    “We're seasoned travellers in Cornwall and also veterans of renting holiday cottages, with that experience we would say that Harlyn rates highly in many respects of what the average couple or family would want out of a holiday home for a week or two.”

    It is a comfortable house with lots of seating options both inside and in the well cared for garden. The familiar scourge of Cornish seaside villages is narrow access roads and lack of resonable parking next to the holiday home, this is not an issue at Harlyn. The WiFi was reliable and had a decent signal strength. The house owners live very close by and are both friendly and accomodating, e.g. we asked to enter the house early to drop of perishable supplies into the fridge and freezer and this was no problem. The less positive is that the kitchen is relatively small and although the built in refridgerator is adequate it is not big enough to take a full week's supplies, mostly necessarily bought ~7 miles away at St Austell's supermarkets, especially if you want to get lots of cold drinks in there as well. There is a freezer out in the adjacent conservatory and it would improve things if this was a fridge/freezer. We are keen hikers and being away from home for over 2 weeks we needed to use the washing machine which works fine but did not offer a drying option; we had great sunny weather with a breeze so drying outside was not a problem. A damp week could give a family some challenges. Access to the house is via relatively narrow slate steps or less steps and a concrete path, the less fit, elderly and infirm would find these difficult with luggage. Mevagissey's pubs and shops are at least a 10 minute hike away down steep hills whichever of 4 possible pedestrian routes you take, add another 5 minutes for the return trip. Notwithstanding the debatable points on what business and customers feel is value for money, Harlyn is good value, however, Mevagissey has evolved into a "pricey" seaside holiday town (as have many other resorts throughout the UK) and food, and most especially costs for drinks at pubs and restaurants, are high such that what were once very lively and sociable pubs right up to closing time are now relatively quiet after the main food sevice period is over at ~9.00 PM. If you have never been, don't let any of the above put you off, Mevagissey and the coastal walks and sights within 15 miles are not to be missed, just go self catering and buy your food and drink from the supermarkets.

The property

Situated on the easily accessible side of Mevagissey, this traditional, single-storey house sits in a quiet cul-de-sac, on the edge of the fishing village of Mevagissey.

Light and spacious, and offering three bedrooms, one with an en-suite, this Mevagissey cottage provides a comfortable holiday home for a family looking to stay in this charming area of Cornwall.

The sitting room with dining area is perfect for everyone to gather together, whilst the attached sun room and the separate conservatory both offer wonderful places to relax, perhaps with a book as the sun circles this homely Mevagissey cottage throughout the day.

The picturesque quay is a popular feature of Mevagissey, where you find plenty of boats bobbing along the shore, and streets lined with gift shops, restaurants and bars, open all year round.

For a complete contrast of scenery, within a short drive of this Mevagissey cottage are a number of gardens to explore, including the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the exotic blooms at the Eden Project and the charming woodlands of Caerhays Castle.

Families will love to visit the various attractions in the area from the Shipwreck Centre in romantic Charlestown to the Wheal Martyn china clay museum and the World of Model Railways.

Sandy beaches are plentiful in this part of Cornwall, and so from this Mevagissey cottage there is something for everyone to enjoy, rain or shine.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 2919, together they sleep 7.

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.
