St. Mawes is a pretty fishing village nestled at the end of the Roseland Peninsula, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt parts of the British Isles. Narrow streets and white-washed cottages help to give St. Mawes a quaint feel, and you’ll still find all the modern facilities you could need. Gorgeous gardens, galleries, quality cafés and restaurants and two beautiful beaches are just some of the highlights. If history and heritage is more your thing, popular historic attractions include St. Mawes Castle and the nearby Pendennis Castle. The harbour offers many boat excursions; explore the Fal Estuary on a river trip, or board the St. Mawes Ferry and enjoy world-class scenery as you make your way to Falmouth. Avid walkers should make a beeline for the St. Anthony headland, boasting panoramic coastal views and an abundance of wildlife. Take your pick and have the holiday of a lifetime!
