It is positioned a short walk up a steep hill from the harbour, which is always a wonderful place to watch the boats come & go. The beaches of Tavern or Summers are only a little further to walk or you can catch the little ferry to Place Manor for superb coastal walks or some wild sandy beaches. There are also some excellent walks to be had from the property itself to St Mawes Castle and along the coast to St Just in Roseland with some great views across the water.

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.

Beautiful accommodation in St Mawes

The Old Dairy is situated at the top of the village, beautiful and tastefully decorated throughout. With the added advantage of a parking place adjacent to the property. Which is very rare in any Cornwall fishing village. The owners have thought of every home comfort. The only slight downside is no wifi. Though the owners mentioned that they maybe looking into providing this in the near future. Beautiful area with lovely walks. A visit to St Just church is a must do. We were so lucky with the weather which had the 'summer' heatwave. With the colour of the sea and all the tropical plants that grow because of the micro climate it was like being abroad. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this property.

Condition

The upstairs doors needed attention ie. the bathroom door was impossible to open from the inside when shut. The only way was to get help from the outside. The Dishwasher needed a cleaning agent as it smelt.

Pleasant, comfortable in a unique surrounding

The Old Dairy in St Mawes is everything what you expect from a holiday cottage. It was very cosy, clean, and felt at home from the moment we entered the cottage. Yes, there is a steep climb from the harbour, but then you loose some calories that the good food en drinks have supplied. Nice walks in and around St Mawes. I did not need the car the first days, use the ferries, or walk straight from the cottage into several directions, all with great views and well marked paths. We loved our stay in St Mawes, The Old Dairy.

The Old Dairy, St Mawes

We have stayed at the Old Dairy five or six times over the last ten years and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My only moan on this occasion is that a number of the internal doors don't close properly-a little planing needed here and there.

Could recycling facilities be provided? we were surprised that this was not required. If, boxes were in situ, it would not take much time for the caretakers to transport to the recycling bins on the carpark.

New year break

A really nice 7 day break, cottage was warm & comfortable as usual. The only problem seemed to be with the kitchen taps. When the shower was activated in the bathroom the taps in the kitchen seemed to run! You had to turn them off very tightly. Other than that everything was great.

Dog friendly cosy cottage with easy access for exploring the area.

If you bring your dog,this cottage backs onto National Trust land for walks. The cottage was cosy with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The cottage is at the top of a very steep hill but is convenient for driving to the surrounding area. We found St Mawes to be very picturesque but with limited dining venues and rather quiet for September. The Cream Tea at St Just in Roseland (Miss V's hut) was fabulous. The Rising Sun keeps good Ale and was a lovely place to unwind after a day out looking towards the harbour. All in all a very enjoyable relaxed week.

Ok cottage good location

Cottage is in a good location close to St mawes,but be warned there is a steep hill down to the village. Cottage is small and a little tired for price we paid. We were at end of season and it could do with a deep clean under beds and behind sofas etc A little update of towels crockery bedroom furniture etc would really improve the property. But that said it is well equipped and the location is stunning (Cornwall/St mawes).

Old Dairy, St Mawes

Plug hole in bath had plug of hair in it. Wash hand basin was dirty. Cooker hobb and controls were very greasy. We had difficulty with the fridge door opening and closing. Oil cloth kitchen table cloth had dried up jam or tomato sauce on it. These are all things we cleaned ourselves. Washer on hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom wash hand basin were defective, we had to turn them off very firmly to stop them dripping. We have stayed at the Old Dairy on four previous occasions and had absolutely no concerns.

It might be good idea to warn people about the steep climb up from the harbour. Besides this the location was ideal. The cottage was very comfortable.

Guest from Wokingham stayed for 7 nights.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful part of Cornwall.

With no mobile signal or wifi, a wonderful week of uninterrupted relaxation. The Old Dairy is a great property and an ideal base for exploring the Roseland. Situated at the top of a steep hill, the 5 minute walk to St Mawes is far easier than the walk back but as with most things in Cornwall, there's no rush. St Mawes itself was a mixed bag with surprisingly very few Cornish locals. Walking along the quay you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in Henley on Thames rather than a Cornish fishing village such is the influx of the haves and have yachts to the area. Look past this material veneer however and the sheer beauty of the Roseland is unquestionable. Branch out into the surrounding villages and towns for a more authentic experience and you won't be disappointed.

Lovely comfortable cottage with great facilities. Quiet location is excellent, with only a short walk to the picturesque St Mawes Harbour and small friendly town. The area has very steep parts for walking so this must be considered when booking if have special requirements.

Cosy Cottage

We are frequent visitors to the Roseland and this property is one of the nicest we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean throughout. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed for our stay and a welcoming bottle of milk in the fridge on arrival.(a nice touch). There are lovely finishing touches throughout the cottage which made us feel comfortable and at home.
