Corner cottage very clean. Nice crisp bedding & comfortable beds. Brilliant location. Minutes away from restaurants/shops/bars. Own parking space (which seems a rarity) in that area. Found the hill down to front quite steep (but we are in our 60s). Other than that we had a lovely holiday

Peter Afford

This was a great cottage to stay in, nicely restored and furnished, and handily close to the pub and the bakery and other necessities of life on holiday. The open fire was a pleasure, though a wood burner would be more efficient and less polluting. The score for value for money merely reflects the fact that we paid a lot of money for it, far more than for any previous Cornish cottage over new year's.

Anne Scarbrough

Our first time at Corner Cottage and it was just lovely. A very clean and well equipped cottage with plenty of everything we needed.

Belinda Lawrie

Corner Cottage was a delight from the start. It is in a great location and with an added bonus of parking spaces. On arrival the cottage was spotless with freshly cleaned windows. Having the enclosed porch was a godsend for wet coats and shoes, and an outside hosepipe for cleaning muddy shoes as well as a muddy dog. Once the weather dried up the washing line was just big enough to dry swimming stuff and wetsuits. All equipment was in good working order and we had everything we needed. There was good communication prior to arrival about a bird’s nest blocking the chimney, but there was no need for a fire in July anyway. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you very much to the owners, agents and housekeeper for giving us such a lovely first stay in St Mawes.

Nicola Smith

On arriving at the cottage the weather was wet and quite cool, there was post it notes on the mantel piece stating the fire could not be used, then a post it note on the radiator in the lounge stating it required repair. Nothing was emailed to us before arriving at the property, they left a very rusty electric oil radiator which quite frankly we were unsure it was safe to use. Due to the temperature not being very warm we sat on the sofa with a blanket around us we had in the car. Luckily the weather improved the week we were staying. A lot of dust on skirting boards, mirror dirty in lounge, the windows were filthy looking even worse when the sun was shining. The switch on the shower kept dropping off. We rented a 2 bedroom property on arriving the had not made up bedroom 2 and supplied no towels for this room. I have a rental property and we always have all beds made up. The patio garden area needed a good clean / sweep the bushes needed pruning looked very unkept.


Well equipped and comfortable this is a place we have stayed in before and would happily book again.

Peter Afford

This was a lovely cottage for out short stay in St Mawes, with lots of sunlight streaming in through the windows. The only problem was a birds nest in the chimney, apparently a very rare occurrence!

Grantley Gibbs

St Mawes is a lovely little village in south Cornwall, and perfect for exploring the county. i imagine in the summer this to be a very busy little place. Corner Cottage is ideally located within easy walking distance of the village amenities. Having somewhere to park the car is an added bonus. The cottage itself is very well equipped and spotlessly clean.

Anna Pemberton

We normally visit St Mawes at Easter - for obvious reasons this didn't happen this year! It was lovely to see the town and beautiful surroundings at a different time of the year. Corner Cottage was as delightful and welcoming as ever and we had a wonderful week of escapism consisting of beautiful walks, playing games and enjoying much-needed family time away from the rest of the world. Corner Cottage is a perfect place to stay and we would like to thank the owners and the amazing 'caretaker' for making everything possible during a difficult year.

Nicola Deas

Good position, had all you need for a week stay. Well equipped and great we could have our westie with us

Ashleigh Smart

We stayed at this cottage for four nights recently and found it to be well equipped and comfortable. We had a problem with the aerial as soon as we arrived and tried to resolve this ourselves but eventually decided to call the local contact who arrived promptly and arranged to order a new aerial. She also provided us with her own access to Netflix to ensure we could watch some TV if required. The owner also got in touch regarding this matter. As such, we rate the customer service provided by the housekeeper and owner as excellent. Benefits of this particular cottage is the location and the parking space - which is a rarity in St Mawes. We would definitely stay here again.

Veronica Clarke

Lovely cottage in great location.everything we needed for our stay and house has a cosy welcoming feel,lived in and comfortable.only one comment re light bulbs.reading lamp bulb gone as was the replacement so we had to buy our own!

