Mevagissey, Cornwall, England
The owners' personal holiday home, Harbour Hill View has all the amenities to provide a home from home in a perfect location. Recently redecorated, the cottage is only a short stroll from the village centre with its working harbour, small individual shops, excellent restaurants and pubs, ensuring that the house is quiet, yet in the heart of the village.

There are beautiful views of the harbour and the hillside from the sun lounge, terrace and rear bedrooms, and the south-facing terrace is a real sun-trap. Night storage heaters and supplementary heaters ensure the house is cosy all year round, allowing you to enjoy lovely Mevagissey out of season.

In addition to the comfortable sitting room, there is a sun lounge from which to enjoy the views, whatever the weather. The kitchen is very well-equipped and recently refitted, whilst for...

We already know Mevagissey well but this was a new house for us. The house itself was great, well appoint and clean and tidy. The conservatory at the back gives a great view even when the wether was occasionally not good (Twice in 10 days!) The climb up the hill or steps needs to be taken slowly but only takes...

Management response:

Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mevagissy staying at the Harbour Hill View cottage for one week in June. The cottage is very well maintained by the owners and attractively decorated and furnished throughout. The rooms are spacious and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the sun lounge which has an elevated position over surrounding countryside. The patio area is ideal...

What a wonderful find Harbour Hill was! The best self-catering place we've stayed in. My sister and I booked a short 4 day break here and the cost was very reasonable even for the two of us! Harbour Hill has a lovely bright fully-equipped kitchen off which is a lovely sun-lounge, leading off to the delightful, sunny terrace overlooking Mevagissey...

Relax in our comfortable sitting room with leather sofas, TV and DVD; there is a wide selection of books, DVDs and games for all ages to entertain you, and lots of tourist information to plan your days out.

About the neighbourhood
A traditional 14th century Cornish fishing village, Mevagissey provides an attractive, quaint setting for the perfect relaxing holiday. The traditional working harbour means that fishing is still central to the village, and visitors can enjoy the benefits, whether this is eating the freshly caught fish in local restaurants (labelled by the boat which netted it), enjoying the mackerel fishing trips running from the harbour daily, or simply whiling away the hours watching the boats bringing in their catch. Mevagissey Museum, situated on the East Quay, displays the history of the pilchard industry, and the lighthouse was the first in England to be powered by electricity.

Mevagissey's unspoilt appearance of narrow cobbled streets and colour-washed houses retains all its character: craft...
