Roger from Gloucester stayed at Chupra for 4 nights in May
A rather tired property but with stunning views and comfortable enough for our short break. Not a property for anyone with mobility problems - steps everywhere. We were advised about the building works at the rear which was quite noisy but the temporary fencing they have put up along the footpath has made it very narrow. The footpath down from the car parking space which is very tight is steep and uneven and makes bringing luggage up and down very difficult. A lovely garden although we had to fill a few holes and dog proof the gate. The property was well equipped but both the outside bins were full and we had nowhere to put our rubbish.

Jayne from Sheffield stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in April
Having stayed at Chupra a few times now, we found it just as lovely. Comfortable, homely and in a wonderful location. A little different this time because of the huge building works at the back of the house, which was quite noisy, This won't put us off booking again.

Amanda from Tinsbury stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in October
Chupra has amazing sea views and a wonderful garden. We had a very comfortable stay and lovely time in St. Mawes. Our dog didn't want to leave the garden and was welcomed most places in St Mawes. Loved the ferry to Place and walk to Porth scathing on the coast path. A wonderful holiday.

Rebecca from Sheffield stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in August
I booked Chupra for my parents as it was their Diamond Wedding Anniversary during the week. We stayed close by and the rest of our family joined us through the week. Chupra is a great place with a very homely feel. It is very clean and well maintained but retains a comfortable, family feel. We all had a great week celebrating with a family barbecue to help my parents mark their 60 years together. The glorious weather helped us to enjoy the generous patio area and garden. Hopefully we will be back next year. Many Thanks

Rebecca from Brighouse stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in August
We are a family of 6 who stayed at chupra,of all ages from grandma to youngest 12.The house was very well equipped with everything you need,although the deco is tired.The location is great being a stones throw from the beach and shops.The car parking space is tricky.Its very tight and once parked it is difficult to carry your luggage down to the property-good job we had 2 strong teenagers to help grandparents as they could get their cases down.We also came with a dog which I feel I should mention that the gate needs to be more enclosed as he could escape.Overall it was good.

Sue from Bedfordshire stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in June
This is our second year at Chupra, which I think speaks volumes and we love it. Great position in a beautiful village with lovely views and lovely patio to sit at and take it all in. It does have a lovely homely feel to it as opposed to just being a holiday cottage. The weather was not great but there are some great pubs in which to take "refuge" on bad days!!!! The fish and chips at The Victory Inn are brilliant. Thank you so much to the owners for letting others share their home in Cornwall.

Ricky from Bristol stayed at Chupra for 5 nights in June
The house was book for 3 engineers to stay at in order to carry out work at Falmouth Docks. the web site stated 4 miles from Falmouth. what it failed to say was either....as the crow flies or across the water on the ferry!! this meant an hour drive if they didn't catch the ferry. despite that the house was lovely & in a beautiful setting. I have only rated the location poor due to the distance from Falmouth Docks.

William from Cheltenham stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in April
We had and excellent week. The view over the bay is gorgeous. This is on the hillside in east StMawes, so expect to climb up or down when you leave the house.The path from the car parking space(s) to the house can be muddy when it rains. Everything we used in the house worked well. The bed linen was crisp and clean.

Jennifer from Bristol stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in November
Other reviews have commented on the access to the property but we found the path reasonably easy although a torch was essential. The cottage is only a very short walk from the harbour . We loved the sea views and enjoyed some meals on the terrace even in November. We loved the bread from the bakery and meat and cheese from the butchery. The fish and chips from the Watch Out were amazing. Our favourite place for a drink was the Hotel St Mawes.

Rebecca from Sheffield stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in August
We found Chupra to be very homely and great value for money. The outside areas are lovely and are ideal for family meals or barbecues. I feel the description for access does not convey the difficult nature of getting to the property on foot. My Father has Parkinson's Disease and therefore has mobility problems and found it difficult at the steps without a handrail. Fortunately we were there in advance and checked out the access but anyone arriving in the dark or unaware of the access could find themselves stuck. Overall this is a great property and we would definitely stay there again.

