The village also has two public houses, and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops. St Mawes has long been one of the West Country’s more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi’s Hotel Tresanton and the recently re-modelled Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club.
In a wider context, Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance offering a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Tate Gallery, Truro Cathedral.

This highly desirable property has a friendly atmosphere and offers versatile family sized accommodation, which caters for modern lifestyle living. Notable features are the bespoke fitted kitchen and day room, cinema/media room, study/secondary sitting room, spectacular upper and lower hallways, separate bedroom annexe, 5 bedrooms in the main residence all with en suite facilities, first floor balcony serving two principal bedrooms, and surrounding landscaped gardens, designed to make the most of the stunning vista. The property is creatively designed and flows beautifully, connecting to the gardens and parking facilities at both ground floor and upper floor levels.
The Mount is located in a southerly aspect which captures unparalleled views over the Percuil River, St Mawes harbour and village, to the unspoilt National Trust countryside of the St Anthony Headland beyond, and over to Falmouth Bay, to the English Channel and Lizard Peninsula. A variety of sailing and marine activity is regularly on display.
According to previous owners and clients, The Mount was originally built in 1846 and owned by the Duke Of Buckingham. It was extended, we believe, in the late 1950’s to early 1960’s. One part of the property used to be the local doctors. The property remained in the ownership of a local family for a number of years. Our clients purchased it in need of restoration in early 2017. Under planning permission PA17/030789 (a variant of previously granted planning permission PA14/07134), our clients have, over the last year or so, painstakingly converted, re-modelled and refurbished The Mount to quality standards as seen today. When possible, local tradesmen and building products have been sourced locally.
Set at a realistic guide price, The Mount is a perfect holiday home that is equally suitable for permanent occupation. Viewing internally is strongly recommended.
