“Getting away from it all St Mawes style”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I joined friends staying at Stargazers for a few nights in February 2014. After a horrid drive through pouring rain the sun came out just as I entered St Mawes. Pulling up at the house I didn’t want to enter as I couldn’t tear myself away from the fantastic view and just wanted to explore the beautiful garden.

Once I had unpacked I found my children, one on the large trampoline in the garden and one playing ping pong and we all headed down the hill (a very short walk) to the town where the kids headed straight for the rock pools and we headed straight to the very cosy Rising Sun Pub. In there we found arm chairs and a roaring fire.
Our evenings were spent sitting around the kitchen island while one of us cooked something up then moving on to the large dining table. The kids were all happily tucked up watching a film on one of the many TV’s in the house. At the end of each evening I was more than happy to fall into one of the most comfortable beds I have had the pleasure of sleeping in.
Stargazers is nestled on a hill overlooking the harbour and many an hour was spent snuggled on the sofas or at the large kitchen table with a cup of tea or a glass of wine in hand admiring the view or watching our children running around the garden doing a very early Easter egg hunt. The front of the house is all glass fronted to make the most of this.

One afternoon we had a lovely ferry trip over to Falmouth and we were all excited to spot a seal on route. The obligatory sea side fish and chips were scoffed sat on the harbour.

All in all a lovely holiday was had by all and I cannot recommend Stargazers highly enough.

“Mawsian Magic!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stargazers is a pretty special place. From the great location (and view) a short walk from St Mawes to the immaculately equipped property this place is the epitome of 'five star'. The owners kept us busy with their suggestions and advice and the lovely housekeeper unpacked all our shopping on the day we arrived so we were ready to relax the moment we walked through the front door. A ping-pong table, snooker table, wet suits, electric cars, trampoline, games consoles, massive TVs, your music in the ceiling throughout the ground floor and a revolving wood burner.... the list of lovely surprising stuff you wouldn't normally expect just kept getting longer. If you are looking for a fantastic week away in Cornwall with a bunch of friends or family then look no further! We will be back and will also be sampling the other St. Mawes Retreats properties as soon as we can! Thanks for a really magical and memorable week....the children didn't want to leave and neither did we.

“Amazing house with fabulous views - a holiday to remember”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in May 2013

My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to stay in this expansive house on our own thanks to the owner offering a small group option, making it very affordable.

We were completely blown away when we arrived - we'd seen photos but they really can't do justice to the incredibly high spec finish, little luxury touches and the amazing views. The owners had arranged for the housekeeper to meet us and she had left us a lovely cream tea which was very welcome after our long journey.

We slept like a dream - the beds are vast and have the most comfortable mattresses - same ones the Queen sleeps on I believe! St Mawes is a small village but there is plenty to keep you occupied in it and the surrounding areas. But the thing we enjoyed most was sitting in the gardens, just watching the harbour traffic pass by on the water.

Totally relaxing break and would definitely recommend to anyone - pleased they are now on TripAdvisor so as I can spread the word!
