Buying Agent in St Mawes, Cornwall

St Mawes is a small Cornish village that lies on the Roseland Peninsula, in a sheltered bay – in what is claimed as the third largest natural harbour in the world. With a population of under 1000, property is inevitably hard to come by, and working with a Buying Agent in St Mawes who knows the area well and can hunt down properties that aren’t always advertised on the open market is helping more and more buyers secure their dream homes in this area.

St Mawes lies within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty being dominated by St. Mawes Castle built by Henry V111 to protect against invaders from France and Spain. It was once a busy fishing port, but trade declined during the 20th century and although there is still a small fishing fleet because of its location and charming Regency architecture, tourism is now the main occupation.
