Perfect size for a couple and every need catered for
This apartment is the perfect size for a couple and laid out very simply but nothing overlooked. We stayed at the end of September / beginning of October as we were visiting an elderly auntie who lives nearby. Unfortunately the weather was mostly wind and rain, but when the sun appeared we managed to sit out on the patio with a cuppa for an hour and even managed to get the passenger ferry over to Falmouth for a bit of shopping. Every detail in the apartment has been carefully thought through, even supplying a bookshelf of reading matter, both fiction and non-fiction. We had no-one staying in the apartment above, so the only sound we could hear most of the time was the rain! I have to mention the shower over the bath which was excellent - not your usual hose diverted from the bath taps below, but a fully functioning separate shower, superb.
Home from home in St Mawes
As a former resident of St Mawes who now lives oversea, Bosun's Locker is perfect for my annual visit. It offers every home comfort and is located close to all amienenties.
Ideal hideaway for two
This was our 5th visit, so clearly we love it. A lovely, comfortable apartment, with a marine theme and feel to the decor and furnishings, with a sun trap seating area outside, just 20-30 yards from the sea and the quayside of St. Mawes. It is such a special place,with its own unique feel. A great location,as there are some beautiful places to visit either on foot along the coast paths ,such as the idyllic St Just-in-Roseland or Portscatho,or by boat to Falmouth or St Anthony's Head. We didn't use the car once all week. There are some up-market ,but quite relaxed hotels and pubs in St Mawes. A drink in the bar of Tresanton or on the terrace of the Idle Rocks was a favourite of ours. The Victory is very inviting and the St Mawes hotel is always buzzing. An excellent bakery sits on the quayside. There are some really lovely gardens to visit,the Lamorran house gatdens,a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. The castle is well worth a look too. A well-stocked Co-op kept us going for most things. There are two beaches accessible except at high tide. It's a bit of a sailing Mecca too,so there are always yachts,dinghies ,canoes and paddleboards criss-crossing the water. Things go at a gentle pace ,which is one of the charms of the place. Just being there and enjoying what's around you , taking in the views across the harbour, across to the headland and out to sea is one of the real pleasures of St Mawes and Bosun's Locker is a lovely place to be to enjoy it all. Highly recommended.
Comfortable stay in St Mawes.
Very comfortable property ideal for an individual or couple.Great location,only drawback the noise from upstairs.
Conveniently located and well equipped apartment for 2 people
The apartment was well equipped and in a very good location near the harbour and shops. We did miss having a dishwasher but the washing machine was useful. The patio garden was surrounded by the other apartments so didn't have a sea view, but it was pleasant to sit out there in the sunshine.
A return visit ?
We returned to Bosun's Locker as we were so impressed last year. Everything we needed was there even the sunshine! The bed and bedding was comfortable and excellent quality. Would not hesitate to visit again thoroughly delighted with everything.
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. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Hotel Tresanton and The Idle Rocks) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes' walk including a Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker, delicatessens, art and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
