Update April 2022

I reviewed these notes in the Spring of 2022.. The Percuil River may be getting a wee bit crowded these days, Saint Mawes certainly is on summer weekends. I've only updated prices but am enquiring about space up the river.
Cellars Beach 2021

I've checked with the local authorities about this beach. It belongs to the Place Estate and, I am told that you would be asked to relocate if you anchored here - Tyro was possibly fortunate that nobody noticed him when he anchored here.

I reviewed these notes at the end of March 2021. The prices are those for 2020 but will be updated if they change for this year and we are checking on local information about anchoring in Cellars Beach but, for the moment we can find no restrictions on anchoring there
Cellars Beach

Inshore of the moorings opposite the village is a possible anchorage for a smallish bilge keeler. The bottom is quite good mud if you can find a gap in the weed, and, unlike the moorings in the middle of the creek, it's completely sheltered from the SW. The locals, I'm told, object if you go too far in, but I've seen a boat beached near HW and getting antifouled there.

The more conventional anchorage is nearer the village, but more exposed and not far from some very sharp-looking rocks.

St Mawes took a bit of damage this winter but nothing significant and all will be well for the summer. No changes to the 2013 prices
