    “Amazing Cottage in Exceptional Location”

    My family and I visited Mevagissey in late June and stayed in Mum’s cottage for 6 days whilst attending the famous Mevagissey feast week. The ground-floor cottage interior consists of a homely living room with beautiful, comfortable furniture and a log fireplace, which feels very homely. A large bright dining room with lovely decor, log fireplace and a large dining table with matching fabric chairs, and a spacious kitchen with lots of fitted storage in a blue / bronze themed unit, a large fridge freezer, oven (with grill), microwave, kitchen hob and enough cutlery / cooking utensils to feed a large family. Moving on up the stairs to the first floor we were greeted with 1 spacious double room with a very comfortable double bed, ample drawer storage space and a large wardrobe. Next to this room is a bunk bed room designed for kids fitted with a sink and further to the right is a spacious twin room fitted with drawer storage, bedside table and a sink. Finally, to the far left you’ll find a modernised, chrome themed, bathroom with walk-in shower (containing a non-slip mat), sink, toilet and a heated towel rack. Moving up the stairs once again to the second floor and you’ll find a spacious king-size bedroom with a wardrobe, sofa, 2 bedside tables and an en-suite bathroom with similar design to the one on the first-floor but what really gave this room it’s feel was the breathtaking view of the harbour from the window. Moving outside of the cottage it quickly became evident how well this cottage was located. The harbour was a 30 second walk from the cottage with the central shopping area a mere 2 minute walk down the pathway. There are an abundance of restaurants surround the cottage each with unique cuisines and dishes. The fish is caught locally and tasted very fresh. We consumed a lot of sea-food during our trip and miss the crab / lobster we had in Mevagissey. For those of you two like to indulge in the odd beverage, there are several pubs across the harbour front and also a few down the road in the centre. We visited all of them on our trip and found the locals and bar staff to be very friendly. If this is your thing then I recommend the Ship Inn which does a nice pint of locally brewed Tribute. There are also a few cafes offering delicious scones provided with Cornish cream, tea/coffee and a range of other cakes. There are two shops selling a variety of freshly baked Cornish pastries which I found deliciously tasty! Want to venture outside of Mevagissey? Well there is a lovely beach just up the road called Pentewan which we loved because it wasn’t too crowded. Also, if you walk down the shoreline to the far right there is a beautiful section of beach between the rocks which we felt was a perfect place to take some pictures as a family. For you nature lovers, there’s the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan which are a short drive away. If you need a regularly supermarket then Asda is a 15 / 20 min drive away and is open 24 hours on the weekdays which is really convenient, especially if you’re looking to save money and cook at the cottage. Overall, I would highly recommend Mum’s cottage, it had everything we needed and ended up being one of our best trips away from home.
