Graham from Kingston Upon Thames stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in August
An excellent location with superb facilities makes this cottage one of the best we have ever stayed in . Despite some modernisation it retained bundles of character and charm that we love . Low ceilings in places meant some bumped heads and a new fridge is needed soon we think .

Guest from Guildford stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in August
We had a lovely week in seacliffe warren. The location is perfect, the front door practically opens on to tavern beach. The garden is fabulous for evening drinks/BBQ s. The decor is slightly dated and kitchen not very spacious, but this would not stop me booking again

Roger from Nottingham stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in June
A few problems with window fastenings. An excellent Location and lovely cottage and garden. Would stay again. Loved the Aga
Reply from leach familyThank you for your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our lovely cottage and garden, despite apparently a rainy week? We have done some major refurbishment on the house since the last review and the very ancient front windows and their fittings remain on our 'to do' list, to be done during vacant weeks.

Simon from Cheltenham stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in October
This is the 7th year we have stayed in St Mawes for the October half term and were delighted to have secured Seacliffe Warren to stay in but all in all it was a disappointment. It is by far the most expensive property we have stayed in (1300 for a week) but the accommodation just does not match up to it - showers are dribbly, beds are doubles (not kings) and we'd expected feather duvets etc but all felt a little tired. What it does have going for it is location, location, location but this comes at a cost in that everyone walking past peers into the sitting room.

Guest from Broadway stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 5 nights in September
Seacliffe Warren is a lovely comfortable cottage. It is in a great location with easy access to Tavern Beach. You can literally lie in bed and watch the yachts from 2 of the bedrooms. The aga makes it cosy for an Autumn stay. In parts it is a little tired but then it is very old. We would certainly come again, lovely stay.

Guest from Liphook stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in May
Had a great week at Seacliffe Warren, Very spacious, perfect location, with the added benefit of its own garage and parking area, the garden is a fantastic place to spend the sunny afternoons having a BBQ and watching the boats go past.

The perfect spot in St Mawes with a lovely view and a short walk to the harbour and shops. The cottage is comfortable without being luxurious and all needs are catered for.

Guest from Edwinstowe stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in August
The cottage was charming but is in need of some TLC, mainly the cleanliness. The lay out did not work too well for a large party i.e seating/dining. But in all, we had a lovely holiday and will be returning to Cornwall and will look at accommodation via Cornwall Cottages.

Guest from Nottingham stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in April
The village of St Mawes is beautiful and this cottage is the backdrop to most people's Selfies when they walk past! Add to that the fact that it is on the seafront overlooking a superb bay and you realise that this is a fantastic location for a holiday. The cottage is well equipped and sleeps 6 people very adequately. A really relaxing stay.

Guest from Broadway stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in March
A lovely week in a pretty cottage, well stocked and cosy with aga and real fire! Some minor Changes could make it even better; Downstairs shower dirty (hairs) Lack of good sized settee in front lounge, TV would also be better in front lounge rather than dining area as seating not comfortable in dining area ( to relax and watch TV) Desperately needs proper sized bath towels please! Disappointed with kitchen / layout - impossible to access garden/ fridge etc whilst someone is loading dishwasher and that area of the "kitchen" is more like a "utility" room than a kitchen! Having said that, we were impressed with the excellent range of utensils, crockery and dishes! Felt a bit like being in a fish-bowl - people staring in through windows! Glad we went April and not busy summer months!

Guest from Northampton stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in February
A very nice cottage to spend a few days in, but I was pleased there were only 2 of us. I was thinking of booking a further week in the summer for 7 including 3 children, but I am afraid that the kitchen arrangement is not good enough. The bed linen was too small for the two linked beds and the bedroom window sills were awash after heavy rain. The garden was lovely but not at all practical for a Labrador pup. The weather was appalling and we left a day early so that we were able to pack up the car at our leisure and when it wasn't raining. Having said all that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St Mawes and the dog loved the beach.

Guest from Cheltenham stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in February
this is an idyllic sea front cottage with wood burner and Aga and makes a great holiday for families My only comment to increase the comfort further would be that the sitting room armchairs are not particularly comfortable and quite small which is a shame as the woodburner is so cosy to sit in front of! the garden is lovely too and we took our dog and all enjoyed the stay

Guest from Scunthorpe stayed at Seacliffe Warren for 7 nights in September
First class holiday in a cottage that we never thought would be for renting, so many times we have admired this cottage on other holidays, now we have had one too. We gave out your details to other admirers too, so many people told us they loved 'our cottage', will be in contact again for another holiday soon.

