The Old Barbers is a quaint, rustic property that promises the ideal family getaway. Retaining a unique charm that only this prior fisherman's cottage can present, The Old Barbers is highly charismatic and welcoming, as well as truly characterful. Located in the heart of Mevagissey, you never are too far away from the seaside allure that the home presents.

With exposed beams and a rustic woodburner, the property really excels in its warm and homely attractiveness. Cool nautical shades of blue and warm wood tones compliment the plush furnishings, as well as making the rooms light and airy -- perfect for socialisation and family down time. Views from the windows are picturesque, surveying over the postcard style village of Mevagissey.

The location merely adds to The Old Barber's wow-factor, as its perfectly within walking distance of shops, pubs, and Mevagissey's distinctive twin harbour. Or take a short 2-mile trip to Pentewan beach, large and excellent for swimming, surfing, sailing, waterskiing and more! Canoes and dinghies can be hired for exploration of this stunning sandy beach, or you can simply soak up the heat and enjoy the Cornish sunshine. Take advantage of the convenient placement of the cottage and explore Cornwall's south coast - venturing further afield leads you perfect to attractions such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project, Lands End and many more.
