The best location in St Mawes

The Ship & Castle Hotel sits alongside St Mawes’ charming harbour, overlooking the Percuil River in a central location, perfect for discovering everything this wonderful Cornish town has to offer.

Inside, the hotel is designed and decorated in a charming nautical theme and, whether you’re relaxing in the bar or dining in the restaurant, beautiful river views abound.

Several of The Ship & Castle’s generously appointed guest rooms also look out over the water, and some have their own private balconies. What better place to pour a glass of wine and while away an evening watching the pretty lights from the little harbour dance on the surface of the water? 

St Mawes itself is a picture postcard fishing town, tumbling down the tip of Cornwall’s exquisite Roseland Peninsula.

With its higgledy-piggledy whitewashed houses, winding lanes and raft of independent local shops, eateries and pubs, St Mawes is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall, and the ideal base for exploring the many heritage sites and attractions which dot the region.

Enjoy scenic walks along charming coastal paths, unearthing heritage highlights such as St Mawes Castles, or else laying your towel on the sands of a hidden Cornish cove. If you’re looking for an action-packed break away in Cornwall, Falmouth is easily accessed by a short ferry crossing, while Truro is a short car journey. Nature lovers will love the gardens of Lamorran and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, while the award-winning Eden Project is an absolute must during any hotel stay in Cornwall.
