Guest from Macclesfield stayed at Newton Cottage for 7 nights in July
We had a really excellent holiday and the cottage was great. The weather did help. The cottage was very well appointed and child friendly with a location which is superb for access to the many restaurants etc in St Mawes. Harder to get back up the hill.

Guest from stayed at Newton Cottage for 14 nights in June
The cottage was well set out & very comfortable. There were 2 lounges with TVs which was great in the evening for watching different things. The internet was reasonably fast with boosters around the house for access in every room. Everything we needed was there & everything in good condition. Only parking for 2 cars would be a problem in the peak summer but luckily we could park a 3rd car reasonably close as we went before the peak season. For dog owners or for children the rear garden is enclosed which is good. The village of St Mawes is very pleasant although it is a very steep hill to get up & down from it. This would not be suitable for anybody with mobility difficulties as even pushing a buggy back up the hill was exhausting. Mind you, you can always drive down & back & use the car park in the village. The cottage did not really have a sea view but to be honest you didn't really miss that. The area around St Mawes is very pleasant with plenty of walks & a lot of great beaches. The Lizard is only a short drive away to reach the beaches there. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks there & would not hesitate to use the cottage again if we returned to the area.

Guest from Barnt Green stayed at Newton Cottage for 7 nights in May
Damp in the walls is difficult to accept. Otherwise a clean and well presented property. Great location. Pleasing to see small things like dishwasher tablets etc provided
Reply from Fiona ConoleyI very much hope you enjoyed your stay in St.Mawes. I apologise for the "damp" you found in one of the bedrooms. As you maybe aware, Cornwall suffered truly dreadful storms over this winter and the deluge of rain was unrelenting from around Christmas time until February. This coupled with the fact that the cottage for the most part is over 100 years old and is constructed of cob walls meant that a mild dampness came through into the bedroom. Once the rain stopped we had the outside walls totally re-waterproofed and have had to wait for the thick walls to dry before re painting, which is being done now. This should mean that this little patch of dampness should not return. I sincerely hope that your visit was not not marred by this and hope that you will visit this lovely part of the world again.

Guest from Nottingham stayed at Newton Cottage for 7 nights in March
great cottage in a great location. This was our second stay there. Two minor points: My Wife could not open her bedroom window,(screwed closed, sash window) and again the kitchen does not have a microwave oven!. Apart from that the cottage is excellent.
Reply from Fiona ConoleyI am delighted that you have enjoyed your stay again in St. Mawes ! I just wanted to let you know that thanks to your feedback we have now provided a microwave oven. We always appreciate positive suggestions. Thank you.

Guest from Bideford stayed at Newton Cottage for 8 nights in October
Newton Cottage is a lovely cottage in a really beautiful and becoming increasingly exclusive little Cornish village. In particular the kitchen/dining/lounge area is beautifully done, offering a very social gathering area - we spent most of our time in this room. Super kitchen area and work surfaces, beautiful wooden flooring - ideal when you have dogs, and the sofas were very comfortable with a contemporary splash of colour. The newer areas of the cottage have been upgraded and refurbished beautifully, the two downstairs bathrooms are nicely appointed and finished (even though the mirror shelf in one of them was broken and had come away from the wall - an apologetic note was left by the housekeeper, but I'm surprised this hadn't been fixed as the cottage was empty the week prior to our arrival). Nice garden, although the patio loses the sun by mid-afternoon, and the previous occupants had left a full dog poo bag for us there (not so nice!). I think there's meant to be a light at the end of the garden near the steps (switch inside the house suggested their might be) but we never found it - luckily we had brought torches to see our way in and out of the garden at night. If I were being picky, there weren't enough utensils in the kitchen for cooking/serving meals, and many of the cups/mugs were chipped (the result of a busy summer I would surmise). The downstairs double bedroom, like upstairs, is not of the same standard as the ground floor, and it would be nice if it were upgraded to the standard of the rest of the cottage (I assume this is 'work in progress'). There were places on walls where holes had been filled in but not rubbed down and repainted, window frames were a bit dirty and needed a good scrub, upstairs double room had iron burn marks in the carpet and a shower which you can't get into without opening the door to the shower room itself. We couldn't access the garden from the parking area without going through the house as the gates to the garden were securely padlocked and no key provided. The location was good - within easy walking distance of the village restaurants, pubs, shops, harbour, and local coastal paths but it did feel somewhat 'squeezed' in amongst other houses. As I say, these are only minor issues and in spite of them we had a most enjoyable time.

S
t Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.

St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.

There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes’ walk including a well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.
