Excellent cottage in fabulous location - great help from housekeeper and owner. Amazing kitchen equipment. Lovely rooms. Pretty garden. Will be rebooking in 2021.
We chose this property in Portscatho because we were doing some walking on the Cornish coast path and Sloop seemed an ideal place to stay - it was wonderful! It was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The coast path was below the property and the bus stop just across the road. The view was spectacular! Perfect accommodation!
A lovely house that feels like a home. Everything has been done to a very high standard. We were there in the autumn so didn't really use the garden. There's a terrace at the back for outdoor dining but it seems a shame this is in the shadow of the house with no view of the sea. There is a small terrace outside the summer house (the little house itself is not for the use of guests) and that is higher up with more of a view. But the main thing is you are right across the road from the beach. Everything was really beautifully done inside -- White Company towels and bedlinen, Emma Bridgewater cro...more
only comment is re garden - always had nice tidy garden previously; appreciated coffee & tea upon arrival but would also have liked some milk for immediate use
Stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my friend's birthday and I can honestly say it is the best self catering property I have stayed in - and I've stayed in a lot! Percuil View is a bright, clean, warm, modern barn conversion which has been tastefully decorated and is generously well equipped. Furniture and beds are comfortable. Bedrooms are large and the bathroom has a huge deep bath with a separate walk in shower. The view is wonderful although the weather was dreadful and we only had one day of being able to appreciate it. Parking is right by the house so unloading is no problem. ...more
Many thanks to all who made our stay so enjoyable. The Villa is wonderful and so It’s a view to die for. Karen & David
Just what we needed ... a home from home in a peaceful setting with walks from the doorstep. Great house!
Perfect location , great house for family and friends alike . Warm ,cosy ,all you could want. Great winter break.
We enjoyed our visit with long walks and watching the seabird variety from the living room. We especially enjoyed the meals at local pubs and talking with local residents. The Seahouse is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Cornwall.
We have stayed in St. Mawes for many many years in various houses and hotels. This is the first time at Tregwylan and it didn't disappoint. The house and location is wonderful, even in the rain. The only observation we would make is regarding the mattress in the master bedroom, it being rather soft (for us) and does not match the quality of the rest of the house.
Lovely place to stay well equipped ( apart from no microwave) .very comfortable apartment with great views
A wonderfully comfortable and clean house with every amenity needed, for our family of 5. The view from the sitting room was beautiful and it was a short walk to the quay, shops etc. Can’t wait to come back to St Mawes!
Brilliant cottage in the idyllic St Mawes for a family break away from all the chaos life throws at you. Great value for money and looks exactly as the pictures state. A stones throw from the shops and beach making it the perfect spot to grab a snack from the shop or walk along the beach. Great service and all round fabulous family holiday cottage- we will definitely book again.
This is our second visit to this house. The house is beautiful & modern and the location ideal as it has a sea view and is very close to the village pub and shop. However, there are a few problems creeping in. The house at the other end of the block had a fly problem which i fed back on (last year), and they are creeping into this house. Very upsetting if like me you dislike flies. Housekeeping didnt turn the heating on so we arrived to a very very cold house on a bitter November afternoon. The master bedroom didnt have any towels so we used the ones in the spare room, and the bat...more
A lovely well equipped cottage with stunning views. St mawes has everything you need and great walks all close by. Lovely to find a dog friendly great cottage we will be back we hope.
The house is in a great location and gave us a good base for walks into the village and down to the beach. The seating area in the garden is a lovely sun trap. We loved the interior design too. Portschatho Holidays were quick to respond to problems we encountered during our stay. The only improvements we could suggest would be investing in a decent knife block for families who dine in and there wasn’t a companion set for the fireplace which will be needed in Winter.
Parc an Bounder was an excellent holiday home .We stayed for 2 weeks in August it is very well equipped with everything you need.The property is very light and spacious.
Last minute booking which turned out to be an excellent location. Great apartment with ‘surprising’ sea views.
