Breath-taking countryside, miles of coastal walks, beautiful architecture and a huge variety of incredible independent shops, restaurants and galleries. These are just some of the things you’ll hear many people shouting about our wonderful home of St Mawes, a place which has been deemed ‘fit for a Princess’, literally, after visits by the Queen, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret over the years.
A trip to Cornwall is likely to be on the agenda for the usual huge swathe of people wanting to luxuriate in the perfect, British break. But rather than opting for the bustling hubs of St Ives or Truro, why not opt for the slightly more laid back choice of St Mawes this year to make you home away from home?
A delight all year round, the pleasures of St Mawes do change with the seasons but enjoyment is not seasonal. Right now, in the quiet post-Christmas lull of January, you’ll find a sense of peace and tranquility unlike any other time of year (with buzzing hubs for January sales shopping just a short journey away). As spring unfolds, you will be met with an abundance of flora and fauna waking up from a long winter sleep. Summer brings some of the world’s best festivals and right up until early autumn, our coastal waters are warm enough to take a dip.
There’s something for everyone in St Mawes. And although a relatively quiet place, we’re not far from the main hubs of Cornwall, making this the ideal spot to choose as you base for a Cornish break.
