Tavern House is in a superb position on the seafront with wonderful sea views. Close to the world-renowned Hotel Tresanton, the house is only a couple of minutes’ walk from both the centre of the village with its wide range of facilities and, in the other direction, from Henry VIII’s picturesque St Mawes Castle. There are sea views from almost all rooms across St Mawes bay with its moorings and to St Anthony’s Headland opposite. The Lizard peninsula acts as a distant backdrop to a range of boatcraft plying the waters between St Mawes, Falmouth, Helford and beyond, including the popular St Mawes-Falmouth ferry. Tavern is also ideally placed for the beach, sitting as it does in the centre of the seafront houses lining the wall above the popular Tavern Beach and equidistant between both beach access points: it’s easy to see why Tavern gives its name to the beach.

Thought to date back to 16th century, it is a house full of character. Legend has it that the house was initially built as an inn to serve Henry VIII’s newly built castle and its visitors. The front door gives access to the hall and a curved coat cupboard, said to have been made from a boat hull. A large sitting room to the right of the hall has a range of comfortable sofas and chairs, a TV, DVD and French doors which open onto the sea views and seating in the front garden. Wifi is available. On the left of the hall is the dining room with table and chairs seating 8, again with French doors opening onto the front garden. The practical kitchen is well equipped with electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge and freezer and leads to the utility room which houses the washing machine, dryer and extra sink. A door from the kitchen gives access to a back garden which has steep steps to a small grassed area.

There is a downstairs wet room with shower, WC, hand basin and underfloor heating.

Stairs to the first floor lead to the spacious family bathroom, with its 6ft cast iron bath, WC and hand basin. There are 3 front bedrooms with lovely sea views (master bedroom with double kingsize bed; twin & single room). A fourth room with a double bed and a fifth room with a single bed (entered via the front twin) are at the back of the house.

There is a paved garden at the front with seating and extensive sea views. This is just the place to relax and watch the sea - or check out what is happening over the wall on the beach below.

Sleeping eight, this is a comfortable house which provides good versatile accommodation. 2018 is the first year Tavern has ever been on the rental market.

Parking is available in the village car park.

Please note that no dogs are allowed, the owner has one so please be mindful if you suffer from allergies

Fab house in a fab location :)

"Have stayed in quite a few cottages/houses in St Mawes in recent years and this has to be one of the best ones. Chose to stay at Tavern House due to location & number of bedrooms. Lovely clean house, large comfortable bedrooms with amazing sea views. (Need to put bedroom images of rooms onto website) Retro style kitchen, suited our needs. Spacious sitting room & dining room however sofas in sitting room need padding. Would suggest adding a shower over the bath. Weather was fab at beginning of our holiday which meant we could sit in the front garden listening to the waves below. Overall fab house and will definitely be back soon"
