This one-time fisherman's store is tucked away in a small courtyard, between the narrow main street and the picturesque harbour in the popular village of Mevagissey. This cosy Cornish holiday home has been furnished and decorated to a high standard, with some beams and other original features remaining, and an antique French bed and chandelier in one of the double rooms. Take a short stroll to the harbour to watch the boats come in, sample the selection of shops, pubs and restaurants Mevagissey has to offer, or drive the short distance to attractions such as the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan or the stunning coastline, fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. A superb maritime base for a truly Cornish experience.
