    “Polkirt Forge is located just next to the harbour - there are steps down to it and a tiny beach you can access at low tide which our children adored.”

    Views of the harbour and out to sea are glorious. ...

    Views of the harbour and out to sea are glorious. We loved being right in the village as you are right on top of everything. The road outside is very narrow but the owners make it easy by giving you a permit to the car park 5 mins walk away, which is very safe. We had a lot of stuff to unload, so had to brave the road which was interesting!! If you don’t have too much, best to walk through the village. The info given by the owners was comprehensive and helpful, apart from recycling which we couldn’t find. There is everything in the house that you would need, from cooking utensils to beach stuff and even though some ornaments have been taken out recently due to COVID, the house still feels homely and welcoming. The one thing I would say is that the downstairs feels a little damp, but there is a washer drier to use if necessary. There is also a washing line in the small courtyard. This is a lovely place to come for a holiday. We really didn’t want to leave!

The property

Perfectly positioned for a waterside escape, Polkirt Forge, a stone built fisherman's cottage, is a true delight.

Ideal for an escape with friends or family, or simply as a couple, this traditional and nautically-themed cottage rests at the centre of the picture perfect fishing village of Mevagissey in Cornwall.

Move from the road and into the hallway of the property, before kicking off your boots and stepping into the dining room where a sofa conveniently sits for you to sit back and relax with a warming cup of tea in hand, or sit around the dining table together to enjoy an energising afternoon snack ahead of a day of excitement.

The kitchen/diner holds all the essential appliances and utensils you could need for a week-long stay, along with a delightful decor in the theme of neutral colours and maritime adornments reminding you of your wonderful location, here you can enjoy a hearty breakfast or simply your morning cup of coffee.

The ground floor is also home to the super-king-size bedroom, which can be a twin room upon request, giving you a variety of sleeping arrangements.

On the first floor the smart master bedroom, which offers views over the harbour, this room is perfect for those seeking a romantic retreat.

Move through into the sitting room where the gorgeous views continue, here you can all gather together in the evenings when you're not out exploring.

Spend some time in the courtyard and let the fresh coastal breeze wash over you before taking a short stroll to the harbour itself where you'll be greeted by waterside restaurants, artisan shops, an art gallery, museum and even an aquarium, promising excitement for all ages.

In close reach you can also find the wonders of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, or head further afield to Truro for a day of shopping experiences and riverside walks.

With easy links to Fowey and St Austell too, Polkirt Forge is ideally placed for adventure of all kinds whilst holidaying in Cornwall.

About the location

The perfect Cornish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour full of boats. Stunning walks lead along the coast in both directions, with sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village has an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, whilst just up the road are the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey also runs daily between Easter and September. Spend some time at the Tall Ships harbour at Charlestown (7 miles) with its shipwreck museum, or among the tropical biomes of the world-famous Eden Project (11 miles). The stunning coastline, fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula are a short drive down the coast while Truro, with its shops, restaurants, theatre and cathedral can be reached by car in half an hour.
