Polmaro is a modern self contained apartment located overlooking the Percuil River at Freshwater Boatyard in St Mawes. There is a small balcony where you can sit out and enjoy the views over the river or watch the boats coming & going at the boatyard quay.

Polmaro is perfect for a couple seeking a great value base in St Mawes with river views.

Polmaro can also used in conjunction with Pelyn, our other property at this location, to provide great value accommodation for up to 4 people wanting to stay in St Mawes.

There are lovely walks along the Percuil River and it is about a 10 minute walk along the river to St Mawes Harbour with all its pubs & restaurants. It is a fantastic base for exploring the area particularly for walkers as the ferries in St Mawes will take you to either Falmouth or across the river to Place Manor. If you have your own boat, moorings are available for hire from the boatyard. Small motor boats and a sailing boat can be hired from St Mawes Boat Hire on St Mawes Quay in the village itself.

First Floor Only: There is an external staircase that leads to the front door. The double bedroom has views over the Percuil River (although please note from October to May this view may be obscured by boats being stored on the quay). The WC & Shower room is to one side of the hallway. The main kitchen/lounge area is spacious for a one bedroom property with breakfast table, electric hob & cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and a washer dryer machine. There are two sofas in the lounge area. The views across the river are superb with a fully glazed door onto the small balcony.

Other pubs are available in Portscatho (about 10 mins drive), Philleigh (about 10 mins), Ruan Lanihorne (20 mins) or Veryan (15 mins) It is important to note that the property is located on a working boatyard and there might be the odd bit of noise from work being undertaken on boats. There is a reasonable amount of activity in front of the property. From October to May, boats are stored on the hardstanding and right in front of the property which may affect both the light and the views across the river. Polmaro will welcome babes in arms only - please bring your own travel cot. Regrettably no toddlers due to location.

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.

A great place to stay with walks from the door step.

Polmaro was a comfortable well equipped apartment situated in a quiet location. However it was in walking distance of all the amenities that St Mawes had to offer. The views from the apartment were lovely and the boatyard that we overlooked by no means spoilt it but provided a lot of interest watching the comings and goings of the various boats.The Roseland Peninsula is a lovely area and this was a great base to explore it.

3rd stay at Polmaro

This was our 3rd stay in Polmaro although weA?ve stayed many times on The Roseland Peninsula and each time we visit we love it even more. It is such a quiet, scenic spot yet within a 10 minute walk into St. Mawes, partly walking along the riverbank. The sitting room and bedroom with their views over the small ,quiet boatyard to the Percueil river are lovely and the apartment is well equipped. However, we do think that at least 1 tea towel should be provided. We bring our own now after having to buy one the first time. Secondly, we were not impressed by having to take black bin liners of rubbish up a hill to leave in a metal trailer where overnight the foxes had a feast. We understand that Cornwall Council do not recycle in that area but surely it would be better to have a large wheely bin in the boatyard for someone to take it up the lane on the collection day.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. All feedback is much appreciated and we will take on board your comment regarding supplying more tea towels. I am sorry you were not impressed regarding taking the rubbish to the top of the lane and deposited into the trailer. I will certainly take this matter on board and look into remedying this.

An excellent holiday on the Roseland Peninsula with so many interesting aspects.

The property was very comfortable, well equipped and in an interesting location. The walks along the coastal path and inland were amazing with fantastic scenery, sightings of kestrels, buntings, whimbrels, oyster catchers and seals. The historical sites such as the castles at St. Mawes and Pendennis, plus the churches were fascinating plus the more recent sites connected with WWII.. If in need of retail therapy Truro was worth a visit with more historical places to visit. An area of Cornwall which is well worth a visit which suits a variety of interests.

Late September get away.

Great accommodation, just right for 2 people. View is brilliant, even the activity in the boat yard is interesting. St Mawes is very nice, we di have beautiful weather which helps. Care needs to be taken with the cooker because it has lost nearly all its markings for the control knobs. We were told they were getting it fixed. A very nice stay in beautiful part of Cornwall

From the Owner:
Thank you so much for such a positive review. It was a pleasure meeting you and hope that you will visit again. I can confirm we have remedied the problem with the cooker control knobs and appreciate you bringing it to our attention. We appreciate negative and positive reviews as this helps us to take steps where necessary.

