St Mawes is a small, whitewashed fishing village perched at the very end of Cornwall’s Roseland peninsula. It’s the perfect location for breaks all year round; popular for bucket and spade summer holidays but also Christmas breaks, sunny spring weekends and autumn evenings sitting by an open fire after long cliff top walks.

Highbank sits in an elevated position overlooking the village and estuary below; a warm, welcoming home with a log fire, crisp cotton sheets, beautiful views and light airy rooms. St Mawes harbour and village with a good variety of shops, restaurants and pubs are just five minutes walk down the hill.

Warmed by the gulfstream, the climate is mild all year round. In the garden big enough to play or to relax in palm and olive trees trees flourish, flowers bloom early and apples ripen to go straight into a pie.

Whether you visit for a weekend or a fortnight, for a party or a special occasion, to escape from work or do some work, to swim, walk or cycle, to eat or to sleep, Highbank, a house in St Mawes, is a brilliant place to take a break at any time of the year.

The Roseland Peninsula region

In the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations. From the dramatic coastline of the north coast to the sheltered bays in the south, from ancient moorland to soft river estuaries, surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a hectic world have discovered a fascinating, vibrant culture, first class accommodation, food to die for and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.

Whether you're looking for a family holiday, a short break with pre-schoolers, exploring the countryside on foot or a romantic getaway - Cornwall really does have something for everyone.

St Mawes

St Mawes and the other villages on the Roseland such as Portloe, Portscatho and Portholland are some of the prettiest waterside villages in the region. The influence of the gulf stream ensures the climate is pleasant all year round. Mild winters and high summer temperatures result in abundant flora and wildlife with many beautiful gardens and stunning National Trust coastal paths throughout the area.

St Mawes and the surrounding area is a Mecca for boating and yachting boasting three boatyards with numerous moorings and anchorages for visiting yachtsman. The local sailing clubs are extremely active arranging racing events and evening functions for locals & visitors alike. The seafront is a haven for the gastro enthusiast, with waterside restaurants and pubs serving up superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.

There are three hotels in St Mawes providing good food including the internationally-known Hotel Tresanton. There are another seven dotted throughout the Roseland such as the Lugger in Portloe, The Rosevine in Portscatho and the Hundred House Hotel in Ruan.

The Roseland boasts many pubs and a handful of specialist shops. St Mawes even has a small working fishing fleet which now runs a wet fish shop on the St Mawes harbour quay. In addition, the historic seafaring resort town of Falmouth is only a stunning 20 minute ferry ride away for more extensive amenities including the National Maritime Museum, cinemas and both local and high street shops.
