Mary from Wokingham stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in September
We enjoyed a very good holiday at St Mawes and the cottage was very conveniently placed so everything you needed was in easy reach. The decor and finishing touches were very thoughtful ( i.e. echos of the seaside) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and hope to return in the future.

Helen from Clevedon stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in August
Overall we loved our time at Thimble cottage and are considering booking again for next year. As people who book UK seaside houses every year, we would like to be completely honest and say we felt that the house probably needs a little 'sprucing' up as it felt a bit 'tired' in places. I noticed this more in the kitchen to be honest as that's where I spent quite a lot of time. We both suffer with poor back issues and found the sofas uncomfortable. For such a sweet little house it is extremely well equipped with everything you could need for your holiday and we appreciated touches like the beach chairs and beach toys etc. I have fed back today that there was a problem with the main bedroom ensuite shower which made a terrible noise when it had been running for a while and also a dripping down pipe outside the front door. Even though it doesn't have a big garden, I loved and appreciated the outside space and beautiful pots which were well cared for. Overall we would give this property a GOOD rating and with a bit more TLC and better sofas, it would get an Excellent from us.
Reply from Caroline JukesHello and many thanks for providing a review of your stay at Thimble Cottage. We are pleased that you appreciated how well equipped the cottage is and are thrilled to see that you have booked to stay again next year! We value all feedback as it gives us an opportunity to see Thimble Cottage through our guests eyes. We have discovered and hopefully rectified, a plumbing problem in the tank which we think was responsible for the dripping down pipe. The shower is working and runs well but as you say, becomes noisy after a while; we are looking into replacing this soon. Looking at the sofas we can see that some of the casters have ?collapsed? making the angle of the seat tilted and less comfortable. These are being replaced today which we hope will improve the overall comfort. Thankyou once again for your feedback and we hope you enjoy your stay at Thimble Cottage in 2019! Caroline & Martin Jukes.

This is the fourth year we have stayed at this cottage and we hope to return again next year. It is in a perfect location with beautiful views across the water and within walking distance of a good number of places to eat. The cottage is well-equipped and nicely furnished/decorated. It is a perfect base for exploring the area.

Adrian from Loughborough stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in June
Thimble cottage is a lovely old cottage with views of the sea from the bedrooms you also get a glimpse of the sea from the little courtyard, cottage is in a central location & a short walk to the car park. The kitchen is small but very well equipped & the cottage has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Weather was very warm & sunny during our stay which may have highlighted some areas which looked & felt a little tired & could benefit from a extra clean or coat of paint.
Reply from Caroline JukesMany thanks for your review. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed the views and position of Thimble Cottage and appreciated the cottage?s facilities. We rely upon our guests feedback in order to maintain the high standards that are important to us and are disappointed to see that you were not entirely satisfied. We note your suggestion that the cottage might benefit from a coat of paint and it is our intention to decorate at the end of the season, in the autumn. We are particularly concerned however, to hear that in your opinion, the cottage would be improved with an ?extra clean? and wonder whether you would mind clarifying this for us. Living in Worcestershire, we rely upon Roseland Synergy, our house keepers who organise and manage the change overs and cleaning at Thimble Cottage. If you are able to be specific, we can take this up them and ensure that any cleanliness issues are rectified immediately. Thankyou, once again, for taking the time to provide your feedback.

Janette from Banbury stayed at Thimble Cottage for 4 nights in January
Thimble Cottage is a lovely seaside themed cottage, beautifully appointed & well equipped. It's situated in the middle of St Mawes within a stone's throw of the sea. We had a fab long January weekend there, warm & toasty with the 2 log burners. No big negatives, only 2 things you need to be aware of: 1) the twin bedroom has no wardrobe or drawers so you need to live out of your bag which has to go on the deep window ledge as there is no floor space! 2) the path from the cottage leads straight onto the road , no pavement, which could be busy in Summer. Difficult with toddlers. Cars need to be parked in the village so budget for parking fees. A lot of thought and love has gone into the restoration of this old building and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Thimble Cottage is brilliantly situated, very close to Summer's beach and the village of St Mawes. It is nicely presented, fresh and clean with a nautical theme running throughout. We had a wonderful week exploring the peninsular.

Neil from St Albans stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in July
A great little cottage in a great location, right by the beach and town, but setback from the main road. St. Mawes has lots to see and do right on the doorstep. The castle, kayaking, ferries to Falmouth, Place and others. The weather was mixed, as it always seems to be in Cornwall and Devon. The dishwasher packed up, repair was not until the following week. But all in all a great holiday and we would return again.
Reply from Caroline Jukes, Thimble Cottage owner.Many thanks for your review and I'm very pleased to hear that you would return to Thimble Cottage! Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by the breakdown of the dishwasher;this is being dealt with and will be fixed this week. I've noted your scores for cleanliness and service and after emailing you directly for clarification, have discussed your comments with our housekeepers, Roseland Synergy, who respond quickly to any concerns, complaints or questions from clients:we encourage our guests to contact them immediately in the event of any issues so that problems can be rectified swiftly. Our guests comfort is of paramount importance to us and we thank you once again for your feedback.

