Cobblestones has some of the best panoramic views in St Mawes, being situated in the exclusive western end of the village close to the castle built by Henry VIII in the 1540s. Cobblestones is reverse level with the main entrance on the same level as the main bedrooms and living area; south facing, with a full width balcony, heated plunge pool (available June to September) with permanent safety cover, large garden, plenty of parking and all within walking distance of the village. This is a fantastic property for larger groups and families with a "dormitory" bedroom downstairs that children absolutely love.
Cobblestones is a 5 minute walk from the pretty harbour area of St Mawes and is one of Cornwall's most desirable holiday destinations and the stunning harbour, surrounded by lovely local shops, restaurants, bars and hotels is a constant bustle of vibrancy during the season. There are ferry links from the harbour to St Anthony, Falmouth, Trelissick and Malpas. During the winter it is a quiet, peaceful village that rarely sees frosts or snow. However the best feature of Cobblestones is, without a doubt, the incredible views. It would be easy to while away your entire holiday watching the world go by with yachts, power boats and ferries constantly traversing the vista and occasional shipping movements in Falmouth Bay or heading up the river to the commercial port.

Excellent accommodation with superb views over percuil river estuary and Falmouth bay. The plunge pool is plenty big enough for kids to swim in. Steep drive to the property a bit of a challenge to the faint hearted and the 90 odd steps up from Lower Castle rd can be a bit daunting for some.
Difficult to fault the property itself - if nit picking I would say it could do with some more tea spoons and glasses.
The property is obviously designed for two families and their children, We as a couple found it it to be comfortable but not luxurious as I had been lead to believe. It has obviously had a lot of work carried out in recent years. The bedrooms were very basic, with medium sized beds, the dining furniture was screwed together and the lounge settees, whilst large were far too low for people of our age, The setting was superb, but although we had been warned the gradient down to the property was very daunting.
Had a great time in Upper Cobblestones. Location is fantastic, especially when blessed with sunshine.
Worth mentioning however - the drive is VERY steep. After unloading when we arrived, we left the car at the top, even for loading up again when we left.
Balcony is 100% safe, but would be good to have a couple of low tables; a little narrow for eating out, but fine for drinks!
Sofas are for sinking into, but hard to get out of!
We were a group of friends visiting the Roseland for a wedding. We had a wonderful weekend, the views from the cottage were awesome, very comfortable in every way and we are determined to return!
Weve stayed at this house several times before and before the prices were raised the location and view made up for the poor condition of the house.
We had hoped there would be investment to match the increased price but it was clear Thiabyear that is not the case.
The house is tired and unloved and in need of updating and adding a few quality and comfort touches. It is functional but in poor repair.
Compare this cost with similar properties and the value does not stand up. Its a real shame as the location and view are top quality.
Fantastic views great house for our large family. Drive rather steep wouldnt want to use it in very cold weather. Kitchen could do with a new large cooker.
Balcony unsafe for toddlers and young children. Would recommend to friends without young children, but most like us have young grandchildren!
Stunning location with fantastic views over the estuary from the living room and bedrooms. The plunge pool was bigger than expected which came as a welcome surprise. Very pleasant walk down to St Mawes harbour via the garden steps. (Some motion sensor lighting would be helpful at night when returning from the village.)
Stunning location. A lovely area to explore and sightsee, with walks from the doorstep. The local shops are well equipped.
... so why put one sofa with its back to the view?
Anyway, lovely house. Great view. Fast WiFi. Comfy beds.
Could have done with summer-weight duvets though.
Took the lovely ferry to Falmouth, and explored St Mawes & the castle.
A lovely well appointed holiday property with stunning views and spacious accommodation.
Lovely and warm throughout during a cold, wet and blustery weekend.
Unfortunately the wifi would not work at all for the entire stay which was a nightmare for two teenage children.
It would have been a nice touch to have left a welcome pint of milk and maybe a loaf of bread as after a four and a half hour trip in horrendous rain we then had to go back out to try and source some!
Still, we had a lovely stay!
