    “Excellent location-central to Mevagissey village.”

    Spacious accommodation with lots of 'extras', tea bags, washing up liquid etc. Only slight quibble with regards to cleanliness: chunk of hair in plug, dusty window sills and very messy outside table. Would have liked more towels left. ...

    Spacious accommodation with lots of 'extras', tea bags, washing up liquid etc. Only slight quibble with regards to cleanliness: chunk of hair in plug, dusty window sills and very messy outside table. Would have liked more towels left. Biggest disappointment was the directions to the car parking; it took an age to find. The given instructions were to turn right up a hill by the bank. There no longer is a Lloyds bank in Mev. Perhaps also mention the name of the private house where the car parking is situated? Chy Kerensa. Apart from the above minor points we had a great holiday and would recommend the cottage to others.

The property

This charming Grade II listed terraced cottage is situated in a quiet side street in the heart of the old fishing village of Mevagissey, Cornwall.

Set mainly over the first and second floors, this attractive cottage is perfect for families wishing to explore this lovely part of the country.

You enter the property on the ground floor into the porch before taking the stairs to the open plan living room with comfortable sitting and dining areas.

The bedrooms are all on the second floor with a double, twin and bunk bedrooms, giving choices for all the family.

Outside, this lovely cottage has a courtyard where you can sit and relax with a morning coffee, whilst planning your day’s adventure.

This delightful cottage is close to the distinctive twin harbour that provides a haven for the many fishing boats as they land their daily catch.

Within minutes of walking from the front door, you will be in the centre of the village where, in picture postcard style, pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways, along with galleries and shops, cluster around the harbour walls and line the pretty narrow streets.

On the harbour, there are two free attractions, the local museum and the aquarium, both well worth visiting.

A gentle stroll up the footpath or cycle trail at the back of the village, to the top of the valley, is the most visited garden in Britain and certainly one of the most interesting, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, where a visit is thoroughly recommended whatever time of the year.

Also close by, over the hill to the east, is the village of Pentewan with its safe, sandy beach and lovely old harbour which, together with a fine pub and cafes, make a visit most worthwhile.

In the village cyclists are well-catered for with a cycle trail along the bed of and old narrow gauge railway.

Walkers have the stunning South West Coast Path on the doorstep with dramatic walks in both directions.

A great location for a holiday or a short break, all year round.

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.
