Simon from Bristol stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in August
Pennant has a fantastic view over St Mawes and has a "tucked away" feel even though it's very very close to the sea front and is on the top floor of the building. The flat was perfect for us with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open plan living area / kitchen. The decor is understated and calm and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is very high.

Bridget from Wigston Parva stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in July
Comfortable attractive appartment with great view. Two issues. The windows rattle noisily in the wind. The noisy people who sit outside the Victory pub well after closing time. The home owners around the pub should get together and put a stop to it. Overall though it was a very nice place.
Reply from Sheila GilesThank you for taking the time to comment on Pennant. We note your remarks. We are aware that with sash windows they sometimes rattle a little when very windy, that is why we have left wedges on all of the windowsills, for just such an occasion. Re noise from local pub: We are so lucky to have a lovely village-type pub fairly close by, serving great food and occasional take-aways. As you would expect, on a lovely summer evening sometimes people sit outside having their drinks and we have joined them on many occasions. We all feel very lucky in St Mawes to have great pubs and restaurants which add to the fun holiday feel of the area and support them as much as possible and hope that our visitors do the same. Pennant is very conveniently situated for the shops, beach, ferries, pubs and restaurants. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the flat. Thank you for taking the time to leave your review.

Karen from Swansea stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in June
We had a wonderful stay at Pennant. The apartment had everything we needed and more, and was a real "home from home". The beds were extremely comfortable and the apartment was accessible for my 86 year old mum who particularly enjoyed staying in the twin bedroom with en suite level access shower. The location being only a stone's throw from the harbour front and shops was ideal. We had no problem parking in the main car park, just up the road. The view from the apartment was absolutely stunning, particularly as we were blessed with fabulous weather. For your information, the shower screen over the bath, does not stay in place and therefore it is easy to spill water onto the floor whilst showering. Some attention is needed to this. We hope to return to Pennant soon.

Neil from Potters Bar stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in June
Enjoyed a great relaxing holiday. St Mawes is a really nice place to stay and The Pennant is right in the centre with everything to hand. The views from the flat are great and it's fantastic to just sit there and watch boats and ferries create a constantly changing picture. The apartment itself is ideal and has everything that you would need to enjoy a great holiday. Thoroughly recommended

Paul from Nashville stayed at Pennant for 4 nights in May
This was a well-appointed holiday cottage. It was one of the nicest ones we've stayed at. The location was perfect for sightseeing in Cornwall. The bedrooms were a tad bit small for four tall Americans, but the decor more that made up for it.

Nick from Exeter stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in March
Pennant was a great appartment and this was our 3rd visit there. It is in easy reach of the sea front, just a stone's throw from front door to the quay. Being the top appartment, it overlooks the roof tops to have lovely sea views. All you need in the kitchen to cater for 4 people for the week and the local coop, butcher and bakery are excellent, as well as having a good cafe and newsagent to hand. The appartment is comfortable and well equipped. If being fussy the wifi is slow (probably St Mawes rather than just the appt) and a couple of areas like behind bathroom door could be a bit cleaner, but we are really fussy and I still rate cleanliness good (but not excellent). Could have a long handled brush to make it easier to keep the kitchen area floor crumb-free more easily. But overall it was great and the views make up for any small niggles. And it is not damp like most of the older cottages in St Mawes! A good base to use to visit the area, get the ferry to Falmouth etc. We parked the car further up the hill (for free) and walked everywhere except a day trip to Truro, it was fab. Highly recommended.

Victoria from Conisbrough stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in October
In desperate need of a hit of St Mawes this year but with rather full diaries we booked Halloween in Pennant. The location was fantastic, close to the centre and spitting distance to the quayside but on a quiet, rarely used road (we still don't know how the bin lorry managed it!). The views from the flat were amazing, always lots to look at. The flat itself was immaculate, beautifully presented. Comfortable beds and chairs, well equipped kitchen and two great bathrooms. One even had a shower my 6'5" husband could comfortably use. There was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, 2 hairdryers (!) and the bedding was lovely. The flat is in the 3rd floor but there is a good sized lift so getting luggage up there was fine. There are steps up to the front door so probably not ideal if you have problems with steps although not too many. No parking but not a problem in November although dropping off was a bit difficult as it can cause a mini traffic jam. The only comment I would make on improvements would be the lack of soap in the bathrooms and general cleaning solutions in the kitchen. Take your own dishwasher tablets. There was no welcome pack as such but you are only yards from the local Co-op and St Mawes bakery is superb.

