  • "Rose Cottage is lovely."

    Its in a great location with beautiful views. We found it very comfy and spotlessly clean and would definitely stay there again.

  • "The only thing to be aware of is that the roads in Mevagissey are extremely narrow."

    Driving to the property is not for the faint hearted!

  • "The cottage was exactly as advertised."

    It was very comfortable and had everything in the kitchen that we were likely to need. The standard of cleanliness was excellent and all of the linens and towels supplied were brand new. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to other potential holidaymakers.

  • "We were 3 adults and 2 children and found the layout of the living area perfect for a holiday cottage and contributed to the relaxing stay."

    Good, but steep, short cut to town via steps to right of cottage made popping out for supplies or car park quick and easy. The only slight negative was that the lovely iron bed frames rattled.

  • "Excellent few days, in a very comfortable Rose Cottage."

    Everything very clean, and facilities also very good. If I was going to say anything could be improved, it would be keep bathrooms on standard heating during colder seasons.

  • "Awesome house, it has everything you need, apart from the lid to the teapot, we couldn't find it, lovely views from inside and outside on the deck."

    Even got use to morning wake up call by the seagulls, or on foggy mornings the foghorn. Great stay, love Mevagissey, drive up to house a bit hairy at times, but it's an adventure and was relived my car just fitted on the parking space. Would definitely return and recommend.

  • "Great cottage, very comfortable with a shower room and a bathroom."

    Nice terrace with table and chairs with sea view. If you walk further down garden there is a place to have a barbecue. Cottage is bigger in side than it looks on the outside. Well equipped with most thing you need for a great holiday. Beds are comfortable and warm and clean. Parking space next to cottage is just big enough for a fiesta sized car. Not many cottages in Mevagissey have parking spaces.

Setting out for the day, it's only five minutes' walk to the picturesque harbour, where you can sit and relax in a café or bar, watching the boats and the fishermen at work on the quay, or take a fishing trip or small pleasure boat to explore the bay during spring and summer months.

A seasonal passenger ferry runs to and from Fowey, from which you may be lucky enough to see basking sharks, dolphins and seals.
