We had such a wonderful stay at Seaspray in March 2019. We travelled from Kent to attend a close family memorial in St Mawes and Seaspray was ideally located for everything we needed. The owners had equipped the apartment with everything you need. Even thinking of beach chairs and crabbing equipment! WiFi would have been useful in the apartment but luckily we had enough 4g to cover us for the weekend. We would absolutely recommend staying at Seaspray for a trip to St Mawes.
Clean,well equipped,comfortable,perfectly located. We hope to return. Loved St Mawes. Thank you. Mary
We booked the cottage as a base for myself and my bridesmaids to get ready for our wedding at St Mawes Castle on the 26th August, planning to stay for a local honeymoon the following week. The apartment is somewhat difficult to find (the intructions say "go downstairs" but don't detail that these stairs are inside!), also we had expected there would be parking associated with the property from our booking - there is a pay and display car park, this may have just been our misunderstanding. The local pay and display was terrible, with machines charging £30 for "one week" but printing a ticket valid from Saturday to 8am Wednesday morning. We got this extended but it was a lot of hassle. The apartment is mostly underground so has a vaguely musty smell, but this isn't overpowering (on other days there is a strong smell of the dentist next door). The keys are conveniently accessed via a safe key box by the door - this is a great idea. One of our first discoveries was that there was no wifi, and no phone signal. As we were getting close to our wedding day this made things rather stressful, and we might have booked somewhere else/ made other arrangements if we had known, to ensure we could make any last minute communications! It seems reasonable to expect a rental property to have wifi in 2017, and if not, for this to be communicated during booking. The apartment was very clean - except for a couple of silverfish that we encountered on the kitchen floor on our second day - not very welcome visitors! The main bed in the bedroom was comfortable, as was the sofa bed. We were woken very early on the Saturday morning by a noisy delivery to the Co-op, but this is clearly outside of your control, as the windows at are at external floor level. This also led to an awful lot of "peering in" by passers by - some kind of net curtain or privacy blind would help. The shower drained very slowly and looked as though it might overflow a few times - it needs a proper clean! The roof terrace is wonderful, with stunning views and a nice seating area - we were pretty much there on our own whenever we visited, which was lovely. These are some niggling snags but nothing that spoilt our lovely holiday in St Mawes - and perfect wedding day!
Second visit to this lovely apartment. Deceptively spacious and extremely comfortable. The clever layout means that everything is to hand. My children loved the comfy pull out sofa bed. Great spot right on the waterfront, enabling us to buy food as we needed. Surprisingly quiet (both day and night!) given the location. Plan to be back next year!
We had a wonderful week in St Mawes & only took the car out once. We walked & used the ferries other times. Plenty to see & do, excellent food. We can recommend the Idle Rocks for both the cream tea & dinner, the Victory pub & the St Mawes hotel. Cafe @ Chandlers does excellent coffee & breakfast. Good service in all shops & restaurants. The vault was fine, very overlooked so we kept the curtains drawn all the time. Noisy at night if you had the window open but not for very long. Excellent position & well looked after.
This was a lovely holiday enjoyed by my wife and I with our two grandchildren age 7 & 9 . The apartment was in a perfect position with a beautiful sea view. It was in good decorative order and well equipped. We were able to swim in the sea by simply crossing the road, our grandchildren were particularly happy with this and made lots of friends. St Mawes itself is a very pretty seaside resort with numerous local beaches to visit and we will definitely be coming back.
The ground floor accommodation lacks privacy. Both rooms are constantly overlooked by the passersby. Also, not having good reception for telephone within the flat is a constant source of irritation. The lack of Broadband facility has beeen another frustrating experience. The location of the flat is however good. Also facilities within were satisfactory. We are in two minds in recommending this holiday flat to others. It's not value for money.
Most enjoyable stay like home from home highly recommend its in a good location with good views.
Excellent apartment with everything you need. Situated next to the sea front with a lovely view on the harbour. Within a minutes walk to the restaurant/pub/shops. It also had a roof terrace with a lovely sea view. We hopefully will return.
Very central to shops and restaurants. Car park just around the corner, Apartment very clean and well equipped but unfortunately the windows are a street level so passerby can watch you all day. We kept the curtains closed and the lights on! Ok in winter but Summer could prove a problem. Noisy footfall from passers bye.
Really enjoyed our stay in this super ground floor apartment. Very clean, warm ,very comfortable, well equipped and very handy for lots of restaurants and shops. In fact it was great to just leave the car in the town central car park[ a hundred yards away] and use the Ferry to tour outside of St Mawes, twenty minutes to Falmouth by Ferry. Plenty of good pub food and welcoming locals. Will definitely be going back
We had an amazing weekend at Seaspray. Apartment was in a fantastic location by the sea and the roof terrace is beautiful to look out from and relax. The apartment it's self is very clean and well equipped. I took my mother and six year old all of which we had a lovely holiday.
