Lovely location, maybe a little more description on the path to the house would have been helpful, it's very dark at night and in bad weather extremely slippy. The car park spaces are tight and I would imagine a 4x4 or wide cars would struggle. Lovely views and rooms, not many would have been nice to have some throws in the sitting room for chilly evenings. Quite dusty. Garden is splendid. It has electric stowage heaters, albeit mostly modern, but this is not central heating as stated.
Hi Charlotte, Thank you for your review, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay in St Mawes, it really is a lovely village. I’m sorry the path can be dark, but unfortunately we do not own the footpath and therefore cannot add any lighting, i do believe in our arrival notes it is mentioned a torch would be needed should you arrive after dark. There is always the choice to park and unload below the cottage if the weather is really bad, i hope it wasn’t too much of an issue for you. I didn’t realise we had stated central heating on the description for our cottage, we find the heaters in each room keep the house nice and cosy, and the fire in the main room always brightens up a dreary Cornish day, but i will address this and ask the agency to change it, thank you for bringing it to my attention. Kind regards and hopefully Cornwall (and Chupra) will be able to welcome you to stay again in the future. The Wood Family
exactly as advertised
everything very good, did struggle with the hot water, but will be back again, everything was as advertised, easy reach of the town centre, realy comfortable and clean, plenty of room and nice outside space and patio area, room for two cars to park, we all enjoyed our stay,
Hi Rodney, Thank you for a lovely review, I’m sorry about the Hot water, but hopefully it didn’t distract from your holiday, we look forward to welcoming you again to Cornwall in the Future. Regards The Wood Family
Sunny week in St Mawes
We’ve just come home from a lovely sunny week in St Mawes staying in Chupra a very smart bungalow with great views over the small town. No more than 100 meters from the shops and beach the accommodation is accessed by a steep path from the bungalows parking space or via a steep hill from the town.
Chupra provides us with excellent, clean and well appointed facilities for our stay and I would highly recommend it.
Hi Tim, So glad you had a good week, the weather was amazing for Easter. looking forward to welcoming you again. Regards Sally
We enjoyed our stay at Chupra. Everything made for a good holiday.
We did find the hot water ran out quickly when we all needed showers.
Nice house in lovely area
Nice spacious house which suited all our family needs. Only downside was the path from the car to the house which was overgrown. We holiday in St Mawes at least twice per year and this is one house that we will look to renting again. Would highly recommend!
Thank you so much, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. Hopefully we can welcome you to stay again soon. So sorry about the path it was very overgrown, however the council have now cut it back so access is much easier. Regards Sally
Review of our stay at Chupra
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chupra and will be returning. The accommodation was very comfortable with plenty of equipment. We took two dogs and it was safe for them as the garden was fully enclosed. The housekeeper was very helpful .
The position of the cottage is excellent, the amenities of the village are all within easy walking distance. However the roads in St Mawes are very steep and narrow,which makes it very quaint but difficult for people with mobility problems. Views from the house and garden are pretty. The downsides are the parking which is not on site but on a parking bay on an incline. The alley from this to the cottage is unlit, narrow and steep which makes loading and unloading the car difficult,especially at night. There is a building site behind the cottage but was quite quiet. The garden is lovely. Chupra is well placed for walking and getting about to explore the countryside.St Mawes is very pretty with useful shops, pubs and restaurants.
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.
