Alan from Beckenham stayed at Number One for 3 nights in June
A studio flat with a high standard of finishesand equipment, very close to the waterfront and ideal for two. The notes left by the owner were comprehensive and very helpful. Having read previous reviews, as a 6-footer, I was concerned about the bed but it was fine. Lack of a dining table is a problem but we managed. Parking is a problem but we were able to stop outside to unload before continuing down to find a parking spot. As we were exploring the area, we were out for most of the day and, on return, I was able to find a spot on the front each afternoon and stay overnight for free. It just meant that I had to get back by 8.30am to move it to the jetty parking for an hour (1 for an hour). We found eating out and drink prices high. 8.50 for a 250ml glass of red wine in the St. Mawes Hotel was extortionate.

David from Hartlepool stayed at Number One for 7 nights in September
Excellent location and value for money in autumn. Bathroom had little pieces of mould around the tiles. Otherwise no complaints. St .Mawes was good for visiting all the attractions we desired.

Theresa from Birmingham stayed at Number One for 7 nights in September
We found the one roomed apartment very clean and ideally located, we had a lovely stay. The bed was rather small and the pillows uncomfortable, which didn't make for very comfortable sleeps. Also, the sofa wasn't very comfortable either, it was hard to sit without sliding down the seat.

Number One is a lovely comfortable apartment in the delightful village of St Mawes. Everything was close to hand, we didn't need to use the car at all. A very relaxing break.

Guest from Liverpool stayed at Number One for 7 nights in July
Number 1 is compact but cosy . Well equipped for two and well maintained. Downsides were the short bed ( and I am 5'6 ) ,the lack of a dining table and chairs , and the slippy leather sofa. That said, we had a wonderful week in St Mawes. Best meal we had was at Porthminster Beach Cafe in St Ives, but we were glad to get back to the relative peace and beautiful location of St Mawes.
Reply from CaiI am sorry that you found the bed short, it is a standard double bed.

Guest from Hounslow stayed at Number One for 4 nights in April
It was a great place to stay, cozy, clean and well equipped. If you are there for water sport, it is a great spot as it is very close to the sea. Otherwise it is an isolated small village, with narrow roads, almost all with double yellow line and just a small shop which is the coop. The accomodation is great and cannot ask for more than they provided. Keep up

Excellent accommodation in prime position . The lack of dining table and chairs for older people who are not used to eating off their laps was the only problem

Guest from Andover stayed at Number One for 5 nights in September
Ideal location in the centre of St Mawes, Only 100 yards to the quayside, bakery, butchers and well stocked Co-op. Although there is a pub serving decent food with a good atmosphere within 100 yards, it was nice and quiet.

Number one is located perfectly in the village of st.mawes, very clean and compact and even had a dishwasher. We are not keen on leather settees but you cant have everything , and one small detail there were only 4 coat hangers in the wardrobe, otherwise we had a great stay.

This small and perfectly formed studio apartment is an excellent base for visiting the Roseland Peninsular. It is in such a great place, St Mawes is one of my favourite places in Cornwall. Only one criticism - the bed was too small and a bit soft.

Guest from Cornwall stayed at Number One for 3 nights in September
The accommodation is fine, didn't appreciate towels were not provided, my fault as I didn't read the two mentions that they are not provided. In other holiday cottages they are, so be warned. The bed has a tailboard, so if you're tall, your feet will hit that. Otherwise, fine, the shower is excellent, the mirror is lit, so appreciated by my partner for making up etc.
Reply from CornwallsCottages.co.uk on behalf of the OwnerThank you for your informative review and for the positive things you've highlighted about Number One. We want guests to enjoy St Mawes and our flat as much as we do, so are concerned that that there may be a couple of areas in which you feel that we could improve. I am sorry that the lack of towels caused you inconvenience but, as you said, this is mentioned in the details on the website, in addition it is highlighted in the booking confirmation email that you received from Cornwall's Cottages. I am afraid that we are not able, practically, to provide towels within the existing price structure for Number One. I am also sorry that you found the bed's footboard a discomfort. We have tried to make the furniture, fittings and layout, offered by Number One, as clear as possible in the photographs on Cornwall's Cottages website. Being concerned about this matter, I discussed the issue with Cornwall's Cottages today to see if we can improve. During this discussion I was informed that you spoke Cornwall's Cottages, when making your booking, and during that conversation you highlighted, from the website photographs, the bed's footboard and that you were of above average height. I understand that you said that it did not matter and went ahead with the booking. I can only stress the importance of checking that all of the details are to your satisfaction before committing to a booking. I sincerely hope that this experience does not put you off the area in the future.

Guest from Barrow Upon Humber stayed at Number One for 7 nights in September
Perfect little apartment for a couple who want a base that is so close to everything. Clean and tidy, very welcoming, had everything that you could possibly need. Dishwasher was a bonus! Bed was extremely comfy and the lavender scented pillows were a nice touch. Bathroom was well equipped and not a bad size. Very pleased that we chose this apartment!

Guest from Sidmouth stayed at Number One for 7 nights in August
the accommodation was perfect for a couple and in a great spot. Very cosy and the only thing that was missing was the washing machine. Apparently they had replaced it with a dishwasher earlier in the year and we hadnt been advised. One of the reasons it was chosen by us was because it had that in the apartment so it was rather disappointing.
Reply from CornwallsCottages.co.uk on behalf of the OwnerThank you for taking the time and trouble to do a review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Number One. Best wishes, Rob and Cai.

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 once being a little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is now 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 throughout 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 idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head and there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the coast, It comes as no surprise that the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round. Within walking distance of the cottage there are a number of pubs, cafes and hotels, with fine dining restaurants including the famous Hotel Tresanton. St Mawes has a good Co-op supermarket, Post Office, chemist and butcher. Fresh fish is available from a stall on the quay.
