About the property

A charming light & spacious renovated 100year old 3 storey red brick cottage

* Sleeps 4: has 2 bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms

*Linen & Towels included (exc' beach towels)

The cottage has the advantage of being extended in the past providing generous accommodation over 3 floors ensuring there is plenty of room to relax and is situated centrally, yet on a quiet lane, in stunning Mevagissey. Enter the property via the bright spacious modern dining/kitchen which leads off to a separate lounge with widescreen TV, DVD player plus games and books to hand. The open plan staircase off the lounge leads up to the 1st floor where you'll find the second bedroom with two zip-lock singles, with luxury bedding, which can on request be made up as a super-king size bed. The newly installed family bathroom with is double ended bath is also on the 1st floor....

A further staircase leads to the master bedroom on the 2nd floor which has a sumptuous king-size bed, again with luxury bedding, a magnificent vaulted ceiling and a superb en-suite with large shower.. Both bedrooms have ample storage as does the bathroom...

Mevagissey is a maze of narrow winding streets and within 2 minutes of leaving the cottage you'll find yourself on the harbour, the heart of the village, surrounded by many great bars, restaurants, gift shops, craft shops, galleries, cafes, the Meva' History Museum, the Model Railway & Aquarium plus numerous individually owned and well know shops. There are various boat & fishing trips on offer along with the Mevagissey Ferry which runs daily in the summer & docks at the Town Quay in the quaint village of Fowey.

Mevagissey is conveniently placed for many of Cornwall’s wonderful attractions such as:

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Caerhays Castle & Beach

Pentewan Sands

Portmellon Beach

The Eden Project

The historic port of Charlestown (where many scenes from the TV series Poldark were recently filmed) And where, at various times of the year, the Tall Ships berth close to The Charlestown Shipwreck Centre with its historical artefacts which form the largest private collection of this type on public display in Europe.

The Southwest Coastal Path also passes through Mevagissey allowing you to explore the stunning coastline..

Once time has been spent in Meva', as the locals call it, its quite simple to understand why it is call "Magical Mevagissey".....

About The Owner

Hi I'm Kathy and along with my husband Bryan we moved to Mevagissey in 2005.. We previously had very busy "city" lives up in Newcastle however we also had a long held "dream" of living by the sea in Cornwall and we got to the point whereby we decided to make it a reality....

All these years later we still love living here for many reasons not least the scenery, the weather, the slower pace of life and of course the wonderful warm, friendly people...

We bought Corner Cottage in late summer 2017 and spent 6mths of early mornings and very late nights renovating the property.. We're really pleased to say we've brought it up to a very high standard while respecting that it is a 100 year old cottage in what is still a very vibrant working fishing village...

Our aim is simple - to ensure you have the best time ever staying at our beautiful cottage so that you can kick back, relax, unwind and enjoy stunning Mevagissey... and we're on hand to make sure we provide all that is necessary to do just that.....

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

Why The Owner chose Mevagissey

Corner Cottage offers sizeable accommodation set out over 3 floors. On entering the ground floor you step immediately into the large, spacious well equipped breakfasting/dining kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a generous sized lounge with open plan staircase leading to the 1st floor where you’ll find bedroom one with twin beds which are ziplocked and can on request be made up as a very generous 6' Superking.... Very conveniently the family bathroom is situated right next to this bedroom…

Take the next stairs up to the 2nd floor to the airy master bedroom with its double king bed, beautiful vaulted ceiling and En-suite shower room..

What makes this house unique

Myself and my husband Bryan are very much hands on with the cottage in that we manage it ourselves so we are on here to personally meet and greet you on your arrival...

We also provide a small Welcome Pack to refresh you after your journey and with parking being a major issue in many seaside resorts we, at a cost to ourselves, provide you with a permit to park at Sunny Corner car park which is a 60 second walk from the cottage... conveniently you can drive to the door to unload/load know struggling through the village!!!

We fell in love with the cottage despite it being in a very poor state of repair because it is, even though its in the heart of the village, on a tranquil lane and so close to all that anyone could need while staying here.... our aim is to make your holiday a memorable one for all the right reasons so you can relax and unwind meaning you go home revitalised and eager to come back again...

Having lived here for many years we're also around to let you know the best places to go in and around Meva'...
