"Classic Cornish seaside holiday, charming cottage"
Cottage was very well modernised throughout. Pristine well-equipped kitchen and bathroom with double shower. Washing machine but no dryer or dishwasher, though there is a washing line in the courtyard garden. Other facilities we did not use but might next time were a wood burning stove and barbecue. There is a fridge freezer, ironing board, airer, vacuum cleaner. The cottage was well supplied with cleaning materials, toilet roll, washing up sponge etc and we did not need the 'just in case' supplies we took. Likewise the £15 electricity supplied on the keycard was sufficient for a week of mixed weather the first week of June, we liked the package of having prepaid electric, prepaid (free)car parking as is £45 per week, free wifi , being out most days from lunchtime and two evenings but in watching a boxed set not on the supplied DVD player but downloaded on our own laptop via cottage Wifi. We had no problems communicating via phones or other devices. The information about the cottage is clear and comprehensive. The reserved paid for space in the Willow car park was very well organised and the car park staff very helpful. We were pleased we had packed into rucksacs and zip-topped shopping bags making it easier to take the luggage up the narrow paths where you cannot drive. The cottage had adequate storage for clothes in a tallboy with drawers and a chest of drawers. For women who blow-dry their hair I found the holy trinity (convenient power point; hairdryer (supplied) mirror and put-down surface can be found in the twin bedded room) very useful. Likewise there were mini bedside shelves for spectacles etc which were appreciated. The very low beams upstairs caught us out a few times but the overall charm of the cottage were delightful. Mevagissey itself is very interesting, changing all the time as it is tidal, a working port and visitor destination. To eat in, take away or eat out in one of the many excellent restaurants and cafes was a joy and something for all pockets. We didn't try everything but the Fountain Inn was both excellent and very friendly, and we ate pasties, ice cream and fish and chips outside along the harbour where there are many seats and a policy of take your wrappings back to the vendor so it is very clean and pleasant environment. We visited the Gardens of Helligan (always worth a visit - this time a vast swathe of forest foxgloves was my highlight); Pentewan beach - a lovely sandy beach with rock pools and an outward bound school - lovely to watch the youngsters in canoes and paddle boats, windsurfers while eating a posh burger and ice cream from the seaside shop. We parked at the top for £3 all day and had a blissful afternoon soaking up the sun. We visited Truro for some shopping on a wet day and found a fantastic ice cream shop and one selling craft beer - still felt like holiday, and another day we drove to Fowey which was lovely. Charlestown was interesting, the harbour used in Poldark, and I enjoyed trying to get it all in on my 'panoramic' view on my smartphone. We stayed in St Mawes the last two years which we like very much but there is much more in Mevagissey for us.

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.