Beth Pollock

This is a fantastic house - light, spacious, airy and sunny. It's located right in the middle of town so it's easy to walk everywhere to reach shops and restaurants. It IS a steep walk up the hill from the sea, but that's part of being in Cornwall. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you need. Highly recommend.

Doug Withington

We had a lovely 5 days in the Corner Cottage over half term...they had just had the kitchen redone which is very nice and the general comfort and cleanliness was top notch. We would definitely stay again and love St Mawes, which we have visited a few times before.

Louise Boden

The walk up the hill aside, a stay here is a great experience. My only issue was the sofas (3) although comfortable were just that bit too low for my ageing limbs ! Otherwise a well equipped, clean place to stay. My second time there...


Corner Cottage is located above, and has a lovely long view towards, the water. It is peaceful in the sunny patio at the front of the house and the cottage itself is comfortable (and during a chilly April visit, well heated), properly equipped and quite charming.

Kaye Evans

Corner Cottage was in a lovely position in St Mawes, close to the harbour, shops and local footpaths and with the added bonus of on site parking. Cottage was clean and well looked after and we thoroughly enjoyed snuggling up in front of the fire every evening after our days out.

Loy Gusthoff

The Corner Cottage was clean, comfortable and lovely place for a family stay. It provides all necessary facilities and benefits from excellent views and very convenient location in close proximity to the centre of St Mawes. Highly recommend..!

Andrew Cole

Superb cottage in a fantastic location. Weather helped during our visit but this would make a great base whatever the weather. Well presented and cared-for with everything you need for a week in St Mawes. Will definitely look to come back.

Ml Boden

Very well equipped in the kitchen. Comfortable beds ! Traditional decor. Good parking space Central location

David Croft

Well-maintained cottage in a beautiful location. Would stay there again if re-visiting Roseland Peninsula.

Elaine Bird

Our first visit to St Mawes, we had a lovely chilled week with walks and ferry trips virtually from the door of the cottage. Very friendly local pubs, shops etc. The cottage has everything you need for a week's holiday and the location is fab, lovely view from the main bedroom.


3rd stay in ideally located Cottage with all home comforts. Sea view and cosines on blustery days, secluded sunny courtyard a treat.


Our second stay at Corner Cottage which is perfectly suited to our needs. The cottage is cosy but has enough living space for a night in. The open fire was perfect for the chilly spring evenings. The cottage is ideally situated for walking to the town below or to the back road that leads to fields and the coast path for dog walks. Lovely comfy beds!!

Colin Billows

The cottage is in a very good location only 150m from the harbour although it is on a very steep hill. St Mawes has the advantage of being about 15 miles from the main roads through Cornwall but this is also a slight disadvantage for sightseeing. We loved the quiet location and found the local pubs, especially The Rising Sun excellent value for money and the food so good we never cooked at the cottage. The cottage is spacious with a large lounge with plenty of seating for relaxing with a glass of wine before walking to the pub for some food. The cottage was spotless and there was plenty of cutlery, plates and mugs. The master bedroom has a large comfortable bed, with plenty of wardrobe and drawer units. If you want a few nights of quiet relaxation I recommend St Mawes and Corner Cottage and at £80.00 per night, far better than a hotel.

Sarah Allen

It was so easy to find the cottage and we appreciated the parking space (even though our large car only just squeezed in to it). We thought the cottage was very comfortable and spacious, but might not be suitable for small children due to the lack of outside space for letting off steam. We didn't need any of the games provided because we spent a lot of time on trips, nor did we use the kitchen other than for making hot drinks and using the dishwasher, but if we had been staying longer than a week we would certainly have needed the washing machine, cooker and microwave. There seemed to be everything you could need to cook properly, but we would have liked a cafetiere and would have brought our own if we knew there wasn't one. I think they are pretty standard items nowadays. We chose Corner Cottage specifically because it had a 6 foot bed, whereas most of the other cottages we looked at only had 4'6" ones, which made us think their rooms must be small. However, the bedrooms at Corner Cottage are spacious and both have good sized wardrobes. We only used one bedroom but I did go into the other one when looking for a hairdryer (yes, I did find one!). The twin room has a washbasin. The bathroom is a good size too and was very clean. The bed in the main bedroom is quite firm but we slept very well, and were surprised how quiet it was, especially as the cottage is right on the road halfway up a VERY STEEP hill ( we think it is one in three if not steeper!) There are good views from the bedroom, and it takes only about 3 minutes to walk down to the harbour area, where there are shops and lots of places to eat. All in all we would be very happy to stay in Corner Cottage again, as there is still plenty to see in the area that we didn't have time for.

