  • "This is our second holiday in this lovely cosy holiday cottage."

    We shared valuable time here with our daughter, son in law and granddaughters. The accommodation is in a perfect location for exploring Mevagissy, it is on the edge of SWCP and also very close to the beach. This light and airy property is very warm and comfortable. It is well maintained and has everything that you would need. The games room is a real bonus and was enjoyed by all. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, thank you. Owners live nearby and are very welcoming and supportive. Hopefully we will be back again sometime.

  • "Nice cottage with everything you would need for a holiday."

    Kitchen was well equip and location was very good for day trips out into the local area. We stayed with a young child and stairs down to Megavissey were a slight challenge, fine with a carrier but not suitable for a pushchair.

  • "Bayview is a great holiday cottage."

    It has everything you need. A home from home. Colin was very helpful when needed and kept in contact. The location is stunning, views were amazing and the access to the beach and harbour were great, certainly keeps you fit. I would highly recommend going.

  • "We loved our week at Bayview."

    The owner was very helpful ahead of our stay and was on hand if we had any questions. The property is spacious and well equipped. The games room was a big plus which set the place apart from other properties we have stayed at. The view of the sea from the front of the property was brilliant and a joy to wake up to each morning. The proximity to the beach at Polstreath is superb if you don't mind the 193 steps each way (our 4-year-old counted them!) and Mevagissey is a 10-minute walk down the hill in the opposite direction. Parking - especially if returning in the middle of the day - was sometimes a bit tricky as people seemed to use the road to park to go for a coastal walk or into Mevagissey. I would implore any future holidaymakers following their satnav to the house to not disbelieve the instruction to turn left at the Heligan crossroads on the way into Mevagissey as otherwise you'll end up right in the centre of the narrow streets of Mevagissey! We would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Bayview to anyone who wants to enjoy Cornwall.

  • "Our time in this wonderful cottage was fabulous."

    It was exactly what we were looking for. Close to the harbour where we got some really great food and close to other small harbours that we could go and visit. The views were excellent as well. We had 1 really rainy day but with the games room, we were never not entertained! This is on our list to visit again.

    Everything in the house was as described in the listing —- and the view on the sea is simply outstanding. It was also very nice to have a small bay just around the corner where you could swim and enjoy the ein - and the stairs down to the sea are simply a good exercise. The coastal walk also just passes the house which is very convenient when you like walking. Mevagissey downtown is only a 10minutes sightseeing walk away - also very convenient.

    Amazing view from the master bedroom - watched dolphins swimming past one day. The only thing I would suggest is a heater for the games room to make it more comfortable in colder months - there's currently no heating in there. The owner took the time to check things were okay for us during Storm Eunice which was appreciated. We really enjoyed our stay.

    The house was well maintained and very clean. All furniture was of good quality. The views were fantastic. We arrived in 2 cars and although it is street parking we didn’t have a problem finding a spot. Weather was very mixed while we were there and the games room was well used. A lovely walk into Mevagissey (quite steep) if walking back when it’s dark remember your torch ! Great communication with the owner who only lived a few minutes away and was on hand if there were any problems. Highly recommended property - we’ll be back !

The property

With stunning, far-reaching sea views from most of its rooms, this tastefully furnished holiday home is located on the coast in the historic fishing port of Mevagissey, just a short walk along a footpath from the village.

Overlooking a large grassed area with a children's playground, this is the perfect setting for family holidays throughout the year.

There are 3 bedrooms; the master on the first floor benefitting from an en-suite bathroom with a bath to enjoy a luxurious soak after a day on the beach, a double with superb views over the coast and a bunk room for the children situated next to the ground floor bathroom.

The sitting room also enjoys sea views, with a log burner adding to the character and comfort.

A large games room has been created especially with the children in mind but with a multi games table offering table tennis, pool and air hockey everybody will be entertained.

At the side and accessed from the kitchen / diner is a quiet and private patio area to enjoy alfresco dining.

A walk across the green opposite will take you to the footpath which winds down to the village where a fine selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants catering for all tastes or simply enjoy fish and chips sat on the harbour wall.

With beaches, fishing and boat trips all available close by there will always be so much to do here but a short drive away will take you to the two leading tourist attractions in the county, The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, both well worth a visit.

A well-equipped cottage in a wonderful coastal location.
