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.

Our stay at lovely St Mawes September 2019

I have stayed in St Mawes on many occasions and can happily say that this was by far the best location with the best views to date with its own parking space! Would happily recommend this property as it is also very spacious light and airy.I would be more than happy to return when I can. Thanks also to the nice people at Cornwalls Cottages for their help.

Welcome seaside break

Our second stay at UBH and once again an enjoyable holiday. Comfortable property in a good central location with many amenities close by. Parking facility a big bonus. Good area for walking, and good selection of restaurants and pubs - wonderful lunch at Idle Rocks (just yards away from UBH) and a more casual but also very enjoyable Sunday lunch at St. Mawes Hotel. Boat trip to Trelissick well worth doing. Rosevine Hotel and Hidden Hut a short drive away, as is the Nare Hotel overlooking the lovely Carne Bay. So much to do and see in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

We have been coming to St Mawes for 20 years and it was our second time staying at Upper Bohella house. It is beautifully appointed and we feel very privileged to be able to stay there. The location is perfect as it is in the centre of the village so close to the harbour and local amenities. We hope to return next year!

There were 6 of us sharing Upper Bohella House and we all loved it. Very stylish furnishings and the layout of the house was fabulous. All finished to a very high standard throughout. Bathrooms in particular were very luxurious. A very comfortable house in a great location and with lovely views. I am sure we will be visiting again next year. 10 out of 10 !!!!

A little unwelcoming

We have done a lot of self catering over the years and, of course there are many different ways to convey a welcome. Of course, a welcome basket, though delightful is not expected. However, something should say welcome about the place. Money has been exchanged and this is your home away from home for a short time. When the first thing that catches your eye, is a sign that reads 'please remove your shoes, you tend to get the idea that 'this is my house and don't forget it'. Then, of course there are all the instructions for stripping the beds before leaving. When checking out time is ten, this seems a little unreasonable. Obviously a lot of money has been spent on this venue and it is immaculate but We have spent time in many other houses which were more 'well used' but where we felt more at home.

Great property in all respects, main beds a tad small!

This property is very practical for family use, in a great location. The parking is a real bonus. Only small points which could be improved for a property at this level of accommodation would be; The main beds are small. The lighting system is a tad complex, and foliage was looking lacking in any attention ( dead)

Great stay

Our recent stay at Upper Bohella House in St Mawes was extremely nice. Good central location with lovely view of the harbour. The rooms were beautifully furnished, warm and clean and the property had the added advantage of a parking space. We have had lots of holidays in St Mawes and hope to return and would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous apartment in the heart of St Mawes

Upper Bohella is a luxurious apartment with great views right in the heart of St Mawes, with great access to all the local restaurants and shops. The standard of interior decoration is stylish and comfortable, with a superb living space and bedrooms on the second level which would be great for kids but acted as the perfect "man cave" on our trip. Car parking is also an advantage. We will be returning to this great holiday venue!

Autumn sunny Holiday.

This was the second year we have stayed in St..Mawes, was lucky to have glorious weather again. It's such a pretty place and with the ferry to Falmouth, there is always something to do and places to eat. Of course the Oyster Fesrival was an added joy. We found The Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick Beach, for lunch one day was delightful, Bohella Upper House is the ideal location to enjoy The Roseland peninsular, and has been decorated and furnished to the highest standard We sent pictures to friends in USA of one of the beautiful sunsets overlooking the harbour, they said what a peaceful romantic place St.Mawes is.

Perfectly located in St Mawes

St Mawes is a great place to holiday whether sailing, beaching, walking or simply relaxing and Upper Bohella House is the perfect place to stay! Located right in the heart of the town close to beaches, the picturesque harbour, shops, pubs and great restaurants, Bohella is a luxurious duplex, light and airy with fabulous views out across the sea. Beautifully furnished with great attention to detail, there are two sitting rooms, ideal when travelling with children or teenagers, four exceptionally well-fitted bathrooms and wonderfully comfortable beds in all the bedrooms. The balcony provides a delightful place to catch the sun or watch the world go by and in the late evening the apartment is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended.

A holiday in St Mawes

We've visited St. Mawes a number of times over the past 12 years and this is only the second time we have stayed in accommodation which is fitted out to such a high standard. One of our bugbears is uncomfortable beds in holiday lets, even when you pay high rentals, this was definitely not the case in Upper Bohella. The central location was a plus for us and although lively in the day it was always quiet by bedtime. We would highly recommend this property for holidays.

I want to visit again!

I couldn't recommend this place enough; a beautifully styled house in a great location overlooking the village and harbour. My family and I spent a fantastic and thoroughly relaxing week there. The only comment I would make (and I almost feel embarrased mentioning this) is that it needs more mirrors in the bedrooms so that you're able to blow dry your hair!! The only one in the main bedroom was over the bed so was impossible to use. That is my only slightly negative comment, otherwise it's perfect.

One of the best holiday homes in St Mawes very near to the harbour front

Upper Bohella is situated in the most convenient spot for all that St Mawes has to offer. The views from the very long balcony are exceptional and it is a great place to sit in the sun as the sun is on the balcony all afternoon and evening. The accommodation is very spacious and easy to care for and very welcoming as it is a very warm home. Would certainly stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending this tasteful property to others who visit St Mawes.
