Katie from Cirencester stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in August
We loved our stay at Little Cottage! The cottage was very clean and tidy on arrival and the outside space very private. The board games were a welcome addition and the local literature to help us plan our stay. We loved the fact that we could pop to the bakery every morning for our breakfast and the butchers for our tea! The views from the front windows and courtyard were amazing, we loved watching the boats sailing in and out of the harbour! We would definitely recommend Little Cottage. Thank you

Susan from Farnham stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in July
Lovely house. All in very good condition with everything you need. The one negative was my partner is over 6 foot tall and was continually hitting his head on the low beams around the house, and in the kitchen he couldn't stand up straight. There is also a tricky exit from the front bedroom onto the stairs which doesn't feel safe. I think it would be useful to have a warning on the details.

Sven from Shaftesbury stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in May
Great views, good location, no parking however, but not really an issue as the cottage is in a quiet lane that allows you time to load and unload the car. The car park is 5 mins walk, 30 for a week's ticket. Headroom in the cottage is a bit restrictive at times if you are 6ft plus especially at the bottom of the stairs. Kitchen well equipped with quality kit.

Guest from Derby stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in May
Cottage was comfortable and well equipped. Tall people will need to be vigilant going up and down the stairs due to the low ceiling in the stair well, otherwise a short, swift bang to the head follows. In my opinion the cottage would be suited to either 2 adults or a small family. The sea view from the lounge and bedroom were really lovely and are the stand out attraction of the cottage. Surprised to find that there was no welcome pack? However a minor grumble for what was a pleasant stay.

Kevin from Chipping Norton stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in April
Fantastic cosy little cottage which was ideally placed in beautiful st Mawes. Really, really pleased with everything and didn't disappoint. View from garden was great, location in St Mawes was ideal, a stones throw from pubs, restaurants and cafe shops and ferry to Falmouth. House was extremely well kept and cosy and views were great from Garden and main bedroom. Highly recommend

Linda from Honiton stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in March
Location of cottage excellent, property very well equiped and as was stated on description. However on arrival, cushions smelt damp,. the fridge and some insides of kitchen drawers, and some utensils on worktop were very visibly dirty! Also having stayed in holiday cottages before, a small welcome pack or start kit for the fire i.e. kindling etc would have been appreciated. A torch is essential due to the cottage location and a few books on the local area would be a nice thing to relax with,as would a game or two.These are just our observations, we did have a very pleasant stay at lillle cottage, and we did strip the bed on the morning of our departure, which again we have not had to do before when renting holiday cottages.

Christopher from Birmingham stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in February
St Mawes is a great place to spend a week and Little Cottage is a great place to stay. Five minutes walk from the sea-front the two-bedroomed property is clean and comfortable. The cottage has been recently renovated and it looks modern - especially the kitchen. All mod cons with a dishwasher and washing machine + John Lewis crockery. Bedroom linen was The White Company so, once again, a very clean, modern feel. However, whilst modern, there's nothing clinical about the cottage - although there is central heating (with an ultra-modern thermostat to control the heat!!), with the log burner going we felt really cosy. There are gardens both at the front and rear - because the cottage is on a hill, the front garden overlooks the bay (and is raised from the road) and the rear one is enclosed and pretty sheltered: I sat out there on a mild day in February. Note that you also get a great view of the bay from the master bedroom. St Mawes is not a cheap place to stay but there are good meals and good meal deals to be had at The Victory Inn and The Rising Sun. More upmarket are the St Mawes Hotel (brasserie and bar), the Hotel Tresanton and the Idle Rocks Hotel, where we found an afternoon cream tea looking onto the water hard to beat.

Robert from Enfield stayed at Little Cottage for 6 nights in February
Hello, We stayed in this very charming cottage for the February mid-term week. This is a great cottage in an ideal location. The cottage was full of everything we needed and was very comfortable. The access was good and the pick up and hand over was very easy. A great place to stay if heading to St.Mawes. 5/5

Beverly from Wellingborough stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in September
Enjoyed a lovely week in the cottage with beautiful views down to the harbour. Ideal location (especially if you want to keep fit - the hills in St Mawes are steep!) and the wood burner makes it a cosy and comfortable place to be. My only note would be to those who prefer a more 'sturdy' pillow. The pillows provided are clean and absolutely fine, but I prefer more support and foam rather than feather (for allergies too). Everything we needed for a wonderful stay was provided and being able to sit outside in the sun trap of the garden was perfect. Along with the beautiful view, even if sat inside - bliss.

Guest from Keighley stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in August
Location was fantastic mainly due to the lovely view of the sea from the front garden, main bedroom and living room. We parked in the car park in st mawes and carried our luggage to the cottage as there's no parking and the roads are narrow but it wasn't a problem. It's just as nice if not nicer than on the photos suggest and the view out is the icing on the cake. Would stay again it was a really good location and one of the nicest holiday cottages we've stayed in.

Katy from South Cerney stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in August
Little Cottage was perfect for us and two children. It's position just slightly up from the harbour means that you have the convenience of being very close to everything but in a very quiet setting with amazing views of the harbour. You have this view from the front garden, the sitting room/kitchen and the main bedroom so you really get to make the most of it. The kitchen is very well equipped and the sofas and beds very comfortable. We loved it so much, e're looking to book again in the next couple of months!

Jane from Crick stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in June
Little Cottage has been beautifully decorated to welcome guests. Plenty of seaside charm to go with amazing views of the pretty village of St Mawes, sea and surrounding countryside. Many good pubs and restaurants to sample local food,especially fish. Delicious pasties,buns and bread sold by the harbour. Plenty to do and see in the area for all ages. Minack theatre well worth a visit. Trebah gardens are stunning. The coastal walk from St Mawes to St Just in Roseland lovely. Such a tranquil place. Take the ferry to Falmouth for a bit of shopping. And plenty more.... Back next year I hope.

Guest from Keighley stayed at Little Cottage for 7 nights in June
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Little Cottage. The cottage is well situated to enjoy the facilities of St Mawes, close to shops and transport links, and with fantastic ever changing sea views from the front windows. The outdoor seating areas are well presented and equipped. Indoor equipment and fittings are of a high standard. We only used one bedroom and found both bed and bedding fresh and comfortable. However, we would have appreciated a more thorough and careful approach to cleanliness, e.g. kitchen tiling, cupboard fronts, appliance fronts, dusty corners and surfaces, bath and toilet pedestal etc. as we did have to go round cleaning a few of these things up at the start of our holiday. If all this had been right, we would have felt that the accommodation was perfect and would certainly want to re-visit sometime.

This beautiful cottage is located on Chapel Terrace, up some steps behind the Victory Inn in St Mawes. It takes just a couple of minutes to reach the harbour, a few minutes longer to climb the steps back up. The elevated position provides the most wonderful views from the front garden. The open plan living room with raised kitchen diner to the rear provides a seaview and is beautifully presented having undergone a major refurbishment through the latter half of 2015. The patio garden to the front of the property is a sun trap with a glorious vista and the cottage benefits from a small private garden to the rear of the property.

St Mawes is simply an idyllic spot for a holiday. It is perfect for those who want to get out on the water or explore the stunning coastline or the Roseland Peninsula. There are two shingle beaches in St Mawes or some lovely sandy beaches on the St Anthony headland. Staying in St Mawes you would not need your car all week. Everything is within walking distance and the passenger ferries provide regular services around the estuary from the delightful harbour.

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.

Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.