Hayley from Liphook stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in August
We stayed in Pennant for a week in August and were really happy we chose to book here, the central location was perfect and the views from the living room were superb. It was well equipped, tastefully decorated and extremely light and bright which is something you don't tend to get with the period cottages in the area. We had a couple of problems with things that needed fixing but they were sorted out within hours which we were really impressed with. The only slight negatives were the bathrooms are starting to get a little tired and the carpet was quite marked but then I guess it was towards the end of the season. We visit St Mawes most years and would definitely book Pennant again, in fact we we would be disappointed if we couldn't stay there next time.

Pennant is a wonderful apartment with the most beautiful view. We never tired of standing at the window and looking out at the sea, boats and St Anthony's Lighthouse. The apartment was clean, crisp and stylish throughout. We had a fantastic fortnight and can't wait to return.

Guest from Old Coulsdon stayed at Pennant for 14 nights in July
A very comfortable flat. It would be useful to have a fan available as the main bedroom does get very hot in hot weather. Also there is a fire escape ladder provided in a box which is a good idea. However it doesn't appear to be useable from any of the windows as they all have safety bars across them which means looks as if it can't be mounted on the window ledges and even if it could it would then not be possible to climb through onto the ladder. Suggest the owners give some thought to this and set out specific instructions for its use at Pennant.

Isabel from Watford stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in January
The apartment is clean, well situated in St Mawes and has wonderful sea views from the sitting room and breakfast table. It was only two of us but it would be very comfortable for four. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a nearby co-op (small) co-op. It rained for most of our stay but the highlights were visiting Eden, Heligan gardens - which we highly reccomend (go for the combined ticket), Minack theatre and Godrevy coast for seal watching.

Lorraine from Glossop stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in August
We absolutely loved our trip to Pennant! We were a party of 4, myself and my husband, my Mum (I know, bless the husband taking his Mother in Law away) and our 10 year old son. From the moment we walked through the door we were all wandering around saying wow! Having recently house hunting we were rather worried that the pictures online would be like estate agents photos & rather flattering. We needn't have worried! It was perfect and more than big enough for the 4 of us (including 10 year old strops / space for naps) and I can confirm it is every bit as big in real life as it looks in the pictures. One evening we had 6 for dinner - the flat was more than big enough, and very comfortable for all. The general decor of the whole place was lovely, quite seaside and beachy. The finish on the flat was fantastic - pretty much everything we needed had been thought of, and all the fittings were of a high standard (even my famously picky mother was endlessly impressed). We have friends who live in St Mawes (part of our reason for visiting) who popped up regularly and each time remarked how lovely it would be to live in Pennant (they live up the large hill behind the flat - christened heart attack hill by us). My absolute favourite thing about the flat was the view - sitting with a morning cup of tea gazing at the comings and goings of the harbour could have become quite a hobby for us - and the binoculars thoughtfully provided with the flat made boat watching even easier. St Mawes it's self was endlessly endearing - from the children jumping off the harbour wall to the delicious fresh croissants from the wee bakery on the harbour the whole place was perfection. We left a few times to go on the tourist trail - but I can't say anywhere was as lovely. Highly recommended.

Lovely flat - great views, nicely done up inside, very close to shops / pubs / restaurants but pretty quiet at the same time. Only downside is difficulties unloading / loading given the narrow road and no parking outside - not much that can be done about that though!

Guest from Blandford Forum stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in July
Pennant is spotless, fantastic views and well stocked with all you might need. We were incredibly impressed with this gem of a flat when we first arrived. We have never stayed at this end of St Mawes before but we son realised the downside - being so close to the pubs and bars. We had three nights of disturbed sleep because of appalling rowdiness outside The Victory pub which went on well after 11pm (including what appeared to be a stag do). The twin room at Pennant (the one children sleep in) sadly gets the worst of this noise. As the weather was hot we had to have windows open. Such a shame and nothing the owners can do about it. However they might be able to do something about the water that poors onto the window sills in the main bedroom when it rains hard. We had a fourth disturbed night from the racket of what we thought was a blocked overflow. It appears there is no guttering above, the flat being set into the roof. The noise was deafening, even with ear plugs. We loved Pennant, and if it were not for the noise we would not hesitate to stay again. Sadly sleep deprivation is the last thing you need when you need a holiday! If you sleep through anything or don't have small children, we would heartily recommend.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Pennant this June. The flat was very clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. The amenities were very good, great shower and bathroom, comfortable bed, lovely sea views and airy lounge/kitchen. The décor was to a high standard too. Although the flat was in a very central position, it was away from the hustle and bustle and a quiet location. I would stay here again.

