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.

Back in St Mawes

A last minute booking to visit Cornwall . I have stayed in the area before so know St Mawes very well. The flat was very well equipped and as we only had a short stay we did not use the kitchen which was very nice. Shower and bedrooms were lovely and view across harbour great. Only one thing to improve Little Egret would be to improve the hot water flow in the kitchen to speed washing up, but this is not a big issue and would not stop us from staying again. Due to its position other visitors should be aware of a little noise from the Rising Sun and bar adjacent to the car park later in the evening . This was not a problem for us. Having a car park space was really useful. So overall its a YES for a secret hideaway in a place that's has hardly changed in 50 years !

Perfect weekend break

Spur of the moment decision for weekend away. Picked Little Egret and was great decision. Perfect location in centre of village, parking space a short walk away. Terrific view out of window. The flat was toasty warm, lovely modern kitchen and bathroom, former having all the equipment you would need should you feel like cooking. Co-op about 2 mins walk for provisions. 2 pubs , one opposite and one a short walk for good beer and bar meals. Large living room with dining table. We had lovely time, lots of walks, ferry to Falmouth(using discount vouchers which came with the booking) and sun night cinema in St Mawes hotel. Just the 3of us in private 25 seater cinema with free popcorn- great fun. Would thoroughly recommended Little Egret and great value for money. Would love to return again

Very comfortable stay in a lovely location.

Very comfortable, ideal location with a sea view. Although there was only two of us, this Apartment was spacious enough for 4 persons. You have your own parking space in the car park at the back of the premises. Little Egret is right in the village of St. Mawes and only a few steps away from Pubs, cafA(C) / tea room, restaurants and shops. You are also able to catch the St Mawes to Falmouth Ferry in the harbour which is only a few metres up the road. Just leave your car in the car park, catch the Ferry and have a great day in Falmouth. We only had a few days here, but will certainly return to have a few days more.

The weather may be changeable but Little Egret is consistently good

As forecast, showery weather was always in the offing. This failed to impact an enjoyable stay, with Little Egret an assured safe haven. We rambled around Penzance and then Mousehole, in pouring rain an atmospheric experience. An evening meal at the Kings Head at Tregony, lunch at The Nare and a cream tea at the Rose in Vale at Mithian provided some of the highlights. There again, strolling across beautiful beaches takes some beating.

Little Egret Apartment, St. Mawes

Little Egret was such a lovely first-floor apartment - cosy, comfortable, with the most amazing view across the bay. Friendly pubs, restaurants and coffee shops abound, and nearby is a newly-refurbished supermarket, and butchers and bakers with fresh local produce. The regular passenger ferry will take you across the bay to Falmouth, and a ten-minute walk will take you to the castle, built by Henry VIII and the sub-tropical gardens of Lamorrans.

An excellent holiday apartment.

We found Little Egret clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It is in an ideal location for visiting St Mawes, with easy access to the ferries and to various coastal walks or, if it rains, it is very pleasant just to sit on the sofa and watch the boats and the sea.

We had a great week and loved the view from the flat and roof terrace. The kitchen was very well equipped. The only minor problem was the hot tap in the kitchen only produced a trickle. The EU fi was good and the information on the local area was very useful.

Let down & disappointed

No one to contact on weekends. We had power cut, no torch to be found, not knowing property had to hunt for candles and matches. TV stopped working no one got back to me. Caretaker very rude could have informed me as she knew it was a holiday let apartment! No oven gloves so how do you get hot food out of oven! Did not supply washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets. I have stayed at several rental properties before and have been expected to provide these items myself. When complaining told there is a co op round the corner! A bit of s cop out! The company providing the rental etc should make sure it is equipped properly. Also the fact no one is in the office on a Saturday morning when most people leave/arrive!

From the Owner:
Let down and disappointed because the TV stopped working because of a completely unforeseen 2 hour power cut in St Mawes? I would kindly refer guests to the great reviews of this lovely apartment by others who have stayed. Cornwalls Cottages man a 24 hour emergency phone and the caretaker and Owner's phones are both provided to guests. Mrs Ramsden failed to contact any of these during her stay and left early because the TV was not working, missing a quite stunning spring weekend in St Mawes when the sun shone, the water glistened and many, many people enjoyed strolling around the harbour or relaxing on the terraces of the local hostelries. St Mawes and Little Egret have so much to offer the visitor, it is such as shame Mrs Ramsden had to leave early.

Highly reccomended

We chose Little Egret because of its location and the photo on the website of the cosy looking sittingroom and were not dissapointed! Comfortable, clean appartment with everything needed to enjoy a stay. A 2 minute walk to the ferry for Falmouth and a 10 minute meander up the road to view the Castle. Fortunately for us the weather was warm ( 20 celcius) over the weekend we stayed and that was a bonus but l imagine Little Egret is a great place to stay anytime of year. Would definitely return.

Lovely spacious apartment next to village square and just across the road from the seafront. We travel to St. Mawes at least once per year & Little Egret was a great find which I booked ay the last minute after seeing it on Facebook, we will certainly be back. The free reserved parking space is an added bonus due to there being little or no parking except in the village car park which is really busy.
