    “Lovely character cottage in the heart of Mevagissey”

    Backlet cottage is in a superb position in the heart of Mevagissey, in a quiet street within minutes of the harbour, restaurants, pubs and excellent chippy! The cottage is very well equipped, the owners have thought of everything, the decor is very tastefully done in keeping with its character. We loved the bedrooms, both en-suite with very comfortable beds, the extra King size bed was a bonus too! We also felt our dog was welcome too, with a pile of dog blankets waiting, the sitting room was so ...

The cottage is very well equipped, the owners have thought of everything, the decor is very tastefully done in keeping with its character. We loved the bedrooms, both en-suite with very comfortable beds, the extra King size bed was a bonus too! We also felt our dog was welcome too, with a pile of dog blankets waiting, the sitting room was so cosy with comfortable seating and a couple of evenings we lit the wood burner. Hoping to return next year and wouldn’t hesitate to book this cottage.

The property

This tastefully furnished terraced cottage is situated in the heart of the Cornish, fishing village of Mevagissey.

It is ideally located for the shops, pubs and restaurants as well as the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the wonderful coastline.

You will feel immediately welcomed on entrance to the cottage, charmed by the homely and luxurious furnishings inside.

Set over three floor, this is the ideal getaway for a family or group of friends looking to escape the usual routine.

On ground floor, you will find a sociable open-plan living room with slate floors, a cosy woodburner adding warmth to cooler evenings and a well-equipped kitchen.

Relax on the sofa with a glass of wine or a hot cup of tea or gather at the dining table for a hearty meal - truly making yourselves at home.

A staircase leads up to the first bedroom, where a choice of a super king-size double or twin is offered and the shower room rests next door.

Climb up to the second floor where a king-size double bedroom has the added benefit of its own en-suite facilities.

This thriving village offers bundles of character with narrow streets and winding alleys.

Choose from many restaurants and shops, or simply stroll by the harbour to watch the fishing boats drift in with the daily catch.

Between the Easter period and the month of September, you can take a ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey and spend some time exploring its history.

Explore the famous Eden Project and even travel further afield to the delightful town of St. Ives.

Whatever time of the year, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at this beautiful hideaway.
