Bungalow was lovely everything you need in kitchen very clean and cosy couldn't fault anything enclosed garden for dogs The garden was lovely with its palms and trees. Lamorran Gardens were beautiful. The weather was perfect for two weeks. Perfect holiday
We loved our stay in Sloop. The property was clean and comfortable. Light and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The view was stunning and just a short walk to the beach. It was perfect!! We will definitely book it again.
I have been visiting St Mawes for the last 50 years, as a child and now with my own family, my wife and three children. The first steps into Pennygillam were a sheer joy, expectations superceded and charm personified. We have previously stayed at other places which were all enjoyed but nothing truly had given us the wonderful feel that we all felt with this property. It has charm and great ambience combined with all the amenities and space to ensure a family could only be thoroughly content. The kitchen and sitting room were beautifully laid out and furnished with great attention to detail....more
Perfect location, comfortable and well fitted out. So much space to enjoy. Nothing else to add!!!!!!
This is a lovely place to stay with sea views and a big window to sit in front and watch the sea, if you don't fancy going out. Its a very modern, comfortable, clean and tidy place. We had an unexpected problem on arrival but the customer service was excellent. I would highly recommend Mckenize to anyone.
Well what can I say. You know you've had a good holiday when you just don't want to leave at the end of the week. The location of Treveasey is outstanding as a base for places like St Mawes, Falmouth, Truro etc and some great walks straight from the front door. Peter who showed us around is absolutely brilliant and so friendly and welcoming and explained everything perfectly. I will definitely be recommending to friends.
We took a short break as a quick getaway before Christmas. Harbour View enjoys such a fantastic setting and given we took this break just to chill it was great just to do that and spend time just looking out of the window. It's a really comfortable home with nice modern fixtures and underfloor heating which was really appreciated. We'd definitely look to return at some point.
This cottage was very central and really comfortable for us. We were unsure where best to stay and the staff at Portscatho Holidays were really helpful with their suggestions and advice. We were just metres from the quay which was ideal and the accommodation we could see had been recently refurbished to a good standard. Beds and sofas are very good. Great weather for October and some nice walks along the coast.
Chymor continues to delight us each year with it's splendid location on the sea front and wonderful views across the bay. The house is hard to fault and provides everything needed for a comfortable and stylish stay. We would have preferred the rear garden grass to have been cut before our arrival but the rental team were quick to response to our request. The only elements which we would improve are: to have a larger mirror in the main bedroom; to find a way if having a larger hand basin in the shower room.
Beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean . We will definitely be going ag inain. Could use a bigger television but that's a minor niggle
We found The Old Forge comfortable,cosy and well placed for exploring the area. The well thought out conversion has been carried out to a high standard giving a light cheerful interior. Although close to the road there is little traffic and a number of convenient walks from the doorstep. We,and the dog,would be happy to return in the future.
We enjoyed our visit with long walks and watching the seabird variety from the living room. We especially enjoyed the meals at local pubs and talking with local residents. The Seahouse is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Cornwall.
We enjoyed three weeks at the amazing Tregwylan in March of this year. Despite the 'lively' weather we had a fantastic stay. The property is extremely comfortable and beautifully clean, thanks to Lily who looks after the house so well. For anyone looking for a comfortable property with unrivalled views, Tregwylan is for you. For those who may have mobility issues, just be aware that there are a number of steps outside to access the property. We didn't realise, and it was initially a bit of a struggle!
There were just a few things which would have made our stay even better, the bath towels were small, a gate at the top of the steps down to the lawn, a light over the mirror in the en-suite bathroom, another work surface in the kitchen rather than a glass topped table, the height of the television on the wall - too high. We were a little worried about the glass balustrade on the verandah, a couple of the panels have dropped down. The décor and furnishings are very well thought out and co-ordinated. There was plenty of china and glassware and everything you could need in a holiday home kitc...more
Moorings is a beautifully located elegant house. It is extremely well equipped, very comfortable and has a gorgeous garden. The views from the house and garden are breathtaking. A wonderful place for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. St Mawes village and harbour are a short, scenic walk away.
Fabulous holiday cottage. What a divine find. We couldn't believe the quality and provision of everything we could possibly think of. We had a wonderful week here and I'm sure we'll be returning. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need - a full freezer (not just an ice box), washer/dryer, even a hand blender so I made some soup. Lots of crockery and glasses and pans. It's a 1/2 size dishwasher, but we just put it on more regularly than we would have at home. The kids were thrilled to have good wifi too. The view is amazing across the hills and you can even see the sea in the distance...more
A very comfortable cottage recently refurbished and with very comfortable new beds. We liked the new lounge extension as well which complimented the cottage really well. Bravo on a great result!
