This old fisherman's cottage in the heart of the picturesque coastal village of Mevagissey is perfect for groups and families who want to explore this dramatically beautiful area of Cornwall on foot, by cycle or car.
The quirky layout, character features and fresh yet traditional decoration enhances the cottage's position.
Quiet, peaceful and yet only a few minutes' walk from the harbour, shops, restaurants and pubs, it's the ideal bolt-hole.
The ground floor has kitchen, dining and utility areas including secure bike storage and laundry facilities.
On the first floor, you can enjoy a large lounge with seating for six with a double bedroom next door.
Stairs from both these rooms lead to a second floor with shower room and two more bedrooms.
The en suite and dressing for the double bedroom is on the third floor.
Driving to the property you will see parking for two cars - a rare and valuable asset in this quaint village.
An enclosed south-facing patio garden has a large picnic bench/table and another bench.
Garage doors lead to the laundry with secure storage for bicycles and other leisure equipment. Once the centre of Cornwall's pilchard fishing industry, Mevagissey still has working fishing boats.
The famous narrow, steep streets now boast many gift shops and craft workshops as well as a wide variety of places to eat and drink.
The coast is the attraction here, with Mevagissey not far from Polstreath Beach's golden sands and St Austell Bay.
The scenic coastal path offers delightful walks, if a little steep in places.
The town hosts an excellent Folk Museum and the World of Model Railways and further afield The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trewithen Gardens and the Eden Project are within easy reach.
