Right on the harbour side in the centre of St Mawes, Brackley Cottage is ideally located for all of the attractions of this classic old Cornish fishing village. With its stunning views over the harbour and out over the fields of St Anthony’s headland from the master bedroom and quirky, almost triangular second bedroom and kitchen, what could be more perfect?

Property Details

Brackley Cottage is located right in the centre of St Mawes opposite the lovely inner harbour. There are shops, pubs, restaurants, gift shops and a post office within a few paces of the front door. The foot ferry to Falmouth and the little ferry over to Place Manor are also right on Brackley’s doorstep. The cottage has been ingeniously restored to maximise the space available and it is both beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped. With its stunning views over the harbour and out over the fields of St Anthony’s headland from the master bedroom and quirky, almost triangular second bedroom and kitchen, Brackley is the perfect holiday hideaway.

Accommodation
Ground Floor: Porch leading to lounge. Into the kitchen / dining area with stairs to the first floor.
First Floor: Master double bedroom (4'6" bed) with views of the harbour. Shower room with separate WC and hand wash basin. Very small guest bedroom, double bed (4' wide) normal length on one side, narrowing to 175cm (5'8") on the inside.

Heating is via night storage heaters and additional electric heaters. The kitchen is very well equipped with a range of cupboards, kettle, toaster, electric oven & hob, microwave, washing machine & fridge. In the lounge area there is a TV & DVD Player as well as an iPod docking station. There is an iron and ironing board available. WiFi is available at the cottage.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, heating, bed linen & towels are all included. One well behaved dog is permitted at the property at the cost of £30 per week, but please do bear in mind the cottage is quite small so it is not probably suitable for larger breeds. We regret no smoking is permitted. Use of the open fire is strictly prohibited. Regrettably there is no parking at Brackley although there are public car parks nearby.

General Booking Information
Arrival / Departure is a Friday.
Short breaks are available during quieter periods.

Property Location


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.

A magical family holiday

We absolutely loved Brackley Cottage and beautiful St Mawes. The location is amazing and the children loved looking out onto the harbour (and jumping in when the tide was in!) Everything we needed was there, so thoughtfully and tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings and equipment. We have a 4 and 6 year old and think weA?d easily get away with fitting in for a good few more summers yet, weA?re already planning next year! Thank you for a magical family holiday, the cottage and location were perfect.

Would recommend

We loved staying at Brackley Cottage, right in front of the harbour, in Dt Mawes. The Cottage was well equipped and very cosy. Just be careful if youA?re tall.....my husband kept hitting his head, there wasnA?t a lot of room, but I loved it. Excellent location, but if youA?re looking for long lay ins, book somewhere away from the front, shops etc. It wasnA?t overly noisy, apart from one morning a delivery lorry parked right outside, under our bedroom window! This said, you donA?t want to stay in bed with so many beautiful places to visit.

Small but perfectly placed

Lovely stay at Brackley Cottage ideal base for the Roseland. . Cottage although small has stunning views over the harbour, easy walking distance of pubs and restaurants 5 minutes at most, Falmouth Ferry and car park. Although no on site parking a weekly tickets is only AGBP30 and it's less Than am 5 minute walk. You can unload outside. Not really suitable for 4 adults maybe two and one child as smaller bedroom is rather tight and bed is built in. Bed in main room is harder than we are used to. The other drawback was that we were not informed of restoration work on the adjoining buildings until the day before we left home. Thankfully it didn't affect our holiday. I'd definitely book it again.

Really lovely cottage. Amazing use of small space. I wouldn't want to be 4 adults, but for two adults it was okay. For a family with two kids it might work, but double bed for children? A cheese grater would have been a useful addition to the kitchen utensils. All in a all a great little cottage all jaunty and lovely.

Brackley Cottage

We stayed for a week in September. There were only two of us and I agree with previous reviews that this is a 3 people maximum Cottage although 2 little children would lovely the little quirky bedroom! Cleanliness was excellent and 2 little problems dealt with immediately (although I had only noted these for to be done at change over day as they were only minor). Only two things to note. Whilst the Cottage is in the middle of the village within short walking distance to all amenities if you are a light sleeper you may not like the delivery vans turning up from 6am for the store 3 doors away. Thankfully it didn't bother us too much. Darker curtains would be wonderful to help residents get a lie in! We would have appreciated information on bin days, recycling, and operation of cooker, microwave etc.

