With its elevated position overlooking Summers Beach and the Percuil River, views toward the St Anthony's Lighthouse and the Lizard, its extensive private gardens and delightful south facing terrace, Brigids Patch is one of the prime self catering holiday homes of St Mawes. It is an 8-10 minute walk down to the St Mawes harbour area with its good range of facilities including butcher, baker, chemist, Co-op convienience store, post office, pubs and a range of hotels. It is no more than a 2 minute walk to the famous Lamorran Gardens or 5 minutes to St Mawes Castle and views over the spectacular Carrick Roads.

Brigids Patch was completely refurbished during the winter of 2009 and is a wonderful 3 bedroom holiday home. It is a good sized house, ideal for families or small groups of friends, but not too large that a couple would feel uncomfortable staying here. The property is private and therefore offers a great retreat whilst being within walking distance of all the facilities of the village. With an open fireplace, double glazing and central heating, Brigids Patch is also a fine place to stay during the winter There are some fine walks to be had from the property. Of particular note is the walk to St Just in Roseland and its delightful church and cemetery. You can easily reach the start of the footpath from Brigids Patch which descends and joins the coastal path north for about 45 minutes to St Just Creek.

Ground Floor: The main entrance hall leads to the south facing living rooms with access onto the spacious terrace. The fully fitted kitchen is to one side with a dining room leading off. A double bedroom is located on the ground floor with ensuite shower & WC. The family shower room is also located on the ground floor.
First Floor: Two bedrooms: one main double room with hand basin and fantastic views over Summers Beach and the Percuil River with a further larger twin bedded room, also with hand basin, to the rear. Access to the first floor of this 1920s cottage is via a steep stair case with only a partial hand rail, due care and attention needs to be taken.
Exterior: There is a superb deck, patio & long south facing garden with outside furniture & a BBQ.

Facilities & Services

Had a wonderful time with family took the dog house was exactly what we were looking for good size garden and good views of lighthouse and boats

Yet another great stay through Cornwalls Cottages. Their communication is always personal and very thorough. We received lots of really useful information on places to visit and eat locally, but also info specific to our stay. Frankly I wouldn't book through anyone else for Cornwall visits. Brigids Place itself was perfect. We needed to stay in the area for a few nights and it was ideal. Very homely, some lovely period features, and tastefully decorated with a seaside theme that was just the right level. Would suit a family well, but not too big for a couple. We had everything we needed in the house. Parking was fantastic, loads of space and cars could be tucked away behind the garage out of sight. But the garden and the view out over the harbour at St Mawes were stunning. Lots of outside seating. Great for our dog too. Found the child gate which was great to ensure she stayed downstairs. Really loved our stay here and would definitely recommend Brigids Place to others.


Brigid's Patch is a comfortable house, rather higgeldy, piggeldy and generally clean and well equipped.The position is good with pleasant views. Outside, including garden, needs some attention. For the cost one expects more than just weekly cleaning to be done. The carpets are dirty. We only found out about the building works next door when we arrived. This is unacceptable for us as a family.

Andrew Ledger

A great hols , thank you St Mawes is where I was brought up. . Wonderful thanks so much for a great and much appreciated Holliday

Brian Devonshire

We enjoyed our stay at Brigids Patch. We appreciated the facilities and tasteful decor. Distance from the centre was a slight disadvantage.

Megan Lloyd

We absolutely loved our stay at Brigid’s Patch. The views are incredible, the spacious well tended garden is a haven and the house itself has everything you will need. Lots of home touches, handmade curtains, comfy beds and an open fire. Also perfectly clean and in a perfect location set above the gorgeous village of St Mawes. We very much hope to return.

Sharon Bradley

What a gem! Lovely cottage very clean, comfortable, homely and so well equipped. We stayed with our 2 dogs and just felt so relaxed for the whole stay. We will definitely be booking again.

Lisa Srotyr

We had a very pleasant stay in St Mawes. The cottage is within easy walking distance of the village which is lovely. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable. There is a lovely view of the sea from the garden and one of the bedrooms. There are great walks all around. Would highly recommend.

Judi Edwards

Spotlessly clean and very comfortable house with great facilities and very well equipped kitchen. We loved the patio and garden .... such a view! Being in short walking distance to the beaches, the town and great walks We had a lovely holiday

Sarah Tite

Very nice touch that we had a Christmas Tree and crackers. Very, very comfortable pillows, which I am going to buy! The view from the upstairs bedroom was beautiful. Just a short stroll from the centre of St Mawes, which is lovely. A walk to St Just church along the coast is a must. All in all a lovely few days.


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'!

Marilyn Gubbins

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.

Ed Macdonald

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.

David Croney

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 .

Simon Warren-Gash

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.

Maurice Clarke

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.

Denis Horlor

We were really happy with all aspects of the property, especially its garden and location. The views were fabulous!

Robin Stephenson

A lovely home with a fabulously stocked kitchen and a gorgeous garden. A very relaxing stay for our family.

Dennis Grange

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.

Lisa Leach

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.

Shirley Royston

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......................................................................................................

Carolyn Tristram

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!

Carolyn Tristram

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.

Susan Gillett

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.

Susan Koksal

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.

Sophie Henderson

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.

Douglas Miller

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.

Nigel Holmes

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.

Marjorie Cross

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

Nirmal Kurungat

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....

David Grey

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.

Robert Ford

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.

Laura Fenwick

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 !
