We had a wonderful stay in this excellent House, great location and everything you could want. So comfortable, highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our stay at Foretop. The property was exactly as advertised and provided excellent amenities . We really loved the outside space , the secure garden for our dog , and the accessibility of lots of lovely walks in the area . Easy access to St Mawes and Portscatho was a real bonus where there are plenty options for drinking and eating out . We have visited the Roseland Peninsula many times and next time we return Foretop will be a property we would certainly look to rent again if available .
Another relaxing week in st mawes. We curled up in front of the fire, went for walks to the beaches and enjoyed a wonderful stay. The house was incredibly comfortable and luxurious - we will be back....
Polcreek is wonderfully comfortable and relaxing, set in beautiful gardens and just a short walk/drive to the beach. The cottage is well equipped with everything needed for a week's stay, this was our 5th or 6th stay and everything is always immaculately clean and well presented.
We have spent a week at this house during the Christmas period six times in the last 7 years. the recent addional features have obviously enhanced the overall situation. wonderful views, refreshing walks and of course the close proximity of the Tresanton Hotel. our return visits are sufficient testaments in themselves !!
Value for Money entry reflects family discount. Confusing/conflicting instructions about re-cycling between the general instructions in the file and the Covid instructions on the notice in the kitchen, especially regarding the disposal of bottles, we searched for a glass recycling container in the car park, to find it had been removed. There was no container/bag for the recycling of cans/plastic bottles. Otherwise we loved the house, which was warm and comfortable, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
On arrival we were very impressed with the layout of the property and especially the expansive views from St Antony's Head count to St Mawes castle and beyond and out to sea, views which we enjoyed enormously from the terrace. We were lucky with the weather most days but we had chosen a property which we could enjoy for itself if the weather had proved wet and windy. It was an exceptionally comfy and cosy and warm house to return to after being out exploring, walking the beaches of Pendower and Carne, exploring Portscatho, visiting Trelissick and Gledurgan and walking out to St Antony's Head...more
Just what we needed ... a home from home in a peaceful setting with walks from the doorstep. Great house!
We were a family of 5 adults staying again in our favourite Cornish village. You cannot beat the location of this house, so close to the sea and heart of the village, the view is absolutely stunning. It has everything you could need including a useful large porch area with plenty of space for coats and shoes. The layout worked well for us. I couldn't fault the cleaning, it was spotless. It was a great week away and we would love to return in the summer, but it's already booked up sadly.
My family and I, and our little dog, had a wonderful stay at Boswedden in October, a holiday that had had to be delayed since June due to Covid (and sadly without the other members of our family who had been due to join us from overseas). The house was extremely comfortable and spacious for the three of us. We loved the relaxing views of the river and the peace and quiet of the location. The house is very well equipped so it really feels like a home from home. The house is warm, cosy, clean and comfortable and really had everything we wanted. The location suited us really well, it was great to...more
Had a very enjoyable stay . Fab property , very comfortable and spacious and well equipped with everything one might need to have a great holiday. We know this area of Cornwall really well and it was the perfect location to visit all our favourite haunts . Felt really relaxed at the end of our week and would definitely visit again .
A lovely house well presented and spotlessly clean. A great location with the sea in the distance. Very cosy with the log burner.
quality and cleanliness upon entry was startingly good though working that hob took some time. lot of effort has gone it to make it homely and we had v nice time there though my husband being six foot three was quite testing but only one time banged head. very quick to get everywhere as so many little alleyways helped us see a different side to st mawes. would definitely recommend
This is a fabulous house in a stunning location. Whatever the weather, there is always something fantastic to see from the huge lounge windows and it’s true to say there’s a holiday feel to this house come rain or shine. There’s great walks on the doorstep and St Mawes is a short walk up and down the hill. We’ve been back several times and will be rebooking next year!
