St Mawes The elegant resort of St Mawes sits on the tip of the Roseland Peninsula on the south Cornish coast and boasts some of the finest day sailing waters in the country. An enduring yet rather exclusive holiday destination, recently described by The Telegraph as 'effortlessly classic and increasingly chic', the village has an active community, family friendly beaches, boutique hotels such as Olga Polizzi's legendary Tresanton and the stunningly refurbished Idle Rocks and St Mawes Hotel, sailing club, restaurants, galleries and shopping for daily needs.

The Roseland The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with dramatic coastline, National Trust land and pretty harbour villages. An enduring holiday destination, the Hidden Hut Beach Cafe at nearby Porthcurnick Beach, has been described as the 'hottest destination in the county, if not the country' and just beyond the beach at Rosevine is the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin starred restaurant. The vibrant harbour town of Falmouth across the bay, reached from St Mawes by passenger ferry, was recently named by Sunday Times readers as the best place to live in the UK. The cathedral city of Truro, with a wide range of commercial facilities and direct rail link to London is 19 miles away and Newquay airport is less than an hour's drive.
