  • “It was a lovely house at a great location.”

    The cleanliness of the house wasn’t good. Half the mattresses in the rooms were very uncomfortable. We had to fix the front door lock because it was so loose . Eventually one of the keys broke having to constantly mess about trying to open the door. The garden area looked like it hadn’t been touched for months. The furniture was very dirty.

The property

Once the home of Mevagissey's first bank, this imposing Grade II listed village-centre building has been renovated to a high standard, creating a Cornwall holiday cottage of comfort and character.

Set over three floors, 100 yards from the harbour, the property retains many original features.

The bedrooms are mainly over the ground and second floors, while the main, stylish living space occupies the first floor.

The exquisite dining room, with parquet flooring, panelled walls and glazed ceiling, is overlooked by a balcony from the second floor.

The harbour, pubs and restaurants of Mevagissey are all within a short stroll.

Wander to the water's edge to watch the fishermen unload their catch, stroll along the coastal path on the headland or walk to The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Alternatively, explore the Eden Project, the cathedral city of Truro or the beauty of the Roseland Peninsula and its beaches.

About the location

MEVAGISSEY

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.
