Lovely traditional Cornish seaside house. Perfectly placed for easy access to the beach in a quieter part of the village.

St Mawes is a picturesque village. Laurel cottage has the perfect location in the village. Views from every room of the sea boats activity. Really comfortable house to stay. Lovely outside space.

Wonderful holiday in a lovely cottage. Well equipped, super views and within easy walking distance of the centre of St Mawes. Would have given 5 stars if heated towel rails, DVD player and CD player hadn’t been faulty- so small problems that can be easily repaired.

Thanks so much for your review of Laurel Cottage - it's great to hear you enjoyed your stay overall and enjoyed lots of easy walking to St Mawes. We're really sorry to hear that you had experienced some issues with the heated towel rails, DVD player and CD player and we'll certainly forward this to the housekeeping team and owner for attention at the next changeover.

Thank you Classic Cottages for the most idyllic week's holiday. The cottage was comfortable and stylish. The view and setting were breathtaking. Really friendly and efficient communication before and during our stay. The only problem was we didn't want to go home.

Sorry to hear that the heated towel rail/bathroom heater wasn't working. We've let the housekeeper know and she'll arrange for this to be sorted - we've asked for a shaver adapter to be provided too. Thanks for making us aware and we look forward to welcoming you back again in June. Tanya, Customer Support

Spacious, well equipped cottage with wonderful sea views, easy access to the beach, and a short walk to the centre of St Mawes.

July 2017

We know St Mawes well. Loved the house's position in the village. Beautiful views from every window. A very comfortable house to stay in.

July 2017

Charming cottage in an ideal location. Fabulous views from the two front bedrooms.

August 2016

Laurel Cottage offers unrivalled access to Tavern Beach and was the perfect place to stay with my family at St. Mawes.

June 2016

We had the most delightful holiday in St Mawes. Laurel Cottage is so centrally located and proved an ideal choice for my chronic fatigue. The views from both front bedrooms were absolutely stunning and even the lights on the boats of night-time travellers were entertaining. The property had a magical lived in feel to it, made all the more pleasant by the choice of furnishings and contents. The unusual layout of the cottage reflected a number of similarities to our home in Hertfordshire, but with additional characteristics of front and rear terraces and conservatory that made our experience very fulfilling. It proved an inspiring place that enabled me to engage with my limited skills at some sketching and water colouring. Definitely back next year if we can secure a booking, this time for two weeks.
