Well appointed large spacious house, a short walk to Porthmellon beach, pub and Shack cafe. A short drive to local Gorran Haven beach would be recommended . Mevagissey is a lovely local harbour town with plenty of places to eat and shop and a pleasant walk from the house,though not easy to drive through due to very narrow streets. Very close to ThRead moree Lost Gardens of Heligan which are definitely worth a visit along with the Eden Project. The large utility room was great for the dogs and all mod cons in the kitchen and pantry. Hide

Lovely house and excellent location. Lots of nice walks either along the coast path or inland. Driving through Mevagissey on arrival when it is very busy with both people and cars, can be stressful so it might be a good idea to take the longer route round.
