Region: Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.
Town: With its cobbled streets and a harbour full of boats, the little town of Mevagissey is the epitome of a Cornish fishing village. This lovely settlement boasts stunning walks leading along the coast in both directions, dotted with sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village itself provides a number of excellent pubs and restaurants whist close by are numerous attractions such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the ferry ride from Mevagissey to Fowey, which runs daily between Easter and September. With the addition of the Tall Ships harbour and shipwreck museum at Charlestown and the world famous Eden Project, this is a diverse and fascinating location. With a stunning coastline with fabulous surfing facilities, this area has something to suit all tastes and budgets.

The accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed.
The owners were very friendly and helpful, there is a lovely garden to sit in, which gets the sun all day.
It was a short walk to Mevagissey, where there were plenty of shops and the quay side, where we spent a lovely time watching the boats.
It is a good base to drive to see the surrounding area, all within an hours drive.
Lovely well situated and modern cottage.

We found the position of an Kres ideal. The welcome was very warm and friendly from the owners and the cottage had every modern convenience one could wish for. It was very comfortable and had easy access to the village of Mevagissey and was not far from all the main roads to the rest of Cornwall. The nearby gardens of Helligon were wonderful and a treat not to be missed.
Calm quiet area

Overall it was good. This place is rather a community. It felt like I was home. I was expecting something slightly secluded.

A lovely place for a restful holiday

This property provided everything we could have hoped for in a Cornish fishing village. The owners are very friendly and quick to offer useful advice on where to visit and shop, and the property could not be faulted. It was ideal for exploring the middle of Cornwall with Heligan on the doorstep and many other Cornish gardens and attractions within easy travelling distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
A very adequate property for 2 people to stay in

The property was clean and modern and had most things required for a rental property.
Mevagissey is a lovely place but be prepared for the big hills.
Great place to get away from it all!

The 'cottage' was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful.
The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is that it was little further out of the town than we thought and not as private as we would have liked.

A cosy and select cottage high above town
Left on 12/19/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | stable mates
Everything had been provided for our stay in new condition; it was quiet, select and convenient as we did not mind walking the 25% climb up the hill from the port and quayside, but this might be a problem for some. Parking in town is expensive. There is so much to see and do within a short car ride.A memorable holiday week !