We had a marvelous time at Pengerein which is wonderfully located, right on the coast path and very close to the village with the best possible views from the small terrace and windows. There are a few steps to navigate and both bath/shower rooms are on the small size, but except for that, it is tastefully furnished and very well equipped. A great place for a holiday and we have already booked it again for next Summer!
This is our second visit to this house. The house is beautiful & modern and the location ideal as it has a sea view and is very close to the village pub and shop. However, there are a few problems creeping in. The house at the other end of the block had a fly problem which i fed back on (last year), and they are creeping into this house. Very upsetting if like me you dislike flies. Housekeeping didnt turn the heating on so we arrived to a very very cold house on a bitter November afternoon. The master bedroom didnt have any towels so we used the ones in the spare room, and the bat...more
As usual everything was up to standard. Still no light in cooker hood though. We always find Helm perfect for our needs thus we continue to book our late holiday
A lovely little cottage - perfect size for the two of us. Bedrooms have high ceilings , kitchen is well equipped with a good size dining table, the lounge cosy and the bathroom clean. Great location for beach - pubs - shops - harbour etc etc The only slight downside was the outside area is always in shade , over shadowed by a high back wall and an outside gathering area for the house behind - and is very dark so we didn’t use it at all and if you like a light filled house, this isn’t for you as it’s nestled in a lovely street with houses directly in front and behind so the sun doesn’t ...more
Absolutely loved our stay here at Little Hill . The side extension room is great for an evening next to the log burner . Quirky cottage with lots of interesting nooks and crannies . The basement floor is a very useful utility area for wet wetsuits, swimmers etc . The kitchen and dining room have a lot of character and have everything you could need . The master bedroom has a beautiful view to look out to when you wake up every morning . The only small drawback for us was the beds, we're both difficult sleepers and need lots of space . As you'd expect with an old cottage the floors are not comp...more
This is a lovely place to stay, beautiful location and garden, very clean and tidy, bedrooms immaculate and nice bathroom, good furnishings, only thing I would suggest is slightly low on some items, only 2 wine glasses and one tea towel for a week, crockery could do with replacing, otherwise an idyllic place to stay and we would certainly recommend it
We visit St Mawes every year but was our first visit to Spindrift. This is such a comfortable house and really made us feel at home and the views are spectacular as we spent many hours just watching the boats. Everything was catered for, so nice to find a holiday home where they have thought of everything and John the caretaker was so friendly and always on hand if we had any problems. One small point is the shrubs to the right just need cutting down a few feet as obscure the beautiful view towards Falmouth. We love this house so perfect for entertaining and the owners have thought of everythi...more
Spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Cosy with ample heating if needed. Very clear instructions for everything. Had a slight problem initially with WiFI which was sorted out very quickly by Portscatho Holidays. Great location for everything. Very hilly but we enjoyed this as we wanted to walk. Really enjoyed our week.
Great costal escape, Lovely comfortable property with plenty of space with harbour views, great location and an arrange of places to eat and within walking distance.
Very comfortable beds, kitchen fine, oven and stove good. Handles off or faulty of at least 2 doors Radiators not running correctly: needed to be set for 28 degrees (when temperature was clearly about 19/20) and then, of course, too hot. Top of TV cabinet dirty on arrival and only one dinner plate in the house.
After an awful journey to St Mawes, we were so pleasantly surprised by such a lovely cottage. It provided us with such space and comfort, yet giving us a homely feel. The layout of the cottage gives you the most beautiful view. On the lower floor both bedrooms open up on to a private garden, providing seating and bbq. The front again has seating and small pretty garden. The cottage was extremely well equipped for our needs . We would definitely use this cottage again on further visits to St Mawes.
Lovely cottage very clean and great facilities. Habour Views better than we expected especially from the bedroom. Great location. Will be back!
An amazing location. Perfect for a small family, with a beach opposite. It even has a garage for parking. St. Mawes is a wonderful place to spend the week.
