Four spacious double rooms (we used the cinema room as a bedroom) and a single bed in the children's room provided us with plenty of private space as well as the large lounge, dining, covered and open balconies with views towards the sea provided ample communal living. The large parking area was priceless as we did not have to concern ourselves with parking issues during our stay. Everything was provided for every eventuality.....a wonderful house for a three generation family. Teenagers, families and film buffs will love the extensively equiipped cinema room. Mevagissey itself was delightful, and was a ten minute walk along the coastal path or down the roads (best not to mention the climb back, but that got easier as we got used to it!) The coastal path and secluded beach (access for the agile and sure-footed) provided walking opportunities to those of us who did not paint. We made good use of the Tea on the Quay where Cornish pasties and fresh wholesome food were freely available,and run by a delightful family who made us feel very welcome and even reserved us a table for lunch on our last day and had fresh catch of the day when eating out at the Ship Inn and the Harbour which we did every night of our stay. We visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan as a group and took many photos for future paintings. We painted in Mevagissey by the quay most days and were made most welcome by local fisherman and visiting tourists alike.Our painting holiday could not have gone better, the weather was super kind to us, glorious blue skies for five whole days and a beautiful house to enjoy and come back to after a day's painting.

Leonie welcomed us with a wonderful lit wood burner and the smell of freshly baked bread.There was a small hamper full of essentials like coffee tea sugar etc. Very thoughtful . The Hut is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The Hut is so cosy you really don't want to leave, but you must explore the area. Cornwall is so diverse, the people are so friendly. We would recommend this property to stay. But we won't be telling too many people incase we can't get the weeks we want to stay here !
