St Mawes Retreats: Luxury Cottages in Cornwall

Magical holidays in St Mawes, Cornwall

Selby Family at St Mawes Retreats in Cornwall


We have been taking holidays with our children in Cornwall’s St Mawes for well over 10 years. From the day we arrived we fell in love with the village and the people who live in it. St Mawes is the most magical place in the world, a luxury break from everyday life.

At every opportunity – winter, summer, spring and autumn – we escape to St Mawes and its stunning sea views, whether its for a short break or longer. Our children never want to leave – they have such fun – and neither do we! It is our haven. It is the beauty and tranquillity of St Mawes that propels us into another world.

Why St Mawes is so special

Located on the stunning Roseland Peninsula, St Mawes is a wonderful ‘secret’ in amongst many other wonderful things to see and do locally. Don’t take our word for it – this article gives details of beaches, picturesque hamlets, attractions and places to eat locals and visitors might not know about, and explains that the Roseland Peninsula is a hidden gem!

Why Our Holiday Cottages and Houses Are Special

For comfort – at St Mawes Retreats, we have selected beds that will give you a good nights sleep in all our luxury houses. (We did a lot of research with family and friends testing the comfort factor before we bought our beds!) We chose Hypnos; the choice of Her Majesty the Queen!
