“Wonderful cottage in a perfect location.”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Brilliant holiday the cottage was clean comfortable and well equipped and is in a perfect location. Mevagissey is enchanting.Car park permit supplied by the owner an absolute godsend. We could watch harbour activity from the lounge and a great view across especially at night seeing all the lights! Enjoyed meals at Fountains Inn good value friendly staff. Fisherman's chippy was good too.
Eden Project great, hang loose brilliant especially the zip wire, Heigan Gardens amazing, Bodmin Goal and courtroom experience well worth a visit also Charles town shipwreck museum.
Really lovely holiday .

Thanks for the lovely review and really pleased that you found Mevagissey a great base to explore Cornwall. For a small fishing village, Meva these days has an amazing number of great places to eat, you obviously found some of them! Barry and Carol

“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Went to Mevagissey, and stayed and Polkirt Forge, fantastic little cottage providing everything you could want, excellent location to all amenities, including The Ship Inn and The Fountain Inn. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Bodmin Jail was an interesting place to visit only half hour down the road by car along with another little fishing village of Polperro.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Have just had a very special week at The Forge. Fab cottage with everything you could want from crab fishing lines and bucket to champagne glasses! A real home-from-home. Will miss the amazing view of the harbour which never failed to impress in sun and rain!

“Great cottage in great location”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great location overlooking the picturesque harbour and very short walk to the centre of the village. Some nice pubs and restaurants to try out.
Cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped. Just loved sitting in the evenings admiring the view - so peaceful and relaxing.
Mevagissey is a good base for exploring the local area - some lovely coastal walks, ferry trip to Fowey etc.
All arrangements and communications were prompt and informative and went smoothly. Definitely hope to come back again.

“High spec accommodation, great location”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Polkirt Forge is very convenient to the centre of Mevagissey and all its attractions. The cottage was perfect - it had everything we needed, and is suitable for couples or families. We were also blessed with beautiful weather which of course made our holiday even better. Thank you so much for a wonderful week.

“Lovely cottage and lovely position”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Perfect holiday. Probably would not recommend to the very elderly or anyone with mobility issues as the cottage is on a very steep and narrow road. Also the car parking is reached by 38 ( we counted ) steep concrete steps. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

Thank you for your positive review Linda. Perhaps we should mention that the car park can be easily reached by path without the need to climb or descend any steps - I often take the easy option! Glad you enjoyed your stay.