Vicki Usher

Corner Cottage is a lovely, comfortable house and we would definitely stay again. It's particularly helpful to have your own parking space in St Mawes during the summer.

Maggie Smith

Great stay in a perfect location, view from main bedroom inspiring. So happy to find a cottage that is dog friendly. For some the steep hill from the harbour to the cottage would be off putting but for me, hubbie and dog it was good exercise! A extra addition of a DVD player would be an asset for rainy days other than that a well equipped cottage. Would definitely use again.

Ava Williams

This is our third visit to Corner Cottage and it did not fail to disappoint us. Exceptional standards as always, everything we could have wanted. Kitchen well equipped. Living area comfortable


A homely cottage with all the appliances you need for a comfortable holiday. The owners have given it a lot of thought. The car parking space is a real advantage. In addition being allowed a dog is a plus. The only draw drawback is the hill you have to climb to get to the cottage but with the car parking space it's easy to nip down to the village and not worry where to park on your return. Altogether situated close to the road it is a quiet situation.

Sarah Kay

Whilst superbly located this cottage needs some redecoration to be really comfortable. The drawers in the main bedroom were broken and the decorative state in some parts is needing some attention. However, the cottage is overall comfortable and located superbly for all that St Mawes has to offer, whilst also very relaxing and quiet. We chose this cottage because of the parking, but barely used the car while we were there due to the great local walks and ferries. Would probably choose a different cottage next time unless it had been updated somewhat, but we loved St Mawes.

Gail Finch

Just three nights and terrible weather. However it was lovely to snuggle up by the open fire in the spacious living room after a bracing walk with the dog or an excellent supper in one of the dog friendly eateries in St Mawes. Very well appointed.cottage with everything you need in the kitchen. Comfy beds and convient private parking space. Hoping to come back in spring and enjoy the outdoors a little more.

Peter Davis

Corner Cottage had a delightful atmosphere . Well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds . The main bedroom could do with a full length mirror and a couple of comfortable bedroom chairs . The dining room chairs up there look awful .Cushions on the chairs in the dining area would be a good idea too. .Maybe a warning about the steep hill would be a good idea for the older visitor .

Christian Dale

This was our third stay at Corner Cottage and, as before, we had a great holiday. The cottage is perfect for us; it is welcoming, spacious has all amenities and is thoroughly relaxing. It is a 5 minute walk to the harbour and a great base from which to explore the Roseland. We look forward to staying at Corner Cottage again and would thoroughly recommend it.

Clare Maclean

Our family stayed in Corner Cottage in late August 2015 and it was was perfect in every way. Bedrooms cosy and comfortable, location great - would definitely visit again.


This is our second visit to Corner Cottage and it was excellent - just what you need to have a fantastic and relaxing holiday. Cottage and location are brilliant.


Great sitting room - lovely size. Well kitted out - the cottage has everything you may be in need of. Just a quick walk down onto the front & harbour - a bit longer on the way back as it is a steep (but short) climb up. Victory Inn very close. Beds are comfortable. We had a great week with our Miniature Schnauzer. Plenty of walks nearby.

Mark Berresford

Well cared for comfy house with everything one needs on holiday, tastefully done. It is on a steep hill and that should be borne in mind if you are elderly or disabled but otherwise a perfect base for exploring the lovely Roseland peninsula. Note to owner: the leaky shower hose needs replacing, otherwise top marks!

