A perfect family venue
This was our second visit to the house and it immediately felt like home., three families, three generations. The house is wonderfully spacious and comfortable, superbly equipped. It was a pleasure to make use of the new patio furniture. The position of the house is wonderful, easy access to the village and breathtaking views.
We left with a heavy heart as we all knew we would not return next year, as two of the children will be starting school. Hopefully we will all return to our little bit of paradise one day.
The house is in an excellent location with breath taking views of st maws and beoned. There is plenty of space for family groups to have ther own space.
We were treated to a firework display in the harbour which was excellent
We will return.
Another excellent stay
There isn't really much to say this year apart from that we had another fantastic stay. A few of the small improvements we suggested last year had been addressed and I really struggle to give any negative criticism at all.
We will be going back year on year I'd imagine.
A few things to mention
One oven in that beautiful kitchen, is insuffient when cooking for large numbers of people.
The showers had no shelves for soaps etc at waist level, , or grab handles for security . Especially needed in bedroom on reception level, as I presume this is meant for use by people with disabilities.
TV's both showed same channels, so we could not separate to watch anything different.
Had we had better weather, the lack of cushions for outside furniture , would have been an issue. Only 2 lounger chairs on the balcony !!!! For a house that sleeps at least 8 adults!!!!
Wardrobe in bedroom 1 needs replacing, with more useful hanging space, and better hangers!!!
Overall, a beautiful house, with views that are just fabulous. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely surprise., and most appreciated.
A beautiful home in Cornwall
First, Cornwall cottages were most helpful with a query before the holiday started. The arrival a distinct improvement on other rentals, unloading the car undercover and,on entering,the heating was already on. Again never before with others, so no searching for instructions and finding boiler controls. Now Fiddlers Green. Simply a beautiful home with stunning views no matter what time of year one goes. Peaceful and comfortable throughout, interior design to encourage the holiday feel of the place. As for practicalities, two things of note. We have rented properties for many years and have often found that cutlery, crockery, even coffee mugs etc does not match the number of potential guests, not so here. Something mundane, sometimes the bins have had to be taken quite a distance (at Feoch 1/4 mile!), here top of the drive or housekeeping will take it for you. To sum up, a delightful holiday in a delightful place that we hope to repeat next year.

It’s all about the view.
Our second visit to Fiddlers Green. The house is comfortable and we thoroughly enjoy the view from every room.
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, it 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 it from a 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 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.
