Happy days in St Mawes
Another lovely week at Camellia Cottage - sunshine and wild weather too. Long, family walks and deep sleeps in the comfortable beds. Happy dogs too.
However, we just feel the equipment and some furnishings need a bit of an upgrade over the winter.
We look forward to returning again next year.
Autumn break with friend & dogs
Return trip to lovely Camellia cottage. Bravo for the new radiators which have made a big difference in the absence of the Aga. Relaxing long w/e in this characterful cottage with lovely front garden. Perfect cottage for family friends who don't want it too prissy and wonderful to be able to take the dogs.
Wonderful early autumn break
We’ve just had a wonderful 10 days in a well equipped cottage with fantastic views over St Mawes harbour. Unlike many rentals it really did accommodate 6 people easily. The cottage was warm and the terrace was on the sun all day. The area was quiet and relaxing and the cottage was the most comfortable we’ve stayed in.
Great place - good location, nice views
Great location - short walk to everything you need (beach, shops etc)
Garden - the front of house gets the sun all day long. Nice views across the bay
Amenities - wifi/kitchen/tv. Everything you need is present.
Doors - very small. If you are tall you will bang your head...allot!
Parking - very tricky to park or drive near to property. The streets in St Mawes are very narrow and steep.
We really enjoyed our stay with our 2 children (aged 5 and 2). The views from the garden are stunning (worth the steep walk back from town) and we spent our evenings sat in the beautiful garden watching the boats with a glass of wine. The house, especially the kitchen, is really well equipped. The only useful addition would be stair gates as we had to bring our own. Very comfy beds, we all slept really well. We loved St Mawes and will definitely back, hopefully to Camellia Cottage as I can't imagine a lovelier place to stay.
Ideal position in St Mawes with beautiful sea views. Easy access to shops restaurants, and the beaches.
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.
