Coppers is located about 300 yards from the St Mawes Harbour area up a short hill but with a quite dramatic grandstand view of the whole of St Mawes Bay and across to the Helford Estuary. The whole house is finished to very high standards and is laid out in reverse style to take account of the wonderful views. The large living/dining room is therefore located at first-floor level and has great views.

The title of this review says it all. Perfect for an early stay in St Mawes with my daughter and grandchildren.


We loved our stay here and hope to return soon. Coppers is in a quiet location but only minutes to walk down to the front. The window seat was wonderful for watching the world. Coppers is comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. The property was very clean and we enjoyed the personal touches in the welcome pack. A dryer would be useful as there is no way of drying clothes when the weather is bad. There was still building work going on opposite, but we did not get a lot of noise from it.

We had a lovely week here. The house is spotless, near the beach and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the views and terraces. Highly recommend.

We spent a lovely week in this house in September. It is beautifully designed and furnished and comfortable accommodation, with a nice sea view over St Mawes. We enjoyed a mix of eating out, staying in and going out for days, driving, walking and visiting nearby beaches. This is not a criticism of the cottage, but I would like to take this opportunity to comment on Cornwall's recycling system. We were quite shocked to learn that paper, glass, plastic were not separated in the home, but all rubbish thrown out together and supposedly sorted by the bin men. I think this is not a task for them and would not be done properly. It also encourages people to think of all we throw out, as just rubbish. In most other counties.like ours, the householder separates recycling from rubbish. I would be grateful if you could pass on these comments to the Local Authority.

We had a very comfortable stay. The house was in good condition but the outside furniture is getting a bit old and could do with being updated. The shower in the master bedroom could do with modernising as well but it is all in good working order. We would go back and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Coppers .

Rory Bruce

St mawes was an excellent location for a family holiday and the view from the living room of the house down to the harbour and out to see was spectacular

Jane Rintoul

We had a lovely stay at Coppers and the sun shone too! House is roomy with lots of outside space and beautiful views . The bonus of car parking and utility room was much appreciated . Lovely location and although steep climb to the house from St Mawes, there are easier routes to find ! Thoroughly recommend.

Nikki Buckler

We absolutely loved staying at Coppers wonderful view and perfect location for walking to the pubs and shops. Everything was well equipped despite the Covid-19 restrictions and we didn’t want for anything. Just a note and this didn’t affect our enjoyment but there is a new house being built behind Coppers and they do start work on site at 7.30 which if you’re in the back bedroom can be a little noisy.

Nick Speed

We very much enjoyed our stay at Coppers. The 'upside down accommodation' gives great sea views from the lounge/dining area. The spacious house is extremely well equipped. The main bedroom again has lovely views and opens on to the terrace where we ate much of the time. Although a little down at heel, the outside areas are private, quiet and open to the sun from morning to evening. The centre of the village is a short, but steep, walk away. A longer, but much more gradual route, can be taken. We really liked Coppers and look forward to returning.

Sylvia Turner

Coppers is a homely comfortable house with plenty of amenities.The views from the lounge are wonderful,I enjoyed sitting in the window seat watching boats large and small on the water.Good views from the balcony,however the garden furniture probably needs replacing.It was a short walk down to St.Mawes and all it’s amenities.It would be useful to have some extra black refuse sacks as we only had one for our rubbish.Age range in our party was 12years to 70years and we all enjoyed our holiday and want to return again next year to Coppers.

Russell Barley

We stayed for 3 nights at Coppers, and really enjoyed the house. It was clean, nicely decorated and warm. Everything we needed was there. The views out over the harbour are lovely, and the short 2 minute walk down into the harbour, shops, bars and cafe's was no problem. My only recommendation is that you get a new mattress for the master bedroom. It was not the most comfy mattress I have slept on, but apart from that, we loved the place and would definitely stay there again.

Gary Thompson

We loved our stay at Coppers. The location in St Mawes gives stunning views out over the Falmouth estuary and the house, with the living space set on the top floor maximises this. The area is quiet, set 300m above the sea front but not suitable for anyone who would struggle with a steep hill in and out of the village. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Michael Macgillivray

house comfortable,as always,but see comments above. also the terrace is badly in need of clean/refurb of outside furniture


We have a break in St Mawes most years and always stay at Coppers. The house is a great holiday base and has everything we need being well equipped and cosy no matter what time of the year we visit. We have spent 10 days there recently and were pleasantly surprised to find that the house (Coppers) has had several further enhancements - a refurbished kitchen, new carpet and feature fire in the lounge and extensive redecoration throughout. Of course many things have not changed. The view from the lounge across the Bay remains fantastic and you need to be careful that your holiday doesn't slip away while watching all the action out at sea, and the convenience of the St Mawes restaurants, pubs and ferry service make the long journey to Coppers so worthwhile. We'll be back again soon.

Michael Sharpe

We have stayed at Coppers several times before and we always enjoy it. New wardrobe in the main bedroom is a useful improvement. Could do with a few more mugs - or maybe we just drink a lot of tea! Building work ongoing next door but it didn't bother us (and provided some interesting entertainment!)

