"We loved our stay at Nectan."
It was comfortable and had everything you needed for a fantastic break. Would recommend it for sure.The owners were helpful and available if needed. I cant praise it high enough.
"Lovely week's stay in a very wet and windy November!"
Comfortable warm house, home from home atmosphere with extras like games, jigsaws, board games, books, DVDs. Kitchen very well equipped. Welcome pack of milk, bread, butter, beans etc was a lovely surprise. Great south facing patio overlooking fields. Robin and Rosey really welcoming and helpful. Hill down to the village centre really steep and would be too challenging for those with mobility issues. Recommend driving round the back lanes rather than the single track road down (unless you like reversing up round a steep bend!). Very dog friendly pubs. Highly recommended.
"We had a fabulous stay at nectan and the cottage was very well set up for our holiday."
We would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here.
"We had a lovely week at Nectarn."
Mevagissey is a beautiful place to visit lots to see and do both in Meva and the surrounding areas. Robin and Rosie were really helpful particularly with directions avoiding the village, thank you! The cottage is lovely really warm with everything you could want. Yes, there’s a steep hill to walk up but by the end of the week you don’t even notice it - honest!!! Thank you.
"This small but perfectly formed property, was lovely and very cosy."
The owners were such lovely and caring people and always on hand if there was any thing we needed. The property is in prime position with things like Helegon Gardens, 5 minutes round the corner. We would happily go again.
"A lovely welcome pack awaited us as we entered the kitchen."
A glass of wine much appreciated after a 6 hour drive. The house was clean and cosy. The garden perfect for our little dog. Everything we needed to prepare meals was there and the beds comfortable. Steep but easy walk into town for coffee and cakes. Thank you.
"Nectan is a real home from home, everything you need is thought of and a nice welcome package of milk, bread, crisps, butter, a tin of beans and some wine was left for us."
The owners were very friendly and they gave us good places to visit in the area. Bedding was a good quality and the towels were perfect, they were big enough to fit around the average human and some spare!! The walk to the harbour and back is on a very steep hill so please be aware of this as this could hinder your enjoyment if your mobility is impaired. All in all a fabulous holiday from the booking process to checking out.
"Perfect little getaway with adequate facilities."
Tv remote didnt work very well though and I found the bed a touch too hard but these are small things that didnt affect the holiday. Great shower very powerful. Nice little welcome pack from the owner who was very helpful and friendly. I would warn anyone who struggles a bit with fitness to be wary of tregony Hill where the house is. Its incredibly steep from the town centre to the house. Walking is best though avoid driving in the town as the streets are tiny and there is nowhere to go if you meet another car. We used the other end of the road which are tiny back roads but found those better and less dangerous than the town with its tiny streets and vast amounts of tourists. Overall a lovely place but tricky for cars.
"We had a great week at this property."
Our stay coincided with Feast Week which was great seeing locals having fun. The only downside is the walk up the hill which is difficult for anyone with dodgy knees or backs. We found it easier to drive the long way down to the village car park, walk to the harbour and shops and then drive back! Definitely take the longer route to the property as the village streets are difficult to navigate. This is a lovely place for exploring and so dog friendly. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners are very friendly and left a lovely welcome gift.
"We was happy with property our other couple found bed upstairs uncomfortable which they bot had pain killers as got up each morning complaining in pain, and floor joist made horrid noise when walking about upstairs, we all loved place clean tidy , if you have walking issues its at top of very steep hill would not recommend."
"A very nice property, clean and comfortable."
A well equipped kitchen. A pretty outlook over the countryside and very peaceful and although up a hill only a 10 min walk into the village. The owners were lovely - very friendly and accommodating. We would happily recommend this holiday accommodation.
"We had a lovely stay at Nectan."
The owners were welcoming, and helpful when asked anything. Though they are living next door, it didn't feel intrusive or awkward. The accommodation had everything we needed for the two week stay. Our only problem, and it is a minor detail, we struggled to reach anything in the wall cupboards as they are placed unusually high on the wall. I am not of short stature, and I could barely reach, because of this we were limited with storage options for our food. Could have done with a step stool. Overall it was a very pleasant stay. The garden was great for our two small dogs. We were blessed with fantastic weather. Mevagissey didn't disappoint on any level. Virtually everywhere is dog friendly, and there were lots of the furry beasts wherever you ventured.
