About the property

House in Mevagissey, Cornwall, England - Quiet Location, 3 Minutes Walk From The Village Centre And Harbour Front. Parking for 2 cars. Wi-fi.

With panoramic views over the hills and village, Penmeva house enjoys a quiet cul-de-sac location above the bustle of Mevagissey, Cornwall. The valley provides a stunning setting for your stay, to be enjoyed from the large balcony, spacious sunny deck and meandering terraced garden.

It is a three-minute walk from the house down the hill to the harbour where you can enjoy an ice cream or coffee, explore the historic alleys or try your luck with the crab lines on the harbour wall. Penmeva is a comfortable, well equipped and attractive house, with proximity to the village and private parking for two vehicles making this an ideal base for families and groups.

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

The House was beautiful, clean and very comfy; we were very surprise comparing to our last experience (bad one :) ), kids loved it, the house has a great facility of barbecue; and kids enjoyed playing on the balcony. From the house it is easy to walk to the shops and restaurants (amazing seafood in Mevagissey).

We spent time on different beaches (Caerhays beach, Gorran name a few, visited Heligan gardens...)

I highly recommend.

Great experience :)

Ideal for our needs

  • 4 of 5

As long as you are able to walk up and down a hill this property is in a great location and is very comfortable. It is a little difficult to drive to - a very tight corner and narrow streets in the village or a long drive down very narrow roads the back way. It was clean and spacious and very well equipped with a lovely deck area overlooking the village. The only negative was the bunk beds were very uncomfortable for the adults that had to use them.

Great house in a lovely part of cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday staying in this property. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, Great views and great location. Only thing missing was a wardrobe in the upstairs bedroom. Also the temperature of the showers were very unpredictable and quite dangerous for children. Would definitely stay in this property again and would recommend to others

Lovely property overlooking Mevagissey

Plenty of room and lots of outdoor space, everything clean and comfortable. The hill to the town's not so bad either! Sun deck and balcony lovely for sitting out in the evenings.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Mevagissy. I booked it without knowing much about the area and am so glad I did! The house is really well equipped, clean, comfortable and close to the village. The owners provided helpful instructions and a welcome gift which was appreciated. Would highly recommend this place to stay for an enjoyable holiday on Cornwall. The walk to the village is down a steep hill which means a steep walk back up but we enjoyed the challenge. The village has a great selection of places to eat and the kitchen is well equipped if self catering. Thank you for letting us stay on your lovely house!
