August 2017

It was a well restored house, very conveniently placed. We enjoyed staying in it very much.

July 2017

The owner was in direct contact throughout and was EXTREMELY helpful and accommodating. We experienced one minor issue with the property, and the assistance we were given, and efforts on our behalf, could not be faulted.

A beautiful property, furnished exquisitely and comfortably; we would not hesitate to recommend it, and hope to return.

The cottage is smaller than it looks in photos but saying that, there is plenty of space We were 4 adults & 3 children, we had comfortable beds, plenty of space to share, well equipped kitchen It is beautifully decorated, feels homely plus clean and modern in places It's location is ideal - the sea is less than 2 minute walk, so the lack of garden isn't an issue when you have stunning views and places to enjoy nearby Parking is easy, very close and £30 for 7 days Narrow streets in the village make driving a challenge for large vehicles - but easy to walk, it's a small village

February 2017

Russell House is the perfect Cornish retreat in one of the best villages in Cornwall. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and cosy. It is perfectly positioned on a quiet street near the harbour giving sea views and the opportunity to walk to the excellent pubs and restaurants of St Mawes. We love it and can't wait to return again soon!