Guest from London stayed at Pennant for 3 nights in May
Pennant is a well located two bedroom flat in St Mawes in the second "row" behind the harbour. Being the top floor it has great views of 180 degrees of the sea so you feel like you are definitely in Cornwall. Advantages- very comfortable beds with nice linens. Good decor palette in the bedrooms and living rooms/ kitchen. A lift which is great when you are carrying bags and shopping. Location which is walking distance from Hotel Tresanton, idle rocks and many other restaurants and pubs. Lots of hot water. Wifi (Ok). Small DVD collection for wet days. Disadvantage- not being able to park near the house and having to pay and display each time we came back was a bit of a palaver but this is the price you pay for being in a beautiful fishing village with narrow street. Master bedroom does not have en suite and bathroom was slightly uninviting. Not sure if this was decor, lighting or just that it was cold as towel rail hadn't been fixed and that was only source of heating and weather was unseasonably chilly (May BH). No way to make decent coffee (no machine, cafetière, percolator, filter cup) ..if I'd have known I'd have brought my own and I missed it! No Hoover to clean up crumbs. Window frames inside house need redecorating. Booking company helpful. Owner helpful but property management company rather surly (we hadn't been given towels for three people and I'd asked for that to be rectified. The lady was rather aggressive and defensive saying she had only been told two people etc. That was not my problem as we had it confirmed as three people but she made heavy weather of it to the extent that I wished we hadn't asked). I'd recommend the flat especially out of summer months as heating works well when you have switched it on and it has taken time to warm up. There is no outside space which might be an issue for some in better weather. We liked the location and views and slept very well. I'd also recommend the letting agents.
Reply from OwnerI note all Mrs Bright's comments and constructive criticism is always useful. A cafetiere has been bought. The twin bedded room has an en-suite, the attractive bathroom is 2 steps from bedroom. A new element has been fitted to the towel rail (things break in any home and have to be repaired). There is a dustpan and brush for sweeping up crumbs, we do not expect our guests to hoover, we employ cleaners to carry out this job each week. Outside space - none is advertised. Mrs Bright went on to say in the Visitors book "thank you for creating such a comfortable flat to use as a base. The beds are excellent. Good food on doorstep." Since Mrs Bright's visit we have had 2 further entries in the visitor's book praising the flat and hoping to return.

Pennant was an absolute pleasure to stay in. The décor is well chosen, the fixtures & fittings are good quality & the view is a real treat. Loading & off loading the car is a bit awkward, the stairs are numerous & the lift is slow, but the flat is sited in almost the centre of the town. There were one or two small faults, but we will certainly be back to enjoy the views & the ambiance of Pennant again.

Guest from Dronfield stayed at Pennant for 7 nights in August
We had a wonderful week at St Mawes, south of Truro on The Roseland in the gorgeous two bedroom top floor apartment 'Pennant', which overlooks the Fal estuary. The apartment is very well appointed and it was a delight to be able to sit gazing at the beautiful views of St Mawes and the estuary. Time was spent taking in a few local walks and beaches and our favourite other place is Portscatho, which together withd the Porthcurno beach, home to the famous 'Hidden Hut' for refreshments, snacks or food. The ferry to Falmouth was enjoyed by all four of us and our six year old Fliss is now well established at crabbing, having spent much time on the pier in St Mawes catching and then racing them down the jetty. We fell in love with St Mawes after our first visit last year and the position of the apartment was absolutely ideal. We will definitely be intending to return, maybe for two weeks next time??

The apartment was in excellent condition and in an ideal location with panoramic views over the harbour. The lift was so slow it felt like you were going back in time but it worked. Just about everything you needed was provided but the owners should consider buying a vacuum cleaner in order for visitors to help clean the place during their stay. We live in Thailand so unlikely to make a return visit but we would certainly recommend to friends that may consider Cornwall for a holiday

I had to unpack before I could wash my hands! A piece of guest soap would have been appreciated. A larger bath towel would be good, too. Otherwise we found it a very pleasant place to be. Loved the view and St Mawes. Thank you for an enjoyable break in spite of the fog!!
Reply from CornwallsCottages.co.uk on behalf of the OwnerMany thanks for taking the time to review your stay. We welcome your comments regarding hand soap and have instructed our housekeeper to provide from now on. So sorry we hadn't thought of this before.

