This cottage is homely, endearing and the owner thought of all the little things we may need - ironing board, cosy over the knee blankets, low lights, ice cubes, lovely mugs and crockery, non stick pans! and all the homely things which made it a joy. Beautiful bedroom, cushions, pictures and a well equipped kitchen. Beware the 30% incline climb- but worth it!! Any time the owner needs a house sitter we'll volunteer!
Small, clean and in a great location. Very easy to check in. The only criticism I could make was the lack of kitchen basics, like salt etc. I understand this was a reaction to covid but given the price of the cottage I think new salt, milk etc could be provided for each set of guests
Amazing views and such a great place to chill out - sit out the front and watch the world on the water go by. Lovely little cottage but the be warned the hill home is VERY steep but on the flip side good or burning calories from all the yummy Cornish treats !
Really nice cottage, in a great location, in a great part of the world, with stunning views. Would highly recommend.
A well appointed and decorated cottage in a great location close to the pub and other facilities. You need to be reasonably fit to climb the hill to the property but this is part of the attraction.
Cosy cottage with fantastic views. It is a steep climb from the harbour and vehicle access is limited but thats nothing new for St Mawes. The induction hob is unusual and takes getting used to when cooking. Heating may be an issue when you have a spring like we are now as there is no way to control the underfloor heating. However there is a log burner and an electric heater.
We had a very good break in this small but very pleasant cottage: there were three of us, and we all fitted in easily! The view from the admittedly tiny front terrace is beautiful, as it is from the sitting room and main bedroom. The bed in the main room was extremely comfortable and we slept well. Our daughter was in the twin room and was happy there too. Things were in good condition and clean. St Mawes is also a lovely village to be based in, the bakers on the quay is brilliant, and the walking in the local area is fantastic. We tended to eat in during the evenings because we were there when Covid rules required outdoor eating in pubs etc, and it was very easy to cook and wash up in the small but orderly kitchen. The owners were very helpful in enabling a change of arrival time and we greatly appreciated that, too.
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 its 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 couldnt 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.
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!
Great cottage, very clean and welcoming. Amazing location with fantastic walks straight from the door without needing to get in the car.
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.
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!
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 ?
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.