Lovely apartment looking out on the beautiful St.Mawes harbour which will serve you well as a base for some cracking sailing. If thats not your thing there's plenty of walks, rock pooling, swimming all right out of the front door. You'll find your best morning coffee at Chandlers cafe beneath the sailing club, best icecream next door and saffron buns/ doughnuts at the bakers on the harbour. I came with 2 children of 8 & 6 and they really liked the feel of the place, local kids came down to the harbour at hightide to divebomb off the harbour wall, swim and muck about. The water in the harbour is amazingly clean and you can see the crabs on the bottom that you're trying to catch! On our last day we rented a lovely old workboat, 'Smuggler' from James at Fish and Trips and explored all of Carrick Bends from Black Rock to Truro via The Percuil River, Falmouth for lunch, Mylor for coffee/watching the harbour crane lift out yachts and then a bit of unsuccessful fishing over the side. We had a cracking time and will be back yearly I suspect....enjoy
Very much enjoyed our stay at seaspray, great views and just a stone's throw from the harbour. Lovely view to look at every morning.Would recommend to family and friends
Just returned from a week at Sea spray - it is a lovely, clean, & well equipped apartment in a great central location. Would definitely recommend. If mobile phone coverage is important to you then it's worth mentioning that you do need to wander up the road a bit to get a signal (but that down to the coverage of the general area and not criticism of the apartment). This actually suited us as we were after a relaxing holiday, also given how pretty St Mawes is wandering up the road is not a bad thing. Finally Cornwall Cottages were very helpful during the booking process and no problems there either.
Great holiday let with a stunning view. Immaculately clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Central harbour front property with a great fish and chip shop around the corner. Was great to find a reasonable apartment in an expensive but lovely town.
Seaview is perfectly located with plenty of aminity's nearby the area is beautiful and there is a leads something to see or do. The accommodation is spacious clean and everything is provided I would highly recommend a stay here
Seaspray was so clean and well equipped they have thought of everything. We didn't mind being on view although this may put some people off. Grat roof terrace although we had problems with the key which was very stiff. Apart from that cannot fault it.
one word very ghood,nice roof terace ghod kitchen whit ewyrythengh you may need fhor make some nice food,i loved,nicevtv and sofa,very clean and beautifol
GREAT LOCATION OVER LOOKING THE HARBOUR, THE WINDOW IS A MOVING CANVAS. VERY GOOD WEATHER FOR SEPTEMBER, HENCE LONG WALKS WITH SEA VIEWS ALL THE TIME. TO EAT OUT IN ST MAWES CAN BE EXPENSIVE, BUT PUBS IN THE LOCAL AREA ARE VERY GOOD AND REASONABLY PRICED. THE ONLY DOWN FALL TO SEASPRAY IS THE TV SIGNAL KEEPS FREEZING OR DROPPING OUT, THIS NEEDS ADDRESSING AS IT CAN BE IRRITATING AS THE NIGHTS DRAW IN.
We had a very comfortable stay in Seaspray. The apartment was everything it promised to be. We would certainly consider returning. The roof terrace was a bonus.
This was our 4th year visiting St Mawes so we knew where we were going to stay from the outside, we were absolutley delighted when we entered Seaspray. It was so bright and clean and smelt really fresh. The owners have definately put in a lot of thought and effort into making their clients comfortable. Everything you needed was there. The roof terrace was a definate bonus to get a good view of the Harbour. The only thing we didn't like was that you could be looked at by passing people, Net curtains may be an idea but it may not be possible as the windows are also the fire escape route, we actually didn't open the bedroom curtains all week for privacy.However it didn't spoil our stay and we will definately be booking again.Thanks very much.
We had a fantastic stay in St.Mawes in no small part due to our accommodation in Seaspray. It was very clean, well equipped - including local guides, games, DVDs etc. - and lacked nothing in the way of home comforts. Fortunately the weather was fantastic but it was always good to get back to Seaspray to cool off and recover on the roof terrace.
A lovely base for boating , eating The apartment was lovely and comfortable with everything you need on holiday . We would have liked wifi connection
I was very impressed with the standard of the flat as a whole. a great amount of attention to the details made for a much more pleasant stay. The flat is well located and was very comfortable - highly recommended.
Seaspray was a fantastic flat in a great location and was clean and tidy with everything you could need. WouId definitely stay there again. To be able to see the beach and see and be that close to it was great. St mawes was a picture perfect location.
An ideally located apartment, in a beautiful village, that was just right for our small family. Very good facilities and cleanliness, with all the comforts of home. Highly recommended.