Martin Dunston

Our stay in Corner cottage was excellent the cottage is very spacious and has every thing you need to make your stay run smooth, the view from the bedroom window of the harbour is breathtaking all in all an excellent find.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - the cottage was excellent, St Mawes was fantastic and we will certainly be booking here again. Would definitely recommend.


Corner Cottage is a very pretty and homely place to stay, located within a few minutes from the sea front but up a very steep hill. St. Mawes is a lovely Cornish seaside town and I would go back but probably not to Corner Cottage as I have some back and hip problems and would try to avoid such a steep climb. The cottage itself was well equipped and felt like home from home but could have been cleaner especially in the kitchen area. Also, due to unexpected circumstances, our stay was from the 20-28 August and as I am aware that the cottage had not been rented to any other visitors and I had given a month's notice regarding this, I feel that value for money was a bit steep as I paid for 3 days that I was not there. We did not receive any service during our stay but I have put ok and I am not sure if I would recommend the property due to the steep hill and the matter over the fees.


First to note, Corner Cottage is on a steep hill, but it's not restricting if you're able-bodied, and it's not long (2 minutes) down to St Mawes harbour. The house is comfortable and well-proportioned for a family stay - we were five, one on a camper bed which is provided. All the facilities were good - kitchen, bathroom, living space, internet etc. Location is quiet and door at the bottom of the stairs helps to segregate the house further. Outside patio area was lovely, catching the sun in afternoon and evening and good for BBQ. St Mawes itself has all the shops and amenities you could need within walking distance. Also well connected by ferry to Falmouth and the Roseland. Lots of nice places to eat and relax! The weather for our week was excellent, so all-in-all a very, very good holiday.


This property was booked by me for one of my daughters and her family. Usually they stay in our holiday cottage but on this occasion, with too many family members visiting us at the same time we had to arrange for extra accommodation. There were two adults and three children and the cottage was perfect as they could all be accommodated with ease. They loved the cottage and found the position very useful for the children who were then able to walk to the village or come and see us by themselves. Parking was very useful just outside the property. It worked exceedingly well and should there be a need in the future, I would rebook the same property. Maria-Antonietta St Mawes


Corner cottage is a beautiful house, we found it had everything we needed for our holiday, a kitchen kitted out like home, it was clean relaxing, light and spacious.Having a log fire in the evening topped off our days wonderfully. Was so relaxing sitting in the cottage's private contained garden, with a cold glass of wine after a walk and visit to the lovely St Mawes castle, and a tipple on the terrace of the Hotel Tresanto overlooking the stunning views. We all thoroughly enjoyed our first stay in St Mawes after staying in various locatins in Cornwall for over 30 years and would absolutely recommend Corner Cottage to others, with one caveat, although the parking for two cars great and driving access is fine, when on foot it is a very short walk to the village and sea, however the cottage rests on a very steep hill that we found challenging to get back up some days, this may affect persons with problems with mobility (as our daughter has) but overall it was superb and we had a great time. A big thank you to Cornwall cottages for a superb service and to the owners of Corner cottage who obviously take great pride in their property and very good care of their "holiday lodgers"

Anna Pemberton

This was our third visit to Corner Cottage and we loved every minute of it. It is a wonderfully welcoming cottage in an ideal location and it feels like a second home to us. It is a quiet, peaceful spot and takes less than 2 minutes to get to the beach (our 7 year old times it!!) Counting down the days to next year!


After a hectic drive down from London, it was a very welcome relief to arrive at "Corner Cottage" what a delight. The cottage was warm, clean, homely and had everything you needed. The location was the best, I don't know whether it's a well kept secret or it's the steepness of the roads that keep the tourists at bay but whatever its great. Back in Australia dreaming of our time spent there, hope to come back soon.


Pretty character cottage in a lovely location with views to the sea, and with parking, it had everything we were looking for, and more. Only a short walk to the harbour with a lovely selction of shops and restaurants, and also some scenic coastal walks on the doorstep. We had a relaxing break, and highly recommend this cottage.
