  • "Our stay at Thimble Cottage was just perfect, the fisherman's cottage was beautifully furnished, very cosy with the Woodburner on in November."

    The view of the harbour from the bedroom window seat was lovely. I'd sit with a cup of tea and watch the fishing boats coming in, in the morning. To be honest we didn't want to come home. Mevagissey was very welcoming and friendly with a wonderful pub called The Fountain just minutes away from the property, which we visited frequently! There are slots a number of restaurants and shops there as well. We will be returning, it was just do lovely, it really was. Definitely highly recommend.

  • "A beautiful cottage with fantastic views of the harbour in a great location for exploring Mevagissy."

    Beautifully decorated with everything that you could possibly need for your stay, even milk in the fridge on arrival which was very much appreciated. Beds are very comfortable too and the kitchen is very well equipped. I have already recommended this cottage to a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed our week, thank you.

  • "A great holiday experience, cottage location is ideal overlooking the harbour, but far away enough not to be disturbed by any noise, can't day that for those seagulls though!"

    Cottage caters for all your needs, bed was comfortable, kitchen meets all needs, milk in fridge was much appreciated. All in all a lovely stay, perfect base for travelling around Conrwalls attractions, plenty of places to eat and good selection of shops.

The property

Thimble Cottage, is a truly charming south facing, light and airy 1850s semi-detached former fisherman’s cottage set in the heart of the harbour in the centre of Mevagissey and backing onto the coastal path.

It can only be reached by foot, bliss no cars, bag drop and 2 minutes walk.

Beautifully and tastefully renovated cottage that is full of character with whitewashed walls, beamed ceilings, antique furniture and a woodburning stove.

Set over three floors the cottage is approached up a cobbled path and steps and would therefore be unsuitable for those with limited mobility.

You enter into the pretty open-plan kitchen with a dining area before taking the stairs to the spacious sitting room with log burner and stable door to court yard.

The two bedrooms, a double and a twin are both located on the second floor and both benefit from fantastic sea and harbour views.

The pretty courtyard garden where you can enjoy an early morning cup of tea listening to the gulls in the harbour with a side gate leading you out onto the coastal path.

Mevagissey is a working harbour, where you can watch the fishermen land their catch, mend their nets which they have being doing since 1430 or just watch the boats bobbing up and down.

Mevagissey has a long history of smuggling and piracy.

It’s a picture postcard quaint Cornish harbour.

A fine selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants as well as a cluster of art galleries around the harbour walls and line the pretty maze of streets.

Nearby the leading tourist attractions Eden Project, 8 miles away or walk 1.5 miles to The Lost Gardens of Heligan from Thimbles front door.

There is so much to do in and around the village that you could well enjoy a holiday here without having to take to the car.

With the beach, the stunning coastal path and a variety of boat trips, catch the Mevagissey to Fowey passenger ferry, you will have all you need here for a truly memorable holiday.

About the location


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.
