  • "Lovely stay but hot water supply was worse than usual and disposal of refuse non existent, we actually took some to the household refuse site at St Austell, other refuse we located a part empty bin, you can’t store it in the property as this would soon make the property smell, but saying all this we are returning next year but hope these problems can be resolved."

    Many thanks

  • "Lovely cottage, great improvement of the bathroom,carpet on landing badly stained, I had to wash cups before we could use them as they were not very clean, same with a couple of plates."

    The tv was again, a nightmare to use, very confusing, I noticed in visitors book it had been mentioned too. Overall a lovely stay and will book it again.

  • "Kips is a cute, quirky cottage and so deserves some love and attention."

    The stains on the landing unfortunately still remain, the downstairs light still doesnt work, neither does the DVD player or the heated towel rail (the latter of which was reported to the owner via text but no reply was received). No starter bag of logs (again reported to owner). Covid essentials largely ignored, save for a note asking guests to remove bed linen prior to departure - no hand sanitizer, disinfectant, rubber gloves as recommended by yourselves. Books and DVDs still in situ although Sykes recommend these should be removed. Finally, the carpark isnt discounted and never has been. Owners of Willow Car park have explained to guests of this cottage numerous times but still Sykes advertise a "discounted rate". We love Mevagissey but we won't be returning to Kips Cottage or using Sykes in the future.

    ?there's no out side for dogs to go and pee ect instead other guests that have stayed previous with pets have let them use the landing as a tiolet stains all along the landing and on the stairs . The cottage has very low ceilings and very few lights that work making it dark.The Television remote dosent work properly and the screen isent set right . I will not be booking again as we felt we had been mislead would not recommend .

  • "A fan would be useful for the bedrooms in the summer months, the tumble dryer is very dirty, needs to be properly cleaned before it can be used."

    The towels are very old and need replacing, after using once they smelled of sweat. The bathroom floor lyno has buckled probably water underneath, the carpets were heavily soiled in patchy areas on the landing and stairs. A lot of dust on top of the wardrobe in the main bedroom and blankets in lounge need replacing. We enjoyed our stay despite the above detailed information, the cottage was in an ideal location for us.

  • "Kips cottage is a lovely little fisherman's cottage in the heart of Mevagissey."

    Unfortunately although superficially clean could do with a deep clean and a bit of tlc, for instance lights not working in the lounge and the tv remote batteries falling out when you pick it up. Having stayed in other accomodation since the start of the pandemic there was no evidence of additional sanitisation as there has been in other places we have stayed, the blankets laid over the back of the sofa were filthy and there was no hand sanitiser anywhere in the accomodation . In addition, there is no outside space which is not made clear in the listing, so you either have to be in the cottage or in the village. The facilities are adequate, however we would not recommend to anyone with a dog or with children. The only save in grace, and what made our holiday was the cottages close proximity to the harbour.

  • "The place is rather smaller than appears in pictures, however this in no way stopped us from enjoying the wonderful place."

    It's so well located, a beautiful cottage in a wonderful village, brilliant hosts who were very responsive and the fire was lovely on cold dark evenings. Don't forget to bring extra bits during pandemic, we stocked up on logs and toilet paper! Kitchen has all the utensils you'll need. There a lots to explode right on your doorstep! Brilliant value for money too.

  • "Instructions for tv very vague, had to telephone owner, could only get now channels, tv remote falling apart, these are very minor issues that did not interfere with our stay too much, lovely quirky cottage."

    toilet may be a challenge for larger and taller people.

The property

Set in the heart of the charming village and fishing port of Mevagissey, Kips Cottage is a delightful 300-year-old cottage set over three floors and full of character.

Just two-miles away is the lovely beach at Pentewan, making Kips Cottage a perfect base for a quiet coastal break in Cornwall.

Enter the cottage and be welcomed straight into the beautifully furnished open-plan living space, with a mix of parquet wood flooring and classic tiling underfoot, you can find a woodburning stove in the sitting area to warm you on cooler nights, and a homely feel throughout.

A TV is perched in the corner for entertainment, whilst the dining table presents a lovely spot to come together at the end of the day when you're not dining out in Mevagissey.

Rustle up some delicious dishes or picnics in the neat, contemporary kitchen with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge at your fingertips.

On the first floor you can find the lovely single bedroom and the shared shower room which has vibrant blue tiles, while the second floor is home to the double bedroom with a delightful seaside theme and decorative wall-mounted oars.

Step onto the narrow and winding streets of Mevagissey and experience what makes this such a well-loved destination, finding all you need within walking distance, you can head down to the inner harbour and watch the boats come and go, or arrange an exciting fishing trip for keen anglers, as well as a ferry available from here which can take you to the historic, bustling port town of Fowey, making an excellent day trip.

In Mevagissey the streets are lined with gift shops, craft workshops, galleries, quaint cafés and historical pubs.

Dine out at one of the many excellent restaurants here too, or indulge in everybody's favourite supper, fish and chips from the local chip shop.

A host of leading Cornish attractions lie in the surrounding area, including the Eden Project with its two incredible and large biomes hosting a tropical and mediterranean climate with thousands of plants, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan which sees beautiful nature-inspired sculptures rest within the landscaped gardens for you to spot.
