  • "After a long journey, we arrived to be greeted by milk in the fridge, tea bags, fresh eggs and bread."

    The perfect way to start our break. The cottage was also warm and the lovely owner had ensured we had outside lights on so we could access the place easily. The facilities are very good with the added bonus on an enclosed garden which was perfect for our two dogs to roam safely. This is a wonderful place to stay for a couple and to explore the glorious coastline of Cornwall.

  • "Lovely cottage but rather smaller than expected."

    It is advertised for sleeping three, but I think it would be a tight squeez for three people. Fortunately there was only two of us and one small dog, so we managed ok. The garden is lovely and very dog friendly and the parking was excellent. The property was spotless and had every thing you needed. And Tracy provided a lovely welcome pack of eggs, bread, butter, milk and cookies. Whic was moste appreciated, thanks you.

    It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. It is in an ideal location, with plenty of attractions and beaches within easy reach. We also appreciated the clear instructions provided by the owners, which explained everything we could wish for. One final comment is that we would highly recommend Heligan Cottage for anyone taking a holiday with their dog/dogs. Simply ideal.

  • "Beautiful cottage, lovely and clean."

    Lots of off road parking with a big garden. Host Tracey couldn’t have been more helpful. Sited in a perfect position for lots of dog friendly beaches, our favourite was Gorran Haven. Only slight negative is the bedrooms are quite small, but not a problem for a week’s stay.

  • "This is our 2nd vist to Heligan cottage, a beautiful well presented and fully equipped cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, beautiful gardens and dog friendly. Tracey is a fantastic host, really helpful and thoughtful, on arrival she had left us a hamper, with everything you would need at the end of your journey, tea etc, some lovely scones, jam and clotted cream and some beautiful flowers from the garden. Infact we're already planning to return in 2024, hopefully with my new puppy. Outstanding cottage, fantastic host, what more would you want

  • "We had a lovely time but found the cottage a little small compared to others we have stayed in."

    The seating in the sitting room was also small but the owner kindly replaced it with something more comfortable. Probably the best feature was a comfortable and fully secure outside garden which was perfect for our little dog.

  • "The cottage was wonderful."

    It was ideal for the two of us and the two dogs. It was warm, cozy, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden was great, it is sheltered and catches the sun and the outdoor seating meant we were able to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather by sitting outside in February. The dogs were able to wander freely in the garden and the gates secured the garden and the ample parking. So impressed we booked another holiday here during our stay.

  • "We had a very pleasant week early October."

    Quite cool when we arrived (not unexpected for time of year). Owners helpfully adjusted heating but we would have preferred to have some way of doing so oursleves - especially as the weather improved later in the week.

    Thank you for your feed back. The heating control is now located in the kitchen area so it can be altered as and when required. Best wishes, Tracey Property Owner

    On arrival Tracey had left a tray of essentials ie teabags, milk and some lovely eggs fresh from their chickens,but beware of Nigel the Cockerell,he likes to let you know he's there lol. A nice and peaceful, relaxing week, beautiful well laid out lawns and seating areas. We'll definitely be back in 2023.

The property

Mevagissey 3.1 miles.

Tucked away in the rural village of St Ewe in Cornwall, rests this charming, detached home, Heligan Cottage.

Just moments away the harbourside village of Mevagissey and the dramatic Cornish coast, this single-storey cottage is idyllic for a family of three and their canine companion.

Be greeted by ample off-road parking before stepping inside to discover the bright and airy open-plan layout.

Conjure up mouth-watering dishes in the kitchen area with an electric oven and hob to assist you and when meals are piping hot, settle down at the dining table and make a toast to a wonderful getaway.

Unwind on the sofa to the make most of the Smart TV or curl up with good book in hand to relish the rural location.

On sunny days, venture out into the spacious garden, where you can savour the last of the days sunshine with your favourite tipple; afterwards retreat into the warmth for a soak in the family bathroom.

When eyes grow heavy, choose between two adorned bedrooms, with a double and a single bedroom to rest your head.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
