This charming terraced cottage is situated on a narrow, winding street in the heart of the busy working fishing village of Mevagissey, in south Cornwall. Just a two minute walk from the picturesque harbour, where fishermen still land their catches and mend nets on the quayside, this Mevagissey cottage is tucked away, but is easily accessible to everything the village offers. This cosy Cornwall cottage has a lovely, welcoming feel as soon as you walk in and has been furnished to a good standard, with a galley kitchen, and a sitting room with sash windows that offer tempting views across the village, to the lighthouse and the sea. Completing the accommodation at this delightful Mevagissey cottage are a double bedroom and shower room, which is reached via a traditional enclosed staircase. Within walking distance of this Mevagissey cottage are many cafes, where you can spend time relaxing and watching the boats in the harbour, or exploring a whole range of galleries and craft shops, antiques shops and pottery. The village also boasts three delightfully old-fashioned pubs, and a variety of affordable restaurants. For the more actively inclined, Mevagissey sits astride the South West Coast Path, one of Britain's finest walks, and there are a huge variety of watersports available, including surfing, windsurfing, sea canoeing, water skiing and sailing. The nearby beaches and coves are a delight, and are within easy reach by walking, by car, or by the local bus that stops just two minutes away from Cosy Cottage. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are close by, and the world-famous Eden Project and historic Charlestown, with its square-rigged tall ships, are a short distance away. This superb Mevagissey Cottage is an ideal base, whether for a typically active Cornish seaside holiday, or for a truly relaxing romantic break.