....exactly as described. Owners on hand if needed....but not needed, everything worked or there were instructions. Clean and tidy with all you could need on holiday. Board games were used each evening....great addition to property. Sea view from garden....could check to see if rain on way in!!
"Great location with a parking space and a short walk to the harbour."
Lovely views of countryside at the back and the sea to the side. Warm and cosy with a well equipped kitchen. The welcome pack was lovely and much appreciated! The owners were welcoming but not intrusive. All in all a great cottage.
"The cottage is beautiful, cosy, clean, well equipped kitchen, spacious- we stayed with our two greyhounds and never felt cramped."
View of the sea from the side and countryside at the back is lovely. Location is great, just a short walk down the hill to mevagissey, walk back up is a bit of workout! But it’s so quiet and peaceful. Owners were really helpful, on hand if you need anything but not intrusive. The only fault really, and it’s not a massive issue is that if you have bigger dogs like we do, the garden isn’t as enclosed as the photo shows at this time of year. I’m sure it’s fine when all the plants have grown. The side gate is a normal small gate and the wall at the back of the garden is 2-3ft high and runs across the back of 2-3 properties so we had to keep dogs on leads in the garden in case they saw something and hopped over to chase, as the weather wasn’t great it wasn’t a massive inconvenience, but it could have been if they weather had have been better and we wanted to spend more time out there. other than that, a lovely cottage!
"Had a fantastic stay at Nectan in January with our two dogs."
Easy to get to, off road parking, spacious secure garden with side entrance, lovely view (South facing), well stocked kitchen, two bedrooms with en-suite, wood burner. Wow. It's also just a few minutes' walk down the road into Mevagissey with shops, pubs, cafés etc. Rosey and Robin couldn't have been friendlier. Perfect property for us and the pooches. Ticks all the boxes.
"What a fabulous stay in a wonderful accommodation."
Check in was very easy and everything you need for a stay was available. It was clean, warm and very comfortable and the hosts were fabulous. As in the description the walk down to Meva is easy however the walk back is not for the feint hearted. I would not hesitate to return or recommend thank you
"Loved it! Lovely and warm cosy."
Thanks for goodies! Linen on bed was nice! Our dog Tilly was so comfortable Only negative but not about property was the steep hill up. Thank you
"A beautiful property in an excellent location."
Two good size bedrooms, both with en-suite facilities. Great living are, with log burner. Kitchen well equipped. Safe garden for the dogs. Hosts were helpful and informative, around if you needed them, but unobtrusive. All in all a very lovely stay in beautiful Mevagissey. Thank you indeed.
"Loved our stay in this cottage it was perfect for us comfortable beds cosy lounge well equipped kitchen great garden for the dogs and peaceful nice easy stroll into Mevagissey and wonderful hosts."
The goodies on arrival were a lovely touch.Cannot wait to return
"We had a lovely comfortable stay in a very welcoming home"
"Spacious, comfortable accommodation with a lot of thought gone in to making Nectan a super place to stay."
Robin and Rosey made me feel so welcome, and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and enjoyed my holiday. They were very accommodating as I welcomed a series of guests throughout my stay!
"Nectran was perfect, beautiful house , very clean and in a beautiful spot ."
Had an amazing holiday Everything you needed and more … nice walk to village and we got use to the hill. Easy to travel about …
"Owners v friendly."
Fridge was a bar size one, not full size Fridge/Freezer as shown in the listing. The interior is well appointed. From the back garden the sea can only be seen when standing looking over the fence to the side of the cottage. It cannot be seen when sitting on a garden chair on the patio or lawn. We walked several times from the town up to the cottage. Note: it's a 15 min steep uphill. Hope this feedback is helpful.
"We have just stayed at Nectan and we all had a wonderful holiday."
