St Mawes may not be the best known of Cornwall’s holiday resorts, but it’s certainly one of the prettiest. It’s a wonderful base for a holiday to Cornwall, with popular attractions such as the awe-inspiring Eden Project, the mystical Lost Gardens of Heligan and the National Trust’s Lanhydrock House all within easy reach.
A must-see on any St Mawes holiday is St Mawes Castle. Built by Henry VIII as a coastal artillery fortress, this well-preserved, cloverleaf-shaped castle is steeped in history.
