The property

A dormer bungalow on the outskirts of Mevagissey in a quiet road overlooking a grassy common and St. Austell Bay. This family-sized holiday cottage has a sitting room with sea views, a well-fitted kitchen with a breakfast area and three bedrooms, two of them benefiting from sea views. This Mevagissey cottage has a sunny courtyard garden and easy access to the coastal path which runs within yards of the cottage, meaning that Polstreath Beach can be reached by a short walk. Mevagissey harbour is just a five minute walk away from this lovely Cornwall cottage and visitors will find plenty to amuse the family, including an aquarium, a model railway centre, shops and cafés and of course the hustle and bustle of a traditional Cornish working harbour. There are plenty of attractions within an easy drive of this Mevagissey cottage including, Caerhays Castle, the UK's only mining heritage centre at Wheal Martyn, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre. Of course, Cornwall is also home to many safe, clean beaches and cosy welcoming pubs, making this Mevagissey cottage a wonderful base for an active family holiday.

    • “Excellent location with wonderful views. the 10 minutes to the town ( which is downhill!) is compensated by the views when waking up in the morning...or sitting with a drink in the evening. Great location for visiting The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project...plus St Ives and St Michaels Mount can all be done from here. Good quality furnishings and decor,well equipped an had all we needed...including Wi fi”

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.