The accommodation was perfectly spaced for our family of 4. The property was well equipped with everything needed. There is a lovely well spaced enclosed garden with fabulous views to enjoy. The location was excellent as only a 5 - 10 minute walk into Mevigessy town centre where there are plenty of shops and a beautiful harbour. The other advantage is having your own parking space in front of the property which was easy to access. All in all we were very pleased with the stay, also the owners who live next door were very friendly and helpful with advice.
"Had lovely holiday in the cottage ,family really enjoyed it"
"Very nice property to stay in."
Very close to the centre of Mevagissey. It’s lovely to sit back and relax outside whilst enjoying the scenery. We are very much hoping to come back. Also the owners are very friendly and give lots of advice on where to eat and places to go. Lovely place to stay!
"From start to finish, our stay at Nectan was very enjoyable."
Our hosts, Robin and Rosey, were friendly and attentive, offering advice about where to eat and visit in Cornwall. It was much appreciated. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, and I would have no hestitation recommending it to holidaymakers wishing to stay in this lovely part of the UK.
"Lovely holiday, Nectan has everything you need, perfect if taking dogs, nice sized gardens, Robin & Rosie the owners are lovely, but not obtrusive."
A short walk down into Mevagissey which is a fantastic place. Only about a 7 minute drive to The Lost Gardens of Heligan, which is well worth a visit. The only warning i would give, is if you are elderly, disabled or a young family with pushchairs or pram, the walk back up to the property from Mevagissey is a hell of a hill!! We loved our holiday. Mark & Kim June 2022.
"The cottage was in a great location in Mevagissey."
The owners were available next door for any issues and were very friendly. The only issue, which wasn’t an issue for us was that walking into the village involved a very steep hill. Mind you, this is the case for most of Mevagissey.
"Lovely property, ideal for a holiday with your dog."
Everything you need is provided, and the owners are super friendly. Great location just a short walk (up a steep hill) from the harbour in Mevagissey.
"Immaculate property, everything is provided for a comfortable stay."
Lovely location with splendid views and just a short walk from beautiful Mevagissey.
"Most welcoming and helpful owners ."
With generous and much appreciated goodies left for us on arrival .
"We enjoyed our stay at Nectan and Barney found the garden perfect for his needs."
"We had a lovely time at Nectan Cottage."
The owners live next door and are extremely friendly and helpful and they leave you to it!!! They provided us with milk, bread, tea, coffee etc. for when we arrived. It was comfortable and very clean. The village was really quaint and charming. Would definitely recommend.
"We had a fabulous week at 'Nectan', a lovely warm and spotlessly clean property with two good sized en-suite bedrooms, a secure garden for our dog to enjoy and easy private parking on the drive."
The owners live next door, very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. It's a lovely walk down into the charming village and its picturesque harbour, all in all a fabulous holiday and can't recommend 'Nectan' high enough as a place to stay and enjoy the area.
"The cottage is in a super location."
It has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Thank you
Our pleasure! Property Owner
"Necton is a lovely lovely place everything you could ask for,the owners are a lovely couple and would definitely rebook to stay again thank you very much."
Thank you so much for your kind words. And, thank you for leaving Nectan in such a clean and tidy state. All the very best to you both in 2022. R&R Property Owner
"We were made very welcome in Nectan by the owners with a nice welcome pack."
The cottage had everything we needed and was warm and comfortable. Garden was excellent for our 2 dogs. We intend to return as we love Megavissey.
"Had a really lovely stay for 3 nights."
It was a lovely place to stay. Thank you.
"Nectan is extremely attractive and comfortable accommodation, and has been supplied with every resource one could need."
It was the same last year, hence I had no hesitation in recommending it to a different friend who came with me this time. She was equally delighted. I hope to return again next year, with family members!
"Nectan was ideal for our needs ( 3 adults) located just a short walk from Mevagissey."
The property had everything needed for an enjoyable stay, clean, modern and well equipped. The welcome pack was an added bonus. Would recommend without hesitation.
"Welcoming owners, comfy beds, a variety of outdoor furniture, great showers, warm, everything we needed."
"We had such a relaxing week at this lovely property in Mevagissey."
