Elizabeth from Bedale stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in July
Excellent stay as in previous years no complaints. Only slight dissatisfaction very minor , some of the easy chairs are not very easy!! Especially when one comes to get out of them but maybe I'm getting a bit stiff with the encroaching years! Not really a problem..

Steve from Wolverhampton stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in June
We booked at very short notice & were really pleased with the cottage. The view from the lounge / dining room and two front bedrooms is stunning. We noticed other reviewers had mentioned the bathroom - with its very sloping ceiling - and yes this could be a problem for some - but not us The outside terrace was very useful and very quiet when we were there. The steps up to the terrace are a bit overgrown but not a problem.

Graeme from London stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in May
Excellent location, lovely cottage. We were a party of 6 adults, the cottage has a very tiny shower/bathroom, not much room at all, a very tight squeeze, I only used this room once to shave and struggled with the lack of space. Luckily there is an outside 'eco' toilet (very cool) and outbuilding with shower, which was a great addition - two of use that stayed downstairs basically used this as our ensuite - the shower was fantastic, great power and plenty of hot water. We eventually found the TV, it is the size of a postage stamp! Could not believe a room that size had such a small telly...however, as it was so small, we did not turn it on for the whole week - we actually talked, read books and played board games, actually made the holiday more enjoyable! The sofa needs re-stuffing not that comfortable. We also found the lack of storage space in the bedrooms, especially downstairs a pain. The beds in ALL the rooms are amazing, extremely comfortable, we all slept like logs! If may seem a moaning review, however, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay at the same place again. OH, special thanks to Angie the housekeeper who actually called me when we were travelling down to see if there was anything she could do for us, i.e. had we forgotten anything - Also advised the house was ready before 4 pm if we arrived early.

Julie from Stoke-on-trent stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in January
Had a fabulous week . Stayed 21st to 28th January. The cottage was very comfortable and homely and from the moment we stepped through the door we all started to feel relaxed. Couldn't fault anything and we would recommend Our Cottage to all ages.

Jonathan from Plymouth stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in July
We were delighted with Our Cottage, it was exactly as advertised. Views from living room and two main bedrooms were superb. We are all fairly tall and managed with the upstairs bathroom and separate WC without much problem. The downstairs facilities, across the courtyard made up for it, accommodating the tallest of our group. After morning swims, a very short walk across the road to beach, it was straight back to the courtyard shower to rewarm, couldn't have been better. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer in the shower / utility room. Very useful as we had a couple of wet and windy days. The parking was actually easier than we expected. From 6pm until 10am it was often possible to park on the single yellow line outside Our Cottage. We were away most of the day exploring local beaches, NT houses and gardens, boat trips etc. Main car park, restaurants and pubs less than 5 minutes in either direction. When we did have an enquiry or request for additional services they were quickly attended to by the housekeeper or owners. All in all a great experience.

Lucy from London stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in July
What a perfect place to spend the week! The highlight has to be its location. You are quite literally a stones throw from the beach. Sitting in bed with a cup of tea whilst being able to look uninterrupted, straight out across the sea is really special. It's also only 2 minutes walk from the centre of town. The owners had left a personalised card, some sparkling wine and flowers for our arrival (a lovely and unexpected touch). The beds are superbly comfy (so much so that I'm now changing our beds at home!). The outside space is v practical with hose pipe for wetsuits etc but not the prettiest for sitting in. Showers are decent. With regard to constructive feedback: The floor and under the sofas needed a Hoover when we arrived (hairs and dust!) but there was one at the house so I did it myself. And it would be good to have a dustpan and brush (we couldn't find one) and an indoor clothes airer (it was raining so we couldn't hang stuff to dry outside!)

Elizabeth from Bedale stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in July
Our Cottage has a prime position and is more than adequate in its facilities. Special mention of the "outside loo" with its amazing vegetation - unique . Overall a very nice cottage and special mention of the housekeeping service - so helpful many thanks. My only slight criticism would be the seating provided - probably because I am stiffening up but did find the chairs and sofa challenging for getting upright! A very minor grouse and would not cause any problems. Thank you. E. McIntyre

Anthony from Chichester stayed at Our Cottage for 5 nights in November
We received an outstanding welcome to this superbly located cottage as the friendly and efficient housekeeper had made contact with us a day or so before arrival and was to learn that it was a special family re-union occasion and we were provided with a greetings card, gifts and flowers together with a special gift pack for our six week old grandson. The views from the cottage are stunning and encompass the entire bay of St.Mawes. It is a short scenic walk to the shops and to the castle whilst the pretty beach is a few steps from the door. The cottage is very cosy at night and with the benefit of a real fire. The buiding is full of character and thoughtfully furnished. The front bedrooms boast views of the sea and St. Anthony's Head. Opening the sash windows will provide the tranquil sound of waves lapping the shore. It was an idyllic break enjoyed by us all.

