The ground floor is also where guests can find the well-equipped kitchen which contains all the amenities required for guests to cook up a feat in their self-catering stay. Stairs lead up to the first bedroom with zip-links beds which can be configured as a super-king sized double or a twin.

Neighborhood info

Mevagissey is one of the most charming fishing ports of the South Cornish coast with is white and colour-washed cottages perched on the slopes of the hills encircling the two harbours. Many of the old fish cellars in the picturesque village have been converted to modern use but their old strong walls and the unspoilt appearance of the narrow streets retain the character of old Mevagissey. Fishing still remains one of the main occupations for the locals and visitors interested in fishing will be glad to know that many of the boats in the working harbour are available for deep sea angling and shark fishing. Shorter mackerel fishing trips around the bay are also popular. Much of the coastline adjacent to Mevagissey is cared for by the National Trust and is easily accessible. Guests can visit the ruins of Portgiskey, cottages, cellars, gardens and boatyards, abandoned in the late nineteenth century. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just outside of the village and the Eden Project is approximately 7 miles away.