Absolutely brilliant! The apartment was beautifully furnished and a joy to stay in. The only thing missing was a tea cosy! Would love to go back and would recommend it to anybody. Have had to complete 'service and staff' but there was neither as we were self catering. If it was for the booking service this was easy to do. Thank you.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pennant. Flat is well presented and layed out and has a superb view across the water. The flat is located on the top floor and there is a lift which was very handy for getting our luggage in and out! We were initialy worried about there being no parking. We left our car in the local car park a few minutes walk from the flat

Peter, Samantha, Ben & Ollie, Oxon, Aug 2013
We've thoroughly enjoyed our week at Pennant. The apartment is well equipped with everything we needed and very homely.
The Davies Family, Leics, Aug 2013
Lovely apartment - fabulous views. Our first visit to St Mawes - a great success.
The Barbers, Berkshire, Aug 2013
We were here for a week and there's still lots we want to do. St Mawes Carnival was on all week plus the regatta, so we did the treasure hunt, entered the crabbing competition and watched the yachts racing. A lovely apartment with a view we never tired of.
Simon, Tessa & Charlotte, Bristol, Aug 2013
This is our second stay at Pennant and we hope to come back for more. The apartment works brilliantly for a young family and the views are superb! Sorry to leave! Also, we have had a week of amazing weather - how lucky!
Matthew, Lisa, Elwood & Arlo, Jul 2013
Very comfortable accommodation and very well equipped. This is our first holiday to St Mawes, such a beautiful place. I know we will be back. The apartment is in a super location and the views - well speak for themselves.
Helen, Bill & Olly, Jul 2013
A lovely apartment - beautifully decorated and thoughfully equipped. Love the location and we hope to return one day.
Deborah, Ian & Bert, Jul 2013
Fantastic stay again this year. All very well equipped in the apartment. Amazing views to paint. Come rain or shine this has to be one of my favourite places to stay and visit of all time. I will never tire of the view in a beautifully presented, comfortable holiday apartment.
L Giles, Jun 2013
Our holiday experience at Pennant through Cornwalls Cottages was one of our best ever. The booking was quick, easy and efficient and the property was superb. All too often self catering properties never match up to the photos and descriptions but Pennant did and we will certainly return and recommend it to our friends and family. The apartment was clean and exceptionally well equipped in a wonderful location with fabulous views and we have no complaints at all.
Mrs Blower, Jun 2013
Wonderful apartment, restful and comfortable. Views stunning! We took a trip on the ferry to Falmouth, bit cold but great trip. We will be back. Thank you!
The Grout Family, May 2013
Plenty of fresh air and boat trips/walks. Recommend the Hidden Hut for alfresco eating. Lovely apartment, highly recommended with excellent facilities. Didn't want to leave. (A room with a view for sure!).
Fee & Lisa, Liverpool, May 2013
Warm weather, lots of sailing, played tennis, walking. Good food and rest. What a delightful place to stay. We shall return.
Tim & Sheila, Apr 2013
Beautiful location, lovely decor. After our days out we really looked forward to returning to this flat. Will definitely recommend to others.
Gail & Richard, Leics, Apr 2013
We had a wonderful holiday in Pennant, beautiful, good facilities, will come back to it again. Excellent location.
Philip Ball, Nov 2012
What a fantastic apartment with views that are unforgettable. We bought a Mussel card which covered all ferry travel for the week and only used the car once - bliss! Took the ferry to and from Truro and some great walks. Can't wait to return.
Andrew, Emma & Orson, Bristol, Oct 2012
We have just returned from our holiday at Pennant. We have had a very enjoyable holiday. The apartment was lovely and the description on the website was a true representation of the very high standard we found on our arrival. Everything was beautifully clean, well presented and therefore very welcoming. We would not hesitate in booking a holiday with Cornwall Cottages in the future as we have been entirely satisfied with the service and standard of accommodation.
J Davies, Oct 2012
Beautiful apartment, fantastic views (even when it's raining!). We are all very reluctant to leave. St Mawes and surrounding area fabulous as ever. Glorious sun on the bay as I write this. Thank you.
Mallory, Lee & Ayesha, Glos, Aug 2012
Lovely apartment, great location and ever changing views. We particularly enjoyed "Fish & Trips", both for the mackerel fishing and hiring a boat for half a day.
Mike, Olive, Kealan & Orla, Cheshire, Aug 2012
Truly lovely apartment. Beautifully positioned. How wonderful to wake up to amazing views every day. We loved it here.
Jayne, Richard, Sophie & Harriet, West Midlands, Aug 2012
What a fantastic place to stay. Lovely views. Can't wait to come back.
Nick, Thomas & Chloe, Leics, Aug 2012
Fantastic position, great views and very comfortable apartment. Thanks!

Positioned right at the top of a recently refurbished attractive building just a few yards from the harbour with fantastic sea views, Pennant really is the perfect location for a holiday all year round. The owners have refurbished, equipped and decorated the apartment to the very highest of standards and the whole feel is luxurious, welcoming, comfortable and sophisticated.

All of the attractions of this beautiful old fishing village are within easy walking distance and we cannot recommend Pennant too highly.

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. 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, butcher and fresh fish is available for a kiosk on the quay.
