Mr Crawford October 2023
The location of this cottage is fantastic, close to the beach, shops and pubs and is ideal for a small family
Mrs Ingram October 2023
Our second year running at Brackley. We were pleasantly surprised and delighted this year to find on arrival the house had been redecorated , with new carpets and bathroom flooring throughout. All together providing a much fresher feel to an already comfortable accessible and affordable holiday let in a much loved village we have been visiting non stop since 1980!
Mr Suckling September 2023
Lovely spacious cottage well fitted out, with good views over the estuary and beach. Private parking.
Mr Norton August 2023
Brackley house, is a lovely cottage close enough to the sea and shops that it takes seconds to get to either, but far enough away you don’t hear noise from the Rising Sun pub or Idle Rocks Hotel. We would recommend St Mawes and Brackley House to everyone.
Mrs Needham July 2023
Fantastic property! Beautiful views whether good or bad weather. Very quiet, relaxing, well equipped homely property in central St. Mawes & fantastic to have an onsite parking. Thank you
Ms Field July 2023
Perfect location and great views and comfortable. E we’re really able to relax here. So lovely we booked to come back before we’d left!
Mrs Wilkinson June 2023
Brackley House is a lovely property with lovely views with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Will be booking again for next year.
Mr Tinsley June 2023
Overall an excellent surprisingly quiet central location with great views and plenty of space
Mrs Proctor May 2023
We have stayed at Brackley House a number of times over the years. We were delighted to see this time when we walked in that the house had been re carpeted and decorated throughout along with new flooring in the bathrooms. This has really brightened the house up, it’s a very comfortable house with plenty of space.
In addition there is a good size parking space which is unusual for St Mawes
It has a great view over Summers beach from the lounge and balcony.
We would stay here again.
The house is very convenient for the village, with just one hill to the centre and harbour where you can find shops, cafes and restaurants.
Mrs. faulks April 2023
A very well equiped house with a large, airy kitchen, comfortable dining room with large table for spreading maps and excellent sitting room with good TV and access to outdoor area. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable with an adjoining ironing room proving very useful. We are well into our seventies and found Brackley excellent for walking to the shops, ferries, beach etc. We loved it!
Mrs Thomson September 2022
Very disappointed with the cottage. Photographs on the website show rooms looking cleaner, brighter and much nicer in the photographs than they actually are. These are old photographs. Decor and furnishings tired and in need of attention.
Floors, carpets and skirting-boards extremely dirty. Cupboards grubby inside.
The cottage obviously had not been cleaned properly for some considerable time and cannot have been inspected by Classic Cottages recently. We would not recommend staying in this cottage until it has undergone a deep clean and improvements to the decor. Poor value for money.

We're so sorry that Brackley House didn't hit the mark for you, and are really grateful for you sharing your thoughts with us and with the owner. We have carried out an inspection as a result of your comments, and fed back our findings. Following a very busy season, the owner has blocked out some time to carry out a schedule of refurbishment and renovation works over the winter months, and your suggestions are helpful in prioritising the order of works. Tanya, Customer Support
MRS SWINTON July 2022
This property is very tired and smelly, the cleanliness is not great either.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks so much for your feedback. We so wish we'd known during your stay that you felt the cleanliness needed more attention as usually any issues can be easily rectified, and we'd have happily asked the cleaning team to return. Despite this, we really hope you enjoyed your stay in St Mawes overall. Kelsey, Customer Support
Mr Wilkinson June 2022
Lovely cottage and fantastic views. Bonus having the car parking space. Already going to book for next year.
Mr Challen June 2022
Great location with lovely views and the covered parking space is a real bonus. Everything you need close by, would stay here again.
Mrs Rodger May 2022
Terrific location and the massive advantage of parking. Good space within accommodation and very useful balcony to catch views and rays.
Mrs Swales May 2022
A great location with sea views, particularly of Summers Beach.
Mrs Holden April 2022
We had a lovely week in Brackley House in St Mawes. The cottage is in a good position in the village and in an excellent location for exploring the surrounding area. Plenty to do and see with an excellent choice of places to eat. The cottage was lovely if perhaps a little tired decor wise but it had everything needed for a good holiday .
Miss Renner October 2021
Fantastic location, stunning views from the living room/balcony. Very comfortable, well equipped kitchen. Fantastic base to explore the area. Beaches are just stunning.
Mrs Blakeway August 2021
We stay regularly in Brackley House which is an attractive house in a central location in St Mawes with parking. One of our favourite features is the balcony with views towards Summers beach.
Mr Hill June 2021
The cottage is in an excellent location although the furnishing are showing signs of wear and tear due to the age.

