We had a great time here. Krysia was great fun and we felt as if we had known her for years. When we arrived we had tea in the garden and ended up chatting to other lovely guests and breakfast was the same. Our room was cosy and comfortable and like wandering through a Daphne Du Maurier setting for one of her novels. We were sorry to leave for the ferry after a beautiful continental breakfast.

There are numerous reasons to visit Cornwall’s St Mawes. One of them is Braganza. This living monument to a Polish memory has a story to tell if you’re interested. But it’s not for everyone. If you prefer minimalist modernity, forget it! Braganza’s proprietor Kyrisia, readily shares with you all about the house and its romantic, if torrid connection with an exciting escape from Poland. Subject of a well-researched book, you can learn about her Polish mother the charismatic Zofia whose presence pervades Braganza. When Krysia finally retires, who else will take over? Or will this extraordinary time capsule suffer the ultimate fate of clearance and conversion? Stuffed with Victoriana, strange carvings, and countless memorabilia, it includes an enormous, slightly intimidating Polar Bear skin flat against the main wall of the dining area. This place is part museum and part B&B.The rooms are all comfortable and each has its own mix of strange objects, anonymous pictures and comfortable chairs. Book one of the few rooms that look onto the garden and the stunning view of the bay, and you may never want to leave. Breakfasts will appall some visitors. No scrambled eggs or rashers of unhealthy bacon, or slick sausages. Instead, there’s a wonderful mix of fresh fruit, hot croissants, and more than adequate coffee, chocolate or tea. Stay at Braganza for the experience, not just convenience. Riddled with romance, sadness and mystery, one day someone will ask you “Tell us about Braganza.”

The huge, elegant house in it's own beautiful grounds is nearly as stylish as it's owner, Krysia. Service from a different era, when nothing was a problem and guests are almost treated like Royalty. A touch of racy Princess Margaret and beautiful Lady Di rather than poor old Fergie. The history of the place seeps into your every step, coupled with spotless bathrooms and bedrooms. Copious amounts of varied food for your Continental breakfast with a tale or two from the host will set you on your way in magical St Mawes. I visit twice a year and have done for over 10 years to get my fix. Unique and rather special indeed.