Best view in Cornwall from your sunny terrace. Quiet and peaceful yet a short walk to all amenities. Well appointed house.
The appartment was really good .We spent a lovely week in sept. Its a very steep slope down to the front door and being of limited mobility found it difficult.but once inside its all on one level.We were lucky that we went late season , and managed to park ok but in high season parking could be a problem.
The property was not as clean as my last visit. Refuse not dealt with also. The cooking facilities are laughable !!!! 2 x saucepans !!! Not impressed
Great house for all the family with a beautiful garden and stunning sea views. Close to St. Mawes centre and with its own parking.
Perfect for exploring the Roseland. Admittedly no views but ideal for hoping on the foot ferry to Falmouth, the Place ferry, mooching around the village, or exploring further. 2 bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and cosy sitting room. Outside area could do with a bit of a refresh but inside is everything you need for a bit of R&R in the Roseland! Comfortable, clean, wifi, washing machine and dryer. You can drop off your stuff and park in the village car park which is literally two mins away.
Beautiful, comfortable property in a lovely part of Cornwall. Staff at Caerhays holidays were very helpful & friendly when there was a small problem on arrival & dealt with things promptly. Spacious & finished to a high standard, Parc-an-bounder is somewhere we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
We have stayed at Pengerein several times and it has always been really enjoyable. We like walking so its location is ideal for the cost path and St Anthonys Head. You can walk to Place ferry for St Mawes and then on to Falmouth. Usually a fish and chip van on one day just up the road (not this year} and there is also a pizza van on Wednesday which is excellent. Will be booking again.
This lovely little cottage is located right on the waterfront with the most fantastic view across to St Anthonys. We did not appreciate just how good the views would be until we arrived! The cottage is very nicely furnished and was very comfortable.for us. Just a lovely short walk to the quay and some good restaurants.
Great property I would definitely stay here again. Sail Loft is a lovely, spacious and comfortable property with great outdoor space. The living room furnishings are a little tired but very comfy. The view from the deck is spectacular. The location is amazing and we had a wonderful week making the most of all the different ferries and the beautiful countryside. Thanks!
This could not be better if you want to get away from it all. The Stables were warm and comfortable and in the most perfect position. A wooded valley with a stream running through. All you can hear at night is the sound of the stream and owls. And to top it all Pendower beach is only 10 minutes walk away. Splendid , we hope to come back next year.
Good base in St Mawes. Bathroom is a bit cramped if you are 6ft or over. Very limited mobile phone signal and WiFi not accessible during our stay. Kitchen well equipped and bottle of bubbly for the New Year was a thoughtful touch.
We stayed for one week in late September 2018. The property was well maintained and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, everything you would need. Instructions booklets very helpful. Only one improvement suggested would be for the use of canvas bags for recycling, as the recycling facilities in St Mawes car park are limited in what you can recycle, when we know through Cornwall council you can recycle more. This is having stayed in St Mawes before and we recycled a lot more.
Cannot argue with the views but feeling a little tired. Radiator in main bedroom did not work, but we moved the electric fire up there to take off the chill. Back room could do with curtains as the Venetian blinds are not the best. Shower dial was missing some thing and both that and hot water tap in bathroom were stiff to switch off. To be fair, we didn't bring this up at the time as it was not going to spoil the holiday. We booked for the view and were lucky with fairly mild weather. I am sure, should we have needed to, portscatho holidays would have been swift to amend. We were missing a te...more
This house has a lovely feeling about it and has the most wonderful location on the seafront. It's very spacious and we found it clean and tidy. Portscatho Holidays were helpful and prompt in dealing with any little issues. My suggestions on things that could be improved (and it all depends whether you think these sorts of things will bother you or not): the sofas and chairs in the sitting room are beyond their best by some years (decades!). There are throws over them so they didn't look awful but they are not particularly comfortable; we felt the mattress (king size in front bedroom) could d...more
The apartment was very well presented. It had all the essentials to make our stay very enjoyable, especially when we decided to eat in.
Excellent cottage, great for the 6 of us and our dog. The location is superb. We enjoyed the garden a lot and the open plan living downstairs was ideal.
