The property

With a private Jacuzzi hot tub to relax in after a day at the beach, Respryn offers the perfect retreat for couples at any time of the year.

Situated on a hill that rises steeply from the quaint harbour, Respryn lies away from the bustle of the village yet is within convenient walking distance of half a mile.

Explore the narrow streets and winding alleyways of Mevagissey to get a feel for everyday life in this working fishing village.

Clustered with pretty cottages, curiosity shops, old inns and restaurants they lead to a charismatic quayside and harbour where colourful fishing vessels come and go with the tide. In the summer months mackerel fishing trips leave from the quay as well as ferries across the bay to the beautiful waterfront town of Fowey.

Beach lovers are well catered for with sandy beaches at Polstreath just outside the village and Pentewan, just over two miles by car or less on the coast path whilst the beaches of Gorran Haven and Caerhayes are also within a short drive.

A public footpath close to Respryn leads to the picturesque cove of Portmellon which also boasts a restaurant and pub.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project with its inspirational biospheres of tropical and temperate plants are both within a fifteen minute drive.

A detached bungalow which has been split and cleverly adapted to provide self contained accommodation for two, Respryn is practical in every respect.

The open plan living area is cleverly arranged to maximise all available space incorporating a well fitted kitchen and a small sitting area which overlooks a very attractive patio garden offering a jacuzzi hot tub for exclusive use by guests of Respryn.

A comfortable bedroom and a lavish bathroom complete the picture.

About the location


St. Austell 5.5 miles; Truro 16 miles.

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.
