St 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.

Excellent cottage for family holiday. Need some energy for the hill

The property is ideal for a largish extended family. Our only minor compliant is that due to the cleaning needed prior to our arrival we weere slightly late entering. We found an absense of cleaning materials, cloths and items like oven gloves which measn that it is hareder to keep the cottage clean during a stay. The provioson of games, wifi, tvs etc is excellent and helps with the rare rainiy days. Also it is good for entertaing young children. We love it ans have unianimously voited to come again

Reply from Fiona Conoley

I am delighted that you have enjoyed another holiday at Newton Cottage. I apologise for the delay in your entry to the house at the start of the week. Unfortunately extremely unusually, there was considerably more work than is usual for the housekeepers to prepare the house for new guests and this took more time than is usually necessary. I am very pleased to see that you'll be returning next year.

Fabulous Cottage In St Mawes

Newton Cottage is a fabulous house. The location is great - you can walk to the sea and village and there are lots of great walks from the doorstep. The house is extremely comfortable and has a good selection of board games so inclement weather was not a problem! The kitchen is very well equipped so we enjoyed cooking there and appreciated the selection of recipe books. We thought it was excellent value for money and would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful house

Stayed with family and friends in October and were delighted at the spacious accommodation. We have been to St Mawes on many occasions and were surprised to find this gem which was amazing value for what we paid and had also had space for 2 cars. Although the house is situated near the top of a hill the seafront can be accessed from the Castle road which has amazing views across the estuary to Falmouth for those who don't care to walk down the steep hill. So if you are looking for a large comfortable house for your next holiday check out Newton Cottage you won't be disappointed! We will definitely be back to newton Cottage in the near future!

Clean and comfortable. Rosedene Peninsula is lovely, secluded, but location was perfect for what we wanted, a nice quiet break. Plenty of dog friendly beaches within a few miles and dog friendly pubs in the town.

Holiday in St Mawes July 2015

The cottage is ideal for our purpose - six adults - 2 young children and two dogs.We first came to St Mawes when our children were young and wanted to come back with our grandchildren. The cottage is very child friendly with lots of games etc for wetter days. Good access to the village and paths for walking. Hope to return next year.

Yet again abother fab weekend

This is our second visit to newton cottage and all was fab again. The only tiny issue was the shower room upstairs was not pleasant. Slight patches of mould and cobwebs in a few of the bedrooms but other than another great stay. Wouldn't stop us returning and are already looking at rebooking. Just wanted to make the issue known in case cleaning staff were dropping standards.

Reply from Fiona Conoley

Thank you so much for your review. I am delighted you had another very happy weekend at Newton Cottage. We are off to spend the weekend there now and will be able to see what the issues are. I am always grateful when guests point any problems out so that we can quickly resolve them.

Beautiful house in a lovely village

When I booked Newton Cottage - it looked too good to be true! - Very reasonably priced with plenty of rooms which looked immaculately furnished - where was the catch?? - well there was't one. It really was a lovely house - very large with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to cater for a large groups needs. A particular treat was the second sitting room which was cosy and came with a large TV which meant there were no arguments over who wants to watch what in the evenings! Internet connection worked very well throughout the house, although mobile reception was patchy, but the house had provided a landline for short calls if needed. If I had to find one thing that might need improvement, I would say the bathroom containing the bath could maybe do with an upgrade - I am sure this is probably on the list as the rest of the house is really beautiful. I was happy with the location even though it is not right on the seafront and there is a 5-10 min walk into town down a steep hill, but we didn't find this a problem at all. Would definitely stay here again if I was in St Mawes.

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.

A Great Cottage in a Great Location

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.

1 week stay

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 Conoley

I 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.

Review of Newton Cottage, St Mawes (October 12-19, 2013)

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.