We were very comfortable there and loved the patio doors out to the garden, with countryside views and wildlife on our doorstep. The owners of the property, who live next door, were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived and left. Otherwise, we did not see them and they completely respected our privacy. We loved the walk to and from the picturesque harbour and would certainly consider returning here again in the future.
"The owners were welcoming and friendly and generous."
We enjoyed our stay and found the cottage clean and comfortable, with easy if steep access to the town.
"The accommodation was clean ,comfortable and the facilities were usable ,even with two dogs The owners were always on hand if needed but we never saw or heard them otherwise The garden was great , practical and secure for 2medium size dogs the welcome were a nice thoughtful touch Overall a great stay see you again in march !"
"Nectan, short walk into village, owners had put , milk ,biscuits, butter, bread, wine etc for us lovely touch, really clean, plenty of hot water ideal location, owners next door if you need them, lovely and warm, cosy , great place."
thanks for a great stay lovely cottage. Mark Tina
"The "cottage" has everything you could possibly need, and a lovely welcome pack."
We may have misinterpreted the description as we were thinking there was a sea/harbour view, but this is only sideways from the garden, not a problem but not quite as expected, still beautiful view of the countryside. The garden was enclosed, perfect for our dog. There are some lovely places to eat in Mevagissey, but with hindsight we would have contacted them prior to our visit to ensure we had reservations. With help from the owner we managed to avoid the village and the virtually impossible tuning at the bottom of the hill, thank goodness!
"Fabulous holiday accommodation situated in Mevagissey, five minutes walk from ..."
Fabulous holiday accommodation situated in Mevagissey, five minutes walk from the harbour and town, owners live next door but you would never know, very helpful if required great welcome pack as well, definitely will be back
"Cottage was better than we expected."
Very clean and everything you needed. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We had a brilliant time
"We had a lovely welcome pack which included wine, bread, cookies, butter, and milk."
Very relaxing break and enjoyed by all especially the dog.
"Lovely location such a pretty village friendly locals Sykes ensured everything ..."
Lovely location such a pretty village friendly locals Sykes ensured everything went smoothly right from booking excellent thank you
"Hosts Rosie and Robin were very good - friendly but not pushy."
They made some excellent suggestions based on local knowledge and went to extra trouble with recommendations for my birthday which occurred while we were there. Bedding and towels were changed midweek (which does not often happen) and cleaned weekly. Lovely setting in a working fishing village in Cornwall. Very happy to recommend it. One area - which we pointed out to the hosts - was the internet often failed - we could not connect at all. Robin and Rosie said that this had never occurred before - they have fast fibreoptic cable and had not previously been made aware of any internet problems. They undertook to monitor it with future guests.
"Nectan provided us with a great base to explore Cornwall."
It was spotless and had everything we needed. Robin the owner had phoned a couple of days before the holiday and emailed us directions to the cottage, which came in very handy. Be warned the roads are very narrow and the hill to the cottage is steep. Robin & Rosie were very friendly & helpful. If you're visiting in the summer try to go to see Robin in the Megavissy Male Voice Choir singing on the harbour. We were very happy with Nectan and would recommend it to anyone, as long as you can cope with the hill!
"Excellent cottage in a good location although at the top of a hill, the couple who own the cottage live next door and are available if needed but not intrusive."
Had a slight problem with my car and Robin offered to help fix it. Goodies when we arrived milk, butter, bread, biscuits and a bottle of red. Would recommend.
"Robin and Rosie very much respected our request for a peaceful stay, greatly appreciated."
Excellent location for exploring the area, so many wonderful places to explore nearby. Mevagissey an utter joy. Cottage very comfortable, garden perfect and secure for our 2 small elderly dogs. Great walking from the door.
"Booked this holiday apartment for a weeks stay for me, my wife and adult daughter."
