This is a great house in a fantastic location with lots of bathrooms and an amazing garden. Very warm as it has an ever hot in the kitchen, well equipped and lots of sitting areas, beautiful views of the sea and St Mawes, we would love to stay again. Only criticism would be the shower which isnt very powerful, other than that its a great place to stay.
We loved this place. In need of some renovation in places eg utility room cupboards coming off hinges. The agar oven was a challenge! There were some cleaning issues, the hot plate which we did not use was dirty and the wet room had not been cleaned. Parking was difficult at garage we could park on the road as it was low season. These are minor points. The garden was great so long as children and dogs are closely supervised due to high ledges. This is not a good place if you are looking for an upmarket place with full en-suite. For us the place was great we loved the history the views and all loved our stay.
Lovely situation in St Mawes, right by Tavern Beach, with fantastic views. You might want to be wary if you have small children as the door opens onto the main road, although there is a little iron baby gate. Stay marred by Aga not functioning - wouldn't even melt cheese... so we ate a lot of microwaved soup. Obviously Aga service repair don't happen overnight but a back-up hob would not go amiss. We had to chop up our fine haunch of venison (meant for roasting) and slow cook it in a stew for an entire day. Note that they do not supply any logs, just kindling, which is a disappointment after driving for five or so hours in the sleet. Not a long walk to the Co-op though. I'd book again, but be more prepared for Aga horror and log situation.
Our family of three generations and a dog has stayed at Seacliffe Warren on several occasions in the past few years, and we keep returning because we love the cottage and its location above Tavern Beach, a short walk from the centre of St Mawes. We have our favourite walks, boat trips, pubs and pasties. Autumn isn't complete without a stay at Seacliffe Warren. However it has to be said that the house is in need of some TLC. The owners need to address a rather long list of overdue repairs and maintenance. Their rental income is certainly high enough to cover the costs. We have already booked our holiday next year, and hope that by then, the niggling problems will be resolved.
Great location and a fabulous garden at the back which is wonderful for evening drinks etc. Sadly the house is very dark especially on poor days. Also it does get quite warm with the aga going all the time meaning one has to have the windows open at the front bedrooms which is noisy at night. Remarkably clean given that dogs are allowed.
A well equipped property within easy reach of all the amenities, particularly the Rising Sun and Tresanton. We loved the AGA and the rear garden provided an added bonus, not just for our dog, but for us as a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the views over to St Anthony's Head. The only negative is that the property suffered from weak flow from the showers, Power showers would elevate this property from excellent to outstanding.
Lovely thatched cottage in an excellent location. The property has a wonderful garden with superb views. The cottage is so close to the sea, you can hear the sea lapping on the shore at night time. It was Very well equipped kitchen complete with AGA. We were a family of 5 with 3 dogs and we all had a wonderful time. Beds were very comfortable. The cottage is a little dated (I know its very old) but we just felt that perhaps the price is a little expensive for the condition of the cottage.
We always enjoy our time at sea cliffs. In need of attention summer house equipment very poor , no sun shade shed collapsing . The garage entrance is so narrow its a hazard to most vehicles , it wouldnt take much to enlarge the entrance without Having to enlarge the structure.. Everything else ok.
We are regular visitors to St Mawes and this was a weekend break with family. The location is excellent at the top of Tavern beach. The house is cottage-style with plenty of history. Only criticism would be that the kitchen is a little awkward to work in. Certainly a great place to stay though.
Very good location right on the beach and with beautiful sea views. Only a 3 minute stroll down the road to the pub/supermarket etc. Clean and tidy with comfy beds. All in all very happy.
An excellent location with superb facilities makes this cottage one of the best we have ever stayed in . Despite some modernisation it retained bundles of character and charm that we love . Low ceilings in places meant some bumped heads and a new fridge is needed soon we think .
We had a lovely week in seacliffe warren. The location is perfect, the front door practically opens on to tavern beach. The garden is fabulous for evening drinks/BBQ s. The decor is slightly dated and kitchen not very spacious, but this would not stop me booking again
A few problems with window fastenings. An excellent Location and lovely cottage and garden. Would stay again. Loved the Aga
This is the 7th year we have stayed in St Mawes for the October half term and were delighted to have secured Seacliffe Warren to stay in but all in all it was a disappointment. It is by far the most expensive property we have stayed in (£1300 for a week) but the accommodation just does not match up to it - showers are dribbly, beds are doubles (not kings) and we'd expected feather duvets etc but all felt a little tired. What it does have going for it is location, location, location but this comes at a cost in that everyone walking past peers into the sitting room.
Seacliffe Warren is a lovely comfortable cottage. It is in a great location with easy access to Tavern Beach. You can literally lie in bed and watch the yachts from 2 of the bedrooms. The aga makes it cosy for an Autumn stay. In parts it is a little tired but then it is very old. We would certainly come again, lovely stay.
Had a great week at Seacliffe Warren, Very spacious, perfect location, with the added benefit of its own garage and parking area, the garden is a fantastic place to spend the sunny afternoons having a BBQ and watching the boats go past.
The perfect spot in St Mawes with a lovely view and a short walk to the harbour and shops. The cottage is comfortable without being luxurious and all needs are catered for.
The cottage was charming but is in need of some TLC, mainly the cleanliness. The lay out did not work too well for a large party i.e seating/dining. But in all, we had a lovely holiday and will be returning to Cornwall and will look at accommodation via Cornwall Cottages.
The village of St Mawes is beautiful and this cottage is the backdrop to most people's Selfies when they walk past! Add to that the fact that it is on the seafront overlooking a superb bay and you realise that this is a fantastic location for a holiday. The cottage is well equipped and sleeps 6 people very adequately. A really relaxing stay.
A lovely week in a pretty cottage, well stocked and cosy with aga and real fire! Some minor Changes could make it even better; Downstairs shower dirty (hairs) Lack of good sized settee in front lounge, TV would also be better in front lounge rather than dining area as seating not comfortable in dining area ( to relax and watch TV) Desperately needs proper sized bath towels please! Disappointed with kitchen / layout - impossible to access garden/ fridge etc whilst someone is loading dishwasher and that area of the "kitchen" is more like a "utility" room than a kitchen! Having said that, we were impressed with the excellent range of utensils, crockery and dishes! Felt a bit like being in a fish-bowl - people staring in through windows! Glad we went April and not busy summer months!
A very nice cottage to spend a few days in, but I was pleased there were only 2 of us. I was thinking of booking a further week in the summer for 7 including 3 children, but I am afraid that the kitchen arrangement is not good enough. The bed linen was too small for the two linked beds and the bedroom window sills were awash after heavy rain. The garden was lovely but not at all practical for a Labrador pup. The weather was appalling and we left a day early so that we were able to pack up the car at our leisure and when it wasn't raining. Having said all that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St Mawes and the dog loved the beach.
this is an idyllic sea front cottage with wood burner and Aga and makes a great holiday for families My only comment to increase the comfort further would be that the sitting room armchairs are not particularly comfortable and quite small which is a shame as the woodburner is so cosy to sit in front of! the garden is lovely too and we took our dog and all enjoyed the stay
First class holiday in a cottage that we never thought would be for renting, so many times we have admired this cottage on other holidays, now we have had one too. We gave out your details to other admirers too, so many people told us they loved 'our cottage', will be in contact again for another holiday soon.
Please note that prices include our booking fee, but excludes booking protection and any chargeable extras such as dogs.
