St Mawes Cottages

Gazing out over the River Fal towards Falmouth, St Mawes is undeniably the picture-perfect Cornish town. Situated within the Roseland peninsula, only a short drive from local beauty spots St Just in Roseland, Portscatho and St Anthony, St Mawes combines the very best of the Cornish coast with the stunning surrounding countryside. Explore this beautiful area in one of our St Mawes cottages.

With its shawl of beautiful blue water, guests to the area are able to make the most of the village's nautical connection. Whether you love boats or beaches, there is something to suit everyone. A ferry regularly runs between St Mawes and Falmouth, and there are sailing and fishing trips available for those looking for a bit more action. Two lovely, safe-swimming beaches sit on either side of the St Mawes harbour, and with Porthcurnic and Pendower beaches nearby, you can treat yourself and relax in the sand.

There's plenty to enjoy around the harbour too, whether you just want to watch the boats and yachts pass by, wander through the streets shouldered by traditional cob cottages, or find a nice café or restaurant with delicious food. Tempting shops and attractive galleries line the streets and St Mawes castle, open all year round, perches dramatically at the edge of the bay, so you can enjoy not only the abundance of natural beauty but the wealth of culture and history.

Throughout the seasons, St Mawes remains consistently charming and welcoming; cold pints in the warm summer sunshine to retreating from the crisp winter air and snuggling up beside an open fire in one of the village's pubs. With so much to do and see St Mawes will surely capture your imagination and secure a place in your heart.