Spoke to the owner Robin on the phone before we travelled and he emailed me directions to avoided going through the centre of Mevagissey. He also gave me tips on places to visit. This is a really nice apartment / extension with two good sized bedrooms attached to the main owners home. There was suitable parking for two large cars. Both bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms. One bedroom had a large double bed with the upstairs bedroom having a king size bed. Comfortable living area with seating for 4 to 6 adults. Kitchen was fully functional with electric cooker, microwave, toaster, filter coffee maker etc which was fine for our stay. Outside private garden with table and chairs to enjoy the sunny weather. We really enjoyed our stay. There are some very narrow roads around this part of Cornwall I advise those with satnavs to turn off quickest route selection and don’t follow the route without checking the roads are suitable for your car. Some roads are are very narrow just a bit wider the your wing mirrors with few or no passing points. Be prepared to reverse.
"Nectan is a lovely warm comfortable cottage and ideal if you have a dog."
The surrounding area has lots of dog walking opportunities in all weathers and some great cafes to walk to. We went to the shipwreck museum at church town and even the dog enjoyed it.
"The owners made us feel so welcome and were very helpful."
We would definitely return to this accommodation.
"Lovely warm cozy cottage, short very steep walk to some great little shops, good dog friendly pubs serving great food and a perfect harbour with fresh fish sold on the harbour side."
"Superb cottage and facilities, made very welcome by the owners who also left us some food and drink on arrival."
Great base to explore the rest of Cornwall but also enjoyed Mevagissey as well. Many thanks to Robin and Rosie!!!!
"The property was lovely, clean and well equipped."
Mr Murphy was there if needed but by no means intrusive.
"Very comfortable, home from home, in the pretty fishing village of Mevagissey."
Just a short (steep) walk down to the harbour. Lovely meal had at The Salamander. Take the ferry to Fowey, we saw porpoises both there and back! Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and walk along the left-handside of the coast and down 200 steps to the most beautiful secluded cove. Thank you so much for the bottle of wine and biscuits ...tea coffee milk etc. Just the perfect little base..lovely peaceful garden too.
"Our hosts were very welcoming, we felt very comfortable at our temporary home."
The layout is perfect for a family or two couples travelling together. Just the right distance from the busy village and parking on the property was very convenient. We would recommend this holiday cottage without reservation.
"A really nice holiday home in a quiet location - spacious and clean with a nice little sitting out area through the patio doors with views over the fields."
Robin, the owner, was really pleasant and helpful. Mevagissey is a really nice Cornish fishing village with plenty of eateries to suit all tastes and a couple of good pubs. The only downside of getting there from Nectan is the extremely steep hill (I think Robin's 100 yards from the village is more than a little optimistic!!!), however, we managed it on a number of occasions but if you are older or have small children I would suggest you think carefully before booking. That said, if you want somewhere to stay in Cornwall that has a parking space you have a price to pay!! All things considered, it was a lovely holiday home and we had a great stay.
"Friendly and helpful landlord."
Very pleasant cottage. The wood burner helped keep the place cosy with the weather we had the week we stayed.
"Very nice accommodation in a lovely village."
Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Plenty of lovely walks in the area and good base for exploring Cornwall.
"Nectan is by far the most comfortable, spacious and well equipped cottage we have stayed in."
The owners, who live next door, are extremely friendly and knowledgable about the local area. A delightful base for our holiday and well worth the climb back up the hill from harbour and shops
"Really nice and calm feeling when you first walk in and location was great, although the hill to and from the town / harbour is short and steep."
Very clean. Would recommend.
"It was a well furnished cottage with everything we needed."
Very comfortable. Nice location and a generous welcome pack from friendly hosts.
"The accommodation was clean and comfortable and well laid out."
Ideal for one or two couples or a small family.
"The cottage was very comfortable and very warm."
The enclosed garden was excellent for our dog with walks nearby. The harbour was just a five minute walk down the hill, but longer coming up. Very steep hill! And when we arrived it was lovely to be provided with milk, bread butter, wine, tea & coffee. All in all a very lovely and relaxing holiday with fantastic weather for November.
"We had a wonderful holiday at Nectan."
The cottage was lovely, clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and left Food, flowers, wine and biscuits which we thought was a lovely thing to do. We would most definitely come here again.
"Fantastic accommodation great location lovely hosts would highly recommend."
The description doesn't do it justice we loved it.