Maitlands is a lovely apartment with great views over the countryside. It is a ten minute walk to Portscatho (bear in mind down a very steep hill) and a 15-20 minute bus ride from St Mawes. Property could do with a few changes in the kitchen - a splashback behind the cooker, an extractor fan and a draining board. My family found the two single beds a bit narrow, but the double bed was very comfortable. Having Netflix was a definite bonus. A great value holiday.
Lovely holiday home in a great location. Well equipped and a warm atmosphere to the house. Though the shower room could do with a refresh. It was a shame the view from the top deck was obscured by the hedging on all sides. But none of this detracted from our enjoyment of this fabulous holiday home.
Very nice property, good views, very well equipped kitchen however a bit cramped, bathroom next to utility lacked toilet lid. We had two lovely weeks there my main criticism is if standing or sitting on the balcony you got quite strong fumes from people’s boilers below. Would I stay again, doubtful
A super 2 weeks in this spacious and well located property. The kitchen was very well equipped and cosy. A great view of the estuary from the front terrace and bedroom. Beds, duvets and pillows were good quality ( not always the case in holiday rentals). We had the most amazing weather so got to enjoy many outdoor activities close by. Coastal walks from St.Mawes round headland and as far as Portloe were stunning. Good local all shops selling delicious food and we enjoyed eating out in cafes/ pubs and on the beach. The whole family is hooked so we hope to come back.
5 Star for location .. Excellent pub Plume and Feathers food most of the day.. .. Boathouse takeaways beers etc... Well stocked local shop... beach and costal path 3 minutes away. Excellent base for walking.. you don't need your car.. Private parking for one with this cottage ( very important). Cottage comfortable... wifi works ok.... 3 bedrooms upstairs... bathroom downstairs at back. A great stay in a clean comfortable cottage which may be getting a little tired in places.
Last minute booking at the end of August. There were only two of us but so glad we treated ourselves to this place that sleeps 6! Right on Tavern Beach so you can pop down on the beach with a cuppa or a bottle of wine when the tide is out or literally step out of the door and take a dip at high tide. Easy to park the car whilst you unload and only a short walk to the car park once you have parked up for the week. Master bedroom was delightful, comfortable bed and the view whilst sitting up with a cup of tea was pure bliss. Leave the windows and blinds open and you can hear the sea & see the s...more
Portscatho holidays were very considerate and flexible during booking when the second lock down was imminent and it was difficult to decide whether we would be able to go ahead or not. In particular want to thank Frankie for helping us decide accommodation that would suit us, and keeping us well informed thought out. Yolanda
We enjoyed staying in Summers View and would consider re-booking. It is a large bungalow with an excellent view. It is a short walk (about 12 minutes) down a one in three hill to the small and charming centre of St Mawes. It is possible to park two cars on the steep drive and possibly a third across the drive entrance. Some of the furnishings (primarily Ikea) are a little worn. The TV in the sitting room does not have wi-fi and thus only live TV can be watched but there is a DVD player. The oven and hob both take a very long time to come to temperarture. The extractor fan does not work.
Views and position of property excellent.Sadly plumbing in bathrooms and kitchen needed a lot of attention and in tired condition .Also food left in freezer and not cleaned out on arrival. Access to the water was virtually impossible.
You get an excellent view of the water from the apartment and can watch the ferries come in. Very convenient for the bus, the pub, the shops and of course the St Mawes Ferry. We could not have expected more and so nicely presented with a nice large living and kitchen space. It’s certainly well equipped for a relaxing holiday.
A very comfortable and immaculate property, very well equipped. In a great location only a short distance from the harbour. Probably not ideal for anyone with mobility issues due to the short but steep hill and steps up to the property but otherwise can't fault the place. Highly recommended
Excellent property and holiday thanks. The view from the house makes it - and it is very spacious generally (the one exception being work surface space in the kitchen which is tight but fine for a holiday let).
