Very lovely cottage in a cute village
A very lovely cottage, tucked away on the outskirt of the village, you have a nice view over the village and the bay from the bedroom window. Very comfortable and cozy. The village is also well equipt for any day or evening, good pubs, restaurants and some shops, also a small grocery shop so everything you would need. You can take boat trips to other places, easily and switfly. Beautifull countryside.
Perfect place to stay.
The Old Dairy made a perfect base to explore St Mawes and the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.
It was very clean and is so thoughtfully stocked with everything that you could possibly need whilst staying there.
A beautiful and very comfortable cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I did find some minor issues but not enough to warrant disturbing our much needed r&r holiday.
My husband found a chipped glass as he sipped a drink. A screwed up tissue found in the leaflets drawer. And a cereal bowl with yellow sauce/custard (?) on both inside and outside. Cobwebs in downstairs window which ? which had maybe not been cleaned on outside.
I just got the impression that the cottage had not been used for a while(?) and that a more thorough check could have been done...I think the glass & the dirty dish were the most concerning.
Otherwise we loved the cottage and enjoyed our holiday.
In many years of holiday rentals this was the least prepared for next guests and given all the rules from owner it made me think about e.g. the chipped glass.....I was concerned that we would be blamed for this and possibly charged....how can a customer prove any glassware or any other item was not damaged before their arrival? And given how much we were looking forward to our holiday I did not enjoy having that worry....my only solution was to leave a hand written note to Vanessa just advising what we had found but stating in guest book how much we had enjoyed our stay.
This is a very comfortable, well appointed and attractive property with plenty of room. It's in a good location, just a short walk from the harbour in St Mawes. We only used the car on one day, the excellent ferry service is great for organising walks and days out. The Victory pub and the fish stall on the harbour side are great places for very reasonably priced local food.
The Old Dairy, St Mawes
A very well equipped cottage and very neat, clean and tidy on arrival. The parking arrangement a little difficult.
St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.
St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.
