. We enjoyed staying there and had a great time. The apartment has amazing sea views which were slightly spoilt because the windows needed cleaning. However this didnt spoil our stay.
We spent a most enjoyable time in the very spacious Parc an Bounder. The barn conversion has been done to a high standard with tasteful decoration, and a good degree of luxury. As everything was new it was very special. We know the area well, so we were able to enjoy some of our favourite walks and visit places we know. We found the bed very hard and unforgiving, but our friends were blissfully comfortable. Maybe a mattress topper would be a useful option to have available. The fridge is very small for a family of four for a week. A tall upright fridge would be a very suitable addition....more
We love going to Lorraine! The views are wonderful, from the main bedroom, conservatory and garden, there is plenty of space for six people and it is great for entertaining.
Wonderfully spacious, beautifully decorated cottage. Fully intend to return during school holidays again. Justine was especially helpful. Thank you.
I love coming back to this cosy property, it is like home from home. Being able to wake-up to the sea views day after day is heaven. It is in a good location and provides a peaceful haven if you want to get away from the crowds with just enough amenities close to hand.
It could be useful to point out the bathroom and loo /ground floor.Potentially inconvenient at night for some residents.Large sunny well-lit dining room ideal for entertaining. Charming sitting room. Bedrooms with wonderful sea views.
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is fabulous, we had everything we needed. It was easy to book, all the information was there in good time that we needed.
St mawes lovely place to visit, cottage in good location .the only down size to our visit is that the cottage needs little referb .would definitley stay again-:)
Mizzen Top was an excellent choice for my wife and myself. The location was superb (a few steps up the path from the street, Marine Parade, but worth it) we enjoyed having our meals at the small table by the front window with that spectacular view. The living room and kitchen are very spacious and stylish. Upstairs the main bedroom overlooks the bay, the bed is very comfortable and the decor uncluttered and appropriate for the setting. The second bedroom is to the back of the property, with 2 twin beds it would be fine for kids (or adults). The bathroom is fully tiled with a shower over the tu...more
Lovely house and location. Have dogs and could do with a better description of the garden as not all fenced off and access to neighbours easily available. Presume neighbours have rights of way over the garden but again not clear. As others have said, the use of the aga as the sole available hob in a house of this size is not good. The cooker was temperamental and if there were 8 in the house it would have been very frustrating. The immediate neighbour spent the whole week with power tools which made sitting out noisy. Realise this is not something anyone has control over!
A delightful and charming cottage in a quiet location, attractively furnished and comfortable with everything needed for your stay including a large TV should the weather be poor. It is set in a secluded, attractive terraced garden with patio table and chairs but it is worth noting that the steep steps down from the lane might be tricky for the less mobile. Ruan Lanihorne is a very peaceful village at the head of the river and has a lovely church, an excellent pub, lots of good walks and is close to Pendower Beach, Portscatho and St Mawes.
This is our 3rd visit to Rosemary Cottage enjoying lovely weather. We found it all very clean and tidy, and comfortable re equipment could do with another 2 medium saucepans when cooking a meal, and some glasses for water as their are not enough for 6 along with long handled brush,aa rotary line for drying any washing would be useful otherwise,we enjoyed our stay and will be back next year
Ketch is situated in a prime location with stunning views of the bay and out to sea. As such it would be highly recommended, however the property is sadly in need of a makeover. The heating is limited to electrical radiators which are not terribly efficient. The property is draughty (especially the front door) as there is no double glazing and there is a problem with condensation. I imagine that this would be a real problem over the winter months. The kitchen is adequate but the crockery and cutlery are very old and some is stained. The main bedroom is comfortable with a good bed but the...more
My family have, over a number of years, enjoyed staying at Chapel House East in St Mawes. While it always had the mildly damp aroma that is associated with a building of some antiquity it had not put us off returning once again. On this last occasion the location of two dehumidifiers, complete with a hand written request to operate them did not initially ring any alarm bells, however the increasing damp odour quickly became apparent and as requested both dehumidifiers were used. It is not an exaggeration to say that over the fortnight some gallons of water where extracted from the atmosphere ...more
This was not the first time I had stayed in Sea view and it doesn't let me down. A wonderful cottage in a wonderful setting.
The Old Diary is charming & oozes character. Having a 90 year old in our party we thought the ground floor bedroom & ensuite would be ideal. However, there are 2 deep steps between the lounge & the corridor leading to the ground floor bedroom. This was not a problem going down, but getting up the steps was more of a problem as there was nothing to hold on to. A rail of some sort would be extremely helpful. Having rented properties with Portscatho Holidays in the past we were slightly disappointed that the property wasn't up to their usual high standard of cleanliness. The kitchen bin was dirty...more
We loved our stay here and would book again. It's a fairly steep walk up to the house from St Mawes, but our three-year-old managed fine, as did a relative with a heart condition, albeit slowly. The house is really well-stocked with things to make a stay easier and more enjoyable, for example lots of cooking utensils including a food processor/mixer, as well as thoughtful things like some garden toys, board games and children's toys, useful books. The sitting room is very comfortable and there's a DVD player as well as the TV. The downsides were: a rather uncomfortable mattress and pillows in ...more
The parking is a plus but the access to it is very tight. If you are driving anything but quite a small car I would recommend approaching by Upper Castle Road, then Newton Road , then (as per your directions) Chapel Terrace and Riviera Lane. The house is in a nice situation , close to the front (Lower Castle Road) and so a short walk to everything. Being "upside down" with bedrooms on the ground floor and the living/dining space above you get the benefit of an east west alignment with great light from dawn to dusk. There is a small terrace which also gets the sun and would be pleasant for m...more
We had a great week in Spry's cottage. The cottage is centrally located, ideal for beach, shops etc. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one could need during a week in St Mawes. The three bedrooms were all a good size, with sufficient storage. We were fortunate to have lovely weather, and the garden was great for sitting out in, to catch the evening sun. I wouldn't describe the cottage as smart, but it was perfect for a family and dog!
We enjoyed our stay at Lan-y-mor, & felt comfortable there. Bathroom,Ensuite,Kitchen was v.good. although the Bathroom needs re-decorating, particularly the paint work. It seems this part of the house has been updated recently, and the owner may be doing it in stages. The sea views are excellent. There was no cleaners left at all, i.e. toilet or hob cleaner. The hob was desperate for a clean. The oven was dirty where people had not wiped it out. The pictures need re-newing. It would be handy if the owner had an outside contractor to clean the oven every so often, even if the price we...more
Lets start with the good bit, the view that was marvellous. The kitchen needed a good clean, bread crumbs by toaster and dishwasher need a clean under the door. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge sitting uncomfortable and television not working( this was sorted out by Porthscatho Holidays). Main bedroom bed very uncomfortable. Tried sleeping in other beds in the house they were also as uncomfortable left a day early as both my husband & I need a good night sleep. Bathroom is dated and the heater in this room was not working, ( did report this) dry towels by a heater in the hall way, and when ha...more
