Bay View Cottage
This character semi-detached cottage is on a hill just a stone’s throw from the harbour in the pretty fishing village of Mevagissey. The front bay windows of this Mevagissey cottage have stunning views down into the harbour and also out across St. Austell Bay. The cottage has a spacious living room with a woodburning stove and a separate dining room. There is a stunning master bedroom featuring another set of bay windows with their own panoramic views, and two smaller bedrooms. The 18th century inner harbour in Mevagissey is lined with interesting shops, cafes and bars, and provides a lively centre which is less than 5 minutes' walk from this cottage. A ten minute drive from this Mevagissey cottage takes you to Pentewan Sands, where children will love the broad sandy beach, and just a little further on are the Lost Gardens of Heligan, one of the UK’s most interesting restored gardens with a unique story. There is plenty to see and do around St. Austell Bay, and this Mevagissey cottage provides an ideal base.
