Bennerley House - a holiday home that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms
A week at Bennerley House
The house has been beautifully renovated and the views are stunning. Our stay was mostly comfortable- there were a few very small practicalities missing (coffee table looks lovely but isn’t practical, missing bins/ coasters etc.). Our favourite space was the kitchen- diner. It’s a brilliant space to eat or drink and watch the world go by. Overall, a really relaxing week away.
Hello...We're glad you enjoyed being our first guests after renovations! We are staying here this week and have taken care of the small practicalities you mentioned. Thanks for the review!
St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.
St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes' walk including a well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
