  • "Fantastic little place."

    Enjoyed our stay immensely. Had everything you needed for a perfect getaway for two. Parking was easy as was loading and unloading. Nice king size bed which was super-comfortable. Lots of space to put your things away in the kitchen and bedroom. We used the wood burner each evening which was simple, fun and very cosy. There aren’t many shops around to buy supplies - but we bought things from a supermarket only a few miles away in St Austell. Can’t recommend this place highly enough! We are planning our next trip back..

    Mr Ryan, we are so happy you had such a lovely stay. We hope you had a good drive home and look forward to you being able to visit again soon. Kind Regards Eva and Glen :) Property Owner

  • "The cottage was as described."

    We could not find any instructions for the use of the oven although most other devices handbooks were available. The appartment above was quite loud( well it sounded like the occupants were walking on floorboards above( there has obviously been no sound proofing. Just to clarify this was just a single person we believe walking to and fro in the apartment above!

    Dear Tim and Lynn Thank you for all your feedback and your lovely email I also received earlier this week. As you know we furnished the cottage fully throughout last October; and I’m glad you found the kitchen so well equipped, it was super helpful you spotted I missed egg cups, these are winging there way to our house manager today. We want our guests to have the most wonderful cosy stay in this 200 year cottage apartment, but we know beautiful old cottages like ours have a few quirks; and as you mentioned we do have a single gentleman living above and you can sometimes hear him moving about. My husband and I stayed at the cottage two weekends ago and could hear a bit of movement but didn’t find it bothered us. I’m really sorry if that detracted from your stay and I will be monitoring the situation. It was great to hear in your email you would like to come and stay again and you enjoyed the welcome Cream Tea we provide. I love that you appreciated the photos of the bay on the bedroom wall. These were kindly given to me by a family that also share the sea front, showing their grandparents and great grandparents and life in the bay about 100yrs ago. They are such a treasure to keep alive the history of the bay in Portmellon. Thanks again for helping us fine tune ‘Wave’s End’ we would love the outstanding position on the sea front and our attention to detail inside to draw guests back regularly. Very Kind Regards Eva & Glen PS I will print the cooker instructions and get them to our house manager today:) Property Owner

  • "Superb location right beside the sea with a perfect cosy window seat to read or just enjoy the view the splashing waves (when there's an easterly wind!"

    ) and watch seals and sea birds. In the evenings we hunkered down with blankets and popped on the wood burner. You do need to bring your own logs/kindling. The property is very comfortable, well equipped and stylishly decorated reflecting it's coastal location. Ideal for swimming and there are plenty of walks and villages to explore right from your front door. There's even an beautiful little art box for you to create some watercolours to remember your stay. Mevagissy is only a short walk away, is still a working harbour; so lots going on, and has some lovely pubs and cafés/restaurants. The owners provided a well thought through welcome pack prior to our arrival including parking information etc which was very helpful.

    Thanks for this lovely review. I’m still blown away by your beautiful watercolour’s you did while at Wave’s End, as are the rest of our family who also were super impressed when I showed them your email :) Property Owner

  • "Amazing place (property & scenery) just as the name says the waves literally touched the property just like living in the beach hut but a fancy one."

    It was like having the sea,beach & waves just to yourself just outside the window few steps from the door. Best place we have ever stayed on all of our holidays.

    Thank you so much. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Wave’s End. Thanks for leaving this lovely review:) Property Owner

The cottage is just over the hill from the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey in Cornwall. Boasting only 12 metres from your door onto the beach, captivating sea views, and an ambiance steeped in romance, Wave’s End invites couples to escape and cherish quality time together.

Step into your romantic haven and immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere of this Cornish hideaway.

The living and dining area, adorned with a woodburning stove, sets the stage for relaxing evenings in.

Create delectable meals in the fully-equipped kitchen or savour an intimate dinner for two in the homely setting of the living/dining room; alternatively, enjoy your first glass of fizz in the sunshine, admiring the breath-taking sea views, and planning your upcoming itinerary.

As the day winds down, retire to the bedroom featuring a plush kingsize bed, or indulge in a leisurely soak in the bathroom, complete with a bath and shower over.

Waves End ensures a memorable and rejuvenating holiday, where every moment is crafted for romance. Unlock a world of beauty and adventure just outside your front door.

Step out your front gate straight onto the beach at Portmellon when you can hire a paddle-board or Kayak from the ‘Shack’ in the bay, or just sit on the sea wall to watch the ever changing sea views.

Walk the costal path to the right and in 15 mins you will find yourself at chapel points where there is regular sighting of seals.

Mevagissey village is only a four minute drive from the cottage or a 15 minute walk over the hill, perfect for a meander through the cobbled streets, where you can explore local pubs, eateries, and craft shops.

If you're in the mood, The Rising Sun Inn in Portmellon, offers a convenient option for a refreshing drink, or you can venture into Mevagissey, which provides an abundance of pubs and lots of restaurants to enjoy!
