Courtyard Cottage is a Grade 2 listed Georgian town house in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey. Dating back to 1830, this 3 storey property has recently been renovated to a high standard from top to bottom, benefiting from a well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms and double glazing whilst retaining many original character features including wooden floors, granite fireplace and low ceilings in some places as you would expect in a property of this age.

Situated 200 metres from the harbour and just 20 metres from the car park, Courtyard Cottage is perfect for families to explore the region with beaches, cliff-top walks and the Lost Gardens of Heligan only minutes away. Perfectly located in the village, the cottage is just a short level walk to the restaurants and pubs in the narrow cobbled streets, but far out enough from the hustle and bustle to be quieter at night.

Split over 3 levels, you will find that you have plenty of space to relax and watch the world go by. There are 2 Xboxes (with games), DVD player (with over 100 DVD's), iPod docking stations and a computer. Free Wi-fi plus 4 TV's with Freeview and a selection of family games should provide enough entertainment to keep everyone happy in between trips out and about. The family bathroom with bath and separate shower enclosure is on the top floor whilst there is an additional shower and toilet on the middle floor, next to the 4th bedroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a two-seater setee and one of the other double bedrooms benefits from a zip and link bed, which can be configured as a super-kingsize or two 3ft single beds. All of the bedrooms have wardrobes and chests of drawers.

As you come into the cottage, you enter the large kitchen / dining room. The kitchen is very well equipped with separate fridge and freezer, integrated dishwasher, large electric range cooker with 2 ovens and a washer dryer. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses and cooking utensils. The large oak dining table will comfortably seat 8 people.

The kitchen and dining room on the ground floor have under-floor heating and the lounge and bedrooms all have Rointe energy efficient electric radiators. Both the bathroom and shower room have heated towel rails. Electricity is included in the tariff. Bed linen and towels are also provided free of charge. Parking permit for 1 vehicle for the length of your stay is also included. Additional parking permits are always freely available at a discounted rate (contact us for further details).

Stair gates are fitted and there is also a travel cot and high-chair available at no extra cost. Safety restrictors are fitted to all of the sash windows.

Sorry, no pets allowed and this has been our policy since the renovation works were completed. Synthetic fibre quilts as standard and anti-allergy pillows available upon request.

Short breaks and excellent under-occupancy discounts available outside of school holidays (please contact us for further details). Saturday changeover days throughout the year, but we may be able to be flexible with changeover days outside of school holidays.

Last minute deals will always be offered if there is less than 10 days before your desired arrival date.

We also own the shop unit at the front of the property and work has has just been completed to convert this property into a self-contained ground floor apartment. Sleeping two / four people, it is ideally suited to guests who prefer a property without stairs. Please see our other listing "The Old Shop" - very few properties in Mevagissey offer accommodation completely on the ground floor.

If you are looking to accommodate up to 12 people, you can rent both properties.

The Cornwall region

The South West of Cornwall has a wide variety of attractions to explore. With it's mild climate Cornwall is home to many gardens and National Trust properties. The Eden Project and the Tall Ships Harbour in Charlestown are both within 10 miles of Mevagissey and Truro with its magnificent cathedral and numerous shops is 20 miles away. Fowey, Gorran Haven and the Roseland Penninsula are also popular local destinations. Walk along rugged coastal paths or long sandy beaches, Cornwall has something for everyone, young or old.


Mevagissey has numerous restaurants and family friendly pubs, often hosting live music. Being small, Mevagissey has escaped the commercialisation of other Cornish seaside destinations and has a selection of interesting independent shops. Having made its wealth from pilchard fishing, Mevagissey once had 9 butchers shops. With its double harbour, Mevagissey is one of only a few working fishing villages left in Cornwall and you can take a pleasure cruise or try mackerel fishing whilst enjoying the glorious views of the Cornish coastline where you may catch a glimpse of seals, dolphins or basking sharks. There is a model railway and free museum within the village along with an activity centre which has a variety of activities. There is also a local scuba-diving club and the Pentewan cycle trail has lots of level stretches through the woods following the river. Towards the end of June Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week, a week of family fun, music, and floral dances through the streets. There is a small beach in the harbour and Portmellon and Pentewan beaches nearby. New Year's Eve is not to be missed as all the locals are in fancy dress so don't forget your outfit to see in the New Year.

"Just being nosey"

I probably shouldn't be writing this because I stayed downstairs but the owners showed me around this upstairs apartment which was getting an end-of-season tidy-up and decorate. This is a huge pl… More

"Great property in a great location"

This property is lovely and in an ideal location. Our family of 5 had plenty of space and everything we needed to make our week's stay thoroughly enjoyable. The kitchen / dining area on the ground floor is very well equipped and can comfortably seat 8. The lounge on the first floor had enough DVDs to while away the day if the weather was bad and if that wasn't enough there was always the board games or X-box !

The bedrooms are all well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean on our arrival and there was plenty of information in the house to help us plan our time in the area.

The property is ideally located in Mevagissey - a few minutes away from the harbour and all the shops / restaurants / pubs - perfect as it is far enough away to be pretty quiet but an easy walk after a night out ! Parking is just across the road so again incredibly easy to pack and unpack.

Our only comment would be that the doors are a bit smaller than some of our party so most of us did knock our heads a couple of times - it is an old property so the stairs are a bit tight and doors/ floors not perfectly even but that just adds to the character.

Communication with the owners was quick and easy and nothing was too much trouble - thanks for a lovely stay and we hope to come back sometime soon !

"In a great location a lovely clean and spacious cottage with every need catered for."

What a lovely cottage set in a great location just a couple of minutes from the harbour. Courtyard cottage is clean, spacious and comfortable and well equipped with everyone's tastes and needs catered for. Fresh milk was provided on arrival and we thought the fresh flowers were a nice touch. The Xboxes are an added bonus and great idea together with the extensive range of dvds especially if the weather is bad (although we had a good week). We would have no hesitation in booking Courtyard cottage again if we were going back to Mevagissey and would highly recommend the cottage to friends and family.

"Everything you need in a home from home"

All mod cons, comfy beds, extremely comfy couches in living room, everything you need to come home to after a day on the beaches! TV's in nearly all the rooms meant all different members of our extended group were able to have some quiet time and then the large well appointed kitchen was an excellent place for family dinners and evening games. Mevagissey itself has lots to offer especially in feast week, as our visit was, and even though this was our second time we still felt like there was lots to explore in the village and the surrounding area. One tip, low ceilings on the stairs meant several banged heads even though John told us to watch out for them! Highly recommended.

"Just wonderful!"

An excellent place to stay. Most convenient for all that Mevagissey has to offer for all ages. A gentle walk to everywhere. Parking most convenient. Very well equipped and presented in all ways. John and Kate have provided an outstanding house for holidays. Everything has been thought of and plenty of indoor activities for all ages. The treasure hunt was a wonderful extra which our grandchildren loved - the mugs were well used and the dolphins cuddled a great deal. Lovely idea of their names framed also. There was even a bottle of bubbly for our 40th wedding anniversary. Very generous hosts!! A place to return to.

"lovely holiday home"

My group and I loved our stay at Courtyard Cottage. The owner has been lovely and easy to contact. The house was spotless and well-equipped. In a great location, just moments from the town. The perfect holiday home to get away from it all!
