    “Every thing was provided down to ...”
    Every thing was provided down to kitchen equipment and books, board games and family entertainment for those rainy days, not that we had any. I couldn't fault the house or gardens. Only thing I would say is the pictures don't do this fabulous house justice. Stunning location looking out over the harbour. We wouldn't hesitate to say it has been the best holiday in a very long time. Anybody thinking twice don't, it simply is outstanding, a proper home from home.

The property

Superbly located for a holiday in Mevagissey and for touring all of the south coast of Cornwall, this luxury property has some of the finest views of any property overlooking this delightful old town and harbour.

Set over three floors you enter on the second floor, where the first of the beautifully furnished bedrooms has a balcony to sit out and enjoy the amazing views.

There is also a twin bedroom on the second floor and down on the first floor is where you will find the remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom, with the master bedroom benefitting from en-suite facilities and a balcony.

Finally, on the ground floor is where you will find the most spacious living room with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting areas, again benefitting from a balcony to take full advantage of this fantastic location.

With such a great setting you will be very much tempted to sit and wonder at all that is going on below at the working harbour with small fishing boats coming in and out.

A short walk will take you down into this famous, most popular old town where a selection of pubs, restaurants specialising in fish, bistros and takeaways (fish and chips are a must) will cater for all tastes.

Time must be spent appreciating the narrow higgledy-piggledy streets looking over the galleries, craft workshops and gift shops.

Fishing trips can be arranged from the harbour itself and a ferry trip is also advised to the beautiful, historic harbour town of Fowey, a wonderful day out.

A short drive away is one of the Cornwall's finest tourist attractions, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and along the coast you will find numerous nearby coves and sandy beaches.

The unspoilt coastal village of Gorran Haven nestling around a secluded cove is also recommended.

With so much to see, do and enjoy, Wheal Kendall offers superb accommodation to be enjoyed all year round.
