Providing incredible panoramic views of St Mawes harbour, this spacious reverse level luxury holiday home is situated in the exclusive western end of St Mawes, close to the castle. The property benefits from a heated plunge pool (available June to end of August) with permanent safety cover, a large garden, dog friendly, within walking distance of beaches, classic pubs and fine restaurants. Cobblestones will provide a memorable dream holiday or short break.

Property Details

Cobblestones has some of the best panoramic views in St Mawes, being situated in the exclusive western end of the village close to the castle built by Henry VIII in the 1540s. Cobblestones is reverse level with the main entrance on the same level as the main bedrooms and living area; south facing, with a full width balcony, heated plunge pool (available June to September) with permanent safety cover, large garden, plenty of parking and all within walking distance of the village. This is a fantastic property for larger groups and families with a "dormitory" bedroom downstairs that children absolutely love.

Cobblestones is a 5 minute walk from the pretty harbour area of St Mawes and is one of Cornwall's most desirable holiday destinations and the stunning harbour, surrounded by lovely local shops, restaurants, bars and hotels is a constant bustle of vibrancy during the season. There are ferry links from the harbour to St Anthony, Falmouth, Trelissick and Malpas. During the winter it is a quiet, peaceful village that rarely sees frosts or snow. However the best feature of Cobblestones is, without a doubt, the incredible views. It would be easy to while away your entire holiday watching the world go by with yachts, power boats and ferries constantly traversing the vista and occasional shipping movements in Falmouth Bay or heading up the river to the commercial port.

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 Hotel Tresanton) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes’ walk including a Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has both a doctor’s and a dentist’s surgery.

Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.

Great place to stay

Excellent accommodation with superb views over percuil river estuary and Falmouth bay. The plunge pool is plenty big enough for kids to swim in. Steep drive to the property a bit of a challenge to the faint hearted and the 90 odd steps up from Lower Castle rd can be a bit daunting for some. Difficult to fault the property itself - if nit picking I would say it could do with some more tea spoons and glasses.

Cobblestones large but not luxurious

The property is obviously designed for two families and their children, We as a couple found it it to be comfortable but not luxurious as I had been lead to believe. It has obviously had a lot of work carried out in recent years. The bedrooms were very basic, with medium sized beds, the dining furniture was screwed together and the lounge settees, whilst large were far too low for people of our age, The setting was superb, but although we had been warned the gradient down to the property was very daunting.

From the Owner:
Thanks very much for your comments. I'm glad you found the house comfortable. All the beds upstairs are King sized.

Very comfortable, with unsurpassed views

Had a great time in Upper Cobblestones. Location is fantastic, especially when blessed with sunshine. Worth mentioning however - the drive is VERY steep. After unloading when we arrived, we left the car at the top, even for loading up again when we left. Balcony is 100% safe, but would be good to have a couple of low tables; a little narrow for eating out, but fine for drinks! Sofas are for sinking into, but hard to get out of!

From the Owner:
We are glad you enjoyed the house and benefitted from lovely Cornish weather. The new balcony width is restricted due to building regulations so that is why there is now a new large decking area at pool level, in the garden, to enjoy outside dining. Photos should be updated soon on the website.

We were a group of friends visiting the Roseland for a wedding. We had a wonderful weekend, the views from the cottage were awesome, very comfortable in every way and we are determined to return!

From the Owner:
We are so pleased you had a wonderful weekend in the house and enjoyed the beautiful St Just Church.

Disappointing

WeA?ve stayed at this house several times before and before the prices were raised the location and view made up for the poor condition of the house. We had hoped there would be investment to match the increased price but it was clear Thiabyear that is not the case. The house is tired and unloved and in need of updating and adding a few quality and comfort touches. It is functional but in poor repair. Compare this cost with similar properties and the value does not stand up. ItA?s a real shame as the location and view are top quality.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. We are surprised as your comments do not reflect other guests feedback and we do not agree the house is in poor repair. We invest and update areas of the house yearly and recently have repainted the interior, added brand new beds and replaced some of the carpets and curtains. We are aiming to further improve both the outside pool area and kitchen this winter.

Good and not so good review!

Fantastic views great house for our large family. Drive rather steep wouldnA?t want to use it in very cold weather. Kitchen could do with a new large cooker. Balcony unsafe for toddlers and young children. Would recommend to friends without young children, but most like us have young grandchildren!

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. There is parking at the top of the drive for those who do not wish to drive down. We had already planned to upgrade the cooker over the winter. We are sorry you feel the balcony is unsafe. We would be grateful if you could contact our agent to give more details of your concern. We have had many years of family holidays with babies and toddlers in Cobblestones and never had safety concerns. We have already agreed to upgrade the balcony in the New Year to glass to improve the panoramic view and this would enclose it completely. We are also upgrading the outside area around the pool for a larger seating area. We hope guests will enjoy both areas next Spring and Summer.

Stunning location

Stunning location with fantastic views over the estuary from the living room and bedrooms. The plunge pool was bigger than expected which came as a welcome surprise. Very pleasant walk down to St Mawes harbour via the garden steps. (Some motion sensor lighting would be helpful at night when returning from the village.)

Great view

... so why put one sofa with its back to the view? Anyway, lovely house. Great view. Fast WiFi. Comfy beds. Could have done with summer-weight duvets though. Took the lovely ferry to Falmouth, and explored St Mawes & the castle.

Short break in Cornwall

A lovely well appointed holiday property with stunning views and spacious accommodation. Lovely and warm throughout during a cold, wet and blustery weekend. Unfortunately the wifi would not work at all for the entire stay which was a nightmare for two teenage children. It would have been a nice touch to have left a welcome pint of milk and maybe a loaf of bread as after a four and a half hour trip in horrendous rain we then had to go back out to try and source some! Still, we had a lovely stay!

From the Owner:
Dear Mr Jones, We are glad you had a lovely stay. We apologise the Wi-Fi was not working during your stay. We would encourage guests to contact our housekeeper regarding any issues at the time, so they can be resolved for you during your stay. We have since upgraded our Wi-Fi and changed to another provider so that we have unlimited fast Fibre broadband.