Very comfortable, well equipped accommodation with beautiful sea views from the living area and main bedroom. Outstanding location for excellent walks (it's right on the coastal path) and access to the village of Portscatho with it's shops and restaurants. We didn't use the car all week and appreciated the spacious parking at the property (a bonus in many Cornish locations). It is also close to a bus stop with a service to both St Mawes and Truro - useful if you want to get further afield. The Roseland Peninsular is a beautiful area and Pengerein the perfect place to stay to explore it.
Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Lovely enclosed garden and central position in St Mawes.Could do with a barbecue though?
We all loved the property with is splendid reviews. I have no negative comments and thought the owners had been very thoughtful and considerate with regard to what was provided. My only wish, was that a truly sensible upright vacuum cleaner such as a Shark was provided as they scoop up dog hairs much better than a Henry. I am sure we shall be going back. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday.
The property is in a great location for St Mawes, near the beach and Pubs but not the noise. The views are tremendous!!! Beds are comfortable but the property is showing signs of tiredness.
All good but perhaps should mention shared and crowded courtyard and proximity to Harbour Club so need to keep windows closed at night
Very comfortable beds, kitchen fine, oven and stove good. Handles off or faulty of at least 2 doors Radiators not running correctly: needed to be set for 28 degrees (when temperature was clearly about 19/20) and then, of course, too hot. Top of TV cabinet dirty on arrival and only one dinner plate in the house.
Enjoyed our week at LH. The owners were next door throughout and warm and friendly. The house itself is charming, in a great location and with gorgeous views. It is mostly in good condition and well stocked for a longer stay. A couple of constructive comments: first, the steep steps and low ceilings will challenge some visitors; secondly, the kitchen contents should be reviewed and some things replaced.
After an awful journey to St Mawes, we were so pleasantly surprised by such a lovely cottage. It provided us with such space and comfort, yet giving us a homely feel. The layout of the cottage gives you the most beautiful view. On the lower floor both bedrooms open up on to a private garden, providing seating and bbq. The front again has seating and small pretty garden. The cottage was extremely well equipped for our needs . We would definitely use this cottage again on further visits to St Mawes.
great flat - lovely views and plenty of space. loved the mod cons - sonos speakers etc and was a great location. would definitely go again!
Charming, clean, plenty of space for our family of four and a fully stocked kitchen. Our family loved how the house was decorated, to us Americans it was just how we imagined a British beach house would look. The large windows in the living area made it possible for us to enjoy the sea regardless of the weather. A very easy and short walk to town and the local store. Beds and linens were comfortable. Plenty of towels. All appliances were in working order. Wifi worked well. Parking was adequate. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay here again.
This is a lovely property in a very good position in St Mawes. It is very well equipped and the parking space is a real bonus. We would stay here again
For a family reunion/holiday it was a very good location - my family used to live nearby. St.Mawes is very convenient - the shops are only 10 minutes away. The weather was fantastic for the week. We had no problems at all. Definitely a "recommendation".
The cottage was perfect! It was sparkling like a new pin. The beds were more comfy than at home and the linen was crisp and clean. St Mawes is stunning. We were 10 seconds from the beautiful beach. Had tea at the Idle Rocks, ate lots of crab sandwiches and bought some art to remember it all by. Frankie from Portscatho Holidays was very kind and brought us a heater on the coldest and blowiest day. The cottage was cosy and warm but it was unseasonably cold outside! see you next time Portscatho Holidays!
This is our fourth time of staying at Seascapes. The accommodation has some negative features like not enough storage space in the kitchen and ensuite. Need hooks on the back of the bathroom and bedroom doors. Towel drying a problem. Also heavy use of fabric conditioner on the towels and bedding not good. We do love the views and always have a good holiday but feel that nothing has been improved or changed since it was built. (garlic crusher still broken)!!!!! We also had to do some cleaning in the bedrooms... dirty tops of units, drawers unclean and dusty skirting boards. We appreciate ...more
A very challenging access to the property, especially on foot, but also by car. Parking near the property for unloading was extremely difficult and could be almost impossible during the high season. No hot water in the sink in bathroom and windows could not be opened in either the bathroom or the en-suite making it difficult for steam to escape.
Another lovely stay in Puffin. Brilliant location. Central to village with amazing views. Comfortable accommodation and a good size as a base for a family of four.
