Guest Reviews


    • “This is a very cosy and home from home cottage which is perfectly situated in the harbour with an array of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Beautiful walks and scenery and everyone was really friendly.”

    Mrs Burke, Southampton, October 2015

    • “A really very nice old cottage that made us feel very much at home. There was a nice atmosphere and it was in a good location in the lovely town of Mevagissey. We would recommend it to anyone. The kitchen and lounge area was cosy, and the fireplace was useful for the evenings that were a bit chilly.”

    Mrs Pruyn-kruit, Arnhem, September 2015

    • “17 The Cliff had a wonderful atmosphere and was beautifully furnished and equipped. It was a wonderful base in a fascinating and scenic village with a working fishing harbour. We particularly enjoyed the deep window seats. It was also a bonus that the cottage is so central to the life of Mevagissey.”

    Miss Galambos, Tadley, July 2015

    • “We liked Mevagissey and the location of the cottage above the harbour. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped, it was lovely to have some outdoor space as the weather was very good. The local people were very friendly and it was a good place if you like real ale.”

    Mrs Poulter, Harrogate, June 2015

    • “The cottage is in a great location and we loved the upside down aspect. There were plenty of games for the evenings and we walked around the harbour during the day and most evenings. The coastal paths nearby are stunning. The décor was fabulous and the DVD's were a God send as my son was ill and happily lay on the sofa and watched films.”

    Ms Archer, Enfield, March 2015

    • “We found the whole experience to be excellent - very helpful owners and contact in the village, lovely décor and close to all amenities. Those in the village were friendly and helpful and we felt really at home. We would absolutely recommend to others - a real treat!”

About the location


St. Austell 5.5 miles; Truro 16 miles.

The perfect Cornish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour full of boats. Stunning walks lead along the coast in both directions, with sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village has an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, whilst just up the road are the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey also runs daily between Easter and September. Spend some time at the Tall Ships harbour at Charlestown (7 miles) with its shipwreck museum, or among the tropical biomes of the world-famous Eden Project (11 miles). The stunning coastline, fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula are a short drive down the coast while Truro, with its shops, restaurants, theatre and cathedral can be reached by car in half an hour.