Mrs Nicholl June 2021
My granddaughter had a great holiday in St Mawes with amazing weather. She was already familiar with Brackley House having stayed in the property several times before. It was her boyfriends first visit to Cornwall and , like the rest of us is hooked!! She missed the usual vase of dahlias on the dining room table! Our thanks to the owners and all at Classic Cottages.
Mrs Hensley May 2021
Lovely, clean cottage in an ideal setting with beautiful views. Very close to pubs and cafes in the village yet very quiet and secluded.
Mr McLeod May 2021
The cottage was very conveniently located at the centre of the village and had great views from all upstairs windows. The parking space in the car port was much appreciated, as well as the lovely balcony above. It exceeded our expectations and we would recommend.
Miss Dale May 2021
A lovely stay!
Mrs Spikings April 2021
We thought Brackley House was great, it had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The furnishings are a little dated but we didn’t find that an issue. The main bed was very comfortable meaning we slept well. We loved the view from the balcony especially. The location is excellent, although the hill up to the house is very steep and someone with mobility issues might find it difficult. All in all a real find!
Mr Crawford April 2021
Really comfortable cottage that gives you peace and quiet while just being yards away from a great beach and a bustling village centre
Reply from Classic Cottages
We are delighted to read that you found the cottage to be comfortable and that it was peaceful and quiet. We hope that you enjoyed some relaxing days at the property andon the beach! We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support
Mrs Dennis September 2020
Not as good as it looks
Mrs Rice August 2019
Brackley House is well located to enjoy St Mawes. It is within easy walking distance of pubs, shops, harbour, beach and castle. It is an upside down house and has a good view from the balcony and first floor rooms. It is spacious and well equipped. The interior would however benefit from an upgrade and maintenance.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for reviewing Brackley House - we're so pleased you had a great time overall and found the location particularly convenient. We've noted your comments regarding a few maintenance points and we've forwarded to the housekeeping team for their attention at the next changeover - thanks for letting us know. Bryony, Customer Support

Excellent location in the heart of St Mawes, close to the harbour and beach. Ideal base for exploring the Roseland
Mr Sutton May 2019
A lovely cottage in a great location with wonderful views. We love St Mawes and enjoyed another lovely holiday in Brackley House!
Mrs Ellis March 2019
A very enjoyable stay in a bright, welcoming cottage. The position is stunning and very convenient and the cottage is well-equipped. The reversed living/sleeping accommodation makes the most of the wonderful views.
Mr Sales September 2018
Nice homely cottage, close to village amenities with parking and well equipped with everything you need.
Mrs Doughty August 2018
Brackley House is a light airy cottage with good views and a sunny balcony. There is ample accommodation for four adults and two children and the cottage is well-equipped. All of the village amenities are close at hand with easy access to the ferry for trips further afield.
Mr Hill June 2018
This is a great location perfect for the village of St Mawes the parking is a bonus along with the sun terrace. Have already booked next years
Mrs Swales June 2018
A very clean cottage in a wonderful location near the harbour in St Mawes. Great views from the balcony where we ate every day. We bought a Mussel card which gave us free travel for several days on the local ferries, trains & buses. The ferries run frequently and are easy to use.
Mrs Proctor May 2018
Excellent position for the beach, restaurants and shops. Sea views (over the tops of buildings) from upstairs. Parking space (which is unusual in St Mawes)
Mr Sutton May 2018
An excellent property in an excellent location.
Mr Fry July 2017
Great location and very clean, Brackley House was the perfect base for our family to explore the Roseland and surrounding areas.
Mrs Hare May 2017
It actually exceeded our expectations. We hadn't realised that we would have views from all the windows upstairs. It was really comfortable and spacious. It's location was perfect and the fact that there was room for a car was a bonus. Would definitely go back and recommend to others.
Mr Adams November 2016
a wonderful retreat with real character yet plenty of room
Mrs Bolderson September 2016