Apsley Cottage is the perfect location in Porscatho. Walking distance to excellent local shop pub and the boathouse cafe. Excellent footpaths link to Porthcurnick beach 1/2 mile where the Hidden Hut cafe is. April - end Oct only. The cottage itself has everything you need if a little dated in style. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
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
Clearly modernised and recently updated, this is an excellent place for a pair of couples with two kids in the bunk beds. Very clean. Perhaps more Gerrans than Portscatho as it's a good downhill walk to the waterfront. A 75 yard walk from car parking to accommodation and it's a 14 step walk down to the door. A helpful porch for shoes etc... You can see the sea from the back with a 90 degree angle. We loved it here with no passing traffic and very quiet location. Warm and everything we needed. Sadly, no "kerbside" recycling so you have to cart all cardboard, cans, glass etc to the recyc...more
Best ever property we've rented with you. Best ever property we've rented with you Best ever property we've rented with you
We booked Trevu for a family get together to celebrate my 80th birthday and it had everything we could want.Spacious comfortable bedrooms,masses of room to gather to eat both inside and out and an easy to use kitchen.The other huge benefit was parking for six cars.A perfect venue for this event.
A lovely bijou cottage set in the heart of the Roseland. Excellent centre to explore the countryside by bike or walking... close to the sea/coast , lost gardens and N.T. Excellent cosy public house 200 yds away good food and beer. The Forge is well suited for that night in.... reading a book or doing that jigsaw you always promised yourself. Not suitable for streaming those box sets you missed , catching up on Open University or research into that new book your writing. Broadband is 0.2 mbs on average over the week and no mobile network ( 02).
Again a lovely stay at castle cottage. Some touching up has been done since our last visit but it is looking tired in places. The bathroom for example, could do with a deep clean. Also good if there were some new saucepans. However, we love this place
Our stay at Lamorran Lodge worked out really well with our two black labradors - the driveway and garden are totally secure so there were no worries about them getting out onto the road. The accommodation was good - the only downside being that there is no view - but you can't have everything!
As other reviews say the location is fantastic - so peaceful and beautiful amongst a wooded stream, with a short and scenic stroll along the valley to a beach and the SW Coast Path. The lack of WiFi was not a problem, and good mobile signal allowed us to keep in touch when needed. But it is a great place to escape from tech etc. We did unfortunately experience the mosquitoes - I guess a consequence of being so close to the stream where there is some standing still water. (and the fantastic warm and sunny weather we were lucky to have). Despite windows being shut the blighters still got in. Wo...more
Our second stay at 6 Spinnaker and we greatly enjoyed it. Even though the November temperatures were chilly outside we were very cosy in the apartment. The central heating worked very effectively and the low winter sun streamed in through the living room windows giving a warm daytime glow. Although not on the water front the elevated position gives wonderful views over the harbour and out towards Carrick Roads and Falmouth. We hope to be back again soon.
This was our second stay at Charlie's, and it remains a really comfortable, well equipped, spacious holiday cottage, in a fabulous position up above St Mawes harbour. Stunning sea views from the front windows, and a pretty patio and garden at the back.
The 2019 refurbishment has made a big improvement to South Cottage and we found it very comfortable. We love the position and the glorious views. A most enjoyable stay again.
Another lovely holiday in St Mawes in comfortable property with nice garden. It is good to find a comfortable property that will accept a well behaved dog.
Our third visit to this lovely location. The flat is ideally placed for the amenities of Portscatho and cliff/beach walks. Wonderful sea view from the living room. Very dog friendly. We shall be back hopefully. Such a relaxing and peaceful place to be.
We have stayed at this property almost every year for the past 10 years. So we know both it and Porthscatho Holidays very well. The property is very good value for money (say compared to National Trust Holiday Cottages) and is in a handy location for a lovely beach and excellent shop and pub. The decor and fittings of the cottage are attractive and we have found Porthscatho Holidays to be excellent and very efficient. At the moment we hope to book this cottage again next year. However last year we reported to Porthscatho Holidays, a faulty lock on a patio door in the cottage which did not ...more
This is an excellent house in a great location with a lovely garden which overlooks the water. The view towards St Anthony’s head.and lighthouse is magnificent.
