A week at Bennerley House
The house has been beautifully renovated and the views are stunning. Our stay was mostly comfortable- there were a few very small practicalities missing (coffee table looks lovely but isnA?t practical, missing bins/ coasters etc.). Our favourite space was the kitchen- diner. ItA?s a brilliant space to eat or drink and watch the world go by. Overall, a really relaxing week away.
From the Owner:
Hello...We're glad you enjoyed being our first guests after renovations! We are staying here this week and have taken care of the small practicalities you mentioned. Thanks for the review!

Weather was not great when we stayed, it rained heavily at times and the property had several damp patches throughout the ground floor. Not what we expected for the price we paid, however it would not stop me booking this property again. The damp patches were not a problem last year when we stayed. It is older property with character in a fantastic location. Only other issue is if you are a light sleeper you will be woken early in the morning by the bakery which is nearby. Overall this a good holiday property with great views, with a lovely small first floor balcony. It is located in a charming Cornish village right on the front overlooking the sea.
From the Owner:
Hello - we are the new owners and, though it seems a bit strange replying to a review from 2015, we thought we'd mention that the house has had a complete renovation in Spring/Summer 2019. Damp course was included of course, along with plastering, painting, carpets, furniture, upstairs room remodelled + The new photo's go up on the week of 26/08/19!

Great house, shame about the noise...
Having visited St Mawes many times staying in hotels, we thought we'd try renting accommodation to make for a more relaxed stay with our 8 month old baby. Firstly, the house is excellent. They have thought of all the things that you need to cater for yourselves, and the furnishings are nice and comfortable, especially the beds. We had a nice time, staring out at the passing scene with the boats and people in a week where the weather wasn't exactly great. Our whole experience though had the shine taken off it on account of being woken every morning between 6am and 6.30am by the bakery up the alley beside the house. Understandably they are up early to get the days stock ready, but there is constant noise from the mixer and then the clatter of trolleys going right past the bedroom windows at the time of day where you'd hope for the most peace. Luckily having the baby we are normally up early anyway, but he was woken by the noise a couple of times which was not good. I appreciate that the bakery is doing it's thing and obviously have the right to make noise or they wouldn't have been granted the licence to operate, but no-where in the write up for the house or in any of the literature received post booking does it mention this. I feel it is a little unfair that this is not mentioned as people should be able to make an informed choice of making a booking. We would definitely have thought twice about booking had we been warned, but perhaps that is the reason there is no mention of the problem anywhere. Overall, the house itself is great, but only if you're an early riser or heavy sleeper!
