Guest from St. Albans stayed at Seagulls for 14 nights in August
Absolutely wonderful location and stunning views. We were able to get a mooring very easily as the boatyard 2 minutes away. The house itself is a no frills family holiday house but more than adequate for our two families. The kitchen was well equipped and had most things that we needed. Bathrooms seem to have all been updated fairly recently and hot water is available at all times. One thing to note is that although it's usually standard to provide bathroom towels they are not provided here ..it does note that in the info from the letting agents but I failed to see that and only took beach towels

Helen from Pershore stayed at Seagulls for 8 nights in May
This was a great house with plenty of space, perfect for our extended family boating holiday. Waking up to views across the Percuil estuary every morning we enjoyed the peace of the out of town location but with easy access to the facilities of St Mawes. The downstairs utility was really useful for storing boat clobber and dealing with the catch of the day! A brilliant family holiday house.

A perfect family house, very child friendly, well equipped, lovely garden. Lovely views of the river. It suited us well with lots of small children. We'd like to see some sun loungers for grandparents.

Vicky from Woking stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in August
We enjoyed a week at Seagulls in August. We were a party of six adults and three children, so the accommodation suited our requirements perfectly. There was plenty of space for us all to spread out without feeling like we were living on top of each other. The furniture and decor was a little tired but it was certainly comfortable. The best part had to be the view over the Percuil from the terrace and we enjoyed many a tranquil evening (and the odd early morning) watching the boats come and go. We enjoyed a BBQ on the terrace and there was ample seating for eating with the whole family outside. My only negative point on that front was there were no comfy outdoor chairs to relax in or a sunshade. The location's a little far from the harbour front but a short cut makes it relatively quick to reach the main centre of St Mawes (although a bit of a hike back as it is largely uphill). The quibbles are very minor, though, and we thought Seagulls very good value for money. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would certainly consider returning next year!

Perfect house and location for a family get together - ranging from Grandpa at 72 to youngest Grandchild aged 3 and 3/4. Amazing views, wonderful house and garden. We will definitely be coming back.

Terry from Leighton Buzzard stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in May
Wonderful location but property in need of a new kitchen, carpets and curtains and a lick of paint inside and out Much of the furniture although comfortable was well past its sellby date
Reply from Sarah LingI feel that this review is very unfair especially in respect of the comments regarding the kitchen, carpets and furniture. There is nothing wrong with the kitchen which is equipped with all modern appliances, the furniture, though not all brand new is, as they say, still comfortable and the carpets were renewed throughout the house in the autumn together with much of the interior decor including the two new bathrooms!

Guest from Upleadon stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in September
The house is in a lovely position, overlooking the river. With a public footpath accessible from the back garden, we were able to leave the car behind and explore the local area on foot and by ferry. We found the house warm and comfortable, if a little tired. The décor could do with a makeover, but you don't go on holiday to admire the curtains. We would certainly stay again.

Guest from Edgware stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in April
We were a group of 10 adults and we stayed over the Easter bank holiday weekend. Its a wonderful place to stay if you are planing to visit Cornwall. Large private garden with the sea & valley views is amazing. The interior is a bit old fashioned but is comfortable and there is nothing to complain about it. There are a lot of games to keep the kids busy. Definitely going to stay again if visiting the area and would recommend to friends.

Guest from Bovey Tracey stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in February
A very comfortable and spacious bungalow with gorgeous views and access to a pretty creek from the bottom of the garden. Lots of room for everyone. Sheltered, sunny position and easy walking distance to St Mawes. Dog friendly which is great and large boot room/utility which is useful. Lots of games and books and a sweet childrens' bunk room with toys. Highly recommended for families.

Guest from Wychbold stayed at Seagulls for 7 nights in October
We have just returned from a week at Seagulls. There were 6 adults, 3 children and 1 dog (Pointer) in our party. The house is beautifully situated in a quiet lane and its ample grounds run down to the creekside with access to a footpath. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The views across the creek are lovely and despite some foggy weather we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace some mornings. A problem with the shower was resolved efficiently. A lovely property which we would not hesitate to return to.

The house decor is very tired but that does not spoil the enjoyment of being there. Large bathroom wallpaper turning black in places. Some radiators need attention./bleeding. Kitchen well equipped but water jugs are needed. Great family house and wonderful view .

Customer testimonials

We have just returned home after a lovely week in St Mawes and excellent accommodation in "Seagulls".
M Parry, May 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we loved ‘Seagulls’. It is a lovely house with magnificent views, which we all fell in love with. The peacefulness and location really made our holiday. Accommodation at ‘Seagulls’ ticked all the boxes for us and was very comfortable..........We were especially appreciative that we were able to take our small dogs with us. It is such a relief for us to find such a property.
The Chynoweth Family, Sep 2010
We have just returned from our St Mawes holiday staying at “Seagulls” and want to let you know that it was just perfect for all the family whose ages ranged from 1 year to 80 years and various in between! The views are stunning and the location was ideal. We love St Mawes anyway and have holidayed there many times over the years and will do so again. In the mean time our memory of this holiday will linger for a long time.
Mr & Mrs Lewis, Sep 2010
Thank you for a lovely property to enjoy our holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the house is in an excellent position.
Mr Turtle, Jun 2010

Seagulls is an extensive house with delightful uninterrupted views over the Percuil River & Froe Creek in a quiet residential area of St Mawes. Only a few steps from Freshwater Boatyard, the property is ideal for those looking to get out on the water & is only a short walk to St Mawes harbour.

It is an absolutely superb location where you can really relax, unwind and just watch the boats go by! Located in a very quiet corner of St Mawes, Seagulls has the benefit of views across the river from a number of rooms. The terraced mature garden leads down to a riverside footpath which takes you along the foreshore to The Priory. The centre of the village with its pubs and shops is approximately a 10 minute walk away along various short cut paths or about 15 minutes walk along the beautiful seafront.

Please be aware that Seagulls is an older style property that might not have the level of fixtures and fittings as some of our other properties. However it does have the most fantastic position and views across the river. Please see all our photographs and our video tour for an accurate view of the property.

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.
