Cocooned almost harbourside on the Riviera coastline, this cute cottage delivers charisma in spades! Tucked away in a little cobbled courtyard just 50 yards from the quay at Mevagissey, Seagull Cottage is a stones throw from centuries-old inns, tearooms and restaurants. Discover the quaint streets lined with fishermen's cottages, smugglers' haunts and seaside shops. A cream tea or pasty lunch is never far away after a browse around the galleries.
Fishing boats deliver their daily catch on the harbourside. Befriend a fisherman and bag a fresh lunch of mackerel, crab and lobster, purchased straight from the boat. Catch a ferry to the much favoured sailing resort of Fowey, famed for Regatta Week and Daphne du Maurier. An array of eateries, galleries and traditional inns fringe characterful lanes down to the waterside. Portmellon beach, with scenic coastal path, is a 10 minute stroll away and nearby Pentewan offers a mile of sand, perfect for surfside picnics and sandcastle escapades. Exploring from this pretty cottage is easy, with Heligan Gardens, Charlestown with historical square-rigged tall ships and the Eden Project all nearby. Tee off at the Carlyon Bay Golf Course and St Austell, five miles north, will cater for all your provisions.
Seagull Cottage is an enchanting bolthole, perfectly formed for a quintessential homestay by the sea. The accommodation, with its rustically homely interior, offers a real flavour of Cornish cheer. There is a cute kitchen and dining space with exposed stone walls and open-tread stairs leading up to the sitting room.

The double bedroom is a haven of coastal charm promising restful sleep and the second floor is home to the twin bedroom. Positioned under the eaves (with some height restriction) it makes the ideal den for adults and children alike, with PS2 games console and welcoming twin beds for double the fun.
