The Fort House

Dog Friendly
Standing guard over the Fal Estuary, St Mawes Castle was built in the 16th century...

as part of Henry VIII’s chain of fortresses to defend the south coast from Spanish and French invasion. With its clover shape and elaborate decorations of friendly gargoyles and carved inscriptions, St Mawes Castle is the most unusual and bestpreserved of these coastal forts. The cottage also played a part in defending the Fal Estuary during the Second World War when, due to its commanding position, it was used as an observation point. Discover the idyllic town of St Mawes, with its historic harbour, rock pools and sandy beaches only a short walk away. Alternatively, take the ferry, or for the more adventurous, a paddle board, to Falmouth town and explore the harbour front with seafood sellers, craft shops, restaurants and bars. Previous guests will recognise a difference in the Fort House, not only have we given it a face lift turning it white as the rest of St Mawes but it has also had new living and bedroom furniture to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