Had a wonderful fortnight here in this dear cottage. The children had a fabulous time on the beaches and crabbing was a highlight - caught 35 one evening! Such fun. We're looking forward to next summer already. Very comfortable bed in front bedroom. Great food at The Idle Rocks and Tresanton, also at Wreckers at Charlestown and Hook in Truro.
Clare & Family, Surrey, Jul 2015
The most amazing week in St Mawes! We all love Cornwall and have very many fond memories going back generations. Seacliffe Warren is now a very firm favourite! Love this cottage, garden, location, aga - all fabulous! St Mawes is a dream, beaches, canoeing, fishing, G & Ts on the 'balcony' overlooking the beach - so many people took pictures of the cottage and looked in enviously. We all pretended it was ours!! Weather brilliant too! Be back next year. Thank you.
The Houstons, May 2015
Had a lovely and relaxing stay. Our dog particularly loved being close to the sea. House is very cosy with the fire and aga and very comfy beds!
Poppy, Lara & Andrew, Bucks, Jan 2015
Our third visit to Seacliffe Warren. Comfortable and welcoming as usual. Three generations and a dog had a lovely time, and look forward to returning next year.
The Arch & Clarksons Families, Nov 2014
A second wonderful holiday in Seacliffe Warren. The Tall Ships added a magnificent pageant right outside the front door! Hope to be back next year.
The Bamber-Powells, Aug 2014
Lovely location and wonderful views. Relaxing in garden was great.
McGinley, Holmes & Croucher, Aug 2014
Cosy, homely house and lovely beautiful place, garden blissful! Do hope to return. Many thanks.
The Price & Drysdale families, Jul 2014
Two beautiful weeks here, hope weather lasts for the next lucky people staying at Seacliffe Warren. We will be back!
John & Beth, Jun 2014
Another wonderful week here. Family, with our two grandchildren, all had a great time in this dear cottage. A lovely break.
C Carr-Locke, May 2014
We had a super time in a very special cottage, no doubt we shall be contacting you again in the future, your service is very good. We certainly could not fault any part of our holiday, perhaps the weather could have been a little better but hey! It Is October after all.
H Scutt, Oct 2013
Beautiful cottage in a remarkable setting. St Mawes is probably the best village resort in Cornwall.
Tony & Jan Graves, South Australia, Sep 2013
Seacliffe Warren unrivalled position, in 10 years this is the nicest cottage we have stayed in, warm cosy and comfortable. Exceptional weather - even as we leave the predicted rain didn't arrive! Lovely food everywhere, wonderful fish dishes of every variety. Thank you Seacliffe Warren and St Mawes.
The Bamber Powell Family, Sep 2013
What a wonderful holiday, the weather could not have been kinder to us. Never been to St Mawes before but will definitely be coming back. Cottage was perfect and the view from the top of the garden went fabulously with our wine and cheese!
The Heads & Welhams, Jul 2013
The weather has been mostly kind to us during our month here. Best of all was buying the local lobsters and cooking a feast on the BBQ, watching the boats sail by. We also bought the mussels from the King Harry Ferry which were superb. Thank you and hope to see you again.
P & A Lewis, Jun 2013
Beautiful cottage with spectacular views, amazing garden, wonderful walks - this has been a fabulous week in probably the nicest village in Cornwall. We have all said that we would like to return here.
Corbett, May 2013
What a fantastic cottage. We all had a relaxing chill out stay. Garden will probably look fantastic in summer. Unfortunately the weather was not great for us but did not spoil our stay as the log fire was fantastic to curl up in front of. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends.
The Parkins, Cambs, Apr 2013
Very comfortable house, especially as the weather was extremely cold. All helped by having the benefit of the wood burner. Three generations stayed comfortably and all fitted in okay.
The Multon family, Dorking, Apr 2013
Just to say that we had a lovely stay at Seacliffe Warren. Our bed was very comfortable (two singles zipped together) and the garden was beautiful. Although it was quite chilly outside we found the cottage cosy and very welcoming. Thank you again for making the arrangements and booking so easy. We hope to book through you again in the not too distant future!
S Spurr, Mar 2013
Fourth stay in St Mawes and a very comfortable one. Beautiful house and garden.
Su & Michael, Mar 2013
Return visitors over the last 20 years and stayed in various cottages and hotels. This has to be one of the prettiest cottages - everyone walking past seems to agree!

