    “The cottage itself was in a lovely location and very convenient.”

    It had been done up beautifully however lacking a few final touches. Firstly the cottage advertises a courtyard which really is not somewhere you would sit an enjoy it absolutely stinks of wee from dogs and needs a good jet wash! Our dog wouldn’t even wee out there I can only assume this was down to the stench! The owner could do with making the court are more user friendly and putting a proper fence in as advertised as dog friendly but dogs could easily get out if they wanted! ...

    It had been done up beautifully however lacking a few final touches. Firstly the cottage advertises a courtyard which really is not somewhere you would sit an enjoy it absolutely stinks of wee from dogs and needs a good jet wash! Our dog wouldn’t even wee out there I can only assume this was down to the stench! The owner could do with making the court are more user friendly and putting a proper fence in as advertised as dog friendly but dogs could easily get out if they wanted! Secondly as soon as you walk in the cottage your greeted with the damp smell I appreciate it’s an old building etc but it wouldn’t hurt to buy a couple of diffusers to take that instant stench away. Thirdly the lounge rug is filthy and needs a very good wash! Fourth point to note absolutely no cleaning equipment left, other than a broken hoover which was no good for hoovering up the spiders that were there on arrival and remove webs which for future note I think the cleaners should remove. Fifth and last point a welcome pack would be nice a pint of milk and teabags is just a nice little touch maybe even a couple of scones always goes down well. Overall the cottage was comfortable and the location was perfect just a few points to note to make it a 10/10 as it’s not far away. The harbour is said it’s wonderful a lovely Dog friendly welcoming place.

    Thank you for your comments which I have noted and wish to respond to. Sorry to hear you felt the newly installed fence was not sufficient for your pet’s needs, I have had many pets staying in the cottage with their owners and you are the first to make comment regarding the fence. I have now made adjustments to the fence. The courtyard is being pressure washed within the week, Thank you for bringing this to my attention as with all the bookings and quick change over finding time to do this before now has been difficult. We ask guests not to allow their pets to urinate on the courtyard, there is an outside tap for any accidents. As you walk out of the front door of the cottage you are on the start of the coastal walk with lots of places to explore and walk your pets. As for the broken vacuum I will investigate, my cleaner does not use this vacuum and to be honest it shouldn't be there. I wanted Harbour Retreat to be a place for people to bring their pets and not having carpets makes it easier to clean, all the floors are either wood or tiled and I designed it this way for hygiene reasons. There are brooms and dustpans within the cottage. I have provided welcome packs before and even gave Fortnum & Mason hampers to several peak season bookings but not 1 person made a kind remark or thank you. I am glad you found the cottage comfortable and you thought it was renovated to a good standard and I do agree, it is a great location. I do have plans to upgrade the courtyard for next season with a covered area with seating, soft furnishings and some fun outside lighting. Thanks Again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Set in the heart of Mevagissey where the harbour, beach, shops, pubs and restaurants are all only a few minutes easy walk away this beautifully renovated charming old cottage is ideally placed to enjoy all this magical village and thriving fishing port has to offer.

Set over three floors the cottage exudes character throughout.

Enter into the cosy yet contemporary open-plan living room with a log burner at each end, ideal for the cooler winter nights after a long walk along the adjacent coastal path or a stroll on the beach.

The utility room then leads out to the enclosed courtyard with a shed for storage etc.

On the first floor are two of the bedrooms, a king-size and a adult bunk bedroom as well as the family shower room.

On the second floor a flight of steep stairs lead to the beautifully decorated master double bedroom to complete the accommodation.

Dogs are so very welcome here with baskets, bowls and blankets provided along with an outside tap in the courtyard for washing down after coming back from the beach.

With a such a wide choice of things to do here for all the family, virtually on the doorstep you will very rarely need a car but close by are the Lost Gardens of Heligan voted one of the finest tourist attractions in the Country and well worth a visit.

Boat trips from the harbour itself are also strongly recommended.

Just one of the many pubs and restaurants close by is the oldest pub in Mevagissey, the Fountain Inn located just 25 yards away where apart from good food and fine local ales every Monday is the home to the famous Mevagissey male voice choir.

Come and listen to sea shanties and local songs for a night to remember.

With so much to do and see in the immediate vicinity this character cottage offers really comfortable accommodation in a wonderful seaside location.
