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 Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.

Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.

Summer at Petroc

We loved that this was a detached property. It was well equipped and clean. The bedrooms were of a good, equal size with lovely views. The balcony off the master bedroom has gorgeous sea views. Alas there was construction work on the property directly outside and we felt unable to use it to its full potential. That aside, a great location and would stay there again.

Home from Home

This was our first visit to Petroc but we've stayed in St Mawes a few times. This cottage is wonderful. It has everything you could wish for; views, peace, space and is superbly equipped right down to the Nespresso coffee pod machine. We loved our stay here. Its a very short, but steep walk to the sea front and has a balcony to admire the sea views with a sundowner in hand! It is furnished beautifully. The owners have great taste! I couldn't recommend this cottage enough or Cornwall Cottages superb service. I dare say it will become a very popular choice!

We had a truly wonderful few days at Petroc, aided by some magnificent Easter weather. Please pass on our thanks to the owners, who have created a fabulous, tasteful, welcoming house/home. We loved everything about it, it is the perfect place for a family to get away and enjoy Cornwall.

Week break in St Mawes

Last minute booking, which was hassle free. Well presented spacious house, very comfortable, and well equipped. Bonus having a car parking space at the rear, but it is very tight, so more suited to a smaller car. Appreciated the welcome gifts. House was a stones throw from the quay, but be prepared for steep steps. St Mawes was a lovely location, pretty, and friendly people. Would very much recommend a visit. In all, loved our stay, and would return. Very enjoyable week.

Family stay at Petroc

The cottage was absolutely gorgeous, in a fantastic spot & a beautiful view from the balcony. Perfect for our holiday requirements. My family & I have booked with Cornwall Cottages before without any issues. This time there was an issue with the security deposit (despite being told it would not be taken from my account, my statement showed a withdrawal) sadly the young (?) operative I spoke with seemed unable to grasp this & was short to the point of rudeness. Otherwise I have always found them to be most polite, knowledgeable & courteous.

From the Owner:
The security deposit is clearly explained as pre-authorisation only and the funds are held against the card, not debited. Funds need to be available at the time for us to do this. The pre-authorisation requirement is clearly explained to the guest during the booking process and a reminder emailed a week before arrival. Unfortunately in this case, the guest really did not understand the process, although it was explained on many occasions.

Family holiday St Mawes

Booked very last minute, staff made it simple to book and very knowledgeable of local area. House was beautiful, had everything we could possibly need. Parking space although very tight was a perfect. Very clean and modern, but welcoming. The welcome wine and biscuits was a nice touch. Linen good quality, nice to have extra throws if needed in the evening. Perfect location slightly away from small town centre but close enough to walk. Lots of steps or a steepish hill to get back up from the harbour to the house. We had a quest with mobility issues and managed just went slowly. Could do with some coasters on the bedside tables, for tea in the morning. Bedroom balcony just lovely, lots of mornings having breakfast with the whole family outside. Definitely will visit again.

Truly wonderful week

We had a truly wonderful week staying in St Mawes at Petroc. The property has been recently furnished and the owners have made a beautiful job of it. We wanted for nothing. It was such a great size for our family of 5 and the beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept in. We will definitely return.

From the Owner:
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Petroc, and thank-you for your kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you back another time.