Seven Days at Polmaro

Seeking a week's peace and quiet and a top up of good, sea air ahead of the winter these 2 properties, at the Fairwater Boatyard, tick all the boxes. This was a return visit to this location, for my wife and I and, weather apart (over which you have no control!) it did no disappoint. The ever changing conditions around the Percuil River continue to fascinate. Comments in the Visitors Book all strike a similar note.

We have stayed at Freshwater Boatyard three times this year and have enjoyed each stay. The flats are comfortable and as we have a boat moored in view of the windows they are ideally situated for us. We would stay again.

Hidden gem

The flat was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Also, nice and bright due to many windows. Although tucked away round the bay from St. Mawes harbour it was only 15mins walk from restaurants and public houses/hotels. The view from Polmaro on the first floor was amazing, especially at sunset and sunrise. Overlooking the small boatyard was a bonus for my partner who loves boats, especially the wooden ones which had been hand built by a chap on site years ago. We would recommend Polmaro to anyone who likes to have a bit of peace and quiet but in a short walk joins the hub of the village.

This property and location combine to meet our requirements.

Our second visit -lower flT last time.Worth the extra cost to be above the parked boats, though they add to the interest.View is wonderful and while it is a working yard,the location really is peaceful,relaxing and comfortable. We wanted a restful time with plenty of walking opportunities,easy access to St Mawes sea front and local shops for essentials. The property was very good in all aspects as we expected having used the company previously. Polmara will stay on our list for future holidays.

Holiday on The Roseland

This was our second stay in Polmaro,St Mawes and we loved it even more. We never tire of exploring the Roseland area and Polmaro is excellently situated for local walks or trips by ferry to Falmouth and Truro so it is very relaxing and a treat to leave the car behind! The beaches (there are many nearby) are sandy and beautifully clean .There is every thing you need in the apartment and it is a wonderful sight to watch the sun rise and set over the creek in the river.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again in the future.

A great find.

I discovered Polmaro on the internet. I was immediately impressed in our arrival as the view is simply superb. Don't be put off by the fact that it is within a working yard as tgat merely added to the enjoyment if the ever changing view. The accommodation is a very good standard, clean and with just about everything you would expect and the owners have obviously taken care to provide everything you need. There is limited wifi cover although I expect that is mire due to location and certainly it didn't spoil my week ! The owners are available and approachable but not in the slightest bit intrusive. It a reasonably flat 10 min walk into St Mawes and definitely the best way to see this stunning area. It would be quite possible to park the car on arrival and not get back into again until the journey home. Overall a lovely little bolt hole for two. Fantastic. Thanks

Everything we wanted!

We wanted a waterside location with a good view, and a place where we could store and readily launch our kayak. Polmaro fitted the bill superbly. The staff could not have been more helpful. Our only regret was that the lower flat Pelyn which our son and wife had booked was suddenly cancelled but fortunately they managed to book somewhere nearby. Both flats are within a very busy working boatyard with boats being cleaned, sanded, painted, repaired , craned and launched by tractor so it is sometimes quite noisy during the working day - especially perhaps at the beginning of the boating season when we were there. Unlike many boatyards which can be nautical junkyards - which have their charm! - Freshwater Boatyard is wonderfully "shipshape and Bristol fashion" - clean, uncluttered and well organised. We happily envisage returning later this year and certainly next.

From the Owner:
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It certainly is a busy yard throughout the season. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

CHRIS FROM WALES

LOVELY QUIET LOCATION, even in a boatyard !!!! Pillows were extremely hard and difficult to sleep on ,maybe one soft and one hard might be an option. A handle rail in the shower too for us oldies!!!! in case of slipping. But otherwise a good place to stay.the only other point was that there are new settees there covered in fabric , it would be an idea if arm caps were put on them to save them from spillage and throws. on the seating part.

