A beautiful coastal home in central St Mawes

Settled on a quiet street, just yards from the beautiful St Mawes harbour, Crew Cottage combines all the charm of a Cornish cottage with superior interior style and a truly idyllic setting. Four beautiful bedrooms and inviting living areas are the perfect backdrop to your family holiday. Embrace laid-back living in this first-class location and explore the unspoiled beaches, charming fishing coves and miles of rolling headlands and coastal paths that make up this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Short breaks are available on request. 

Cornish Gems are thrilled to welcome this idyllic Cornish cottage to our Roseland Peninsula collection. Discover the tranquillity and beauty of St Mawes and beyond.

Step Inside

Wander from the harbour to the beautiful blue front door of Crew Cottage in moments. Sensitively refurbished and tastefully styled, you'll feel right at home inside and ready to enjoy a very Cornish way of life. Lead left into the dining room where delicious dinners are to be enjoyed in great company. On winter evenings guests can light up the log burner and tuck into something hearty, and in the warmer months open the sea-facing window and let the sea air sweep in. The fully-fitted kitchen at Crew Cottage begs for culinary creativity, so for a dinner that couldn't be fresher, skip down to the harbour and pick up the catch of the day from St Mawes Seafood on the quay. Also on the ground floor, and flaunting those dreamy maritime views, the twin bedroom adopts a paired back, calming palette with cool, coastal artwork. Ascend to the first floor, where two more bedrooms, the family bathroom and living room await. With sofas to sink into and views to get lost in, the sitting room is a place in which to completely relax. The master bedroom boasts double windows overlooking the sea, and a perfectly placed window seat from which to take it all in. A separate, newly refurbished annex to the back of the cottage contains the final light and airy bedroom and a new large ensuite. 

On Your Doorstep

Crew Cottage offers an elevated terrace from which to soak up the Cornish sunshine. Perhaps you'll even dress the outdoor table and dine under the stars? If you can bear to leave your holiday haven, your local village of St Mawes is one of Cornwall’s prettiest, showcasing breathtaking natural beauty, dreamy architecture and a sophisticated yet laid-back style. White-washed and thatched cottages cluster around the water, where cool cafes, bakeries and galleries offer tempting artisan delights. Swimmers will adore the sheltered waters for morning dips, just walk from your door in a minute. There is plenty of culture to embrace, too. Built by King Henry VIII, St Catherine's Castle overlooks Carrick Roads, a large waterway known by sailors the world over. Guests can watch the maritime world go by here, from classic tall ships to racing yachts. From the harbour, The Fal River Company shuttles visitors across to Falmouth, where sailing regattas, festivals and a vibrant high street are ready to embrace you. Bay-dreamers will enjoy the sandy coves with sparkling waters that are dotted around the Roseland Peninsula, including Portscatho and Portloe. If activity and adventure calls, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a walker’s paradise, with a great variety of coastal and inland walks. You can take the five minute ferry ride to Place Creek, where you can join the coast path and follow it to the lighthouse at St Anthony head. Crew Cottage's owners recommend walking round to Portscatho, where The Hidden Hut serves freshly cooked food among the sea air. Tucked away into a south-facing nook of the River Fal, guests are ideally placed to sail, swim, enjoy a Fal River cruise or simply watch the world sail by. There are even weekly moorings available to rent in the bay, and a seasonal floating pontoon - perfect for if you want to get out on the water on your own dinghy or rib.
