Location – St Mawes

St Mawes is located at the tip of the Roseland Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with much National Trust property nearby. It provides a good range of small shops, banks and restaurants/hotels as well as a passenger ferry service to Falmouth. The St Mawes area is renowned for its extremely mild climate and amongst sailing enthusiasts for the excellent waters of the Percuil River, Carrick Roads (Fal estuary) and Falmouth Bay. In a wider context, Cornwall is enjoying a renaissance and offers a range of accessible attractions including the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Tate Gallery in St Ives and Stein’s Seafood restaurant in Padstow. The Cathedral City of Truro is 10 miles away (via King Harry car ferry) and Falmouth is 15 miles. Both of these are major centres providing a wide selection of shopping, commercial and schooling facilities. London (Gatwick) is about 70 minutes by air from Newquay, by rail about 4.5 hours from Truro or about 4 hours from St Austell.
