St Mawes

St Mawes Cornwall

St Mawes lies nestled at the very tip of the Roseland Peninsula, a beautiful traditional fishing village, St Mawes has many charms. Quaint winding roads leading to another gem of a view, wonderful rolling farmland down to the crystal cornish sea, stunning historic buildings and nearly always somewhere to find a warming cup of tea or proper pint of the finest cornish ale.

St Mawes offers a wide choice of restaurants from the simple pasty from the bakery on the St Mawes quay, a sandwich made before your eyes in the deli, more formal dining in the Idle rocks or Tresanton Hotel and what better then pub grub and a pint in the Victory Inn or Rising Sun. During the day treat your self to a hot coffee and light pastry from either Cafe chandlers watching the boats come and go, "The View" cafe right on the harbour or tucked away in the Arcade the Roseland Cafe. Due to the sloped position of the village nearly all offer the most wonderful sea views.

A true mecca for families there is so much to offer in St Mawes, from whiling away hours rock pooling, trust us, we have known many an adult lose days just doing this!, crabbing on the St Mawes quay- a great way to jostle up some friendly family rivalry, quiet hidden coves for the sunbather in you, fishing trips with local knowledgeable skippers, a fun filled childrens park with woodland walks, rope slide, tennis court and a newly built scooter/skate ramp, for those who just want peace and quiet simply take a cooling icecream and perch upon a blanket in front of the best view the man in the sky could provide!
