A stylish apartment in Portmellon on the sea within walking distance of Mevagissey

4 of 5
We spent 5 days at Seatons Rest in early May 2017 and it is exactly as the owners claim; beautifully renovated and ideally located in walking distance of Mevagissey. Our only negative comment is that it is on the small side and we found two additional adults staying over for a couple of nights a tight squeeze. The apartment is ideal for two persons or a family with two small children.

Another excellent holiday at Courtyard Cottage

5 of 5
This is the third year we have stayed at Courtyard Cottage and it is still a perfect holiday destination for getting around Cornwall, offering all the comforts of home. The cottage is really clean, well maintained and very modern with a beautiful kitchen and accompanying equipment. There are little things left for you that are essentials like milk, tea, coffee and sugar as well as washing up liquid, dishwasher and washing machine tablets. We found cling film and bacofoil, even some brown sauce. It saves having to pack every last thing that you would normally need for self catering. The beds are very comfortable with nice fresh linen and towels. Hand wash is left in the kitchen and bathrooms along with fresh flowers and a gift to greet your arrival. There are plenty of TVs to watch, a DVD player and X-box if you like that sort of thing. Games and DVDs are provided with an assortment of board games and books if you have a rainy day. It is a few minutes walk to the harbour which is very pretty and you can watch the fishing boats unload their catch of the day in the evening. There is plenty of information about places to visit and eat in the cottage with recommendations from other travellers. We always use the local restaurants and have not been disappointed with any of the meals. We have eaten in the Maharajah Indian restaurant, The Wheelhouse, Sharks Finn and had the best fish and chips from the chippy that we have eaten anywhere. The local bakery has lovely fresh bread every day and there is a pasty shop and local general store as well as a green grocer. There are lovely walks along the cliff paths from Mevagissey, we particularly like the walk to Goran Haven, its 6 miles return and we always stop and have a coffee at the beach cafe at GH, the public toilets at GH are now maintained by the local residents and are very clean with hand wash and decent toilet paper. We had trips out to Falmouth, Padstow, St Ives and Mousehole, maximum drive was just over an hour. I would recommend this property to everyone, although it sleeps 8, my husband and I love the space we get in a bigger property so we can have a relaxing week. The owners are very accommodating and welcoming, all my emails are answered almost immediately and nothing is too much trouble for them to make sure you will have a great holiday. We are already looking forward to our holiday in Mevagissey and Courtyard Cottage next year.
