Elizabeth from Carmarthen stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in September
This was our 5th stay at Long Commons - which speaks for itself! I particularly appreciate the lift, and the general suitability of the property for people with disabilities. We hope to return again next year.

Guest from Kidderminster stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in August
This was a super family holiday for four generations. The upstairs living room with balcony provides a wonderful place to just sit and enjoy the view, especially good for the elderly members of our party if they did not feel like going far. The balcony is also very safe - the toddler in our group found it a constant source of entertainment without us having to worry about his safety. The lift provided access for the less mobile (you need to request use of the lift in advance). The house is very well equipped - all we could wish for. St Mawes is beautiful, friendly and welcoming.

Peter from Kencot stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in August
A very enjoyable stay at long commons. It's is very well equipped large comfortable house. The full sky package on the TV is a very nice touch. It has good views of the sea below and a large garden for children to play. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and booked for the following year before leaving. Thanks Cornwalls holidays for a greasy house which helped make our holiday.

Christopher from Camberley stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in April
What a fabulous place in a superb location with views across the estuary. The house has everything that a large family needs. We were 6 adults and a 4 year old so en-suite rooms all round matched what we needed perfectly. The upside down layout makes best use of the superb views and with a huge kitchen/diner/lounge so much family time was spent together. With full laundry facilities along with a full array of outside eating crockery and cutlery and games equipment you would be hard pushed to find a place better equipped than this one. We took a telescope and spent many evenings watching the stars and ISS overhead.

Matthew from Acton Beauchamp stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in October
We originally booked it because of the lift for my 91 year old father-in-law who was recovering from a back operation. Unfortunately he suffered a heart attack in the summer and although recovering well, he was not able to come with us. So for 2 people and 2 dogs, it was very comfortable. Overall it was alovely house and we would like to return again Thank you

From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right decision. Well equipped and breathtaking views. 3 double bedrooms had breath-taking views across the garden over to St Anthony's. The other 2 had views of the drive which weren't so exciting but quiet.

Glenn from Kingswinford stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in July
A beautiful house in a beautiful location! We couldn't have been happier on our arrival at 'Long Commons' and our week there didn't disappoint. A perfect base from which to explore St Mawes & the surrounding area though we were reluctant to leave the house as it is so amazing, with views that we wish we could wake up to every day! Being able to walk down into St Mawes meant we didn't even get in the cars for three days. There are so many lovely places to eat, a few pretty shops, a little supermarket that has all the essentials plus visiting Falmouth & other locations along the Fal estuary by boat is a unique & fun way to travel! Long Commons has everything you could possibly need and the little extras like milk, biscuits & a bottle of wine on our arrival were lovely touches & very much appreciated. The addition of an external staircase from the living area down to the garden would only enhance the property, as having to go through a bedroom to access the rear garden was a bit of a pain, especially with two dogs but this would not prevent us from returning as it is outweighed by so many wonderful features!!! We hope to return to this beautiful house, thank you for a very special holiday :) xxx

Clive from Runcorn stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in June
The house was excellent with just several points needing attention. The vanity unit 1st floor bathroom was impossible for a person restricted to a wheelchair - too high. Too often the wc had to be cleaned thus I feel a more sophisticated model should be considered. The dishwasher needed cleaning the rim around the drop down door. However notwithstanding the foregoing we would visit again.

We were very impressed with Long Commons and St Mawes. We were lucky to have good weather which allowed us to do all the local coastal walks we wanted to do. My wife and I both said we would have liked to have stayed for another week as the whole experience was a pleasure and totally relaxing.

Elizabeth from Carmarthen stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in May
This was our third visit to Long Commons and once again we had a thoroughly good week in this beautiful house. It has been refurbished recently, and the pictures on the website aren't up to date as yet. Gone are the lovely leather armchairs sadly, with low squishy replacements. On the plus side, new beds, new bed linen and new towels all added to the comfort. As ever, the lift was so useful. St Mawes is a very pleasant place to stay and we enjoyed our daily wander down to the village. The Roseland peninsula has so much to see and do and I 'm sure we'll be back again next year.

We all had a wonderful stay at Long Commons, the house is superb with bathrooms for everyone and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could want. The views from the house and garden make you want to just sit and watch life on the water. I would not hesitate in recommending this property but would add that the walk down into St. Mawes and back up again can be challenging.

Christine from Camberley stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in March
Place was wonderful with truly superb facilities and views. The seven of us had a great week with so many attractions in the area to visit and that Long Commons was the perfect base to strike out from each day. Only downside was the fact that we were given the wrong combination to open the key safe on arrival. Being Easter Sunday the caretakers, owners and Booking Agency did not answer their phones so 45 minutes of number combination attempts finally revealed the correct code. Once inside we were truly amazed at the quality of the premises and would have no hesitation in returning here. Beds were very comfortable and with en-suites to every bedroom along with a TV in each bedroom as well as full SKY TV system in the main living room. We were pleased that we brought a telescope with us as the night sky was fantastic.
Reply from Cornwalls CottagesWe are delighted you enjoyed your stay and the delights of Long Commons. Unfortunately we had not been informed of the key code change by the owner, who was mortified and hugely apologetic. However your early arrival considerably before 4pm did mean that the relevant people were regrettably not available to help you. We do our best to be available to all guests checking in, in case of any problems, as do the housekeepers. We hope to welcome you back to Cornwall again soon.

James from Cheltenham stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in September
Our week at Long Commons was a huge success. The property was spacious, clean and wonderfully equipped. The views, being above the village, were superb. The short walk down to the harbour kept us fit and St Mawes is a pleasure to relax in. The owners were extremely helpful and obliging to us. We were very sorry to leave. If one is being picky, the bed linen did not match up to the quality of the rest of the house. We certainly hope to return.

