    “A gem of a holiday cottage!”

    Absolutely perfect for a couple. We have been visiting Mevagissey for over 30 years and love the place. We have 4 kids and when they were young and holidayed with us, we stayed in 3 and 2 bedroomed cottages in various parts of the village. ...

    Absolutely perfect for a couple. We have been visiting Mevagissey for over 30 years and love the place. We have 4 kids and when they were young and holidayed with us, we stayed in 3 and 2 bedroomed cottages in various parts of the village. The kids have all now fled the nest and so we didn't need anything too large. My wife found this cottage several months ago when we decided to spend New Year's Eve in Mevagissey. The price was so reasonable compared to the other properties in the village. There are very few, if any, one bedroomed cottages to rent in Meva, and so I suppose this is reflected in the price. Excellent value. There was no sea view, but as we were literally 25 yards from the harbour, it was not an issue. It is the first time we've not stayed 'up the hill', so to speak, and if you know the village you'll know how high up much of the rental property is! Hard work when you're carrying a bag of shopping, so It was nice to be so close to the town centre, it's shops, pubs, restaurants, attractions and harbour. The lounge/ kitchen is well equipped with the benefit of Netflix/ BBC iPlayer TV. However, I'm not up to scratch with this modern technology and couldn't work out how to use the TV! I called Geoff the owner, and he was most helpful in explaining what I needed to do (I've now got Netflix on our TV back home!) The bedroom is beautiful, bed extremely comfortable, and and we slept so well. Despite its central location it is extremely quiet as it is on the lower right hand side of the town as opposed to the busier left side. After we returned home we realised that in our rush to beat the traffic we had left an iPod speaker and a tablet at the property. Again I phoned Geoff who said he would contact the housekeeper and have them posted back to us. He called me the next day to say that they'd also found two shirts that I'd left behind which they would also return. Absolutely fist class service. We will look forward to staying at this lovely little cottage again.

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.
