  • “Although we had a lovely stay in smugglers cottage, we feel it could be improved in.”

    We had a leak in the roof in the passage from the front door and also in the bedroom window. The front door lock needs replacing, as spent a good few minutes trying to lock and unlock the door. We lite a fire, and all the smoke just bellowed into the room, so had to put it out. Also no sharp knives, to cut bread etc. Also the mattress needs replacing. Although it didn't spoil our holiday, it would have improved it no end. Thanks for a lovely holiday.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. The owner has arranged for his maintenance man to address the issues immediately. The roof and the bedroom window have been checked and there are no leaks. We believe that due to the extreme weather conditions at the time of your stay that it was the direction of the wind blowing the driving rain into the property. The front door lock has also been checked. The open fire is actually a non-working ornamental fire place. The owner will be at the property next week and will check the knives and the mattress. We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday and do hope to see you again soon Owner relations

The property

Smuggler's Cottage can be found directly on the harbour front from the picturesque harbour of Mevagissey, tucked away amid a collection of characterful cottages within a cobbled alleyway.

The cottage boasts a wonderful smuggling history and is well-appointed for a couple seeking to explore the wonderful setting of this Cornish coastline setting.

Internally, the cottage offers a tranquil scene with calming hues of blue and white to ensure a wonderful place for you and your loved one to come back to each evening.

Spend your down time within the open-plan living room, where you can curl up on the plush sofa where smugglers once dashed from the sea and accessed the cottage via the secret hatch.

The space comes with a contemporary kitchen area which houses all the essentials to whip up a delicious evening meal that can be enjoyed at the dining table.

Head up the open tread staircase to find a well-presented double bedroom, complete with characterful exposed beams and a well-appointed en-suite with a walk-in shower and basin.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, a step out the door will bring you to the harbour full of boats.

Choose to dine one evening at one of the superb restaurants, or pick up the essentials at one of the nearby shops.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, venture to the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan or hop onto a ferry and spend some time at Fowey.

Alternatively, venture slightly further afield to the Roseland Peninsula where you will find a selection of glorious beaches.

Smuggler's Cottage is an idyllic base for a retreat with your loved one.

The perfect Cornish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour full of boats.

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.