Brackley cottage June 2018

Good location the only downside being the number of large vehicles pulling up outside to deliver goods to both the Co-op and the nearby hotel and cars pulling up outside the front window on double yellow lines to shop at the Co-op which spoilt what was otherwise a good view We also think a small freezer or at least a fridge with an ice compartment would have been a great asset in hot weather.

Lovely cottage overlooking the harbiur

A lovely cottage right on the harbour front. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Tracey who looks after the cottage was fabulous!! Very central for visiting lots of places, ferry to Falmouth, Lost Gardens of Helligan, Trellisick and many more. Only real downside is the amount of traffic that goes past the window plus the vans and cars that park right outside (even though there are double yellow lines). Puts the house in darkness! Found the restaurants incredibly expensive!

The cottage was in very good condition, The second bedroom was quite small, although with just 3 persons it was adequate, but with one more, could have been uncomfortable!!. workmanship within the cottage was very good. Toilet basin could still have been slightly larger and the finish on the floor I am sure is still to be completed' . Overall we were mainly impressed.

Lovely location shop next door pubs all within 100yards perfect.the view of the harbour out side your lounge window was to die for.All pluses but there is a minor point and that is the 2nd bedroom is not a double bedroom at all its fitted into the corner of the room with a wardrobe build above the bed so yo have to kneel on the bed to get your clothes.This is a one bedroom cottage.

Very comfortable stay in an ideal location

Located centrally in the stunning surroundings of St Mawes Brackley Cottage did not disappoint. Its harbour front location was ideal for sea views and watching the comings and goings around the harbour. Had no problem parking outside for unloading/loading with the central car park just 200m away. The cottage was prepared excellently by Tracey, who was also very helpful during our stay with local information. Whilst on the small side it was more than adequate for 2 adults (and 2 children if required). Not sure if 4 adults would find the sleeping accommodation suitable though. The kitchen was great with good quality equipment, crockery, etc. We overcame the lack of ice-making facility by buying packs from the shop next door. In summary, we will rebook Brackley Cottage without hesitation.

Lovely cottage with everything you need! Very clean with nice little touches here and there. Fantastic views over the harbour! St Mawes is a charming place with plenty of places to eat and drink whatever your preference. A good base as it's easy to get around from St M either by ferry or road or floating bridge - King Harry ferry! It's a shame the Victory pub was closed! The only negative for Brackley cottage was the tiny wash hand basin, far too tiny for a main whb! Would stay here again tho!

Great location

We chose this cottage purely because of its location right next to the harbour side because we were taking my elderly mother away for a five day break and she is unable to walk for long distances The location is excellent not to buisy or noisy with easy walking to the local C.o.o.p supermarket small amount of shops and several pubs/restaurant that St Mawes has to offer There is no parking with this cottage but there is a short stay drop off parking right outside the cottage and a large long stay car park only 150 yards down the road In the harbour there's daily ferrys to Place and Falmouth For the watersport enthusiasts the harbour slipway is over the road from the cottage along with a shingle stretch if beach witch was ideal for me to do some open water swimming Dogs are allowed at the cottage but only small ones because there is very limited space inside And you can take the dog on the beach from 1st October There are also many other beaches in the area ware dogs can go any time if the year. All in all a great break The only fault we could mention and it didn't really reflect on the accomadation is that the local coop down the road was closed during our stay because of refurbishment and the builders were working all hours to get the job done

Wonderful St Mawes!

Our week spent at Brackley Cottage was excellent. The Location is perfect for all amenities. The Housekeeper was most helpful when we had an exceptional thunderstorm during one night, which caused a few problems with rainwater ,which we felt we had to report in fairness to the owner. All in all a great little cottage!

Excellent location. Comfortable clean accommodation

It would have been good to know beforehand the price of the car park. It was AGBP30 fi the week in pound coins which of course we didn't have although they changed the meter whilst we were there and you can now use cash card. The second bedroom could not support two full grown people but as only three of us it was ok. House always smelt musty even though housekeeper used several air fresheners. Not sure how you could combat that. Maybe washing machine could be changed for washer/dryer as no outside area to hang washing and had trouble getting it dried. However I loved the cottage. The location was excellent with the coop almost next door. No real need to leave St. Mawes all week. Plenty to do and see and we had especially good weather which always helps.

tracie who looks after this cottage is very helpful we need to go back out of season to experience the locale from a different aspect.brackley is a converted fisherman cottage cant fault location st mawes has an issue with parking after all it was never designed to take the volume of trafffic and if you can walk there are many things to see and enjoy.as to the cottage it had all the amenities /equipment well thought out we only used the toaster and ketttle did no cooking and the shower was almost as good as ours at home! the very nature of the property means that one has to be agile probably suits two relatively able adults and one child probably 7 plus corners stairs and door heights could be challenging properties built in the 19thcentury often cause issues for those born in the mid 20th century and later !!

