Guestbook comments from the owner

We already decided that we don't think we'll ever find a cottage as nice as Myrtle and a town as nice as Meva in Cornwall ever again, so we might well be back!

Great place to stay, very homely, everything provided for and well equipped.

6 of us had a very comfortable stay.

Dont be deterred by the parking / off loading situation, its no problem at all and the car park staff are brilliant so you will always get parked (we had two cars!)

Debbie was excellent and always good comms.

Mevagissey is an excellent place to stay.

Delightful cottage, very well equipped and really clean with nice views over rooftops to harbour. Quiet location but very close to the village centre and harbour. The roof level terrace was a lovely surprise and was a real sun trap, very private too. Wifi useful. Excellent customer service from the owner. Negatives - difficult to unload/load without blocking the narrow road and the car park was a few mins' walk away. However for us (family of 4 with 2 teenagers) the positives outweighed these and I would thoroughly recommend the cottage and Mevagissey. Good restaurants (we liked the portugese one in particular) and good base for lovely walks.

Mevagissey is a unique working 14th Century fishing village situated on the South Cornish Riviera coast. In the narrow streets craft workshops sit side by side with shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs which were once the haunt of Cornish smugglers. The towns of St Austell and Truro with a full range of shops and supermarkets are a short drive away. Close attractions include the world famous Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the historic tall ships town of Charlestown. Mevagissey enjoys stunning scenery, cycle trails and unspoilt National Trust beaches. Unlike most villages, it is open all year round and has some spectacular coastal walks. The Mevagissey to Fowey ferry is a fabulous way to explore the dramatic coastline. Myrtle Cottage -the perfect setting for a perfect Cornish holiday.