Fantastic location. I always stay right on the front and just love being able to walk straight out of the front door and over to the beach. Having kids means they are able to go straight out to the beach so superb location. I've been coming to St Mawes for years so conscious that Tavern Hse may recently have been let. All I would say is that the size is great but it is rather dated in part. The kitchen and dining room particularly. Not much work space in the kitchen. The upstairs bathroom is huge but again very dated. That's our only grumble really. Plenty of space for all 7 of us. It wouldn't...more
Second stay at Avalen and it really is just the most comfortable and relaxing cottage imaginable. Location is excellent too!
The property is in an ideal location overlooking the bay and out to the Carrick Roads. The decoration was rather "eclectic", but interesting and well executed. The only downside for us was it's being spread over three floors; it was a very long walk from the kitchen to the lounge! Not good for arthritic knees! A lovely cottage for a family or couple wanting to be close to the village and all it has to offer.
We had a lovely few days in Powder Cottage. Ruan Lanihorne is a quiet hamlet and a short walk took us to the River Fal where there was an abundance of wildlife. The cottage was very clean and offered everything we needed including a lovely AGA. We didn't light the log burner as it wasn't cold but it looked very inviting. The garden was full of apples and was secure for our dog. We had an excellent meal at the King's Head just a few meters from the cottage. St Mawes is an easy drive away and on the way we thoroughly enjoyed the Da Bara Bakery.
Just had a week in St Mawes and found this cottage perfect for our needs. We loved the upside down layout with a great view out to sea, you can watch all the boats coming and going. It was very comfortable too and in particular the king sized bed.
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
Our 12th stay in Portscatho and 1st at Lan-Y-Mor. Location is hard to beat being just behiind the houses fronting the main square, so all the village facilities are within a 3 minute walk. Parking in Portscatho is always hard to find and some rental properties have a "reserved space on the street which usualy gets ignored, so having its own off street parking is a definite bonus. Property is generally in good order; some fittings are starting to show their age, but nothing that detracts from your holiday and everything works. The property is nicely set out on 3 levels with a good size hall t...more
We all really enjoyed our stay at Medlar Cottage. Great location, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Property needed a bit of TLC.
Amazing location & pretty cottage though tired in places. Acknowledged leak on arrival following a heavy storm, & though it stopped with the rain, it wasn’t fixed during our stay.
A well equipped home , especially the kitchen, that was let down by standard of cleanliness. Unable to use dining room as very dusty floors and furniture. Mop provided but no bucket. Amazing views which we enjoyed from the comfort of the sitting room.
Positives: Impeccably clean Well provisioned Beautifully decorated and accessorised home from home Excellent customer service from both the cleaner and Portscatho holidays Negatives: Broken sink in the upstairs bathroom that wasn’t fixed despite being told it would be by the cleaner Fridge stopped working but a replacement was ordered and delivered within 48 hours of notifying of the problem Tricky to unload belongings from car with nearest access a few metres away Overall, an enjoyable stay in a lovely house with friendly service and support.
Penrosa is a lovely split level place to stay, having 2 different outside areas was great. The indoor sofa seating and dinning area was very comfortable and had plenty of space for our group of 6 plus a toddler. Having a laundry was great. This place needs a lick of paint to tidy it up, but I would not let this put you off, it’s a holiday home. It’s location is fantastic for watching life on the water and for people wanting to be near tavern beach. Our only grizzle was that there was voiles in one of the bedrooms, hard to sleep if you like it dark but this could be easier fixed by the owner...more
Good location, in the lovely place that is St Mawes. Cottage homely and comfortable.With own parking which is a plus.
It was very frustrating to learn on our journey to Cornwall that the front door wasn’t operational so we had to access the house with all our bags and provisions ( large Tesco order!) up the rickety wooden back steps. All the paths around the house were broken and slippery , with odd bits of slate propped up unsecured around plant pots . It was quite treacherous especially after dark . Inside was very nice but in order for 8 people to sit in the sitting room we had to move an armchair from a bedroom.
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
