“Love it!!!”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We stayed here last September and loved it so back we came for a second go! The house itself is lovely, full of character and very well furnished with quality furniture, bedding and kitchen equipment. The lounge is particularly welcoming with a huge fireplace and wood burner, seaside themed pictures and nicknacks, candles in jars and a nice cosy feel.
The house is spotless and this is the only place we've stayed in that we don't have to wash every bit of crockery and cutlery before we use it because of the way it's been washed up in the past. Everything's CLEAN!!!
Also thank you Martin for renewing the mattress after last year's saggy experience! It was much appreciated.
The location's very good, up a narrow side street away from the noise of the harbour and the pubs turning out at night. There's a large parking space next to the house which is big enough for my husband's Renault Traffic van (not enough luggage room in my car) and the only minor drawback is reversing in or driving out as it's very tight! Also keep your fingers crossed you don't meet another car coming the other way driving down the very winding lane as there are high stone walls either side.
Mevagissey's lovely but rather touristy at times which spoils it a bit but apart from a few new builds high up on the hillside, it hasn't really changed in 20 years or more. There are plenty of places to eat, many of which allow dogs inside which is a bonus if you have one. The best places we found were The Fountain, The Ship and the Sharksfin. Take a walk round the harbour at night - it's lovely!
One hiccup we had here was the heating - which seems to be a common factor with a couple of recent travellers. We definitely needed it on during the mornings and evenings as the house can get quite cold especially if it's raining which it did frequently while we were there.
The only other slight moan was the fact that there was no bathmat to stand on when getting out of the shower and there was no safety grab rail in the shower area.
Other than that, we had a great holiday and would love to come back again one day.

Gorgeous holiday home, just a few mins walk into the bustling harbour area. The house was spotless when we arrived, so a big THANK YOU to Charlie and her team. Our first impressions when entering the property was WOW. It is absolutely gorgeous, It has all the home comforts you need. The conservatory and the decked back yard area are amazing for winding down at the end of a long day out, before setting off again into town for a few drinks and a meal.

The only minor issue we had was with the heating, the issue was sorted out within minutes after a text to the property manager Charlie.

The property is close enough to the harbour to walk to, but far enough away to avoid the hulla-baloo of the busy little village.

The car parking space makes a big difference as the road outside is very narrow with no parking on the road. Be advised that leaving the property by car either left or right will mean you have to navigate very tight roads.

All in all we had a fantastic week, it is a brilliant holiday home and a credit to the owners for making it feel very homely, and a credit to Charlie and co for the job they do as well.

We will def be booking again.

The cottage was lovely, even better than we expected had everything we needed and was a short walk from the harbour, we would definitely recommend anyone to stay here and we are hoping to return next year, Mevagissey is a beautiful place and the people are so friendly and helpful, also plenty of good places to eat.
Thank you for such a pleasant and happy stay.

“Great Cottage, Great Location”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage is in the beautiful town of Mevagissy, only a short walk from the fishing harbour. There are nice pubs and restaurants along the picturesque harbour and boat trips availible from the quay. The cottage is a good size and very well presented and furnished, with a conservatory and garden. Everything is left to make you feel welcome on arrival.

Management Response
8 Aug 2017
Thank you for your comments. I feel it is only fair to give a balanced view to trip advisor reviewers that we respond to your comments.
When you arrive you will have found in the kitchen your welcome tray with a card for our local agents in the village. It is stated in the welcome information that if you have any problems during your stay that Charley and her team are there to help you at anytime during your stay. You sent me a message via Tripadvisor at 9pm on Friday evening (the day before departure) stating you had some issues (more have been added to your review subsequently). I replied by return. This of course made it very difficult for our agent or indeed ourselves to offer you any support given you only had a few hours left of your stay. I sincerely wish you had contacted one or both of us much sooner.
We have a NEST controlled central system in the cottage as you stated we can control this system from our devices if really necessary. It is however very easily controlled manually using the dial in the kitchen by turning the heating up or down as you require and indeed a comprehensive information pack is provided at the cottage with all the instructions for the technology we provide. Once again though, had you contacted our agents they would have been more than willing to support you with the difficulty you were having.
You are correct that we provide Apple TV’s in both the lounge and master bedroom. We have not stated channels only that you can log onto your Netflix account and continue to watch the programmes you enjoy. We also provide DVD’s, CD’s, books (of which we are happy for your to take one home if you are in the middle of reading them and replace with another) and a variety of board games. There is also a music system and radio. I’m sorry you feel there was not enough in the way of entertainment if this is what you are suggesting.
You are correct we have got moisture traps in the bedrooms, common practice in properties of this age in costal regions. Indeed due to the recent weather conditions many areas have a very damp feeling including ourselves who are completely land locked!
When we were last at the cottage, there we no areas of wear or staining on the carpets. Our agent has noted no new issues so if you would be kind enough to send me a picture to my e mail address (which you have) I would be very grateful. I am confused by this!
Regarding the bedding stain, our agent was very sorry to hear this and would have been round immediately to replace this once again had you called. This would also apply to the cigarettes ends you also found in the garden which were not there when Charley carried out the quality check prior to your check in.
I am sorry the stay didn’t meet with your expectations. Regards Martin and Clare

“Nice House”

Mevagissey is a fabulous Cornish harbour town and to compare it to a Canadian log cabin with its own boat or Barcelona is ludicrous. We have stayed here 3 times, have booked again for late summer and can't wait. The Cottage is exactly as described and for my wallet, great value. Roll on the next visit.
