  • "A beautiful, clean and well-equipped bungalow overlooking St Austell Bay."

    We have stayed here many times with our dog and have already booked again for 2025. Waverley has everything you need. There is a large field across the road and easy access to the South Coast path and Mevagissey harbour. Thank you for all the welcome gifts that are much appreciated. This is one of the best properties we have stayed in.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Waverley!"

    Property is situated in a perfect location, beautiful seaview, easy access to the town and direct access to SW coast path. Parking outside the house is good. House is cosy, welcoming and very tastefully decorated. It was also decorated for Christmas which was a nice touch too. Very well equipped kitchen, we cooked our Xmas dinner no problem. Owner checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. We fed back a couple of minor maintenance issues separately. It was great that we could bring our dogs too, there is a perfect green out the front to give them a quick run around. I highly recommend Waverley- I would definitely stay there again, but maybe next time in the summer!

  • "Waverley was an excellent property, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The property was even better than we expected, the view from the upstairs bedroom and the lovely outside space were both real highlights for us. We would highly recommend this property, as a family of 5 we didn't once feel on top of each other, which is quite common in Cornwall.

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay at Waverley."

    The house was perfect and the location is superb, I wanted to stay and look at the ocean every day.

  • "Lovely property with everything you need."

    Great location with stunning views!

    ClaireMay 2023

  • "A very clean, well furnished and comfortable property with good sized bedrooms."

    For three adults and a dog, it was perfect. The views from the two double bedrooms and the lounge out over the sea were wonderful. The kitchen is well equipped, but bring your own herbs and spices. For those with dogs, the back garden is small, but completely enclosed and the grassy area opposite great for more of a run and leads to the coastal path. Although there is no designated parking, we did not have a problem. We all had a great time and would recommend it.

  • "Lovely views out to sea from both the lounge and main bedroom upstairs."

    The secluded court yard is great for washing and drying down your dog before getting into the property via the kitchen. The walk to Mevagissey harbour is steep but only takes 10 minutes and is worth it to enjoy the shops, restaurants and fishing boats. It is also a great central location for visiting other parts of Cornwall, such as, The Lost Gardens of Heligan which only takes 5 minutes by car, or, a walk down the coastal path which is only a few meters away.

The property

Waverley is a delightful dormer bungalow with sea views on the outskirts of Mevagissey, Cornwall.

Set in a quiet area overlooking a grassy common and a sea view of St. Austell Bay, this dog-friendly, family-friendly holiday home makes the perfect escape.

On arrival, find ample roadside parking just outside the property and make your way through the front courtyard and into the home.

Once inside, you can find a sitting room enjoying the sea views, home to a TV for your evening entertainment after a busy day of exploring.

From here, the kitchen/diner has all you need for a self-catering stay, along with a handy washing machine for freshening up clothes and towels after a day at the beach.

When sleep calls, choose from three neat bedrooms; a king-size rests on the first floor, while the remaining double and single lie on the ground floor, making Waverley a convenient choice for a multigenerational group!

Serving the bedrooms is a sleek shower room where you can wash away the sand or prepare for a day out.

To the rear of the home, you can also find a private courtyard, inviting you to savour your morning coffee in the fresh air.

Waverley has easy access to the coastal path which runs within yards of the cottage, meaning that Polstreath Beach can be reached by a short walk.

Mevagissey harbour is just a stroll away from this lovely Cornwall cottage and you will find plenty to amuse the family, including an aquarium, a model railway centre, shops and cafés and of course the hustle and bustle of a traditional Cornish working harbour.

There are plenty of attractions within an easy drive of Waverley including, Caerhays Castle, the UK's only mining heritage centre at Wheal Martyn, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre.

Of course, Cornwall is also home to many safe, clean beaches and welcoming pubs, making this Waverley a wonderful base for an active family 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.
