    The location of the Fishermans Loft is brilliant, right in the heart of Mevagissey really close to shops,pubs,restaurants and cafes and a short walk to the busy harbour where you can sit for hours enjoying the daily goings on of this beautiful working fishing village and sampling some of the local delights it has to offer, the fish and chips are different class but for me the star of the show was Mary's Pasties, there cornish pasties were out of this world,far superior to any other pasties on offer. A short walk back and your in the comfort of the Fishermans loft were you can relax and look forward to tomorrow's adventures ,the parking space with this accommodation is a real bonus giving you more options and convenience when planning your days.All said The Fishermans loft ticks all the boxes for a enjoyable vacation at this beautiful part of the country.

  • "The location of fisherman's loft was excellent."

    A minutes walk to the harbour with parking you couldn't ask for more. The photos on the website don't do it justice. I was worried whether I'd booked the right place for us as before I came I was looking at the photographs but for an adult and 2 teens it was perfect and bigger than we thought. With the current situation the apartment was spotlessly clean and made you feel reassured from the start. Would definitely recommend fisherman's loft for location within Mevagissey and surrounding area. Cleanliness and suitability.

    As the entrance to the front of property is in a secluded space, it would benefit a security light. A clothes airer - no where to dry damp/wet towels. Although this property is 'No Pets', there was dog mess around the parking space from 'The Old Sail Loft' property owners - 6 dogs! Everything else was exceptional. A parking space in Mevagissey is a big bonus. Very quiet spot. Would highly recommend this apartment, and would definitely stay again.

    The parking was very good right next to the property. Entering the property was a well lit lobby, then stairs up to the accommodation, which was very spacious and modern. When you look from the outside it doesn't look much but when inside is totally different. Very spacious bathroom and two good size bedrooms. It was very comfy, and had everything you need. Only a minutes walk to centre of Mevagissey. Only thing I would suggest is perhaps a black out blinds in the bedrooms( but that's just our idea) Would highly recommend fishermans loft and we, will be returning.

  • "This was our second visit to Fisherman’s Loft."

    We stayed here last year just as the property came on to the market. The fact that it was new and had its own private parking was just what we were looking for. Now well over a year later we are delighted to report that the apartment is still in wonderful condition and spotlessly clean. The lack of harbour view is more than made up for by its own gated parking (a valuable feature in Meva). We spoke with the other people staying in the adjacent apartments (4 in total) in the same building and they all remarked on the attention paid to cleanliness. One very minor and easily sorted issue.....the hall/entrance light for the 3 adjacent apartments is on a timer. We found that late evening entry and exit of the other residents that this light stayed on for longer than necessary. Unfortunately the light shines up through the skylights and into the bedroom window of Fisherman’s Loft. As we are light (no pun intended) sleepers this on/off illumination was a tad annoying. This said it was still a wonderful stay.

  • "The property was spotless and was cleaned very well before we arrived."

    The beds were very comfortable as well. This is perfect for our family of three but we did wonder how a group of 4 adults could comfortably relax in the living area. The one thing we found was that there wasn't any proper facility to dry clothes after washing them so we had to have things on the towel rail / stair balustrade. Louise was extemely helpful as well both before and during our stay. This is the perfect base to explore Mevagissy and the surrounding area of Cornwall. It is also a great place to get away from the crowds in Mevagissy as it was very busy and social distancing isn't possible in the main harbour area. The parking is right next to the property and the small outside area is great on a sunny afternoon.

    Great to have a parking place by the side of the property too. The place was modern and perfect for the three of us which included our grandson. We had everything we needed as well equipped. Would definitely recommend it. There was only one slight criticism and that was the noisy seagulls were so loud during the night and early hours so we had to have the windows shut and that made it very hot in the place. Maybe the opportunity to have Air conditioning? Appreciate we are talking about Cornwall and therefore wouldn't require this for much of the year.

The property

Situated in the centre of the picture-postcard fishing port of Mevagissey, just a stone's throw from the harbour, is this tastefully furnished apartment.

Set on the first floor of a house, tucked away in the market square, this superb holiday let is perfect for a couple or a small family of four looking to explore the south coast.

After parking directly outside, you access Fishermans Loft via 12 stairs, into the impressive open-plan living room.

With a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable sitting and dining area, you will find this a most relaxing haven after a day walking the spectacular coastal path.

There are two bedrooms, both beautifully furnished in keeping with the rest of the apartment and a bathroom ideal for a leisurely soak after a day on the beach.

With a twin harbour providing a safe haven for the many fishing boats that land their daily catch, you will have ample opportunity to sample the freshest fish in one of the many seafood restaurants.

Why not try a fishing trip or a beautiful boat trip whilst watching out for dolphins, basking sharks and seals sunbathing on the rocks?

There is an array of pubs, shops and restaurants set in the maze of narrow streets that cluster around the harbour walls.

Stroll the streets and absorb the sea breeze.

Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan or the Eden Project, Cornwall's two leading attractions, both of which are just a short drive away.

A luxury apartment for a memorable holiday whatever time of year.