Amazing few days, beautiful cottage and setting despite the heavy rain. We will be back again soon hopefully in the summer and with more time.
Anon, Nov 2012
Lovely week, so glad it is dog friendly and warmed. Late one night we were watching the sea and we saw the strange phenomenon of luminescence happening - an amazing thing to see and very beautiful.
Anon, Oct 2012
Location of the cottage was idea for everyone whether it be pottering about the harbour, taking ferry trips and other activities. Going to sleep with the lapping waves was wonderful.
The Seeley Family , Oct 2012
Our annual trip to St Mawes was made even more enjoyable and special by staying here. Lovely to be so envied by passer-by's who wish they were holidaying in this beautiful place. We all look forward to coming back.
The Arch Family and Friends , Oct 2012
Beautiful location, lovely house. A privilege to stay here in one of the oldest houses in the village - fascinating history account in the file.
Visitors from Taunton, Oct 2012
What a dream to stay in such a beautiful house. So lovely to go to sleep listening to the sound of the waves. It was fun seeing so many people stop and admire the house and take photos. The house worked well for a three generation family holiday. The week went by far too quickly and I shall be sad to leave.
The Monk Family and Friends, Sep 2012
FABULOUS - Holiday, beaches, location, harbour facilities, area, pubs, rock pools, crabbing, fun, fun, fun. Bedrooms and living space wonderfully designed. Had a wonderful holiday with my lovely family in a lovely and beautifully presented chocolate box cottage.
The Gages and the McCauleys, Aug 2012
Brilliant garden for dogs. All in all one of the nicest places we have stayed in St Mawes.
The Gore and Bingham Families , Aug 2012
Wonderful location with spectacular views across the Bay. Seacliffe Warren is a cosy house and works well for our party of 6 plus one Jack Russell. Given we had some cold windy weather, the log burner was great to come back to after sailing. We will be back to St Mawes again.
C & D French, Jun 2012
Seacliffe Warren is a very welcoming house – you immediately relax as you step across the threshold. It has been extremely cosy when we had ‘to batten down the hatches’ in the storms at the end of the week – a week is too short!
Young Family, Jun 2012
This has been the most relaxing and restorative holiday. The cottage is beautiful and so comfortable...we do not wish to leave.
Ido & Kerny, May 2012
We have been visiting St Mawes for over 30 years and have always been fascinated by Seacliffe Warren. So it was an absolute delight to stay here. The house was absolutely perfect for us.
T & H Wordley, Mar 2012
What a wonderful cottage for a relaxed winter stay. Being able to stare at the sea through the windows while sitting by the log burning stove made even the wildest days a joy. The space is very flexible too and still feels very cosy for a couple. In January the village was very quiet, but just what we needed to recharge our batteries and get away from it all.
E Goodway, Jan 2012

On the sea front with diamond paned windows, thatched and covered in ivy, it must be one of the most photographed cottages in St Mawes. This beautiful old cottage with a large garden has been refurbished to a high standard and provides flexible and spacious accommodation in an excellent location for access to Tavern beach and the centre of St Mawes with all its facilities.

Key features of this unusual property are an open plan front room running the length of the house with a beautiful staircase in the middle, one side offers a cosy seating area with log burning stove, the other a dining and TV viewing area. In addition there is a separate TV room containing a sofa bed and chairs and a ground floor ‘wet room’ with under floor heating specifically adapted for guests with disabilities, with a disabled toilet, basin and seated shower, the shower being equally useful for those returning from the beach, sailing or walking.

The three front sea facing bedrooms allow one to lie in bed and take in the view. The first floor also offers a second shower room, a family bathroom and separate toilet. The large, prettily planted and lawned garden with sea views from the summer house provides separate seating areas for reading and sunbathing together with barbecue facilities. The garden also has step free access from the rear. Two parking spaces are available at the top of the lane above the house. We do recommend that if wheelchair users have any particular requirements that they check with us before booking to avoid any possible disappointment.

Please note there will be scaffolding at the front of the property from 25th September to the 10th October 2017, due to possible re-thatching works. This should not obscure any of the windows or access to the property. The work will take place Monday to Friday and will be extremely quiet. A discount is available for weeks commencing 22nd September and 29th September to reflect this.

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.
