This was our second visit to Cobblestones and once again it was excellent. A perfect spot from which to explore St Mawes. Can't wait to come again!
Well equipped, centrally located cottage.
Overall a very well equipped and comfortable, centrally located cottage. Being in a courtyard it was very quiet even though it is only a few paces from the sea wall. Modern kitchen and appliances with plenty of crockery and cutlery etc. Those with poor mobility may find it difficult as there is only one toilet upstairs.
Limited instructions re rubbish and recycling and only one key provided. Fine if you are all going out and returning together, if not, you have to remember to place it in the key safe to avoid some of the party being locked out.
A wonderful return trip to the very lovely Cobblestones
4 years since our first trip to Cobblestones and St Mawes and our second visit did not disappoint. The cottage is very comfortable with a great modern bathroom and magnificent kitchen whilst still retaining its original cottage character. Its location is steps from the harbour wall, the magnificent St Mawes sea views and easy access to the foot ferry, pubs, cafes and restaurants of St Mawes. The little terrace above the kitchen might not have sea views, but is a lovely little sun trap, especially in the morning. The cottage had everything we needed (good, free wifi, TV, Bluetooth speaker, well equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer etc). The only downside of the cottage is that it only has the one loo in the only bathroom, but for 2 or 4 of you its manageable. Might be awkward if 3 couples, not such an issue for a family. The place was spotlessly clean and we had excellent service from Cornwalls cottages staff who always responded in a very timely fashion to the myriad of questions and changes to my booking I made over several weeks. The cream tea was a lovely bonus and we would definitely go back a third time.
Great cottage with all we needed.
Was meeting family and friends for a birthday occasion, location perfect.
Fantastic location in St Mawes.
We have stayed here for three consecutive years and enjoyed it every time. The location in relation to the shops,restaurants, pubs and the harbour is ideal. It's a tucked away cottage with no real view but the location oposite the sea wall more that makes up for that. It's very quiet and peaceful too. I like St Mawes and I like this cottage.
Beautiful St Mawes
We enjoyed our stay at Cobblestone. We felt that the cottage was starting to look a little tired possibly from a busy summer season - cobwebs around the velux windows, stains on the carpet, food left in a slightly messy freezer, dusty skirting boards, and ashes left in the bbq. It might not bother most but If you like things sparking, like my wife, it may not quite live up to expectations. Building work across the courtyard prevented any chance of a peaceful early morning ly-in, which was a shame. On the plus side a powerful shower and copious hot water was good. And being just a stones throw from the waterfront was lovely. The welcoming delicious homemade scones, jam and clotted cream was a nice touch. Thank you.
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.