Quiet and peaceful location in well equipped accommodation to explore the area. Local pub and lots of local walks also close to the coast and estuary. Loads of wildlife to see all around. Enjoyed our stay very much.
We very much enjoyed our stay in South Cottage. The views from the sitting room and main bedroom were beautiful. The sitting room was cosy and welcoming. The bed in the front bedroom was very comfortable. We had plenty of space but probably four people would find the cottage a little cramped. The kitchen was well equipped.(The freezer compartment could not be opened unless the top door shelf was removed from the fridge!) We had a lovely week. St Mawes weather was much kinder to us than that which the majority of the country suffered! We would certainly, as a couple, like to return to Sout...more
We had a very enjoyable break. We felt it had been cleaned thoroughly and was comfortable. The only change I would suggest is better lighting in the twin bedroom as it was dark even with the rather poor central light on!
Very comfortable house with lovely garden in a great location. Well equipped throughout and very spacious. Only 10 minutes walk to the harbour and centre of town with shops and restaurants. Lovely to sit on the deck enjoying the view over the bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday thank you and hope to return.
we liked the cottage and it's an excellent location, with a pretty shared courtyard with views of the sea and rooftops. could probably do with a bit of refreshing and six would be a squeeze as you cook eat and lounge in the same room, so there is some furniture bumping! I'd really suggest fixing those double doors and at least lag them - for the price, it should be draft proofed and there are huge gaps - we all have a duty to save energy - even if the cottage isn't lived in full time, probably even more so. Some of the cupboards were pretty chaotic - it's well equipped but we had to dig abo...more
Stables is in a beautiful location and, while compact, provides excellent value for money. The property is very pretty and unusual and the new bathroom is stylish. The location and view pretty much make up for the reservations listed below. Some of the appliances could do with being updated, e.g. a very old washing machine/unpredictable cooker/tv and the seating area is not hugely comfortable. The price reflects the fact that Stables is small, but with a few enhancements, this would certainly be a cottage to return to!
We very much enjoyed our three nights at Mizzen Top. The location is wonderful, the cottage is Very well equipped, (including with all necessary cleaning materials, despite being asked by the agents to provide our own!). We Will be back.
very positive,our second stay and hope to rebook again soon. The builders working next door on a major rebuild were very considerate Avalun is very good for dogs with the enclosed back garden
As always Tavern house is in such a beautiful and perfect location. we always love staying here is a family and love coming back. However we found this year the door handles on the downs stairs bathroom and some of bedrooms were loose causing some problems with closing doors etc. We also felt that asking customers to do an extensive inventory of everything in the property on arrival a bit excessive. It’s an exhaustive list and would take a prolonged period of time to go through all the cupboards looking for every single item on the list which is not something you would expect on arrival for ...more
Great cottage in a wonderful location but there are a number of small issues that need to be addressed. Firstly, some of the windows would not shut properly this rendering the property insecure. Secondly, I would have thought to make a better impression, that the garden could have been mown and the hedges maintained better. Small issues, I know, but the main question is.....would we stay there again???.. . Definitely!! Thank you for a wonderful cottage for a relaxing week. Ruan Pappin.