The house is nicely located up from the busy street of St Mawes. Perfect to access the beaches and the shops and pubs. The house is a nice size with plenty of room for us to stay in. The disappointment started when we opened the door and the smell of damp and unusedness hit us. Each of the rooms had a smell of damp. The children started in the down stairs bedroom but the damp smell was overpowering so moved up to the upstairs bedroom. The main bedroom was ok. Nice size with an en suite and a good shower, but dated. Poly cotton sheets and duvet covers not the best.i really feel sorry for those who have booked with lots of guest because the basement room is the worst for the smell and feel of damp. The kitchen is dated and has a tacky/ greasy feel on all the draws and cupboards. The cupboard doors were dirty and stained. The floor also had a sticky feel. Really disappointed on the first morning when I went to use the grill to cook our breakfast only to find a dirty unwashed grill pan. Most of the plates and bowls and cutlery had to go into the dishwasher as they were dirty or had a feeling of stuck on dirt. I even washed the jugs on the top shelf as they had a film of grease and dirty marks on them where they had sat untouched for a while. The whole property needed a reprint as there was dirty handprints right through the property on all the walls. Most was to be found around the table area, and the stairs, kitchen and bedrooms walls were also marked. I have taken pictures. Surprising at the start of the holiday season and not the end!! The carpets in the main living area was very soiled. There was stain after stain. I feel this property is let down by the lack of cleanliness as it could be a great holiday destination. The damp seriously needs to be addressed. disappointed in Coppers. Too high price for a dirty smelly house. We won't be back.

A beautiful house in the heart of St Mawes, fantastic sea views and ideal location for walking coastal paths. Coppers was very comfortable, clean, warm and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday.

Sarah Cross

Coppers is a large house with lots of space, superbly furnished and equipped with fantastic views of the sea and village. It worked out really well having the separate room under the house with it's own bathroom, as my parents stayed there and were not disturbed by my young children making lots of noise early in the morning. So I would really recommend the place for large or extended families. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. There was everything and more that you would need on a holiday, including an extra fridge and large freezer in the garage. My only recommendation would be to update the oven. There was Wifi and phone coverage in the house, which is not available in all the cottages or even widely across the village, so that was a real advantage for us. The cottage is up a short hill from the village, which although a bit steep, was quite manageable, especially if you took the path that comes past the back of the house. Just down the road and to the right is a short cut to the village park, which the kids absolutely loved, complete with a great adventure nature trail. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely stay in Coppers again.


We've stayed at Coppers for each of the past 10 years and enjoy the wonderful views from the house and also the convenience of allowing a 'car less' holiday based in St Mawes.

Joanna Parkin

The house was perfect for my elderly parents as they occupied the middle floor with the balcony and main bathroom facilities. The rest of our party used the top and lower floor bedrooms. The weather was beautiful and we didn't get in the car all week, we walked down to the harbour every day for our essential supplies and then ate all our meals outside on the balcony -the view is stunning. The house is very well equipped and comfortable. I would definitely book another stay.

Rob Harvey

Lovely property with a lovely view and right in the village. Great for a family or a group of friends. Once in village we did not need to use car much at all.

Tim Tatler

The property was found in excellent location and very clean state. The alarm was sounding on our arrival, which was rectified once the code was remembered. the whole experience was very good. The only negative would be that with all beds occupied, it maybe beneficial to have a shower in the bathroom, as having 4 other people walking through the main bedroom to have a shower was a bit of a pain for my elderly parents. Would definatly look to stay again.


The property was lovely, very well maintained, plenty of seating and crockery. The only issue we had was the family bathroom located on the ground floor which did not have a shower. I found having to borrow the other guests en suite in order to wash my hair very irritating! If this was addressed it would be 100% perfect. The location of the property was excellent. It was within very easy access to the shops and restaurants of St Mawes, but far enought away for it be very peaceful. The sun deck was wonderful


cottage clean and comfortable. sleeps 8 but only comfortable chairs in sitting room for 6 people ,so that was a problem . garden furniture in a state ,very dirty, old and piled on top of each other,(including a broken chair )two beds not made up and no towels provided but we contacted telephone number provided and someone came round immediately and made beds up and cleaned garden furniture.Bathroom downstairs only has bath and no shower .I think a shower would be more use. Hot tap in basin didn't work. Only provided with one bath towel per person and one hand towel between 4 people. kitchen well equipped and crockery all matching and clean . lovely views from upstairs windows .Beds very comfortable Nice location,short walk into village, positioned on a quiet road.

Geraldine Butler

The views are excellent with some very nice personal touches such as fresh flowers and locally sourced biscuits. We would definitely stay again if we came back to the area!


Firstly thank you very much for allowing us to stay at you place as well as accommodating the 3 infants. The location was excellent and the bay window is a lovely feature. St Mawes is a beautiful place. The flat is also spacious and quite homely. I found the the layout of the flat is a bit strange but that was not a problem. In my opinion there are just small touches required to make a good place great. For example the family bathroom is a bit dated and could have benefited from: - a shower head so you could have had two showers instead of one, which is very useful for groups of more than three people. - caddy's or cabinets for ease of use and neatness (the same applies to the shower room so that shower gel, etc are in easy reach) - A bar of soap would have also been useful in the family bathroom. - Some of the mattresses probably need to be replaced as they are a bit springy. I may be reluctant to recommend this place and will only consider staying again if I know that the above things are in place.

J Feltus

Four generations of our family have been staying at coppers since 2000 and every time we love it! Perfect location and cosy atmosphere with the best window seat!

Good location. Grubby condition, not clean above or below eyeline. All very tired. Kitchen utensils broken or not present. Two star property billed as 4 star.