Customer service

Only one bath towel provided although the cleaners left a written message to the owner and I also spoke to him myself. Mark did say he would sort it out but nothing was done about it all week. The grouting in the shower had a lot of mould on it. I sorted that out with some bleach. When I opened the freezer compartment in the fridge it was completely solid with frost and ice. You could not even get a packet of peas in there. After half an hour with my wife's hairdryer I managed to defrost it. There was even an ice tray and a plastic bag of ice cubes hidden in the middle. The outside security light was not working and climbing the metal outside steps in the dark was quite dangerous especially after a rain shower in the dark as they were quite slippery. Apart from these criticisms the property was very good and well appointed.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments Ian. Unfortunately I was on annual leave and am normally the person who deals with any issues regarding the flats and manning the office. Regarding the issues, I am looking into it with housekeeping and can only apologise for the inconvenience it might have caused. I am sure that you will note by the reviews this year, that we take pride in trying to make it home from home but without the pressures. However, I am pleased to let you know that since your stay we have installed a new fridge at the property. All comments are taken seriously and acted upon. We appreciate the feedback. Hope to see you in the future.

A sunny week in Cornwall.

We arrived later than expected( due to traffic hold ups en route) so were pleased to find the key left in the door for us and the apartment and its location excellent. There are plenty of lovely walks and footpaths well signposted and it is just a 10 minute walk into St.Mawes where you can catch the ferry to Falmouth or Truro. The pubs are well worth trying for food and drink. The view from the apartment overlooks the small boatyard and creek and is very picturesque, especially when the sun is rising and setting. Thoroughly recommend.

New Year Visit

This review might sound a little critical but it is made in respect to dozens of previous renting. When we arrived the heating was not on so the place was cold. The owner only lived next door but did not make himself known to us throughout our stay. In the event of bad weather there was little to entertain in the flat games, library etc. However, the flat was warm and comfortable and well located. One other point is that there is no wi-fi or telephone reception this could be a problem if there was an emergency. St Mawes centre is about a half hour walk. St Mawes was fantastic a great landlord at the Victory Inn where we saw in the New Year culminating with a firework display on the Quay. The Cornish people so friendly. A massive selection of good places to eat all sourcing local ingredients. So much to do in the area. We had a great week so temper my minor criticisms. The flat visitor book indicates the nearly everybody, including us, enjoyed their stay and made positive comments.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in St Mawes. Regarding the reception for mobile networks in St Mawes, unfortunately it is very slow throughout St Mawes.

Autumn Break

A lovely weeks stay in a super location. Out of the hustle and bustle of St Mawes but with plenty of enjoyable action going on in the boatyard beneath us. A fair walk to shops and harbour area (20 mins approx stroll). Weather as expected with sunshine and rain - but mild for the time of year. A really lovely apartment, well equipped and spacious with lovely views - needs a more comfortable sofa (apparently on order!) WiFi access would be a bonus.

From the Owner:
We have great pleasure in confirming we have replaced the suite. Hope to see you again in the near future.

polmaro

Our first time at polmaro,great location but cleanliness and condition let it down. The bed settee was broken causing the cushions to slide forward making it awkward to sit comfortably. The other settee was also ready for updating. We did inform the owner about the broken settee, he said he didn't know about it but after reading other reviews we found out it was broken two months before we arrived. The cooker extractor hood didn,t work, and also the dvd player. The place lacked a good clean which was a shame because the location was great, the views over the water are wonderful with the boats and a nice 15mins walk into st mawes.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. We are disposing of the bed settee with a new suite rather than bed settee and will be upgrading/refreshing both flats for the start of the new holiday season. We have taken full note of the problems listed and will be addressing each complaint. Hope to see you again in the future.

Will be looking to book again. It was our 1st visit to St Mawes. Polmero was a very good choice and we will stay there again. The sofas could do with a good clean under the cushions. I went looking for my glass case so would not have looked otherwise. To make it extra comfy the odd blanket and extra cushions would help.

