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.

Lovely cottage and perfect location. The cleanliness could have been better particularly downstairs in bedrooms and bathrooms. Is also a bit cluttered.

Relax at The Workshop

We had an excellent week in St Mawes helped in no small way by the fact we stayed at The Workshop. The property is ideally situated just one row back from the sea wall which means there are no challenging climbs back to base. The property is very well equipped and very comfortable and I would not hesitate in recommending it.

Great place to stay

Have been going to St Mawes for over 50 years and the Workshop is definitely one of the best properties we have rented. So good that they allow dogs. We really enjoyed staying there and would certainly book to stay there again. Thank you to the owners for letting us use their lovely home. Jane

The perfect week

We were lucky to have wonderful weather but the high point of our stay was the fabulous accommodation. We all loved The Workshop with its unrivalled central location and gorgeous view from the mezzanine, and the property was the best equipped we've ever stayed in. Thank you for this discovery - we fully intend to come back.

We really loved the location and style of the accomodation - very happy

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Workshop - and were incredibly grateful that this could be found at such short notice, having had our previously booked accommodation cancelled three days before our trip. The location is excellent, and we loved the new dormer with views across the harbour, which we enjoyed every morning and evening. The apartment is incredibly well stocked, and we had everything we could need for a relaxing trip to the beautiful Cornish coast.

October half-term 2017

Our family loved being at The Workshop - convenient for the pub, bakery, shops and wonderful walks around the Roseland peninsula. Disappointed that the kayak man had closed for the winter even though the weather was mild and dry and still only half-term school holidays?! (But that's not Cornwall Cottages or The Workshop's fault!) Many thanks, we'll be back soon!

Great place

Situated right in the heart of St Mawes this is a lovely property. The upside down configuration works really well with sea views from some upstairs windows, and the living space is bright, spacious and inviting. An attic 'snug' is great for kids although it looks like the owners are planning to turn it into dormer room. Beds were comfy and the whole place is equipped like a home, not a holiday rental. Minor quibbles - the washing machine was broken during our stay (awaiting parts) and we couldn't stop the en suite shower dripping which meant I needed a wee about 15 times a night, but we loved the place and would go back in a heartbeat.

A lovely house, very well equiped and close to shops and car park.

We found the house very easy to live in and the position good with a view to the harbour. We would definitely come again. The only problem was the lock to the Bathroom which needs the screw tightening, my daughter got locked in.

Wonderful festive stay in St Mawes

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Workshop in St Mawes where we enjoyed two weeks of movie watching, dog walking and pub hopping! The Workshop is a lovely cottage that offered all that we'd hoped for; in fact we both commented that it is better than we'd expected. That said, a little nod to Christmas would have been appreciated; the odd bauble or string of fairy lights.... ;) We took our two english pointers and the cottage was perfect for them too; plenty of room and access to the garden. We would happily return to stay again!

Seaside fun in St Mawes

With its pretty cottage style furnishings, just five minutes from the harbour side, the Workshop made a great base for our stay on the Roseland. The open plan living room /kitchen is well equipped and a comfortable size. The bedrooms are downstairs, and though compact, are also comfortable and beautifully decorated. We loved being close to St Mawes' pubs and restaurants, and had some great trips, especially on the Place Ferry to walk along the coast to the lighthouse at St Anthony's Head. The tour of St Mawes castle is also well worth doing, using the audio guides - a bit like a Horrible History read aloud! Public transport is limited, so you need a car to enjoy this beautiful coastline. Thoroughly recommended.

A week in St Mawes

We have stayed in St Mawes on several occasions but not previously at The Workshop. Lovely property, fully equipped with everything you need, comfortable, spacious and light, bright and airy. Good location a short walk from pubs, shops and the beach. Ideal base for exploring the Roseland Peninsula and going to Falmouth via the ferry. We all enjoyed a fabulous half term break, thank you.