Guest from Beijing stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in August
We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to Our Cottage and also had the pleasure of introducing the property to friends of ours from overseas. The property's location is fantastic and its (very) close proximity to a local beach and the village high street made it a very convenient choice for all the family.

Guest from Evesham stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in June
We had a fantastic weeks stay in Our Cottage, this was our first holiday with 11 month old granddaughter Molly. we were joined by her mum and dad, Hannah and Matt, her auntie Charlotte and future uncle Gregor and her auntie Emma.Our Cottage accommodated us all perfectly and very comfortably. There was plenty of room for Molly to play safely as well as an enclosed courtyard and very sunny terrace. The views from Our Cottage across the bay were outstanding with plenty of boat activity we enjoyed watching the sun rise and set most days.For those in our party insisting on an early morning dip in the sea there is direct access to the beach. Our Cottage is well equipped, there are interesting pictures/photographs on the walls, which provide an interesting insight to the history of Our Cottage and people who have lived there. There plenty of interesting reading matter including an abundance of local guides and great board games. The bathroom accommodation worked well for us with plenty of hot water and we all enjoyed the Eden toilet very much. Our Cottage has great proximity to town, all amenities can be reached easily in minutes allowing us to get fresh bread and pastries in the morning, great Cornish pasties at lunch time and enjoy the local hostelries at night. We all cannot wait for the next opportunity to enjoy Our Cottages hospitality again - roll on next year.

Guest from Titchmarsh stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in May
Although the cottage could sleep eight the bathroom facilities, loo and amount of hot water could not accomodate this many people. Also it stated we were expected to clean the house including bathrooms and ovens. Given the amount of money I paid and the fact that this was not my own holiday house I would not expect to clean it before I left. The location was wonderful and the bedrooms were of good size ( although would have preferred at least one double bed) , the living room was also lovely and spacious and the table easily seated eight which was good.
Reply from Paul StephensWe are very sorry about the impression given that you were responsible for cleaning the cottage. Our caretaker normally handles this. We will review and update the cottage instructions, and take on board your suggestions regarding a double bed, and improved hot water supply.

Guest from Exeter stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in May
Fantastic location, and very comfortable. There was a Cornwallscottages sign in the window, which seemed to encourage people to peer in - embarassing. It was not made clear when we booked that we were expected to clean up at the end of the week - we were directed to the cleaning products! The bag in the Henry vacuum cleaner had burst - it had obviously not been emptied for months. Bins overfull and in a mess, which we sorted out. No TV as advertised.

Guest from Birmingham stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in October
a fantastic place with fantastic views, we have been coming to St Mawes for over 30 years and the views where the best. A couple of things could have been avoided the accommodation we felt wasn't clean, with the outside shower room and upstairs bathroom needing a good scrubbing (the Saturday afternoon was spent cleaning)!!!! The fire which we was told about DID through smoke into the lounge which was slight disappointing. The biggest problem which there cant be any excuses was the outside toilet had a broken seat which we informed the house keeper Sunday morning and NOTHING was done, with six adults and two children using one toilet was very trying at times. I look forward to hearing from you regarding the last point. regards Paul Shakespeare.

Guest from Theakston Beadale stayed at Our Cottage for 7 nights in July
We found this cottage absolutely ideal as e have been regular visitors to St Mawes form many years, (the older members of the party first came in the late 50s!!) We have rented two other properties close to Our Cottage but as one of them is no longer available we were keen to find a similar location. We found the cottage very comfortable and were particularly intrigued by the grotto like-outdoo loo. No, not grotty I hasten to add but very useful. Also the raised terrace was made use of as we happened to hit the really good spell of July weather. Hope to be able to rent the property again in 2014 and I will be getting in touch shortly to reserve it. Many thanks. Elizabeth McIntyre Ps Also we found the response to our call for some plumbing drama was dealt with very quickly and efficiently.

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 Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.