There were not enough black sacks. Ovenproof dishes would be helpful, there were none.. The left hand leg on the sofa bed settee was defective. Nevertheless a very good week and hope to come again.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. We will be replacing the sofa bed with a normal suite for the new season which will definitely add comfort.

Excellent stay at Polmaro

Very pleased with the apartment, especially it's location and amenities. Had a great stay helped by the fcat that the weather was okay for the main part. Only minor point to raise was that it could have done with a few useful items such as broom, dustpan and brush and larger saucepan. However, must stress these are only very minor points and didn't in any way detract from the holiday.

From the Owner:
Thank you, we pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again next season. We are refreshing the flats and will add your suggestions to the list.

Not as Good as it used to be .

This was our third visit to Polmaro and we were disappointed with the standard of cleanliness this time . The floor had clearly not been hovered properly and when we attempted to clean it we found that the Vacuum cleaner was full to the brim . The Sofa bed was broken so badly that you could not sit on it never mind use it as a bed . It is all beginning to look a little tired and in need of a make over which is a shame because the location is brilliant .

From the Owner:
We are sorry your stay was not as good as previously. We can confirm that the flats are being refreshed for the new holiday season and this includes replacing the bed settee with a normal suite for added comfort. Hope to see you in the new season.

Great spot

Lovely views, fabulous quiet location, very much enjoyed watching the low key activities in the boatyard beneath from the balcony and looking out over the boats moored in the estuary.

Our stay at Polmaro

We found it all very nice only down side was the settee that changed into a sofa bed was very uncomfortable to sit on in the evenings, so if the weather was bad you would have to use the kitchen chairs, as older people this not very good.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. We are replacing the bed settee with a normal suite for the new season and refreshing the flats. We hope to see you in the new season.

Polmaro in July

Given our circumstances, the flat was perfectly suited. The location being waterside and with a pontoon it meant we could be picked up by boat without hassle. It also meant that each morning could have been spent on the balcony, breakfasting or lunching in the sun. The flat was also the perfect size as there were just the two of us. It also had parking, which is not often the case in Cornwall and was within striking distance of St Mawes without having to pay St Mawes prices. It's also nice to be a little way from the throng.

New year in Polmaro

1st time in Cornwall & we wanted to tour around. Whilst St Mawes was beautiful, it felt a little isolated for us. Local people were extremely friendly & there Is a selection of nice restaurants close by. Apartment was clean,spacious,warm & well maintained with a good range of kitchenware. Views across the boatyard are beautiful, even with boats moored right outside. Owners are attentive and friendly - residing next door which is reassuring.

Short break in St Mawes

Very enjoyable stay in a small 1 bed first floor flat ideal for two, well fitted and well equipped. Very peaceful location overlooking the estuary. The working boatyard immediately in front of the flats did not cause us any disturbance - it was quite interesting watching men "messing around in boats". Spent our 3 days taking journeys on the various ferries from St Mawes and Falmouth using a pre booked 3 day "Mussel card" which we would thoroughly reccommend.

A reasonably priced apartment in a good and interesting location.

Superb location with good access. Points to note are; The lounge furniture is not very comfortable, especially the seat that converts into a sofa bed. The mattress on the main bed is too thin to be comfortable. A salt and pepper cruet would have been welcome. The shower unit squeals on the ideal temperature setting and the cubicle tiling needs. The bad spell of weather we experienced during our stay probably made the above points more noticeable but we did enjoy staying at Palmaro with the wonderful view over the river and interesting location.

our time at St. Mawes

I liked Polmarro very much but found the duvet far too hot. Could there possibly be a lighter one and maybe a blanket for chillier nights? I would also like to see something supplied to clean bathroom basin. It is a good base for walks and boat rides.

A lovely week in St Mawes

Perfect

Perfect spot for relaxing with wonderful views of the river/estuary and boats bobbing about on the water. The accomodation is well appointed (we cooked twice) and a real home from home. 10 min walk to St Mawes harbour and choice of restaurants, with Victory Pub (good quality pub food) and the Idle Rocks (terrace and views to die for although top end pricing for food). 2nd year for us and we will be back
