Helen from Woking stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in May
As forecast, showery weather was always in the offing. This failed to impact an enjoyable stay, with Little Egret an assured safe haven. We rambled around Penzance and then Mousehole, in pouring rain an atmospheric experience. An evening meal at the Kings Head at Tregony, lunch at The Nare and a cream tea at the Rose in Vale at Mithian provided some of the highlights. There again, strolling across beautiful beaches takes some beating.

Tim from St. Ives stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in April
We had an excellent holiday while staying at Little Egret, with good access to the coast path for walking and good local pubs and restaurants. The property is well equipped and very comfortable. It is an excellent base for exploring the Roseland Peninsula.

Guest from Sheffield stayed at Little Egret for 4 nights in November
Tidy, warm, and had all we needed for a very homely stay. Wi-fi was great, especially as only phone signal down by the harbor. Local area has all that you could need and lovely friendly folks. Highly recommend Little Egret!

Guest from London stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in September
Little Egret was such a lovely first-floor apartment - cosy, comfortable, with the most amazing view across the bay. Friendly pubs, restaurants and coffee shops abound, and nearby is a newly-refurbished supermarket, and butchers and bakers with fresh local produce. The regular passenger ferry will take you across the bay to Falmouth, and a ten-minute walk will take you to the castle, built by Henry VIII and the sub-tropical gardens of Lamorrans.

We found Little Egret clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It is in an ideal location for visiting St Mawes, with easy access to the ferries and to various coastal walks or, if it rains, it is very pleasant just to sit on the sofa and watch the boats and the sea.

Guest from Warragul stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in June
We had a great week and loved the view from the flat and roof terrace. The kitchen was very well equipped. The only minor problem was the hot tap in the kitchen only produced a trickle. The EU fi was good and the information on the local area was very useful.

Guest from Newton Abbot stayed at Little Egret for 4 nights in April
No one to contact on weekends. We had power cut, no torch to be found, not knowing property had to hunt for candles and matches. TV stopped working no one got back to me. Caretaker very rude could have informed me as she knew it was a holiday let apartment! No oven gloves so how do you get hot food out of oven! Did not supply washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets. I have stayed at several rental properties before and have been expected to provide these items myself. When complaining told there is a co op round the corner! A bit of s cop out! The company providing the rental etc should make sure it is equipped properly. Also the fact no one is in the office on a Saturday morning when most people leave/arrive!
Reply from Cornwalls CottagesLet down and disappointed because the TV stopped working because of a completely unforeseen 2 hour power cut in St Mawes? I would kindly refer guests to the great reviews of this lovely apartment by others who have stayed. Cornwalls Cottages man a 24 hour emergency phone and the caretaker and Owner's phones are both provided to guests. Mrs Ramsden failed to contact any of these during her stay and left early because the TV was not working, missing a quite stunning spring weekend in St Mawes when the sun shone, the water glistened and many, many people enjoyed strolling around the harbour or relaxing on the terraces of the local hostelries. St Mawes and Little Egret have so much to offer the visitor, it is such as shame Mrs Ramsden had to leave early.

Carole from Royston stayed at Little Egret for 5 nights in October
We chose Little Egret because of its location and the photo on the website of the cosy looking sittingroom and were not dissapointed! Comfortable, clean appartment with everything needed to enjoy a stay. A 2 minute walk to the ferry for Falmouth and a 10 minute meander up the road to view the Castle. Fortunately for us the weather was warm ( 20 celcius) over the weekend we stayed and that was a bonus but l imagine Little Egret is a great place to stay anytime of year. Would definitely return.

Catherine J from Burswood stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in September
Good sized unit, with comfortable bedrooms and a well appointed kitchen, although it did smell a bit of smoking. It was in a good position with parking. Wifi was good, Pity there was no hairdryer and the washing was 6 per load. Enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the unit.

Our five-day break was very reasonably priced. Perfectly positioned, with free car-parking, Little Egret met all our expectations. It didn't matter that the weather was 'changeable'.

We spent a long weekend at Little Egret in early November. We found the flat clean,cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. We loved having sea views and being near the sea front. The flat was exactly as it looked on the website. We would definitely stay here again.It was also interesting to experience St.Mawes out of season.

Guest from South Lanarkshire stayed at Little Egret for 7 nights in July
Lovely spacious apartment next to village square and just across the road from the seafront. We travel to St. Mawes at least once per year & Little Egret was a great find which I booked ay the last minute after seeing it on Facebook, we will certainly be back. The free reserved parking space is an added bonus due to there being little or no parking except in the village car park which is really busy.

A very enjoyable week in this very comfortable apartment. Walked a great deal along the coastal paths and enjoyed good food in local pubs and restaurants.
Mike & Pat, Sep 2011
Our third visit to Little Egret! We have enjoyed a relaxing week. It's so peaceful here!
Sue & John, Sep 2010

Little Egret is located on the first floor of the popular Beach Hall right in the heart of St Mawes. Overlooking the pretty harbour and out over St Mawes Bay, the apartment is a perfect place to base yourself on the idyllic Roseland Peninsula. The building is just a few steps from the shops, a couple of well known pubs and for the kids, there is a beach (covered at high tide) just over the road.

Beach Hall is a really popular building in St Mawes as all the apartments share one of the village's finest views from a terrace.

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.
