We stopped at the Pilchard Shed after another company cancelled our booking at the last minute.

To be honest we were worried it would be a bit cramped, but when we got there we were blown away.

True It is a small space, but it is beautifully and so thoughtfully designed that we had room to store everything and found the bathroom and kitchen more than met our needs.

The fixtures and fittings are all of a very high quality.

The Pilchard Shed makes for a fabulous getaway for a couple in the stunning fishing village of St Mawes. We can’t recommend it highly enough.
