    “Not such a good idea to put a glass ornament in the bathroom.”

    We accidentally knocked it and it shattered on the floor ( slate tiles). It took a long time to clear away the glass. But apart from that all was wonderful!

The property

This traditional mid-terrace cottage is located in a roadside position in the centre of the beautiful harbour village of Mevagissey, with stunning coastal views and sandy beaches in easy walking distance. Shell Cottage offers a charming interior with period features spread over two floors, including exposed wooden beams and stonework, and deep-set windows gracing the lounge/diner and bedrooms. You can cosy-up in front of the log-burning stove in the tastefully decorated lounge and relax whilst cooking tasty local produce in the modern and practical kitchen.

The neat and tidy downstairs bathroom has a shower over the bath.

Upstairs, discover two characterful bedrooms each thoughtfully styled to create a comfortable sleeping environment and with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space.

On this level, you can access the walled roof garden with timber decked flooring which is your own private little haven to enjoy fresh air, perhaps with a morning coffee or a tasty Cornish cream tea later in the day.

Shell Cottage is a short walk from the harbour which boasts a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.

This is where you’ll catch the local ferry to Fowey, which runs daily between Easter and September, take a relaxing boat trip around the bay, or visit local attractions such as the aquarium or museum.

Just up the road you’ll find the Lost Gardens of Heligan – one of Cornwall’s leading attractions.

The world-famous Eden Project and Tall Ships Harbour at Charlestown with its shipwreck museum are also close by and well worth a visit.

This is definitely a one-of-a-kind cottage and holiday destination.

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.
