The West Country region

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.


Mevagissey is the archetypal Cornish fishing village, and is a picturesque place with a harbour full of bobbing boats and meandering cobbled streets. The coast has beautiful walks in both directions, gorgeous sandy beaches, cliffs and secluded coves. There is a superb selection of pubs and restaurants, and a ferry runs daily to Fowey in the summer season. Just up the road you'll find the Lost Gardens of Heligan; the fascinating Tall Ships harbour at Charlestown with its shipwreck museum and fish smokery is seven miles distant, and the incredible tropical biospheres of the famous Eden Project are 11 miles away. The beaches and coastline of the Roseland Peninsula are a short drive down the coast and the shops, restaurants and theatre of the cathedral city of Truro are just half an hour's drive away.

"Good location."

I liked that the house was in the centre of Mevagissey - it was easy for my parents to wander around and go for coffees etc, and easy for the younger members of the party to walk to a suitable beach. … More

"Interesting and spacious"

Six of us shared this house which sleeps 10 so we had plenty of space. The kitchen was well equipped and the living room was good for 6 (though probably cramped for 10). The dining room was spacious … More

We are pleased to report that since your booking the owners have installed a damp course to the problem areas mentioned, redecorated and recarpeted 4 bedrooms and replaced one of the two ovens at the property.
