A Place Called Place!


From St Mawes there is a wonderful view across to a place called Place. With the land sloping away to the estuary features of this Grade 1 listed house can be glimpsed, partially visible. Built in 1861 by Sir Thomas Spry in the style of a French Chateau. Sadly not open to the public other than on special occasions.

There is a ferry from St Mawes which crosses from the harbour and operates seven days a week during the summer months to Place Creek on the Rosalind Peninsula.

Behind the house is Place Church which has been described as the best example in Cornwall of what parish church were like in the 12th and 13th centuries. The church is opened daily so do take a look inside.  Continue on and there is a lovely walk along the headland which will ultimately take you to the St Anthony’s Lighthouse.




I am an enthusiastic professional in estate agency and property management business. I have purchased, renovated, rented and sold property. I give advice and guidance both to students and first time buyers and those leaving home for the first time. I have four books selling on Amazon currently and almost finished the fifth. I decided as a form of relaxing to start writing a blog about everything coastal, so here it is!
