This fabulous harbourside house features on most old photos and postcards of Mevagissey and is one of the most iconic buildings on the harbour. Built into the cliff face and with a ships eye view of the water from every window, the house has been renovated in 2014 to a very high standard and enjoys fabulous harbour views.

The Sea Hoss was built in the 1700's from the timbers of an ancient shipwreck and was named after the ship. Cornish wreckers would frequently take to the beaches after a ship laden with silver had hit the rocks, and instead of silver, someone took the timbers from the boat to build this little house!

It has recently been lovingly restored over the summer and now has a superb contemporary interior which blends perfectly with the old timbers and exposed stone walls and every effort has been made to maintain all of the original features.

Built over 3 floors, the house has two comfortable double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bathroom has a dramatic slipper bath, overlooking the harbour, a fabulous place to enjoy your complimantary bottle of Cornish wine, and the second bathroom has a walk in wet room style rain shower.

During renovations, an old fish cellars was discovered under the floor, complete with the oak barrels used to store and cure the Cornish Pilchards, which had been buried beneath the concrete. A Pilchard press and Smoke house and fireplace were found behind layers of 1930's cladding and boarding. We have tried to preserve every little piece of Cornish history that we have discovered and showcased it for our guests to enjoy.

Accessed via a narrow footpath called The Cliff, which leads to the coast path the kitchen, which is the origional fish cellar has porcelain flooring with underfloor heating and an electric Rayburn with contemporary warm front technology. A glass floor has been laid over the origional oak barrel called a Hogshead and a feature has been made of the Pilchard press.

A 1700s spiral staircase leads to the cosy sitting room and bright morning room, with log burner for cosy winter nights and fabulous harbour views. There is a 40 inch flat screen tv and a selection of dvd's, a selection of postcards of the house and village painted by our friend and artist Sue Eng and maps and tourist books, We also provide an ipad loaded with local information, maps and ideas for days out with a mini printer and also family crabbing buckets for sitting on the quayside just outside the front door.

Although small, there is a terrace for 4 people overlooking the harbour and furnished with Cornish driftwood furniture and vintage lighting.

Due to the dramatic location, there is no parking at the property but we have a space on the nearby car park so our guests do not have to pay parking charges.

This is an idyllic bolthole on the harbour wall and fulfills every promise of your dreams of a Cornish Cottage holiday.
