"Beautifuly restored harbour side cottage"
We had a really wonderful time at Thimble Cottage and in Mevagissey. Thimble was all we hoped it would be - a beautifully restored cottage, just the right size, a great view of the harbour, wood burni… More

We were looking for a bolthole in Cornwall to recharge the batteries for a week and Thimble cottage was the perfect place. Although you are in the heart of the Mevagissey and just metres away from the quay, being set back behind the little cobbled streets of the harbour you can enjoy peaceful evenings as well as being close enough to all the amenities. As soon as you walk in the door it feels like home. The decor and furnishings are very tasteful with local art, lovely furnishings and an extremely comfy bed. The courtyard is the perfect place for an early evening glass of wine and pre-dinner game of scrabble. If you are feeling energetic, turn out of the back gate and along the pubic footpath and within 10 minutes you can be high up on the coastal path taking in the awesome view of Mevagissey harbour and Chapel point. If you like to walk (and I would encourage it after all the delicious food you are going to eat) then you are right on the SW coastal path. We walked nearly every day. If you are a walker, foodie or real ale (or cider) lover, you will be in heaven.
We had a brilliant stay at Thimble and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

"Home from home"
We have been coming here every year since 2009 and think its wonderful. It's so close to lovely restaurants and shops. The harbour is seconds away and you can see the spectacular views from the cottage. It has a well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom, comfy lounge. It's just like a home from home.

"Great holiday cottage"
Booking nice and easy and well handled.
The cottage had a nice feel to it especially with the log burner in the sitting room and views of the harbour and sea from the top floor. The stairs in the house are quite narrow and steep and you might need to duck the beams if you are tall but it all added to the character for us. The patio out the back also was a great sun trap and we were roasted sitting out there even in April.
Well located one street back from the harbour and so easy to walk along to the many fantastic places to eat and obviously lots of fish on offer which you can see coming off the wee boats in the harbour.
The parking was included in the main village car park and the attendant who gave us the pass was really helpful in giving directions to the cottage too and telling us where we could drop off the bags for the short walk up to the cottage.
All in all we had a fantastic break for the week and would certainly return if in the area again.
