The Property

Once the home of Mevagissey's first bank, this imposing Grade II listed village-centre building has been renovated to a high standard, creating a Cornwall holiday cottage of comfort and character. Set over three floors, 100 yards from the harbour, the property retains many original features. The bedrooms are mainly over the ground and second floors, while the main, stylish living space occupies the first floor. The exquisite dining room, with parquet flooring, panelled walls and glazed ceiling, is overlooked by a balcony from the second floor. The harbour, pubs and restaurants of Mevagissey are all within a short stroll. Wander to the water's edge to watch the fishermen unload their catch, stroll along the coastal path on the headland or walk to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Alternatively, explore the Eden Project, the cathedral city of Truro or the beauty of the Roseland Peninsula and its beaches.
