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.

An enjoyable holiday

Our large extended family (aged 3-60+) had a lovely fortnight's holiday at High Meadows. The accommodation was excellent, very comfortable beds and really good showers (the wet room was very welcome after a day at the beach). There was also plenty of seating for the whole family and a very well-equipped kitchen. The 2 lounges with sky TV in both also kept the children well-entertained. The beach and town of St Mawes are only a 10 minute walk from the house. Our only criticism is that when we arrived there was dog hair all over the floors, what we assumed was dog slobber on the windows and more worryingly quite a lot of dog mess on the grass in the garden. With very young children this was unacceptable; obviously it is a pet-friendly house but we would hope not to see evidence of previous occupants' dogs when we arrived! But other than this we couldn't fault the house or its location.

Reply from Sally Prince

Thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. I am so sorry about the dog hairs and marks on the windows. I have raised this with our cleaners and they will double check in future. We are a dog friendly house as we know how much dogs are part of the family and enjoy coming on holiday too. But we do ask dog owners to keep their dogs in the large utility area and not to allow them in bedrooms for exactly this reason. Our cleaners are only responsible for cleaning the house and not the garden. We also ask dog owners not to allow their pets to make a mess in the garden and if they do, they should of course clean up afterwards. We will adjust our notes to dog owners to reflect your feedback and re-emphasise "house rules" for pets. Otherwise, we are glad you had a good holiday and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

A real home away from home

If you are looking for somewhere to take a large family on holiday then this is the house for you. Comfortable, very well designed, enough space indoors and out that everyone has their own space and no one is underfoot. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was a joy to cook in. The house is a short walk to the centre from where you can get a ferry to Falmouth, it is also ideally placed for many walks, including the SW Coastal path.

Short Easter family break.

An excellent house / location for our extended family stay ( children, young and older adults). Facilities good, views and garden very pleasant. Location provided great access to fine walks and secluded beaches etc. Some maintenance issues which need dealing with, these have been referred to the booking agent separately.

Reply from Sally Prince

We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and thank you for bringing our attention to some small things that you could not get working. Some guests switch the bathroom extractors off at the mains so they won't come on automatically and likewise the cooker extractor/light. We will add some further instructions for future guests. The broken pull cord in one bathroom will also be repaired. We really appreciate your feedback and hope we can welcome you back to High Meadows soon.

Everything we could need!

We had a lovely family holiday at High Meadows with 3 generations of our family. The house was in a fantastic position for the beach and water and only a short stroll to the shops. The kitchen was very well stocked with every utensil we needed. We even managed a big family Easter roast dinner for 12!! The beds were very comfy and the layout suited our family with the bedrooms slightly separated. The shower room and the utility area were a fantastic bonus, wetsuits, sandy bodies and dogs all washed off without entering the house!! We would definitely recommend High Meadows to anyone wanting a large family home for a relaxing holiday.

Great for large family get together

Well equipped house. Lovely views. We stayed in chilly March but had the weather been warmer would have enjoyed being out in the lovely garden , looked as though all equipment was available for outdoor eating and relaxing. Lovely area and handy for St Mawes centre and ferry.

St Mawes - lovely, large detached property.

High Meadows was just perfect for all the eleven adults in our party. All the rooms were good size with generous bathrooms. Bedlinen was top-notch.The garden was the best feature. It was secure, safe, secluded and very pretty. The outside seating/decking was in the perfect location - sun all day long. It took a bit of getting used to the up-side down configuration within the house but the views from the kitchen made up for it. Kitchen cooking utensils, plates, outside crockery, cutlery etc were more than adequate. I can't think of anything that was amiss.....

Guest from Wimborne stayed for 7 nights.

Another great week at High Meadows.

A party of eight of us had another excellent week in High Meadows. The lay out is very workable for different couples/singles & the town centre is less than ten minutes away. We would recommend having the Chef on Roseland to cook a meal for you - he did this for us & produced a gourmet dinner cheaper than most restaurants could. Our only criticism would be that we would have liked a set of glass wine glasses to drink out - most of them were plastic & only suitable for BBQs. We also felt that the cutlery was an odd mixture of designs & sizes - making it difficult to have uniform place settings.

Reply from Sally

Thank you for your helpful review and recommendations. I have not tried the Chef on Roseland yet and will certainly do so. Your comments on glasses and cutlery are fully noted. New wine glasses have been put in the cupboards. We always like to have plenty of knives and forks but there are two different sets so next time I am in the house, I will go through the cutlery drawers and sort everything out. So glad you enjoyed your holiday - hope you will visit us again.
