    “We've stayed in a Sykes property before and have never been disappointed.”

    This holiday was no exception. The property was perfect for our needs and in an excellent location. It was of the usual high quality for a Sykes property.

The cottage

This charming Cornish cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Mevagissey, tucked away along a quiet pedestrian passageway within strolling distance from its working harbour.

You will feel instantly at home in this sweet little seaside cottage, refurbished to a high standard at the end of a terrace.

Enter through a large hall into a sitting room, stylish and cosy with plump sofas, exposed beams, panelling, books, games, DVD's and decorative nautical touches.

Find everything you need in the compact kitchen dining room to cook up a storm and seating for four at the dining table.

Head up the steep stairs to two peaceful bedrooms with seriously comfy beds and views over village roof tops.

For practicality there is a WC on the first floor and a modern shower room located on the ground floor.

Outside there is a small area leading to the front door with a raised flower bed and bench for morning coffee and sundowners.

Carefree Cottage sits away from the hustle and bustle yet is moments from the pubs, cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops which line the narrow, higgledy piggledy streets and cluster around the harbour walls.

Coastal hikes begin from the door.

Explore the scenic South West coast path which runs through the village and provides access to Mevagissey Beach which is dog friendly year round.

For those who prefer a wider stretch of sand, head for nearby Gorran Haven or Pentewan Beach which is excellent for swimming and water sports.

Hop on a ferry from the harbour to the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey and enjoy the natural beauty of the Cornish Riviera from the water.

Ideal for families, couples, walkers, beach-bunnies and foodies and dogs are welcome too!

About the location


St. Austell 5.5 miles; Truro 16 miles.

The perfect Cornish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour full of boats. Stunning walks lead along the coast in both directions, with sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village has an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, whilst just up the road are the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey also runs daily between Easter and September. Spend some time at the Tall Ships harbour at Charlestown (7 miles) with its shipwreck museum, or among the tropical biomes of the world-famous Eden Project (11 miles). The stunning coastline, fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula are a short drive down the coast while Truro, with its shops, restaurants, theatre and cathedral can be reached by car in half an hour.
