“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!
“A perfect apartment” Only recently completed, the Old Shop was perfect in everyway. Stylish, modern but warm and welcoming. Decor and furniture lovely. Our younger son and partner stayed there for the first part of the week and then a couple from home took over from them. It was enjoyed by both sets of people. Much thought has gone into this property (as with Courtyard Cottage) and has resulted in an excellent self contained apartment but next to the larger property. Plenty of space and extras included within. Excellent.
“A lovely place for a restful holiday” This property provided everything we could have hoped for in a Cornish fishing village. The owners are very friendly and quick to offer useful advice on where to visit and shop, and the property could not be faulted. It was ideal for exploring the middle of Cornwall with Heligan on the doorstep and many other Cornish gardens and attractions within easy travelling distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
“Lovely relaxing harbour town” The property is lovely and is situated in a really relaxing place. Its very quiet but is still a stonesthrow from Mevagisseys harbour and shops (amongst which you will find some really nice local crafts). We had some lovely meals out at the local restaurants and pubs and the fish and chips were amazing. I think the most challenging part of the holiday was getting the car back out of the VERY VERY!! tight lane leading up to the cottage. You are warned about this but I can't emphasise enough if you have a car bigger than a mini or KA I would advise you to not even go there because it really is tight. My car came back with the injuries to prove it. So just factor in £25 extra per week for the car park just down from the house. Whats great is you are on the coast path in minutes and you are really close to Heligan gardens which is great for a day out. The property does have storage heaters which I just couldn't get the hang of as they seemed to come on at odd hours in the middle of the night and then not in the day so if you are going in the winter be prepared with some jumpers.
The property doesn't have a washing machine so again factor this in if you are going for more than a week. Overall I thought the stay was great and the comments above are just minor things so people can be prepared. I would definately go back and stay there as I loved the atmosphere of Mevagissey, the property is really well decorated with some lovely touches such as candles. It's very welcoming and peaceful and the owner is extremely helpful.
