Latest reviews | Events in St Mawes | 10 Places to Stay

St Mawes is beautifully situated at the southern end of the Roseland Peninsula, and from medieval times was a busy port and fishing harbour. Today it remains a major centre of marine activity of all sorts. St Mawes Castle, the twin to Pendennis Castle across the Carrick Roads, was built by Henry XIII in the middle of the 16th century. It is an easy 2-mile coastal walk from the castle to St Just in Roseland church, described by John Betjeman as “to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth” A pedestrian ferry runs to Falmouth. The trip takes about 25 minutes, and is a good way to get afloat for a short scenic trip. In the summer months a small ferry runs to St Anthony headland across St Mawes outer harbour. Here there are many stunning walks, a lighthouse and fantastic coastal views. A little further afield on the Roseland Peninsula you’ll find attractive villages such as Portscatho, Tregony, Portloe and Veryan, the latter best known for the five white roundhouses which guard its entrance. There are two beaches in St Mawes, and more beaches further along the coast. They are quiet without the amenities of the larger resorts. Population 1,000
