Located in the heart of the ever-popular fishing port and village of Mevagissey, this beautifully-restored old terraced cottage is ideally located to experience all that makes the village so special, as well as being an ideal base for touring South Cornwall’s wonderful coastline.
As soon as you enter the cottage, you are immediately taken by the homely, welcoming and luxurious feel that exudes throughout.
Set over three floors, the ground floor offers a sociable open plan layout with sitting and dining areas with slate floors, and a cosy woodburner adding comfort and character, extending onto the very well-equipped kitchen.
Stairs lead up to the first bedroom where a choice of a super king-size double or twin is offered.
The bathroom sits conveniently next to this bedroom and then it’s up a few more stairs to the second floor where a king-size double bedroom has the added benefit of its own en-suite shower room.
Mevagissey is a thriving village with an old-fashioned, characterful atmosphere that still pervades the narrow streets and winding alleys, with countless legends and tales of smuggling tucked away along the secret passages.
The harbour provides safe refuge for boats, and is normally packed with fishing boats landing their daily catch, and there are plenty of seafood restaurants where you can taste the fresh local produce, before heading back to cottage along the harbour.
With all this quaint village has to offer set practically on the doorstep, along with the wonderful coast and plentiful beaches waiting to be explored, this really is the ideal base for a wonderful holiday, whatever time of year.
