Perched on the sloped hillside overlooking beautiful Mevagissey Harbour, this three-storey holiday home enjoys spectacular seaside views. With bright and airy rooms decorated in a distinctly coastal theme and a delightful suntrap garden to the rear, this property is equally as charming inside and out. When you're not admiring the views from above, take a stroll down to the village to make use of its gift shops, pubs and beach.

Arranged over three floors, this Georgian-style gem retains its original large sash windows, panelled walls and high ceilings. Both the dining room and lounge offer spectacular harbour views, rivalled only by those from the two cosy bedrooms on the top floor. To the rear, a sunny enclosed patio bordered by walls of climbing ivy is the perfect venue for al fresco meals, while evening drinks are best enjoyed overlooking the harbour to the front of the property.

Located less than 100 yards from Mevagissey Harbour, its range of traditional pubs, themed restaurants, quaint gift shops, galleries and small beach are all just a short stroll away. For golden sands, head to Pentewan and Gorran Haven, which are situated 3 miles in either direction. The regional town of St Austell is 6 miles away, while the popular attractions of the Eden Project (10 miles) and the Lost Gardens of Heligan (3 miles) are not to be missed either.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin
  • 1 shower room and WC
  • Kitchen – oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave
  • TV/DVD
  • Outside patio area with seating
  • Beach, shops, restaurants, pubs and galleries all within walking distance

Cute cottage right on the harbour with wonderful views. Very close to cafes and restaurants but still quiet and tucked away. It was lovely to sit out in the sun overlooking the harbour with a coffee. Well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Comfy bed but it's just a double. Highly recommend!