We have a big complaint which is the fact the crockery, cutlery and glasses had not been left clean by the previous users of Coast Lodge. It is most unpleasant to find other people's stuck on food on plates and pans and finger and lip prints on glasses and mugs. The plates had food stuck on them and we found teaspoons with what looked like dried yoghurt on which had been put back into the drawer without being washed ! The worst thing was a saucepan which had the remains of scrambled eggs stuck to the bottom !! Most of the glasses had not been washed properly. We had to put everything thr...more
Powder cottage is a lovely cosy warm cottage. It is so peaceful with great walks for our puppy.. there was tea coffee and biscuits for our arrival. The kitchen is so well equipped you don’t need to take Much with you. We had a Tesco delivery for when we arrived and we found an excellent curry house on Just Eat that delivers to the cottage. The only issue was the outside light wasn’t working so it was very dark coming down the steps
We were delighted with this holiday cottage. The location in the town and the views were perfect. It was very comfortable and it suited us in every way. I was disappointed with the standard of clening when we arrived. I do not think the cleaner had been in the property long, as there was a note left to say the dishwasher was still running, which probably takes about 90 minutes, so the a long deep clean between clients obviously did not apply. The lid and sides of the kitchen bin, the downstairs cloakroom floor, the inside of the dishwasher, were all pretty bad and I therefore gave the...more
We had a very pleasant stay we have stayed I. The property before so know it well. It is ideally located for the centre of the village which is handy
Running holiday let's ourselves should recommend a refresh of the mugs, cups etc as these are old. The Hoover also is too old. For 4, another lounge chair would have been good. Difficult to check out for 9am as bagging bedding up, bins etc with family as well as packing is a tall order so went the night before. But we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The agent was v helpful. It was also clean and tidy and location was fabulous.
We had a very pleasant week at Medlar cottage, however my comments are as follows 1/ it would be very useful to have some blackout blinds in the bedrooms. 2/ some curtains in the main dining room lounge would be very useful to protect you from the sun of the day, 3/the heater on the landing upstairs should be moved to the lounge, as all the heat goes upstairs and there is no heating in the lounge. 4/ the mattresses on most of the beds are in very very poor condition and need replacing.
Very good property with excellent parking. Comfortable and good facilities. Don’t know about outside as it was cold and wet. The house was warm however. We did not use the dining room as there was sufficient room elsewhere.
We have been renting properties through Portscatho holidays for many years ; the Old Diary rates very high on the list; a truly lovely property - faultless.
We were told that wifi was available, but it was not - it's nearly 2021! Would recommend if that was resolved. Very poor 4G/3G also. Cooking pans in the oven not clean (very greasy). Outside decking and table had sand everywhere, not been cleaned. Great location, and the lodge was well equipped. We were informed on the write up that due to the virus extra cleaning was required and so we had to be ready to leave by 9am. So we were up extra early to facilitate this and were ready, but nobody turned up at that time, or anywhere near it.
A spacious house in a beautiful and central location with stunning sea views both inside and outside. Well equipped and comfortable. Bedrooms, beds and bed linen/towels of high quality. I would have liked cushions for the outside chairs and a parasol for outside table.
The house was great, being 2 minutes from all amenities such as harbour to catch ferry into Falmouth or buy pasties and bread from the bakers, all other shops, restaurants etc., 10 minute hike up the hill to our friends and a few steps away from Summer beach. Although larger than we need, the house was ideal and would consider booking again for its convenience and of course the wonderful views across St. Mawes and its harbour.
Lovely property in a good location. Upstairs in particular is very lovely along with the sitting room on the ground floor. The property is very spacious and comfortable. Down stairs bedrooms are good a size with comfortable beds. Downstairs ensuite bathroom is very tired and was quite grubby. No window keys available in kitchen which is a bit challenging in the heat and if cooking. Don't always want the back door open due to rickety stairs leading down to the garden. I visited with 2 dogs and secure garden was critical. The back garden is not separated from the front so need to ensure gate...more
Nice property with excellent location. Main Bedroom en-suite shower access is difficult and steps are tricky. Kitchen utensils limited compared with other properties we have enjoyed in St. Mawes. The bedsheet for the main bedroom was too small for the bed - maybe a mistake at the laundry? Otherwise very comfortable and we enjoyed it!
It took us ONE AND A HALF DAYS to find the cutlery drawer! We found that we were OVERWHELMED by instructions and booklets and this destroyed the hope we had of a anxious -free holiday after illness, stress and care There was never any information to state that the stairs in the property needed a lot of care by over-70's and in particular during the nighjt when we had to access the toilet ...not very good health and safety. In addition the light switch for the stair light was in a very difficult place and in fact was over the top step ... for older people such as us we found this extremely d...more
