Great house to stay in to enjoy St Mawes and surrounding area. Location great House facilities excellent Would stay again for sure

We booked Octopus House for a family get together, we couldn’t have hoped for better. The house was spacious and immaculately clean, the beds were very comfortable and everything we needed had been thought of and provided. The welcome pack of scones, home made jam, clotted cream and a bottle of wine were much appreciated. It was a perfect base for exploring St Mawes and The Roseland Peninsula, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
