The property

Mevagissey 3.1 miles.

Nestled within the endearing village of St Ewe and just moments away from the attractive harbourside village of Mevagissey and the dramatic Cornish coast is Heligan Cottage, a single-storey cottage offering an exceptional self-catering experience to one of the finest locations in Cornwall.

This superb find is perfect for romantics or small families to call home, as they enjoy the surrounding area, littered with a plethora of things to see and do, including the nearby Lost Gardens Heligan attraction.

Inside, the original character features coupled with contemporary styling and all the modern conveniences you would expect, offer a warm and welcoming space to return to at the end of each day.

Gather within the open-plan living space, where the oak fronted kitchen suite is certain to encourage a spot of home-cooking, with the dining table making a great social spot for relishing in each other’s company over a bottle of wine or two.

Relax into your evening as you curl up on the quirky L-shape sofa and flick through the channels of the Smart TV to find your entertainment, or use this space to delve into that book you have been meaning to read.

From here, a small hallway grants access to the family bathroom, featuring a shower over bath, the bunk bedroom, compete with its own TV with DVD and Freeview, as well as the master suite, boasting a sumptuous double bedroom and good wardrobe storage.

The garden at Heligan Cottage is as equally as wonderful, with large lawn areas for the younger guests of the group and your canine companions to play freely, whilst you savour the sunshine with a glass of something refreshing on the patio area with furniture.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming oasis, meander through the village to find the renowned 16th-century village pub, which serves food with a local seasonal influence or you could venture further afield to the village of Mevagissey, where you will find plenty of places to eat and drink, including pubs for a Sunday roast or restaurants to sample that classic British seaside staple.

Be sure to meander the village to soak up its quintessential ambiance, before visiting the seafront aquarium with its small collection of marine life, brushing up on the local history with a visit to Mevagissey Museum and make your way up to the Mevagissey World of Model Railways.

Also nearby is the enchanting Lost Gardens of Heligan, which the cottage was named after, boasting over 200 acres of garden history, mystery and romance to uncover.

Beachcombers can look forward to soaking up the sunshine from the sandy bays of St Austell, Whitsand and Gerrans, whilst the quaint unspoilt fishing villages and harbours of Gorran Haven, Polperro and Looe all hold their own unique charm and promise to be wonderful afternoons out.

Travel further afield to find the bustling resort of Newquay, where you will find even more family-friendly attractions, as well as an endless supply of rolling surf or you could simply watch the boats at anchor in the waterfront communities of Falmouth and Fowey.

Bring your loved ones to Heligan Cottage to share a memorable getaway.
