St Mawes has an easy Mediterranean charm, with villas and fishermen’s cottages, clustered on the south facing slopes, amongst scattered palm trees and mature pines. The occasional stylish restaurant, art gallery, boutique and hotels all cluster around the harbour and promenade and jostle for position with quintessentially Cornish bakeries, ice cream and fudge shops.
St Mawes is located at the tip of South Cornwall’s renowned Roseland peninsular. It is one of England’s most beautiful small coastal resorts and as such is an exceptionally sought after holiday destination for those ‘in the know’. It has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and is a perfect spot for all ages to enjoy the seaside with the sheltered beaches, rock pools, and as a start point for numerous bracing coastal walks.
