Though early in the year we were quite lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside on the balcony and patio downstairs.
Lovely roomy accommodation and extremely well equipped kitchen.
Great stay at long commons with 2 young families and dogs over Christmas. House is spacious, clean and well appointed. Great location - approx 10 minutes from the harbour - and great views from the top of the hill. Customer service and communications were good.
October, 2019 half term review
Fith stay at this prperty at various times of the year and overall still very pleased with our stays. Location is great to get out and explore the surrounding areas and close enough to walk into the village. However, people would need to be aware of the hill walking back to the property if they had any health or mobility issues. The house provides excellent facilities and there is sufficient room in the property as not to feel under each others feet. We did experience some odour coming from the shower room in the downstairs twin bedded room and from the downstairs single bedroom. When reported to the housekeeper we were pleased with the speedy response. A plumber came to the property and although nothing could be resolved immediately we were advised they would look to remedy this asap.
We had a lot of rain during our stay and noticed on a number of ocassions the rain water had collected in pools on the balcony.
Although there are a couple of minor negative points above we are more than hapy to return to the property and have already rebooked for 2020!!!!!
Another fabulous stay in our favourite holiday house on the south coast More than excellent
We love St Mawes but we adore Long Commons
We have had many stays here and look forward to returning next year.
Our favourite property in St Mawes
Superb location and lovely house.
Our second stay at Long Commons. This house provides everything we need for a relaxing holiday with my elderly Mother. The house is super comfortable and the views are fabulous. We had the bi fold doors open even on the not so sunny days to enjoy the feeling of being outside. The lift was great for my Mum who struggles with stairs as was the shower in the main bedroom. We found all the beds comfortable and loved the selection of books.
There was just one thing we couldn’t work out and that was the TV has the full sky package including Movies but we couldn’t find out the PIN number to watch them. Not a big thing by any means and didn’t spoil our enjoyment in any way but as we’ve booked for next year it would be great to have instructions left for this.
Loved the garden and the fact that we can bring our dog too. A lovely house.
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.