Guest from Surrey stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in July
St Mawes is a great location. Chupra is a nice place to stay, towels and linen were excellent. However we felt that the interior decor could do with a touch of paint, and some of the dishes and pans in the cupboards were dirty and needed to be washed before use. Whilst we knew about the access, we did not feel that the difficulties accessing the property with luggage etc were explained sufficiently.

Keiko from Minneapolis stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in July
We had a wonderful weeklong stay at Chupra in St Mawes. We were traveling from US for a family wedding & Chupra fit our needs perfectly. It was a little tricky to find, and the footpath from the parking area to the cottage makes it unsuitable for some older folks, but it was fine for us (3 in their 60s, 2 in their 49s, 2 kids under 11). The house is well outfitted with all the supplies you'd need for a fabulous holiday. The garden and patio are spacious & lovely. Having the sitting area separated from the sleeping areas was great, allowing jet-lagged folks to sleep without disturbance from those awake. It was great to have a clothes washer & dryer, although the latch on the washer definitely needs to be fixed, as it stuck and made it nearly impossible to open the washer door! There was loads of helpful info provided about what to do in the area, which was much appreciated. It's a lovely cottage and we would definitely recommend it.

Guest from Bletsoe stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in June
What a lovely cottage to stay in in a beautiful location. It really was more like home than being on holiday. My favourite bit was having a dog beach so close to the property as usually beaches for dogs are miles away. We could take the dog for a swim, stop at the pub on they way back all in a very short walk. This was certainly our best holiday and would be very surprised if we did not return!!!!

Guest from Leominster stayed at Chupra for 7 nights in May
A very convenient position, but parking awful and access for unloading and loading not easy. The kitchen cupboards had half used food in them and cutlery drawer dirty, we started by cleaning and putting things in dishwasher. Accommodation tight for 6/7 and 'tired'. Beds comfortable and good quality towels. We had phone Cornwall Cottages and asked specifically about ease of access as we had a 5 month old baby, and their opinion would not be ours about suitability and ease of off loading. I have communicated our thoughts to Cornwall Cottages since our return, but they still feel this is good value for money, there we would also disagree.

Customer testimonials

A new home is being constructed on a site to the rear of Chupra. Whilst we expect very little disturbance, all prices have been reduced by 10% for the rest of the year.

Chupra enjoys a lovely, quiet location in St Mawes, a five minute walk up a short (and a little steep) hill from the beautiful harbour in St Mawes. The house is all on one level and has views across Falmouth Bay to the entrance of the Helford River in the distance. The house has the benefit of 2 private parking spaces a short 50m away from the house along a footpath. The house is cosy in the winter with an open fire (logs and coal available from the local shop) and modern electric heating.

In the summer months Chupra really comes into its own with the lovely big private terrace and garden - a terrific place for all the family to enjoy. Fully enclosed, it becomes a total suntrap and enjoys evening sun until late. It is a great place to enjoy a BBQ! The house has been continually renovated over the years and benefits from granite worktops in the kitchen, double glazing throughout, a family bathroom and an additional shower room with a useful tiled entrance porch and utility room. This is a perfect place for a family holiday or just for a couple or two looking for a base to explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.


Accommodation
Ground Floor: Entrance into large porch with plenty of wardrobe space. The utility room is to the rear. Through to the main hall. The lounge / dining room has plenty of comfortable seating, an open fire place and lovely sea views. There is a sliding door onto the terrace. The kitchen is fully fitted, also with sea views and useful access to the terrace. The master double bedroom has a 5' double bed, followed by another double bedroom with a 4'6" bed both of which have sliding doors leading onto the terrace. The third bedroom is at the rear with a set of bunk beds and a single bed. All the bedrooms have washbasins. The family bathroom and shower room both have WCs.
Exterior: The fantastic terrace has a built in BBQ, large outside table and chairs. There are 2 lawned areas to the front on a split level and a lawn to the rear.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via central heating and the open fire. The kitchen has a range of modern equipment. There is an electric oven and hob, a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge / freezer and dishwasher.

These spaces are accessed via a short public footpath where you will possibly need a torch at night. Access to the house is via the footpath from above (where the parking spaces are) or from a short footpath from the lane below the house.

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.
