5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013
people found this review helpful

We stayed in Pier Cottage in October 2013 with our two young children (4 and 3). We have been coming to St Mawes for several years and know the village to be a very special place with so much for children and views to die for. We tend to come in spring or autumn to avoid the busy summer period but even so our usual cottage was booked this time however so Pier Cottage had a lot to live up to! We chose it primarily for it's proximity to the beach, harbour and bakery (opposite) and happily it did not disappoint. We booked through Helpful Holidays who were very efficient and, well, helpful!

The cottage has an "upside down" layout (which the girls loved) with the bedrooms on the ground floor to make the most of the incredible panoramic views from the living room. There is a twin room, family bathroom and double bedroom with ensuite wet room and access to the terraced courtyard area outside. Having the bathroom just feet away from the front door proved a useful facility...

My husband and I, along with friends, came to St. Mawes for the week just before the intense summer holidays began. We chose this village as a base from which to explore Cornwall, and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The village is very charming, with a surprising number of good restaurants for its size, and with interesting houses and gardens, as well as the atmospheric castle fortress at the end of the street, to be seen on strolls around town. We understand that the village, and Cornwall, get pretty crowded in the last part of July and August, but we felt we timed our stay just right between the sleepiness of the off season and the too busy holiday time. Of course the weather was, as the locals said, "rubbish," for several days. However, that's just the normal part of visiting England, where it can be any weather any day. There are great hikes close by--we enjoyed hiking around the peninsula across the water from us.

The village is dominated...

Thanks for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed St Mawes and Pier Cottage but very sorry to hear that you encountered an unusual plumbing issue on your last day. We'll pass your comments on to the owner and hope to welcome you back to the West Country again soon. Should you ever experience any... more