We really loved staying in Castle Cottage. The beds are very comfy and lovely bathrooms . The living kitchen area has been done really well and a pleasure to sit in over looking the harbour . We would definately stay again. It can be a bit noisy late at night and first thing for deliveries but we do keep windows open so closing them does help. It wouldn’t stop us staying in this lovely well kept home again
We had a wonderful week at Poldhu in St Mawes. Poldhu exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was spacious and well decorated. It had a wonderful seaside atmosphere. The location was exceptional, with exquisite views. We loved the terrace which was a real sun trap. We found the shortcut to town at the bottom of the cul de sac after a couple of days and it was great. The walk was a little steep but were able to indulge in cream teas and Cornish pasties! St Mawes is a destination because it is off the beaten track. That really appealed to us. Wish Poldhu was our own home. It was a specia...more
A good stay at Brooke’s cottage was had by all our family on the hottest Easter weekend in St Mawes that we can remember!
An excellent base for walking on Roseland. Everything there that we needed. Fantastic views from house. Relaxing stay.
We had a lovey holiday at Tyg Wyn and there are some fantastic aspects to the house including the beautiful bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms and big kitchen. However, we struggled to find enough sensible sized glasses, plates that weren't chipped or plastic, and decent mugs. This is so easy to get right with a trip to Ikea and some fresh glasses etc but felt that the collection of garage sherry glasses, some disposable plastic ones and a couple of pint glasses from the local pub let the place down a bit. We loved the homely feel to the place with nice furniture, paintings on the walls, jigsaws...more
Great little apartment in a fantastic sea side location perfect for walking the cliff paths and enjoying Portscato's pubs and shops etc. It was lovely and warm, the heating was on for us when we arrived as requested. We enjoyed staying there and had a great time. The apartment has amazing sea views which were slightly spoilt because the windows needed cleaning. However this didnt spoil our stay.
We love going to Lorraine! The views are wonderful, from the main bedroom, conservatory and garden, there is plenty of space for six people and it is great for entertaining.
Well equipped holiday let. Pleasant views from sunroom at front and not overlooked. Good size double bedrooms. Enclosed garden that is dog proof. Easy parking for 2 cars on drive. Well equipped kitchen and utility. Plenty of crockery, glassware and cooking utensils. Interesting library. Convenient for SW Coast Path (5 minute walk away)
I love coming back to this cosy property, it is like home from home. Being able to wake-up to the sea views day after day is heaven. It is in a good location and provides a peaceful haven if you want to get away from the crowds with just enough amenities close to hand.
We stayed at Apsley for 5 nights over the Easter Bank holiday. The cottage is in a fabulous location, right in the centre of the village. There is a parking space right outside which is handy as parking in the village is very limited. The cottage itself is comfortable, there is a lovely light and bright dining area and little courtyard behind. The front garden, although small is enclosed and lovely to sit out and enjoy a drink whilst you watch the comings and goings of Portscatho. Upstairs are 3 decent size bedrooms with comfortable beds. One bedroom had a slightly tricky step if you had ...more
Mizzen Top was an excellent choice for my wife and myself. The location was superb (a few steps up the path from the street, Marine Parade, but worth it) we enjoyed having our meals at the small table by the front window with that spectacular view. The living room and kitchen are very spacious and stylish. Upstairs the main bedroom overlooks the bay, the bed is very comfortable and the decor uncluttered and appropriate for the setting. The second bedroom is to the back of the property, with 2 twin beds it would be fine for kids (or adults). The bathroom is fully tiled with a shower over the tu...more
We had a lovely week staying in Buckingham cottage and it provided an excellent base for our week in Cornwall. Unfortunately the week started off stormy and freezing temperatures and the house's heating system couldn't cope. The house has many drafts and we had to request extra heating. Portscatho holidays were very helpful and attentive. The upstairs bedrooms are lovely with fantastic views. The bathroom is very spacious and clean. The downstairs open plan room is smaller than the pictures portray and a little cluttered for four people.
Lovely house and location. Have dogs and could do with a better description of the garden as not all fenced off and access to neighbours easily available. Presume neighbours have rights of way over the garden but again not clear. As others have said, the use of the aga as the sole available hob in a house of this size is not good. The cooker was temperamental and if there were 8 in the house it would have been very frustrating. The immediate neighbour spent the whole week with power tools which made sitting out noisy. Realise this is not something anyone has control over!
