St. Mawes


Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in St. Mawes

St. Mawes is a pretty harbourside village that looks out over the River Fal towards Falmouth. The dramatic Cornish coastline around St. Mawes was used as the setting for the popular BBC television series Poldark. St. Mawes is an ideal spot for a family holiday with its great beaches on either side of the harbour. Both beaches are excellent for water sports and benefit from a southerly aspect. St. Mawes has shops, pubs and eateries, as well as a Sailing Club. Ferries leave the main harbour at regular intervals taking people on the short trip across the Percuil River to Anthony Head or across to Falmouth. The area also includes the coastal footpath and visitors can enjoy many lovely coastal and inland walks. St. Mawes Castle is a fine example of Tudor architecture. The Castle offers some of the finest views of Falmouth and its location on the water’s edge make it a must-see!
