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 comfortable family home for the week

The location is wonderful. The view across the Percuil estuary is stunning and very animated with boats sailing back and forth. It is hard to imagine how you could be closer to the water without getting your feet wet! Yes, the standard of fittings may not be 'wow', but is is clean, comfortable and more than adequate for a large family group. In fact the homely decor meant it was much more relaxing to stay with young grandchildren and a labrador! The kitchen had everything we needed (we ate in for almost every meal). The second fridge-freezer in the utility room was only used for wine, as there was plenty of room in the main fridge-freezer for us.

Perfect location - good value for money for small group out of season

Enjoyed our stay at Seagulls very much. We were a party of 4 with two dogs and the property had everything we required for a comfortable weeks stay. As we did not use the whole property (the 3 bed annexe was not required therefore out of bounds) the price was discounted accordingly and it represented very good value for money for an out of season break. The property decor is as previously stated a little tired but it did not bother us in the slightest - the position and convenience of the property in relation to the main part of St Mawes and view from the living room, master bedroom and patio/ garden far exceeded our expectations. We would happily stay in Seagulls again.

Stunning location

A fantastic long weekend for 3 families and a dog,staying at Seagulls. Plenty of parking in a quiet position at the end of a small lane. Large rooms decorated and furnished in a comfortable, homely way. View from the lounge was stunning, overlooking the river with plenty of boats and birds to watch! A large tiered garden with lawn at the bottom large enough for family games. Gate leading out onto the path which followed the river. About 15 minute stroll in to St Mawes. Well equipped kitchen and dining room with table big enough to seat everyone. 2 bathrooms ( 1 with walking shower) and extra separate toilet was ideal for a large party. Beds were comfy with a double room, 2 twins a triple and a bunk room.( The bunk beds are really only suitable for children or small adults.) Plenty of outside seating and a built in bbq which we made use of as the weather was gorgeous! Only criticism was not the fault of the house but other visitors! ItA?s the responsibility of guests to put bins out at the end of the drive. As there were 5 bins full when we arrived this obviously hadnA?t been done for a while! A note on the gate does tell you this but maybe needs to be clearer! Also we luckily put them out on the Sunday evening of a bank holiday as they were collected early on the Monday. ( unusual to have bank holiday collections). I would highly recommend staying at Seagulls. You really wonA?t want to leave.

Seagulls - beautiful location, good for a large family group, in need of some sprucing up

Seagulls is a beautifully positioned house overlooking the Percueil River out the back of St Mawes, but still walkable back into the village via a handy footpath shortcut or along the main road above Summers Beach. The views from all of the rooms are lovely and watching the changing light and tide on the river is one of the pleasures of staying there. Seagulls is a very suitable house for a large family group and we really appreciated all being able to be together. There is ample accommodation for 11 people and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking and serving for large numbers. The decor does feel outdated and could do with some sprucing up - but that is a minor concern when staying in such a beautiful location when there is so much walking and exploring to be done outside of the house. With 5 bedrooms, there is not one bath or shower room per bedroom (1 shower room, 1 bathroom and 1 separate shower and 2 separate toilets), so we did experience some queuing in the mornings. Wifi service was good and we had no issues with 4 children all being on their devices at once (not to mention the adults too!). Overall it is a spacious family home suitable for accommodating large family groups. We had a lovely stay there, on what was probably our 60th annual family visit to St Mawes at Easter!

Relaxing time

I thoroughly enjoy staying at Seagulls and will visit again. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Whilst not overly modernised and made over like so many properties in St Mawes that is a big part of Seagulls appeal. We love it!

Pleasant stay

Excellent location. Very peaceful cottage which was as expected. Whilst we expected the garden to be stepped with a path, you will need to be careful in the wet as the paving is incredible slippy. The decor was fine and the condition of furniture was better than previous reviews commented. Main bathroom was in excellent condition and shower was a delight. Comfort we have rated as good, plenty of space, lounge was large and comfortable and was not cramped at all. Only issue on comfort was the beds were not to our taste in terms of hardness. Even if you take your own comfort deckchairs the patio is not flat to be warned however very delightful to sit reading or looking at the water. The dogs loved the garden and kept them very fit - playing hide and seek with balls. We did not use much of the house or utility so cannot comment on those facilities.

Great location

Absolutely wonderful location and stunning views. We were able to get a mooring very easily as the boatyard 2 minutes away. The house itself is a no frills family holiday house but more than adequate for our two families. The kitchen was well equipped and had most things that we needed. Bathrooms seem to have all been updated fairly recently and hot water is available at all times. One thing to note is that although it's usually standard to provide bathroom towels they are not provided here ..it does note that in the info from the letting agents but I failed to see that and only took beach towels

Family Holiday

This was a great house with plenty of space, perfect for our extended family boating holiday. Waking up to views across the Percuil estuary every morning we enjoyed the peace of the out of town location but with easy access to the facilities of St Mawes. The downstairs utility was really useful for storing boat clobber and dealing with the catch of the day! A brilliant family holiday house.

Value for money

We enjoyed a week at Seagulls in August. We were a party of six adults and three children, so the accommodation suited our requirements perfectly. There was plenty of space for us all to spread out without feeling like we were living on top of each other. The furniture and decor was a little tired but it was certainly comfortable. The best part had to be the view over the Percuil from the terrace and we enjoyed many a tranquil evening (and the odd early morning) watching the boats come and go. We enjoyed a BBQ on the terrace and there was ample seating for eating with the whole family outside. My only negative point on that front was there were no comfy outdoor chairs to relax in or a sunshade. The location's a little far from the harbour front but a short cut makes it relatively quick to reach the main centre of St Mawes (although a bit of a hike back as it is largely uphill). The quibbles are very minor, though, and we thought Seagulls very good value for money. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would certainly consider returning next year!

Wonderful location but property very tired and in need of refurbishment.

Wonderful location but property in need of a new kitchen, carpets and curtains and a lick of paint inside and out Much of the furniture although comfortable was well past its sellby date

From the Owner:
I feel that this review is very unfair especially in respect of the comments regarding the kitchen, carpets and furniture. There is nothing wrong with the kitchen which is equipped with all modern appliances, the furniture, though not all brand new is, as they say, still comfortable and the carpets were renewed throughout the house in the autumn together with much of the interior decor including the two new bathrooms!

Lovely, but tired.

The house is in a lovely position, overlooking the river. With a public footpath accessible from the back garden, we were able to leave the car behind and explore the local area on foot and by ferry. We found the house warm and comfortable, if a little tired. The dA(C)cor could do with a makeover, but you don't go on holiday to admire the curtains. We would certainly stay again.

Cottage with spectacular view

We were a group of 10 adults and we stayed over the Easter bank holiday weekend. Its a wonderful place to stay if you are planing to visit Cornwall. Large private garden with the sea & valley views is amazing. The interior is a bit old fashioned but is comfortable and there is nothing to complain about it. There are a lot of games to keep the kids busy. Definitely going to stay again if visiting the area and would recommend to friends.

Lots of games and books and a sweet childrens' bunk room with toys. Highly recommended for families.

October Break

We have just returned from a week at Seagulls. There were 6 adults, 3 children and 1 dog (Pointer) in our party. The house is beautifully situated in a quiet lane and its ample grounds run down to the creekside with access to a footpath. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The views across the creek are lovely and despite some foggy weather we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace some mornings. A problem with the shower was resolved efficiently. A lovely property which we would not hesitate to return to.
