This unique property has many original and novel features and sleeps a total of six people in one twin and two double rooms making this a great holiday home for a group of friends or a larger family. Tucked away in a small courtyard and nestling between the narrow main street and the picturesque harbour in the popular village of Mevagissey lies this charming cottage that was originally a fisherman's store. Furnished to a high standard, this Cornish holiday home blends period features with modern style. Beams and other original features remain in situ whilst an antique French bed and chandelier furnish one of the double rooms. Adjacent to the... owner’s property, this little house is ideally situated for a wander down to the harbour to watch the boats come in or a trip to the town’s excellent shops.

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 winding cobbled streets and a harbour full of boats, Mevagissey represents the perfect Cornish fishing village. Sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves are waiting to be explored and stunning walks lead along the coast in both directions, giving you plenty to see. Just up the road are the Lost Gardens of Heligan whilst closer to home, the village has an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants. Also available in the village from Easter until September are ferry trips between Mevagissey and Fowey. Just seven miles away is Charlestown with its fish smokery, shipwreck museum and Tall Ships harbour. The Eden Project’s world famous tropical biomes are only a 10-minute drive away, as are the fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

This is a lovely stone cottage located within a minute's walk of the picturesque harbour. We stayed there as a family of two adults and one 7 years old girl and there was ample room and great facilities. Although it would have been nice to have had some outside space and parking closer to the property this is a small price to pay for being located in the middle of this bustling and beautiful fishing village.