Guest from Southampton stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in May
We went as a couple for a break away, but you could easily have 9 people in there and not be on top of each other. This is the first time we have stayed at St Mawes and is a great little village. The house is perched at the top, there is a cut through the hotel tresanton which is 137 steps - I would advise using this on the way back up as the roads are pretty steep. There are great walks nearby and you can get the ferry to Falmouth which runs every half an hour. The house itself is equipped with everything you require, the wifi is good and all the bedrooms had good sized TV's. It has lovely views and modcons you would expect. The only thing we thought was the cutlery needed a bit of updating - but a plate is a plate. We would stay there again if we ever got the opportunity.

Guest from Plymouth stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in April
Apart from the rain on the last day of our stay,there are no complaints whatsoever! The house was clean,bright,airy and comfortable.All of the furniture and electrical equipment were of a very good standard.The garden is well manicured and maintained by a very competent team.The views from both the house and the garden are superb.The owners made themselves known to us early in the visit and had we experienced any problems we are confident that we would have had any trouble sorted out.It is obvious that they have gone out of their way to make this place safe,warm and welcoming . St.Mawes is a busy coastal village with many amenities and the ferry to Falmouth is a refreshing change to using road transport. We thoroughly enjoyed our week's visit and regret that we could not stay longer.We hope to return sometime!

Guest from Andover stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in April
High standard of accommodation - spacious, light and the house has been designed to a very high spec. Its location is excellent: whilst it may not be in the centre of St Mawes, the harbour and shops are entirely walkable and the views that you get from the property's elevated position are breathtaking. The owners made us feel very welcome, leaving some delicious treats for us upon our arrival (wine, chocolate, biscuits), and popping round on the first morning to check that all was well. The disabled lift made a huge difference to one of our party who has limited mobility. At first glance the property was clean, but there were a few niggles, mainly things that would not be apparent to someone coming in to clean on changeover day. For example, some of the equipment in the kitchen needed washing before use, there were some food scraps on the edge of the kitchen carpet where it meets the cupboards, quite a few spotlights in the lounge and landing areas did not work. Having said this, they were all small things - cleaning kitchen equipment is almost always prudent, if not necessary, when staying in a self-catering property - we had a wonderful time and are most grateful to the owners for making us feel so welcome.

Long Commons is an excellent base for a holiday in the picturesque village of St Mawes. It is in a quiet location, within walking distance of all the village amenities, with spectacular views. The house is a modern, high spec design, light and airy, very comfortable and clean. The kitchen is well equipped. For us, the accessibility was a huge bonus - the lift and adapted shower room were much appreciated, and the welcoming and friendly owners sourced extra equipment on request. It is a very relaxing environment - what could be nicer than sitting up in bed, sipping coffee, and gazing at the boats bobbing in the harbour below? We all hoped this would be the first of many stays at Long Commons.

We stayed for a week in Long Commons - a wonderful house in an idyllic location. Wonderful views from the house especially two bedrooms. Loved seeing the sun rise every morning. Well equipped, everything you need - loved having the gas bbq and dishwasher as made life easy. Quick walk in to st mawes - not so quick walking back up the hills! Also take a torch if youre going to walk back at night - not much street lighting but perfect for viewing the stars! The Idle Rocks makes a perfect place for sundowner cocktails each night! Would highly recommend and cant wait to return.

What a wonderful stay at Long Commons in St Mawes. The house is wonderful with all mod cons that you could ever require! The view across the Estuary is breathtaking from the lounge balcony and garden. The owners have put a lot of thought into all the extras they provide to ensure your stay is perfect, our little one loved all the toys which were available to use in the house. We even had fab weather which was an added bonus!! A well enjoyed holiday in a lovely house and would recommend to anyone.

Guest from Theydon Bois stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in July
A lovely house with stunning views and well situated for the centre of St Mawes. The owners, Paula and Leslie, were extremely helpful and quickly sorted out any problems we had. We felt that the bed in the upstairs bedroom was both uncomfortable and too small. There really should be a 6ft bed in this master room. My wife being disabled also found that having carpets everywhere did not make getting around in a wheelchair very easy. Otherwise the house was well equipped and we would return.

Guest from Richmond stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in May
The house was comfortable and quite well equipped. The sitting/dining room is too cluttered with furniture and I did not use the master bedroom downstairs as it had a cot. IIT would be better if the cot were put out when it is required for a child. It was not possible for my husband to use the sink in the disabled wet room as he could not get the wheelchair close enough due to the cupboard underneath. Also, the carpeting throughout meant that he was not able to get round the house without assistance. The garden was lovely and the views are spectacular. We had a good week Kind regards Jane Crichtob

Guest from Framlingham stayed at Long Commons for 7 nights in April
We booked the holiday to enable us as a family ,with some special friends to visit the area of Cornwall we had come to very regularly each year when our children were growing up and which we all loved. My husband uses a wheel chair and has major mobility problems so Long Commons was absolutely perfect for us with its internal lift and disability adapted wet room with the master bedroom. The owners were very welcoming and supportive particularly checking that my husband had everthing he needed. The house is wonderfully situated with spectacular views and having the main communal areas on the first floor we were all able to benefit from these views. We were extremely fortunate with the weather which gave us wall to wall sunshine for the whole week.

The booking service from Cornwalls Cottages was very efficient and the person I spoke to when I booked was very helpful and pleasant. We will certainly be booking through you again - possibly at Long Commons later this year.

The view from the terrace is stunning. The house is super cool and comfortable. Really enjoyed my stay.
Allesandra , Apr 2013
Breathtaking views with spacious interior and top of the range facilities. I was on holiday to explore but when I saw the house I didn't want to leave. Hope to return.

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.
