House looks 'tired' with chipped paintwork throughout. The stairs to the upstairs are very steep, this was not mentioned in the description and could pose problems for some people. We had to clean the stair rails, they were dirty and sticky. The downstairs shower rooms both smelt musty throughout our stay and one of the toilets flush button was broken. However, the sofas were comfortable in the sitting room and the heating worked well during a very windy and chilly spell. The kitchen was well equipped though there was a problem with the oven fan remaining on after the oven was turned off, which we notified the caretaker about. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable with good quality bed-linen and wonderful views. The garden is delightful, a good size with decking and terrace both with good views. Generally it was 'ok' but not up to the standard of the cottages we usually stay in. It is obviously a much appreciated holiday home from the comments in the Visitors book and we can see why. Now we know what to expect, we would consider staying there again for it's position etc. but it does need a little 'uplift'!
A lovely stay. Plenty of car parking, house was comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful well kept garden with fantastic views which we all enjoyed, especially our dogs. A lovely walk in to St Mawes but a challenge walking back up the hill for us oldies.
The cottage was found easily and fully accommodated our needs (the dog included). There was ample space and the cottage was cool even on warmer days. The location is great - a short (but steep) walk into town where you can access ferries for multiple trips around the local area. A fantastic circular walk from St Mawes to St Just is worth undertaking - with a coffee and homemade cake in St Mawes.
The house was great and very homely. All the facilities were in great order and the garden was really nice to relax in in the evening. Alot of care taken to provide a nice visit. Based on the house and the comfort, I would be pleased to stay there again. It was a very enjoyable trip with a wonderful place to stay.
Had a lovely stay at Brigids Patch the house was very well equipped and had everything we needed the garden was fantastic for the dog he loved it .
Lovely, practical house with a great garden and views in a beautiful setting close to St Mawes. Despite the weather being changeable we had a fantastic time and recommend this property highly.
Good accommodation excellent views. Lovely place to relax and enjoy Cornwall, home from home. One of the most well equipped cottages that we have stayed in.
We were really happy with all aspects of the property, especially its garden and location. The views were fabulous!
A lovely home with a fabulously stocked kitchen and a gorgeous garden. A very relaxing stay for our family.
We had a very enjoyable stay at the house. The views from the conservatory were lovely, and we enjoyed having our breakfast looking at the small boats moored in the harbour in the early morning light. The kitchen is well equipped and attached in the front is a newly added, bright dinning room with seating for eight people! We both liked this room and it was great when cooking to be able to carry the food on to the table straight off the cooker. The bedrooms were clean and bright and there is ample parking space. A coal fire was laid out for us when we arrived for our use and the house has central heating. We would certainly consider this house again. For anyone looking for a peace and quiet, to relax and chill out, you probably could not find a more suitable property. And with the nice views across a long garden you can loose yourself in a book or just watch the boats go by over a coffee. Bridget and Dennis Grange.
It was our first stay in st.mawes and it was very nice. The house itself is lovely with excellent views, all beds were very comfy and all the rooms were very clean. We thought the issue of the downstairs toilet might be issue but actually it was fine. I thought the location was further down when I originally booked it, so it was a very steep walk to get home from the main village which may not suit everyone. Not really any negatives though but they could do with somewhere to hang coats in the hallway and there is only comfy seating for 4 people in the lounge although it sleeps 6.
If with a family a loo upstairs for the two bedrooms would I think be an advantage as the stairs are a bit steep. Ground floor bed was not very comfortable. Nice place with good atmosphere and garden dog friendly.
We had a wonderful 2 weeks stay in a charming house - lovely quite area......................................................................................................
We loved our two weeks in this super cottage. It was comfortable and it provided all we could need. The garden is lovely - the children loved playing in the evening after a busy day on the beach. There is ample parking too. Thanks!
We had a great time in St Mawes at Brigid's Patch. It is a lovely house with a beautiful garden which the children loved playing in, in the evening.
This was our third visit to Brigid's Patch,it fulfilled the criteria we have;dog friendly,car parking space and enclosed garden.The property is cleaned to a high standard,is well equipped with white goods which are new and have the necessary leaflets on how they work,some properties are lacking in these. We love the area and consider Brigid's Patch is an ideal place to stop for us.
Location is quite remote so excellent if you want to get away from it all. Beautiful views but not suitable for anyone with animal allergies.
Lovely garden plenty of parking space clean and spacios inside and very well equipped with all we needed without being cluttered. We love st Mawes. Very happy time.
The cottage had everything we wanted: nice harbor view, plenty of parking and an easy walk into town. All appliances including fireplace worked just fine. The one time we needed the housekeeper's assistance she was at the cottage within 30 minutes. The caterer that Cornwall Cottages recommended was fantastic.