Karen from Liverpool stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in May
Thimble Cottage provided a cosy welcoming and centrally located place to stay. The cottage provided all essentials and some extras the coffee, tea, milk etc were most welcome. The only slight minus were the night storage heaters, it could be a bit cool of an evening, there were log burners there but I didn't see anywhere to buy wood, though must admit didn't look very hard, never dealt with a log burner so didn't want the hassle. I did look at the information book for other things but didn't see anything about the wood burners though didn't look specifically for that so there may have been information about them. When staying in the Lake District last year the owners left a few bags of wood in the shed and a note of the charge per bag, so when leaving the keys could pay. I know at Thimble Cottage keys left in safe box, but when paying for cottage maybe visitors could request wood to be left and pay for it then, or info where it can be bought from and if no transport, if it can be delivered. Just a thought, though this info could already be in the info book at the cottage. Many thanks for a lovely stay. Karen and Brenda

Rachel from Dorking stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in April
My son and I stayed in Thimble Cottage for a week. It was small and perfect for the two of us. The location was ideal. A couple of seconds to cross the road and climb down the rocks to the sea, a two minute stroll to the coop. Our favourite part of every day was the evenings; St Mawes became peaceful and empty and we would walk to Summer Beach and enjoy the setting sun skimming the perfect stones across the waves which gently lapped the shore. We enjoyed using our falmussel cards to explore the area by boat and by bus. Thimble cottage was well kitted out too! We baked cookies and made our meals with ease, everything was clean and usable.

Stayed in Thimble Cottage over the 2016/2017 New Year celebrations for one week. The property has been skilfully and tastefully modernised without losing it caricature. The log burners make the cottage nice and cosy in the cold winters evenings. Cannot fault the Cottage we had the most enjoyable stay. Thank you for make this Cottage available for our stay.

If your looking for a cottage where there's lots to do in the daytime but you want a relaxing quiet retreat at night with a fabulous hotel opposite you and great food all within 150 yards this cottage is for you. The cottage has sea views from both bedrooms and the sea can be seen from the kitchen and all downstairs rooms. The cottage is lovingly decorated. We hope to come back soon.

We had a very comfortable stay. The cottage is thoughtfully and tastefully appointed. The only "niggle" is the lack of a parking space but the location does make up for this. It was our second stay and once again lived up to our expectations. The sun shining all week was the icing on the cake!

Its the second time I've stayed at Thimble Cottage in 3 months (i loved it that much!!). I've been coming to St Mawes for years and years but only recently discovered Thimble Cottage and i am so glad i did! Its beautiful renovated and gives a real cosy feeling. Its rather small but perfectly formed although those ~5ft7" and above will have to watch their heads! The location is perfect, and i was a huge fan of literally walking the 5 meters to Idle Rocks for cocktails and a gorgeous dinner. Cant wait for our next return!

Terence from Bolton stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in September
Thimble cottage is lovely and superbly located in the heart of St Mawes. It is well equipped and a generally high standard. There are two en-suite shower rooms which is great. The only real downside is the lack of a wardrobe in bedroom two, which isn't a problem for parents with children but is for four adults sharing.
Reply from Caroline Jukes, cottage owner.Hello and many thanks for your review of Thimble Cottage! We welcome your feedback and are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Our guests' comfort is very important to us and we continually strive to maintain as high a standard as possible. When we were renovating the cottage we had to decide how best to utilise the limited space in bedroom two and the choice was an ensuite bathroom or a wardrobe-the bathroom won! We hope that the deep shelves in bedroom two and the storage in the bathroom, will cater for the majority of peoples' needs; the hooks on the inside of the bedroom and bathroom doors provide a hanging facility and for 'overflow' there is a large wardrobe which hopefully the occupants of bedroom one would be willing to share!

Guest from Paulton stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in August
We stayed in Thimble Cottage at the beginning of August 2015 and had a great holiday. After two years of wet camping holidays we booked the cottage so we could actually have a holiday rather than an endurance event. The cottage certainly exceeded our expectations. On arrival we found the cottage clean, beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished and best of all well equipped. In addition to the usual kitchen equipment the cottage had items such as a picnic rug, Cornwall monopoly (loved by my 7 year old), Internet access, camping chairs and we used the provided high chair and travel cot for our 18 month old. The outdoor courtyard was perfect for keeping our wetsuits and inflatable canoe. The location of the cottage is fantastic enabling an almost car free holiday. It was a quick step across the road to launch the canoe or short stroll towards the habour for fish and chips or supplies from the St Mawes shops. For those wanting to visit with toddlers, please note that that stairs has an open side. The courtyard has a lockable gate so that little ones cannot wander into the road.

We really enjoyed our stay at Thimble Cottage. The cottage has been beautifully decorated and furnished and is very well equipped. The location is perfect, being close to the car park, harbour, pub and shops. The only slight criticism is that there is very little storage in the second bedroom (ie no wardrobe or chest of drawers) However, this would not deter us from returning. We would love to stay there again and hope to do so in the future.

