Perfect location at the end of a private road overlooking the Percuil River. The property was the ideal size for six adults, 2 toddlers and 2 dogs. Decor and contents very dated and in need of an upgrade, although this was partly reflected in the reasonable price. Our only criticism is that the heating was off on arrival and the controls are secured behind a locked door. We had to phone the housekeeper to arrange for the heating to be switched on, which only happened halfway through our stay. October can be chilly and damp so the owners need to allow access to the heating controls from the start of the holiday.
Lovely family holiday
A good house for families to share. Well equipped and lots of space for playing. Lovely sea views and convenient for boating.
St Mawes house
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Seagulls, the house, garden & patio are ideally situated to enjoy the wonderful views. The weather was beautiful the whole week ...
We needed a comfortable spot to rest between walks.we had breakfast every morning on the terrace with the View. After dinner in the evening we sat out with the birdsong and watched the bats fly in the evening light While enjoying our St Austell ales. Perfect R and R,
A comfortable family home for the week
The location is wonderful. The view across the Percuil estuary is stunning and very animated with boats sailing back and forth. It is hard to imagine how you could be closer to the water without getting your feet wet!
Yes, the standard of fittings may not be 'wow', but is is clean, comfortable and more than adequate for a large family group. In fact the homely decor meant it was much more relaxing to stay with young grandchildren and a labrador! The kitchen had everything we needed (we ate in for almost every meal). The second fridge-freezer in the utility room was only used for wine, as there was plenty of room in the main fridge-freezer for us.
Perfect location - good value for money for small group out of season
Enjoyed our stay at Seagulls very much. We were a party of 4 with two dogs and the property had everything we required for a comfortable weeks stay. As we did not use the whole property (the 3 bed annexe was not required therefore out of bounds) the price was discounted accordingly and it represented very good value for money for an out of season break. The property decor is as previously stated a little tired but it did not bother us in the slightest - the position and convenience of the property in relation to the main part of St Mawes and view from the living room, master bedroom and patio/ garden far exceeded our expectations. We would happily stay in Seagulls 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.
