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.

Previous visitors' comments about The Retreat:
The Retreat was an exceptional cottage with more facilities than you could wish for, including a hot tub. We had a great holiday.
Mr Pople, Crowborough, April 2013
A beautifully furnished home with so many added extras. Possibly one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in.
Mrs Gamble, Stonehouse, October 2012
The accommodation and welcome by the owners was lovely - the hot tub and sauna made a huge difference as the weather was not very good.
Mrs Rymer, Alton, October 2012
The location is great and the hot tub is good fun and great for relaxing.
