    “We have just returned from a week in Seagull Cottage, it was a lovely little cottage nestled a quiet courtyard just back from the Harbour.”

    ...

    I would say that I take on board some of the other comments the main one being the bright outside light that floods the bedroom we had to buy travel eye masks just to be able to sleep. I definitely would reccomend that a new hover is required as the one in the property is very poor. The cottage was well equipped and felt very homely. I would reccomend this cottage but please be aware the stairs are steep and a little slippy under foot. The ground floor is tiled throughout and is very cold under foot so bring your slippers! A pretty cosy cottage that would benefit from some improvements but still a lovely holiday cottage. We have already re booked to come back to Mevagissey next February but we have booked a different cottage with Sykes.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your recent stay at Seagull Cottage. There is a blind in the bedroom which will block out any outside light. Our photographs do show that the floor is tiled in the kitchen/dining area and in the text we advise that the stairs in the cottage are steep, open tread stairs, which the photographs also confirm. We will ask the housekeeper if she could check the hoover. We are pleased that you have already booked to come back to Mevagissey next year and hope that you have a lovely time. Owner relations

The property

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.

Relax with a book and a glass of Shiraz by the cosy wood burner and snugly sofa.

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.

For families and couples seeking a relaxing break with attractions for all ages close by, this divine cottage is sure to make happy holiday memories.

About the location

MEVAGISSEY

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.

Note: Check in time for this property is 4pm.
Note: The cottage dates back to the 1700's, the ceiling in the bathroom is lower than is usual and therefore the headroom in the shower over bath is restricted.
Note: Please note that the stairs are narrow and steep with an open tread.
