2 bedrooms

Perched above St Mawes harbour, with breath-taking sea views, Chapel Cottage is a perfect spot for exploring the area. A short, steep hill or a set of steps leads you down to the beaches and harbour. From here you can catch the ferry to Falmouth or over to Place and the dramatic St Anthony headland with its sandy beaches and wonderful walks. Just further up the hill you can walk the coast path along the Fal River to St Just in Roseland.

Sleeping up to four in a double and a twin bedroom, Chapel Cottage is a superb terraced cottage with a delightful small sitting area at the front looking out across the bay (perfect for your morning coffee) and an excellent large patio deck to the rear which gets the evening sun. There is also the option to use a round fold down table (seats up to 4) when eating inside.

The beamed sitting room is compact with a large comfy sofa, two easy chairs and a small rectangular table. The beautiful Spanish terracotta floor has underfloor heating. The modern kitchen has painted units, modern Neff appliances, a blue Smeg fridge and white stone work surfaces.

The master bedroom, with a 5ft super comfy bed, looks right out across the bay.

Ground Floor: Sitting room and kitchen.
First Floor: Master double bedroom, twin bedroom with access to rear patio deck and bathroom with over bath shower & WC. (Twin bedroom has blackout blinds over the rear door and window - not shown in the photos).
Exterior: Front bench seating. Rear deck with garden furniture.

This is a lovely cottage with fabulous views. The location is great - just a very short (although quite steep) walk down to the harbour. Minor niggles were it’s a tight spot for unloading and the hob was a bit of a pain to use - seems to have a built in timer that we couldn’t turn off! Otherwise it was a lovely place. The twin room is a bit of a tight squeeze but the double room was lovely, especially the view from the window seat. We would definitely go back to this cottage.

The cottage was extremely clean & we had everything that we needed. It is quite small for 4 adults & the stairs are fairly steep but after all it is an old cottage. Luckily we had gorgeous weather & we were able to spill out into the outside areas. The bed arrangement in the 2nd bedroom is a little awkward for elderly parents but fine for children. All in all a wonderful place to stay for a weeks holiday. A fantastic fresh fish stall on the harbour & well stocked butcher nearby.

Beautiful cottage in a fab location but the cottage had not followed the booking websites Covid 19 rules which was very disappointing and to be honest created a frustration and disappointment for us. Normally we never want to leave St Mawes but this time it was sadly very different. The cottage and location is super.

Rachel Jensen

We had a wonderful August stay at Chapel Cottage. The location is fabulous and only a short walk to the seafront. The views from the bedroom and sitting room were breathtaking. We enjoyed several evenings sitting out the front of the cottage enjoying the view. We found the cottage to be in excellent condition, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is perfect too. We hired a boat, did a fishing trip and found some wonderful beaches and coves for the children to explore. We would book again without hesitation.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location above the sailing club in St Mawes. There were issues however with the electrics and the boiler, which meant that there was no hot water on 3 of the 7 days we stayed, and we had to boil kettles in order to have even a shallow bath. The owners tried their very best to secure plumbers and electricians to resolve the problems. Ultimately the verdict was that a new immersion heater was required. We were disappointed not to be offered even a small Refund for the inconvenience caused. Otherwise, a great place to stay!

Jane Barnes

Great cottage, very clean and welcoming. Amazing location with fantastic walks straight from the door without needing to get in the car.

Nigel Stafford

Loved the cottage for its views and the fact that it was so quiet yet very easy to get down to the village centre. I would certainly stay there again if available when we come down.

After careful review and having booked properties in previous years with Cornwalls Cottages, I thought i would try a new one this year. I was not disappointed ! Chapel Cottage although small was immaculately presented, very cosy and with a great view of St Mawes waters. Cannot find fault, only small things..no microwave and TV was a bit small but that's being 'picky' i think ! Will book again and well done Cornwall Cottages again.

Charmian Doherty

The cottage is so cosy and comfy; we loved it. Lovely decor throughout and underfloor heating keeps it toasty. We cooked breakfasts and dinners and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Used the washer/dryer too which proved very handy one day. Cottage was warm enough but we lit the woodburner every night because we like it. Used the TV, DVD player and radio and all were excellent. Main bed is firm and comfy, pillows are feather (didn't use the small bedroom) and bathroom is great! It's a steep but very short walk to the seafront/shops. Excellent butcher, which sells cheese, eggs, veg and deli stuff too, and the Victory pub is literally a stone's throw and does a lovely Sunday roast. Fish kiosk was closed when we were there so went to Curgurrell Farm, as recommended by the owner in the welcome folder. Fudge & Moore sells lovely gifts, and The Square Gallery has lovely local art and crafts. Absolutely loved it, thank you!

Diane Bennett

Charmingly decorated, comfotable cottage. All need to unwind and relax. Great views. Extremely helpful Housekeeper. Hoping to return soon. Only 'annoyance' why why why do I have to pay extra for towels ?

Simon Morley

The location was fantastic, just a short walk to the harbour, the cottage itself has been decorated and equipped to a high standard and the views from the doorstep are breathtaking. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place for a break at any time of year

My son and I really enjoyed our stay in Chapel Cottage St Mawes. The only very slight problem was that there was not a hand rail on the left hand side going upstairs - I feel this is really a necessity as there is not really a proper handrail on the right, it is impossible to grab hold of it. A larger television would also be great as I found the very small screen a little difficult to see. It would also be a good idea if Cornwalls Cottages informed clients that they will need £30 in £1 or £2 coins for the weeks stay at the large car park near the harbour as apparently the card machine, we were informed, never works! and the Information Centre is usually closed.

I was staying in Chapell cottage over a long weekend for a wedding. The cottage had everything we needed and was nicely designed. A lot of thought has gone into the cottage. The beds are extremely comfortable with nice linen. It is also in a great location, with all the amenities of St Mawes on ones door step. My only critique is that the blinds in the bedrooms are quite thin so we got woken up very early with the sun. Amanda the housekeeper was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would definitely recommend.
