Birthday Party Holiday and family holiday.
Loved the cottage. The location is really good and it is well equipped. The only problem we had was the workmen from next door (we were only notified if this 4 days prior to arrival!!) which meant we had to get up extremely early as they arrived quite noisily at 7.30am , loud drilling and banging which continued until at least 4.30pm this spoilt it for us.
Thankyou, we value all guests’ feedback as it enables us to strive to achieve the standards we are aiming for. We are so disappointed to hear that the work taking place at an adjoining cottage spoilt your stay; please accept our most sincere apologies for this. The property in question has recently been sold and is now being renovated. We were completely unaware of this until the guests staying prior to yourselves brought it to our attention. The builders next door offered their reassurances, through the new owners, that the noisy works had been completed. As there had been no prior notice of any potential disturbance, Cornwalls Cottages were only able to make you aware shortly before your stay. We will be looking into this further when in St Mawes next week and will message you privately to update you. Finally, we are pleased to hear that you loved Thimble Cottage and hope that your experience doesn’t put you off returning for a more tranquil stay in the future. Caroline Jukes.
Perfectly located for a family beach holiday
We’ve just returned from a week long stay at Thimble Cottage. We had a lovely time despite the weather being a bit hit and miss.
The cottage couldn’t be any better located if you want to ditch he car and walk to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants.
Parking is a 2 minute walk away and cost us £30 for the whole week. Car park is safe and secure too.
The cottage itself is very well equipped and perfect for us and our two twelve year olds (strong WiFi!).
We loved how they’ve manage an en-suite to each bedroom.
Although there’s no garden, the courtyard out the front door with seating area is great for watching people go by, storing wetsuits etc
I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone planning a visit to St Mawes.
My only criticism would be that the bedding could do with a refresh, especially the pillows.
Aside from that 5/5!!
Superb Fishing village location
Fantastic location close to the heart of the village and the beautiful harbour. Great choice of restaurants and pubs nearby. Cottage had everything that you could need.
A lovely cottage in a great location.
Our second visit to Thimble cottage and we were not disappointed. The cottage has a lovely homely feel and has everything you need for a great holiday. A real bonus is having two bathrooms. The King sized bed is so comfortable, and the views of the boats out of the bedroom window first thing in the morning was a real pleasure.
Another fab hols
Our 2nd visit to Thimble Cottage and it was just as good as the first. A lovely comfy cottage with everything you need with gorgeous views from front windows. Excellent location and close to all amenities. We loved it.
Perfect winter break
Thimble cottage was decorated to a very high standard. It had everything we needed and was of high quality. I would definitely book again
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 Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