The stairs were very steep and also had a 90 degree turn which narrows the tread.There was only a part balustrade on one side to hold onto.As a retired schools Heath & Safety Officer I would say that in its present state the property is not safe,certainly for elderly people and young children. You need to have a hand rail fitted to the wall on the left side for the full length of the stairs ( looking up on the left side.)The side with the part balustrade also needs a hand rail extension. A notice needs to be displayed near the stairs advising there is a hazard and care is needed. If there was an accident the owners could be judged as responsible and may have problems with insurance.
Lovely house beautiful views needs a bit of tlc down stairs bedroom needs some attention would recommend it family and friends the cleaner was lovely and very helpful
Nice location, see view, nice garden We 3 couples enjoyed very much... We cooked, had drinks, had some good time near in beach.. We certainly recommend this place....
We had a lovely stay at Brigids Patch, the cottage is in a stunning location with beautiful sea views, the cottage itself is very cosy and beautifully presented with St Mawes Village being only a short walk away. The gardens are also beautifully and immaculately cared for which our American Akita Phoenix thoroughly enjoyed, the only issue that we had during the week was that Phoenix almost escaped from the rear corner of the garden, we used a beach wind break to temporarily secure the garden, a better fence would be recommended to make the cottage truly dog friendly. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone.
We have had a lovely two weeks in a comfortable and well-appointed house. It was clean and warm and the facilities were excellent. We will come back!
We enjoyed our holiday at Brigids Patch: From our point of view the position was excellent, plenty of room to park the car and good access from the road and being on the flat meant that the clutch didn't suffer as much as other holidays in Cornwall.The fact that the key was on the premises was also an added bonus as were the explitit details of how to reach the property. The welcome pack was also good no wondering how equipment worked! We had 2 dogs with us and the garden was enclosed although we were worried about the smaller one getting through the gate and blocked of the front garden using garden chairs of which there were plenty. We played Scrabble first time for many years and would put in a plea for new box of Dominoes. It didn't bother us but I can see that the stairs are a bit steep and also that there is no upstairs bathroom although I can see why! Perhaps I should finish by saying we are thinking of making a return visit next year.
We had a wonderful stay the house was clean a d welcoming on our arrival with beds immaculately made up and plenty of towels, a comfortable house in lovely location we would certainly return. May I suggest some comfortable lounger type chairs for the garden and a bit more storage in the shape of a larger chest of drawers in the bedrooms, these are I know minor things but thought you might like to know. Thank you for the opportunity of being able to use this comfy house.
A very clean and comfortable property. If you want a property with great character and modern facilities I would highly recommend. Heating and hot water system is first class. We loved the summer room and its great views overlooking St Mawes estuary. Six of us stayed and the down stairs space suited us well as we were not on top of each other.
The location of the house is wonderful as are the views. For the price paid house could do with some t.l.c. and cleaning in the corners! Very comfortable beds. Kitchen well equipped but cupboards and utensil drawers need sorting. Found very old beyond mouldy chocolate cake in a container in kitchen cupboard! Can't have been checked for months. Lots of tables and chairs. Very steep and slightly alarming stairs leading down from bedrooms, not suitable for the elderly and should be noted on the description, made worse as all bathrooms and toilets on ground floor only, which should also be noted more clearly on the description. Lovely garden. Would recommend this property to others only for the location and views, which are wonderful.
We had an excellent week...the cottage was fantastic. The children loved it, especially the garden. Would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone considering staying there.
A wonderful stay in a lovely house with beautiful views. The family enjoyed the garden and patio too. The facilities were excellent and it was good to have useful parking space.
The location was amazing as is St Mawes. The property itself feels tired and dated and could do with modernising and a deep clean as there is a lingering smell of damp/mould/dust.
The house is just beautiful and is cosy but with plenty of space for the 5 of us and our dogs. Everything we could need was provided. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. The gardens and views fantastic. Bigds patch sets the bar in holiday homes. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Many thanks
Enjoyed our few days in the cottage with one or two comments: No folder of information was left out for us, we had to look for it and found it in the desk in sitting room. No 'basket of coal' as detailed in folder was left for us ( although a quick phone call to Maria rectified this ) We found the stairs steep but gradually got used to them! Sofa badly in need of attention as the right side has completely 'collapsed'. Carpet in sitting room tired and badly stained in places. Good points : warm and cosy, good range of kitchen utensils and very good cooker. Wonderful garden which must be great in the summer , fantastic views especially from upstairs, good private parking area too. As there were only two of us, Brigid's Patch may not be the most economical place to stay. I also question the £25 charge for each dog and wonder how this can be justified as it certainly does not cost an extra £75 ( in our case) to return the house to cleanliness, especially since two of my tiny dogs are non moulting !
