‘What a surprise we had when we arrived to this place. Situated in the harbour town of Mevagissey, this cottage was an absolute delight. The owners are very pleasant and left us to it the entire week which shows we did not have any issues. Everything was available to us. We had our dog too who loved the coast. There was lots to see and not enough time, we will be returning for a second visit next year no doubt. This is a must see place if you haven't already visited and this cottage I'd highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Cornwall. It was close to everything we wanted to see. An ideal place for a couple and their dog.’

It's set within walking distance to the harbour, it is a steep climb back up, but don't let that put you off as the tranquillity of the location is well worth the effort. There is a small rear garden perfect for chilling out or eating breakfast on a nice summers morning. We travelled with our dog.
