A magical family holiday
We absolutely loved Brackley Cottage and beautiful St Mawes.
The location is amazing and the children loved looking out onto the harbour (and jumping in when the tide was in!)
Everything we needed was there, so thoughtfully and tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings and equipment.
We have a 4 and 6 year old and think we’d easily get away with fitting in for a good few more summers yet, we’re already planning next year!
Thank you for a magical family holiday, the cottage and location were perfect.
We loved staying at Brackley Cottage, right in front of the harbour, in Dt Mawes. The Cottage was well equipped and very cosy. Just be careful if you’re tall.....my husband kept hitting his head, there wasn’t a lot of room, but I loved it.
Excellent location, but if you’re looking for long lay ins, book somewhere away from the front, shops etc. It wasn’t overly noisy, apart from one morning a delivery lorry parked right outside, under our bedroom window! This said, you don’t want to stay in bed with so many beautiful places to visit.
Property for 2 -maximum
On the positive: Perfect position and magnificent and interesting views. We were very lucky with the wonderful weather.
On the negative: Be warned - if you can't really cope with narrow twisty steep stairs - be you elderly or very young - this is certainly not for you. It says 2 double bedrooms! Again if a triangular bed squashed into and upon a dais serves as a double, then would have to be very short-legged and slim. The main double very comfortable, thankfully. So we used the small one as a dressing room.
One loo and a very efficient separate shower. BUT, both upstairs - so needs negociating THOSE stairs - well good luck.
Cleanliness leaves much to be desired. Sticky services everywhere. Mrs. Owner, - pay your Cleaner more - it pays dividends. Or change her.
Small but perfectly placed
Lovely stay at Brackley Cottage ideal base for the Roseland. .
Cottage although small has stunning views over the harbour, easy walking distance of pubs and restaurants 5 minutes at most, Falmouth Ferry and car park. Although no on site parking a weekly tickets is only £30 and it's less Than am 5 minute walk. You can unload outside.
Not really suitable for 4 adults maybe two and one child as smaller bedroom is rather tight and bed is built in. Bed in main room is harder than we are used to.
The other drawback was that we were not informed of restoration work on the adjoining buildings until the day before we left home. Thankfully it didn't affect our holiday.
I'd definitely book it again.
We had a very comfortable weekend. The cottage is in a excellent location, with a great view from the main bedroom.
Great little cottage
Great little cottage for our 3rd visit to beautiful St Mawes! Comfortable,clean & tidy, right by the harbour & all amenities.
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 Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes' walk including a well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
