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 well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.

Review as requested

The house was a little tried. Problems with electric resulted in many blown light bulbs. Coffee machine not workings on arrival and took until Monday to get replacement and only after a prompt.kitchen cupboards a total mess and needs good clear out and some sort of logic made of the many plates etc! Living room settees were very uncomfortable very lumpy.

From the Owner:
I felt rather sad to read this very negative review. I bought a set of 8 matching plates, side plates and bowls this year. I know the previous guest broke 2 or 3 of these, and I will replace these as soon as I can. These plates are all housed on two shelves in an eye level easy access cupboard. There are several further smaller/ larger plates as very often more plates are required. I cannot at present comment on the electricity problem, but obviously this is not normal and I can only suggest that this guest was most unfortunate. I have never had an issue with the Magimix coffee machine. However, to get a replacement on Monday when St Mawes does not have a plethora of supermarkets, I feel deserves some positive comment. I am really disappointed that this guest did not enjoy their stay at Trevennen Rock in beautiful St Mawes, and that they encountered so many unforeseeable problems that spoilt their holiday. . I will address their comments when at the house this weekend.

Great house and location!

Lovely property, clean with great facilities and a well equipped kitchen. The 1:3 hill back up from St Mawes harbour was a daily challenge! Good off street parking for 3 or 4 cars. The only things to bear in mind are the lack of an upstairs bathroom although this was not an issue for us and the outside wooden furniture in the nice secluded courtyard is starting to show its age. Overall a lovely place which I would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.

Well located property close to harbour. No details on waste collection and bins already full when arrived so by the end of the week lots of household waste bags and bottles left. Very steep hill to harbour which was ok for us but others could struggle. No alternative bedding so duvets were inappropriate in the hot weather. Bedding was duck down and rugs were animal skin so with asthmatic daughter we had to buy new bedding for her and she had to sleep away from the rugs. 2 bedrooms upstairs without bathroom or toilets which is not ideal. Good facilities overall in the property. A bbq would be a useful addition.

A wonderful last minute find

I booked this cottage 3 days before the start of my holiday and the booking service was excellent. We were looking for someone to spend some time together as a family after a busy year and this was perfect. The cottage was lovely and welcoming with fresh flowers and beds made up for us. There was plenty of space and we had everything we needed. The living room was on the first floor with lovely views out to sea and it was a wonderful space to relax. The cottage is a few minute outside the harbor but be warned, it is a very steep walk back to the cottage and not suitable for anyone with limited mobility.St Mawes is lovely and we really did have a fabulous time here. The house is great for family holidays with older children and groups of friends but probably not for very young children (0-5 yrs). This is one place I will return to - a real home from home.

One week stay at Trevvenon Rock in August 2016

A lovely location in a picturesque harbour unfortunately the steep climb from the village/harbour to the property was not mentioned sufficiently in the description, my father is Seventy Eight and although managed the 17% gradient climb a few times, it will be the one memory he will always remember! Garden area is tiny, more of a dining patio area with no garden, swinging hammock was a nice touch at the front of the property. Dining out in St Mawes is limited to the very nice Rising Sun pub, every other restaurant or pub needed at least 24 hours booking!! A nice clean property with good facilities and all beds were comfy. Sea view is a squinted glimpse. Would I book again? Probably not

Trevennen Rock - St Mawes

Trevennen Rock is a beautiful house in a fantastic location but is let down by the fact that it is looking very tired and shabby in places; lots of scuff marks on the doors and skirting boards for example. When we arrived the house wasn't clean - the ensuite bathroom had hairs in the bath and the sink and just take a look in the wardrobe - full of dust and I mean full of dust!! the instructions in the property said that on the last day - "please leave the house as you would like to find it" This is confusing - are we - the guests doing the job of a cleaner to save the company and the owners money, or does a cleaner come in after we have left? If we had left the house as we would have liked to have found it - then I would have been cleaning all day and this isn't acceptable to me when I am on holiday. We cleaned the ensuite bathroom and the kitchen and lounge area with the limited cleaning products provided ( no toilet cleaner or bleach?) We have at least two holidays in the UK each year and invariably we book one of these in Cornwall, and have tended to book with Blue Chip Holidays and Owners Direct and the quality and cleanliness of their properties is exceptional. All in all, a lovely house but disappointing based on the money paid, we won't be booking another Cornwalls cottage holiday if this is the standard of cleanliness provided in your properties.

From the Owner:
We categorically refute the claims of this review. Trevennen Rock is cleaned by one of the most professional cleaning companies that operate on the Roseland. The cleaner and the Owner have investigated the claims of this review and found most of the claims completely untrue. We would refer the reader to previous reviews which have not mentioned any of the cleaning issues raised in this review. The claim that other holiday companies have cleaner properties is also difficult to justify as most Owners employ their own cleaners that are not part of those companies mentioned. You are not going to encounter any different scenarios simply by changing company.

A lovely property and ideal location for a long weekend.

Trevennan Rock is a great property in great condition, in a great location. Facilities are great although for some reason there was only one small cooking pan in the kitchen which meant that we were rather limited to certain cooking options. This would have not been a problem if we were advised to bring some with us beforehand. Otherwise a great property and location for a short stay.

Great location!

Trevennen Rock is in a perfect location for walking down the hill into St Mawes - close enough to walk to the harbour, shops and beaches. Great to have parking spaces. Beautiful large lounge area with great views.

Heavenly Holiday

Just what we needed - a beautiful house in an idyllic setting ! Plenty of room for seven people . Only fault we found was that the food cupboard in the kitchen was full with someone else's food etc and we had to put our things on top of hob which looked untidy but it certainly didn't spoil a fantastic holiday. It would be good not to have to take our own towels but again it wouldn't stop us from visiting again. Don't think it's a suitable house for children because of the amount of ornaments everywhere.

Almost great!

The house is in a great position and is very comfortable and clean but there are a few areas that let it down. The crockery was from about 20 different sets and each piece was chipped. The glasses were stained from the dishwasher and so didn't look great. There were only two pans and we were there for Christmas so this was never going to be enough! The utensils were all mixed up and didn't look particularly clean. The final issue was the pillows to the beds. They all smelt as if they had never been cleaned and so we had to cover them in towels. You are asked to strip the beds at the end of your stay which is fair enough, but when we did, all we saw was heavily stained duvets and mattresses. This was not what I wanted to see or paid for. All that said, it is a nice house in a great location and we had a fantastic Christmas and Nee Year but if the above points were addressed, it would be a fantastic house.

From the Owner:
Thank you for pointing out to me the disappointing state of pillows and duvets. These have been replaced and I apologise for an unpleasant experience.

Fantastic house and so very near to the harbour at St mawes.The house was extremely comfortable and with in easy reach of the harbour and shops and pubs. The Rising Sun pub was particularly good for food and we wish we could have stayed another week.