Thimble Cottage was everything as portrayed on the website. It was a delight to step into such a characterful cottage, tastefully decorated & ideally situated in St Mawes. The standard of cleanliness was excellent & all our requirements thoughtfully catered for. To be able to sit a few feet from the water?s edge was idyllic. It was the perfect holiday cottage & we couldn?t fault it in any way, we simply loved it. Keep up the high standard. We will definitely return to Thimble Cottage.

As soon as we arrived at Thimble Cottage we knew we had booked into the perfect place for us. The cottage has been thoughtfully decorated and has such a warm and homely feel. St Mawes is already a very special place for us, but this is the first time we have stayed in a cottage there (usually we camp up at Trethem Mill, also highly recommended) and staying in Thimble Cottage, which we felt was so perfectly decorated to our sort of taste made it feel even more special. The log burner helps add to the cosy feel and the location is superb. Loved cooking breakfast with a sneak peak of the sea from the kichen window!

Guest from Buckingham stayed at Thimble Cottage for 7 nights in December
We stayed here for Christmas and the tiny cottage was excellently located for crisp walks along the beach or quay or ferry trips over to Falmouth. St Mawes is a very friendly village and has some lovely pubs and hotels as well as a few little shops too. The cottage is welcoming and cosy and the wood burners are a nice touch, especially in the winter (buy wood/smokeless fuel/kindling etc. locally). The kitchen is very small, but just so well planned and has everything you could need. I cooked several meals, including a full Christmas dinner. The beds are really comfortable and the decoration throughout is very contemporary. Although it has no parking on site, in the winter there is plenty of free parking nearby, although parking can be bought by the week in the high season. All in all a fantastic break for us and our two teenage daughters.

We really enjoyed our stay at Thimble Cottage, it was beautifully presented, however, we did feel that the cleaning company are letting the owners down for example hair in the bottom of the shower. one useful addition to the kitchen inventory would be some food tongs

Reply from Caroline JukesDear Mr. Poole, Many thanks for providing us with some feedback on Thimble Cottage. As you may be aware, we have only recently started letting the property and ensuring it is a positive experience for our guests is important to us. We wondered if you would be kind enough to clarify a couple of points: -we note that you rated cleanliness as a 4-in your opinion, what we can do to raise that to a 5? -you state that 'there is no service'. Our management company, Roseland Synergy are responsible for cleaning the property and take care of any guests emergencies for us and this is the service referred to in the review questionnaire. Did you have cause to contact Roseland Synergy and if so, would you be good enough to provide feedback on this for us please? We are grateful for all feedback provided as it helps us to achieve and maintain a high standard. Caroline & Martin Jukes, owners of Thimble Cottage.

Guest from Alloa stayed at Thimble Cottage for 14 nights in July
We feel very lucky to be one of the first groups of guests staying in gorgeous Thimble Cottage.It has been lovingly restored and refurbished recently into a beautiful little bolt hole by the sea.Much love and attention has clearly gone into furnishing the interior to a very high standard with lots of lovely little added touches.We have had the most fabulous holiday there, from our arrival by water taxi to our departure by RIB.Our entire holiday there was car free - recommend the Fal Mussel Card for getting around on the ferries. We visited Falmouth Marine Museum,Trelissick Gardens, walked to the church at St Just, relaxed in Lamorran House Gardens followed by Afternoon Tea at Tresanton.We took the Place Ferry followed by a coastal walk which took us to the little church and to the St Anthony Lighthouse.The children enjoyed crabbing, swimming in the sea and rock pooling.The Take Out at the Watch House provides delicious food and we also had a great meal at the Rising Sun.We had drinks and tapas at The St Mawes Hotel and cocktails at The Idle Rocks Hotel. The local bakery is to be recommended as is Cafe Chandlers for fresh croissants and pastries in the morning to eat in or take away back to cottage for breakfast - best coffee in the village at Chandlers! You can buy locally caught fresh seafood at the trailer on the quayside and there is a good local butcher.We had great away days to the Eden Project and St Ives too. Would holiday back at Thimble Cottage in an instant!

Customer testimonials

Thimble Cottage is right in the centre of St Mawes and has retained some beautiful character features and clever design touches. The house is tucked in behind the newly renovated Idle Rocks Hotel, a mere 100 metres away from the harbour and quay area with its shops, pubs and waterfront and within easy reach of the beaches. It is ideally placed for those who want to be in the centre of St Mawes. There are great views down over Summers Beach yet the cottage retains its privacy as it is set back from the road.

The cottage provides accommodation for up to 4 people. The ground floor is divided into an open plan living room, with multi fuel stove, and dining room, separated by the staircase to the first floor with a small but excellently equipped kitchen. The bedrooms on the first floor look down over the stunning crystal clear waters of St Mawes Bay and both of them benefit from ensuite shower rooms.

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.
