The West Country region
Cornwall has long been one of the most popular holiday destinations in England because of its beauty and variety of activities. The Roseland Peninsular in Southern Cornwall has unrivalled coastal scenery with wooded glades, craggy cliffs, delightful creeks, secluded coves and beautiful fishing villages. It is steeped in history with its ancient megalithic monuments, legends and stately homes. The climate is the mildest in the UK, so the famous tropical gardens of Heligan, Trebah and Trelissick are well worth a visit. Falmouth, with the National Maritime Museum, is a short ferry journey away. The Eden Project, Tate Gallery at St. Ives, surfing in Newquay, Rick Stein's in Padstow, Caerhays Castle and gardens, and Helston and are all within an hour or so's drive. There is also course and trout fishing areas near Falmouth. It is fabulous for all water sports enthusiasts.
St. Mawes lies at the tip of the Roseland Peninsular in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by spectacular National Trust scenery. It provides some of the finest sailing waters in the British Isles. Being positioned within the Gulf stream, it has a mild climate, which in the summer is comparable to parts of the Mediterranean. St Mawes has its own tropical garden at Lamorran House and the beautiful gardens of St Just in Roseland Church are a walk away. The village boasts several restaurants and hotels serving superb local sea food. For a fine dining experience there is the world famous Tresanton Hotel. St Mawes has many amenities including a range of shops selling excellent local produce, two banks, three pubs, a hairdresser, a post office, chemist, doctors, churches, tennis court, kayaking, bike hire, fishing excursions, a sailing club and a very scenic Tudor Castle (English Heritage). Horse riding stables are five miles away. It is an ideal base for family holidays, having several sandy beaches, plus excellent rock pooling and crabbing off the quay.
The small idyllic harbour, an important port in medieval times, has a small working fishing fleet, fishermens cottages, sandy beaches, craggy cliffs and fields sweeping down to the sea. Being on the South West Coastal Path, it is a paradise for walkers and a magnet for artists, bird watchers and sailors. From the quay, there are passenger ferries to Falmouth (National Maritime museum), Truro and Place, or you can take a water cab up the Fal estuary. Failing this you could just laze on the beach with a Cornish pasty and watch the beautiful sailing boats...........A perfect spot for a memorable holiday.
