Excellent apartment with everything you need for a fantastic family holiday
We have spent a fantastic week here, the accommodation is spotlessly clean and has everything you are likely to need for a week away! Lorraine and Simon were on hand for any information needed and made us feel really welcome. We would definitely come back again and I wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone!
Mevagissey is a wonderful part of Cornwall and like most places be prepared for some steep climbs, but this only adds to its appeal!
Thank you for a wonderful time!
Great apartment for Cornwall experience
The property corresponded exactly to the fotos and description. Everything was in perfect condition, with all amenities you could possibly be looking for.
We enjoyed expecially the comfort of having 2 separate bathrooms, the big living/dining area, the outdoor seating and the dedicated onsite parking directly next to the house.
I would not go there without an own car, especially to visit some essential places like Eden Project, and enabling you to do groceries shopping in the bigger supermarkets of St. Austell.
Lovely long weekend
Fantastic location, beautiful place, friendly cats😊
Fantastic apartment with all the comforts of home.
Fantastic accommodation quiet and relaxing and extremely clean would recommended this apartment to anyone thank you Lorraine for a lovely stay
Beautiful apartment in a great location
Just returned from a lovely, relaxing stay at the beautiful White House. The house is spacious, modern and immaculate with a really cosy home from home feel, lots of little extras that made our stay special. Lovely to be greeted by Lorraine on arrival and the gift of scones and Cornish cream was a lovely touch. Great location, we enjoyed visiting the harbour and nearby beaches using the picturesque coastal paths, Charlestown and Eden Project. We can’t wait to visit again and hopefully stay at The White House again!
Makes us sooo happy that you enjoyed your stay 😀
We’d love to welcome you again and wouldn’t hesitate to let other hosts know what a lovely family you are!
Great guests & the apartment was left spotless, thank you x
Nearest beach is approx 10 mins walk along cornish coastal path, breathtaking coastal views within 3 mins
Main train station is St Austell (10 minute drive)
Mevagissey Harbour 5 - 10 min walk, St Austell - 10 min drive, Truro 25 min drive, Eden Project 20 min drive, Lost gardens of Heligan 5 min drive. Falmouth / Newquay 45 min drive - (all times are approx).
Narrow streets and steep valley sides lead down to the centre of old Mevagissey where the distinctive twin harbour provides a safe haven for the many fishing boats that land their daily catch of skate, lobster, plaice and sole. In typical picture postcard style, pubs, cafes, galleries and shops cluster around the harbour walls and line the pretty streets.
Named after two Irish saints, St Meva and St Issey, the village dates back to at least 1313 and during the 1800s Mevagissey prospered on the back of the abundant source of pilchards out to sea. Around the maze of streets you’ll find plenty of seafood restaurants and there is nothing more sublimely Cornish than tucking into some local scallops or mackerel and ending the evening with a walk along the harbour wall with lights of the village twinkling on the water.
Nearby are The Lost Gardens of Heligan which underwent a famous restoration after decades of neglect and now brims with an amazing array of sub- tropical flowers, trees and plants and the Pentewan trail, an easy-going 5 mile round trip from the beach at Pentewan to the village of London Apprentice and back. The trail runs along the bed of an old narrow gauge railway which once took clay and tin ore to the harbour at Pentewan until it silted up and the railway ceased operation in 1916