Brackley Cottage is a beautiful little cottage right on the harbour front. It has a very well equipped kitchen with everything that's needed butI feel it would benefit from a fridge with an ice box as opposed to just a larder fridge. I do think that it would be very difficult for 4 adults to stay in this cottage as the second bedroom, albeit really nice, does pose a problem with the narrowing of the bed. Overall, Brackley is a lovely cottage with an excellent location and for 2 adults and 2 children it would be ideal.

Lovely cottage on harbour side

Brackley cottage is a small cottage, next to the harbour. Very small, but space was adequate for 3 of us. It has everything that you need. A freezer would have been good- but where would you put it? Although there are double yellow lines outside the living room window which has a lovely view, there is a constant stream of delivery vans, cars & coaches that park there & this can be very irritating. This is especially so when the coach has his engine running under your bedroom window early in the morning or people are peering in at you. The smoke alarms are VERY sensitive & seem to go off as soon as you even look at the cooker! We did have a lovely stay & would stay there again.

Brackley Cottage

We had a great week in this old, quaint, small cottage. The position was perfect in the centre of the village, and next to the harbour, so we could swim each morning before breakfast.

Great location for couple

This cottage was in a perfect location in St Mawes, overlooking the harbour and a few steps from the ferries to St Anthony and Falmouth, and the well stocked local shop. It was clean and well equipped. The cottage was appointed beautifully despite its size and odd shape. Any more than 2 people would struggle, as there was only seating in the front room for 3 at most, and the second bedroom was little more than a single room, needed to store luggage. The views from the front room and front bedroom made up for a lot.

Brackley Cottage, St Mawes

The property which is in an excellent position, (even allowing for people who park on double yellow lines and prevent what is a lovely view from the ground floor window), was in good condition, clean and tidy on arrival. The caretaker Tracey was informative and helpful. I would recommend this property, but would suggest that it is suitable for a couple + one child.

A great week!!!

To fault the location of the cottage would be churlish! How wonderful for our children to be able to be on the shoreline within seconds of leaving the front porch... We thoroughly enjoyed everything St. Mawes had to offer, we can highly recommend the Tresanton for Sunday Lunch, The Rising Sun for an afternoon pint and the Victory Inn for a lovely Pub meal! The bakers and butchers, really lovely!!! Brackley Cottage was more than adequate for what we wanted. No ice box, no colander but strangely a tin to bake cakes in? More hot water would have been nice, as a family of four the last person had a very short chilly shower!!! A lovely stay and a fantastic week, we even managed to dodge the showers!!!

Short on space!

Good spot to watch the world go by. Easy for basic food shopping. Sleeps comfortably two in double bed and perhaps child in the other single room. Second bed not comfortable for an adult. Upstairs very narrow -passing space to access toilet and separate shower was difficult so a large person would struggle. The description said small yard and line - actually was a three foot square space for external meter cupboard - not a space to sit out! No freezer compartment in larder fridge.

Ideal For Couples

Brackley Cottage is an ideal stay for couples. The location is wonderful ,with views from lounge and main bedroom . There is no parking at the cottage but paid parking is available nearby. Perhaps the lounge room furniture could be upgraded to something more comfortable and sometimes the illegal parking outside the cottage was a bit annoying however we did enjoy our stay and presentation and cleanliness in the cottage was faultless.

Brackley Cottage, St Mawes, Cornwall

Lovely little cottage, great views and we were fortunate with the weather so we could soak up the wonderful ambience of St Mawes in glorious sunshine. The actual cottage was quite small, this is ok if there are two of you or if you have two young children ( we are the latter). It was clean and comfortable. Parking is a bit of nightmare as there isn't any off-street parking. I would recommend this place because of it's quaintness and location.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Brackley Cottage. St Mawes benefits from a wonderful large car park only two minutes walk from the cottage. A weekly ticket costs just £25 (2013 prices). You can pull up outside the cottage to load and unload.