A delightful and charming cottage in a quiet location, attractively furnished and comfortable with everything needed for your stay including a large TV should the weather be poor. It is set in a secluded, attractive terraced garden with patio table and chairs but it is worth noting that the steep steps down from the lane might be tricky for the less mobile. Ruan Lanihorne is a very peaceful village at the head of the river and has a lovely church, an excellent pub, lots of good walks and is close to Pendower Beach, Portscatho and St Mawes.
Ketch is situated in a prime location with stunning views of the bay and out to sea. As such it would be highly recommended, however the property is sadly in need of a makeover. The heating is limited to electrical radiators which are not terribly efficient. The property is draughty (especially the front door) as there is no double glazing and there is a problem with condensation. I imagine that this would be a real problem over the winter months. The kitchen is adequate but the crockery and cutlery are very old and some is stained. The main bedroom is comfortable with a good bed but the...more
Perfect location for watching the activity in the harbour, very close to great restaurants and beach activities such as kayaking. We enjoyed the sunny patio and having our own parking space was vital when it got busy. It was also useful having the holiday company situated nearby.
The Old Diary is charming & oozes character. Having a 90 year old in our party we thought the ground floor bedroom & ensuite would be ideal. However, there are 2 deep steps between the lounge & the corridor leading to the ground floor bedroom. This was not a problem going down, but getting up the steps was more of a problem as there was nothing to hold on to. A rail of some sort would be extremely helpful. Having rented properties with Portscatho Holidays in the past we were slightly disappointed that the property wasn't up to their usual high standard of cleanliness. The kitchen bin was dirty...more
We loved our stay here and would book again. It's a fairly steep walk up to the house from St Mawes, but our three-year-old managed fine, as did a relative with a heart condition, albeit slowly. The house is really well-stocked with things to make a stay easier and more enjoyable, for example lots of cooking utensils including a food processor/mixer, as well as thoughtful things like some garden toys, board games and children's toys, useful books. The sitting room is very comfortable and there's a DVD player as well as the TV. The downsides were: a rather uncomfortable mattress and pillows in ...more
The parking is a plus but the access to it is very tight. If you are driving anything but quite a small car I would recommend approaching by Upper Castle Road, then Newton Road , then (as per your directions) Chapel Terrace and Riviera Lane. The house is in a nice situation , close to the front (Lower Castle Road) and so a short walk to everything. Being "upside down" with bedrooms on the ground floor and the living/dining space above you get the benefit of an east west alignment with great light from dawn to dusk. There is a small terrace which also gets the sun and would be pleasant for m...more
We had a great week in Spry's cottage. The cottage is centrally located, ideal for beach, shops etc. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one could need during a week in St Mawes. The three bedrooms were all a good size, with sufficient storage. We were fortunate to have lovely weather, and the garden was great for sitting out in, to catch the evening sun. I wouldn't describe the cottage as smart, but it was perfect for a family and dog!
We enjoyed our stay at Lan-y-mor, & felt comfortable there. Bathroom,Ensuite,Kitchen was v.good. although the Bathroom needs re-decorating, particularly the paint work. It seems this part of the house has been updated recently, and the owner may be doing it in stages. The sea views are excellent. There was no cleaners left at all, i.e. toilet or hob cleaner. The hob was desperate for a clean. The oven was dirty where people had not wiped it out. The pictures need re-newing. It would be handy if the owner had an outside contractor to clean the oven every so often, even if the price we...more
I grew up in St Mawes in the 1970s and staying at Polvarth Cottage was like stepping straight back to that era. It is a lovely house, in a good location but the owners need desperately to update it. Especially the awful double bed which is the most uncomfortable bed my wife and I have ever slept in. I had to drive to Homebase and buy a sheet of thick MDF to put under the mattress or my wife would've gone home, it was that bad!! Storage space for clothes is very limited; loading / unloading is not easy as Bohella Road is so narrow and the hob has a mind of its own. However, we had a grea...more
Lets start with the good bit, the view that was marvellous. The kitchen needed a good clean, bread crumbs by toaster and dishwasher need a clean under the door. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge sitting uncomfortable and television not working( this was sorted out by Porthscatho Holidays). Main bedroom bed very uncomfortable. Tried sleeping in other beds in the house they were also as uncomfortable left a day early as both my husband & I need a good night sleep. Bathroom is dated and the heater in this room was not working, ( did report this) dry towels by a heater in the hall way, and when ha...more
